Family Register Sampler
Rhode Island after 1838
The Budlong family register information is contained within elaborately stitched arched columns wrapped with
garlands of floral vines. Extensive research indicates that the family represented on this sampler lived in Warwick,
Benjamin Budlong (1759-1824) was the father of Samuel Budlong (1786-1864) who's family is the subject of this
family record. Samuel was married first to Lydia Atwood who died at age 20 a week after having a son who died
at age 8. Samuel married second to Sarah Ann Whitman, and they had nine more children.
The sampler is in excellent condition, without any thread loss and one tiny hole to the ground. There's an overall
darkening to the linen ground consistent with age. It is conservation mounted in an antique style frame.
