Mary Lewis, Chester Co, PA,1824 - Mary, background untraced, worked this elaborate sampler in 1824, near Williston or Marple in Chester Co., PA, where the majority of these later, non-traditional Quaker embroideries are believed to have originated. The result of a particular schoolteacher's taste, this recognizable design allows  us to attribute at least 4 samplers to her: Ann H. Vodges  1823; Alice Maris (c. 1824); Hannah W. Haws (c. 1824); and a U/I daughter of Josiah and Mary Fawkes.
