Parents of George W. White, Little Falls, Herkimer, NY 182
Posted by: Kelly Milller (ID *****3841) Date: October 19, 2012 at 18:58:07

I am trying to find documentation of the parents of George W. White. I believe that he was born in 1827 in Little Falls, Herkimer, New York. He passed away in 1902 in Boise, Ada, Idaho.

I have Federal Census Records from 1870, 1880, and 1900. I also have a New York Census Record from 1960. His obituary states that he has 12 children; eight of them are with his second wife, my 2nd great-grandmother. Four of his children at that time were still residing in New York. I do not know who his first wife was, or his children. I am hoping to find them as well as his parents.

Some of my family members have pictures of his father and his common law wife. They say his father was Edwin P. White and his mother was Elizabeth. I cannot find actual records to support this. He was supposed to be from Rhode Island and born about 1800.

These are the records I do have:
