Matilda's Arizona death certificate.

From Carolyn (#47062093) who got the info from "Images of America; Pearce and Sunsites" written by my friend Susan Ballard among others.

"At 6 feet tall and topping the scales at 200-plus pounds, Minnie Bignon was first an entertainer, dazzling audiences by performing in pink tights, then an entrepreneur. With husband Joe, she owned the Bird Cage Theater in Tombstone and later, the Crystal Palace. With the decline of Tombstone's mining industry, the couple moved across the Dragoon Mountains to Pearce."
