Charles White, the son of William White and Sarah Tyler, married Elizabeth Peak  on 23 March 1831 in Sumner County, Tennessee. Charles and Elizabeth had 7 known children:

  1. William D. White

  2. James White

  3. Sarah A. White

  4. Martha White

  5. Mary Jane “Mollie” White

  6. Charlotte White

  7. John W. White

Charles and Elizabeth were enumerated on the 1850 census in District 18, Sumner County, Tennessee.

Charles and Elizabeth were enumerated on the 1860 census in District 11, Robertson County, Tennessee.

Charles was enumerated without Elizabeth on the 1870 census in District 11, Robertson County, Tennessee.

Charles was enumerated on the 1880 census in Simpson County, Kentucky, Round Pond, page 423. His wife is Louisa and they had a daughter, Nannie, age 7.

Charles and Louisa White were enumerated on the 1900 census in District 11, Robertson County, Tennessee. The head of household was Nannie Luton their daughter who was a widow with 4 children. This census indicates that Louisa was the mother one child and that child was living.

Nannie Lenora White Luton married (2) Elmore Stone and information from her death certificate names her father Charlie White and her mother Jennie Lovelady. Nannie died 19 December 1939 at Goodlettsville, Sumner County, Tennessee and was buried at Pleasant Grove Cemetery. There is a Pleasant Grove Cemetery in Robertson County, Tennessee and Nannie’s first husband James K, Luton was buried there. Her name is not in the Robertson County Cemetery book.

Jane White died 1 September 1925 at Mitchellville, Sumner County, Tennessee and was buried at Mitchellville Cemetery. Her name is not in the Sumner County Cemetery book. Her death certificate gives the information that she was born 2 May 1843 in Simpson County, Kentucky and her father’s name was Lovelady, born in Macon County, Tennessee. Her mother’s name was don’t know. I believe this is Louisa Jane "Jennie” White the widow of Charles White.

The 1850 census of the James M. Lovelady family in Simpson County, Kentucky shows that he had a daughter named L.J. Lovelady who was age 7.

The 1860 census of this family in Simpson County, Kentucky gives her name Jane and she was 16.

In 1870 Louisa Lovelady age 26 was living with her sister Tabitha in Simpson County, Kentucky. The surname of Tabitha was not given but from family knowledge we know that Tabitha Elizabeth Lovelady, the daughter of James M. Lovelady and Eveline Galbrath, married James Claiborne who died before 1870. The adjacent family is Aaron H. Lovelady a brother of Tabitha and Louisa.

Looking at the 1880 census of Charles and Louisa Lovelady White in Simpson County, Kentucky we see that the Aaron Lovelady family was only 4 houses away.

From this information I think that we can state that Louisa Jane Lovelady the daughter of James M. Lovelady and Eveline Galbrath was the second wife of Charles White and they had one daughter, Nannie Lenora White Luton Stone.

I would like to also add that Tabitha Elizabeth Lovelady married (2) Stephen Hale Hendricks and they were the parents of my grandmother Minnie Lou Hendricks. Minnie Lou married John Walton White, the son of William D. White and Mary R. Briggs, and the grandson of Charles White. My gg grandfather Charles White and my g grandfather Stephen Hale Hendricks were married to sisters so they were brothers in law.
