Born in Oklahoma in 1879, Dunn became an outlaw when she fell in love with George Newcomb, a member of the Doolin Gang. Dunn participated in the gang by providing them with ammunition and supplies when members could not go to town. Once, Dunn saved Newcomb when he was wounded by U.S. Marshals. She dodged open fire and held off the Marshals with her own rifle until he could get to safety. Dunn’s brothers, who were bounty hunters, eventually turned Newcomb in and Dunn settled down with a politician.

I don't know about the first pic, but Rosa Dunn married Charlie Noble. He and his brother Tom were in the posse that killed Doolin. I don't know if he went on to be a politician. Her criminal career is probably over rated. The second pic is of Cattle Annie and Little Breeches. Annie McDoulet and Jennie Stevens, who actually were a couple of little holy terrors in the outlaw days. (Good reference source, 'West of Hell's Fringe', by Glenn Shirley.)
