About John Tipton White

Name given at birth was John Reuben Price, but it was changed following his adoption (presumably due to the deaths of his parents). Listed as John Price, age 6, in the 1850 census for Connersville Township.

BIOGRAPHY: John T White was adopted when a child by his uncle, Thomas White, and was reared by the latter. Thomas White inherited a part of the old Joel White place and bought the remainder, and the place fell to John T White upon the death of his adopted father. Thomas White moved into Connersville about 1860, John T White then being about seventeen years of age, and in the city the latter learned the trade of cabinet-maker and followed the same until 1897, when he returned to the farm where he was born and which had been entered from the government by his grandfather, Joel White, and there he spent the rest of his life as a farmer.
