Ozella Williams credited the origin of the meaning of blocks used in Underground Railroad quilts to her grandmother Eliza
Farrow who was brought to this country "in the early 1800's".
This has proved problematic for quilt historians as Eliza was not born until 1859 (in Georgia, not in Africa), giving birth to Ozella's mother Nora in 1888
who gave birth to Ozella in 1922. Click here for more information.
