Western Women: Nellie Cashman

In 1800s mining camps, petite, persuasive Nellie Cashman, with a lyrical Irish brogue, opened boarding houses and restaurants within a matter of days upon entering town. Her ability to serve appetizing and affordable meals lasted over 50 years.
This article chronicles her life as she travelled the U.S. and Canada, and eventually settled down in Tombstone, opening a lodging house.
