Kentucky legislature limits 1838 school suffrage law to white widows

Since 1838 Kentucky had served as the model for including women in the franchise for school board elections (taxpaying widows, single women and guardians of school children - with no specific reference to the voter's race - see 1838 KWSP Timeline posting). The earliest woman suffrage activists often referred to this partial suffrage as a part of the first step to gaining full citizenship rights for women.
