Yes, there is a connection. Jonathan Whitmore's line begins with Francis Whitmore of Cambridge, the Immigrant, and his second wife, Margaret Harty, as follows: Jonathan>Joseph>Joseph>Joseph>Joseph>Francis.
This Whitmore line (We call it the Joseph Line) moved from Woburn and Leominster, MA to Chester, Windsor, VT, then to NY and points west.

And as you noted, your Francis Whitmore lieutenant of Cambridge MA b. 12 oct 1650 d. 9 Sep 1700 (Middleton, CT) was the son of Francis Whitmore and his first wife, Isabel Parke. (Source: DESC OF FRANCIS WHITMORE OF CAMBRIDGE, MASS, W. H. Whitmore, Boston, 1855)

There are both WHITMORE and WETMORE families that descend from the first Francis and several books are in print with their early histories in MA and CT.

Johnathan WHITMORE went to Ellisburgh, NY. We are looking for his descendants so that they may be included in a list of descendants from Joseph Whitmore of Chester, VT. Jonathan's brother, Sylvanus WHITMORE, went to Chautauqua Co., NY and another brother, Joseph WHITMORE Jr.'s family went to Cayuga County, NY.
