Sister Margaret Egleston (1843-1925, Mount Lebanon, NY). On December 28, 1923, a fire broke out in the Second Family that threatened not only the chair factory, but half a dozen Shaker workshops and buildings. Seventy-five year old Eldress Margaret jumped to action organizing the Shaker sisters in a bucket-brigade hauling buckets of water up to the roofs of the burning buildings.
