I don't have a source but the "Girls think of Everything" book I just got
references it as a controversy. Maybe contacting the author will lead to
something.

"1793 Catherine Littlefield Greene (controversial) supplied Eli Whitney
with
the ideas for the cotton gin"

Catherine Thimmesh; author. She lives in Minneapolis, Minn.
Melissa Sweet is the illustrator and she lives in Rockport, Maine. (She
might know the authors number)

The publisher is Houghton Mifflin Company in Boston.
By the way the ISBN # for Julie Pearl is 0-395-93744-2
I would call the author myself. Go investigator!
