Calamity Jane's burial plot.

Calamity Jane's burial plot.
Martha 'Calamity Jane' Canary lies here beside Wild Bill Hickok at her request.
She was born in 1850 and died in 1903 and, apparently, was not a good looker but claimed to be Wild Bill's girl friend. She worked on a bull train, performed in a wild west show and was a prostitute of little repute - assumed because of her appearance !!
Wild Bill was shot in the back of the head in 1876 by a gambling rival and local rogue Jack McCall.
