While cousin Cindy was in Salt Lake City digging up everything she could find on our Piggott ancestors she found the book "The Salt Lake City 14th Ward Album Quilt, 1857" by, Carol Holindrake Nielson. Included in this book is a three page history on my 2nd great-grandmother, Elizabeth Edwards Cannon, and her mother, Mary Edwards Cannon Taylor, as well as photos of the quilt blocks that they made. In her awesomeness she sent me a photocopy (thanks cuz!).
Apparently Elizabeth used her step-father's last name which I did not know until I saw her embroidered signature in her block.
How awesome to be able to see a sample of their needlework. Would sure love to see this quilt in person. This book is actually available at the following places:
