According to a note from Frances Goodrich this "piece of coverlet discovered by Miss Culbertson in an old quilt lining." The story continues in other handwriting: "The quilt was an old one given her by her mother and had been in the family since they came to this part of the country. It is likely that this piece was woven in either Ireland or Scotland and brought over the Atlantic when the early settlers came to America … shortly after the Revolution." This piece was saved kept by Goodrich as an example of European weaving. This coverlet was likely woven in the late 1700s.
