This almost 200 year old needlework sampler is a lovely keepsake with known pedigree but in need of finding clues of decendants from HER till now. A project I will someday tackle. Magry (Margaret) Harry was born in 1819 in Sennen, Cornwall, England. In 1847 she married William Rowe. Her son, William Rowe, was born about 1858. Margy died in 1876 in the same town as her birth. That is all I have and where I will need to start my search. The religious phrase is unusual. The angels are winged and are my favorate part of the piece. The floral pattern on the border is very nice. Enjoy looking at this piece of wonder. It makes you daydream.
