    Looking for any information on a Simon T. White or Pharoah White sons of Jonathon White and Nanny Cordell during 1810-1830 period. Supposedly came from Johnston County.

    Thanks in advance,
    Mr. White

  2. Hello distant cousin.... I got your voice mail, but it's gotten late quickly today. It's good to hear from someone else that's working on a branch of the White family. It's good to hear a bit of confirmation on the Jonathan White & Ann/Nanny Cordell (I think I've seen Nancy written as well).

    I'll try to look tomorrow and see what information I have on Simon.... I always suspected that the older Simon T. White was a brother to Pharoah, they just seemed to crop up in some of the same places and of course, Pharoah named one of his children Simon. I'll also skim through and find the connection to the younger Pharoah you mentioned in your comment. (I went ahead and approved both over at )

    I'll try to see about adding a bit of information tomorrow.

  3. Here's a long bit of note-taking from a bundle of papers that were essentially the records of Pharoah White's disability pension application process, which ultimately became Malissa White's widows pension application papers. I've tried to record the year that each bit of testimony was recorded to try to derive a birth year, but there are some inconsistencies. I've added some comments, observations in parenthesis.

    Notes on Pharaoh White pension application/ Malissa White widows application.....

    Pharaoh was in the US Navy

    Malissa md. Pharaoh Jan. 21, 1886 by Justice of the Peace Grassy Branch, Buncombe Co., NC

    She had 2 children previously with George Wilson. Semantha Jane and Thomas are the names of the 2 children. Semantha works in the Asheville Cotton Mill and Thomas is in the 14th Arizona Cavalry, Fort Grant Arizona (1903)

  4. What follows is another long post.... most of the census records that I've collected for the White family searching for Pharoah's origins. You'll notice Simon T. shows up more than a few times. I still seem unable to find Pharoah in 1860 - perhaps he's over in Tennessee (he was married in Greene County and is there in 1870...) (CORRECTION: I do have a listing of Pharoah White in 1860 in Greene County listed below I just skimmed too quickly....) I've also followed up on some of Pharoah's children and their families (you may notice towards the end that Simon White (son of Pharoah) had a son named Pharo as well. I thought I had seen a birth record of yet another Pharoah White somewhere along the way, but can't lay my hands on that right now. (I may not have noted it since it wasn't in the direct line.)

    Some of the families that I've made notes of below are probably unrelated, but my goal in this was to try and collect as much as possible and see if I could find any common threads. I've tried to note page numbers were possible and have noted other records to look for (or to look for originals.) I've ordered it chronologically from 1800 where I have some of the White families of Johnston County, including Saul White. I believe Saul White to be Pharoah and Simon's grandfather.

    Polly White p. 519 (same page as a Jonathan Caudle) Not necessarily Jonathans mother – this could be the same as Sarah spouse of Saul, that family could have been living with another family and therefore not show up by surname in the census. The ages do seem to work here though.

    Could not find Pharoah White in a family in this county – believe I found Nancy Green however…. Maybe in NC in 1850 ? – Other TN county? Is Pharoah the Eastwood White living with Ann White in Buncombe Co., NC?????

Also, Pharoah had a brother Simon – so is Eastwood actually the same as Pharoah???

  5. Another file that I have connecting the dots between the Cordell's and the White's. Nothing new, just drawing connections between the testimony above, the census, etc...

    D. Cordell (Dave whome Pharoah rented land from?) testified to Pharoah's health having known him from _before_ the war. I only find 1 Dave Cordell in NC in 1850, Swann. Buncombe, NC He seems to be a son of Alsey Cordell who shows up on p. 142a of 1840's census. Judging by his birthdate (Dave's) he would have been b. 1835 ish, about the same age as Pharoah (give or take a couple years.)

    So, it seems the Cordells were in Buncombe before the war..... Let's recheck the White's.

    There is an Ann White in 1840 living near a _____ Cordell (seems I've looked at her before as possibly Pharoah's mother.

    Then in 1850 we have Ann White (next household is John Hayes with wife Ridley?) This could be R.A. Hayes who testified as Pharoah's sister!!! The children with Ann are Penelope 13, Simon 15 and Eastwood 14. Pharoah is not listed *(unless he's going by a first or middle name?) He should be 14-18 at this time.

    Another note - Dad mentioned that the name Cordell seemed as though it may fit somewhere in there (I.e. someone was a Cordell who md. a White)

  6. Skipping back to Johnston County..... The will of Saul White proved in 1806.... lists sons Jonathan and William, wife Sarah. I believe the son Jonathan is the same that we suspect is father of Simon T. and Pharoah....

    The Will of Saul White 1806 Johnston Co., NC

    In the name of God Amen.
    I Saul White of the County of Johnston and State of North Carolina being sick and weak in body but of sound and perfect mind and memory do make and declare this my last will and testament in manner and form following that is to say.

    First I recommend my soul to God who gave it. Trusting in his mercies and merits of my redeemer for remission of all my sin. And as to such temporal estate as hath pleased God to bestow on me after all my just debts are paid I give bequeath and dispose of in the following manner.

    Item - I lend to my beloved wife Sarah White the land and plantation whereon I live during her life also my household furniture and plantation tools and horse and all my stock of cattle and hogs and my will is that so much of my personal estate be so at discretion of my executors as will be sufficient to satisfy all my just Debts.

