General Wite Eades
Birth: Aug. 18, 1893
Pike County
Indiana, USA
Death: Jun. 24, 1985
Monticello
Piatt County
Illinois, USA

General was born in Goldwait, a defunct town located just east of present-day Winslow, in Pike Co., IN. General W. & Ita A. (Gosser) Eades first met when Ita was 9 years old and they were married when she was 13. Their first home in Gosser Ridge area of Russell County, KY was a small tin-roof house, not much more than a cabin. After a couple of weeks of marriage, General returned Ita to her mother and said "teach her some things" meaning about intimate relations. Apparently it worked because they had seventeen children over 24 years. He was an Army Private in World War I and got a kick out of being a General in a Private's uniform.

Grandpa used to call me a little cat. I remember sitting in his chair and watching tv with him when I was little.
