White Family in Cross Creek, Jefferson Co., Ohio

This is not my WHITE family (as far as I can tell), although I am looking for James White (son of John & ?) who married Sarah Jones in Jefferson County, Ohio.

The Jefferson County, Ohio, Deed Book "S", Pages 373 & 374, is a transaction between John H. White, Margaret White and Eleanor White (widow of Richard White), grantors, to Thomas White, dated 15 January 1838.

An 1856 plat map of Cross Creek, Jefferson Co., Ohio, can be found at American Memory. It illustrated that T. White owned the NW (northwest) part of Section 26, T6, R2, per the deed shown above. [Go to American Memory, click on "Maps" and search for "Jefferson county Ohio 1856]. To see the plats close up, click on one of the two maps; "zoom in" to enlarge and then use the little "navigator view" to locate Cross Creek Twp. - blue on the colored map.

Other maps of the same deed location can be found at Jefferson Co., Ohio, Treasurer including the tax map [very faint] of Section 26, Twn 6, Range 2 of Cross Creek Township [Township #13]).

Thomas White might be the brother of William White whose will can be found here:

Jefferson Co., Ohio, will book:
1842; Pro. 22 May 1842
Page 398 William White
Brother Thomas White
Nephew John White
Nephew Richard White
Niece Margaret Henderson, formerly White
Half-sister, Margaret White
Witnesses: Jacob Neman and James McGuire
Executors: Charles Barnes and John Irvine

The Thomas White in the deed might also be the same Thomas White
listed in the Jefferson County Grave Registrations here and who served in
the War of 1812.
