"The story has been handed down that she rode as a midwife or doctor for 40 years and, if possible, would go wherever she was called, through the thick woods and across streams.   She had a real good side saddle, fixed so it would not slip or turn, and she seemed to be a woman of great pluck and perseverance.
One time, a man called for her to go to his house.   She told him she did not know how she would get there as her horse was smooth shod and could not cross the river on ice.   Her son Hugh said to his mother, “I you think you can ride my horse; I got him roughed today.”  She told the man he could go back and she would come.   She told Hugh to put the saddle on his horse and come see her across the river.   When they got started, Uncle Hugh told his mother to get the horse to running before he reached the river as he would stick [to] the ice better.   Uncle Hugh said that she had the horse running as long as he could hear her. ‘Tis said that Grandmother Jane Woten was a small woman.   She had a nervousness in one arm, called palsy.   A few years before she died, she had to have a loop sewed in the bosom of her dress to steady her hand so she could knit.
