The Andrew And Julia WHITE Family Connections: Spencer WHITE (1852 - 1929)

This is a repost with corrections from October 1, 2012
The Andrew And Julia White Connections: Spencer White ( about 1856- ?)
What is known about Spencer White?

What I've discovered came from census records,
a slave advertisement, letters from relatives, a family history booklets and obituaries.
According to the 1880 census 
Spencer was born about 1852 in Missouri.
On the 1900 census he was born about 1855.
The slave ad, he was born about 1852.
His death record
His tombstone states 1857

Spencer White married Miss Malinda Banks on July 15, 1887 in Glasgow, Howard, Missouri.
They were married at City Hall. Malinda had at least one child, Ceola WHITE by Spencer. 

Spencer had three daughters

Ceola WHITE REED (1885 - 1983)
Ceola was the wife of Victor "Vic" Reed. They had a son and a daughter.

Sallie WHITE KIRBY HUDSON (1887-  1920 ) I first came across a Sallie Kirby who visited her father Spencer White in Moberly, MO. This led me to more on Sallie. She married Orlando Kirby in Moberly, MO. on January 10, 1910.

Sallie wasn't listed on Spencer's obituary in May of 1929. I assumed that she passed.  Also Sallie was divorced. Orlando was married to  Lottie Ganaway in October 21, 1921 in Jackson County MO.

Obenatta CRAIG PEARL (1886 - 1973)
Obenatta was the wife of Vernon Pearl.  "Benetta's" mother was Dora (CASON) WHITE CRIAG

According to the 1900 census record Spencer was married to a Lou / Lu WASHINGTON who was born about 1865.  According to a census record they were married on October 10, 1895. Lou had no children,

The year of Spencer's death was on May 15, 1929 in Mobley, Missouri. Spencer was born a slave to Frances White Blakey. Spencer was a day laborer. He spoke English.

Spencer didn't live too far from one of his former slaveholder's son, Yelverster C. Blakey. Also Kelly and Jannie Reed lived on College St with the Whites. Perhaps Spencer's daughter, Ceola married one of the Reed's sons.

I came across a Missouri Death record on a Spencer White, a laborer was born July 15, 1856 in Missouri. This Spencer's parents were Ander White and Julia Finney, both from born in MO. Spencer's wife was Fannie. Spencer was buried in Mobley, Missouri in Oakland Cemetery.

I searched the 1910 census record in Randolph County Missouri. This Spencer's parents were born on Virginia. I don't know if Spencer remarried. This Spencer only married once. He was listed with  two daughters.

One was Emely  (Emily) WHITE  born about 1880. I discovered that Emily Hannah married Louis DADE in July of 1907.  Emily was born in 1875.  Lucier (Lucile) White born 1901. Lucile ? perhaps a granddaughter.  Emily was a widow with one child.

When I blog my first post of Spencer, here was want I said on October 1, 2012.  On December I had confirmation that this Spencer WHITE has family connections. It could be that the Missouri death record of Spencer (WHITE) could  have been the son of Andrew White and Julia White. I don't know if Spencer was married to a Fannie. I hope that this is helpful to the descendants of Spencer White. "

I later had confirmation that Spencer was married Mrs. Fannie Brown. They married on November 17, 1906 in Randolph County Missouri. I'm not for sure if Spencer did have other off springs. Emily was listed as Spencer's daughter. Perhaps a descendant of Spencer WHITE may come across this blog.

Here is the tombstone of Spencer White in Oakland Cemetery. 
The birth year reads 1857.
Emily DADE was Spencer's wife Fannie's daughter.
