Are You My Cousin?: My Ancestors' Signatures

Are You My Cousin?

Discovering My Ancestors -- One Cousin at a Time

I tell the stories of my ancestors’ lives. Whether they lived 20 years ago or 200 years ago, they each have a story to tell. Some ancestors tell their stories willingly. Others must have their stories carefully teased from the records. Sometimes the stories are sad. Sometimes the stories are happy. Sometimes the stories are just funny. Regardless, my ancestors’ stories shaped their lives and the lives of those that followed. Come and share in the tales!

My Ancestors' Signatures

I have recently begun intensely researching my White family line of Surry County, NC.  I am working with another White family researcher and we are making some great discoveries.  (I'll share more about the that in future posts.)

One of the fun things I found this week is the signature of my GGGG grandfather John White as he wrote it in Feb 1833.  A White is Albert White, the son of John.  These signatures are at the bottom of a bond naming John White as executor of his uncle John Seagrove's estate.

The last signature is that of Pleasant Venable.  I'm not sure yet where he fits into things.

There is much work to be done to be done on this White family line.  There are MANY White families out there and MANY men named John White.  All are not our ancestors.

If you are a White family researcher with Surry County connections, I'd like to hear from you.
