This woman's son had to have his leg amputated because she wouldn't pay for his medical care. She was so desperate for money she committed forgery and perjury. But to no avail. She spent her life in squalor, filthy dresses, and eating nothing but irregular graham crackers to save money. She was Hetty Green, the Witch of Wall Street, with a fortune estimated at 17 BILLION (modern) dollars at the time of her death. Her daughter later donated most of the fortune to charity. WOW what a story....

Hetty Green (November 1834 – July nicknamed "The Witch of Wall Street," was an American businesswoman, remarkable for her frugality during the Gilded Age, as well as for being the first American woman to make a substantial impact on Wall Street.
