I am also researching the Whitman family. Hannah whitman born Jan 2 1793 to Ruth James and William Whitman married Charles Simmons in 1813 in Norway Herkimer Co. Her daughter Arminda Hannah Simmons married my 5 x great grandfather James Madison Barnes. She and her mother Hannah and James are all buried in Evergreen Cemetery, Painesville OH where I was born. I have photos of their tombstones. They lived in Mentor OH Lake County where James was a hotel owner of Mentor House. Arminda was James' second wife and it is not certain whether she was the mother of my 4 x great grandfather Eli Augustus Barnes or the step mother.
In the Barbara Olin/Valentine Whitman records they list William who married Ruth James was a son but sometimes do not list Hannah as a daughter.
William Whitman b: April 27, 1770, d: June 17, 1854, m. Ruth James. He was in Lenox.
The Valentine Whitman family (also Wightman) go way back to an ancestor that was burned as a heretic in England. I would gladly exchange what I have about this family. You can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
