Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been a freelance photographer for over 8 years now. In graphic design for 14. I am the family historian and researcher in my family and I would be more than happy to take photos for requests in my area. It took years to find my grandfathers family (on my dad's side). So I know what it can be like to finally find out where the branches and roots to your tree are. It helps you learn more about yourself.
The main branches in my family tree, (mom's side) are Painter, Bennett, Gibbons, Fagan. On that side is English, Irish, Welsh, German, African and Jamaican. (Gr.Grandfather during Civil War Time was a slave named Samuel. He was from Africa. - his wife was sold, name unknown. She was from Jamaica). Faiths: Quaker, Southern Baptist, Mormon, Methodist.
My father's side: Kuzia, Mazurkiewicz, Podsaid, Franc. 100 percent Polish/Hebrew. Faiths: Catholic and Jewish. Both of my dad's father's parents were NOT Catholic until after they came to the United States.

Different number of children
James Gibbons/Givens and Mary Jane Carpenter had more than the 7 children you have mentioned, if we are to believe the 1900 census for Earlington, Hopkins, KY. There, "Jane Givens, b. Mar 1840," has said she has born 13 children and that 9 were still living in 1900. The record says she was widowed.May not have been true. I'm stuck on finding her husband James Gibbons. Family thinks he may have moved to Mississippi.

John Painter - Rev War
I was searching the Painter's in Illinois and noticed flowers you left the the memorial in Montgomery County (fyi, I think he is buried in Williamson County.) Just wanted you to know he married Rachel Newcolm Manning/Mannering on 15 Feb 1827. She was the widow of William Mannering with whom she had at least six children. Beth

Gibbons family

I saw the note you left on the Bertha Gibbons memorial and I was wondering how you are related to her? I'm a great-grandson of her brother.

Vickie Arana
Painter family
Hi Emma, My name is Vickie and I seen you left a message at my Dad's memorial page. Where are you from? The Painter line that I come from are from Paintertown, Westmoreland Co., Pennsylvania. They are German decent. His father was Howard J. Painter, his father was Marchard Painter and his father was Jacob Painter. They were all from around the Paintertown area. Where is your family from? Is there any connection, do you think?

pine swamp
Good Stuff. Thanks for the note. It's just a hobby for me; Documenting cemeteries before they disappear is getting quite popular. Pine Swamp is in Northern Chester County, near the Berks County line, so it is possible the 'residents' of the cemetery could have come from either county. Drop me a note at and let me know which Painter's you are actually interested in. The next time I'm at the Chester County Historical Society I'll see if I can augment them with obits. Let me know where you are writing from.
