Looking for any info on Painter / Paynter family in or around the Massies Mill, Tyro, or Montebello area in Amherst or Nelson County in the 1800's. Specifically looking for Elizabeth Paynter who married Adam Leighton in Sept 1828. Had a daughter named Mary.

Also looking for another relative, Winifred (Winnie) Campbell, born abt 1804, married a ? Painter around 1820 and died Oct 1892 at Massies Mill. Their children were Eliza (22), Margaret (20), Robert (18), Candis (16), and Elizabeth Painter(12). Note the change in spelling of Paynter/Painter Per 1850 Census. Trying to find out who here husband was. Any help would be great. Thanks, Charles
