- Letter of William T. Painter
dated 3 January 1941
I can well remember Zeke Painter and was present when he was burried. Iwell remember my Grandparents on both sides. Grandfather Hudson foughtin an Ind. Regiment (He was a Teamster), drove 4 mules for comisary allthrough Civil War. Died 1887 - 60 years of age was 6 ft. 6 in. high wore14 shoe, lankey and strong, liked to play cards, worked hard. Lottie hasa letter he wrote home in NOv. 1863 just before battle of Look-outMountain. Grandma saved it.
I remember one of the Painters, as Dad told it was a great man for finehorses. Lived in Penn. Kept Race Horses, Great for Sports. One went toVirginia, got his name in Who's Who as an Educator, One of my otherRelatives known as Uncle John Martin, was a noted builder and contractorin Indianapolis, Ind. and mother worked at his home some while she was ayoung lady. He did most building in Indianapolis for about 40 years,1840 to 1880 (guess). Zeke Painter moved from Franklin Co., Ind. in thefall of 1857, settled near Williamsburg, Mo. Quite q story to move in awagon train. No bridge on Mississippi at that time.
The Painters in Ind. were widely known for their hard work, reallyhustling, good farmers. Uncle Isaac (Pa's brother) was 5 yrs. youngerthan my dad. His first wife's name was Lizzie. I remember when she diedshe was the first corpse I ever saw. Uncle Ike went back to Ind. SpencerCo. I believe and married Aunt Nicey and her name was Painter before shewas married. Some cousin, I dont know how near but do know she was agood woman, always sweet, patient, kind. She just died lately over 80yrs. of age. Gold star mother.
Everett Painter, oldest son of Uncle Ike is just a little younger than Iand we lived near neighbors in old Mo. Just a few years before Maim wasborn. Boys together for about 3 yrs, '87 to '90. Edna Balky is adaughter of Everett Painter, very nice. They live near N. Kansas City,Mo. R.5. She can tell a lot about Painters. There is a lot of UncleIsaac's descendants in and around K. City, even to Great Grand Children.
Never knew a Painter to get hung or sent to states prison or go to thepoor house.
Dave McCaferty married Nancy Carr. Nancy Carr was sister to EllenderCarr. Ellender Carr married Geo. Hudson. My mother's own aunt NancyCarr was wife of Dad's own Uncle Dave McCaferty. So Dave Cafertie'schildren were first cousins to Zeke Painter's children through GrandmaPainter and Dave McCafertie's children were first cousin's to Geo.Hudson's children through Grandma Hudson. Grandma Hudson's name: Theycalled her Nellie, some say Ellender, we called her Grandma. Extra goodat all needle work, good cook, quick temper, - many hardships, GrandmaHudson with family of small children to support while Grandfather servedin war, 3 years. Jimie, Ellen, Will, Rosie, Samp - Monroe and Emma bornafter the war. I played with the two youngest in old Montgomery in theearly '80s that would take a lot of time and energy to diagram thatfamily. Mary Lucket if still living is my Uncle Jim Hudson's daughter(F.D.: she died last summer) and exceptionally good woman and has knownshat it was to be left with a family to support. She sure did a good jobof it. Educated her children well and there is a great bunch, even ofUncle Jims, if she is there and in good health she may help quite a lot.Ike McCaferty lives in Montgomery yet so I have been told he is one ofUncle Dave McCafertie's sons. Dont think he would take much interest andhe is getting old but one could talk with him. John McCaferty was a bigstrong man. Went to Alaska in the Gold Rush 1898, most likely died onthe Chillcoot Pass (where many failed to get over the terriable mountain)never heard from. Some McCaferties live on farm near Montgomery. UncleDave McCaferty did not stay in Calloway Co. He settled on a creek calledElkhorn, just no. of Montgomery, and lived in Montgomery for years.
Alice McCaferty was a pal of my mother's for years, early 80's Iremember, Alice took care of our mother June 1883 when Clinton was born.Alice married Jim Cole, and their Descendants are living in and near oldMontgomery. Mary Lucket posibly could tell. Jim Cole Jr. so I haveheard was a Truck drived, having a number of big trucks of his own. Ibelieve he is in Audrian Co. No. of Montgomery. Pa's brother WillPainter was born in Ind. 1837, ten years older than Pa. exceptionallystrong man, I believe we could find old timers to this day that couldtestify as to his super strength. He never married. Died in Memphis,Tenn. hospital after much exposure and being wounded in Civil War. AuntLouise Pa's half sister about 18 years older that Pa [corrected to 8years older] married Nicholson. It seems there were other Nicholsons ofhis relatives who had been to Minn. in early days and returned to Ind.and persuaded Wm., Aunt Louise's man, to go to Minn. They left Ind. atthe same time Zeke Painter did, with the same wagon train. They partedin Ill., Nicholson went up near Winona first, later went to Lacquparelco., then Dawson. Dawson was not though of until the R.R. went thru. Paoften told me he so dearly loved Louise and how grieved they were topart. Louise had been married 1 yr., had her baby Geo. in her arms. Henever saw Louise again or even saw her grave. She was a strong woman,faithful worker, kind and sweet. I was present in the fall of 1887 whenGeo. Nicholson came to our home in old Pulaski, and my dad said HowdyGeo. How you have changed. Dad - 40 Geo. 30 at that time. Geo. wasbig man weighed about 200, looked much like Zeke Painter. Geo. worked inPulaski Co., Mo. about 1 yr. and returned to Minn. I was in Dawson in1913 and had a visit with Aunt Louise. She had experienced manyhardships. Her husband Wm. Nicholson
was a Farmer, also mechanic. He worked far, run an all around shop(Blacksmith, harness maker, wagon maker) and Aunt Louise ran a restaurantwith light gro. for about 30 yrs. in Dawson. Steady and faithful,strickly honest. There were 3 children Geo., John, and Mattie. I knowJohn and Geo. are dead. Mattie married a Montana Lumber man namedDonaldson. Mattie had a great record as a school teacher. I believeplenty people around Dawson who well remember the Nicholsons - Wm,Louise, and John are buried in Dawson Cemetery and have Monuments, withDates as usual, I saw them - as best I know no living descendants.Grandfather Hudson is burried in Montgomery Cemetery with Monument.
