Family Heirloom Weavers - Elsina Green pattern. She was born in Moore County TN in 1835 and was the oldest of 14 children. It was said that she met Federal troops at her kitchen door with an ax in one hand and a kettle of boiling water in the other. She let them know if they came in her house they were going to get the left hand, the right, or both and put a gash in the door frame to let them know she meant business. The troops left. Is it any surprise she lived to be 94 years old?
