Here is a NJ Quaker sampler made by Hannah Roger and dated 1811. The sampler has Quaker motifs including 8 pointed star, love birds and natural flower vines. The sampler has good color and is intact with no holes. It was conserved on linen backing. acid free back with UV blocking glass. A photographic record of conservation comes with the sampler is 16" across and 17" high framed. Sight size is 13" across by 13.75" high. Frame is not original but an appropriate replacement.The sampler has characteristics of other samplers in the Burlington/Camden Gloucester County areas of NJ. There are several Hannah Rogers born in 1800/1801 in this area. The Rogers family is difficult to research and I have found the same individuals with different middle initial, month of birth and marriage dates on different records. The most likely maker is Hannah Rogers daughter of Joseph Powell Rogers and Sarah Rogers who was born in 1801 . Her birth place has been listed on various documents as Camden NJ and Woodbury NJ. She shows up on Quaker documents as residing in Camden NJ 1801, in Woodbury in 1804, Camden 1805, New Castle Delaware in 1807, 1826 Burlington NJ. In 1826 she married Quaker Joshua Thorn . Hannah has been referred to as Hannah, Hannah T., Hannah I,, Hannah P. and Hannah J. The variations were listed with her father Joseph Powell Rogers or her spouse Joshua Thorn. The 1860 Federal Census shows Hannah I. Thorne widow living in Philadelphia with off spring Rebecca age 25, Elizabeth 22, Esther R.20, Joshua 17, and Powell R.16. An in-law Lydia B. Thorne age 30 was part of the house hold. Philadelphia death records record her death as march 24 1882 in Woodbury NJ. Her birth place was listed as Woodbury. One can only wonder about the many residences of Joseph Powell Rogers and his family. Perhaps he worked as a potter or glass blower and worked at potteries or glass houses in Camden, Burlington, Gloucester and Delaware. The Thorn family is associated with potteries in Burlington County. This sampler was purchased at an estate sale of a Gloucester County antique collector. So many questions! This would be an interesting research project. Or just enjoy as a nice example of School Girl Needle work.
