Elizabeth married James Eugene white, about Feb 1878, in White Stone Springs Spartanburg Co SC. The town for which she was born and raised.

Her parents according to her death certificate were, Steven? & Elizabeth Foster. I believe they mistakenly used her brother, Stephen's name, as the father, from someone's best memory, the 'Informent' (person who gave info), was E W White, (Eugene Washington White), the oldest child of Elizabeth. Her brother Stephen is also buried at this cemetery. Her father's first name was said to be George, but never used on the Census, was always Washington Foster.

After reviewing the 1860, 1870 census, I am convinced our Elizabeth's father was indeed Washington Foster, and mother was indeed Elizabeth, last name unknown to me, and appears she doesn't have a memorial at this place.

If you review the family names in Elizbaeth White's family and compare with Washington's, it is clear they are closely and respectfully related.

Washington and probably his brother, Houghston, donated the land for this cemetery, and were the first laid to rest at this site.

James & Elizabeth had 9 known children:
Eugene Washington White
Virginia F White
Ralph Jones White
Mary Elizabeth White
James Milton White
George Andrew White
Myra L White
Luis White
Janie Grace White
