Source: pp. 1059, 1960 & 1961 of Goodspeed's ____ History of Southeast Missouri:
"...They were married in Halifax County, Va., and moved to Davidson County, Tenn., where they resided until 1832, when they moved to Obion County, West Tennessee, and lived there until 1858.They then moved to Dunklin County, Mo., and from there, in 1867, to Stoddard County, where they passed the remainder of their days.Mr. White began as a farmer, and followed this occupation all his life, but also devoted his time for sixty-five years to his ministerial duties, being a minister in the Methodist Church.He was a great revivalist as long as he was able to carry on a meeting... Mr. White was a Whig before the war, and afterward a Republican..."
My information lists William's father as William White, born in Virginia.Does anyone have further information about this family?
