Description:

While this genealogy sampler is in poor and faded condition we wanted to show the diversity of family record samplers. It is quite difficult to read because of the tone-on-tone stitching. Elizabeth has included alphabets along the top, genealogy in the center and verse on the bottom half with a house in the corner.

Size (W x H): 18 x 17 1/4 inches

Stitches: Cross, symrna, four-sided, cross-over-one, eyelet, herringbone

Media: Silk on linen

Genealogy:

Interestingly, our genealogical research comes up with some slightly different information. Joseph Hart Bellamy was born January 1789 in Litchfield County, Connecticut, the son of Silence Leavitt. He died 1 November 1848, also in Litchfield. Joseph married Sarah Griswold Hillhouse, from New Haven, on 4 November 1813. Records confirm Elizabeth Mason Bellamy's birth on 5 September 1822. She was married on 15 June 1858 to Aretas Goodman Loomis of Huttonville, West Virginia, at the age of 36. Elizabeth's death is recorded on 8 April 1908, no location specified.

How swift the wheels of time roll on
Sweet days of youth how soon they're gone
How transient is their stay
Thus giddy youth must yield to age
And act upon life's busy stage
Till death calls them away

Made by Elizabeth M. Bellamy 1831 in the 9th year of her age
