Jesse White served in the 2nd Virginia Regiment in the Revolutionary War, under Capt. Robert Woodson and Lt. Col. Samuel Hawes.
After War moved to Elbert Co, GA in 1789, then to Putnam GA where he owned land. He was granted a passport to Indian Territory in 1811 and was among Revolutionary Soldiers who were granted a section of land in what became Autauga County, Alabama. He was on the 1820 Putnam County, GA census, so we place his move to Alabama as 1821 when he settled in Day’s Bend in Autauga Co, where he died in 1839. He was a wealthy planter and owned about 2400 acres of Alabama river land.
Jesse and Elizabeth "Betsey" Brown were married about 1781 and had eleven children. Nine survived to be adults and married and had families. In an identure dated 28 Dec 1822 he named the nine children and how the nine parts of his estate would be divided.
