Wordless Wednesday ~ Susan Arville Chapin Adsit

Susan Arville Chapin Adsit  (June 9, 1820 - May 6, 1906)

The handwritten "Grandma Adsit" was written by Elizabeth Adsit, my grandmother. This is her grandmother, Susan Arville Chapin. She married James Monroe Adsit and her son (my great grandfather) is Charles Chapin Adsit.

When she was twelve, she embroidered the Family Register sampler that I wrote about on Monday. 

Wordless Wednesday is a daily blogging prompt from GeneaBloggers, the genealogy community’s resource for blogging. It is used by many genealogy bloggers to help them tell stories of their ancestors.


  1. Elizabeth:

    What a great photo!

    Thanks for sharing,

  2. Lovely photo, Elizabeth, and how lucky you are to have it; I don't have many old ancestor photos-- they ended up with my sister, and getting them from her, even just to copy them, is proving to be difficult.

  3. Lisa and Karen,
    Thank you for reading and commenting. I'm very lucky that my paternal grandmother saved a lot of wonderful family pictures.
