A growing list of Texas associated female first names

Texas

It is difficult to search for women's contributions to Texas in the Confederate Citizens' File because the words "woman" and "women" are seldom used in documents and thus are unavailable for annotating.  About the only way to track women in general is to search for "Mrs." or "Miss" or for female first names.  Unfortunately, that leaves out documents that mention "M. J. Smith," which could be either Mary Jane or Mathew John.  An alternative is to look for items usually sold by women, such as "pants," "shirts," "drawers," "trousers," "jackets," "socks," "coats," or "jeans" (the fabric, not the pants).  Or search for roles, such as "laundress" or "nurse," realizing that in many cases nurses were men.

The following first names were indexed by Footnote.com as associated with Texas, but since each file can have multiple similar names from various states, all were not necessarily on Texas vouchers and correspondence.  It is a place to start, however.
