Faye,

Good to hear from you, I have not proven Wm or Robert of Houston Co are related. There were several Wm White's &
Wm H I think, was found in the TAx rcds almost the same
years as our Stephen and beyond, seemed he was wealthy,
had much land, at least up to the Civil War.

Tilman B is most certainly the Son of Stephen and Nancy,
and he had a son Tilman, Robt Sr, had a son Tilman who
(via a 1886 letter) died in GA shortly after his arrival,
Tilman was used by his Sister Mary in GA, out of respect
I assume.

Wonder if this Wm & Robt once lived in Loundes Co AL, that
is where Stephen and family lived prior to Jan 1836, when
Stephen arrived in Houston Co.

Robert Sr, 1743-1843, I am almost certain now, lived in
Old Brunswick Co VA on the border with NC near the Roanoke
River, the South EAst most of VA in 1743, encompassing
a very large area now many other counties.

I suspect he lived near his father in law, Wm Whitehead,
in Caswell Co NC, border with VA, at least from 1781 to 1787
then moved possibly along the Tar river for a growing season
before decending into the Old 96th dist SC, later Union Co
SC, I am equally certain he may have been in SC earlier next
door in Laurens Co 1788, possibly to set up homestead for
his Father in law Wm Whitehead, slidding over to the Union
Co side (old 96th), that same year 1788 onto land he bought
himself.

The NC connections are not known to us at this time, I am
hopeful someday we can put this connection together. We
will need a bit of luck...

Was on vacation, just back, reason it took so long for my
reply.

Appreciate,
Mike White
