Elie Vallette and Family, Maryland, 1774

Hello, Vallettes. I thought this might interest you. I ran into an ad in the Maryland Gazette, October 20, 1774 issue. Ad dated September 13, 1774.

Mr. Elie Vallette. Pay me for painting your family picture. Chrles Peale.

Some of you may descend from this Vallette family, whom the famous Charles Wilson Peale painted. Apparently he had a hard time getting paid for his work.

You can get to the ad at Or, enter Maryland Gazette in your search engine, select Maryland State Archives Documents for the Classroom, scroll down to MSA SC 2221-21-12 Oct. 20 1774, and the ad is at the top of page 3. Better yet, you already know about the painting and where it is!

Have fun! Nancy Williams, Maryland
