Wichita's Dixie Lee
The Civil War provided the most popular alias adopted by prostitutes in the old west, Dixie Lee, not because the ladies were Southern but because these were the two most "romantic" names which they could adopt after the war. Wichita's Dixie Lee was the most popular madam in town, despite the fact her establishment could not rival the house at 33 Water St., the brothel of Besse Earp, wife of Jim Earp, elder brother of Wyatt.
Wichita was prospering, along its red light district and it's "soiled doves." Dixie Lee enjoyed a short but prosperous reign, dying in 1875 from "galloping consumption" and leaving behind an estate estimated between fifty and one hundred thousand dollars. Her alias clouded all knowledge of legal heirs and only after a considerable search had ensured did her lawyers locate her father. A country minister from Southern Missouri, his religious beliefs did not appear to present a problem in accepting the inheritance, even though he expressed shock over the manner in which the fortune had been amassed. As Whitey Rupp, owner of the famous Keno House, wryly noted, "The wages of sin are a damned sight better than the wages of virtue."
