Her name was Kitty Leroy born in Michigan in 1850. A gunfighter, gambler, performer, & alleged prostitute named Kitty Leroy. She was best known as one of the most proficient poker players in the Old West. By the time she was fourteen she was performing in dance halls and saloons. She also had developed shooting skills that few could match, including the ability to shoot apples off people's heads. She was married 5 times, but didn't have any children. Leroy married for the fifth and final time, this time to a prospector and gambler named Samuel R. Curley. This marriage, as her others, was short. Curley was alleged to have been extremely jealous and Leroy did not help matters, as she had numerous affairs, including one with her latest ex-husband. Curley shot and killed Kitty Leroy in the Lone Star Saloon, he then turned the gun on himself.
