Help Re-Unite an Heirloom with the Family of Nellie DUNCAN

Liz Brown, a Global Gazette reader, is on a mission for her father and the family of Nellie DUNCAN. Liz writes:
    "My father has a sampler which he'd like to reunite with the family of the little girl who created it, Nellie DUNCAN, who was 10 years old when she made the sampler in 1881.

    Dad acquired it from his aunt by marriage, Sandra Oliver ROBERTSON, who came from Galt in Waterloo County, Ontario, Canada. Sandra Oliver ROBERTSON died in the early 1950s in Brantford, Ontario, Canada.

    Dad believes that the OLIVER and DUNCAN families were connected.
If any of this sounds familiar to you, whether you have the answer or just a clue, contact Liz Brown at to help solve the mystery and reunite an heirloom with the family of Nellie Duncan
