"turn for nursing," she did a vast
amount of good during the war
and many were the weary miles
she rode side-saddle to the sick
beds of, the women and children
who succombed to the hunger, cold,
and exposure of the hard winters
of the war.
While her husband was gone with
the army, Avaline, her children,
and her aged uncle, who could hoe
but could not plow, put in their
crop and raised enough corn to
feed, not only her own family, but
the families of other weaker wo
men who had either not foreseen
the. hard winter, or else had chos
en to forget it .until it was upon
them. This generous woman divid
ed one hundred bushels of corn
with her neighbors at one time,
but the "too-greedy" women were
guilty of bragging that when that
was gone, they would go to her
- crib and "press" her corn. With
her black eyes snapping, tall,
slender, dark-haired, dark-skinned,
Avaline spread abroad the word
that, if necessary, she would sleep
in her corn crib -with her shotgun
and that she would .not hesitate
to use it. Evidently she spoke con
vincingly, for no one ever tried to
steal her corn.
At harvest time, that first year
of the war, someone brought some
sheets of iron from Georgia, for
the purpose of making syrup boil
ers. Avaline mounted her horse and
rode ten miles to obtain one of
these sheets and carried it home
with her. After the boiler was
made, she ground (on a home-made
. wooden cane mill) and boiled off
80 gallons of molasses. In four' days
the molasses was stored in barrels,
and twb weeks later her fourth
child was born.
Such feats of bravery and en
durance were characteristic of this
woman's entire life.
When Avaline was about SO
years old, she and her husband,
with their eight children, moved
from Big Ivy creek to Macon
county where she spent the re
mainder of her life. Until she was
an old woman, she rode side-saddle
over the hills, visiting and .nursing
the sick. When a horse was not
available, she walked. Is it any
wonder the entire countryside lov
ed her?
Although her praises are unsung
and her acts of mercy and bravery,
like those of many other women of
her time, have gone; unrewarded,
because of her perserverance, cour
age, and gentleness, . my great
grandmother is my favorite of all
Civil War heroines.
