Who are the parents??? Mack Donald WHITE was born June 6, 1868, most likely in northern Giles Co, TN. He relocated to Greenville, Hunt Co., TX in the early 1890s, where he married Florence Edna MELTON October 11, 1896. He may have had a brother William and sister Lucy in the Greenville area. He may have had a sister Mattie back in the Campbell's Station area of Giles Co. A letter to him from his mother mailed from Culleoka, Maury Co, TN in 1910 lists her as N.J. White, although the N. may be another letter. Mack White moved his family to Woodlawn, Harrison Co., TX, where he died and is buried. He had children James Rome (died small child), Lena Estella, Ida Mae, Marvin Davis, Elmer Brodine, and Jessie Laura (died infant).
