    Fourteen years after Wild Bill Hickok’s death, in 1900, an aging Calamity Jane arranged to be photographed next to his overgrown burial site.

A crack shot, the 6-foot-2-inch, 200-pound Fields wore a .38 Smith & Wesson strapped under her apron.

She was a major singer-actress in the 1880s earning up to 5K a week and when she died in 1924 she left an estate worth 4 million. She donated a fountain to San Fran at Market & Kearny where people meet to mark the anniversary of the 1906 earthquake.
