Mae’s Special Quilt

Quilt overviewBeginning this article a couple of months ago, I thought would be pretty straight forward.  Boy, was I wrong!  It has been slow going!   I know that the volume of names and dates may make for tough reading but I felt compelled to “make the connections.”  This story has been written for a much larger audience than my immediate family and I wanted to make the connections clear so that other branches of other families could find their connection to the quilt too!  Please let me know if you find errors.  I was dealing with a lot of people and dates and some are likely to be wrong.  Contact me if you see an error.  These surnames are especially well represented in the quilt – FORTENBERRY, SIMMONS, ALFORD, ELLZEY, and SCHILLING.  Choose “Mae’s Special Quilt” from the blogroll on the right.  It is a PDF and can be viewed as a PowerPoint from full screen using the page up and page down keys.
