The WILD women who ruled the West

In my family ancestors  —   Calamity Jane   aka  Martha Jane Cannary

In my family history research it was a surprise to learn that Calamity Jane was one of the limbs in my family tree – the branch that my maternal grandfather was from.

Just as it was a surprise to learn that on my Paternal branches was Andrew J. Still who created and taught the medical practise, Osteopathy.   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andrew_Taylor_Still

With thanks to Dean Isaacson for creating and maintaining this web page on a portion of my Daddy’s life – his rodeo days – stunt man in Tom Mix movies, and other  pictures of events in my family.  http://jackcase.com/jack-case/  Click on the photo’s – each one is separate.

One never knows ones relatives until you start digging thru history – many fun and some not so fun discoveries.  What is fun is to see some of their *traits* in your own life  —  real or not  hahahahaha

I hope this will bring some relief from the misery that is filling the news – real and Fake.

The WILD women who ruled the outlaws of the West: Stunning photographs capture the madams and prostitutes of the 1880s frontier who would stop at nothing to make their MILLIONS

  • Mary Katharine Haroney, or better known as Big Nose Kate was a prostitute favored by Doc Holliday 
  • Mattie Blaylock was a prostitute who was inolved with the famous Old West lawman and gambler Wyatt Earp 
  • Belle Brezing from Lexington, Kentucky was said to be the model for Belle Watling in Gone with the Wind
  • Mattie Silks made the equivalent of $1 million over the period of three months in Dawson City in Alaska

From famous outlaws to inspiration for Gone With The Wind, these are the notorious prostitutes and madams who ruled the men of the wild west.

Prostitutes – or ‘soiled doves’ and ‘sportin’ women’ as they were commonly known – were a fixture in western towns and cities. Almost without exception, pioneer mining camps, boomtowns and whistles-stops became home to at least one or two hookers – if not a roaring red light district.

And these fascinating images taken in the 19th century show some of the most famous scarlet women of the time – who would go on to become millionaires, national heroes and outlaws.
