Holt, Ida Belle (b. 9 JAN 1886, d. 1 JAN 1956)
Note: Ida and her husband Isaac were laid to rest at the Little Flock Cemetery, Shelburn, Sullivan County, IN

The following is an article written by Ida. It is unknown the purpose of the article.
WEAVING--MY PROFITABLE HOBBY
I have always been interested in doing handcraft work. Have done bead work, fancy pillow cases and all kinds of embroidery and crocheting. I like to work with colors, so I have painted many pictures and designs on glass. Mat weaving on hand looms has been another interesting hobby of mine.
My husband and I had a large family consisting of five boys and three girls. Opportunity for carrying on my hobbies was rather limited until my family was grown. After the death of my husband, I found it necessary to try to commercialize on my handwork. While making the mats, I had the urge to try a loom. I felt that I could make more profit with a loom.
First I studied ways and means to purchase a loom and where I might be able
to secure materials. For I didn't want to use all old clothing and discards for rugs. I located a local dealer who sold strips of materials, blanket material and cotton mixtures by the pound. I saw an advertisement of warp in a magazine. I mailed a card and they sent samples and price lists. On March 9, 1942, I sent to Boonville, N. Y. for a Union Special Loom. It came threaded up with enough warp to make 12 yards of carpet. A book of instructions came with it with illustrations of how to thread it up. The loom, freight included, cost me $36.89. So began my first weaving experience. It was nothing to weave, as I had years ago watched a weaver as she made rugs for me on an old fashion kind of loom.
As I used up the warp, I became rather anxious as to how I was going to get the loom threaded up again. I had purchased additional warp so with the aid of the book of instructions I proceeded to warp up the loom. When I had it all threaded up, something was wrong, it just would not weave. There seemed to be no tension whatever. I studied the instructions sheets again and again. I tried to contact two or three whom I had been told had formerly owned looms. Finally in a distant town, I located a man whose mother had woven rugs. he came and together we studied the instruction book and the loom. I discovered that I had not brought the warp up over the back bar. Since then I have learned lots of tricks in threading up the loom. I have taught several to thread and weave.
When World War 2 came and warp was a scarce item, I tried out the seersucker weave. It takes less warp and makes a beautiful rug. This weave used four threads then skips four threads. The finished product has a weave that looks very much like seersucker.
I have used all kinds of materials. Silk hose, feed sacks, used clothing and upholstering materials. I do quite a bit of work for an upholsterer here. This material is cut about 1 inch wide and I double it as I weave it. It takes longer this way, but then the rugs are alike on each side and are very pretty.
During the War when materials became so scarce, a lady brought me some material to weave her some rugs. Upon inquiry, I found that the material was strips which came from a tire shop that did recapping. These strips lined the boxes the rubber came in and had been burnt until her husband brought some home to her and she had boiled the material in lye water removing the chemical, the result being yards and yards of cream colored cloth that looked like handkerchief linen. These strips then were dyed different colors and made up into very beautiful rugs.
Silk hose cut length-wise in about 3 strips, not cutting all the way through at the ends in order that the hose will remain in one piece, make very pretty rugs.
I am partially crippled, but I try to keep up my 9 room house, tend a flower garden, can fruits and vegetables, cook for one son and have a lot of callers in the run of a day. Yet I always find time to do some weaving every day.
The warp which I use costs me .66 and .69 per lb. 8 lbs will warp up 150 turns on the loom. This will weave around 52 rugs of 4 feet each. For rugs woven for any merchant, I receive $1.25 per rug when sold in dozen lots, otherwise I charge $2.00 per cotton rug. If I have the materials cut and tacked, I can weave 6 4-foot rugs per day.
I like to buy rug materials in strips. From these I make panel rugs which will weave about 6 to 8 rows across. Since I do not cut the strips all the way through at the ends, I do not have so much tacking to do. The cost of warp for each rug averages about 12 cents. 15 to 25 cents worth of materials. If a rug is made from feed sacks, four sacks will be required to make a 4 foot rug. Strips of about 1 inch wide.
I cut and tack materials of an evening and listen in on my favorite radio programs.
I have enjoyed the many friends made through weaving. I have a friend who supplies the materials, prepares it for weaving and then sells the finished rug.
I charge 25 cents per foot for weaving when the material has already been prepared for 30 cents per foot if I cut and tack the materials furnished by my clients.
I do not believe that there is any other work that I could personally do that would give me time for work in my flowers and garden, visit with my friends, do my own housework and be my own boss and yet be as profitable to me as "My Profitable Hobby Weaving".


