Stephen & Carol Huber: 17th - 19th Century Needlework

Waymouth, MA needlework sampler by Priscilla  Rogers from Huber

Priscilla Rogers
Family Record Sampler
Waymouth, Norfork, MA dated 1824

Priscilla Rogers was born 10 May, 1809 and at age 15 she worked this sampler honoring her very large family consisting of her parents and their twelve children. At age 20 she married Daniel Loud Jr. and they had eight children. Her husband, Daniel, died when she was 43 leaving her with 7 children between the ages of 5 to 22. She and the children soon after moved in with her oldest daughter Rosanna who had married a Mr. Whitcomb. She apparently lived with her daughter's family untill her death at age 76 in 1885. She lived her entire life in Weymouth, Massachusetts.

The poem has a few missing letters.

Like dew-drops, exhaled as they glisten;
Like perfume, which dies soon as shed;
Like melody, hushed while we listen,
Is memory's dream of the dead. - Bernard Barton (1784-1849)

Barton was known as the "Quaker poet". He was educated at a Quaker school in Ipswich, England.

The recent deaths of her Grandmother and older brother are memorialized on the monuments at the bottom.

Silk on linen; 18 ¼" x 19 ¼" framed.
