About Elizabeth Rogers

The night before their wedding John sends a letter to Elizabeth giving her his Mamacock Farm. This letter always makes me pause for a moment. This seems to me a gesture of true love as he had no reason to give her a farm that he was getting for his marriage. Woman didn’t own the family farm if the husband was still living and even after he died it usually went to the male heir bypassing the widow. He must have really loved her, which is all the more sad considering how their love story ended. [1]
