Hell On Wheels Dominique McElligott I hate that they killed her off! It was nice they portrayed such a strong woman back in those days. t would have been nice to see what things she could have accomplished.
Olive Oatman, first known tattooed white woman in the U.S. ~ Oatman was 13 when she travelled from Illinois to California with her Mormon family. On the journey, the family were ambushed by a Native American tribe, who killed all but Olive, her sister (who lated died of starvation) and her brother (who escaped). After being sold to another tribe, as a slave, she was tattooed and taken in as "one of their own". She was 'rescued' 5 years later.
