    : Paul,

    : Thanks for the update. I have a book on Virigl Earp also and this is the first mention I hade ever read that menetioned this town. I know where it's located but don't want to wander out there if nothing can be found. I'm aware of Wyatt's mining in this area but never heard tell of Virgil here.

    : Have you been to Harquehala, AZ? Another town Wyatt looked into. Very little there but you can find foundations. Very dusty ride back in though.

    : Thanks again.

    : Tom Betts
