Isaac White was born 4 June 1752 in Kent Co. Delaware, son of Isaac White, SR and Jane Campbell. He died 18 Aug 1819 Washington Co. Tennessee, buried on his farm in the White Family Cemetery, Washington Co. Tennessee.
His family moved to Guilford Co. North Carolina where he was married by Mr. Thomas Rice, Clerk of the Parish of Guilford Co, NC on 12 Oct 1775 to SARAH VAUGHN born 1755 Hanover Co. Virginia died 15 June 1844 Washington Co. Tennessee, Buried White Family Cemetery, Washington Co. Tenn, daughter of DAVID VAUGHN & SUSANNAH ________.
Oct 1780 in defense of his country, he served in the Revolutionary War at the Battle of King's Mountain in the Continental Army North Carolina Militia as Lieutenant and Capt. His descendants are members of the Daughters of the American Revolution Nos. 291784; 185587; & 271596.
"J. G. Beatty married Miss Ann Graham, daughter of Archibald Graham, of Virginia, and sister of Col. Wm. Graham. He settled on Buffalo creek, now owned by Rev. Thos. Dixon. He became such a terror to the American Cause that Col. Wm. Graham sent a squad of soldiers, under command of Captain Isaac White and Lieut. Espy, to arrest him. They found him at home. Some of the soldiers were so enraged at his political principles that they killed him in his own house."
He moved his family from Guilford Co. NC just after the Battle of Guilford in the last year of the Revolution in 1782. They were among the first families arriving in Washington Co, Tennessee settling on the Fall Branch of Horse Creek. They are listed in the East Tennessee Historical Society's First Families of Tennessee Certificate Application File #9842-1 20 Dec 1996.
On 7 Aug 1792, he purchased 315 acres on Horse Creek from William Magbee, Sr for 160 pounds. He also owned about 200 acres in Sullivan Co. TN.
He served Washington Co. as a Justice of the Peace and a tax collector, along with tilling his farm and raising his family of 12 children. See BIBLE RECORDS
As evidenced by his will, he also was a slaveholder. His will may be viewed on the Washington Co. Tenn US Gen Web project.
About 1818 he became ill with the dropsy and gravel, before his death on 18 Aug 1819. He was laid to rest on his farm in the White family cemetery where his memorial still lies, along with many of his children and descendants.

Dear Aunt Sissie, First, may I know your actual name, Please? I am a White descendant and sinece I noticed that your Isaac was born in Kent County, DE, I thought I'd write, because my Whites were also from Kent County, DE. I'm wondering if or how your Isaac might be related to my Whites. My Whites start with William, unknown birthdate or place, m. Sarah unknown, died in 1762. They had the following children:
John b. ca. 1748 d. 1786, Kent Co., DE
William b. ca 1750
Rachel b. ca. 1752
Sarah b. ca. 1754
Isaac b. ca. 1756
Jacob b. ca. 1758
Mary b. ca. 1758
Stephan b. ca. 1762 d. 1785, Kent Co., DE
William bought land at Meridith's Branch on 14 Sep 1741.
Richard White may have been a brother of William White.
As you can see, I have an Isaac listed too, but it's showing a different birthdate. However, the birthdates I have aren't verified, that I know of. I guess the big question is, do you know who the parents of your Isaac were? I will be waiting to hear from you. Thank you, Susan McAtee email@example.com

He died in 1786 in Kent Co., DE. His will was probated on 8 Feb 1786. John left a widow Isabella unknown. She died in 1797 in Kent Co., DE. Her will was probated 11 May 1797. Alexander White, the eldest son of John and Isabella (unknown) White, was born 10 Jan 1775 in Kent Co., DE. He died 20 Dec 1825 in Logan Township (now Harrison Township), Dearborn Co., IN. He was 50 years, 11 months and 9 days old at the time of his death. He was buried in the Braysville cemetery there. Alexander White married first Elizabeth Dyer in 1795 in Kent Co. DE. She was the daughter of Edward and Mary (Gray) Dyer and was born in 1774.. Edward Dyer and Mary Gray were married about 1770 in Murderkill Hundred, Kent County, Delaware Children born to Alexander and Elizabeth (Dyer) White in Kent Co.

He took over from his mother, Isabella White, who had taken it over from his father John White, who had taken over from his grandmother , Sarah White. It is inferred from the 1820 census that Alexander had a daughter born about 1815 who probably died before 1826 because she is not mentioned in her father's probate records. After Alexander's death, his widow Nancy married Joshua Hinesley in Dearborn Co., IN on 1 Feb 1827. In 1840 they were living in Center Township, Marion Co. IN (now Inianapolis). Susan
