"The oldest quilt in the WRVM's collection was made in 1832. The quiltis red and green on a white background. Pieced blocks in the TurkeyTracks pattern alternate with white blocks quilted with wreaths andcrosshatched lines. This quilt was made by Damara Todd Lockridge. Bornin 1796 in North Carolina, she married John Lockridge in 1822. During the period the quilt was made, the family lived in Illinois. In the1840s the family moved to a farm in Iowa. There, Damara Lockridge diedin 1857. The quilt was given to their son, John, who moved to theEnumclaw area in 1884. Over the years, the rest of the Lockridgechildren settled in the Auburn-Enumclaw-Buckley area. The quilt was passed down in the family and was generously donated to the museum by Jane Gattavara in 1989. We are proud to feature the Lockridge quilt inthe new exhibits at the museum."

In 1850 John and Damey Lochridge moved to Clayton County, IA but three of their children, Isaac, Samuel, and Mary Jane stayed with their uncle, Reuben's family. John and Damey's youngest son, Benjamin Cates Lochridge was listed as part of the honor guard who flanked President Lincoln's coffin in the rotunda during his funeral."
