In Jack Larkins' book "The Reshaping of Everyday Life", the author clearly explains the progress, hard times, disease, slavery and new ways of life between 1790 to 1840. The paper shows that the book presents us with a good understanding of how hard our ancestors must have worked to offer us a better life in the future.

From the Paper:

"People married between 19 and 23 usually, and had huge parties to celebrate their marriage. After a year of marriage the couple usually started having children. It wasn't unusual for a couple to have seven or eight children. When some children were born, it wasn't until the child was a few months old before the parents would name it. Risk of death was great during the child's fragile first months so the parents would try hard not to get too attached."
