I’m not related to any member of this family.

1940 is the last available census at this time.

1860 - This is not the "correct" George White.
The DOB + birthplace do not match later census years.
Name: George White
Age in 1860: 49
Birth Year: abt 1811
Birthplace: Württemberg
Home in 1860: Little Falls, Herkimer, New York
Gender: Male
Post Office: Little Falls

George White 49
Barbary White 45
John White 19
Mary White 16
James Gage 2
George White 15
Charles White 14
Cristine White 10
William White 9
Margaret White 6

Why is George using the middle initial of "E" and then "W"?

Is there more than one George White in ID.???

Story -
Wm. White "Banty" He was very short -
1859 Came from New York to Boise to Feather River, CA and then returned to New York.

Back out to Boise in 1863. Bride to be Rebecca came out by wagon train with her parents to Boise. She arrived in Boise April 1864. They were married in 1865. They returned to New York and then by way of Independence Missouri came by ox team and wagon out to Camp Harney, OR. It took them 5 months to make the journey. They stayed in Camp Harney for three years due to Indian attacks.

1868-1882 moved to Boise and opened a Door and Sash company. George was a master carpenter and cabinet maker. They raised 5 boys and 3 girls. He had a saw mill at Robie Creek Idaho.

George built the first Episcopal Church in the Territory. His sawmill produced lumber that built the homes and businesses of the day.

1896 they went to Blacks Creek Idaho and gold mined. They called it the Golden Eagle Mine. The mine is in operation still today.

Simeon and Rebecca Watkins, Mary Ellen's parents are buried in Boise Pioneer Cemetery. George and Mary Ellen are buried in Morris Hill Cemetary in Boise Idaho.
