RARA-AVIS: Early Female Writers/Detectives

Can anyone give me a basic list of the very earliest female writers/detectives who were not in the "drawing room" or cozy genre? I don't want to open a "what's hardboiled and what isn't" discussion, but I'd like to know who the earliest female writers/detectives were that were influenced by the early pioneers such as Hammett, Chandler, Daly, and others.
