Mary Jane and her mother represent women with memories of Pioneer parents, crossing the Cumberland Gap, with axe and ox cart, making trails and clearing land until interupted by Andrew Jackson to fight in New Orleans.  The peace was soon over with occupying soldiers, raiding smoke houses, pantries, and barns.  The visions of agrarian homeland was gone, replaced by dead and wounded.  There never was help or a type of a marshall plan.  Women shouldered responsibility in years of reconstruction resulting in matriarchs that reigned in unpainted houses.
