The White Family

I am posting this query in full in case the original link should ever fail for any reason.

The link comes from ancestry.com and Celia Page.

This page connects both the White and Brown families on Benjamin Rush's paternal and maternal sides. The marriage of Celia Page and Henry White produced, among others, Jessie White, father of Mary White who married William Head Pearson. It also produced Lucy White who would marry James N. Brown. Their daughter Elizabeth marries James Madison Pearson, father to Benjamin Rush.

If  I am in error, I can remove the post.
