I found this little muffin tray last week after I had been admiring Brenda's at the Cozy Little Cottage.for months... It's a soft faded color of green that I love, and I hope she doesn't mind me borrowing her idea. I come here to read the stories and see the pictures, see what you all have been up to.
I got an interesting email this morning...Seems there's a guy researching a part of our history for a PBS program...hmmmm...that's pretty cool.
Well, there was a group of ladies in Tennessee that wanted to take part in the war.
Perhaps they were bored or jealous of the fact they couldn't take part.
So they started their own all female company and call themselves the "Rhea County Spartans"
These gals must have had a lot of grit...they went thru some pretty mean scrapes with the enemy.
Mary Isabel Keith Whaley was one, and they show a Rachel
Howard Howell, This Rachel later married my great-grandfather, Thomas Whaley, making Mary & Rachel sister in laws.
I know she was involved with them,someone well versed in our family tree told me years ago.
Like lots of the census and things, they spelled her last name wrong. Oh Well...
And then out of the blue, I get this email from a stranger...
And now I'm feeling like a detective again.
I wanna go and search it out. Find out more about these extraordinary women....And the search is on..
