Some people have
generations and generations of their White families, wish we could say
that. Other White families are related to those that came on the
Mayflower, wish we could say that. Most children with the surname of
White, knew their grandfather, wish we could say that.
What we do know is that our White family came
from Randolph, Clay, and Lawrence Counties Arkansas. They moved to Baker
County Oregon between 1934 and 1938, to a place called Snyder Meadows.
After that time we have records, not a lot, but records never the less.
