      She married Clinton Burke in and gave birth to a daughter named Jane. An excellent series to get you through the cold months. Before Calamity Jane became a legend, she was Martha Canary, orphaned when she was only eleven years old. Yuma, the hottest point in the U.

      Historians do not accept that either the marriage or the child existed. Tillett, carried her off the train, [20] a bartender secured a room for her at the Calloway Hotel, and a doctor was summoned. If said child had actually existed, he or she was said to have been born September 25,and given up for adoption at a South Dakota Catholic school. It is also believed that as a teenager she occasionally engaged in prostitution, as it was more lucrative and always in demand. Many answers have been offered by historians and storytellers.

      During the following several years she wandered about the West, working as cook, dance-hall girl, camp follower, and bawd and doing whatever necessary to earn a living. Those who knew her said she was infatuated with Hickock, though he had little use for her personally. It was on Goose Creek, Wyoming where the town of Sheridan is now located. On occasions of this kind the men would usually select the best places to cross streams.
