Re: Domestic Servant - family?
In Response To: Re: Domestic Servant - family? ()

Thank you, Lisa. It's in the 1870, Springfield, Greene Co., Alabama census, pg. 4, family #32. Domestic servant is listed as her occupation.

Henry Foster 42
Catherine Foster 45
and kids
Harriet Mcgeehee 68

I just didn't understand why such an old woman would be living with them if they weren't their relatives. Wouldn't she be living next door with her own family (Mcgeehee)?

Thanks,
Tanya
