Checked Five Volumes of Cemetery Records

4 Volumes of Obituaries, Obsequies and Notices of Death

which covers the years as


1890-1899, Pg. 9
Tuesday, 25 Mar 1890

The saddest news this week is the death of four of our citizens, Zimri Bennett; Charley Wood; Wm. White; and
John Pittman. Who can say this is your William White.

Checked Indiana Wills Phase 2 1850-1880
By Charles M. Franklin 1987
Nothing listed for William White in Sullivan County, Indiana.

Checked Death Records 1882-1920 Vanderburgh county, Indiana
in case William or Martha ended up in the state hospital, again found nothing.

I looked at the census records 1860-1880 for William and Martha to get an idea for whom I was searching. Noticed
they had 3 children listed on 1860 census the only child I was able to identify in Sulivan county records was Verilla who first married John Wilkins and had 2 daughters and second marriage to Joseph C. Blair. I'm sure you already have her data, if not, let me know I will send it. By 1900 census Verilla was living in Clay county, Indiana with one of her daughters.

I'm wondering if William and Martha might have moved out of county with one of the sons, as it's like they fell off the face of the earth after 1880 census.

Have you found William and Martha on 1850 census?
Do you know what happened to the their sons?
