Cody and his Sisters

In bringing his lawsuit against 102 innocent purchasers of land once owned by his grandfather, William F. "Buffalo Bill" Cody claimed that he was doing it, not for himself--that he had more than enough money--but for his sisters. Cody had felt an obligation to take care of his sisters ever since their father died in 1857 when Cody was just 13 years old. This photo is of Cody with four of his sisters. From left to right are: Eliza, Helen, May and Julia. The photo was taken some time prior to the death of Eliza on June 28, 1902.
