Owner / Donor Story:

This sampler was passed to me by my Aunt Margaret. Sarah was born in Harbour Breton, NL, in 1843 to Eleanor Tibbo and Benjamin Chapman. She moved to Fortune in her early 30’s and married a widower, William Pitman Lake. Their daughter, Eleanor, married Felix Tibbo and they had four children, and lived in Grand Bank. Sarah’s daughter, Eleanor did a sampler that was mainly copied from this one.
