|Sarah Cannon ~ Cactus Basket|
Sarah Cannon’s third child Dema was the first white child born in the Entiat Valley. There was no medical doctor to call on for Sarah’s confinement; there was still no doctor when young Edward developed pneumonia and died as a consequence. Sarah and Thomas had nine children in total; four daughters and two sons lived to adulthood.
Sarah Cannon lived to the age of 72 and died on 11th December 1936, four months before the quilt was completed. Lena Wallace moved to Malaga in 1934 so Sarah was probably one of Lena's first friends. This block was possibly one of the first blocks Lena exchanged to make her quilt.
