Speculation on the Rightmire name

I am going to post this information although it is not my research but was sent to me by e-mail in 1997. The gentleman who sent it to me did not authorize me to use his name so I will not. He claims he compiled a History of the Conrad Richtmyer family of Saugerties, N.Y. and states they have spread all over the U.S. He suspected that the family of Rightmires I was researching belonged to another family of Rightmyers that began with Johan Lodowick Rightmyer of New Jersey about 1725. He thought many of these families spelled there name Rightmire and I should try researching in Pennsylvania, Kentucky and Virginia. I have yet to prove my grt, grt, grt Grandfather Benjamin Rightmire who married Martha Holt in Coshocton County Ohio and moved to Hardin County Ohio in 1833 to either family. Although I have some reason to beleive Benjamins parents may have been James and Elizabeth (Daughtery) Rightmire. Any help appreciated. Alice
