Del, I have a little information that I received in an email about Peter whose wife was Catherine Snyder . Peter Whitmer was the son of Samuel Witmer, born 4 Apr 1771.Samuel married Sarah Coldren, and they were the parents of nine children.Samuel was the son of another Peter, born in Hertzheim, Nassau-Dillingsburgsh of the Kingdom of Prussia, in 1737. This Peter was the son of Peter Widmer, born ca. 1698 in the Canton of Zurich, Switzerland. Peter's father was Johannes (Hans) Widmer, son of Johann Jakob Widmer, of Sumiswald, Switzerland. I also have genealogy information on descedants of Josiah Whitmer.
