Seeking info on Capt James M. WHITE (born March 11, 1828 in Patterson, Passiac, NJ) married on August 25, 1856 in Pike Co. to Rachel Ann CHENOWETH (born March 01, 1832 in Washington Twnshp, Darke Co.). She's the daug of John C. CHENOWETH & Elizabeth FOSTER.

James, Rachel & some children moved to Darke Co. in 1872 moving onto Nodaway Co., MO, by the 1890 Special Civil War Veterans Census. They had 8 children with 5 surviving to 1880 as follows: Mary (b 1859, married Thomas KELLEY in OH), Jennie (b 1861, never married), Anna (b 1868, married Samuel Isaac MILLER in MO), Elizabeth (b 1872, married Charles HANN in MO) & Thomas (b 1876, ? married). Mary & Thomas KELLEY may -not- have moved onto MO, but remained in OH.

James is mentioned in the Beers "History of Darke Co" Book on pg 757, but would like to know more about his family's time in & around Darke Co. Who is the KELLEY family that Mary married into? Plenty is known of the CHENOWETH & FOSTER families, but what became of James' parents, Michael & Catherine WHITE? Did James have siblings? All help is greatly appreciated.
