Generation No. 1
1. William Chester White , son of John White and Sarah Edwards, was born May 08, 1820 in Vernon/Utica, Oneida County, New York, and died August 22, 1870 in Winneshiek County, Iowa after suffering a stroke in the spring. He married Betsey Ann White August 27, 1845 in New York. Betsey was the daughter of George Kilbourne White and Mary Strong. Betsey was born January 24, 1828 in Chatham, Middlesex County, Connecticut, and died December 14, 1876 in Winneshiek County, Iowa. The family moved to Wisconsin in the spring of 1853 and eventually settled on a farm near Colom, Wisconsin. William served in the Civil War, enlisting in Company E, 16th Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry. Afterward, he always wore the number 16 made from a ten-cent piece on his hat.William and Betsey are buried at Hesper Public Cemetery, Winneshiek County, Iowa.
The following is from a letter written by Sarah Jane "Jennie" White Mclaughlin, daughter of William Chester and Betsy Ann White.
"Our father was a natural born seaman. He loved to be on the water more than any other place. He loved the ocean through the inheritance of his seafaring forefathers, but as a child he was brought up on a farm, or came up rather. His father passed from his bodu when William Chester was very small. and I doubt if he remembered anything about him, that is why I say 'he came up." He was a very self willed child, always wanted to do the very thing he thought best for himself. His mother was left with quite a family of little children and not much means to do with and our father was put to some rather hard tasks when quite small. I remember father telling how he was locked in a in a neighbor's corn crib and put to shelling corn for the pay of some work the neighbor was doing for his mother, bu lo and behold he had not been there very long util he came running through the door with the remoark "I amf not gooing to stay there any longer". His mother said, "why Chester, how is this?" and little Chester said "I just climbed out over the top". And another circumstance, when father was small, he did not like to go to school. Grandma would walk a half-mile to the school house with little Chester and when she came home again, he would be trailing close behind her -- no more school for that day. He was of a vey self-reliant temperament and above all a very good boy. We may note that hen hegot into tight places he always came home, so we can readily understand that he had great confidence and great love for his mother. He was thrown upon his own resources was when quite young which developed those qualities that gave independence and self reliance and great love of liberty. He would stand by his honest convictions of right under all cirircumstances. The thought of fear held no place in his nature. Our father's motto always was to do right and do good. He was liberal and his religious view; he allowed others to form their own judgments in regard to their own convictions of rightand he claimed for himself the same right in every way.
I never knew my father to use tobacco in any form or any kind of intoxicating drink or liquors. He was, as the saying goes, always, tending to business and all his life he was what is best known as a selmade man. He was a great student and a great reader, well-versed in music and a leader in church and Sabbath school work, and a soldier. Who knows of the heartthrobs of a farmer who volunteers to leave home and wife and little children to go fight for home and country? Who knows the responsibility that he takes upon himself when he puts on the uniform and goes to the front to help the cause of of freedom? Who can tell if the dear ones left at home will ever see their father again in mortal form? Who can tell if their dear father shall come home wounded and broken in health until those dear ones who have waited his coming will never see the same dear father that went away full of life and health? Who can tell how much he suffered without complaint until in a few shortyears he was obliged to go to the great beyond and leave all of those little children and a broken home without a father's ptotecting care and dear mother with a little five-months-old baby in her arms to face the world alone with all of those little ones and the older children to guide and counsel. What wonder she broke down young and left all those children and went to thegreat world of peace and rest. But some say "Such is life, but what a life" and we might also add, "what a death." To die for our country -- as millions have done -- is there not a better way to adjust the wrongs of our country without depriving little children of a father's care?
Our father was among the first to enlist in the Regiment of Wisconsin -- to answer the first call of our country in the spring of 1861. He joined Company E, 16th Regiment of Wisconsin Volunteers to answer the first call of our country in the Spring of 1861. He joined Company E, 16th Regiment of Wisconsin Volunteers with Chales White as Captain leaving those growing boys to run our little farm and Chester onlt 14 and Monroe 12 years of age. And so many little ones to care for. Our mother did a great deal of spinning and coloring in those days for all of the girls' resses and under clothing and the boys' suits and white flannel sheets and and spinning and coloring for all of our stockings and mittens to be knit of course. Florence and I kint our own as soon as we were old enough but I have often wondered how our mother did so much spinning and coloring and so much work in geting the yarn all ready to send to the weavers, and then when the cloth came home to be made uup by hand with no sewing machine to help sew up the seams.
Father always kept a flock of sheep to supply the family with woool for our clothing after he came to Wsconsin the spring of 1853 just a few months before I was born. Father and mother with three little children, Chester, Monroe and Florence came from Vernon, New Yor State and eventually settled at Colom, Wisconsin on a farm, I think of about 70 or 80 acres. I can remember father when I was very small cutting great fields of wheat with a cradle and Chester, following him and binding up the sheaves.
