THE QUILTING REMINDS ME OF THE NORTHERN BORDER COUNTIES OF ENGLAND (NEXT TO SCOTLAND), Quilting patterns Very nice blue and white w/1/2" triangles, making up star points Attached history of Nancy Fleming Corewho was owner's father's great grandmother. Nancy was the daughter of Robert Fleming. She married Barton Core, son of Christopher Core. Nancy's family was driven from Scotland to the North of Ireland by religious persecution. Nancy and her four brothers, Robert, Archibald, William, and John came to the United States in the early 18th century and took up lands under William Penn in 1741 in Kent County, Delaware. Then they came to western Virginia in 1789 and settled on lands near the Monongahela River. Nancy and Barton were parents of 11 children.
