I came here to see about my last name which is spelled "Whyte" I hope I count In the family! :D
My name is John White, Sr. I live the State of Maine and am presently exploring my family history. My greatgrand (5) mother's name was McKinney/McKenney (in some instances it the same name) most information states she was from N. Ireland possibly Ulster (Scot-Irish?)
She is reported to have been born around 1724-25, married a Nicholas White (who was killed by Indians) they had one son. She then married a Beveridge and lived in Vinalhaven, ME. Her fathers name is listed as Matthew McKenney/McKinney and he made his home in Georgetown, ME. I am not sure if they came right to Maine from Ireland or to one of the other states and then moved to Maine. Haven't seen much mention of the New England area here, but any information that comes to mind would be greatly appreciated
William White (Mayflower) is my 11th Great-grandfather. He died in Plymouth, only a few months after the Pilgrims arrived, during their first winter. The information is recorded in William Bradford's (1st Governor of the colony) journal. Wm. White was not buried in Virginia.
glad to be a white, whites are always right!

my mother is named white,they are all jewish,my father was named foster his family are all jewish,these to my understanding were given last names to hide our jewish identities,jewish people sometimes would also change their last names to colors to hide being jewish,my ancestors did it when the ones that escaped hitler did the same thing.we are also related to people with the last name green,brown ,black. as far as foster I do not know how we got that last name,we also have family with the last name paschal ,and also mordecai, a lot of our family records were destroyed at sometime on both sides of family,but that isn't nothing new to jewish people, I had a great grandfather named Andrew white,i don't think he or my grand father had middle names,i do know they all came from the eastern sea board at about the same time to the central and western united states.my other great grand father is named Hershel paschal,all this sounds confusing ? how do you think I feel lol
I always wondered where my surname originated. Good information!
