The lady who gave it to me thought it might be from Waterford, Maine. The sampler says Betsy Bryant age 16 years 1811. I was able to do a little research, Betsey Bryant was born 1795 in Waterford, Maine and lived to be 96 years old! I cannot wait to see what else I can find out fellow stitcher woman. When I get home after the holidays, I plan on taking it in to a framers to see about its condition and preservation.
