Comment on Sled by Jason Onerheim http://discussions.mnhs.org/collections/2013/03/sled/comment-page-1/#comment-404013 Jason Onerheim Mon, 26 Aug 2013 13:22:27 +0000 http://discussions.mnhs.org/collections/?p=11546#comment-404013 Thanks for the question Jamie. The sled was made by the Sherwood Bros. MFG. CO. of Canastota, N.Y. The sticker on the top reads: "SHERWOOD / AUTO / BOB" and has a picture of a boy riding the sled down a snowy hill. I turned on a photo of the top sticker and you should be able to see it at the link (above the legacy logo) in a few days. Thanks for the question Jamie. The sled was made by the Sherwood Bros. MFG.

I cannot read the writing on the sled from the picture. My dad has one that we are trying to restore to its original condition and the boards on ours is completely worn out.

Quilt historians agree that the log cabin pattern was not named until 1863 and that the popularity of log cabin quilts grew as a commemoration of Lincoln's death. However, silk quilts pieced in this style were made pre-Civil War. The fabrics in this quilt date to the 1840s-1860s, the backing fabric (which is not pictured) is an 1860s style striped silk dress fabric and the maker, Silence King Woodbury, died in 1864. All considerations which prompt us to give this quilt a circa 1860s date. Be sure to check out additional quilts on the Society's website at Collections Online. You make a valid point.

My great-grandfather Hugh Rowlands and Speed's mother Jane were brother and sister. Hugh's obituary even mentioned Speed as his nephew. A number of old and fragile photos of Speed are in our family photo albums. Maybe some are from his flights to Milwaukee, WI as family lived in nearby Hartford in those days - though I am not sure I could match the biplane specified in his flight logs to the biplane in the pictures.

There are two sets of records that may interest you. See this URL for an inventory of Fergus Falls State Hospital staff records, dated 1891-1998. http://www.mnhs.org/library/findaids/ffsh009.pdf. Also,there is a set of personnel service records, dated 1925-1940, of the Division of Public Institutions. Here is a summary of the records. Physical Details 4.0 cu. ft. (4 boxes). Records documenting various state personnel, particularly those at the state’s public institutions. The majority are personnel service record cards (1925-1939) for the state’s institutions, listing employee name, address, position, salary, brief statement of duties, data on previous state service, education, training, and personal and family information. Also State Employees Retirement Association deduction cards (1929-1939) and payroll deduction records on State Relief Agency and State Emergency Relief Administration paid employees (1939-1940).
