The Catalog for Sotheby's auction sale 5905 that took place on 14 Oct. 1989 pictures as item 112 a full family portrait oil painting ca. 1825 of Jay Michael Kitzmiller (1782-1849) & Maryann Kitzmiller (1793-) and their four children, Eli George (1815-), Honoria Elizabeth (1816-), Zebulon John (1819-1884), & Louisa Maria Christiana (1833-). All of the children were baptized in Littletown, Union Township, Adams County, Pennsylvania, where the family likely lived.
The artist of the painting was the great Pennsylvania folk artist Jacob Maentel (1763-1863).
This fine family portrait should be made known to the Kitzmiller family. I am scanning it in case any members of the family might like a copy freely by email. Someone in the Kitzmiller family ought to have it--it is too good to be missed by the family.

Please note that there is a period between my first & last name & between the two parts of the last part of my email address.
If it were a portrait of a Pease family of this time, I'd certainly want someone to do the same for me.