    Item - I give and bequeath to my two sons Jonathan White and William White after my wife deceases the said land and plantation whereon I now live to be equally divided between them to them, their heirs and assignees for ever also all my personal estate after my wife deceases and do hereby appoint my beloved wife Sarah White Executrix and my friend Jacob Johnson Executor of this my last will and testament and do hereby disannull all former wills by me made declaring this and no other to be my last will and testament.

    I witness whereof I have hereunto is my hand and seal this seventh day of October 1806

  7. The above is most of the raw data I've collected and transcribed for the computer. I may have a few other stray notes tucked away in my family tree maker database or printed files, but I think this covers 95% of what I have.

    I wonder if the continual testimony and fight over Pharoah's disability pension plus the sudden death of Sarah Hare isn't what added up to the story that he was accused of killing his wife. I would imagine it could have taken less to start a rumor like that. I don't know how many different times he had to go and submit to a doctors exam and give testimony.

    Pharoah and Malissa are buried in a little cemetery on the hill across the road from the Vance Birthplace here in the Reems Creek Area. I've also visited a cemetery at Bethesda Methodist Church (in the Haw Creek area) where there are several of the White family buried and several of the Cordell family. I don't recall immediately, but Simon T. White may be buried there. (I think that's in the other 5% of notes that I haven't transcribed...)

    By the way, any idea what the middle initial T stood for? Simon T. White?

  8. Oh, by the way, I forgot to mention that I do have images of many of the census records listed above if you would be interested in copies of the original census sheets.

  9. A few other odds and ends.... the cemetery where Pharoah is buried is called Vance Cemetery.

    I have found a marriage for Jonathan White and Nancy "Ann" Cordell of March 1, 1820. *I am not sure how her name was recorded in that - I think it may have been Nancy Cordell.

    Following up on Saul White and spouse Sarah....

    From various notes (including one summary below, Saul (Solomon) White md. Sarah Stevenson in 1792 in Johnston County. There was only one Saul White in Johnston Co., NC at the time, I suspect that Jonathan was his son (Supposedly he is listed in the will which I need to find a copy of.... (1806)) If that Jonathan is indeed Pharoahs father then we are starting to get a fairly good picture of this branch of the family after many years as the "brickwall"....

    Currently all that I have on the ancestors of Sarah Stephenson have been taken from other sources online, VERY little firsthand research to back it up, although it looks as though someone has done some good homework.....

    Message Board Post:

    Isaac Johnson (b. about 1770) was the son of Frederick Johnson and
    wife Sarah Stevenson of Johnston County, North Carolina. Frederick Johnson
    first appeared in Johnston County, NC on July 17, 1764 when he purchased
    250 acres on the South side of Middle Creek from Joel Johnson (DB D-1,
    p. 170). On May 22, 1769, he sold 100 acres of this same tract to George
    Johnson (DB Trs-2, p. 7). Prior to May 24, 1769, Frederick Johnson had
    married Sarah Stevenson, daughter of Solomon Stevenson, Sr., for on that
    date the Johnston County Court minutes show that a deed from Frederick
    Johnson and wife Sarah to Solomon Stevenson was recorded (not found in
    deed books). On Feb. 26, 1772, he again deeded 100 acres to Solomon Stevenson
    (DB H-1, p. 14). A third conveyance to Solomon Stevenson for 40 acres
    on the South side of Middle Creek occurred on October 20, 1777 (DB I-1,
    p. 178). On May 27, 1780, he purchased 100 acres on the south side of
    Middle Creek from George Johnson (DB L-1, !
    p. 131). Frederick Johnson
    died prior to May 29, 1781 when Sarah Johnson was granted administration
    of his estate. The fact that his estate was rendered in court at the same
    time as his brother-in-law Solomon Stevenson, Jr. suggests that their deaths
    may have been connected. Frederick Johnson's account of sales was made
    on Aug. 26, 1781. On May 27, 1782, the Johnston County court ordered that
    his estate be divided between his widow and orphans and the division was
    carried out on August 26, 1782. On Nov. 29, 1784, Jacob Johnson age 12
    was placed under the guardianship of his uncle James Stevenson, and the
    following day Isaac Johnson was placed under the guardianship of his uncle
    John Stevenson. Some years later on May 28, 1793, the court appointed
    a committee to adjust the estate of Frederick Johnson with his administrator
    Sally Johnson. The residue of the estate was divided among Sally Johnson,
    Isaac Johnson, and Jacob Johnson.

    After the death of Frederick Johnson,
    his widow Sarah remarried to Travis Johnson (Johnston Co. Will devised
    Oct. 13, 1790, Proven Nov. 1790). Sarah Johnson and her son Isaac Johnson
    served as executors to the will of Travis Johnson and on March 3, 1791
    they submitted an inventory of his estate. On Sept. 27, 1792, Sarah (Stevenson)
    Johnson married thirdly Solomon "Saul" White (Johnston Co. Will devised
    Oct. 7, 1806, proven Nov., 1806). Sarah White and Jacob Johnson served
    as executors to the 1806 will of Saul White, and Isaac Johnson was one
