Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Memphis, TN, raised in Jackson, MS, and moved to Dallas in 1967.

My father was Jesse Thomas White.

My mother was Clara Vanderberg White .

You are invited to visit their memorials to see their ancestors.

I am addicted to FindaGrave and genealogy research in general. I have had the good fortune to connect with a number of cousins through this website.

Most of my research is tracing family members in Mississippi.... Panola, Quitman, Calhoun, Yalobusha and Hinds Counties.

My Family Names: White, Vanderberg, Vanderburg, Potts, Jenkins and Hupperich.

My wife's family: Pitt, Sapp, and Newcomer's, mostly from Oklahoma, and Baldridge from Tennessee.

"I have never met a cemetery I did not like", and
"I can not go to a cemetery and take just one picture".

I am also a volunteer photo taker at Grove Hill, Restland and Oakland Cemeteries in Dallas.

If I have added one of your family members or family friends, let me know and I will transfer them to you.


A number of the pictures added and memorials created in the Memphis and North Mississippi area have been contributed by my cousin, Becky Vanderburg Abbott.


Any photograph I have added to any memorial may be used by the general public, without credit to me.

RE: Gwendolyn Terry
I just noticed that you have created a duplicate memorial for Gwendolyn Terry. I am going to correct her name on my memorial.

RE: Gwendolyn Terry
She is not in an unmarked grave. She was my grandmother but I did not realize that they had put Blaine Roberts Terry on the grave marker. I apologize for the confusion. You took the right picture and I appreciate it very much.

Kathleen and Winston Willaims
Hi Tom,
Thank you for trying to find markers for Kathleen and her son Winston. They drowned in White Rock Lake when their rented small boat capsized. I will remove the photo requests as I now believe there are no markers for them. I really appreciate your effort in trying to locate them.

Tom, Just FYI, I've already posted a photo that I had taken earlier after you had sent me an edit request for a link a few days ago.
