I would like to make contact with anyone related to the James (Jim) White family, who lived in Pickens County in the late 1800's. Related families include Farleys and Bushes.
These Whites moved to Alabama from South Carolina in the 1840's or so.
Thank you for any information, and I look forward to hearing from some of my Alabama cousins.

I saw your posting today and I will go back through my mother's family history book and check to see if I can find a James W. White. My great grandfather Cathey White and his wife Josie (Propst) White had 11 children. 10 of them were born in Pickens Co. The family moved to High, Texas and the 11th child was born there. That was my grandfather James Clark White. The family history book that I refer to is "The Sheltons" and was published in 1962 by Z.F. Shelton of Montgomery, Al.

Hello, Jennifer:
I'm so excited to finally locate some of my Alabama cousins. I knew that there must be lots of cousins there, but I didn't know how to find them. We are all descended from a Wiley White, who was born and married in South Carolina, and then moved to Mississippi, and on to Pickens County, Ala. I know as much as I do about family history because my great greatgrandfather and his family were in a book called "Goodspeed's History of Southeast Missouri." It was published in about 1888, and much of the information is inaccurate, but that's where I found out about James White, who stayed in Pickens County, while my ancestor moved to southeast Missouri. My brothers and sisters and I were the fourth generation to live on the family farm. Sometime I want to go back to South Carolina, to research our first ancestors there, but it won't be this year.
.
Again, I'm delighted to hear from you. I think there's a woman named Tami Darley from Alabama, who is also related to us, but I haven't been able to contact her.
I'll be waiting to hear from you again.
Best wishes,
Diane White

Hello, Murphey:
I'm sorry to have taken so long to reply. The James White who was related to my family lived in Pickens County, Ala/. for the most part. As recently as the 1930 census of Pickens County, there were descendants of his. I don't think that the James White you are descended from is the same James (Jim) White. The Whites of my family moved from Kershaw County, South Carolina, to Mississippi, (Lawrence County, I think) but then they moved on to Pickens County,
where my ggggrandfather, Wiley White died. He was married to a woman named Pernina Ellen Cliburne, who was also from South Carolina. I'm not sure where Columbus, Miss. is, but I tend to think these are not the same Whites, unless you have other information linking these families.
Thank you very much for responding to my e-mail.

You are correct in that the James White I posted was not from Pickens Countty, AL. I found the James White I posted in Pike County, AL, and later in Noxubee County, MS. Thanks for the information.

HI, Diane.

I do know about Tami Darley. Her grandmother & my grandmother were first cousins. I think I still have her email address around here somewhere. I will check.

Would love to exchange info with you. Are you a descendant of Jim White or just a relative? Are you in Missouri? I have so many questions for you & I'm sure you have some for me as well.

Please contact me again! I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Jennifer
