     Samuel White was born say 1785 at Pennsylvania.1 He married Eleanor Mitchell at Pennsylvania say 1810.1 Samuel White died between 1811 and 1875 at Pennsylvania.1 He was mentioned deceased This account was found in the Mifflin county Historical Society.
It was written shortly before William's death in 1875 and published in the Lewistown Gazette. It is rambling and sometimes hard to follow but I thought you might find it interesting. I have copied it exactly as I found it; however I have numbered the children to make it easier to follow.
" My grandfather, John Mitchell , came to Philadelphia long before the Revolutionary War. He married a lady named Jane Ross, the only daughter of Lord John Ross who was very wealthy. Her father was bitterly opposed to the marriage and they had to flee the country. (Ireland) The father then offered one hundred pounds, under the Old English law for his head, dead or alive. In the course of time the father became reconciled to the marriage and went up from Philadelphia to Carlisle and owned them as his children. John Ross died in Philadelphia, date unknown to us.
John Mitchell had eight children, three boys and five girls.
(1) James, the eldest , married Mary Steel; they had two daughters and one son. They lived in Greencastle, Pa, where James died August 8, 1870.

Ross, James and William, sons of whom we know nothing.
Isabella died November 15 , 1811 and John Ross died in 1802, at the same place where his father died, one mile north of Carlisle at the Big Limestone Spring. Another daughter is said to have married a man named Miller. This might have been the daughter of the first marriage to Mary West.
(5) Ann Agnes married Thomas Alexander.
(6) William 1756-1822, married Elizabeth Hamilton on March 23 1780; He died March 8, 1822; She died April 9, 1827, in Clarion county. In 1777 he went down to Brandywine to haul the baggage wagons and was in that battle, serving under Capt. Walter Stewart, 2nd Pa. Regiment, and in 1778 was transferred to Capt. Jacob Ashmead's Co., same Regiment, as drummer. He served 2 years; was paid off in Continental money, fetched it home and bought a farm near Lancaster or New Lancaster . He married near Red Rock Church in Sherman's Valley. In 1766 his father John traded the horses he rode over the mountain into Dry valley, looking for land, to a man named Baird for his claim to several hundred acres of land.
In 1781 William sold his farm he bought with his war pay to a man named Davis, and in 1784 he, his wife, and two children, on horseback came over the mountain to settle upon the farm his father had traded his horses for. William Mitchell's body was buried in the Methodist Church yard at Kelly and on the headstone: " A Soldier of the Revolution."

Peregrine White1

M, b. between 7 December 1620 and 10 December 1620, d. 22 July 1704
FatherWilliam White1 b. c 1592, d. 21 Feb 1621
MotherSusanna ?1 b. c 1594, d. bt 1654 - 1675
     Peregrine White was born between 7 December 1620 and 10 December 1620 at aboard the Mayflower, Provincetown, Barnstable County, Massachusetts; new style.1,2 He was birth between 7 and 10 Dec 1620; death 20 or 22 Jul 1704.1 He is included in the biography of William White and Susanna ?; Little is known about Pilgirm William White. Governor Bradford says that among the Mayflower passengers were "Mr. William White and Susanna his wife and one son called Resolved, and one born a-shipboard called Peregrine, and two servants named William Holbeck and Edward Thompson.' In 1651 he added that "Mr. White and his two servants died soon after their landing. His wife married with Mr. Winslow. . . His two sons are married and Resolved hath five children, Peregrine two, all living. So their increase are seven.'
William and Susanna White left England with son Resolved. At Cape Cod, on November 12, 1620, according to the old calendar, William was one of the forty-one signers of the Mayflower Compact. Two to three weeks later son Peregrine was born, the first English birth in Plymouth Colonyh. She became the first colony bride in May, marrying Edward Winslow, a Mayflower passenger who had lost his wife a few weeks before. At least four children were born to Susanna and Edward.
About 1638, the Winslows with young Peregrine and Resolved White, moved to Green Harbor, now called Marshfield. Edward Winslow rose to prominence as Governor of Plymouth Colony, became Colony representative to England,and at last was persuaded to use his diplomatic skills for Oliver Cromwell, heading up a joint commission with the Dutch to award reparations for damage cauised to Danish ships. Interesting though it may be to imagine sharing those years in London with him, hostess to officials from various governments, no evidence has been found to indicate that she accompanied her husband on any of his trips to England. One of the few extant documents mentioning her by name is a "Bill of Sale" in which "Susanna Winslow wife of Mr. Edward Winslow of Marshfield and his Agent in this tyme of his Absence in England" sold for ten years the services of an Indian man. The agreement was dated 12 (11) 1647, that is 22 Jan 1648 1648 by our calendar.
Edward spent the last six years of his life in England. His will in 1654 as a resident of London, leaves his land in New England to son Josiah "hee allowing to my wife a full third parte thereof for her life also.l' If Susanna were living in London at the time, it would have been natural to provide for her there as well.
No further record of Susanna has ever been found. She must have died before 1675 when her son Josiah Winslow made no proviso for her in his will, although he made bequests to numerous relatives and friends. This surely refuts the claim of some that she died at Marshfield within two weeks of Josiah's death in 1680. It seems strange that this woman who was the wife of one colony governor and the mother of another, first Plymouth colony bride and mother of the famed Peregrine White, cojuld have left no record of her passing in town, church, court, or press.
Susanna (---_ (White) Winslow was not the sister of Dr., Samuel Fuller as is often claimed. Samuel and Edward Fuller who came on the Mayflower were sons of Robert of Redenhall, England. Robert had no daughter Susanna. He did have a daughter Anna, born about 1578, far too old a bride for Edward Winslow who would not be born till 1595. The will of Robert Fuller in 1614 mentions no daughter Susanna, nor a daughter married to William White. Dr. Samuel Fuller's will in 1633 mentions only one sister, Alice Bradford -- actually his sister-in-law. The only positive clue to Susanna's ancestry seems to be a letter from Edward Winslow to "Uncle Robert jackson" in 1623, in which he sent news of Susanna, her late husband, and her children. He also sent his regards to his father-in-law in England, by which time Robert Fuller was nine years dead. A cursory inventigation of the Jackson family has shed no light on the subject.
The name White occurs too often in England to make an extensive search for William's ancestry practical. Alexander and Eleanor White of Sturton-le-Steeple, Notts, in the heart of Pilgrim country,had daughters Katherine, Bridget, and Jane who married Gov.Carver, The Rev. Robinson and Randolph Thickens. They had no son William but a nephew named William White might be worth investigating.
For many years genealogists have assumed that Pilgrim William White sp;ent his early years in Holland, marrying at Leiden in 1612 and burying children there in 1615 and 1616. A critcal examination of Leiden sources casts heavy doubt on this assumption. Before 1620 there are five mentions of a William White in Leiden, but no proof that they apply to the Pilgrim. They may all apply to the William White who was still living there in 1621.

