There is very little evidence pertaining to Peter Whetstone.  I only have un-sourced information
included on Family Group Sheets and some POSSIBLE estate documents.  There were more than one
Peter Whetstone in the Ohio area and it is almost impossible to determine which is which. 

This page is more of a collection place for information about people named Peter Whetstone.

Any further contributions will be welcomed.

This is the result of the search at BLM - I do not know at this time if this information relates to this Peter Whetstone (10 March 2011).
It seems to make sense that the 5 Patents at the bottom of the list would be more likely to be those of Peter Whetstone ID0400 since they are in Crawford County and they appear to be grouped together.
