The information on Henry Whitmer`s (my GGGrandfather) direct descendants is correct. His Father, Jacob Whitmore who was born in Cocalico, Lancaster, Pennsylvania, but I have been unable to trace the family further back; however, they are indications that they may have come from Switzerland. The information for other surnames may or may not be accurate. Lots of guesswork is found here. 21 Jan 19 I added several Ballards. Finally, after years of looking, I found the birthplace of my GGrandfather William Riley Ballard together with several additional Ballards some of whom I am not confident of the information posted here. Those before Willliam Hudson Ballard Sr need to be further researched to ensure the information is correct which has proven to be very difficult. The Alvin Harvey Whitmer branch was updated. (June 2012) Focus is on the following surnames: Ballard, Farris, Nix, Peterson, Selsor, and Whitmer. My Mother, Nelma Neoma Ballard Whitmer, died at home on Sept 22. 1997; age 83. My Father, Maurice E. Whitmer, died on August 1, 2005, at home at the age of 90. It was just the three of us. They were good parents, good people and I remember them every day. They are deeply missed. Maurice Eugene Whitmer Jr. Goiania, Brazil
