We recall a family of real but largely forgotten women in American history. All were descendants of Elizabeth Taylor and Peter Blow. Their lives were full, far-flung and unscripted, emblematic of the nation’s course over five generations. Our women are mostly fortunate in love, and marry good men. They are motivated. They know death, even murder; and they live with slavery and its aftermath.
