By Josie Sellers josie@coshoctoncountybeacon.com COSHOCTON – Brenda Hamilton is excited to share a piece of her family’s history with fairgoers and maybe help them find some of their own ancestors. A 101 year old quilt passed down through Hamilton’s family will be on display in the art hall as part of the vin- tage quilt category. Her great-grandmother Anna Powell helped create the quilt that bears the names of 570 people who are believed to have mostly been residents of Coshocton and Tuscarawas counties. Her cousin Harold Hixon Jr. had the quilt and then passed it on to Hamilton’s cousin Linda Boyce who loaned it to Hamilton. Hixon also shared with Hamilton a write up he put together about the quilt. In his notes he explains that after World War I, “church congregations in Coshocton and Tuscarawas counties became con- cerned about widows and orphans of soldiers who were killed during the war.” It was decided that a name quilt “I’ve spent hours indexing the names. People will be able to say a family name and I’ll be able to look to see if it is on here.” 740-622-6300 - Brenda Hamilton quilt owner “This institution is an equal opportunity provider and employer” Located at 410 Locust Street would be made and used as a fundraising project to help these families. Hamilton’s great-grandmother was put in charge of organizing the quilters. The Dresden Plate Pattern quilt has 20 panels and each square has 23 names on it. Hamilton isn’t positive, but she thinks the names along the outside edges could be people who donated money to help with the project. “I want to share this with other people to hear their stories and link histories.” - Brenda Hamilton quilt owner “I’ve spent hours indexing the names,” Hamilton said. “When I give it back I want to know who is on here. Peo- ple also will be able to say a family name and I’ll be able to look to see if it is on here.” She hopes to have her book with the indexed names at the fair with the quilt and also is creating a website to post the information on. A majority of the names come from the Bakersville, Fresno, and Stone Creek areas. While studying the quilt, Hamilton discovered part of it is dedicated to the Camp Fire Girls, there are two doctors on it, two preachers, and she is pretty sure Dr. Crile and Dr. Lower’s mothers are on it. It also bears the name of Guy W. Powell, who was once superintendent of the fair’s poultry department.
