    That is so interesting and that someone in Germany has some, as well. Maybe she could connect up with David, too.

    That is awesome. My grandmother was an artist and painted and sold paints all over the western united states. I hope someday to find a few of her paintings. I am always looking at yard sale, thrift stores and etc. Glad you could be apart of his history.

    Jacquie, I really enjoyed this story. Please don't stop putting these things on here when you have them. That's all our history. It's a small world isn't it? I just received 2 quilt tops from an aunt who had them for a long time. My Mother has passed, and one of the tops is before 1925 that her sister had hand pieced so I know it is at least 87 years old because the sister got killed in a tornado in 1925. Thanks

    DeMaris - did she sign her paintings? What was her name?

    It's amazing how many little miracles come together because of the web. You must feel wonderful to help a person with such a sense of pride in his family.

    Strange things happen, don't they? Glad the templates will be reunited with the grandson. Thanks for sharing.