When I was small. I used to love to be with Father in the field more than any other place, especially at harvest time, and as soon as I was old enough to help to carry the sheaves together, or as we used to call it, carrying bundles. This was brother George's and my work and in the spring there was so much to be done in sowing and planting. . I can remember our father going back and forth across the field sowing wheat by hand; all the sowing and planting was done by hand, and Chester and Monroe starting to the field with hoes on their shoulders and a sack of seed corn tied to their belts to plant corn. Sometimes George and I went with them and dropped the corn for them to cover with the hoe. And in the fall to help to husk the corn and after the potatoes were dug out of the hills we children always helped to pick them up and put them in the wagon box to store the cellar for winter use. I always loved to be in the field and to work out of doors.
Father always had plenty of everything to eat, and his household well provided for and such a large family, seven born in Wisconsin. But one dear little sister was taken from us by that awful disease diphtheria, which came into our family in the summer of 1864. The next day after her little body was laid in the grave yard, Florence and I were taken violently ill. The disease ran through the whole family of children -- my life was despaired of and I was very delirious. I remember one remark they told me I had made, "I am going to leave you, you may stay down here. I am going to heaven," but my time was not yet. Sister Eva was born July 11, 1861. She joined the blessed host of angels, July 15, 1864. This was my first grief, my first real sorrow in losing this on, though I have learned in later years of my life not to grieve ovr much because I know they are all in that great haven of peace where I shall join them.
Just a few weeks after sister Eva left the body, a vision came to me at night. I was in the garden, sister Eva was there are all robed in white walking in the garden. I saw her as plain as I ever did -- at that time I was a little past ten years of age. But after seeing her and positively knowing that she was alive, it took away the greater part of my grief.
From my earliest recollection when I was very small, not more than five years of age, I remember our father as a Sabbath School teacher and superintendent of the classes of the Sunday school and the catechism and our little New Testaments that father bought for us to learn the verses, and I can remember Papa's smiling face as he stood before the children, so many of us, from our school district, our little school house was nearly filled with happy children to hear those lessons explained, and happy fathers and mothers too learning and singing those beautiful songs.
Father and mother migrated in the spring of 1866 as the land in Wisconsin grew to be very poor. Father felt it very necessary to make a change, so we all came to Iowa with two covered wagons with household goods and a herd of cows and cattle. We were on the road coming about a week. I remember how tired Iwas drdiving cattle, so glad when our jouney was ended -- and little Willie only a few months old and Josie and Vinnie less than three years old.
We came to Burr Oak, Winneshiek County, Iowa and went onto a rental farm near that was called the Rollins Schoolhouse, and father true to his high ideals, organized a Sabbath school and such a success it was, not very long until this old school house was filled with young and men and women and children. He took up collections and sent and bought new singing books aand a sabbath school library, and Oh, how he trained Florence and me in learning those new hymns. It was a new thing to have a Sabbath school in the district and everybody wanted to go. Our mother's whole heart was in father's Sabbath school work, but it was not so that she could go very often on account of the little children at home. The next year father rented a farm, called the Pike Farm two miles west of Hesper and about seven miles east of Burr Oak. This was a rather large farm and kept father in Chester and Monroe verey busy.
There were some advantages to be taken where we lived. Chester, Monroe, and Florence attended the winter school in Hesper. Father would drive the team in the morning and take them to school and go and bring them home at night. I had attended the summer school in our district, while Florence stayed at home and worked. When winter came, I helped mother at home, and Florence went to school.
Father always drove to Hesper Sunday mornings to church and Sabbath school as he was superintendent of the Sunday school and a singer and helper in the church exercises, always busy, where ever he was, and doing the best he could for his family in every way. and our mother was just the same as in the Palm, no task too great for her to do, always busy, and so many to do for and not very strong. In this home was where brother Frank was born in May 1868.
In the course of time father bought a farm of 80 acres, about three fourths of a mile west of the Rollins school house and two miles north and three fourths of a mile west of the town of Burr Oak on the south side of the road, running south. On the west side was a beautiful stream of water and just below the house a little way was a splendid spring down to the west. Our house was made of logs with a good big chamber, not a large house, but we were all made comfortable. In this house was where Ida was born. Here we all had a chance to go to school both summer and in winter. When it was stormy or the snow drifting or very cold, Father would hitch the team to the long sled and take us to school, but if the roads were good, we would always walk.
