I am trying to locate the widow of James K. White - d: 1845. According to his death notice in Palmyra Whig Herald, he left a wife and 6 small children.
On the 1850 census, I have found a Joseph Drew and Elizabeth L with children: Augustine White - 18, James - 16, Ann E - 15, Obed M - 14 -
I do not know what the name of the wife of James K White was or the name of their children. In 1840 census, James K is listed as head of household and includes an older woman which turned out to be his mother in law, Prudence Miller. She died in 1844 in Palmyra. She was from Shepherdstown, WV and had a son Joseph C. Miller who moved to Shelbyville, Shelby, MO and lived his life there.
I am trying to 1) find out about the widow of James K White, 2) what happened to the White children 3) name of Prudence's husband - according to a letter she wrote to her son Joseph C. in April 1829 from Shepherdstown, WV, his father had died. The will records in Jefferson Co WV have a George Miller who died at that time and his wife was Prudence Thornberg. 4) where is Prudence buried (she moved to Marion Co. with her daughter and died there), 5) where is James K White buried 6) what was his occupation? 7) did he have land 8) was there a will, estate, guardianship etc. in regard to his 6 small children?
I would appreciate any information on the Drew and White family -- or if the widow of James K married some other person
