We have some spun flax in a glass frame. Handwritten underneath, it says:
Spun by Anna Rogers Dec 25 1859 At the age of 70 years Flax raised in 1798
On the back of the frame is a note in an envelope:
Flax raised the year that G. Grandmother (Anna Aldrich of Rhode Island) was 9 years old. She helped break it and the year she was 70 years old she spun the thread on her 70th birthday. Ma carried the wheel down stairs for her. (Written by Fannie I. Smith Ford)
