Though "Featherlegs,” as she was known, was seemingly well liked by area residents, it is doubtful that the area citizens would have built a monument to her during her heyday. However, she was seemingly perceived to be an "important” part of history along the Cheyenne-Deadwood Stage Road when the monument was erected in 1964.
