I am also looking for Florence White, who was raised and lived in Goldsboro, NC, and also was a school teacher in the public school system. Florence taught for a while in Brunswick County where her 1/2 uncle (Marcellus Peyton White, and his family) lived. She taught around the years of 1915 or so, till around the mid 1920's (we think...) and was in the 1930 census in Goldsboro, living with (a boarder) a family with the last name "GRAVIS". She was 38, and single, and was a School Teacher, according to the Goldsboro census. This had to be her!

I don't know very much about Florence's mother or father, only that she was the daughter of a "J.M. White" or either "G.M. White". She also had a sister named "Lizzie". (Prob. Elizabeth..) J.M. (or G.M.) had 2 girls that we know of, Lizzie and Florence. J.M. (or G.M.) also had a full brother named "Nick White" . . who was married, but at the time when he visited Marcellus in Brunswick County, Nick and his wife didn't have any childrehn. They came here to Brunswick county to see their 1/2 brother in the late 1800's, or very early 1900's and they had a picture (photograph)made of the 3 of them. It is a very good photo, of the 3 of them standing side by side. The visit was only for 1 week for Nick and J.M. and then they returned to their families.

Nick left Brunswick County, with his brother and returned back to Goldsboro area, we aren't sure where they lived, even if it WAS Goldsboro. We only know from word of mouth passed down from old old family members that they lived in Lenoir or Wayne County. Thomas White, Nick and J.M.'s father (also Marcellus P. White's father)lived in and married in Johnston County in 1841 to Bedy Hall, and she was 8 months pregnant and only 13 years old~! Thomas White married her there in Aug of 1841, and the next month,on Sept 11, Marcellus was born. 2 more children would follow in the 1840's--Susan in 1845, and Polly in 1847. Bedy and Thomas and the 3 children were all in the 1850 census. But in the 1860 census, Bedy was relocated to Brunswick County, with all 3 children. She had a new last name, KEEL. Thomas Keel, her husband I just found out, died in the Civil War. Bedy would remarry to John Ganey, and after he died, to George A. Williams. She never had any more children. No ideas about where Susan and Polly went to. Marcellus P. White is WELL documented in Brunswick County, and had 10 children.

If you know ANY thing about Florence, or their father J.M {or G.M.}---Nick, PLEASE LET ME KNOW. I have been working for 35 years on this family, and have had nothing but 'dead ends' on Susan and Polly White (Marcellus' 2 sisters)--and also the Goldsboro 2nd family of Thomas White, sons: Nick and J.M., and their wives, and the 2 girls of J.M. and wife, Florence and Lizzie.

Thanks, and please let me know how you fit in to this family. Respectfully yours, Don White
