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 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: Leatherman at Oakland Cemetery
Regarding the third Leatherman in Oakland, I have no idea who could be the parents of this child and most likely it is one of mine. I am going to contact the cemetery & see if they may have anything else in their records for this child.

Thanks for letting me know about it.

Jinnie Goodman
Thanks for the great photos and the transfer of the memorials. I had in my research that she married a Goodman. The cemetery told me her name Jennie Goodwin. Thanks for your determination to locate her, and all you do for all of us.

Two Leatherman Infants Transferred to me
Thank you so much for transferring the two Leatherman children to me. That was very nice of you to do that. I did find another Leatherman at Western Heights of mine that you made and would like to have it transferred also. It is Thomas Alphonso Leatherman, Jr., memorial # 162805100.

This is my husband's line along with his May, Yaw & LeSure lines. I visited the Western Heights cemetery back in the nineties but it was all locked up except for a small area in the front and there were some of his family there and I took photo's of those but I never could get hold of anyone to get inside the cemetery grounds when I was able to go.

I Live in Mesquite and am now retired but never seem to get the time to go. I really need to do this as I have about 20 or more relatives of these lines that are buried there. My husband has more relatives buried in Laurel Land, Grove Hill, Oakland other places near here and I have been to some of them but not all. I absolutely love Grove Hill & we plan to be buried there when the time comes. I am a little bit leery of going to Oakland alone as it is in not the best end of town.

Anyway, thanks for all you do on find-a-grave. I haven't done nearly as many as you & I have been on it longer.
