I also research the White family in Cabarrus co. NC. Some of my line has a Bedford co. TN connection.
"In Cabarrus Deed Book 15, page 286, we find a power of attorney from Bedford County, Tennessee, appointing John Russell attorney-in-fact for John Rogers, Effy (E) Rogers, David (+) Anderson, and Isabella (x) Anderson, to "receive for us from one Jno Rogers & James Graham or any other person having possession of or liable for the same a Legacy bequeathed to us by Jos. W. Rogers now deceased late of the County of Cabarrus & State of North Carolina." The document is dated November 2, 1844. Interestingly enough, in the same Book at page 282, is a document from Hickman County, Tennessee, appointing Abner Higgins guardian for Joseph H. Higgins, dated September 2, 1844, apparently so that he could receive his bequest from Joseph W. Rogers. David Anderson was on the bond with one Michael Higgins." I found this posting online.
This is of interest because Isabella Anderson is believed to be the daughter of Joseph Rogers and Isabella WHITE Rogers of Cabarrus co. NC. Their son John Rogers also moved to Bedford co. TN.
