White Deed In McKeesport, Pennsylvania

I originally thought that this deed involved members of Jim's family (children of James White) from the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, area, but now have serious doubts:

Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, Deeds
1667-83 through 1667-88
Thomas L. White, etux

Between Thomas L. White and Mabel, his wife, of McKeesport, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, of the first part and James E. White, of the same place....

Other property (p85 - Annie White by her will - she died 14 November 1903  Will Book Volume 77, page 125) See also suit claim deed from James E. White to said Thomas L. White  Deed Book 1313, page 297

Some of the birthplaces listed in the 1910 census don't jibe with Jim's family members.  This 1880 census page seems to contain the correct Whites, who are not Jim's family.
