    *****

    From Ancestry of Elizabeth Louise White by Steven C. Perkins:

    He was probably born 1750-55, as Nancy Jonckheere states that in 1777 he sold land inherited from his father, Richard. Was this the 330 acres in Bute County that he was devised? At that time he was stated to be a planter from Craven County. CHECK

    He was probably born in Warren County, N.C., and about 1798 he came to the portion of Knox that is now Whitley County. He died between June and October 1829, based upon his appearance in Whitley County Court as a Commissioner in June and an Order in October that his son, Dempsey, return court records. CHECK whitley order book 1 for his signature. He is probably in an unmarked grave at Redbird; there is a marker for a John White, but the date of death appears to be 1896.

    A John White was a taxpayer in Warren County, North Carolina in 1784. North Carolina Taxpayers, supra, v.2, p.217. A John White was a purchaser at an estate sale in Franklin County, N.C., confirmed in June of 1796, Bradley, Will Book B of Franklin County, North Carolina 1784-1804, 929.375654 qB811b 1988, p.16 and at a sale on 10 January 1799, p.38.

    A John White is on the Knox tax rolls for 1804, with 300 acres of 2d class land on the Cumberland, 2 horses and 6 slaves. A John White appears in the 1810 and 1820 Knox County censuses, and in Lincoln County before that; a John White is on an 8/3/1790 Lincoln tax list. John White and John White, Sr. appear on an 1816 Knox County tax list. A John White appears on a 1788 Fayette County tax list, as do two Williams and a James. Some Pre-1800 Kentucky Tax Lists, supra, p.11. CHECK

    On 28 September 1826 he granted Demcey (sic) White (a Whitley County resident) a Power of Attorney to deal with legacies he might be entitled to from the estates of his father, Richard White, or his mother, Elizabeth, in Franklin County, North Carolina. Whitley County Deed Book 1, p.145-6. Mark White was stated to be the Executor of Richard and Sherrod Celly/Kinney the administrator of Elizabeth. Decker (p. 305) says that Knox County Revolutionary War Veterans included John White of Virginia, and says that he is thought to have settled in Knox in about 1804; if so, that would not [may not] be our John.

    *****

    The "Demcey" White mentioned above is almost certainly the Dempsey White who is recorded in Collins's History of Kentucky as a member of the Kentucky House of Representatives for Whitley County in 1833, 1835, 1838, and 1839; he was a son of this John White, and his daughter Nancy White (1838-1928) was the second wife of Patrick's greatX3-grandfather William Henderson Parker (1824-1898).

  1. 8.  Richard White (son of Richard White); died Aft 17 Jul 1775, Bute, North Carolina.

    Notes:

    From Ancestry of Elizabeth Louise White by Steven C. Perkins:

    RICHARD WHITE, JR. A resident of North Carolina, his will was recorded in Warren/Bute Will Book 2 at 73, dated 17 July 1775. (Olds, An Abstract of North Carolina Wills, supra, p.316.)

    He acquired land on Cedar Creek by Deed in Warren Deed Book 5, at 167, in January of 1775. In a deed from John Wait (sic), John recites that his father, Richard White, acquired the land by grant from the Earl of Granville County in November of 1760 (This is Richard White, Jr. as Richard White, Sr. was dead by 1757). See The Granville District of North Carolina, supra, v.2, p.159. None of this narrows down his birthdate much. The most that can be said is that he obviously was born well before 1754, when his father named him in his Will. A Richard White was listed as a taxpayer in Bute County in 1771. (North Carolina Taxpayers, 929.3756 R233, v.1, p.216.)

    The will names his wife as Elizabeth and his children as John, Mark, Harrison, Richard, Nicholas, Mary, Sarah, Elizabeth, Drusilla and Nancy. It also recites that he died owning land on Buffaloe Creek, on Burnt Coat, on Franko Creek and between Franko and Cedar Creeks. Some other useful information is found in Bradley, Will Book C of Franklin County, North Carolina 1804-1812, supra, p.1. There it is recited that White's Negroes were willed to his wife, Elizabeth, and that she was dividing most of them among her daughters. It was stated that one of four lots was drawn by Thomas Hardin, husband of Salley, and that Elizabeth, Drucilla (sic) and Nancy White drew the other three. The date of the drawing is stated to have been 24 February 1801; however, the recording of the event was at the March 1804 term of Court. Apparently, only Sarah (Salley) was married. Perhaps the order of the draw indicates seniority. It would appear that Elizabeth was still alive in 1804. However, she may have been alive much closer to 1826. Material from Nancy Jonckheere indicates that the division, pursuant to an award by Commissioners, was at the September term in 1826; that Sarah Harding, Steven Sparks and Elizabeth, his wife, Drucilla White and Crofford Kearney and Nancy, his wife, took at that time. This seems to be a second effort to divide the slaves, this time not by lot or agreement, but by court order. Also note the Power of Attorney John gave in 1826 to settle his mother's estate. These actions would indicate a possible residence in Franklin County, North Carolina.
