The portraits depict William Hall’s daughter Mary Ann Hall Lewis (1811–1852) and her husband Richard Lewis (1804–c. 1889). Little is known of Mary Ann Hall Lewis despite her birth and death years, and the place of her burial in the Hackettstown, New Jersey Union Cemetery. Interestingly, her stone is in the Rawlings’ family plot, that of her mother, Mary Ann Rawlings Hall.
