Behind the Sampler
Intrigued by a sampler wrought by her great-great-great-grandmother in 1808, Barbara Copeland Birkhimer set out to learn more about the life her ancestor led, and what inspired the then nine-year-old to create such a beautiful piece of needlework.
This book brings life to Sally Tolman Dickerman, her family, and her friends and gives us a glimpse of family life in early nineteenth century Stoughton, Massachusetts. Included are ancestry and pedigree charts, and multiple family photos. Beautifully written, this book is sure to please.
