Notes for James Allen Walters:
James' mother died and after his father remarried, his stepmother did not want to raise James and his sister, Cassandra. They went to live with their uncle, Allen bishop. In 1850 their names appear on the Texas census records in the household of Allen Bishop.

The family settled in East Texas, Newton County, where James lived in Call Junction. He was a farmer. He was married three times.

James liked to hunt and was known to have hunted bear in East Texas. He was a member of the Masonic Lodge and served as a school trustee of the Suddeth Bluff School District in Newton County. He used a cane made with an animal bone on the end for the hand support.

He served in the Confederate Army to the rank of Corporal (Company A, 13th Texas Cavalry, C.S.A.) enlisting on February 14, 1862. He later received pension number 10718 from the Confederate States of America.

An oft told family story tells that while living with his son, Suddeth, he was cutting firewood with a double blade axe. He had sent all of the grandchildren out of the yard, but Gertrude walked up behind him and not knowing she was there, he nicked her chin with the axe. She bore the scar all her life.

      54. Eddins (Edwin?) White, born July 06, 1820 in East Feliciana Parish, LA; died January 17, 1906 in Madisonville (Madison), TX. He was the son of 108. John White and 109. Lydia Morgan. He married 55. Mildred McKinzie 1875.

      55. Mildred McKinzie, born Abt. 1842 in MS; died December 29, 1888.

Notes for Eddins (Edwin?) White:
Eddins White was known to all as Grandpa White. He was born in East Feliciana Parish, Louisiana on July 6, 1820. In 1840 he moved into Jasper County, Texas and from there to North Grimes County and later to Madison County where he lived about twenty-five years in the Cottonwood Community. he was a farmer.

Eddins White was married three times. His first wife was Miss Bettie Rogers (m. 1841-d.1873). In 1875 he married Mrs. S. M. (Mildred McKinzie) Burrows who died in 1888. In 1889 he married his third wife Mrs. C. A. Carr. I do not know her maiden name. Eddins White was a very benevolent man; besides his 18 children (17 sons, 1 daughter) he is known to have taken into his home about 40 orphans. His love for children was very great; he fed, clothed and schooled 58 children.

He was a deacon in the Baptist church and was a member of the Masonic fraternity. He died at his home on January 17, 1906 after having been bedridden and in pain for about four months. The Masonic fraternity conducted his funeral on January 18, 1906. He is buried in the Madisonville Cemetery.

The children he had with Mildred Burrows were Ernest, Perciville, William and his only daughter, Leila Ellen White. He used a cane made from a tree limb that had a natural crook on the end.

A family story tells of the death of one of his children. It was hot summertime and some of the boys had put a watermelon in the well to cool. His young son decided to move the ladder so no one could take the melon and a freak accident occurred flipping him into the well and his family found him drowned.

The above information is from Ruby Wilkinson James, Bryan, TX.

A second source (off of the internet) lists Eddins name as Edwin.
