Yes Francine, that is the William White family I am trying to trace to my William White born Jan 10, 1755 Fauquier Co [was Prince Wm. Co in 1755- until 1759- but Wm. calls it Fauq. Co in his RW pension application in 1832]
I would like to know the names of the children of William White whose father's will was probated 2-14-1678. There was a William White b ca 1730, d Oct 1804 Fauquier Co VA. married to Mary _____ that I believe is the father of my RW soldier, William White b 1755. The problem is that William did not have a son William in his estate papers..no will. I wonder if William was his first son and already received his share? Or a son from a first marriage? I would not be concerned with this connection except, William White b ca 1730 and my William White b 1755 both named a son Carr White. My William named his Carr Bailey White. There has been a Carr Bailey or the name Bailey in my family to date. William b ca 1730 served in Fr & In War 1761 roster with Carr Bailey Sr. My William served with Carr Bailey Jr. A couple of William's [ b ca 1730], children married into the Carr Bailey family.
All but one listed in 1730 William White's estate were living at Mason Co KY in 1804-1816 and received their share. The dau. no there was Sarah [White] [George] Roach who were living in Prince Wm. Co and George Roach handled the estate. He sold it to Wm. White's  neighbor, William Hunton.
There were many Wm. White Sr and Jr legal entries in Fauquier Co VA concerning those people with same names I have seen in Lancaster Co VA. Neighbors both places. If I could just find children of two more generations of William White whose will was probated 1678, I believe I could connect my line.
I appreciate you help very much. Please keep your eyes open for me. Ginny K.
