Description

Phoebe Ann Mosey was born in a log cabin in Greenville, Ohio, on August 13, 1860.  Her skills as a sharpshooter with the Buffalo Bill Wild West Shows made her a superstar.  When she was only eight years old, Annie Oakley started hunting and trapping to help support her family, as her father died when she was only five.  Her skill as a markswoman contributed to her mother᾽s ability to pay off the mortgage when Annie was 15.  Several years later she married Frank Butler, a noted marksman and dog trainer, after beating him in a shooting contest.  When Frank and Annie began performing together she took the stage name, Annie Oakley.  In 1885, the couple joined the Wild West Shows and within a few years, Annie was the highest paid performer next to Buffalo Bill Cody.  In a 1922 shooting contest, at age 62, Annie hit 100 clay targets in a row from 16 yards.
