Pinkerton Detective Agency

While we were at TTRV we went to the Rendezvous of Gunfighters in Tombstone, where we met this very interesting lady.
Kate Moore, she also had many aliases, was the first lady detective with the Pinkerton Detective Agency.  I don’t think Pinkertons were overkeen on employing her but as she pointed out she could go where no male detective could go.
Sadly there doesn’t appear to be a great deal of information about her, but it is known that she had a very successful career and among other things was instrumental in foiling a plot to assassinate Abraham Lincoln.

Have fun, we are!
