Antique Needlework Sampler
Miss Cornwall's School
Glastonbury, CT dated 1830
Laura Mitchel, at age 13, in 1830, worked this striking Family Register needlework sampler at Miss Cornwall's
school in Glastonbury, Connecticut. She recorded the births and marriage of her parents and the births & deaths
of her siblings.
Laura at age 13 was no doubt boarding in Glastonbury, CT while attending school because her family lived 50 miles
away in South Britain, CT.
Attached to the back is a page from the New Haven City Gazette dated April 22, 1830
Silk on linen; 20 ¾" x 26" framed.
