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.

Otto Brucker
Tom, Thank you for taking the time to photograph Otto Brucker's grave site. I am in the process of having a marker installed and needed to confirm current status. I live in Louisiana and do not get to Dallas often.

Thanx again

Do you happen to have some type of verification of baby Tenison's birth? I've been trying to confirm the date of birth. Thank you so much for any information you might be able to share!

RE: McClure Bruton
Which upright stone is Glynnann's, the gray one that says Bruton- McClure or the reddish one that just says McClure?

RE: Grove Hill Photo Requests
No sir, I just remember the Personetts and Bellmire's from my childhood days at my Grandparents' church. I think it's kinda sad that Mr. Personett's death date is missing, he passed away in 1988. Did you notice the message that I left for you concerning Glynnanne Bruton McClure? Any way, THANKS AGAIN!!
