A Union Fife and Drum Finish

This was a stitch that combined my two passions - Genealogy and Cross-stitching. I have been documenting my family tree at my other blog, Digging Down East, for four years now, and this summer I found the grave of my 3rd great grandfather, Howard Winslow Brackley, in a tucked-away cemetery in Freeman, Maine. He served with Company D of the 28th Maine Infantry.


  1. Oh, a great finish. And so interesting to learn about your 3rd great-grandfather. So exciting to find his grave.

  2. The stitching is awesome! I can imagine how great it can be finding all your ancestors. :D

  3. Very exciting. I'm the stitcher and my DH does the genealogy.

  4. Fascinating! Your finish is great-and appropriate!
