Tombstone Tuesday ~ Christian & Mary Whitman
On the 29th of June I wrote about George Whitman. George's son is Christian Whitman. Christian was born 5 February 1807 in Adams County, Pennsylvania. Christian married Mrs. Mary Manning 2 February 1841 in Wayne County, Ohio, shortly after the family moved from Pennsylvania. Mary's maiden name might be Rater, according to a few sources. Christian died in 1888 and Mary in 1898. They are buried together at St. Peter & St. Paul's Catholic Church Cemetery, Doylestown, Wayne County, Ohio. Mary and Christian had ten children together. Their eldest son, George born in 1841, (five months after the marriage...) is my ancestor.
