Genealogists Rock

Never had so much fun at Cedar Schoolhouse in Weatherford with the genealogists. They loved the Civil War Quilts & stories I brought. The signature 1929 fund-raiser quilt from Independence, OK Hi School contained some of their relatives names they'd been researching.
They personally knew some of the Chenoweth clan who homesteaded near-by, of which famous singer/actress Kristen Chenoweth is included. Here's a replica of the famous Chenoweth Civil War Eagle quilt worth $8-12,000 that's on the cover of Oklahoma Heritage Quilts.
Signed a book or two for everyone attending with 100% of sales going to Weatherford's local Historical/Genealogy Museum and their local food bank.
