Harriette Malinda Dowd b. 7 July 1825, MA married Abram C. White b. 1822 OH, son of Thomas B. White b. 6 Mar 1787 and Prudence Craft b. 9 Nov 1789. Probably married in Ohio abt 1844. Their children were Edmund White b 1845, Robert White b 1848, Hartley Ensign White b. 1853 d. Omaha. Neb., George N. White b. 1855, and "Hattie" Harriet White b. 1846.

Other children of Thomas B. White were William W. White b.NY (ancestor of contributor), Charles C. White b.NY, Sara Jane White, Analiza White, Mary Ann White and John F. White. Birth dates available.

Thomas A. visited Hartley E. on his way to California. A descendant remembers his grandfather telling of the visit, remembering Thomas A. wearing a Civil War uniform. Sarah, Thomas' wife, supposedly died and is buried here. This remains a question to be cleared up. Thomas A. went on to California, however the question of whereabouts of his death remains uclear also. He may have returned to Michigan. Hartley Ensign is interred at Forest Lawn Cem.-Omaha.

Harriette Malinda Dowd and Abram C. White apparently divorced or separated. Abram is found with his father Thomas, 1870 Census in Ionia, Mich. With them is "housekeeper" Sarah Fisher. The 1880 Census shows Abram and Sarah White in Emmet Co., MI. No record of either death. Did they go to California en mass? Hartley George White b. 1861 Centreville, St.Joseph. MI m., is the only son of Thomas A. to stay in Michigan. His picture, along with his wife Ida Irene Gaumer, as early founders, hangs in the Church in Horton Bay, Charlevoix Co., MI Other sons of Thomas A. are William O. White, Bertrand White, Clarence E. White, and Andrew White who migrated to California. Hartley George White was my great-grandfather.

Harriette Malinda Dowd White found in June 1880, Fitchfield, Heron, OH head of house, with son George N, age 25, daughter or daughter in law age 17 with 1 month old girl,Nellie M., born in May. submitted Dec 09, G.M. White Reinhardt, [contact link]
Just discovered our connection to Peregrine White of Mayflower thanks to help from the lovely ladies at the Wesfield Athenaeum in the Pioneer Valley of western Massachusetts. Adbner White was fifth generation after Peregrine. One of his sons, James, fathered James Monroe White, father of James & Helen Hutchinson White, brother & sister.

If anyone knows any more about this James White, I'd appreciate knowing. Civil War rosters name two James Whites & I can't be sure which one is Helen's brother. One, a deserter, the other a shoemaker!
