Marlene:I apologize for waiting so long to answer. I have done very little on the Whites, but the will of Jonathan White Sr. in Granville Co. in 1772lists his wife as Sarah and children listed are William White, Jonathan White, Burgess White, Philemon White. No daughters are listed, but he likely had daughters. It may be in the estate papers in the NC Archives. William White had a son William White Jr. and Jonathan White Jr.'s will is listed in 1823 but I have not seen that. Philemon White had no children according to his father at the time of Jonathan's death in 1772. According to one record, Burgess had no children, but that is not confirmed. A Henery White signed Jonathan Sr's. will in 1772 but he is not listed in the will. There was a William White who died before Jonathan, but since Jonathan names William as a son in his will this is likely Jonathan's father or brother.Henery White, Burgess White and Jonathan White were qualified as Executors. However, he named his wife Sarah as Executrix along with Thomas Bradford. Since my 3rd great grandfather Edward Adcock was married to Tabitha White in 1780 it is believed she was the daughter of William White Sr. Edward and Tabitha White Adcock named sons William Adcock (the eldest) and a later son was named Jonathan. Most always the first son was named for the mother's father, unless there were dead brothers or uncles with no issue, and about the 3rd and 4th sons were named after grandfathers on either side. Edward's son William Adcock (my great-great grandfather) named a son Burgess Adcock (the second oldest). William White had a son named Valentine White.
In neighboring Warren County just east of Granville Co. at the time and also bordering the state of VA, White marriages were Henry White to Amie Preddy in 1781, DavidWhite to Ginny Lumsdy in 1781, Phillip White to Jemima White in 1773, Mark White to Sarah McDonald in 1784, Philemon White to Phoebe Moore in 1784 (could have been Jonathan's son or son of another as Philemon was a popular name), Terrell White to Susannah Landesford in 1785. I don't have any information on a Frederick White, but it could certainly be there. Betty Adcock Blalock
