Mollie BRENNAN

Mobeetie Cemetery
Wheeler County,
Texas

Killed January 24, 1876, in a gunfight in Mobeetie. She was a young blue-eyed, black-haired beauty lady Gay Saloon girl. She jumped in front of Bat Masterson and saved his life in the fight between Bat and Corporal Melvin A. King of Fort Elliott. This is the fight where Bat received his leg wound and started using his famous cane. (Mobeetie was then Sweetwater City.)
She was about the first one buried in this cemetery somewhere near this marker.
