Jane White Revolutionary War Patriot is our Jane Brown White; not a Brownlee!!

There is a preposterous majority opinion of the posted trees out there that Jane White, revered local Chester, SC Patriot and wife of William White son of John and Ann Garner White, was not Jane Brown White whose only brother is buried with her mother in the same cemetery as William and Jane and many of her White descendants by marriage to William giving them names of her brother and her half-brothers (and step-father).

Most of the posters do not realize that Jane White is Jane Brown sister only to James Brown and daughter of Elizabeth Wherry Brown. However they do all concede Jane White is buried at Purity Cemetery which is so named from the two Purity Churches built on the same land, with the third built in town for the majority of members who then lived there and not on the farms such as the White of those who originally established this small Presbyterian meeting building.

However we know more on Jane based upon a 19th century Chester historian who told many of the histories of families from the beginning: Daniel Green (Greene) Stinson (Stevenson was his father's birth name as Daniel explains in one of his uncountable tales). Here it is from a book by an outlander who credits DG Stinson with most of the tales in the book about mainly Chester area Revolutionary era women!!

----------------------THis is Google books OCR version
In the centre of Chester District two miles south of Chesterville stands Purity Church on the Rocky Mount Road branching from the main Columbia road which forms as it were the back bone of the district passing through its entire length and separating the waters that flow into the Broad River from the tributaries of the Catawba About a mile below the church at an equal distance from either of these roads may yet be seen the upright trunk of a weeping willow that marks the spot where for more than half a century stood the residence of the subject of this sketch Jane Brown was born in the county of Antrim Ireland in 1758 Her father died when she and her only brother were very young her mother married again in a year or two and in a short time the family emigrated to South Carolina William White who became the husband of Jane was born in the same county in 1753 and removed about the same time The farms on which they lived in youth were adjoining their close neighborhood brought them much

and so on found page after wonderfully fascinating page at

Sooner or later the Brownlee folks will be confronted with facts that the youngest child would not leave her family's name when none of the oldest siblings did and the youngest child would not have been born in Ireland when the parents were born in Scotland and the next eldest sibling to her were born in western South Carolina, but as admitted by the bad data tree posters, their Jane Brown White was born either in Ireland or in County Antrim, Ireland both consistent with the above and inconsistent with their Jane's siblings.

As I have been rebuffed by many of these folks who like the Brownlee lineage, I post this as evidence that all can review and THINK and revisit their weird illogical pasting of two trees together with surnames that almost match, but one has two syllables and the other has one, AND NEVER THE TWAIN SHALL MEET.

I have billionaire cousins who proffer a false ancestry in their bios when detailed and I do not know what causes this phenomena that renders the sane to take illogical indefensible positions, BUT THEY DO!!
