overcoming obstacles why i chose this person and interesting fact

One of her overcoming obstacles would probably be when she lost her husband to a gunpowder explosion during the militia. I chose this person because i wanted to know more about her and her life. Betsy was married 3 times but all three times her husbands died leaving her being a widow. Later, Betsy died on January 30th, 1836
