Hello Marilyn;
I have searched the cemeteries in and around Leonidas, and can find no stones for Royal White or for Sarah Wonsey White.

I did however run across many, deeds in the land records, where Royal sold his land to his children, or at least I am assuming they were his children. These deeds were all dated around April 29, 1864. I did not make copies of these documents. But if you would like I can return to the court house, and copy them for you. There is a charge of $3.00 per page however.

I also tried to find the death certificate for Sarah White, but could not find it at the county.

I even searched the cemetery where Sarah's brother Henry is buried and still did not find her grave.

I believe the White and Perkins children moved farther west, after the death of Royal.

How are you related to this family?
