Abraham Staats House samplers from Huber

Staats Sisters
Margaret & Phebe
Stitched while living at the Abraham Statts House
New Jersey dated 1788 &1795

This important and charming pair of samplers were made by sisters, Phebe Staats dated 1788 (age 13) and Margaret Staats dated 1795 (age 14) while living at the Abraham Statts House in South Bound Brook, New Jersey. The Abraham Staats House is one of the finest surviving buildings from the 18th century Raritan Valley Dutch Settlement. The house has an interesting history when during the American Revolution it served as the headquarters of General von Steuben during the second Middlebrook Encampment (1779).

Abraham married Margaret DuBois in 1770 about the time he acquired the Staats’ plantation. They had one boy Isaac and five girls Margaret, Mary, Sarah, Phebe, and Jane.
