Second Generation

11. John W. WHITE9,30 was born about 1823 in Hardin County, Tennessee.7 He died on 20 July 1904 at the age of 81 in Mt. View, Stone County, Arkansas.7

John W. married Mary Ann Wade abt 1847 in Savannah, Hardin Co TN. Some online databases have that they married in Arkansas, but they were still in Tennessee in 1850.

John White, age 26, Mary, age 26, James & George, both age 1 [twins]

1860, Blue Mountain Twp, Izard Co, AR [this part of Izard became Stone Co in 1873]
John White, age 36, b. TN, Mary A. age 30 [she was older], b. NC, James 11, George 11, Lucinda 9, Martha 7, Zilpha 6, Billy 4, and Nancy 2.

Unable to find in 1870. Stone Co was still part of Izard Co. There is an almost ten year gap in ages of the children between Nancy who was 2 in 1860 and Matilda who was 13 in 1880. I feel sure there are missed children. Mary did say she had 13 children, in 1900, and I can account for only nine.

They are on the same page with Zilpha Wade, age 67 and what appears to be adult children and perhaps three grandchildren. If any children were born between Nancy and Matilda, they didn't survive.

John W. WHITE and Mary Ann WADE were married circa 1847. Mary Ann WADE was born in April 1826 in North Carolina.

John W. WHITE and Mary Ann WADE had the following children:



James WHITE was born in 1849 in Hardin County, Tennessee.

James and George appear to have been twins.

1870 Census. Izard Co, AR - when I cannot find the rest of the family.
James White, age 21, b. AR, is living with the family of John and Elizabeth Barham in Blue Mountain Township, working as a laborer.



George WHITE was born in 1849 in Hardin County, Tennessee.



Lucinda J. WHITE was born in 1851 in Hardin County, Tennessee.



Martha C. WHITE was born in 1852 in Tennessee.



Zilpha T. WHITE was born in 1854 in Arkansas.



William T. "Billy" WHITE was born in 1855 in Arkansas.



Nancy E. WHITE was born in 1858 in Arkansas.



Matilda A. WHITE was born in 1867 in Arkansas.



Flora E. WHITE was born in September 1869 in Arkansas.

There was a child Flora E., age 11 in the 1880 census. In 1900, there was an Effie W., daughter, born Sept 1869. I would think this is the same person, although online databases have made it into two different daughters. There was no Effie at all in the family in 1880.
