Lois Mason Buckminster
Roxbury, Cheshire, NH c. 1829
A three-sided meandering flowering vine border and a sawtooth border frames a classic sampler with alphabets,
numerals, and a flowering bush at the bottom. It is inscribed: Lois M. Buckminster ---- A. (She probably started
to write the word "Age" but ran out of room).
Lois (1819-1871) was the third oldest child born to Peter Davis Buckminster (1787-1863) and Abigail White (1790-1875).
Peter was a farmer and married Abigail in 1815.
Lois married Asa O. Colby who was a joiner and they moved to Holyoke, MA and had one child, Abba Colby b. 1847.
Silk on linen; 19" x 18 ¼" framed.
