For ORNERY PEOPLE?? Aunt Kate, who killed a Yankee with a stick of firewood

Late in life Catherine [Stutts Richardson--1777-1876] lived with her grandson, Thomas Benton Killen. While in her 90s she asked to be taken to Florence [Alabama] to buy new boots and was told she would have to wait a few days until the work was finished in the fields. She saddled a horse and rode by herself for the new boots, proving she retained her strong constitution until her death.
