From the Alvin and Carolyn Nuckolls estate in Oklahoma City, Ok. As I was told at the estate sale, the family owned Nuckolls Drilling, Round House Overalls( a dry goods store in Shawnee, Ok) and a car dealership at different times in their lives. Alvin lived in Shawnee, Ok then Oklahoma City. They moved to Oklahoma City in the 1970's. Also they may have lived in Stroud. Carolyn's mother, who was Mrs Fouchee collected quilts and as I was told paid ladies in the Stroud area to make quilts in the 1920's-30's to help them out in the hard times. More information will be provided with the quilt. Oklahoma City, Ok. estate
