Portrait of Sarah Smith Logan Clarke, ca. 1805-10, Easton, Maryland
The Program of the 2013 Philadelphia Antique Show on p. 76 pictures in an advertisement an excellent portrait of Sarah Smith Logan Clarke, of Easton, Maryland, painted about 1805-10 by James Peale in Philadelphia. She is a beautiful young lady in this portrait.
Further, at the date of my writing this message, the portrait also appears on the advertiser, Schwarz Gallery's, website online at:
where this further information is given about Mrs. Clarke: "[Sarah Smith Logan] lived in Easton, Maryland,near Chestertown.... She was the daughter of Samuel Logan, a prosperousmerchant who donated land upon which the Talbot County Library was erected. Sarah Logan married William Bennett Clarke, a prominent local lawyer and merchant."
However, this portrait may be taken offline soon. In the event it is taken offline, I have scanned it from the Philadelphia Antique Show program & will be happy to send a copy freely by email to Logan or Clarke family researchers. Someone in the families ought to have it, which is why I’m keeping a copy of it and posting about it. It is too good to be missed by the Logan or Clarke families. It would be a very great shame and injustice were it to be missed by their descendants.

Please email me directly rather than respond to me on this site as I may not see that response.
If it were a portrait of a 19th century Pease gentlelady in my family line, I’d certainly hope someone would do the same for me. Call it a simple, but appropriate, genealogy good deed.
