I am wondering if your William White might be a cousin to my John D. White.
Information on family is as follows:
John W White (b. Oct 1789 in Pennsylvania) married Hannah McDaniels (b. 1791 in Virginia) on 9 April 1810 in Butler County, Ohio. They had the following children:
Abigailb. 20 Dec 1811 Infantb. 20 Dec 1811 Thomasb. 01 Dec 1813 John D.b. 20 Jan 1816 Mary Annb. 30 Apr 1818 Robert S.b. 08 Oct 1820 Isaac Goebelb. 05 Sep 1822 Hannah Janeb. 22 Apr 1824 Samuel Simpsonb. 30 June 1831
The first seven children were born in Butler County, Ohio. The last two were born in Decatur County, Indiana.
The family lived in Decatur County for several years before moving on to Delaware County. John D. had a son William S. born in March 1852. John W's middle name was probably William. Do you think your William White may fit into my family somehow. We have been looking for John W's parents for a long time. If your William could be a nephew of John W., it would mean that he probably had a brother move to Decatur County when he did. We think he had a brother living in Butler County, Ohio, but have been unable to confirm any info about the family.
