JUDITH JANE HYNES, Deerfield, Rockingham, NH, 1832
Judith Jane Haynes' worked this charming sampler in 1832 at the age of 14. Silk on linen, it is worked in 5 thread colors of cross and eyelet stitches. 4 full alphabets: 3 uppercase and one lowercase.
"Judith Jane Haynes stitched her marking sampler in Deerfield, New Hampshire. Judith included the letter “J” on her sampler, although not in every alphabet, and once she stitched it backward. The letter J often does not appear on 18th century samplers so perhaps that is a clue that Judith did her work in the 19th century. Another hint is that Judith included her middle name. Middle names were less common in the 18th century but became very popular in the early 19th century. Her final clue is that she spelled her last name with a “Y”. The Haines surname, spelled in a variety of ways, was common in Deerfield in the early 19th century. The Haines were early settlers of the region.
On February 21, 1848, Judith married Samuel G. Haines, who was the son of Samuel Haines, The couple remained in Deerfield, where Samuel was a farmer. By 1870, they seemed to have suffered a severe financial loss, no longer owning a home, and with their personal property seriously diminished in value. They were parents to a son and a daughter. Judith died in Deerfield in June of 1888." ~ Leslie Rounds, Saco Museum
