As I look back on all my ancesters I think I admire Eve Ann more then
the rest. Richardson was off fighting with General Lee and she was
home taking care of the children. By the time the Civil war started she had 10 children and 3 died very young. I can not imagine what kind of life she had. At least eight of the children were living with her when the War started, Richardson gone for 3 years, I wonder how she supported her family. Richardson did not accept pay the first 2 times he served.

Her oldest children John and James 2 sons of a previous marriage, Susan was 11, Peter; 9, Jilson 7, Levi and Maragaret 6, Alexander and Sarah were 5, little Richardson was a toddler, Isabella, Jefferson and Mary were born during the war.

I know that James enlisted the same day Richardson did, I am not sure about John. I wish there was a way to look back in the past.

Everyone I have talked to says that Richardson was a man among men, but I have yet to hear one word about Eve Ann. Why is it that the women in our past do not receive credit for their part in our families. As I look through the history some are listed "Unknown," with no record of their ancestry. I feel that they are as important in the family structure as the men and should be recognized for their sacrifices, I believe these women should be honored. I can see how their children grew into strong, self~sufficient men and women and I am proud to be a decendent of Eve Ann.

Eve Ann deserves a hand, I don't know any woman today that could handle 17 children. Let alone not having all the modern conviences.

I for one want to know WHERE I came from and these women are a very important part of our heritage.

God Bless you Grandma Eve, you were quit a woman.
