Voice: Needs information on quilt blocks

May 18, 2002

Several years ago I was given friendship quilt blocks that were my grandmother's from the year 1936. I am hoping that your readers could give me some information regarding the women who made these blocks. My father, Audy Waldrop, remembers some, but not all of them. These women all lived in the Valley in 1936. They are: C.B. Heath, D.M. Ingram, Mattie Ingram, Hattie Spear, Della Daniels, Georgia Oliver, Hattie Cunningham, Jennie Browder, Ita Young, Monique Baer, Susan Meadows, Mattie Halley, Martha A. Poor, Jessie Hahn, Annie Johnson, Effie Keating, Dosia Luallin (my cousin's grandmother), Effie Miller (my great aunt), Mary Waldrop (my grandmother) and Elizabeth Powell. Any information your readers can give me will be appreciated. I want to preserve as much family history as possible for my children. Thank you for your help.
