1835. The solidly stitched center is inscribed with the names, birth, and marriage dates of her parents and the
names and birth dates of their eleven children. Susan was the ninth child and the youngest girl.
Susan included a verse and inscription honoring a sister she never knew who died at age 6 months.
Susan's family lived near the corner of Warren Street and Kearsarge Avenue in Roxbury, MA, which is now part of
Boston. Her father, Antipas of Westborough, MA, was a soap-manufacturer in Roxbury. Her Mother Elizabeth Carter
was born in Sudbury, MA.

If you are a rootin'- tootin' Newton this would be suitin', but even if you're not, it might fill a spot.
