DONOR RELATES THAT THIS BEDSPREAD WAS USED WITH A QUILT THAT WAS UPON HER MOTHER'S BED IN COALDALE. THE NAKAYAMA FAMILY WAS ORIGINALLY FROM VANCOUVER BUT MOVED TO COALDALE FOLLOWING THE SECOND WORLD WAR WHEN THEY WERE INTERNED AT SLOCAN CITY IN THE INTERIOR OF BRITISH COLUMBIA BY THE CANADIAN GOVERNMENT. THE DONOR'S FATHER, REV. CANON G.G. NAKAYAMA, WAS AN ANGLICAN MINISTER IN VANCOUVER, AND THEN ESTABLISHED THE CHURCH OF THE ASCENSION IN COALDALE IN 1945 WHERE HE SERVED UNTIL 1970.

FOR MORE FAMILY HISTORY, SEE P19950067001-GA. DOUKHOBOR ARTIFACT. *UPDATE* IN 2010 NICOLE HEMBROFF, COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT, CONTACTED ELSIE MORRIS NEE KONKIN (WHO DONATED THE ARTIFACTS ON BEHALF OF HER MOTHER) IN ORDER TO OBTAIN MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE HISTROY OF THE OBJECTS AND THEIR CONNECTION TO THE DOUKHOBORS OF SOUTHERN ALBERTA. SEE BELOW. ACCORDING TO MORRIS, THE BEDSPREAD WOULD HAVE BEEN MADE BY ELIZABETH (NOHORNOFF) WISHLOW SHE WOULD HAVE DONE ALL OF THE WORK BY HAND. BLANKETS OF THIS TYPE WERE NOT USED FOR WARMTH. THEY WERE USED FOR DECORATION OVER TOP OF A MORE UTILITARIAN BLANKET. MORRIS REMEMBERED THAT THE HOUSES HAD GREY, MUD-PLASTERED WALLS. DOUKHOBORS USED ITEMS MADE FROM VIBRANT COLORS IN ORDER TO BRIGHTEN UP THEIR HOMES. FOR MORE INFORMATION SEE PERMANENT FILE. *UPDATE* IN 2017 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT RUTHANN LABLANCE CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF CLOTHING, INCLUDING AN APRON DONATED BY ELIZABETH KONKIN. THE FOLLOWING BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION WAS COMPILED USING ARTICLES FROM THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD. ELIZABETH KONKIN AKA ELSIE MORRIS IS THE DAUGHTER OF WILLIAM KONKIN AND ELIZABETH P. KONKIN (NEE WISHLOW). ELSIE WAS MARRIED TO TERRANCE GORDON “TERRY” MORRIS. TERRY PASSED AWAY AT THE AGE OF 88 ON OCTOBER 25, 2012. WILLIAM KONKIN PASSED AWAY MARCH 3, 1977 AT THE AGE OF 72. ELIZABETH KONKIN (NEE WISHLOW) WAS BORN IN CANORA, SK ON JANUARY 22, 1907, THE DAUGHTER OF PETER AND ELIZABETH WISHLOW (MAIDEN NAME UNKNOWN). AT THE AGE OF 6 SHE MOVED WITH HER FAMILY TO A DOUKHOBOR SETTLEMENT AT BRILLIANT, BC, THEN LATER HER FAMILY MOVED TO A DOUKHOBOR SETTLEMENT AT SHOULDICE, AB. IT WAS HERE THAT SHE MET AND MARRIED WILLIAM KONKIN. IN 1939, THE COUPLE MOVED TO THE VAUXHALL AREA TO FARM UNTIL THEIR RETIREMENT, AFTER WHICH THEY MOVED TO LETHBRIDGE. ELIZABETH PASSED AWAY AT THE AGE OF 93 ON APRIL 8, 2000. SEE PERMANENT FILE FOR COPIES OF THE ARTICLES FROM THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD. THE KONKINS WERE A RUSSIAN-SPEAKING FAMILY FROM THE TOWN OF SHOULDICE, ALBERTA, NEAR CALGARY. THEY AND MANY OTHER RUSSIAN FAMILIES COMPOSED THAT TOWN'S DOUKHOBOR COLONY. IN 2016, COLLECTIONS TECHNICIAN KEVIN MACLEAN CONDUCTED FROM A TWO-PART INTERVIEW WITH KONKIN'S DAUGHTER, ELSIE MORRIS. A FULL HISTORY OF THE KONKIN FAMILY WAS CREATED USING THAT INTERVIEW AND CAN BE FOUND WITH THE RECORD P20160003002.

MADE LATE 1800'S BY LUCINDA SIMONS IN IOWA, DONORS GREAT GRANDMOTHER. *UPDATE* IN 2010 NICOLE HEMBROFF TALKED WITH THE DONOR, DORIS SCHEIBNER, WITH REGARD TO HER DONATIONS. SEE BELOW. THE BLANKET WAS MADE BY LUCINDA SIMONS (DONOR’S GREAT GRANDMOTHER). SCHEIBNER SAID, “SHE DID A LOT OF WEAVING FOR THE FAMILY BECAUSE I SAW ANOTHER BLANKET SHE HAD MADE IN AN AUNT’S HOUSE. SHE MUST HAVE BEEN QUITE THE WEAVER.” IT IS UNKNOWN WHETHER LUCINDA WOULD HAVE SPUN AND CARDED THE WOOL FOR THE BLANKET HERSELF. SCHEIBNER’S MOTHER, CHRISTINA, USED THE BLANKET IN SEDGEWICK, AB. IT WAS ALWAYS SITTING ON THE END OF ONE OF THE GUEST BEDS. DORIS’ MOTHER LIKELY MADE THE REPAIRS TO THE BLANKET. “SHE MENDED A LOT OF THINGS.” THE FAMILY GOT THE BLANKET BECAUSE IT WAS LEFT IN THE HOUSE WHEN RAY’S PARENTS WENT BACK TO THE STATES IN 1914. RAY WAS NOT AS PROTECTIVE OF THE BLANKET AS HE HAD BEEN IN THE CASE OF THE CHAIR. SCHEIBNER GOT THE BLANKET AND DONATED IT TO THE MUSEUM WHEN SHE CLEANED OUT HER MOTHER’S HOUSE. SHE NEVER USED IT BECAUSE SHE THOUGHT IT WAS TOO FRAGILE. SCHEIBNER DONATED THE BLANKET TO THE GALT MUSEUM BECAUSE IT WAS HAND-WOVEN AND OLD. SEE P19880059010 FOR FAMILY HISTORY.
