Henry Andrew White


Linda Brown


Henry Andrew White, my grandfather, left these family records with his daughter Opal Angeline when he died.

He died in Kirkwood Illinois in 1951. Aunt Opal told me there was a town named Lingo in Missouri and her dad was born in New Cambria, Missouri. This is when I started my search in 1986.

I do not know why Henry went to the La Harpe Illinois area in 1895 while most of the family went to Bluff Taney Co. Missouri. Henry's father Benjamin Franklin White died in Taney Co. in 1911 and his death certificate states that his father had been Robert Lewis White and mother had been Nancy J. Stinson.

Frank was born in Howard Co in 1841 and apparently lived their until March of 1847 when his parents sold the land to a Mr. Ray. Both parents dissappear. Frank re emerges in Macon Co in 1860 working for James Lingo, brother to Isaac Smith Lingo, his wife Francis Angelines' father. Her grandfather was Judge S.S. Lingo , and the Lingo Family goes back to Early Colonial Days.

What I do know :
Robert White was administrator for Richard White in Howard Co. in 1825.
Robert and Nancy J. White sold land in Howard Co to Mr. Ray in March 1847.
A notice in the Brunswicker in on probate of Robert White who died in later 1847.
I do not know for a fact that this is the same Robert.
