Additional Information

Matthew White:

Notes:

a Matthew White is listed in the 1840 Mining Census p. 381 Andrew White is on p. 384

Matthew White, possible brother to Andrew,was born in Ireland in about 1812. He married a woman in Pennsylvania and their first child, Samuel, was born there in 1836. They appear in Jo Daviess County about the same time as Andrew does. They show up in the 1840 census in the Small Pox District. I wrote and asked someone about that name and this is the reply I got, "Smallpox Creek runs through the county. It's probably a reference to that." Once in Jo Daviess County Matthew and his wife had children Mary, James, Sarah, Eliza Jane, and Matilda. Matthew's wife died before the 1850 census so we don't know her name. In 1859 he married Mary Ann Costello and they had one child, Matthew. Then Matthew Sr. died in 1861 and the baby Matthew died in 1862. Matthew's son Janes married a German girl named Fanny. They raised at least seven children, first in Missouri, and then Kansas. Matthew's daughter Eliza Jane married James Bawden. They had at least 5 children in Jo Daviess County. Matthew's daughter Matilda married Alanson Crandall and they settled in Iowa

Mary Ann Costello:

Notes:


Mary Ann received a Dower of 80 acres in Rice County after her husband Matthew died.

(01) Mathew White:

Notes:

It seems surprising that the father was born in 1812 and the son in 1825, however, from reading the estate papers, it seems clear that these two Mathew Whites are father and son.
