West Virginia-rare Hampshire County Wv 1836 Sampler W/undiscovered Instructress For Sale

West Virginia-rare Hampshire County Wv 1836 Sampler W/undiscovered Instructress

BETTER COLOR IN PERSON THAN PHOTOS....PIC 2 IS THE MOST ACCURATE-COLOR HIGHLIGHTS INCLUDE TEAL,PEACOCK BLUE,YELLOW .......... THIS VERY RARE HAMPSHIRE COUNTY WEST VIRGINIA SAMPLER (18x14) descended in the ABRAHAM SECREST/SECRIST FAMILY and features the rare distinction of naming an heretofore undiscovered Southern instructress, "MISS MARY J. HAMILTON"; the teacher who was surely responsible for the fanciful,oversized folk art bee next to her name, symbolizing the virtue of industry to our samplermaker. The vibrant 1836 Virginia sampler was worked by Christiana Secrest (also in records as Christina Secrist/Secriste), one of 8 children born around 1823 to Abraham Secrest/Secrist (b.1789) and his wife Catharine Rudolph..... the samplermaker was the namesake of her maternal grandmother Christiana Hotsinpiller Rudolph. Hampshire County West Virginia was part of Virginia until 1863 when it was split off and became a state....so the sampler was actually done when Hampshire County was Virginia. In 1860 the samplermaker was still living in Hampshire County,Virginia in the rural town of Hooks Mills, east of Winchester.....her family also resided in Capon Springs. The sampler is in extremely fine condition and conserved on acid free board....(comes with some family info) ..............in checking the photos they came out with an orange tint;in person the linen is actually a light wheat color and the contrast is better than the photos
