About the Author

Susan M. Guy was born and raised in Jefferson County, Ohio.  Following in the footsteps of her father, retired Wintersville Police Captain, Robert “Red” Nottingham, Susan was a Cross Creek Township Police Officer for fifteen years, earning the rank of sergeant.  Since 1994, she has been employed by the state of Ohio as a correctional officer.

Susan’s hobbies include genealogy and writing, which she often combines to tell the stories of persons long passed, believing that everyone deserves to be remembered.  She was inducted into the Fort Steuben Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution in 2009, and serves as public relations director for the Tri State Writers Society, a local writers’ group.  She credits the group and its founder, local author, Karina Garrison, for asking her to write a short story assignment on prostitution in Steubenville’s Water Street red-light district.  The story took on a life of its own as the urge to dig for more and more information took over.  The result became this book, Mobsters, Madams and Murder in Steubenville, Ohio, (The Story of Little Chicago).Susan Guy1

IN 1922, JEFFERSON COUNTY, OHIO LED THE NATION IN PROHIBITION OFFICER MURDERS: MOST OF THEM STILL UNSOLVED

Gambling, prostitution and bootlegging have been going on in Steubenville for well oveIMG_0193_tweaked-2_tweaked-e1400268624225r one hundred years. Its Water Street red-light district drew men from hundreds of miles away, as well as underage runaways. The white slave trade was rampant, and along with all the vice crimes, murders became a weekly occurrence. Law enforcement seemed to turn a blind eye, and cries of political corruption were heard in the state capital. This scenario replayed itself over and over again during the past century as mobsters and madams ruled and murders plagued the city and county at an alarming rate. Newspapers nationwide would come to nickname this mecca of murder “Little Chicago.”
