This rather plain sampler by a seven-year-old is nonetheless a recognizable example from Mary Balch's school. Catherine (Caty)Field (c. 1782 - 1875) was the daughter of Lemuel Field (1750- 1836)and Rachel Downing (d. 1814) of Providence. She married merchant and paper hanger William James (c. 1778-1824) on November 19, 1810.
Catherine was one of six children. Her father Lemuel owned real estate in Providence. (Additional information provided by Carol and Stephen Huber).
