Buffalo Bill Cody's granddaughter dies

Jane Cody Garlow Keane of Mariposa, the only granddaughter of showman William "Buffalo Bill" Cody, has died at age 77.

Keane, who died Monday, March 30th, (note: California death records show March 23, 1987), was born at Cody's North Platte Nebraska, ranch, Scout's Rest, and moved to the northwestern Wyoming town named for her grandfather with her family as a young girl.

Keane had two brothers - Fred Garlow, who died in 1985, and Bill Cody, the showman's last surviving grandchild.

The children were raised by their grandmother after their parents, Fred and Irma Garlow, died within four days of each other, during an influenza epidemic in 1918. Irma Garlow was Cody's daughter.

Cody died in 1917.

Keane did not return to Cody for some time after graduating from high school in 1927 because she was not particularly comfortable about being the granddaughter of Buffalo Bill, said Paul Fees, curator of the Buffalo Bill Museum in Cody.

She later married Robert E. Keane, 26 Aug 1961 in Los Angeles County, California.
