Title

Clothing of Sarah Mullin Waldron

Description

Farmington resident Sarah Mullin Waldron born, 1853 died, 1932. She was the second wife of Augustus Scott Waldron and the mother of Jeremy Richard Waldron Sr., a well-known lawyer, judge, and NH state attorney general. There are actually four pieces of clothing: a long, fancy skirt with lacy overlay, a matching jacket, a blouse and a short velvet cloak.

From Nancy Walker the great grandaughter of Sarah Mullin Waldron: " The jacket has a label with the words "Phillippe Le Bel, Dressmaker, High St., Somersworth, NH". The blouse and cloak don't have labels. My mother told me Sarah made many of her own clothes and apparently was quite good at it. "
