| In August
of this year (2018), Ron and Dorothy Easterday and Ron's sister
Karen Parsons, after considerable email correspondence concerning
their Easterday and associated families that once lived in our
local area, arrived on a visit from their home in Washington
State. They were looking at our coverlet collection for possible
clues re. the weaver of their Catherine Myers Garnhart coverlet.
(More about that coverlet later.) They enjoyed our museum and
especially took note of our Magic Lantern. Imagine our surprise
when they later presented us with 10 lantern slides! In this
article we'll describe those slides as well as our Magic Lantern.
