The marriage of Ann Forham * she was an English Quakeress, of Philadelphia * and James McGinness took place around about 1786, and she died October 12, 1821 aged 58 years and 4 months.
I found this article about Ann : A specimen of her needle work is still in existence. It consists of a fow mottoes or verses worked on perforated card board with colored yarn, with her name, `Ann Fordham,` and the date `1775,` attached. It was executed eleven years before her marriage, and desconded to her eldest daughter, Margaret McGinnis Swisher, and is now in the hands of her granddaughter, Mrs. Rebecca Groff, of Colerain. And although over 116 years old, it is still in a good state of preservation, and hangs upon the wall in its antiquated frame as a precions heirloom. Another souvenir, also of rare value, is now in the possession of the author, her grandson. It is a lady`s pocketbook for needles, thimbles and cuttings. The outer covering is of worsted stuff, with an embroidered flap, and it contains three compartments or pockets, which are lined with brown silk taken from her wedding dress.

Note: Take in to fact that this article was wrote over 112 years ago and it was 116 years old when he wrote it so it would be well over 200 years old today if still exsisted.
