Remembering the Mountain Maid of Roaring River

For those who enjoying reading a little Ozark History:

"Perhaps it was Jean Wallace’s claim of clairvoyance that drove her into the Ozarks’ wilderness. She came to hide in a cabin tucked among the trees; one faraway from her East Coast origins. But as plans often do, hers didn’t work out.

Because the world found her anyway.

For nearly 50 years, hundreds of locals came to Miss Wallace’s door, their lives dictating their journey more than their feet."

Jean Wallace hated cameras, but she did pose for this portrait near her cabin in the 1930s.

How fascinating! One of the things that struck me the most was when she returned to nursing for a while during World War I. But, not in Missouri. She had lived in that little cabin for more than 20 years, but during the war returned all the way to Long Island, NY to perform her nursing duties. I'm just struck by what that must have been like for her after so many years living alone in a little cabin in the Missouri woods.
