Lydia Sill aka Jerushia Grimm

Design - "Lydia Sill"
Designer - Bent Creek
Fabric - 36 count Flax Edinborough linen
Floss - DMC - 1 strand over two threads
Started - 22 July 2010
Completed - 23 July 2010

I decided that "Lydia Sill - 1903 - Indian Territory" would personalize really nicely.  I decided to make a few changes and use the sampler to commemorate my Great-Greatgrandmother, Jerushia Grimm Greenwell.  When she was six years old, she came with her parents and siblings to the Oregon Territory. Family legend has it that she walked from Iowa to Oregon.  They settled in Damascus in Clackamas County.  She married Benjamin Franklin Greenwell, and had twelve children - ten who survived to adulthood.

The Saturday Farmers' Market was bustling yesterday!  Lots of food, flowers, and entertainment too.
