Stories

CustomsF131
The family came out to Oregon (from Missouri) in the 1860's. 2 children stayed and traveled, 4 returned to Missouri in 1869. Father In Law went back to Missouri to settle the estate of a deceased family member (Charles Sternes) about 1920. Only thing he brought back with him were quilts! Fayette has had the quilt since 1971 - when her mother in law (Inez Sterrnes) passed away.
