History

"In 1820 the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth arrived in Union County to establish a school beside the Sacred Heart log chapel." "As St. Vincent Academy for girls became firmly established a large portion of the original land purchase was turned over to the Sisters of Charity in order that the academy might be more self sustaining."[1]

pp. 30-31 "During the same year, a far more successful foundation was made in Union County, Kentucky. To this point, half way across the State from Nazareth, Sisters Angela Spink, Frances Gardiner and Cecily O'Brien journeyed on horseback. This was the customary mode of travel, as but few of the roads were made and those were remarkably bad. The Sisters carried tow aprons sewed in the shape of bags, containing a few articles of clothing, their entire baggage. Father David probably accompanied the party. Notwithstanding their difficulties, the journey to Union County was not without amusing incidents. The country through which the little company passed was thinly settled, and chiefly by Protestants to whom the three "nuns" were an unfamiliar sight. The pilgrims stopped here and there, always meeting with a kind reception; a night's lodging was never denied. The old Kentucky farmers had begun to establish their proverbial reputation for hospitality; if the shelter they could give was sometimes primitive, the generosity with which it was offered compensated in great measure for the lack of comfort." "After their arrival the Sisters began the Academy of St. Vincent's on a farm [the Alvey farm] destined for the use of the Church, land afterward purchased by the community. The surrounding country was but recently settled, hence the Sisters had to undergo many hardships. Before their arrival, the house intended for their residence had been rented by a couple who declined to relinquish it; therefore the Sisters were forced to occupy an uncomfortable log cabin till the house assigned to them was vacated. After having ridden a hundred and fifty miles, their first labors were to make their temporary lodging decently habitable. Their fare was Spartan, as was their toil, equalling that of first settlers; no pioneer women have more remarkable deeds to their credit. At last their initiative, their courage and patience were rewarded. A thriving boarding school was permanently established. Sister Angela Spink, the leading spirit in this foundation, possessed almost masculine strength and endurance. She toiled in the field and woods; she reaped her own harvests, thus helping to provide a livelihood for the other Sisters and the means for building a school and for making things decorous and comfortable. In a few months two Sisters were sent to reinforce the original colony, so promising had the academy already become."[2]

An entry in The Catholic Almanac for 1848 showed that the school run by the Sisters of Charity taught reading, writing, arithmetic, English grammar, geography, history, plain and fancy needlework, marketing, lace work, bead work, drawing and painting for $76 per year or $19 per quarter. They also taught music and piano for an extra $24 per year or $6 per quarter. In 1848 there were seven Sisters and 35 students. Sister Elizabeth Suttle was the Sr. Servant. [3]

Sister Superiors at St. Vincent's Academy were Sister Angela Spink, followed by Sister Rose and Sister Margaret Bamberry; then Sister Frances Gardner for four terms of six years each. When she first came to St. Vincent's she was the music teacher. Sister Isabella Drury followed Mother Frances, and then Sister Elizabeth Suttle was Superior for a long time. Sister Scholastica Fenwick held the position from 1863 till 1873, when Sister Helena, now Mother Helena was appointed. In 1879 she was elected Mother Superior of the order, and Sister Augustine Callen was appointed. Sister Augustine has been at St. Vincent's since 1866. [4]

Mary S. Cunningham Logan attend St. Vincent's Academy from 1853 to June 1855. She wrote about her experiences at St. Vincent's Academy and some stories about the slaves at St. Vincents. "I saw the nuns walking about in their flaring white caps of the Order of Saint Vincent's, and their sombre black gowns. The priest, Father Durbin, was in his garden, walking up and down bareheaded, saying his prayers. The church was built in the form of a cross, and was gray with age. One arm of the cross was the convent and the other Father Durbin's home and study." "In those days we had the cabins of the slaves in the rear of the main buildings of the school." "We used to take our finery and deck out the pickaninnie and mammies in harlequin colors, and enjoyed seeing them sally forth to attend parties, religious meetings, and to make visits among their colored friends." "Memory brings back incidents in the lives of these slaves that are as vivid as if I had witnessed them yesterday. Nearby, if not all, of the negroes belonged to the slaveholders in the neighborhood. Among them was Uncle Harry, the overseer's best hand on the big farm connected with the convent. His wife, Aunt Agnes, was the head cook for the girls. We all loved Aunt Agnes, who slipped many dainties to her favorites. She and Uncle Harry had four or five little children. Her old master died, and the sons who inherited the slaves were reckless. They sold Aunt Agnes to some "slave-traders," who visited that part of Kentucky, picking up "likely niggers" to take them to the New Orleans market. Great excitement followed. Uncle Harry rebelled; the sisters pleaded with the buyers to let them keep her but they heeded nothing. They came with a sort of grocery wagon, seized Aunt Agnes, tied, and bore her away. She fought them like a tigress and screamed as loud as she could. The children screamed and cried so that the girls discovered what was going on, and, before the sisters could stop them, they rushed out to rescue Aunt Agnes. Seeing them come pell-mell, the brutal men grabbed hold of her and tried to bandage her mouth. The sisters could not bear to hear her cries, and they, too, joined in the pleas for mercy for the poor, innocent creature who was being torn away from her husband and family. The men ordered the driver to whip up the horses, and they galloped away, Agnes's piteous cries reaching us above the clatter of the horses' feet. Sister Isabella led us into the church to pray for Agnes, while the tears were streaming down the cheeks of sisters and girls." "Uncle Harry was never the same. He was sullen and insubordinate to the overseer, who, he thought, had something to do with the sale of Agnes. Soon afterward he and the overseer had some trouble over something which the overseer had ordered Uncle Harry to do. The overseer struck Uncle Harry with a blacksnake whip, whereupon Uncle Harry went at the overseer with an axe, and came near decapitating him. From being one of the most docile, respectful negroes, Uncle Harry had become a veritable demon. Hearing the mêlée, Sister Isabella ran out to try to restrain Harry. He told her to go into the house; that he would not touch her, but he must be let alone. Our classroom was near Sister Isabella's office and study, and, hearing the loud talking, we ran out to see what the trouble was. I can never forget what a very demon incarnate Uncle Harry looked, as he stood there in a threatening attitude, every muscle tense, and his wild eyes on the alert for a sight of the overseer. We were, of course, frightened, but knew Uncle Harry would do anything for us because of our kindness to "Aggie," as he called his wife. Two or three of us walked up to him, and, taking hold of his hands, led him to his cabin, promising him that we would get Sister Isabella and Father Durbin to send the overseer away. We bathed his old black back with warm water, and Sister Genevieve brought soft linen cloths and soothing lotions to bind up the wounds made by the whip. Sister Isabella persuaded him to go to bed and stay in his cabin all day. The overseer was glad enough to take flight and quiet was restored." "These refreshments were often served at our impromptu dances on Saturday night, when Uncle Harry and his friend Jim played the fiddle for the girls to dance. We passed around the hat, and, I think, paid them for munificent of fifty cents apiece for music furnished for an evening's entertainment."[5]

Slaves at Sisters of Charity of Nazareth: "Like many Southern communities, the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth owned slaves. Some, refusing to be separated from the mistresses, had accompanied women who entered the order. Some were part of the dowries of candidates."[6]
