This is a great blog series on the life of Susan Richardson Abbott. The stories of Black women in this era are sometimes harder to tell because they are not documented. These pension file depositions give valuable details about her life. I really enjoyed it.
I’m so glad you read it and enjoyed it. Pension files are wonderful. Even better when they are contested because there is so much testimony.
