Was going through some notes I have reading about John Whitmire, signed into genealogy.com and there were Mitch's posts about John. I can remember my grandmother, wife of Jesse telling this story telling this story that also, coincidentally showed up in the notes I was looking at. My cousin Carolyn did some family research several years ago. She talked to Aunt Lula(r) and had the same thing in her notes from Aunt Lula that I can remember Grandma telling. I will look into calling Carolyn later as I know she talked to other family members too. Her notes from Aunt Lula say that John Whitmire was the s/o Stephen Whitmire (1760-1831). Stephen married Mary Porter and later married Elizabeth Downing (a cherokee woman). True or not, I don't know, but it is what Aunt Lular told Carolyn and I'm betting it came from the family Bible. I hope you will let me know what you know about this tale of Elizabeth Downing as I know that my grandmother mentioned her a few times and now I know that Aunt Lular told it too. I'll ask Carolyn if she has any idea where the bible went. Just trying to catch up on what has gone on since I got sidetracked with other business.
