    Notes 
    • Per OLDTIMERS OF SABINE COUNTY, TEXAS "he was known as the Daniel Boone of his day, never tiring of being in the woods. He hunted wild game at every opportunity, and never was his larder empty of venison, turkey and squirrel. A nephew, A.V. White recalls seeing John and his brother-in-law, George Morris, coming home with two large turkey gobblers, with their feet tied together and a pole between their legs and their heads dragging.

      He loves to tell tall tales and was known as somewhat of a joker. He tells of the time his uncle, Jack White, shot a deer and thinking it was dead, ran up and grabbed it by the horns. The deer came up stomping and kicking Jack with its sharp hoofs. "Jacks feet were in pretty bad condition" chuckled John "but he was always getting in trouble. Once he caught a fawn and tied it to a tree with his shirt. When Jack got ready to go home home, it had broken loose and fled, taking Jack's shirt along." A dead pan joker, John White had such a reputation for tall tales that Andrew Lott told a newcomer Tom Pulliam, who started to repeat something John said, "anyone repeating anything John White says has to shell a a half a bushel of peanuts. Once when someone was bragging about his corn harvest, Johh said "Oh that's nothing. I had to haul half of mine into have room to windrow the rest."

      The Whites have lived all their married life on their farm in the Pinehill community where they raised their children and where they now have retired in their pleasant little house surrounded by tall pines and beautiful scenery.

      There are 23 grandchildren and seven great grandchildren (circa 1964).

The White's had one son who married a daughter of the Carrico's. PLEASE HELP US VERIFY THE IMAGES OF ALL FOUR INDIVIDUALS.
