Painter Cemetery: 38°47'49.79" N 78°37'53.85" W Edinburg, Shenandoah Co, VA Contributed by Foxie Hagerty
THE PAINTER CEMETERY is located in the general vicinity of Edinburg, Shenandoah County, Virginia. It is more specifically located on Road No 614, .2 mile southwest of Road No 707, which in between Mt. Jackson, Virginia, and Edinburg, Virginia. This cemetery is on a hillside approximately 100 years northwest of the residence of Herbert Painter and his wife Mildred Leigh Painter, Bo 89, Route 2 Edinburg, Shenandoah Co, Virginal. Their farm is known as the "Indian Fort Stock Farm." and in much earlier days a very tall chimney made of stone, and all that remains of the very early home of George Painter, who along with other settlers were killed by Indians in 1758 62 and 68, A History of Shenandoah Co., Virginia, by John K. Wayland, 1927. Samuel Kerceval, early Shenandoah Valley historian also has written about this early Shenandoah Co., Virginia plantation. A very strong spring gushes from a small hillside between the Painter home and the cemetery. The tombstone inscriptions were transcribed on Jan 14, 1983 by Mrs. Jeanette C. Ritenour, Fort Valley Route Box 81 Seven Fountains, Shenandoah County, Virginia.
This private plantation burial ground is pretty large, and is enclosed by a stone masonry wall. There are many sunken grave sites that are unmarked, and also at least five fieldstone marked graves which are not inscribed. Many of the existing tombstones are broken off of their bases and are lying on the ground.

The following is taken from "The Gann and Painter Ancestors of Paul Thurman Butler" , 1984.
The Painter (German name Bender) families came to America from the Palatine (southwestern Germany) near Mannheim on the Rhine River. William Penn encouraged German and Swiss families to come to Pennsylvania and offered many inducements to them. Penn considered these people of excellent stock and the type of hardy individuals that were needed to develop Pennsylvania. Approximately 30,000 German and Swiss families commenced arriving in Philadelphia about 1720 and continued to arrive for the next thirty or so years. Most of these immigrants floated north down the Rhine River in Germany. They then sailed from Rotterdam, Holland, usually stopping in England to resupply the ships, for Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, which was then the largest port on the eastern seaboard. New York had not as yet become a great port.
Cowes, England (on the Isle of Wight) thence to Philadelphia.

This is Ezekiel PAINTER's ancestry:
Johann Matthaus BENDER; b.1677, Mannheim, Baden-Württemberg, GER; d.1744, PA; m.Anna Katharina VOLTZ
Johann Jorg BENDER; b.31Mar1707, Mannheim, Baden-Württemberg, GER; d.1758, Indian Fort Stock Farm, Paintersville, Shenandoah, VA (Killed in the 'famous' Indian Fort Stock Farm Massacre during the French and Indian Wars); m.Eve ?
Johann Adam "Old Adam/Big Adam" BENDER; b.1736, Shenandoah, VA; d.23 Jan 1833, Horse Creek Community, Greene, TN; m.Elizabeth BOWMAN (Mary has wife as Demilla. Don't know which of us is correct. Anyone else know?)
Ezekiel (Hezekiel) PAINTER
Ezekiel/Hezekiel is definitely one of our Germanna BENDER/PAINTER descendants and not one of the "other" "English" PAINTER's.

Yes that Adam BENDER is the father of our Ezekiel/Hezekiel. And the wife is Demilia "Milla or Milley" BROYLES, daughter of Adam BROYLES and Mary WILHOIT.
I just went back through my databases and took a closer look at what I had on this family. I had Ezekiel as the son of Johann Adam "Old Adam/Big Adam" and had always worried over that, since the dates just didn't fit. Old Adam's son, Johann Adam, Jr., DID marry Demilia BROYLES! They are the parents of Ezekiel/Hezekiel. (Added TM: It was Old adam who married Demilia - not J. Adam Jr.
Here are the connections between the parents and sponsors:
1) Moses BROYLES, was the brother of Demilia BROYLES. (He was married to Barbara CARPENTER.)
2) Barbara CARPENTER's parents were Andrew CARPENTER and Barbara WEAVER.
3) Elizabeth BREIL was Elizabeth BROYLES, sister to Demilia and to Moses.
So, the sponsors for the Baptism of Ezekiel/Hezekiel were the mother's brother, Moses; Moses' wife's parents, Andrew CARPENTER and Barbara WEAVER; and the mother's sister, Elizabeth.
