This link contains mention of a letter from D. Bentley: The correspondence includes a letter from John Bragg of Richmond to John C. Holland, May 25, 1841, discussing Holland's purchase of a machine (see related item in accession #11356, letter from John Bragg, January 1841). Letters dated August 28, 1861 and March 14, 1862 discuss military service. An October 26, 1843 letter from Daniel Bentley to John White announces his own imminent arrival in Fluvanna from Kentucky with hogs for sale. An August 7, 1849 letter to John White from his daughter encourages him not to remarry after the death of his wife. In an April 7, 1861 letter, A. J. Perry inquires about Aunt Sally's estate. A letter dated January 29, 1865 from John H. White, a soldier, to his parents mentions "great talk here about peace." Sent to me by Nancy Denning 12/28/11
Will continue to look for indication that the White family might have moved to KY. with the Bentley clan.John White mentioned above was the father of Pleasant White.
