I work at an historic house in Virginia that we interpret during the Civil War. There is a family story that a Union soldier was somehow left behind in the area during the war and was taken care of by this family. They became friends with his wife and later she came to visit every summer. There is also a picture taken of her at the house in the 1890's. She was said to have been a Doctor Atherton. I figured there must not have been very many lady doctors at that time so I was wondering if anyone had any information on her. Thank you.
