Re- Keziah White
Can you post a copy of the corrected stone to her memorial ?

RE: Re-John White- 81931737
Claire, If you have a photo of the original old stone,not the one that was fixed,please add it to John & Keziah's memorial pages. I posted clips of both "History" books,the 1880 & 1917 publications.
In my opinion,if John was one of my direct line relative's,I might be more inclined to think the 1880 book was more accurate then the 1917 book. But since those books were written by subscription,meaning the people listed in them paid a fee to the authors to have their families written in the books,so depending on who paid the money,their opinion would take precedence,whether the information is accurate or not. The books themselves really can't be used as a primary source...especially since each book contradicts the other book where it pertains to John's birth date. Does everyone in the current White family,who is actively researching the family agree on the changed birth year? If everyone or at least the majority of those folks agree with each other?
If they do,I'll change the dates but I will also note the original dates seen on the 1st original stone and the 1st newer stone...because the books contradict each other and the books are,to my knowledge,the only things that give any dates. There are many White family researchers out there and they all will decide,hopefully,on what they want to accept as fact or take an educated guess at. We've worked together in the past and I think we can come to some way to reflect what is known about these 2 pioneers here in Punxsutawney. I just wish that there were more records to look at,which is a drawback to many of the really old burials all over. Email me if you want to talk some more on this. Marianne

Re-John White- 81931737
Hi Claire,
Can you please provide a source citation for John's birth date ?? I see by the new photo you added yesterday to his memorial,someone fixed/changed his birth date on the stone to 1773 from the original date of 1783. If a valid source citation is provided,I'll be more than happy to change the date on his memorial. Thank you for any light you can shed on this situation.

Guy E. White
I wouldn't know about his middle name. I just took the picture. Someone else must have given me the name so I changed the E. to Enos. Its not anyone I know so you will have to do your own research.

RE: Mildred Tyger
Hi Claire,
I think it would be wise to hold off adding the SSDI information you found,until more collaborating data is found for Mildred.
