He moved his family from Guilford Co. NC just after the Battle of Guilford in the last year of the Revolution in 1782. They were among the first families arriving in Washington Co, Tennessee settling on the Fall Branch of Horse Creek.

He served Washington Co. as a Justice of the Peace and a tax collector, along with tilling his farm and raising his family of 11 children. See BIBLE RECORDS

As evidenced by his will, he also was a slaveholder. His will may also be viewed on the Washington Co. Tenn US Gen Web project.

About 1818 he became ill with the dropsy and gravel, before his death on 18 Aug 1819. He was laid to rest on his farm in the White family cemetery where his memorial still lies, along with many of his children and descendants.
