I am hoping to hear from anyone who may have Native American Lineage, and have record of intermarriages with the White or LeBlanc ( Canadian ) families. Also any Whites who had lineage in Nova Scotia in the early 1700's - 1900's...Thank you...Mary

Hi Mary ,
My grandfather Ervin Heavlock White , born March 4,1872 in Truro,Nova Scotia,Canada , married Alice Boardman Crowell,born September 10,1874 ,in Truro , Nova Scotia. They were married December 23,1890 in Lynn,massachusetts. I have the White side of the family back to 1771. If you think there is a connection let me know and I will send you the information I have. My grandmother Alice Boardman Crowell was half indian. I believe she was a Mic Mac , but I am not sure.

The surname of White appears quite extensively in the DAWES Roll and the Miller Roll. These are census rolls of the Cherokee Nation taken in the late 1800s and early 1900s, respectively. You can purchase them through your local bookstore.

OK. Here's what I have on my family. If this
is any help I would love to trade particulars.

My Grandmother was Alberta Josephine White born in
Plymouth, MA. (I have her birthcert...but not with
me.) Her father was Albert C. White born in Nova
Scotia. Her mother was Jennie Pickard.

I found a LeBlanc family connection that my
dad remembered as soon as I mentioned the name
change. I don't have proof for the connection yet
but I believe Albert's father was Daniel LeBlanc.

Alberta had a brother and sister that lived to
adulthood. May White and Stanley White. May
never married. Alberta married Alton Taylor.
I can't remember Uncle Stan's wife.

Do you have any information on Wesley White? I think my great-grandfather's name was Wesley White. His children were Lonnie (my grandfather), Barry, Frank, Floyd, Walter, Fred, and a sister possibly named Olla or Ora Mae.

Hi Mary...I've been tracing my grandmother's lineage only a short time now, but there were Castine sisters who married White's and LeBlancs.
Albert White m. Ida Emily Castine
Eddie LeBlanc m. Louise Castine
My grandmother, Rita White, married into the Castle family, which has nezpez or Cherokee in their background.
Either the White's or Castine's had Mic Mac indian in their heritage. I think it was on the Castine side, from some old pictures I have.....-Cath :)

My great grandfather, James William White, had a brother named Wesley, born ca 1877? Their parents were James W and Sallie Brewer White. Wesley married Amanda Jame Meadows ca 1900 He is buried in Pleasant grove cemetary near Choudrant. I have seen the name Wesley a few times in various census and it may have been used by many brothers for their children. James and Wesley had a brother John, Henry and sisters Molley (married to IJE Hollaway) and Naomie(married to Jeff Holloway) Does any of this tie in for you?
