In looking at your information on Lee White of Wayne Co., WVA I have correct information on him. He was my grand father.
Lee died May 21, 1927 in the Kessler-Hatfield Hospital in Huntington, WVA as a result of a gun shot wound to the neck.
He was born November 19, 1881 in NC. His mother was Martha Ann White, his father was Nate Dunlap. Martha and Nate never married. Nate was married to another woman. Martha's father was Fredrick White. I have copies of Lee and Marhta's death certificates.
My ancestors Jacob R. & Catharine White moved from Pennsylvania to Clinton Co., Illinois in mid 1840's, died shortly thereafter (suspect from Asian Cholera) leaving several orphans. Have traced some of their whereabouts... into Curry Co., OR, Bourbon Co., KS and Berry Co., MS. Am anxious to reconnect or at least find more info... anyone researching this area?
I am a granddaughter to Samuel Ellysworth (Garner) White. I was told by my father William Peter White, that Sam was born in County Cork, Ireland Dec. 18, 1877. The story goes, Sam's the second child was coming to America his mother pregnant with the third child and father and older brother family name was Garner. While on board the ship his father died. Sam's was traveling with another family from Ireland named White. Mr. White and his family had very large family and they had a farm on the Maryland Line in Harford County (Norrisville) known then, Maryland. Mr. White's wife was dead and he and Mrs. Garner married. He needed a wife and mother and she needed a husband and father. Mr. White gave the unborn baby his name. Togother, they decided that all children with the name of Garner would carry the name of White. This was not done in Court. My father would tells us that Sam had alot of family. Here is how it gets dificult, Sam at the age of 41 met my grandmother Anna Maria Mowery (age 20) from Shamokin,Pa., and they got married and had eight children. Anna had alread one child a girl named Bettye Irene Mowery (age 2). Bettye would live with both Sam and Anna as well as her Grandparents Daniel and Elsie Mowery. Sam always loved and treated Bettye as his own. Together they had the following children; Alda Mae White, William Peter White, June Irene White, Russel Arthur White, Charlotte Lorraine White, Melvin James White, Marion Elizabeth White, and Margaret (Peggy) Ann White. Sam traveled around Pa for work and was not always home during the Twenties. Anna did not know that Sam had been married before until a man and woman came to her front door asking for their father just this way. My dad was about three at the time and remembered that this happened at three different times. Anna, not knowning would always say that their father did not live there. Sam was in the other room on the last visit and overheard what was going on and went to the door. This is how Anna discovered that Sam had been married and divorced before. Sam had married and had five children with his first wife. They are as followed; Walter White, Howard White, Raymond White, Beatrice White and Dorothy White. Anna was the same age as Sam's older chilren. Dad would say the his older brothers and sister came to the house all the time and they would treat the younger siblings with great love. My dad would go into the Milatary because of Howard, Walter and Raymond he was very proud of the fact that they all fought in World War I. My dad fought in WWII, and the Korean Conflict. Dad would often tell us how he would go to family affairs with his older siblings and the White's. He tell us that Sam's first wife would be there as well and she would treat him goog as well; but he did not know that she was Sam's first wife for many years. I am a member of Ancestry.com please look at the tree. I have been talking with a young man who says that he is a member of the White family and has simular stories that I have. His info also has the Garner side as well.
That's quite a story! I've no Samuel Ellysworth White in my database. Your Sam came to America quite a bit later then my ancestors. My gr,grandparents left Perry Co., Pa for Illinois, abt 1845. We may have a connection way back there in Ireland, but don't see any other tie possible. (I realize you weren't necessarily expecting a tie.) I'm not an Ancestry member... therefore could not access your tree. Good luck in your searching!
Hi! I descend (several times over in fact!) from a Joseph White, first Sheriff of Anson County, NC, This was shortly before the Revolutionary War.
Joseph was born probably in Pennsylvania or New Castle County, Delaware. He married a Sarah Headley in Pennsylvania before moving south. He was the son of another Joseph White who married Margaret Leeth. (It's possible I have these Josephs backwards--the Whites used the same given names over and over and I can't tell you how confusing it gets!! )
Anyway--the original Joseph was the son of a Moses White, who emigrated from Northern Ireland with his brother Hugh to Bucks Co, PA, in the late 17th century. Hugh White stayed in Pennsylvania altho his descendants later moved--I believe he is the ancestor of Hugh Lawson White. My ancestor Moses arrived first (with brother Hugh) at Nashimany Presbyterian Church in PA with a letter of recommendation from their pastor back home in Ireland. Moses later moved to New Castle, Delaware (we think he may have emigrated as a widower, but he had several children.) Moses's will in Delaware lists his occupation as "schoolmaster". It was probably shortly after his death that my Joseph moved south to Anson County, NC.
After that things get even murkier! I have a very long list of White ancestors, but I would love to verify these records.
Was any of your White's located in Darlington Dist? Mine, John and Lydia White, moved from Darlington Dist to E. Feliciana Parish, La. and my branch moved to Texas some in Jasper and Newton Counties and one brother and sister finally settled in Grimes and Madison counties. Edwin White my Great Great Grandfather is buried in Madisonville, Madison County, Texas , his son Archibald Nickerson White (my great grandfather) born in Bedias, Grimes County, Texas is buried in Eastland, Eastland County, Texas. I appreciate any help. I haven't been able to locate any of John's family, backing into Darlington Dist is as far as I have been able to go.
