The quilt donor, Charlie Meyers, remembers sleeping under quilts when he was a young boy, living in a dirt floored log cabin. This quilt was made by Madeline Tabasash, born 1857 in Emmet Co., near Cross Village. Her parents were Francis and Mary Tabasash. Francis Tabasash was a Civil War veteran who served in Company K, 1st Michigan Sharpshooters.
