Group Description

The PAINTER FAMILY RESEARCH group has been created to further our
search of the Painter family that originated in the Rhineland Pfalz
Wurttemberg region of Germany, where the surname was Bender.
Hans George Bender (1699) and his wife Kathrina (Hostetter) Bender
(1701-1775) came to America on the ship SAMUEL, from Rotterdam in
the early 1700's. They settled in the area of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
Some of the family moved to Ohio and Indiana where they changed their names
to Painter, Bainter, Paynter, Panter, Pointer, Panther and other
variations. We will welcome the various spellings of the Painter name.
Please join us in sorting out these families.
