La Maupin Time Line

This page is mostly for my own use in tracking my progress in incorporating the various sources into my own version of the the life of La Maupin. It provides me a check list of most of the major events in her life, with short notes as to the details. The exact meaning of the first couple of columns varies over time, but in general an X in the first indicates that I am up-to-date on that event. The second column is generally used to track the progress of may additions to this page. It lists the events, and the time place and people involved according to each of the sources. In most cases, I've chosen a specific source to use on the authority for that event. Both the main and other sources have hyper-text links to the source.

Currently, my sources are:
