From Floyds -
" The Moser family now well known in the northern portion of Northumberland county is descended from Peter Moser, a native of Berks county, Pa., who in 1838 came to Derry township, then in Northumberland county, but now included in Montour county. He had considerable land and was a lifelong farmer, being succeeded on his home place by his son-in-law, Gideon Dietrich. He was an early live stock dealer, and was a prominent and successful man, being able to give a farm to each of his nine children. He is buried at Washingtonville Church, which he helped to build, being one of the foremost members of the Lutheran congregation there; he served many years in the church council. His children were as follows:
Jacob,
Samuel,
John,
George,
Henry,
Fred,
Mrs. Samuel Shirey,
Sallie (wife of Samuel Snyder),

shall remove into the new house over the hill & shall possess the same during 
her widowhood but never the less with the will and consent of my said wife and 
not otherwise. And if it should happen as aforesaid she then nevertheless shall

allows her. And further I order that after the death of my said widow my

his birthright five shillings aforehand and this shall be in full for his 
second share and no more but shall a equal share with the rest. And in case one 
of my younger children or any of those, which are yet under my care should die 
then I order that the share of the one so dying shall be equally divided 
amongst the rest.

And I hereby nominate and appoint John Nissly and Abraham Sherer of Mountjoy

Executors after the decease of my said widow to give the purchaser of my said 
land a good title for the same his heirs and assigns as fully and amply as if I

as aforesaid to sell my land at public venue for cash or in yearly payments as 
also my moveable goods as they shall find proper and divide and divide the sum 
among my children as well as they can. And I do hereby make null and void all 
former and other wills by me heretofore made, claiming this and no other as my 
Last Will and Testament. In witness whereof I John George Bender have hereunto

=========================================================
The Bender family, pronounced Bainter, immigrated to Pennsylvania from Germany in the early 1700's. During the Revolutionary War, the British hired German mercenaries to fight on their behalf. After the war, the families of these mercenaries and many other innocent Germans were persecuted for their mercenary activities. To avoid this persecution, some Benders moved to Virginia and anglicized their name to Painter
============================================================================
From Find a Grave -
Information below provided by "Bender-Bainter-Painter Smith and the Allied Families of Phillipson-Marino-Alioto" by Joseph Linn Marino. Future research must be done to confirm that he was the father of Henry and George Bender.

Johann Georg Bender, known as "the Younger", was born 24 April 1722 and christened 26 April 1722. He remained behind in Germany when his father, Hans Georg Bender first immgrated to the colony of Pennsylvania. After his grandparents had passed away in Germany, Johann's father returned home to settle his parents' estate. Johann Georg then accompanied his father back to Pennsylvania, travelling on the ship "Duke of Bedford" which arrived September 14, 1751. Having settled in Lancaster county, John George Bender (as he was called in Pennsylvania), married to Maria Regina Kraemer, daughter of Christopher Kraemer, on June 21, 1752. Maria Regina having died in 1767, he married a second time to Anna Elizabeth, who was still living when Johann Georg Bender wrote his last Will and Testament on February 21, 1782. He died in Mount Joy Township in Lancaster county.

CHRIST REFORMED CHURCH, ELIZABETHTOWN

Rev. L. C. T. Miller, Pastor

The year 1744 marks the date of the organization of a congregation that is

usually regarded as the beginning of Christ Church, Elizabethtown. In this year

the Rev. John Lischy organized a group of Reformed people into a congregation at

Centerville, now Milton Grove, located about five miles northeast of

Elizabethtown. The Moravians and Lutherans were already worshipping at this

place when the Reformed congregation was organized. Little is known about this

congregation except that very shortly after its organization a disagreement

arose with the result that the Reformed group was forced to seek elsewhere for a

place to worship.

There was another group of Reformed people in the northwestern end of what is

now Lancaster County, who came together for worship as early as 1721. The Rev.

Michael Schlatter visited this group in 1747, and reported that John Conrad

Tempelmann had been preaching to those people for some time. In his report to

the Holland Church, Schlatter mentions "the congregation at Jeremiah Miller's in

Donegal where seventeen men promised 8 pounds and 38 bushels of fruit" for the

support of a pastor.

One of the most prized historical possessions of the Elizabethtown congregation

is a deed bearing the date, July 28, 1767, in which Peter Blasser and his wife,

Magdalena, conveyed one acre of land for the consideration of twenty shillings

of lawful money of Pennsylvania, with annual rental of "one grain of wheat" to

certain men designated as "Representatives of the High Dutch Presbyterian

Congregation". Of equal value, historically, to the congregation is a recently

discovered church record containing a list of 422 baptisms, written in German

script by the ministers who served the congregation from 1752 to 1809. Since

the Donegal congregation or "Blasser's", as it came to be known after 1767, was

not more than four or five miles from the Centerville group, and in view of a

combination of circumstances that are historically reliable, it is not without

reason to conclude that Lischy's organization united with this congregation some

time between 1744 and 1767. Although the year, 1744, has been accepted as the

date of the organization of Christ Church, it is certain that its antecedents

reach back considerably earlier than this date.

Not much is known about the years 1767-1815. The Rev. John Runkel, 1779-1784,

reported 20 families in the closing year of his pastorate. Rev. Runkel also

reports 11 pupils as students in the "church school," probably a parochial

school.

The year 1815 is an important date in the history of the Elizabethtown

congregation, for it was then that Blasser's was abandoned and the congregation

brought to Elizabethtown. Here a church was erected on a site less than one

square from the present location. With the improvements that were made from

time to time, this building continued to serve the needs of the congregation

until 1909, when the present edifice was dedicated.

