Sewing basket with contents.
Frances Staunton estate. Frances Staunton was the daughter of Dr. Archibald G. Staunton and Dr. Rachel Hornbrook Bullard Staunton, both physicians in Denver. Archibald was born in September 1868 in West Virginia. Rachel was born in June 1879 in West Virginia as well. They married in 1898 and moved to Denver around 1903. Some of the contents in this basket, including a medical needle, likely belonged to Frances' mother or father. However, it is not known which of the family first used the basket.
