Project:The Julia White Connections
I was looking back over the 1880 census record on Julia White, my father's father's father's mother. I came across something that I over looked. Julia had a grand daughter named Rebecca White born in MO. Rebecca's parents were from VA.
So that meant...at least one of Julia's children was born in VA. Rebecca was listed as mulatto. I don't know which of Julia's child was the parent of Rebecca.
But as I looked at a slave schedule in 1850, I see a male mulatto who was 20. Perhaps that was Andrew's who was 40 or Julia's who was about 32.... a son...Would Julia have another son? The ages could have been different. The mulatto son could have been younger.
I am not for sure how many children Julia had. I have compiled names from the census records, news clip and other material I have found over the years.
Here is the list of Julia's children:
Ben Whiteborn 1849
Andrew Whiteborn 1849
Spencer Whiteborn 1852 or 1860
Mattie/ Matty White
born 1854 / 56
Josh (Joshua) Whiteborn 1860
Richard / Dick White1866-1946.
He did marry. First to Martha Scott who had twin sons.
He later married Rachel Ann Leftridge / Lephridge who had 18 children.
He married Katherine / Katie Estell who had 9 children.
He did marry First to Melinda Banks who had 3 daughterss
Than re married to Lou ?
She was said to have not married.
I don't know if Mattie and Martha were the same person.
I've come across both Mattie and Martha who were widowed on the census records.
I've found only on Martha on the 1880 Census.
Mattie was listed as having about 5 children on one of the census.
He did marry. First to Jane Fergerson who had 13 or 14 children.
Richard married Mary Belle Brooks who was the widow of David Stapleton.
