Why Quilts Matter

**********************************************************



As promised in my post of Monday, June 17, 2013, here is a tenative and partial list/roster of names on:

LONE STAR BRAGGIN' RIGHTS: Freestone County,Texas Culture and History documented on cloth.


If you are into genealogy...(or not) , or are from Freestone county, Texas and have ancestors who live or resided here, either now or in the past....one or more of the names might ring a bell. If by any chance you do recognize a familiar one, I would be most appreciative if you would be kind enough to share some details about the person/s' background, to help me fill in the gaps of my research on this wonderful old relic and bring its amazing story to life for future generations to enjoy. Thanks ahead of time for any help on your part as readers of this blog. The information can be shared with me via my email: syncopatedaccents@yahoo.com. 

ENJOY!!!
Sherry Ann
