First Generation

1. William B.1 White (#14092) was born in Tn 3 Apr 1819. William died 3 Apr 1856 in Lamar Co., Al, at 37 years of age. His body was interred in Gibbs-indian Cem., Beaverton, Lamar Co., Al.

He married Permelia G. Unknown. (Permelia G. Unknown is #14091.) Permelia was born in Al 26 Dec 1824. Permelia died 24 Jul 1896 in Lamar Co., Al, at 71 years of age. Her body was interred in Mt. Hebron Cem., Beaverton, Lamar Co., Al. At 31 years of age Permelia became the mother of William Roselette 'Rose' White in Al, 28 Jan 1856. At 39 years of age Permelia became the mother of Aletha Bell White in Al, 11 Apr 1864.

At 36 years of age William became the father of William Roselette 'Rose' White in Al, 28 Jan 1856. At 45 years of age William became the father of Aletha Bell White in Al, 11 Apr 1864. In an interview with Mr. Floyd White, son of Jim White, of Lamar County, AL (lives near Crews or Beaverton) on 6 Oct 1986, he said that the following ladies were all sisters or half-sisters; that they were all White's. He said Aletha Bell Wh ite and Roselette were half-sisters.

1) Eliza (b. 1842/43) married William Robison. 2) Sarah "Sally M. White Jan. 12, 1945 - June 15, 1899" Birth and death dates taken from tombstone inscription in Mt. Hebron Cemetery near Crews. In a letter written by Bertie Mae Franks dated Jan 28, 1980, she wrote that Cora Carruth White, Floyd's wife, said the seven White sisters were Manerva, Elvera, Willie, Letha, Archie, Lizzie, Sarah." 3) Minerva (b. 1846/47) married John A. Mixon (Earlie Hughes). 4) Elvira (b. 1850/51) married an Armstrong and went to Texas. (Earlie doesn't remember a girl named Elvira, but Betty Robison Webb said she was a sister.) 5) Archie (F) was Floyd's grandmother. She never married, but had Frank and Jim. Mr. Floyd White lived in the big white house past Bee Jane's. She must be the Matilda, age 6, listed on the 1860 census. Frank and Jim are on the 1910 censu s of Lamar County, ED 60, page 49 with wives and children. 6) Rosalette (b. 1855/56) married John A. Isbell. 7) Willie never married, but had Bill White who married Ada Robison, a daughter of Henry Robison, and Emma who married John Carruth. There is a tombstone in Mt. Hebron for Willie W. White, born 19 Nov. 1853 - died 20 Mar 1937. 8) Aletha (b. 1861/61) was Yancy's wife; she mar #2 a Pernell; #3 her last husband was a Newman who was a preacher from Walker Co. Everyone agrees there were seven White sisters, so two of these names must belong to one sister. In 1880 there is a Wilmouth listed just a year younger than Sallie M. What was Archie's real name?

Betty Robison Webb said (28 Feb. 1997) that all of the White girls were whole sisters except Aletha, the youngest, who was a half-sister. Her father was not a White, but she went by White. It appears from the 1850 census above that Willia m B. White was Permelia's first and probably only husband. On 1900 Lamar, AL, page 9, Alletha Isbell is living in the household of Wilson Pernell. Her occupation is listed as cook. Her two children, John A. and Permelia, are with her. She is listed as a widow. I thought she and Yancy divorced an d he was living in AR?
