There was no rest for the dead at B'nai Israel Cemetery. Relatives of the interred, their heads bowed, some wiping away tears, walked slowly though their family plots yesterday at the venerable burial ground in Northeast Baltimore, grimly taking stock of the damage done by vandals to more than 150 tombstones: many knocked to the ground, some split in half. "It's the second time they've busted my father's tombstone," said Harold Postol, eyes brimming with sorrow, his cheeks glistening on the cold, sunny morning.

To lovers of Wild West folklore, he's Wyatt Earp - lawman, saloonkeeper, gambler, quick-triggered centerpiece of the legendary gunfight at the OK Corral. To Charles Earp Jr. of Catonsville and Pamela Earp Young of Ellicott City, he's cousin Wyatt. That the man who almost single-handedly defines the Wild West would have a couple of relatives in Maryland - and that those relatives would meet by coincidence - is perhaps not as far afield as it might seem. As it turns out, the Earp clan got its start in the United States when Thomas Earp Jr. of Ireland came to the Baltimore area in the 17th century as an indentured servant.
