Daughter of James and S. A. White. This is the Susan who was married to Dr. Abner Baker in 1844 and who was the cause of Baker killing Daniel Bates which started the infamous Baker/Howard or White/Garrard feud, sometimes known as the Hundred Year War. After Baker was hanged she married Charles A. Redd in 1847.
In 1844 Abner Baker Jr. married Susan White. After the wedding the couple moved in with Daniel Bates who had married Abner's sister Mary and Bates was also a prosperous salt maker. After the wedding Abner began accusing various men in the area of adultery with Susan, including Daniel Bates, her own father and vistors and servants. Her parents, the Whites, tried to get her to move back home. On September 13, 1844 he returned from Knoxville and went directly to Daniel Bates salt works and shot his friend in the back. He was declared insane, and then he fled to Cuba. He was found guilty and on October 3, 1845 he was led to the gallows and hanged.
