So how’s this—Kevin Bacon and Wyatt Earp?  Bacon is married to actress Kyra Sedgewick.  She is the great granddaughter of Endicott Peabody, a well-known educator and pastor of the 19th and 20th Centuries.  Peabody lived and built a church in Tombstone in 1882.  One of his friends and supporters was…Wyatt Earp.  Easy, huh?
