Sarah Coburn Ridgeway
Needlework Sampler
Groton, MA 1811

This colorful sampler was stitched by Sarah at age 9 in 1811. She included a verse with reference to learning and virtue.

When Sarah Coburn Ridgeway was born on June 23, 1802, in Worcester, Massachusetts, her father, James, was 23, and her mother, Faith, was 19. She married George Trowbridge Mixer on May 5, 1823, in Keene, New Hampshire. They had four children in 13 years. She died on November 19, 1871, in Butler, Ohio, at the age of 69.

Silk on linen; 15 ¾" x 14 ¾" sight.

Note: Her next younger sister Elizabeth stitched a sampler when she was nine years old in 1813. The two samplers have many similarities.
