Elinore Pruitt Stewart

Elinore Pruitt Stewart was born in Oklahoma on June 3, 1876. She married Harry Cramer Rupert in 1902 and moved to a homestead in the Indian Territory. In 1906 she was living in Oklahoma, where she had a daughter, Mary Jerrine. She then moved to Denver, where she worked as a housekeeper. In 1909 she moved to Wyoming to work for Henry Clyde Stewart, whom she subsequently married. She filed for a homestead of 160 acres for herself and she worked that. What Elinore Pruitt Stewart proved is that even in the roughest of conditions where working the land was tremendously hard, a woman could achieve the results that were the equal of a man. It also proves that Elinore Pruitt Stewart was not an ordinary woman but that her wits and determination very much compensated for any lack in muscle power. Letters of a Woman Homesteader tells the story of her life there.
