EUNICE MORTON’S SAMPLER AGED 11
1794
Eunice Morton might have been born in 1783 in Gorham County, Maine.  She might have died in 1863 in Somerset County, Maine.  Around 1810 she might have married Jesse Harding in Maine.  This is all that I know.  There were other women by that name in New England in 1794, but not all of them were 11 years old in 1794. Her sampler has an irregular-sized border surrounding alphabetic and numeric rows.  She used cross, petit point, and herringbone stitches.  The sampler is in very good condition and has been mounted and framed to high standards.
