I Weave Together Information


George White
George White, the third child and second son of Thomas and Margaret, did not marry or have children.  Nevertheless, he left us a legacy of information in his obituary, will, and the settlement papers of his estate.  The last document names the living heirs at law at the time of his death in 1918.  This is the only source that I have found with the names of he children of Margaret and Mary White. It was also the first clue that I found that led me to the descendents of Ruth White Housley in California.
