    Notes 
    • Maggie was born on Friday the 13th but considered it lucky.

      Her death certificate lists the cause of death as lung cancer, although it was not suspected before she died because she had never smoked in her life. She hemorrhaged from her lungs.

      It is my belief that both Margaret and Mary, daughters of Tabitha & Francis, were named after sisters of Tabitha. Mary was the namesake of Mary Catherine Barr, the eldest; and Margaret was the namesake of Georgia Margaret (P. for Peg) Barr, the youngest. Maggie's middle name, Cynthia, is very similar to Jantha/Anthia, another sister of Tabitha as well.

    This quilt was made by my Maternal Grandmother, Maggie Wade, at the Sr. Center. It was raffled and won by my Paternal Grandmother, Bettie Chestnut. The Senior Citizen Center is just up the block from both grandmothers' homes, and now their granddaughter, Sylvia Albaugh, is the Martin County Sr. Center Director.

    Tabitha Freeman quilted this quilt when my grandmother, Maggie Wade, was only 8 years old. Maggie helped quilt this, and since she was born in 1904, the quilt is 105 years old.
