Quilt Heart

Rev. Cordello C. Herrick
Locke, NY Methodist Church
Friendship Quilt, Circa 1888

Quilt Chest

A quilt, made about 1888 was presented to Reverend Cordello C. Herrick and his wife Emily Elizabeth Taylor Herrick. It is speculated that the quilt was made either to welcome the new minister (appointed to the Locke Methodist Church in 1888) or to celebrate the birth of their first child, Ada Emily Herrick who was born July 22, 1888 in Locke. Ada Herrick attended Syracuse University, graduating in 1910 with a four year degree in Piano and Theory of Music. She married Herbert E. Yury of Seneca Falls, a photographer and lived in Auburn NY the remainder of her years where she taught piano to hundreds of young students, was an organist a several churches and conducted piano recitals for over 70 years.

This Quilt contains 56 primary panels (8 by 7) and 42 interior panels (6 x 7).  
Fifty-three primary panels and 14 interior panels are signed for a total of 67 signed panels. The measurement of the quilt is approximately 72" by 82". An Image of the "Friendship Quilt is at the bottom of this website.

I will gladly send a JPG formatted digital picture of the panel containing your ancestor's name in exchange for genealogical information on the individual.
