While doing family history research I found this picture posted. I was in shock. Jerusha Bumpus is my 4th great grandmother! She was born in 1746. The bottom of this sampler says: yrs 81 made so it would have been stitched in 1827. I do not know if the person that posted this picture actually has the sampler but if they do what a treasure!
I am sure that you have already guessed that I will be attempting to graph a pattern for this historical in the near future- yes I surely will!!
