I'm not a BAINTER researcher, but I have a 1915 history of Shelby Co., Iowa, with a biography for GEORGE E. McMULLEN, b. Sept 27, 1857 at St. Joseph Co., Indiana, near South Bend. He is the son of DAVID and ELIZABETH (BAINTER) McMULLEN, both natives of Ohio. David McMullen was son of Samuel McMullen, a native of Virginia. ELIZABETH BAINTER, was a daughter of FREDERICK BAINTER, her mother's maiden name being ROOF. Her maternal grandfather, ROOF, was a patriot of the Revolutionary War, being the only veteran of that was who lies buried at South Bend, Indiana. The family of ROOF was originally from Germany and first settled in the state of Pennsylvania. David and Elizabeth (Bainter) McMullen moved their family to Shelby Co., Iowa, in the fall of 1874, locating on an 80-acre farm near Harlan, Iowa. He farmed until 1892 when he retired and took up residence in Harlan, living there quietly until his death in 1897. His widow, Elizabeth (Bainter) McMullen died in 1900. David McMullen was a man of marked domestic traits, taking infinite pleasure in his home, family, and the training of his children. He was the father of four children, Maggie, Lizzy, Sarah, George E. Elizabeth (Bainter) McMullen was a most devoted church woman, being a member of the German Society of Dunkards.
If anyone wants the entire bio, please let me know.
