I have to check facts, so I am saying this off the top of my head without verification, but I vaguely recall that one woman did take over management and upkeep of the Key West lighthouse when her husband died. I am not sure the exact time, whether this was before, during or after the Civil War. I'll check it out now and see what I can verify.

I have climbed to the top of that lighthouse and toured the cozy keeper's cottage. As an oddity, that lighthouse is now landlocked.
