Memorials of Elder John White, One of the First Settlers of Hartford, Connecticut, and of His Descendants, by Allyn S. Kellogg (Hartford, 1860).
John White came from London aboard the Lyon in 1632. He settled, first, in Cambridge, Massachusetts, then removed to Hartford, Connecticut, in 1636 in the company of Reverend Thomas Hooker. In 1659, as a result of squabling in the church at Hartford following Hooker's death, John White was one of the group that separated to form a new community up river, at Hadley, Massachusetts. He returned to Hartford about 1670, where he died about 1684, having named in his will (1683) four sons and two daughters. The fecundity of the family was such that, by 1860, when this genealogical history was published, there were "heads of households" in the tenth generation.

Mr. Kellogg, compiler of John White's genealogy, was a painstaking researcher. He described his labors in these terms: "The facts contained in this volume have been drawn from the records of the Colonies of Connecticut and Massachusetts, from the records of Probate Courts and the Registries of Deeds, from town and church records, from inscriptions on tombstones, from family records and oral statements, and from the replies to more than six hundred letters of inquiry. Besides the labors of those who have aided his researches, the compiler has visited about forty towns, and has personally examined more than sixty sets of public records." 'Tis a pity that he failed to cite his sources.
