That was easy! I Googled the topic. Wikipedia has a fascinating story with far more details than I remembered and mentions another woman lighthouse keeper who also took over for her deceased husband in a nearby lighthouse. The story of the Key West Light keeper is especially compelling.

The Google article has three or four good photos of the light house. That same lighthouse is across the street and down a half block from Hemingway's House. The top of the lighthouse is a great breathtaking place to view Key West from above.
