Annoyingly Specific History Question

Does anybody know any good print or online resources for life in America from the late eighteenth to early nineteenth century? I'm kind of specifically looking for info on how unmarried young girls were chaperoned back then, particularly for traveling. I keep googling relevant terms and not getting any hits that cover what I'm after. I'm sure there must be a huge database somewhere, but my search skills are failing hard today.

This is for a short story that may or may not even get finished, so no time constraints are involved. Any help is appreciated.
