*In the 1820 Census, the third column is age class 16-18 and the fourth column is age class 16-25; therefore, any individual in column three is duplicated in column four.
Either the birthyears of the boys are wrong or we have some enumerator error.  Still, there seems little doubt this household is our subject's.  List is alphabetical, so no neighborhood reconstruction is possible.  Other "WHITMERs/WHITMIREs" in Rockingham County:  Martin, Mary, Jacob, Esther, David, John, Jacob, Elizabeth, John, Mariah, and David.

5.  1840 Census Index and Digital Images (online at Ancestry.com):  Mary is not listed as head-of-household, so she is probably living with someone.  She's not living with Peter BRENEMAN (see 1850) because no woman even near Mary's age is in his household.  I checked all the WHITMORE households in Rockingham Co.; and, based on age, she is not living with any of them.
