    Carpenter and Beulah had 10 boys and 4 girls. They were early pioneers to Elk County. Natives of Maine, they came to Clearfield County, PA in 1820. They lived one year there, then went to Punxsutawney, PA until 1828, when they moved to Benezette Township, Elk County. They apparently endured many hardships incident to pioneer life, bringing all their provisions in a canoe from Lock Haven ( a distance of 75 miles), taking two and a half days to push the canoe up the stream. Carpenter raised his family on a 600 acre farm in Benezette. The cemetery on Winslow Hill is a part of this farm. Winslow Hill is the most scenic spot in the Benezette area because of the view from the top of the hill.

    He was elected supervisor in the first Benezette Township elections of 1846. In 1844 was listed a resident taxpayer of Jay township along with Reuben , E.C. and Charles Winslow. Carpenter and Beulah lived with son George during the latter years of their life.
