Happy 383rd Anniversary, Grandfather and Grandmother White!

383 years ago, 11 June 1637, Nicholas White, the son of Walter and Mary Brown White, married Susanna Humphrey, the daughter of Jonas and Frances Coley Humphrey.  The pair were my 9th great grandparents.   Both were born in England: Nicholas in Rochester, Kent, in 1618; Susanna in Wendover, Bucks, in 1615.   Both were brought to North America by their parents.

There were only two recorded children of this union: Elizabeth (1643) [my 8th great grandmother}, and Nicholas (1647) [my 8th great grandfather]!  Nicholas married Ursula Macomber and they had 4 children including my 7th great grandfather Thomas White.  Elizabeth married Samuel Hall and they were the parents of George Hall, my 7th great grandfather.  George married Lydia Dean and their daughter, Lydia Hall married Thomas Morey.  Thomas married Abigail Crossman and their son, Nathaniel, Sarah Thrasher.   Now it gets messy!  Nathaniel and Sarah’s son, Nathaniel, Jr. [for those trying to keep track, my 5th great grandfather), married Mehitable Morey [my 5th great grandmother], the daughter of Thomas and Lydia Hall Morey.   So, they are my double 5 times great grandparent since they also happen to be 3rd cousins to each other and, my 3rd cousin, 7 times removed!

Nathaniel and Mehitable were the parents of Prudence White who married Morris Jenks.  Together they became one of the earliest settlers of Oakland County, Michigan.

About Pat Shaul

Genealogist / Family Historian; Blog started as a record of my Grandfather's post card collection which ran for 15 months. Then, in June, 2017, I changed over to reporting and commenting on notifications from the ANCESTRY app "We're Related" I then started to provide snippets into ancestor biographies on the dates that were significant anniversaries.
