Samuel Painter and his wife, Katherine Frank came to Pike County, Indiana between 1850 and 1860. Samuel resided on Mud Creek, Section 31, Twp 1 S, Rge 7 W. They were part of a group migration from Montgomery and Preble Counties of the Miami Valley in Ohio which included members of the Frank and Snyder families.

Simon P. Frank owned a grist mill in Sec. 29, Twp 1 N, Rge 7 W. He was the son of David and Maria Louisa Frank of Dauphin County, PA and Montgomery County, OH. Simon married Rhoda Hayes in Pike County in 1845. After Rhoda's death in 1854, Simon married a woman named Sarah.

David Frank patented land in Pike County but apparently died prior to 1840. His widow Maria Louisa Frank then lived in the household of her son, Simon P. Frank. She died after 1860. Simon died in 1885 in Pike County.

The possible relationship of Katherine Frank Painter to the above Frank family is under investigation.

The ancestors of Samuel Painter are also under investigation. It is not known if Samuel was related to Louisa Painter, a pioneer of Pike County. It seems most likely that Samuel came to Ohio as a child from Shenandoah, Rockingham or Botetourt County, Virginia in the early 1800s. He and Kathrine (Katy) Frank were married before 1840 and lived about fifteen years in Preble County, Ohio before coming to Petersburg in Pike County.

Samuel Painter's son David, married Cynthia Morton, the daughter of Elijah Morton and Nancy Crane. Cynthia was the granddaughter of Joseph Morton. The Mortons had joined a group migration from Mercer County, Kentucky. The Banda family of Mercer County, Kentucky and Montgomery County, Ohio may have played a role in the migrations from both Kentucky and Montgomery County, Ohio.

Samuel Painter's son Jeremiah married Austina Klutz of Pike County. Samuel's son Henry, may be the Henry Painter who married Ellen Burale in Pike County. The marriages of Samuel and Katy's other children is speculative: Louisa perhaps marrying Andrew Snyder and John possibly marrying into the Leslie family of Pike County.

At least three of Samuel and Katy's sons served in the Civil War from Indiana. Sons John and Jeremiah are buried in Pike County. Son, David, migrated in the 1880s to Kansas, first to Newton and later to Medicine Lodge.
