This quilt was obtained by my Great Aunt, Miss Martha J. Hotaling of Oneonta, New York, prior to 1975. The following is a transcription of two handwritten pages, penned in 1975, by Martha J. Hotaling. The layout in some instances may indicate relationships among people. For this reason, I'd like to present it in the most meaningful manner. I have made a computer graphic showing a small section of the quilt so people can see what it's like, and understand layout variations. --Ann Roberts Allison, Iowa, July 30, 1998
Notice: 31 July 1999:
The quilt was donated to the Delaware County Historical Association in Delhi. They have promised that it will be made available for viewing with advance notice.

Her name is Minnie Tuller Doring and she owns the quilting frames that this quilt was made on." Martha J. Hotaling May 10, 1975 Transcription of Signatures: (Names appearing on the same line are on the same quilt patch. Rows go from top to bottom and left to right. In some cases, relationships may be inferred by the proximity of signatures to each other. Some names appear more than once. Signatures of small children were done by the parents. Every attempt has been made to correctly read the signatures, however, some were very difficult to decipher and are indicated with question marks.)
