history of the
|Eva Mae Breneman|
1882 - 1970
Eva Mae Wheeler was born July 14 1883 in Woolsey South Dakota.She married Edward S. Breneman Jan 22 1902 and moved to a farm near Brooklyn Iowa. She spent most of her life being a farmer's wife and a mother to her seven children. She was a devout Christian and attended a little country church every Sunday with her family.
In her spare time she loved to make quilts and there was always a quilting frame assembled in the "parlor" and many winter evenings were spent sewing the blocks together for quilts for her beds and for her children in later years. Yes, I think you could call her a "quilter".
