1803 in Pennsylvania, moved to Lebanon, OH in her early teens, at age 23 married Pomeroy Stoddard, and died in
1893 in Ohio. Information on the original cardboard backing and the frame indicate that she worked this magnificent
embroidery at age 14, and the progression of ownership as it descended through the Stoddard family to the present
