Are you interested in learning more about Levy County’s involvement in the Civil War? Then join the Friends of the Luther Callaway Public Library to hear the account of one local woman, Maria A. Tresper, who lived at Clay Landing during the conflict.

Maria A. Niblack of Columbia County was just 23 years old when she met and married George H. Tresper in 1855. The couple made their home at Clay Landing in Levy County where George owned a general store, a sawmill, several cotton warehouses, and also served as the postmaster providing service to people living on both sides of the river.

The family lived a good life at this busy settlement on the Suwannee River. Over the years Maria kept an account of the activities on the river and at the invitation of the Friends, she has agreed to share her remembrances with you. Maria Tresper will be portrayed by Levy County Historian, Toni C. Collins.
