She was the first African American child born in the Wyoming Territory
Damange Tolliver Duesse was the first Black child on record born in the Wyoming Territory. Her family's affluence is apparent in her clothing and the accessories of the household that surround her in this picture, thought to have been taken in the 1890s.
