Then there were the Whites, who settled near the Three Forks sometime in
the twenties. They were likewise from Tennessee. Among them were John,
Absalom, Moses and Isaac. All of them were much respected. With the
exception of Moses, who passed his latter days in Montgomery county, they
all found a resting place beneath Pike county sod. Isaac served as Judge
of the Pike county court. The Whites have descendants scattered through
Pike, Clark, Hempstead, Howard and adjoining counties, almost as numerous
as the leaves of the forest.

Isaac White married into the Dickson family ... David Campbell married a
sister of the other White boys. Uncle Davy Campbell, as he was always
called, came to the State in the early twenties. He lived for many years
in Washington. He was an honest, industrious man and much respected. His
son, Jerome Campbell had a number of sons, all of whom are good citizens
and honest men. Uncle Davy Campbell died in Clarksville, Texas shortly
(after) the war. The Whites, as wells as Messrs. Campbell were all noted
