Sarah Jane (Thigpen) White
and Daughters

Sarah Jane (Thigpen) White was born 15 Aug 1845, Lauderdale Co AL, died 14 Jan 1923, Lauderdale Co AL. She was the daughter of George Washington and Elizabeth (King) Thigpen. On 23 Jul 1866, Sarah Jane married Drury Franklin White (9 Apr 1846 - 19 Oct 1892) the son of Daniel and Elmina (Barnett) White. Drury Franklin and Sarah Jane (Thigpen) White had ten children:

Sarah Jane (Thigpen) White is my great grandmother. The two daughters pictured with her are the youngest daughters, (Martha and Rose), but I do not know which is which. Martha married Bennie McGee and Rose married Wilson Putman.
