Eliza was my great-great-grandmother. It is dated 1830. There are the usual alphabet letters, and numbers. The last full line reads Eliza Ainger, Westport, NY, Age 13 and the final line is only the year,...1830.
The blue lettering was inserted on the photo by me. Eliza was mother to Mary, who was mother to Sylvester, who was mother to Margaret who was mother to me! Can you picture a little girl struggling by kerosene lamp-light over a needle, colored threads and cloth?
