    Notes 
    • A family story has it that they eloped and married in Tennessee, where the age to marry without parental consent was (allegedly) lower. But the actual record of their marriage shows this to be untrue. They were married by the Rev. Henry Patrick in Williamsburg, Whitley County, Kentucky, on 4 Jan 1899. The record includes two laid-in notes handwritten on small pieces of ruled paper. One reads "Jan the 4. 1899. We have no objection to Alfred White and Mary Freeman a mering [sic]. John Freeman, Stase Freeman". The other is substantially illegible, but it's clearly signed "J. N. White".

  • Notes 
    • Called "Romey" by his family, and "Rhody" by his brother Everett.

      [Jeannette (White) Hayden:] "His back was broken & he was paralyzed in a mine cave-in. He lived for 1 1/2 years as a total invalid during which time he was 'saved'...His wife remarried."

      According to the notes of Jeannette (White) Hayden, he was married to a Gertie Ball, but the only Jerome White we find married to a woman of that name appears to have been a different Jerome White, born in 1909, died 1974, son of James Melton White and Parthinia "Bertha" Kidd. The Kentucky death certificate for Gertie R. White, daughter of Curtis and Mary Elizabeth Ball, born 25 Sep 1907, died 15 May 1949 in McCreary County, calls her marital status at death "married", as opposed to "never married," "widowed," or "divorced", and it names the informant as "Jerome White."
