trying to locate my Whitmore family. They are of Germany desent and I have reason to believe my GGG frandfathers family was in Clearfield, Penn. when he came to the Firelands of Ohio about 1832 when He was approximately 22 years old. He married in 1836 to a Christiana Wyand. There marriage record has her name as Christian and his name as Randolph. On his tombstone his name is recorded as Rudolph Whitmore. On other papers the name is spelled as Ruidolph and the last name as Whitmore,Whitmar, Wetmore, Whitmer, Wittmer. He purchased and owned until his death 70 acres along lake Erie, where he had a fruit farm,fishing and sand dredging business. At his death in 1880 his son inherited the farm and businesses and in 1905 sold it to the Catholic of Dioseases of Cleveland, Ohio who still own it. His sons name was John W. Whitmer. I have his family Bible.
Any help would be appreciated.
