“People who take no pride in noble achievements of
their remote ancestors will never achieve anything; nor
are they to be remembered by their descendants.”

“Go, call thy sons; instruct them what a debt they owe
their ancestors; and make them swear to pay it by
transmitting down entire those sacred rights to which
they themselves were born.”

“It was for us they strove.
We are the heirs
Of all their agony and sweat
And tears
And willing or ungrateful,
Each one shares
In the vast legacy of
Toilsome years.”

DEDICATION

As an affectionate tribute to our children and grandchildren, and to the youth of present and future generations, who are descendants of John White and Ann Garner White, the authors have inscribed this unpretentious little volume. It is our fond hope that this brief historical sketch may be instrumental in bringing its readers into a closer acquaintance with the names of our honored ancestors.

Many of those, whose names are found on the pages of this humble little sketch of the White Family Connection, have filled positions of honor and responsibility. These include prominent educators, attorneys, ministers, missionaries, physicians, surgeons, brokers, farmers and businessmen of all kinds. In addition to these, there could be added a long list of others too numerous to mention here in our limited space.

Let all, who may chance to browse through this long list of such names, endeavor to show themselves worthy of being descendants of such honored ancestors as John and Ann Garner White.

ORIGINAL PREFACE

This modest little volume contains a fund of information, heretofore unpublished, concerning John White and Ann Garner White and their descendants. It has been a pleasure as well as privilege to preserve in written form the history of our forefathers and perpetuate their memories for the sake of the youth of the present and of the future.

Our attempt at putting into written form certain information concerning the White Family has been made at the earnest request of Rev. B. Dale White, who, in company with his wife, Janet Wallace Ballantyne White, set sail from New York City on January 9, 1923 to take up work as a missionary in Chichawatni, Punjab, India under the auspices of the Board of Foreign Mission of the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Synod of the South.

This historical sketch makes no pretense at being a complete record of the descendants of John White and Ann Garner White. Our purpose has been to give merely the bare facts without any attempt at waxing eloquent in the presentation of those facts. However, we have spared neither time nor labor nor expense in an honest effort toward making this history of the White Family as complete as possible. Many facts have been recorded through memory, while the others have been accumulated through laborious research and through the assistance of friends and relatives interested in our efforts.

This Family History will possibly be disappointing to some of its readers because of its simplicity, brevity and incompleteness. However it should be kept in mind that the members of the White Family are scattered to the four winds; from South Carolina to California, and from Texas to New York. Some have been lost sight of altogether. Others have passed away, and no record of them is available. We have been able to secure only a very small amount of material in written form, and some that was often incomplete. To the average person, history, and especially family history, is dry as dust, and very few people take an active interest in such matters until it is too late to secure the facts as desired.

A large part of the information herein accumulated was recorded in writing while my brother and co-laborer, Dr. G. B. White, was in failing health, and just about one year before his death. Therefore after making allowance for the many difficulties encountered, we are very grateful and happy to have been able to collect and put into more or less permanent form so much reliable information.

We wish to express our hearty thanks and gratitude to each and every one who has in any way assisted us in this labor of love and made possible the collection and compilation of so much valuable material.

Matthew Elder White

PLAN OF THE WORK

In order that this family history might be more easily read and understood and in order that desired information be secured with least effort, the material in hand has been arranged according to generations. A chapter is devoted to each generation; a section to each family; and a paragraph to each individual. Following each name there is an accompanying number signifying the generation to which that name belongs. For example, William, 3 means William of the third generation. The history of the male ancestors has been traced out as far as possible. The record of the female ancestors has been traced usually only ore or two steps and then left. Our purposes has been to trace primarily the “ WHITE” name.

In back of the book will be found an index of names and numerical references to pages, sections and paragraphs, by means of which one may in a moment’s time locate any desired name of individual or family.

Also there is to be found inserted on back cover of book a family tree by means of which one may easily locate the name of any desired person and trace immediately the connection between that and any other person or family.

There has been a tremendous amount of work connected with the arranging, compiling and editing of so great an amount of material as has been presented to me. However, the work has been both pleasant and profitable and interesting to every descendant of our common ancestors, John White and Ann Garner White.

In order that each individual reader may make necessary corrections and insert additional material there have been added blank pages at the end of each chapter of the book. I shall appreciate your most sympathetic consideration of the efforts which have been put forth to make this little book helpful to its readers. Without doubt there will be found a number of errors and omissions and therefore I beg of you the privilege of receiving from you any and all help possible toward correcting and perfecting the record of the White Family. Kindly give me the benefit of your help in this matter.

