    Notes 
    • In a letter from Lydia Bell Senter Hawthorne to her niece, Mary Lois Peck Howard, she states:

      "Grandmother [Mariah M. Baker (1823-1910)] was a carpet weaver and had a large room there in our lot and a big, big, large loom made of shined wood. I used to fill the shuttle with the carpet rags for her. She sewed the carpet; 25 yards covered a room from wall to wall. She had to cut it and sew it all together and get straw and put it under it all colors and kind of checker board or striped, had to wrap the chain on stretchers. Was very interesting, when I was 14 years old, mother bought our first imported wool carpet and velvet couch. Gee, I thought we were rich.

      I sure did have a beautiful childhood, everybody doing so many interesting things.

      Grandmother often told me George Washington was her cousin. She came from Virginia her maiden name was Baker. In those days, Kentucky was far far away from us. No way to get there only by horse and buggy or train."
