Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello All I am Lynda Sue White. I was born in 1961 in Fort Worth Texas.
I was raised near Azle Texas. In an old township of Sabatheny TX.
I was born to Lawrence William Vernon White & Rosie Lee (Callen) [Laird] White.
My mother was born Rosa Lee Laird and adopted by West Columbus Callen and Sudie E.(Massie)Callen
in 1918. Both my parents are deceased.
I have three brothers:
Calvin Roy White born to Rosie and her previous husband, James C. McKnight, in Cottle, TX.
Lawrence adopted him when he and Mom married. Roy married Florence A Troughton in 1975.
Calvin passed away in 1996. They had no children.
Lawrence Vernon Dean White born in Topeka, KS. He married Patricia Anne Hughes in 1964.
They had a daughter, Teresa Anne White.
Donald Leslie Callen White born in Topeka, KS. He married Emma K Perhacs in 1968
and divorced from her in 1974. He married Janie Robins in 1988.
Don passed away in early 2013. No children from either union.
I married Richard Lee Rippy in 1979. We separated in 1994, and divorced in 2008.
We had three boys:
Richard Allan Loran. Richard put Allan up for adoption in 1997,
his name is now Allan William Terwilliger.
Steven William Ray. Steven married Kathi Jo Anderson in 2005.
They have two daughters and two sons.
And my last son, Paul Devon Keith.
I met William Daniel Lillard in 1997. William has two daughters Megan Raylynn, and Nichole Alexis.
Both reside with their Mother Rabecca Alford.
We have a Common Law relationship that began in 1997.
We were Handfasted in 2010 in Thousand Palms, CA.
William and I reside with a very good friend John Adam Marsee II, at his family farm in Indiana.
In the strange way of the universe, John is related to me
through my Mother's Adoptive Mother Sudie E. Massie.
He is her 7th. Cousin 5 times removed.
I research the White-Laird-McClymont-Tillman lines for my own family.
I research the Rippy-Smith Bloodlines as well as the
Richardson-Cooley line for my ex-husband and family.
I research the Marsee-Brewster line for my friend John,
as well as finding the link between Marsee and Massey that linked us as family.
And lastly I research the Lillard- Haydock lines for my partner William.
My friends and family all tend to be a loose knit group.
We are never all in the same place at the same time.
But we will all bend over backward to help one of "ours" in need.

West Columbus Callen marker photo
Lynda, I had requested for someone to take a photo of West Columbus and Sudie Callen's cemetery marker. And, it was fulfilled this morning. He had left you a note, here on your profile page. My wife and I appreciate the Find A Grave volunteers, who spend their time and energy to do this for us.

I found a headstone picture in Paducah, Tx Garden of Memories Cemetery. I added it to her memorial.

My Callen Line
I am the great grandson of Socrates "Crat" Polasky Callen, you can read (or maybe you already have) my Profile page and trace me back to Carroll Co., Arkansas to Thomas Callen. We have had a copy of The Callen Cronicles (a family history book) for well over 30 years, I think. I've been to this Bold Springs, Texas cemetery 2 or 3 times. And, did you know that Crat named the community in Okla. that he settled in, Bold Springs (all that's left of either one is just a cemetery). I'm pretty proud of my Callen family tree, mainly because of this history book, I suppose. Plus, my dad and great grand dad lived to over 90 years of age. My grand-dad, Jess Callen died to young, only 50 yrs. (before I was born). TTYL!

Distant Kin/Callen
I am Ron Callen, a fellow Find A Grave Contributor. I have broused Find A Grave for a couple of years; but, finally joined back in Nov., 2013. I became noisey about where West Columbus Callen was buried and if I'm in that part of Texas, I'll try and locate his marker. Take a look at my Profile page and virtual cemeteries. I'll be typing you more notes in the future. TTYL !