(Rev.) B. DALE WHITE, Chester, S.C.

CHAPTER 1

Historical Sketch of First Generation of White Family

Among those passengers, who that day set foot on Carolina soil, were John White and his wife, Ann Garner White, formerly of County Antrim, Ireland. Nothing is known definitely of the exact place from which they came, but tradition has it that they came from Broughshane, or some place nearby. Dr. G. B. White of Chester, South Carolina, while visiting in Ireland during the year 1903, found a number of tombstones in the cemetery at Broughshane bearing the family name of White, but he was not able to trace authentically any direct connection between those Whites and John and Ann White.

John and Ann White were the progenitors of that large connection of Whites, who, since the earliest settlement of what is now Chester County, South Carolina, have lived in the neighborhood of Old Purity Presbyterian Church and cemetery, about two and a half miles south-east of the town of Chester on the Chester-Great Falls highway.

From the ship's passenger list and other sources we get the following information concerning John White and his family:

Name child number generation age year born
John White   1 47 1720
Ann Garner White   1 40 1727
William White 1 2 14 1753
Margaret White 2 2 11 1756
Helen White 3 2 9 1758
Isabel White 4 2 7 1760
Jannet White 5 2 5 1762
Victoria White 6 2 3 1764

John White and his family settled about three miles south-east of

HISTORY OF THE WHITE FAMILY

Chester on the Chester-Great Falls highway, one third mile west of the highway, and two hundred yards north of a large spring which is still in use on J. G. L. White's farm.

There is no accurate information available concerning the time of John White's death and place of burial. However through Daniel Stinson, a historian, who accumulated considerable knowledge concerning early events, which took place in Chester County, we learn that, according to tradition, John White was killed near what was then Youngsville, but now called Woodward in Fairfield County, S. C., in a skirmish with Cherokee Indians. Since that was before the day of vehicles, his friends were not able to bring his body home to Chester County for burial, and so his remains were buried in the old Concord cemetery, which is near what was then Youngsville, but now Woodward. The Cherokee Indians frequently came across the North Carolina border, and made raids on the Catawba Indians in the vicinity of Chester, S. C. During at least some of these encounters, the white settlers joined forces with the Indians of the Catawba tribe, and as a result of such cooperation on the part of the settlers, the Indians became fast friends of their white neighbors. It is interesting to note just here that a remnant of the Catawba Indians still exists near Rock Hill, S. C., where the South Carolina government has set apart a reservation for these Indians, and given them permission to draw a pension from the state.

Ann Garner White died January 25, l8l8, in the ninety-third year of her age and was buried in Old Purity cemetery, where a head stone marks her grave. During the year 1930, some of the descendants of John White had a marker erected to his memory, alongside the marker of his wife, Ann Garner White. The time of his death and place of his burial is altogether unknown.

Doubtless it will be of interest to some to know that the land on which John and Ann White settled was a grant from King George the Third of England, and this land during all these years has never been owned by anyone except members of the White Family. Part of the old grant of land is now owned by J. G. L. White, and the remainder is in the possession of M. E. White.

CHAPTER 3

Historical Sketch of Third Generation of White Family

Section 1. Record of the Family of William, 2; John, 1


Par. 1. John White, 3 (s/o William, 2; John 1) was born February 22, 1779, in Chester County, S. C. On May 26, 1812 he was married to Margaret Kennedy, who had been born in the month of August, 1782. They settled near what was known as "Green Pond" on the farm now owned by the estate of James and Fred Walker, deceased.

John was a soldier in the War of 1812. He served as a ruling elder first in Old Purity Church, and later in Pleasant Grove Church. His death occured January 10, 1839, and his remains were buried in 0ld Purity Cemetery.

He had had strong convictions against slavery during his life time, and his death bed request was that his wife and children leave the South and go West. In accordance with this request, they after his death, moved to Bloomington, Indiana, where they stayed a year. There a young son was buried. The next year the family moved to Marissa, Illinois, and settled. Their descendants are found there in great numbers now.

Margaret died in Marissa September 8, 1858 and was buried in Marissa Cemetery.

To John and Margaret the following children were born:
(1) William White, 4. Born April 15, 1813.
