Civil War Quilters: Loyal Hearts of Illinois

Jul. 24, 2014 - Oct. 17, 2014
Sunburst Quilt c. 1855, made by Jane Gaunt (Richards) Russell (1802-1889) of Rogersville, Tennessee. Hand-pieced and quilted cotton. Collection of the Illinois State Museum. Gift of Virginia Fulkerson In 1860, Joseph and Jane Russell headed a slave-holding Tennessee family, with a foothold in Illinois. Since the 1830s, Joseph had been purchasing large tracts of land around Jerseyville in Jersey County, Illinois. When their oldest daughter, Sarah, settled in Jersey County with her new husband in 1843, Joseph and Jane came along to help them set up house. The 1850 and 1860 U.S. Census, however, shows the Russells back in eastern Tennessee with the number of their enslaved workers growing by the decade. This crib quilt is inscribed: "J.G. Russell/Given to Sadie B. Fulkerson," Jane Russell's granddaughter. Sadie's father was William Houston Fulkerson, a Confederate office for Company A, 63rd Tennessee Infantry Regiment. Following the war, the Russell and Fulkerson families, along with a number of their freed slaves, settled on the Russell property outside Jerseyville. Although the quilt is inscribed to Sadie who was born in 1866, the fabrics predate the war. The quilt may have been used by older grandchildren, or Jane may have pieced fabric she saved before the war made processed cotton so scarce. This quilt is currently on display as part of the exhibition Civil War Quilters: Loyal Hearts of Illinois. Through October 17. At the ISM Lockport Gallery, 201 W. 10th Street, Lockport, IL 60441.
