Women worked hard clearing the land and farming it, in many situations by themselves with the children, so their husbands could take jobs to supplement the family’s income. They would also take care of the livestock, gardens, children, cooking, cleaning, preservation of the food and seeds and all of the other farm and household chores. The women were the foundations of the homesteads. They were formidable pillars in the communities.
