Description: Wife Walks 60 Miles to Visit Sick Husband

Date: August 23 1888

Newspaper published in: Hartselle, AL

A WIFE’s faithfulness deserves honorable recognition at all times, and a beautiful illustration of this too in frequent domestic quality comes from Pennsylvania. Abe Buzzard, the Welch Mountain outlaw, is serving a twelve-year term in the Eastern Penitentiary. Last week he fell sick and sent to his wife to come to him. She had no money and lived sixty miles away, but she walked the entire distance in two days, bringing her two twin daughters with her. She made forty miles of her journey the first day. Surely there is reward somewhere, in this world or the next, for such loyalty as this.
