Joseph Painter

The headstone of Joseph and Sarah Painter indicates the following:
Joseph Painter (1823-1894)
Sarah his wife (1831-1917)
However, this headstone appears to be a modern stone that was placed on the grave many years after their deaths. Joseph's first, small headstone is still there and reads simply, "Jos. Painter 1897." Sarah's birth year may be incorrect on this modern headstone. According to her death certificate she was born February 1830. This information was given by C.C. Painter who did not know the day of month she was born or where in Pennsylvania she was born. He also did not know her mother's maiden name. So, the reliablility of the information given is questionable. He said that Sarah's father was John Hoffman who was born in Pennsylvania.

Sarah (Hoffman) Painter

The Certificate of Death of Sarah Painter indicates that she died in Pine Creek [Township], County of Jeff, Pennsylvania. It indicates that her full name was Sarah Painter, that she was female, white, a widow, and retired. It indicates she was born Feb -, 1830, in Penna. Her age was given as 87 years one month and - days. The name of her father was given as John Hoffman and he born in Penna. Maiden name of mother and her mothers birthplace is given as "don't know." The person testifying to this information was C.C. Painter of Falls Creek. The doctor providing the medical certificate of death, Jay C. Booker (of Falls Creek), said that Sarah died Apr 18th, 1917, and the cause of death was intestinal carcinoma of about one year duration. Sarah was buried in Emerickville, Apr 20, 1917, by N.R. Moore, Undertaker, of DuBois, Pennsylvania.

"Jeff" county is likely Jefferson County since that is where she lived and where Pine Creek is. However, "Pine Creek" is written in light blue ink in a decidedly different hand than the rest of the document. It may have been added by someone through whose hands this Cerificate of Death has passed.

Draft Registration Card of James Monroe Painter

The World War I draft registration card for James Monroe Painter indicated he was living in Conifer, Jefferson County, Pennsylvania. He says that his closest living relative is Mrs. Mary Painter. That was his wife. He said his birth date was April 10, 1873, and indicated that he was forty-five years old. This birth date is two years earlier than most other records which indicate he was born on April 10, 1875. But, by being over the age of forty-five this may have made him ineligible for the draft. The card said that he was currently employed as a mule drive in a mine working for the Allegheny River Mining Company. It indicated he was white, native born, tall, of medium build, eyes grey in color, hair grey in color, and not physically disqualified from service. The card was signed September 12, 1918. The name of the registrar (from the signature) appears to be Union Lutz.
