How many people were in the OK Corral gunfight and what were their names?
The Gunfight at the O.K. Corral was a gunfight that has been portrayed in numerous Western films. It has come to symbolize the struggle between law-and-order and open-banditry and rustling in frontier towns of the Old West where law enforcement was often thin, and where some of the urban-vs.-rural and North-vs.-South tensions of the American Civil War were still very much active.
The actual event occurred on Wednesday afternoon, October 26, 1881, in a vacant lot, known as lot 2, in block 17, behind the corral in Tombstone, Arizona Territory, United States. Some of the fight also occurred in Fremont Street in front of the vacant lot. Some thirty shots were fired in thirty seconds.
Although only three people were killed during the gunfight, it became more famous than many other gunfights that resulted in larger numbers of people killed, such as the Four Dead in Five Seconds Gunfight, the Going Snake Massacre, and the Gunfight at Hide Park.
Wyatt Earp, Morgan Earp, Virgil Earp, and Doc Holliday fought against Frank McLaury, Tom McLaury, Ike Clanton, Billy Clanton, Billy Claiborne, and Wes Fuller. Ike Clanton, Claiborne, and Fuller ran away from the fight, unharmed. Both McLaurys and Billy Clanton were killed, while Holliday, Morgan Earp, and Virgil Earp were wounded. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/gunfight_at...Eight.

Ike Clanton, Billy Clanton. Tom McLaury and Frank McLaury.
After the Cowboys had threatened to kill Wyatt, Morgan, Virgil, and Doc if they didn't get out of Tombstone, the whole town watched to see the outcome. They knew that the Earps and Doc would not run. On October 26, 1881, Virgil received word that the Cowboys were gathering at the O.K. Corral, and that they were armed, which was against city law. Doc met the Earps on Fourth Street on their way to the O.K. Corral and demanded that he be allowed to join them in their little walk. Five men, potential killers, lay in wait. When Wyatt Earp and Billy Clanton opened the battle, Doc shot Billy in the chest, then cut Tom McLaury down with a double charge of buckshot. The life was blasted from McLaury before he struck the ground. Although, Wyatt allowed Ike Clanton to run from the fight scene, Holliday was not so generous. He threw two shots at Ike as he fled, missing him narrowly. A bullet from Frank McLaury cut into Doc's pistol holster and burned a painful crease across his hip. Doc's return shot smashed into McLaury's brain.
Less than thirty seconds after the opening shot, three men lay dead and three were wounded. Doc had shot each of the dead cowboys at least once. Virgil had been shot in the leg and Morgan through both shoulders. Only Wyatt Earp had survived the fight untouched.

Okay, this isn't my usual forte, but everyone says eight, while I get nine. The three Earp brothers and John Henry "Doc" Holiday fought Frank McLaury, Billy Clanton, Billy Claiborne (who ran when the first shot was fired), Ike Clanton (who threw down his gun and ran, leaving his brother to die), and Tom McLaury, (who tried to run, but was shot in the back).
