This sampler was made in the 1890s from horse hair. The sampler was made by Sarah Parsons who was the granddaughter of Charles Parsons, whose first generation build the main roads. A sampler is a piece of fabric that was used for school work at home or at school. It is used for practicing your name, numbers, and A B C’s. Over time letters have faded so it’s very hard to read. Sarah Parson was fourteen when she made the sampler. The most accurate value of a antique sampler is around 40,000 dollars.
