Hanging of Frank Clark

Hanging of Frank Clark

Here is a bit of a morbid post for everyone! This is the public hanging of Frank Clark at the Clark County Courthouse in Kahoka, Missouri on Nov. 27, 1903. These photographs were found in 2008 in the walls of an old house in Salisbury, Missouri and were donated to our historical society. These have never been copied before and I would like to thank them for letting me do so.
On July 25, 1903 Frank Clark, "assumed the heinous form of assault" on Miss Ollie Hess who was just less than 17 years old in "a lonely hollow" west of her home. At the back door of the courthouse a scaffold was built and a 14 foot tall stockade to keep most of the public from viewing it. Even though the all of the boards were pulled off which provided a clear view to a couple of hundred people. Tickets were supposed sold even. Walking out of the courthouse door he lightly patted the trap door and clearly said, "Old boy I'll be your friend forever." Frank was 22 years old and up on the scaffold he spoke briefly to everone. "In a clear and steady voice, pitched high enough that all could hear, he sounded a final warning before plunging to his doom. He confessed and said he was sorry for it: said whisky did it and admonished all to take warning against drink, bad habits, and company, not to ramble or gamble, but to remain at home and obey their mothers. He said he was prepared to go." Immediately his limbs were tied and the noose adjusted and the black cap drawn over his head and the trap door sprung and he shot down 6 feet and 8 inches like an arrow. His neck was not broken by the fall and he strangled slowly. The body was allowed to hang for several minutes before the sheriff cut the rope down. He elicited many favorable comments on his calm nerve and his earnest warnings against drink. Earlier in the day he had said he had never been in serious trouble before. He said that his father was a Cherokee indian and his mother was a Mexican. He was said to have been cheerfully conversing with the crowd below through the sheriffs window above earlier also.
By the way, the courthouse has been torn down to the first floor and will post its destruction soon.

Meaghan's quilt. (story included)

Meaghan's quilt. (story included)

I finally finished the re-working of this quilt.

I got the quilting bug somewhere in the mid-90s when my bigger kids were small. Meaghan was a toddler, if not a barely walking baby. I had already started a quilt for Sarah (handquilted, still unfinished) and decided that Meaghan needed a quilt too. Besides, she kept running off with the softest or cutest fabrics, stuffing them in her crib.

I originally whipped this up in a few days, possibly as little as three. No pattern, I just had dozens of strips of fabrics someone had given me. They had got them from a bedding manufacturer as waste and ordered it by the garbage bag full. I just grabbed from my stash, whizzing the strips through my then-new serger, cutting the larger sewn strips into blocks, rearranging and sewing back together until it was big enough. Some pieces of fabric leftover from small dresses and pajamays made their way in. I had originally layered it with regular poly quilt bat, and sewn together two large pieces of bright clown fabric sheeting (I'd never use it for anything else) for the back. I quickly tied the layers together with pink embroidery floss. I did a fast and loose job of binding, cutting the back bigger , and folding the edges around to the front and quickly stitching them down. My grandmother, who taught me how to sew and quilt, pronounced it "passable".

Five years ago, when we moved here, I noticed that the seams were coming undone on the front, the back was worn, the stuffing loose where it wasn't bunched and the hastily folded corners poking out and dragging everywhere. After many years of being loved to death by a little girl, and many trips through the washer, it was showing its age.

I took it apart.

I found new filling, an old twin poly duvet middle from Ikea, and a new white flannel backing that used to be a sheet we never liked. The former clown backing had been pronounced too scary now. ;)

I sent it of to a lady who would machine quilt anything you gave her, for $25 and up. My mom said she'd finish binding it, then she never got round to it and niether did I.

Until today.

"My quilt!" Meaghan squealed when I dug it out. I'd just finished overhauling my long-unused sewing machine and was itching to get back behind the pedal. Meaghan sat across the table from me as I worked. This time, I did a more careful job, one that was now backed by years of experience. It only took twenty minutes or so.

I remembered when she was so little she barely spoke, but she grinned so wide wrapped up in her quilt, lost in its folds. After removing all the pins that had stuck in it far too long, I picked it up and draped it round her shoulders. It barely covers her now.

"Here you go, baby." I hugged it round her best I could.

"Thank you, Mommy." She smiled. It still keeps her warm.

Wedding Quilt

Wedding Quilt

It only took me about 6 months but I've finally pieced together the scrappy log cabin signature squares from our wedding. I love how it came out. It's busy and not everything goes together perfectly, a perfect symbol of our life together.

It ended up being a good size to fold in half and drape over our banister. It could also be a wall hanging but I am not quite sold on that yet.

While sewing it together I loved again reading all the nice things that people wrote for us. It's good to feel loved sometimes.
