Celia Ann "Mattie" Blaylock born 1850 in Wisconsin and later raised in Fairfay, Iowa. She left home at the age of 16 and worked as a prostitute in Scott City, Kansas and then later in Dodge City. In 1873 while working in Dodge City, Kansas she met Wyatt Earp. Even though they had a relationship, she continued working her profession. Although they were considered married, it is believed that they were never officially wed.
Mattie, along with Wyatt, moved to Tombstone, Arizona Territory to be with the Earp brothers. Mattie suffered from severe headaches and became addicted to Laudanum, the pain killer of the day. After Morgan Earp's assassination on March 18, 1882 she left for Colton, California never hearing from Wyatt again. On July 3, 1888 she took a lethal dose of Laudanum and Alcohol. Her death was ruled a suicide.
