I don’t know of any authenticated photos of Tombstone’s outlaw cowboy Curly Bill Brocius, but I have seen bogus photos attributed as depicting him. Contemporary descriptions state he was a big guy with dark, curly hair and a scar on his cheek.

Marshall Trimble is Arizona’s official historian. His latest book is Wyatt Earp: Showdown at Tombstone. If you have a question, write:

Ask the Marshall, P.O. Box 8008,
