I am attempting to identify a lady by the name of Cora SHILDERN. Her name was found on an old family album quilt, which was made in 1933 and 34. Every lady who's name is on the quilt is a close relative, but this one lady cannot be identified at all.

The quilt was a family effort, and included members of the ROE, TEAGUE, STOCKTON families. All other women on there have been identified.

I can find absolutely NO clue as to who this Shildern lady was. The quilt was made in Star, Mills, Texas, and my mother could remember playing underneath it as the women quilted. Unfortunately, she never got around to telling me who this one lady was.

Cora Shildern may have lived in either Mills County or Hamilton County, TX - this is where most of the women were living at this time. However, she may have traveled from Oklahoma, since there were also relatives living there.

Can anyone help identify this lady at all? Any information would be greatly appreciated! Thank you -
