The basket of fruit relates this sampler to both samplers and silk embroideries from Mary Balch's School, but no other Providence samplers with the same strawberry border have been found. Hannah Carlile (1783-1805) was born in Pawtucket, the daughter of Captain Thomas Carlile (c. 1755-1785) and Phebe Aborn (1761-1788). She was married in Providence to Dr. John Mathewson Eddy (1780-1817) on October 7, 1804.
Hannah's father married a second time to Mary Ann Dexter in 1814, he died in Cuba in 1817. (Additional information provided by Carol and Stephen Huber).
