    Occupation 1885-1888 
    Worked as Harvey Girl 
    • sometime in the time period of 1885 - 1888, Lena worked as a Harvey Girl
    • Lena was a Harvey Girl. We are not certain where she worked, nor do we know here exact dates of employment, other than it would be sometime prior to marrying Edward. Fred Harvey established his first Harvey House/Hotel along the AT&SF tracks in Florence, Kansas, in 1878. Other Harvey Houses soon followed. There was a Harvey House in Lakin, Kansas, just north of Ulysses. We think Lena likely worked here, as that makes senses, geographically. However, the now-stated dates for that Harvey House are 1879 - 1880. We do not know if these stated dates are correct - if so, then it seems unlikely Lena worked here, as she was so young (12-13), and still listed as residing in Butler County. Records for the Kansas Harvey Houses for the period of time before 1890 are scarce to non-existent. Thus, we don't know if these dates for Lakin are truly correct; nor do we know if there were other houses, now forgotten and not recorded; nor do we have a way of learning her exact date and place of employment.
