Joy Ansley's great great grandmother Sarah Catherine “Kate” Allman was born October 31 1839 in Chattooga Co., Georgia to parents: Nelson A. Allman and Nancy Chambers married in 1827 in Haywood Co. NC. Kate married Stephen H. Alexander August 1865 in Chatotooga Co., GA. They moved to a farm four miles from Minlow,Georgia in Cherokee CO, Alabama and had a son Robert Hastings Alexander born on December l, 1874. He married Tenia Owings December 21, 1899 in the home of her parents in Walker County, Georgia. Both are buried in Rose Hill Cemetery in Oklahoma City.
Kate and her mother made this Rose Wreath quilt for Robert Hastings Alexander in 1887 and quilted his initials and the date as part of the quilt.Their farm house was the only house not burned by the Yankees because they fed the soldiers on Sherman's March to Atlanta. One rambunctious soldier entered the house swinging his sword and broke the glass in the door of a cupboard on the porch and cut a chunk of wood out of the cupboard. Joy Ansley (82) still has that cupboard in her apartment at Epworth Villa in Oklahoma City. I recently purchased this Civil War quilt along with another Rose Wreath quilt dated 1887 made for their son Robert Hastings Alexander with his initials on it.
After Kate's husband died in June 1907, Kate sold the farm and moved into Menlo, Georgia with her daughter Anna. The farm home and town home are still standing. Son Robert opened a two story general store in Menlo and sold groceries, fabric, dry goods, household items and furniture on the bottom floor and caskets upstairs. When Robert's son was a senior in high school, Robert sold his store and invested everything with his cousin who came to Oklahoma to drill an oil well. Unfortunately, it was a dry well and they lost everything. They sold their big fine home in 1919 and moved to Oklahoma City. claiming the children would get a better education. If truth be known, he was embarrassed to admit to his friends in Menlo his mistake.
Joy can remember her Grandmother Tenia always having a quilt in the frame in their dining room in Oklahoma City. She had her quilt pieces organized in little stacks and unselfishly allowed Joy to play with the pieces. She taught Joy how to identify colors and place them to make a pretend quilt. During the Depression Tenia made quilts to sale along with fruit cakes at Christmastime. Joy got to help by picking up the persimmons that had fallen from the trees in a park in south Oklahoma City for the fruit cakes.

Sbarry_simmsept. 6, 1931 - Oct. 3, 2011 OKLAHOMA CITY Barry Ray Simms, Attorney, died Oct. 3, 2011, in Okla. City of pleural effusion. He was born Sept. 6, 1931, in Lindsay, OK to Thomas K. and Irene Spencer Simms. His father became a rancher after a movie career as a stunt man. His mother was an original Chickasaw enrollee and school teacher. Barry was proud of his Chickasaw enrollment. In 2009 the Okla. Bar Assoc. honored him for 50 years of dedicated service. He received distinguished awards for his pro bono legal work and continued an active law practice until his death. Many thanks go to his clients for their loyalty and friendship. Barry had a zest for life. He was mischievous, energetic, bright, spontaneous, and an adventurer. Barry was a pilot and at age 79 started skydiving. Recently, he went to Dubai and flew a private plane into Iran for a client. He once crashed with his mother watching, stating she never worried again. Barry could be found exploring the Amazon, riding a camel in Egypt, relaxing in the Bahamas, or visting Las Vegas. He graduated Kemper Military Academy and served in the U.S. Army. He attended OSU, and received his law degree from OU. Barry supported many social and civil organizations such as the Registry, the Alliance, the Committee, the Arts Museum, Lyric, and Philharmonic. He was known for his July 4th hot dog parties. He had 27 years of sobriety and believed one day at a time. Barry was a Mason, a Democrat, and a Baptist.
     (Whig & Democrat Rose) patterns became popular when the Democrat and Whig parties were vying for presidency in the early 1830s-1850s. Before women could vote, they voiced their political choices through the  quilt pattern they made for their husband and guests to sleep beneath?
Most families lived in homes that had a main room with a cooking hearth. Off to one side a room was added for the parents bedroom and the loft provided a space for the rest of the family to sleep. Sometimes the youngest children or elderly members slept in the main living area which held the “large good bed.” This was the guest bed and usually was a trundle bed where visiting friends and family slept. Also travelers would stop at a home on the main roads and ask to stay the night because there were few inns. The travelers would pay for their lodgings and bring news from other towns.Women took pride in showing off and displaying her needle skills and talents on the good bed with the best feather ticks, linens and quilts. Enterprising ladies would place a sign on the main roads to invite travelers to their homes in order to supplement their families’ income.
     Elections were held in early May after the roads were passable or in early November before winter weather and when they didn’t interfere with planting and harvesting crops. Voters traveled long distances to the polling places and arrived early enough to take part in the electioneering. Everyone who had a room for guests would open their homes up to the voters. Sometimes these homes would have quilts displayed to express political support for a party. Quilts made from new fabrics were an expensive luxury in the first half of the 19th century. All the fashions leaders were the wealthy ladies who had time to make fine appliquéd quilts. Most wealthy families supported the Whig Party and expressed it with a Whig Rose quilt pattern. Traditionally it was made in madder red, pink, chrome yellow and green on white muslin. The quilters also made a version of the Whig Rose pattern that they called the Democratic Rose that was less elaborate and more folk arty and the pink sometimes would have been replaced with cheddar orange or peach like this quilt.
    Being such a beautiful appliqué pattern, many ladies even in rural areas made a version of this quilt to decorate their homes following the fashion of the time. The pattern also supported the Whig Party platform to build public schools and normal schools to train women teachers to educate children to build a better economy for the country. Public schools were a radical new idea in education that would have appealed to mothers.
     Indians used lots of orange in their quilts and quilts were part of their heritage, especially the star quilts which were used as giveaways anytime a baby was born or someone died and any event in between. The brides all made at least 1 quilt to take into their new homes for partitions or as shelters in ceremonial events and worn by healers. The Chickasaw Indians came from MISS, KY, Al & TN in 1837 in the Trail of Tears to south central OK. Known as the “unconquered and unconquerable” the Chickasaw Nation’s Mounted Regiment fought in the Civil War and became successful farmers and ranchers and built the first schools, banks and businesses in Indian Territory.

