Nellie told me her mother had made the quilt and that it was over 100 years old. This was probably 7 or 8 years ago. I would venture to say the quilt is possibly 110 years old and older. Nellie was born at Leslie, Mich, and later lived in or around Reading, Mich. before moving to Hillsdale with her parents and brother, at the age of 12. She lived at that same address for 72 yrs. She and her brother never married, they and their parents lived at 34 Short St. and after their parents died, they continued living their the rest of their lives. Nellie's mother's name was Elmira (Frazer) Kibler, born, 1851 and died 1921.
