This from Susan Curtis: "In 1891, Eli Perry White testified on a pension aplication that he attended Beriah White's wedding to Sara Drake in Henry Co., MO on Feb 7. 1867.
(Note: Beriah was original owner of land where the White Cemetery, Henry Co., is located. He sold land to Joel Bailey, believed to be the Joel Bailey who married Mary S. White in Henry Co MO in 1857.)"

Information re daughter Mary F. (White) Newell:

---Georgia Dec 1885-
---Etta F. Sep 2 1888-Feb 15 1969/Bates MO, m: Arthur Lewis, ch Chester A., Tom J., Jessie L., Mary E., Darlene L.

A.G. Newell remarried to Iola Frost Oct 1891, it would appear Mary died prior to that date, perhaps of complications with birth of Etta.
