A made a copy of a photo that a friend of mine had. ( His was a copy also )

I'm trying to figure out if the people in this pic are actually the names that are noted.

Hopefully there are some American history buffs on here who can tell me whether or not the names are accurate.

Would be cool if they were. All being in one photo like this

The guy in the back looks like Earp. As far as the validity, that can only be established by following the trail of this photo's existence. Just because it looks old it does not mean it also is

The city and citizens, which you yesterday described to us in fiction, we will now transfer to the world of reality. It shall be the ancient city of Athens, and we will suppose that the citizens whom you imagined, were our veritable ancestors, of whom the priest spoke; they will perfectly harmonise, and there will be no inconsistency in saying that the citizens of your republic are these ancient Athenians. --  Plato's Timaeus

Without looking for all their DOB, is it even possible that such a collection of famous names would be in such a photo together?

No, or at least unlikely, the Sundance Kid was still a measly paid Cowboy at the time...hardly a person to be on a picture with well recognizable people. Just as an example... but I could be wrong.

And I was thinking also of Teddy Roosevelt. I knew he was quite some charcter, but this seems a bit too far to be in a photo like this. I'm surpised it doesn't include Washington, Robert. E, Lee, Pocahontas, Davy Crocket and King George

If they all were famous at the same time... yes it is possible.

I thought Judge Roy Bean was a character in Clint Eastwood film, or do I have the wrong name...

Roosevelt was not poor and went on expensive hunting trips in his youth and middle age. So that would be one of the acceptable persons on the picture.

Too early for Roosevelt then. I thought he never became really famous until Spanish-American war a long time after this photo.

And you made your post above a fraction of a second before mine

No, Judge Roy Bean was a self appointed Judge, famous for hanging people for spitting on the floor. He actually existed. But he hardly hung anybody.