Family Research Notes on George Bender 1721 - 1782
(no author given, found on ancestry.com)
To find my Bender line I had to research every Bender line in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, to ensure I had the right man. Others helped me work them out for the same purpose then decided to finish the project just out of general interest. I have or will post all of the information I have found on all these lines so that other researchers can use the information. You should double check everything I have worked on, no doubt there are a few mistakes. Some of what I have found on this family will make more than a few people raise an eyebrow, but this is what the evidence shows. Published genealogies without sources are simply not reliable.

I also used Y-Dna testing by familytreedna.com to break down my brick wall and encourage others to use it. Y-Dna matches in combination with a good paper trail proved my line and found several long lost branches and proved their lines. Y-Dna testing is ongoing for this family.

I believe I have posted all the documents and information that can reasonably be found on the family of John George Bender 1721 - 1782. The evidence shows he purchased a warrant from some unknown person then settled on it on or after 1756. Before that time no Benders of any spelling lived in Mount Joy or Donegal Townships as tax payers. George Bender was a Lutheran and his wife Anna Elisabetha was a member of the Reformed Church and she is mentioned in the records as far back as 1771 and as the mother of Henry born in 1756.

There is a lot of unproven genealogy on this family that tracks back to a book called "the Bender-Bainter-Painter Book" by Joseph Marino and edited by Sandy Fackler. Mr. Marino, due to illness, was not able to finish his research project and at his death left monies to hire someone to finish his book. Ms. Fackler was hired to put together the existing notes into a genealogy, but not to research or double check the information. The book appears accurate until it reaches the early family then the research falls apart.

Here are some of the mistakes:

1. The families noted before John George Bender 1722 – 1782 did not exist as they are presented. Tax records show these people did not live in Lancaster County let alone Donegal Township.

2. If Georg Bender was married to Regina Kramer she died shortly after as the records only show her as his wife. The Lutheran Church records state that Anna Elizabeth was the mother of son Henry born in 1756, contrary to what the book states.

3. The eldest son Henry Bender did not serve in the German Regiment proved by the pension record of the true Henry Bender/Painter of Virginia. He did not serve in Capt. Custer/Kuster’s Company from Warwick Township, but he did serve in Capt. Abraham Scott’s Company, Col. Lowery’s Battalion on active duty. A Y-DNA comparison between a descendents of Henry Bender of Bedford County, Pa, and Fayette County, Ohio, with a descendent of George bender's son John Bender show no relation as the book states.

4. George Bender of Fayette County, Ohio, did not marry Susannah Nissly, he was thought to have married first Catherine Stuckey then married her sister Susannah Stuckey of Washington County, Maryland. This is proven by her father’s estate and deeds. That is why they followed the Stuckey's to Bedford/Somerset County and on to Ohio and why they are buried in the Stuckey Family cemetery. Dna is needed to prove this connection also.

  5. The daughter Margaret did not marry Abraham Stuckey, he was married to Margaret Peterson, Margaret Bender was the second wife of Valentine Wisehaupt who moved with her brother John Bender to Juniata County about 1801. Valentine Wisehaupt was also first married to her sister Elizabeth. This is documented in the Juniata County History, church records and articles on Valentine Wisehaupt.

6. There was no Bender Mill on Chickies Creek that was owned by this family. There were Mills owned by other Benders in Lancaster County in Manor and Earl Townships.

7. Some of the families mentioned that were put in the wrong family or never existed:

Pages 9-19 Children of Georg Bender & Katrina Hostettler (This family was thought to be Mennonite)

1.  Johan George Bender 1721 –1782, since proven wrong by Y-DNA testing.

2. Johan Peter Bender b. 11 Oct 1737 -1820 Chickies Creek, Donegal, Lancaster m. Catherine Babb. He is actually the son of Christoff Bender who came in 1750 and settled in Plainfield Twp., Northampton Co., Pa, - no relation. The Plainfield Benders are a well researched and proven line.

3. Johan Heinrich Bender b. 1737 m. Catherine Betz – He lived in Warwick and Hempfield Townships, Lancaster, was associated with a Peter Bender. No connection found with any other Bender family.

4. Jacob Bender b. 1740 Donegal to 1820 m. Elizabeth Catherine Schaeffer – He is a brother of Peter and son of Christoff Bender of Plainfield Twp., Northampton County born in Germany. – no relation.

5. Johan David Bender b. 1743 m. Anna Schnaeble – he is the son of Adam Bender of Earl and Leacock Townships, no relations. This line is also well documented.

6. Johann Bender b. 1746 – Probably the brother of David above and no relation to the Mt Joy Benders.


Page 10

Johannes Bender 1706 – 1782 Bender Mill Chickies Creek M. Maria Neff, 2nd Catherine Frederick

This man never existed in Lancaster County and never lived in Donegal or Mt Joy. The John Bender that died in 1782 was from Kirchardt, Baden and no relation to the Mt Joy Benders. The John Bender married to Catherine also lived in Warwick Township, also from Kirchardt, Baden.

There is no evidence that any of the families mentioned in the book before John George Bender 1722 - 1782 existed, no sources or documentation.

It appears that George and Henry Bender/Bainter/Bender of Fayette County, Ohio, are the sons of John George Bender of Mt Joy, Lancaster, but there are no legal documents to make the connection. This can easily be solved by comparing Y-Dna between the descendents of Henry and George of Fayette County, Ohio, with the descendents of John Bender who settled in Juniata County, PA. Y-DNA testing was completed and the tests show no match between Henry Bender of Bedford, PA and Fayette County, Ohio with the John Bender family of Juniata County, PA. The testing did show a match with the Bender lines that came from Kirchardt, Baden.
