1890

There is frequently seen on our streets a sad faced woman who comes to this place driving a pair of oxen and her wagon loaded with country produce, which she sells.  Frequently she is seen with her wagon loaded with cross ties.  Such an industrious woman deserves the respect and admiration of every man. She is determined to support her widowed mother and her orphaned children. While we regret to see a woman in this sphere, we admire the courage that it takes to do such things.  May the smiles of Him who protects the sparrow and who has said he would be a father to the fatherless, always linger over her. - [Athens Courier] - (Source: Hamilton Times, Marion County, AL, June 29, 1890 - Transcribed by Veneta Mckinney)
