OMG- What a Treasure!

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!!


  1. Beautiful piece!!!!! OMG , amazing finding.

  2. Oh goodness! How I wish you could buy it from them! Hope all is well, Deb. still love my pin keeps.

  3. Thanks Ladies! I wish I could buy it too!

  4. Oh, please check to see if you can buy it. What a wonderful treasure. Could it be one that she did? I can't imagine too many with that particular name.


  5. What an amazing find! You should ask this person if they'd be willing to sell that sampler if they indeed have it. Blessings, Shirlee

  6. Wow! I can't tell you how cool it is to see this! Jerusha Wheat Bump is an ancestor of mine as well. Thanks so much for posting!
