Andrew White was one of the early settlers of Danby, Vermont, coming thither from Nine Partners and settling at the borough where the Widow Bradley lately lived. Late in life he removed to Peru, New York. He married Amy Palmer. Children: Edward, mentioned below; Peter, William, Nehemiah, Reuben (born about 1752, died at Collins, N.Y. aged seventy-two; married Deborah Wilbur, of Danbury)., Oliver, Palmer, Benjamin, Elizabeth, Rachel, Catherine and Mary.
(II) Edward, son of Andrew White, was born 1740-50 at Nine Partners, perhaps; married Annie _____; a minister of the Society of Friends. They settled in Peru, New York.
(III) Jacob, son of Edward White, was born at Danby, Feb. 18, 1788, died at Peru, Aug. 22, 1844. He married Sallie Chandler, born at Keene, New Hampshire, 1791, died Nov. 24, 1869, in Chateaugay, New York (see Chandler VI).
(IV) Jehiel B., son of Jacob White, was born at Peru, Oct. 30, 1826, died Sept. 13, 1908; married Abigail Arnold, born at Schuyer Falls, New York, May 8, 1838, died Oct. 17, 1899, daughter of Stuckley and Lavinia (Lobdell) Arnold. Their daughter, Mary L. White, married April 25. 1877, Hiram Everest Heyworth (see Heyworth, III).
The White family of New England was both distinguished and numerous. William White came in the "Mayflower" with his wife Anna or Susanna Fuller, whom he married in Leyden, and a son Resolved. He was one of the leaders of the Pilgrim Company, and a man of education. His name appears as the sixth signer of the historic "Compact." There is still preserved by his descendants the ancient "Breeches Bible" printed in London in 1588; so called from the covering of fig leaves made by Eve after "the fall," being printed "breeches" instead of "apron."
Another William White was an early settler of Ipswich in 1653; said to have been born in county Norfolk, England, in 1610. There were many of the name among the early settlers, and being a prolific family soon spread to all of the New England colonies.
The branch now resides in Lewis county, New York, of whom we write, descend from the Connecticut family. The first of his line to settle in New York state was Benjamin, of Litchfield, Conn. He made settlement at Fairfield, Herkimer county, N.Y., where he died.
He married Sally Franklin, in Conn., and had issue.
(II) Harlow, son of Benjamin and Sally (Franklin) White, born in Litchfield, Conn. He was two years of age when his parents removed to Herkimer county, N.Y. He had a common school education and by occupation was a farmer. He was a Whig in politics until the formation of the Republican party, when he joined with that organization. He was a lifelong Methodist; his membership in that church covering a period of forty-five years.
In 1832 he removed to Leyden, Lewis county, N.Y. He married, Jan. 12, 1832, Levina, born in Leyden, N.Y., Aug. 15, 1812, daughter of Parsons and Lois (Whitmore) Talcott. Parsons Talcott was born in Conn., 1780; killed by a falling ree in Lewis county, N.Y., 1849.
(III) Parsons E., son of Harlow and Lavina (Talcott) White, was born in Leyden, N.Y., April 7, 1834. He received a good common school education in his youth, which was but the foundation for years of after study, wide reading and close observations. He remained upon the home farm unil 1868, when he purchased what is now  known as the "Pleasant Valley" farm, which he cultivated during his active years of labor. He has had other and many outside interests, the character of which display his vigor and versatility. In 1870 he was chosen a director of the Lewis County Agricultural Society, and still holds that office.. For nearly thirty years he hasa been general superintendent, and so efficient a manager is he that his term of office is continued year by year. When the order, Patrons of Husbandry, was formed in Lewis county, he became the first master of Denmark Grange, No. 535, and in December, 1909, resigned the office of deputy for Lewis county which he had held for ninteen years. The success of this order in Lewis county may be largely attributed to his earnest work and faithful effort as county deputy. In 1870 he became correspondent of The Lowville Journal and Republican, sending in each week the happenings of his neighborhood, with his own pungent criticism; adding from time to time well-written articles on current topics. His record as a correspondent is a most remarkable one. He is still on the staff of that paper, and in all the years from 1870 his copy failed to arrive in the office for publication but five times. For twelve years he was special correspondent for the Boston American Cultivator, and contributed to the columns of that periodical many times articles of merit and interest.
Politically he is a thoroughly dependable Republican. He never has faltered in his allegiance to his party, and is one of the "wheel horses" of the organization in the county. Through his connection with the Grange, the Agricultural Society, and his long residence in the county he is universally known and most highly esteemed.
