• Sarah Painter Humbert
• John Painter
• Robert Painter
• Thomas Painter

By honest labor and rigid economy he acquired property and supported a family of seven children named as follows; John, Robert, Thomas and Isaac, Jane, Sarah, and Hannah [...]" (Mary Antrim Roberts Autobiography (undated; late 1800s) in: Clyde V.