Photos and stories of Louisa and family, homes and the iconic Brown’s Department Stores are included. John A. Brown was an Oklahoma-based department store chain. begun in 1915 led by John A.  Brown as VP when the Rorabaugh Company acquired Brock's Dry Goods in Oklahoma City, and soon changed its name to Rorabaugh-Brown Dry Goods Co . They also operated successful businesses in Wichita, Hutchinson and Emporia, KS, Guthrie, OK & Decatur, ILL .

The store's original location was in downtown Oklahoma City,  bounded by Harvey and Robinson on the west and east, and Park and Main on the north and south. It opened in the 1930s. The company also operated many other stores throughout Oklahoma at Campus Corner in Norman, Capitol Hill, Quail Springs Mall, Penn Square Mall, and Crossroads Mall in Oklahoma City, as well as Woodland Hills Mall, Utica Square Mall and Promenade Mall in Tulsa.

A.O. Rorabaugh's interest was then acquired by John A. Brown and John H. Dunkin, and the Oklahoma City store then truly became Brown's, "John A. Brown's Department Store." The Rorabaugh interest included a store in Guthrie, "Brown Dry Goods." John A. Brown was a cousin of Kansan O.A. Rorabaugh. John's wife, Della Dunkin Brown, was a sister to John H. Duncan. The Brown-Duncan family came to own and operate the state's finest department. Born near Canton, Ohio, in 1878, John in 1900  moved to Emporia, Kansas, where his cousin, O.A. Rorabaugh, had a small mercantile business, and John began working there as a window trimmer. In Kansas, he got a year of college at Baldwin's Baker University and then returned to Emporia to work in the Rorabaugh store until 1907. While in Guthrie, John A Brown married Della Duncan. After the Browns moved to Oklahoma City, they had two principal elegant residences: 301 N.W. 18th in Heritage Hills pictured, and a 12,000 square foot Spanish Mansion on ten acres at 1601 Guilford Lane, Nichols Hills. Fear fueled with rumors of kidnapping John A Brown in 1933, turned Della into a recluse. She never received credit for her many civic and charitable contributions anonymously given.

While on a trip with his wife, John A. Brown died unexpectedly from heart failure on January 25, 1940, in Rochester, Minnesota. After his death, Della (who was always very active in the business) assumed the management of the store, a role which she retained until her own death in 1967. Also during Della’s tenure, plans were announced for what would become Penn Square Mall in 1955 and Brown's, along with Montgomery Wards, were to be the center's initial anchor tenants. Downtown Civil Rights sit-ins in John A Brown’s began in earnest in 1958 and continued without cessation until June 23, 1961-- the longest single sit-in campaign in the nation. The sit-in was resolved after Brown’s agreed to end bias in the lunchroom, soda fountains, and rest rooms throughout the store.

Della died at 84 years of age. An April 25, 1967, Oklahoman article reported that:  With 1,300 employees, the company ranked as the eighth largest employer in Oklahoma City in a January survey. "Her will placed control of the stores in the hands of two long-time employees, the company lawyer and tax accountant," and it would be up to them to determine Brown's downtown future.

John A. Brown Company sold to Dayton Hudson Corp., a Minneapolis retailer. The store's family name, as well as the John A. Brown Company legacy, came to a final end when Dayton Hudson sold the John A. Brown's properties to Dillards Department Stores, Arkansas, in 1984.
