The father of sons-in-law Samuel L. Painter and Howard Taylor Painter was George Washington Painter (see Fig. R362a), who served in the 31st Virginia Infantry in the Civil War.

Bertha Allman [S096] provides this affectionate remembrance of her grandparents in their later years. “I have lots of memories of Grandfather Wood. My brothers Clarence and Hubert remember Grandmother, but she died the year I was born. Grandmother smoked a pipe according to Hubert, but suffered with asthma...

“Andy and Selina moved often until a small farm with a house was purchased for them by their sons Norval and Bruce...at Mingo. This is where Selina died. Norval said it was the coldest night he had ever experienced. The house was later torn down and Norval bought Bruce’s share. Andy lived with his son, Norval after the death of Selina.

“Andy was hard of hearing in his later years, but was a very hardy and active man. He was a little over six foot tall. Andy was a walker. He would walk to Mingo in the morning which was a distance of 2 to 3 miles, then in the afternoon if he thought of something else he needed he would go to Mace. To get to Mace this was another 2 or 3 miles, up over a hill and ‘through the woods.’ He walked each day until about six weeks before his death.

“Andy did the splitting of wood for the family use. In the fall the woodshed had to be full. He liked guns, watches and his dogs. He liked to trade guns and watches. Andy liked to cut brush and did a lot of trimming around the farm. In Andy’s later years, his favorite spot was in a rocking chair in the corner of the living room beside the warm morning stove. It was very hot but he enjoyed the heat.

“Andy was a regular member of his son’s family. Before school started in the fall Andy would walk the ‘nearpath’ that Norval’s children walked to school. He checked that the foot bridge that crossed a small stream was safe to walk across, if not it had to be repaired. He would do the repairs and make sure the path was cut free of brush. He was very particular that the bridge had hand rails.”

[S105] reports “‘Andy’ was a very strong man...He loved to hunt. A last purchase was a 30-30 rifle, when he was past 90. At 93 years he developed pneumonia which caused his death.”
