I have just started researching my White family roots back to Stephen White born in Virginia in 1718.He had a son Thomas who was in the revolutionary war.He had sons Jesse, Stephen, and Dudley White who were Indian fighters according to oral family history.Thomas and Stephen, his father, located in Adair Co. KY by the late 1700s near Columbia, KY.I have a record of where the first Stephen is buried. Thomas lived in Monroe Co. KY in 1832.I have his revolutionary war papers as of that year when he applied for a pension.In the first pages I received there was no family information, but I have sent for more. This family claimed descent from Peregrin White who was born on theMayflower in Plymouth Harbor in 1620, December, father: William White,the pilgrim according to family oral history. I haven't gotten back before Stephen, born 1718, from actual records but am trying to find more. They were also related to John White the first governor of VA reportedly. There is lots of genealogical information on the pilgrim Whites down several generations. Have you looked at the Ancestral files at the Latter Day Saint's Church?I am interested in your last name because my great grandmother, Matilda Ellen White Talbott's sister Isabella White married a John Waller Johnston in Adair County KY in the mid 1850s. They moved to Quincy, IL by the mid 1860s.My great grandmother's father was the second Stephen that I mentioned who was born about 1812 roughly and I don't know where he is buried.If you know or find out any more about any of these folks, I would like to hear. My greatgrandmother was married in Quincy IL in 1865 or 67 and then moved toBrowning, IL until she died in 1876. Her brother Thomas White raised my grandfather, Mark White, born 1876. Have you looked at ordering revolutionary war papers from the National Archives for your Jesse?You could get his pension number from the book Abstracts of Rev. War Pension Files.Then you get a form from a library:National Archives Order for C opies of Veteran's Records and order from the archives in Washington, DC. My Thomas's papers were totally amazing! To apply for a pension in 1832, he had to recount in court his actions in the war to prove that he was due a pension. I have a copy of page 3797 of the Abstracts in front of me with Thomas listed, so Jesse would be a page or two before that.Good luck!
