I am a direct decendent of the famous "Lady of the Night" and wish to find out more information about her. Please can anyone help? Mae West played out her story in a stage-play and then on the silver screen.

I have just come across a small amount of material regarding Diamond-Tooth Lil that belonged to my great-grandfather. As a young man, he cowpunched out West and met her at that time. In fact, during a bar-room brawl at her establishment, he had the tip of his little finger shot off.

The material includes published items about her as well as a letter from an associate of hers to my great-grandfather in the late 1940s, as well as a letter from my g-g back to that associate recalling Lil.

My sister took care of Lil in a nursing home in the 60's. She talked a lot to Lil and was told numerous stories by her about her life. Contact me and I will tell you some stories. She talked about her little brother a lot. She felt responsible for his death. He was about 2 or 3. He fell out a window 3 stories up while she was watching him

My mother is burried a few feet from Lil and I see her stone every time I visit the cemetery. I had done some superficial research on her a few years back and have been curious ever since. I did a search tonight and wow a whole lot more info. I live in Yakima and would be very pleased to speak from you and learn more.

I do hope to hear back from you soon.

thank you

My mother is burried a few feet from Lil. I always wonder about her. I would greatly enjoy an opportunity to learn from you what you might have picked up. I live in Yakima and not far from the cemetery.

Hello Carrie,

My name is Kirk Ornstein and I've been putting together a history of my family. There are a number of accounts that suggest that Diamond Tooth Lil (Honora Ornstein) was a family member. I would be interested in speaking to you to discuss and try fill in some of the gaps I have in my research and to share any information I might have that could help you in your search.

Best regards,

Kirk A. Ornstein
