Loara Standish was the daughter of Pilgrim Miles Standish.
A sampler stitched by her is housed at the Pilgrim Hall Museum. Part of the sampler reads:
Loara Standish is my name Lord guide my heart that I may do thy will Also fill my hands with such convenient skill As may conduce to virtue void of shame and I will give the glory to thy name.
The sampler was stitched on 50 count linen- I can't imagine doing this!
