|Birth: ||Jul. 8, 1828|
|Death: ||Jun. 30, 1906|
According to her father's Bible, Elizabeth was born on the 8th of July in 1828. Most census records place her birth in Illinois. Her parents Jonathan Stout and Margaret Hanna were enumerated in Vermilion County, Illinois, with several other Floyd County, Kentucky, families in 1830.
(In the 1900 census, Elizabeth's birth is given March 1828 in Kentucky, but discrepancies between the census and other records are certainly not unusual.)
Elizabeth was married by her father, a justice of the peace, to Bryant Willis Whyte in Washington County, Arkansas, on 19 June 1854. (In addition to the county record, her father testified to this date in her pension application. However, his Bible records the date as 28 July.)
Elizabeth and Bryant had four children before he left to serve the Union side in the Civil War: Jonathan Stout (1855), Lewis Marion (1857), Margaret Ellen (1858), and James C. (1861).
In May 1862, Bryant joined the war, and by the end of the year Elizabeth was a widow.
Elizabeth's pension file is approximately 33 pages long and records the names and birth dates of her children as well as testimony from her father and also her sisters Celia and Keziah, who attended the births of her children. The application also mentions that Elizabeth's family was briefly in Tennessee when she was about nine years old (1837).
Although her marker seems to no longer be in White House Cemetery, the following obituary records the burial (from "Obituaries of Washington County, Arkansas" by Barbara Pickering Easley, volume 3, page 205):
"(from Arnett) Aunt Elizabeth White died at the home of her son, James White, Saturday evening and was buried at the White House cemetery Sunday evening. (Washington County Review 7/5/06)"
