Systeria Gaines Makes Quilt In 1861

I love a good piece of family trivia, and that is certainly what I found this week in a 1936 issue of the Comanche Chief. The only problem is that in 1936, it was hard to get more than a Mrs. Somebody from a newspaper so you are going to have to do some research yourself.

About Fredda Jones

Fredda Davis Jones was raised “in the country” in Comanche County and learned very early that creativity and innovation are traits that can flourish even in small-town Texas and that with enough effort, indeed nothing is impossible, including being married to the same man for over 40 years! Rickey and Fredda have 2 children, 5 grandchildren, and a crazy life that includes sitting in the bleachers several times a week. The rest of her time is spent creating great content for texansunited.com and marketing small-town Texas.
