Birth: 1845, USA
Death: Nov. 16, 1925, USA

The famed Skunk Women.Claimed to have been married 4 times,Major Hahn was her 1st husband,a man D'Sullivan was her 2nd husband, he was hit by a train,it is said Chrissy brushed his body with a broom before he was buried.She was called the Skunk Women because she had many of them as pets,as well as a crow,dogs,etc.An eccentric,she always wore the same black dress and had finger nails so long they looked like racoon claws.It is said in the process of training her pets skunks,she would often get sprayed.As one man was quoted "She was considered the dirtiest woman in the world."Chrissy had not taken a bath or changed her dress in over 25yrs.
She was often seen heading to the swamp/marshes early in the morning and returning with a full gunney sack at sunset.Sympathetic women helped care for Chrissy in her later years.A County nurse came and gave her ,her first bath in many years,instead of helping the bath contributed to her death.She died of pneumonia 10 days later.