Notice that the 1612 marriage is to Ann Fuller, not Susanna. White's wife is always called Susanna in New England (An article in Pilgrim Notes and Queries disproves the theory that Pilgrim White's wife was Susanna Tilley). The burials in 1615 and 1616 do not name the mother. Was it only coincidence that the White-Fuller marriage in 1612 was witnessed by Sarah P:riest, and that she in tujrn had a William White witness at her 1621 marriage? Perhaps Pilgrim William was involved in neither case.
Unfortunately the family of the William White which was still living in Leiden after the Mayflower sailed, is not mentioned in the incomplete 1622 poll tax returns. Fuirther research in the city archives has failed to prove that Pilgrim William ever lived in Holland. Perhaps he shoud be numbered among the London contingent.2 Peregrine White married Sarah Bassett, daughter of William Bassett and Elizabeth ?, circa 1648; perhaps Scituate, MA.1 Peregrine White died on 22 July 1704 at Marshfield Center, Plymouth County, Massachusetts.1 He was in this land' Wheeler Gen p. 6.1

     Peregrine White was born in 1660 at Marshfield, Plymouth County, Massachusetts.1,2 He married Susanna Sherman at Marshfield, Plymouth County, Massachusetts, in 1684.1,2 Resolved White, father of Elizabeth, had a brother, Peregrine, who in turn had a son, Peregrine. This Peregrine White,therefore, was first cousin of Elizabeth White, daughter of Resolved. On 22 Jun 1710 Obadiah Wheeler, son of the Obadiah Wheeler who married Elizabeth White, solda lot of land from his own farm in Concord to this Peregrine White (Middlesex Deeds, vol. 16, p. 399). The transaction included a house, or material for a house, though Peregrine didnot long own it or long reside there, for he, being then of Concord, sold the premises to Richard kates of Boston on 29 Mar 1713 (Ib, Vol. 16, p.497). That there was something more to the situation than a mere absentee business transaction involving real estate, between Obadiah Wheeler and Peregrine White, is shown by the fact that Peregrine White had rights in a pew in the Concord meeting house, and sold these rights to Kates with the farm.
Why Peregrine White should have gone out to Concord and bought a farm of Obadiah Wheeler, and why he owned a part of a pewin the Concord meeting huse are something of a mystery, unless one remembers that his own cousin, Elizabeth, was probably the wifeof Obadiah Wheeler, that another cousin, Anna, was probably the wife of John Hayward, and that the aunt of Elizabeth andAnna Whte, Frances (Vassall) Adams, who was also a sister-in-law of Resolved White, the uncle of Peregrine White of Concord, had been a resident of Concord. on 22 June 1710 at Concord, Middlesex County, Massachusetts.3 Peregrine White died on 7 October 1727 at Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts.1,2