From "The History of Sullivan County (Indiana)" 1909 and 1976

"Isaac A. Bryan, one of the younger farmers of Sullivan County, whose pleasant farm home is situated on the rural mail route running out from New Lebanon, is a native of Fayette county Ohio, born January 26, 1876, a son of Josiah and Mary (Wilson) Bryan, both born in Ross county, Ohio, the father (Josiah) September 4, 1842, and the mother (Mary) March 2, 1846. The father (Josiah), who followed farming for a livelihood, came to Indiana in 1901, having the year before purchased one hundred and ninety-eight acres of land in Gill township. Here he conducted a successful farming business until his death in November of the same year in which he came to this place to reside. After his death the widow resided on the same farm until 1906, when she purchased a home on North Main street in Sullivan, where she expects to spend the remainder of her days. Josiah Bryan enlisted in 1862, at Chillicothe, Ohio, in Company I, Seventy-third Ohio Regiment, and served three years and nine months. He was slightly wounded in the ankle, and at another time in the stomach. The children of Josiah and Mary (Wilson) Bryan were: Flora, deceased; Louie, deceased; Edward, residing in Colorado; Isaac A., of this notice; and Eva, deceased.
Isaac A. Bryan received his education at the village schools of Stanton, Fayette county, Ohio. He remained with his father until the latter's death and with his mother until his marriage, and the estate was then divided between the mother, his brother and himself, Isaac A. remaining on the old homestead place. It contains sixty-four and a fraction acres, upon which he carried on a general farming and stock business. He made great changes and excellent improvements after taking the farm, including the clearing of some of the land, fencing and other conveniences needed about a first-class place, making it one of the best equipped places in his township. He sold his estate in Gill township and purchased ninety-three acres in Hamilton township. This place is known as "The Marlow" farm and is located about four miles northeast of Sullivan.
In his church faith, Mr. Bryan is identified with the Methodist Episcopal denomination, and has been president of the board of stewards in this church. Politically he is a firm supporter of the Republican party. On January 7, 1903, he was married to Miss Belle Holt, who was born in Pickaway county, Ohio, January 9, 1886, a daughter of Thomas and Mary E. (Prose) Holt, who came to Indiana in September, 1898, locating in Gill township on a farm, and he also operated a threshing machine. The father (Thomas Holt) died February 7, 1908. The mother (Mary E. Holt) still resides in the township. The date of the father's birth was August, 1866, and the mother's the same year. Mr. and Mrs. Bryan are the parents of three children; Mary Louise, born January 10, 1904; Doris Waneta, born December 28, 1906; and Floyd Theodore, born June 2, 1908. Mr. Bryan is a member of the New Lebanon Modern Woodmen of America Camp No. 5488, and carries for the protection of his family a thousand dollar policy."

And the night shall be filled with music,
and the cares, that infest the day,
shall fold their tents, like the Arabs,
and as silently steal away."

YOUNG WOMAN DIES AFTER SHORT ILLNESS
Mrs. Doris Bryan Clark Died Saturday Afternoon at Home of Her Parents
Mrs. Doris Bryan Clark, the wife of Paul Clark, died Saturday afternoon at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Isaac "Brown" (sic), north of the city, after a short illness.

Mrs. Clark was a graduate of the Sullivan High School, and for some time was an assistant in the office of Charles Coffman, county treasurer. A few months ago her marriage to Mr. Clark occurred.
She underwent an operation at the Sherman hospital a few weeks ago for appendicitis. She apparently recovered from the operation and was taken to the home of her parents. However, complications developed a few days ago that resulted in her death.
