Do you know when Esther White died?

I tried to find an obit for her. The Esther White who died May 10, 1977 in Portland is NOT her. (She was the widow of Kenneth L. White.)

An obit could indicate Jean's married name (if any) or other relatives.

James F White's parents were William J and Lilla M White nee Canning that's correct. I didnt know Esther's maiden name. You have two entries for a marriage of Jean L White, is that two different people or was she married twice (Arenault and Conroy). Would like to find family of Jean L if she had any.

Hold on! You can't assume that the Jean L. White who married is 1) YOUR Jean L. White or 2) the same woman without additional information. Just because a name matches it does not mean it's the right person.

According to "Genealogy and history of the Portland, Me., Bruns families..." Jean L. = Jean Lorraine White, born 10 April 1935. She had a brother Leigh James White, born 20 Sept. 1946.

Taking her birth date and plugging it into public records gives a match with Jean Conroy, married to Merritt Weaver Conroy.

Plug in Merritt W Conroy at whitepages.com and you'll get an address and phone number. (Note: might not be current info)

Through public records, white pages, google, I believe this is Leigh and his wife's info:
