A while back I read an email and responded about the Pinkston's. I also
remarked that I had a family/neighbor quilt made by my Grandmother Mary
(Amy) Elizabeth (Carey) Thrasher and put together and quilted by my Mother
Fern (Thrasher) Taylor that had many old Wiseman/Oxford area residents'
names embroideried on the blocks. Someone emailed me and asked for a list
of the names and I promised them as soon as I could. I have recently had
major back surgeryand am recooperating, but did get a chance to make that
list, so here goes - I'm sorry it took so long and that I forgot who I
promised it to. Please forgive!

Each block had the name and sometimes date hand-embroideried so they were a
little hard to read. Each chose their own pattern, but most are flowers -
all colors. This is a treasure to me. My Grandmother passed away in 1950
when I was a year old, but she would hold me even after she had a stroke she
would think her arm was me and say "I didn't know you put the baby beside
me". In the 1980's my Mom's older sister in New York decided since I was
the oldest granddaughter and the only granddaughter while my grandparents
were living that I should have the quilt top. She sent it to my Mom to give
to me. Mom put it together and hand-quilted it. It's such a treasure and I
do know most of the people whose names are shown on each block. Maybe you
will recognize someone too.
