153 year old Cross-Stitch Sampler made by my gg grandmother
Dear FamilyTreeCircle Members, Hi there.
Due to the wonders of modern technology today, I was sent an email of a mobile phone photograph, taken in Cornwall, of a cross-stitch sampler made by my grandfather's grandmother. Her name was Isabella Milne BUCHAN and when she was 15 years old in 1853, she created this sampler. Sampler depicted animals at The Great Exhibition at the Crystal Palace in 1851.
As I live in Australia, this is most remarkable that a descendant could have a family treasure like this and eventually get to share it with me in the year 2006. I feel so lucky today. Just thought I'd share it with you.
I also wonder if anyone else has similar samplers in their family trees?
