Now THAT'S a Job!
I was indexing this morning before church. They were passenger lists from the late 1800's. One woman, no age given, listed her occupation as "spinster." Ten minutes later I found another "spinster." This second Irish lass, however, was the ripe old age of 19. They called 'em young back in the day! Also, I can't help but wonder if there was a shortage of American spinsters in the 1800's, so we had to bring more in?
