In Reply to: Rev. George Granberry, d. 1855, Harris C by Marion of 438


Rev George Granberry signed an obituary of my Robert White Sr. (1743-1843). Robt died in Union Co SC.

Robt's son Benjamin Franklin White, author of the Sacred Harp song book, a Baptist Missionary, lived in Hamilton Harris Co, at the time of his father's death, and I am sure had Rev G Granberry, do the obiturary, that was published in the George Newspapers.

My curiosity is about the Rev. would appreciate any information on his person.

The ending of the Obit said 'FROM A FRIEND'. Robt Sr was a Baptist 76 yrs, taught his children the Sacred Harp music. Lived in NC? before moving to Union SC, I wonder if Rev Geo & Robt were old friends from NC or SC?, I will check Pitt Co for Robt White, as we only know he was born near the Roanoke River and Lived along the TAR River NC a time.

Benjamin F White was county clerk and also Mayor of Hamilton Harris in 1865. He was a Major in the Civil War, though to old to fight, trained several companies of soldiers. BF White moved to Hamilton Harris Co 1842, also a fifer in the War of 1812 from 12 to 14 yrs old.

He started the first newspapge in that county also, I just know Rev George and Ben knew each other...

Appreciate any information,
Thank You,
Mike White
