    Respectable single women in 19th century America could not earn their own living and were financially dependent on their family. Therefore, Lizzie and Emma, aged 32 and 42 , who were still single in 1982, lived at home with their parents and did not work. Like other women at that time, they had limited opportunities. They could volunteer at church or perform community service, but their principle role was to wait for a man to step forward and propose marriage. Of the two daughters, Lizzie was more involved in the community. She taught Sunday school and was active in the Women’s Christian Temperance Union, the Ladies’ Fruit and Flower Mission, and other organizations. She kept herself busy, but she was not happy.
