Jim, a second matter of interest is your name. There were Whitmer/Witmore in the Harrisonburg area. Some were of Dunkard (Church of the Brethren) persuasion and one was buried in the cemetery where Peter Bowman and his family were buried. Bowman was an early Dunkard minister. He married a Mary Heatwole while they both lived in PA. That cemetery is along the War Branch River, west of Harrisonburg, not far from Rawley Springs. I have a listing of the burials there. Listed is one Lydia Whitmore, d. Dec. 31 1843, aged 30y 8m 26d. Emmert Bittinger, retired from Bridgewater College, is interested in tracing these Whitmer/Whitmore/Witmore families. I can put you in contact with him if you have family info. I'd be interested as well, since there may be a Heatwole connection. Frank Heatwole
