|Birth: ||Sep. 5, 1878|

One of ten children of William H. Dunn and Sarah C. (Brenner) Dunn, she was their youngest daughter. She was fourteen years of age and living with her mother, stepfather, and younger brother in Ingalls, OK TY when the shootout between the US deputy marshals and members of the Doolin gang occurred. Often said to be the sweetheart of one of the outlaws, much has been written about Rose. She was dubbed "Rose of the Cimarron" not because she was a sweetheart of an outlaw, but because she could ride a horse better than most men and loved riding her horse across the sandbars of the Cimarron River which ran close by to where her brothers lived.
She married her first husband, Charles Noble, four months after her mother died in 1897. Shortly after the 1900 census, she and her husband, and two of her brothers moved to NM to begin a new life away from any mention of the outlaws. Charles died in 1930, she remarried to Richard Fleming in 1946. They then made their home in Lewis Co., WA.
Rose had no children.
