Family record samplers with apple tree motifs were popular and graphic depictions of family units. This lavish
example stitched by Mary at age 11, is embellished with an arched flowering vine border, and the very unusual overall
stitched background. It is inscribed: Family Record Wrought by Mary W. Bellows aet. 11 1821.
