Thomas White, Revolutionary War Patriot

Hello to all you White relatives.  Cousin Mark Myers asked, on his last visit from Washington,  if we had a White ancestor who qualified for the National Society Daughters or Sons of the American Revolution.  I said no, but then I thought I’d better check my facts.  Lo and behold, Thomas White had already been proven as a Revolutionary War patriot, so all I had to do was prove our connection.

I did it.  Today I sent two supplemental applications to NSDAR for our Patriot Thomas White.  You got it, two supplementals.  Thomas’ grandsons, William and James’ children Sarah Ellen and James McMaster White married.  It is kosher to submit applications through both lines, so I will have two more pins.  Yeah!!!

This has me started on working on my White lines again.  William White married Hannah Milligan/Milliken.  They had Sarah Ellen White who married James McMaster White.  William and Hannah followed their son, David Milligan White to Pana, Christian Co., IL and there is where they all died and are buried.  I have not researched any of their other children, except Sarah and David.

James and Sarah Ellen remained in Perry County, PA.  This line has been researched rather extensively, but I  can always find more.

Joyce Hughes, whom some of you met at the White Reunion some years ago, passed away.  She had been researching the White line and passed her information along to Marsha Pilger to complete.  I have now been in touch with Marsha again and hope we can get the White History completed in the next couple of years.  Keep those updates coming and I will pass them along.

Anyone interested in joining the DAR or SAR or CAR on this line should contact me for help.  With all the information I have compiled, it may not take too much to get your application completed.

Happy New Year
