Ellender....



My 4 great grandmother is Ellender Choate Sitz...She was 8 years old in 1809....She was Native American....Very little is known about her unfortunately, but I won't give up searching....I stitched this SIMPLE sampler in her honor....

Love this, too, Jen! What a wonderful tribute to your 5-great- grandmother....
My great-grandmother was also a Native American. We have no info on her at all, except that my mom can remember her long braided hair! A family member is trying to get more info.... Good luck in your search!!
