Elizabeth Sisson samplers (General)

Thank you again.

I think you are absolutely right that baptism records could be written wrongly. I think though that a family that could afford and encourage embroidery that involves the alphabet and extracts from hymns would be a literate and well-off family, and so would correct their records if spelled wrongly.

I wonder if the samplers could have been a gift to one of my maternal ancestors? I know some of them worked as servants, but it would seem quite an odd gift.

Thanks again.