David Painter, our Dad, served inthe State Militia (like National Guards)in time of the Civil War. He was on active Duty in spring of 1865,headquarters at Fulton. There was terriable times in that part of Mo. inthose days the people were so much divided as to the north and south, andmany outlaws took advantage of the situation, to murder and rob.Danville the Co. seat of Montgomery Co. at that time and the largest townbetween St. Louis and Kansas City in early days during the Civil War theRebels raided Danville, killed all men they could, took all property theycould carry off, and burned about all the buildings. The Malitia wasorgainized to protect the citizens, and their property. Grandad Painterwas strong for the Union and some Rebels come to his home in Calloway andknocked him on head with hatchet and left him for dead but he came out ofit and lived about 20 years. dad ranged from Fulton to Mexico, Mo, wason duty at Danville part time. Never Rec'd half the pay he was promised,and no pension. Dad served as an apprentice under Dave McCaferty forthree years to learn the carpenter trade, and in those days it was sodifferent to be a good carpenter. Many timbers were hewn out of logs byhand especially for framing. The foot Addz was a much used tool in thosedays, now almost forgotten and nails were much more expensive and held asof inferior stuff. Frame work was morticed and held with special woodenpins and then sanded off smooth on good jobs, but poor folks had groundfloor or rough floors. In the summer of 1886 David Painter contracted tobuild a large barn just a little N.E. of Montgomery. I was out theremany times, yet I worked at Tobacco factory steady then. Dad Hewed outTimbers and built that barn, and I saw it in Nov. 1930 44 yrs later andit still plumb true, not lop sided as so many old buildings and they hadjust put a new roof on it so it may be o.k. for yrs. Now where Andre'sfamily is in Calloway Co. is not so very far from where the old Painterhome was in 1857. I was there in 1930 and the old pile of rocks wherethe fire place was and well walled with rocks and a very few pieced oftimber still remained, I cut a small piece from what I calculated hadbeen a plate over the door and I believe Lottie has it. The old timersstill call it the old Painter place. I was on that place in the fall of1885 and my dad showed me the knots on trees by the road side where heand other boys had thrown rocks at and shot at years before. AndHenriettie, Aunt Fannie, and Dick and I believe, Margret, were bornthere, but none died there. Will Painter, in war, died in MemphisHospital while others lived there. Margret was not born until after thewar. I remember when she died. It was just a short time before Grandpadied. I believe it was blood poison, not sure. I am sure Aunt Henrietahad a daughter married to a farmer. Best I recall he was Thomas and Ihad dinner with Mrs. Thomas. She was very nice and I saw her daughter ayoung lady at that time 1930, was just planning her wedding. Now AuntHenriettie never writes, very little schooling she had except hard work.She was born 1860 so you see if still living she is past 80 yrs. If youwould write to her and send enclose a letter to her daughter I believesome of them would answer. I was told the Granddaughter married abanker. Aunt Henriettie has lived within a few miles of the old Painterhouse in Calloway also the one in Montgomery Co. for all these years andnever been to see them, never traveled, just lived in Americus right nearthe church. She was noted for Good garden and chickens, good cook andhousekeeper, no gossip, no rows. Never had a ride on a train and verylittle was ever in a car.

I believe Aunt Fannies birthday was Dec. 15th or 16, 1863. One ofAndrews sons (William) was born Feb. 29, 1924. Best of my knowledge ZekePainter born 1803 or about. Geo. R. Hudson born 1828 - Died 1887.Grandma Hudson born 1832 - Died 1906 in Ind. Aunt Louise born - Died1914.
There is an old Painter cemetery on the old Painter Place in MontgomeryCo. I could enjoy strolling over the old place and relating incidentsthat were impressed on my mind when I was a boy. The cemetery is markedby large flat stones No inscriptions. Aunt Fannie knows where each onelays and she is the only living one who does know. I saw some of themburried and have been told where each one was but never drew any plan andafter years I could not be sure. Many of the old logs that Dad helped tohew out that were in the old Painter Home have been used in otherbuildings on the farm, and a frame house takes the place. Seem very nicefolks. They held Painter Reunions for years but I never attended one andDad never attended one and I fear that they will not have any more.
Some Painter lived in Mpls. years ago. They had business on Hennepin, Ithink Job Printing. I saw in a Cemetery west of Mpls. a large monumentto Painter. One W.R. Painter was Lieutenant Gov. of Mo. about 26 yrs.ago.
