The Honorable Judge Martin Mullins White, born and eduated in Lampasas, TX, admitted to the UT Bar in 1898 and the same year appointed Lampasas Cty. Attorney and remained in this post for two terms.
In 1899 in Kyle, TX he married Reguina Jean "Jean" (Carpenter), daughter of Dr. John Clayton Carpenter and Margaret Louise (Rector) of Kyle, TX. In 1900 Martin commissioned the Casbeer family, well known masons in the Lampasas area, to build a two-storey, natural stone homestead on a high, limestone hill northeast of downtown Lampasas. Martin and his family moved into their new home in 1908, residing there until 1916 when Martin was appointed District Attorney and they moved to Belton, Bell Cty., TX.
