The first personification of the USA was Brother Jonathan. Uncle Sam only came about during the War of 1812, while Brother Jonathan was around during the American Revolution. There is a female national personification of the US, with that being Columbia (I guess that's why Americans often misspell Colombia the country as Columbia). I don't know too much about Canada, but apparently Canada has several national personifications. There's Johnny Canuck, who was later recreated as a WWII comic book hero, Mother Canada, and Le Vieux de '37 (French Canada).

Actually, the earliest, earliest, *earliest* representation of the USA was the Indian Princess. Evidently, this was stemmed from the days of the "four representatives" of the continents Europe, Africa, Asia and America (where both North and South were treated as one). The Americas were represented by the Indian Queen. http://clements.umich.edu/exhibits/online/american-encounters/american-encounters-women.php Somehow the Indian Queen led to the Indian Princess representing Colonial America. Evidently, she was the daughter of Britannia (England), and there are some pre-war cartoons showing her telling her mother off. Then after the war there was a cartoon showing mother and daughter reconciling.
