  1. I can only find this one book by Rightmyer in a computer search of the database at the Library of Congress. I did find a reference to a very short book review in The Biblical World, Vol. 50, No. 2 (Aug., 1917), pp. 125-125. I presume the publisher is long extinct, but its archives might be in a Boston Public Library or a nearby university library.

    My perusal of the book suggests he must have been a very interesting character. If you find out more, then I hope you will share it. I like little mysteries like this.

    There are some Levi Rightmyers listed on familysearch.org, two who were born in New York in 1853. One of them might be this Levi Rightmyer, and the people who posted his information in the Pedigree Resource File may have more information on him.

    I found this listing “Church of the True Believers, Levi Rightmyer, Treasurer. ” in Lloyd’s pocket companion and guide through New York City, for 1866-67 online at http://www.archive.org/stream/lloydspocketcomp00lloy/lloydspocketcomp00lloy_djvu.txt

    The church is listed in this Google book as well http://books.google.com/books?id=sBM1AAAAIAAJ&pg=PA692&lpg=PA692&dq=%22Church+of+the+true+believers%22+New+York&source=bl&ots=WXLb_-6Yc5&sig=B4jSyLIaLu0-DvPU7Hzvt4rZEeQ&hl=en&ei=3zccSpDNIZm4tgOcodGSDw&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=4
