His commanding officer was a man named Wyatt Berry Stapp. When Nicolas' third son was born, he named him after this officer, Wyatt Berry Stapp Earp. Morgan would be murdered in March, 1882. Doc Holliday would die in Glenwood Springs, Colorado, from tuberculosis in November, 1887. Virgil, who survived an assassination attempt on his life in Dec. 1881, would die in Goldfield, Nevada, in 1905. Wyatt would live well into the 20th century, dying in Los Angeles in 1929. He is buried in a Jewish cemetery in Colma, California.
