Not sure if ya'll are interested in this but I found it on ebay... If you know a dec. please pass it along to them :)
This is the note I got from the seller after I contacted her to see if she knew any family background on it (I thought perhaps it was the
Lucy Biglow that was to be married to Brigham Young....but after searching your site - nice job Rod and all - I found it to be the Lucy
Biglow that was married to James Thompson and the daughter of Thomas and Jerusha Putnam Biglow listed on
You can contact the seller if you have questions about the piece. I hope that someone will be excited about this !!

I called the people from whom I purchased the sampler, him and his wife are actually friends of mine. It was her mother's estate they were selling. Apparently this sampler came from her Dad's side of the family and they know very little about them. I purchased this in a town called Medford MN. Its about 6 miles north of where I live, Owatonna Mn. Its in the S.E. corner of Minnesota. I guess it is possible to be "the" Lucy Biglow, but I think it is a long shot. I really have no way of checking it out. I appreciate you taking the time to email me though. Sincerely, Sandy MacIntosh
This sampler came out of an estate. It shows its age. It measures about 10" x 12". The bottom part has moth damage. There also are some other small holes that look like moth damage. The sampler is made up of the ABC's and 1,2,3's. It was made by Lucy Biglow, age 12. If you have any questions before you bid, please email me. I will tell you as honestly as I know how about this piece. I am not an expert at these.
