Women Artisans in Backcountry North Carolina, 1753-1790

Record #:
An examination of women artisans in Rowan County, which in the late 18th century encompassed the entire northwestern quadrant of the modern state. While the actual number of women artisans will never be known because the business activities of some married women were run by their husbands, but the count of women artisans evidenced in county records grew in the last half of the 18th century with spinning and weaving being the most popular craft.
