The Strange Coincidences of Henderson (Pinkney) WHITE


Recent correspondents have made the WHITE-PA-NC-L family page both interesting and necessary.

While there is no evidence this family came from Northern Ireland and Chester County, Pennsylvania,
they are being included within this narrowly structured topic in order to both include or exclude
necessary information. Researchers who have identified themselves to me and to the Internet
will be listed so that a maximum amount of information may be enjoyed by all.


I did an Ancestry.com/Google search and found many Henderson WHITEs.

Among them, I found two wives named Fannie. Some dates may be several generations
removed but I will list what I know of the family that most folks have written me about.
