section of quilt

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.

        I was 5 years old when this quilt was made.  My cousins and I think it
was made to raise money for the organ for the Aldrich Baptist Church
which was being built at that time.  I have mentioned the people who
were related to me, and their relationship.
        The lady who repaired it for me, lives between North Franklin and
Treadwell.  Her name is Minnie Tuller Doring and she owns the quilting
frames that  this quilt was made on."

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.)