Unfortunately the family of the William White which was still living in Leiden after the Mayflower sailed, is not mentioned in the incomplete 1622 poll tax returns. Fuirther research in the city archives has failed to prove that Pilgrim William ever lived in Holland. Perhaps he shoud be numbered among the London contingent.3 He married Judith Vassall at Scituate, Plymouth County, Massachusetts, on 5 November 1640.3,4 Resolved White lived between 1662 and 1670; rem fr Scituate to Marshfield MA 1662, where he remained until 1670.1 They witnessed Judith Vassall's death at Marshfield Center, Plymouth County, Massachusetts, on 3 April 1670. Just prior to these events, on 3 Apr 1670, Frances' sister, Judith (Vassall) White, wife of Resolved White and molther of Elizabeth and Anna, haddied (Register Vol.8, p. 192) and the home ws to this extent broken up. That a more complete break followed soon, if not at once, is indicated by the fact that ResolvedWhite was at Salem as early as 5 Oct 1674, when he married there Abigail lord, widow (Vital Records of Salem, vol. 4, p. 462). How long he was engaged in his second courtship isnot definately determined; but William Lord's will was proved 24 June 1673, and therefore his widow, Abigail, presumably was free to marry again by or perhaps before this date. Resolved White may have been in Salem evenearly, but he was certainly there at the date noted..5 Resolved, as the father of the bride, attended Elizabeth White and Obadiah Wheeler's wedding at Concord, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, on 17 July 1672.4 He married Abigail Lord at Salem, Essex County, Massachusetts, on 5 October 1674.5 Resolved White died between 1680 and 1687; another source says died 1680 (but prob alive 19 Sep 1687); last but one survivor of Mayflower. He lived in March 1684/85 at Marshfield Center, Plymouth County, Massachusetts.3 He Certain Comeoverers - 'Resolved, the older boy, your ancestor, did not remain with his stepfather's family at Marshfield when he grew of age. In 1638 he owned lands in Scituate a half mile south of the harbor, which he afterwards sold to Lieutenant Isaac Buck. When he w s twenty-six years of age he married Judith, dau of William Vassall of Scituate (April 8, 1640). In the year of his marriage the Court at Plymouth set off to him one hundred acres of land on 'Belle House Neck,' adjoining Mr. Vassall's plantation. In 1646 he acquired other adjoining lands from Mr. Vassall. In 1662 he sold these properties and removed to Marshfield, where he settled near his mother at 'Careswell,' and not far from his brother Peregrine on the South River. It is not known when Judith, his wife, died, but on August 5, 1674, he married Abigail, widow of William Lord of Salem, and removed to Salem, where he probably died. There is not record of his death at Plymouth. In a deed of certain land to his son Josiah in 1677 he describes himself as of Salem. In Governor Josiah Winslow's will, which was written in 1675, there is a bequest to 'my brother Resolved White.' Governor Winslow died December 12, 1680, and there is a tradition that at his funeral Resolved White was present. Resolved White and Judith Vassall had eight children, of whom the third was your six times great grandfather Samuel. With the exception of William (who died in Marshfield 1695), none of these children remained in Scituate or Marshfield. Some of them went to the Barbados, where their grandfather Vassall's family lived. Resolved White had been one of the original twenty six purchasers of the first precinct of Middleboro in 1662 from the Indian Chief Wampatuck, and it is probably that some of his children took up these holdings. At all events the Whites of Middleboro and of Bristol County are largely the descendants of the Mayflower's boy Resolved. William White, p. 99 - 'Resolved came to Plymouth in 1620 with his parents aboard the Mayflowe, and after 1632 moved to Marshfield with his mother and stepfather. he resided in Scituate during the period when his children were born -- 1640 to 1656. he and Judith, and per aps some of their children, travelled to Barbados in 1656/7, presumbably to aid in the settling of the estate of her father, for on 17 March 1656/7 'Resolved White of Scituate in new Plymouth in New England, gentleman, and his wife Judith, daughter of Wiliam Vassall of this Island,' deeded land in Barbados, a deed acknowledged on March 20th by 'Resolved White's wife' and recorded at Barbados only four days later. The family moved to Marshfield in 1662, and were still there in 1670 when Judith died. Resolved was in Salem from 1674 to at least 1682, being a freeman of Salem in 1680. He served in King Philip's War under Capt Manning in 1676. He returned to Marshfield after the death of his second wife, for on 13 march 1684/5 'Resolved White of marshfield' and sons Samuel and Josiah quitclaimed rights to an island, in return for which grantee John Branch would maintain Resolved's eldest son, William. We assume Resolved was still living on 19 Sep 1687 when William quitclaimed his rights in the island to John Branch, mentioning his father, but not as 'deceased,' and mentioning the earlier deed of 'my father Mr. Resolved White.' The authors have found no evidence to support the claim of Pilgrim genealogist George E. Bowman that Resolved died between 1690 and 1694, nor the oft-found statement that he died in Salem. It seems strange that there is no record of the death of Resolved, considering the fame of his brother Peregrine as the first white child born in New England; however no mention of his death has been found in records at the places where his kin were living late in the 1600's. Approximate birth dates may be calculated for Resolved and his second wife from their depositions - he was 'aged about 63' on 5;9;1678 and again in June 1679; Abigail was aged about 74 on '2;1;1679/80.' There are no probate records for Resolved or Judith White but the will of Abigail White, wife of Mr. Resolved White of Salem dated 26 April 1682 and proved June 1682, mentions her former husband William Lord, his kinsman William Lord and the latter's children. She left to 'Resolved White my now husband,' bed, bedding, chest and house furnishings. A deed bearing the signature of Resolved White as witness was pictured in the Mayflower Descendant in 1915.
