This 1868 photo is entitled "Magby Peterson and his Nanny." The little girl may have been considered fortunate to be chosen to work as a nany rather than a field worker. However, house servants were usually isolated from their families and community. She may have never lived with her parents again after being given this job. Florida State Archives.
