Appletree Hollow Story: "The Tea Party"
The Mother's Day weekend gave me a little bit of extra time to research more of the Appletree Secret Albums and present this information from 1818.
ABIGALE PATCH and FLORA HAMSTARK
Abigale Patch (on the right), one of Bertrum’s many sisters, is shown here with her childhood friend Flora Hamstark. This image comes as no surprise to me after finding out that Abigale became quite reknown, after she was awarded a beautiful tea set for winning the very first baby contest ever recorded. There is much more written about Abigale, that I will reveal later on, as she was involved in the underground movement in 1834.

Found these gals in,what I named, the Angel Room. They seemed to be enjoying two of my favorite paintings in the museum. These paintings are small but powerful with an added touch of whimsy.

I thought this was a fun experience at the Art Museum. I was sitting in the
next room sketching this woman who was doing sketches of the paintings. I
imagine she was a student of the nearby art college.

Oil on canvas - 6"x 8"
Art Museum Series

I often go to the Art Museum. I find it inspiring to see some of the old
masters work and of course there are also the new exhibits. I can sit and
sketch people as they ponder what is before them. This man stood for a very
long time in front of this fabulous piece...to me he almost became part of
the painting.

#3 Willard & Bert (from left to right) Willard was known to be very bashful and so loved nature that he never managed to shoot any other living creature. It was also stated that he desperately tried to start one of the first vegetarian movements but with very little success. Bert on the other hand was a very forceful young man who, by the age of 41, became a high ranking soldier in the 8th Brown Bear regiment of 1834.

#2 -Gertrude Ginney, Bertha Snell & Penelope Peck(from left to right)
There are quite a few references to these three later in the diary but I will say now that Gertrude, being very creative, managed to run a small millinery shop, where she eventually produced a line of hats for the soldiers in 1834.
Bertha, who was known for her snooty attitude, ended up running a brothel and spent 6 years in a coop. And Penelope, was one of the sisters of Maggie Peck. Other than a note about her being very shy, she had 10 children.
