Separated from Oliver in Death: The Elizabeth Ann Whitmer Cowdery Memorial Dedication
Oliver Cowdery, Early Church History, Marriage, Missouri Mormon Frontier Museum
In June 2003, while on a research trip to Missouri, Derle and Margene Thorpe, directors of the Liberty Jail LDS Visitors’Center, made arrangements for me to meet with Dr. Lorene E. (Burdick) Pollard, the oldest known living descendant of John Whitmer. I had actually met Lorene in September 1999 following the dedication of a memorial grave marker erected by the Missouri Mormon Frontier Foundation in the cemetery in Kingston, Missouri, in honor of John and Sarah Jackson Whitmer. On that occasion Lorene represented the Whitmer family and gave some remarks about her illustrious early Mormon ancestors