I remember one cold snowy morning Father hitched up to take us to school. We were going along merrily in the long sled. Father had a swift team of horses and they liked to go. Along came our neighbor who lived right at the west of us, with his sleigh load of children on their way to school also. He had a good team, and he took pride in showing what they could do. When he pulled out to go by, father let loose on the reins and the fun began, and for nearly one half mile both teams were going as hard as t hey could go and the snow a-flying in every direction, but father won out and was the first to the schoolhouse. The neighbor's daughter, about my own age, tried to excuse and said her Pa was in a hurry. I told that when my father saw that her father was in a hurry he got out of his way as fast as he could. Father would not be imposed on under any circumstances, and many of his children have the same trait of character in regard to personal rights.
Father's constantly failing health made it impossible for him to do all that he would like to and then his wounded hand, so stiff and helpless, a bullet wound he had received in the war had shattered his hand so that he was never able to close it, although he could use it sound, being his left hand. But it was very tender to the cold in the winter and helpless in many ways. Father never enjoyed health after he came home from the war, like he did before, but he kept pressing forward without complaint. And again after moving to our own farm, Father joined the Sabbath school at the Benedict school house four miles east from home and worked this Sunday school up to the time of his last illness. Being superintendent, it was necessary for him to be there. I can remember how ill father looked the last time he went there to Sabbath school and not able, it seemed to me, to drive so far.
Ida was born May 18, 1870. In the spring of 1870 father's health was very poor, and still he helped to put in the crops in the spring, and worked through harvest and stacking. I remember carrying bundles all through harvest and pitching bundles to father on the stack. Father got so tired. It was more than he should have done. In the early spring it was Sister Florence's wish to work away from home, and Mother's sickness when Ida was born in father's ill health made it pretty hard for Mother an me to keep everything going through the spring, and summer and fall, after stacking was over, it was not a very long until father was too ill to sit up. When he was so sick and his tongue so paralyzed that we could hardly tell what he was saying, he sang the hymn : When we've been there 10,000 years, bright shining as the sun, leave no less days, to sing thy praise than when we first begun. (William had had a stroke.)
In a few short days father passed on to the higher life. late in September 1870. He laid down all earthly cares and toil and hard labor went for, a home filled with happiness for all of those dear ones who ha. This is the greeting of all earnest toilers who have given thei who have labored in the great harvest field of love for the glory and freedom of human souls.
Just a few days after her father's transition Florence was married and began housekeeping for herself, and it made quite a change in the family. She was 19, and I was 16. She had always been mother's mainstay up to within a year or two of her marrriage. As soon as she was old enough to work and to help, she kept the house and helped take care of the little ones and so many children and such a large family -- we had to help, too. I was always busy, either in the house or in the field helping Father, whatever there was to be done. Mother was not strong enough to do hard labor, and so many children to mend for and to sew for, it was enough to keep her busy, not to mention the cooking and washing and ironing for all of the family. Mother most always did the baking for the household, since my earliest remembrance and preparing the meats and sauces for winter use. At this time a little Ida was only a few months old and brother Frank two years old and little Willie only four and Josie and Vinny not yet seven when our mother was left alone with all those dear children, and Mary only 11 and George 13 years of age. What a change in our home, so different than before. Pity children who have to grow up to manhood and womanhood without a father's help to train them in the right way. Children that grow up in this way are not the same as those who who have a father's loving care to guide them.
In the spring of 1873. We all left the farm and moved to Hesper. Chester had rented the farm from Mother and was married and moved on to the farm. In the spring of 1875, our mother's relatives in Connecticut urged her to come east for an extended visit. mother went starting about the 15th of May with the idea to take a long needed rest and to see those dear sisters and brother that she had not seen for many years. I gladly volunteered to stay at home and care for the younger children and to keep them in school until Mother's return, which was late in November. Mary was home also and we got along with the work very nicely. I always look back with gladness when I think that Mother had the opportunity of making that visit.
The next spring Mother moved onto the farm again. In the fall, Mother sold the farm and bought a home in Hesper, known as the Frank Jones place. This was a nice little home and very comfortable with plenty of room upstairs and down. In the early winter, the measles swept through the school. Some of the younger children came down with the measles and then Mother came down with pneumonia, and just at that time the rest of the family came down with the measles. I cared for mother as long as I could until I was obliged to go to bed. Mother was very ill and there were five of us all sick in bed at the same time. Before we were hardly aware of how ill our dear mother was, she was taken from us.
She had left all that was mortal and had gone forth into immortality into a land where she would meet all of her own loved ones and with his heart so filled with love to greet her and take her in, a home of joy and peace and contentment and a home, which makes for supreme happiness.
Our mother passed to a higher life in December 1876 and once more I was left as housekeeper for our little flock, but not of long duration. Sister Mary was soon to be married and my wedding was set for the 26th day of February. Changes were coming for the last to breaking up of our household, a household that was held together by the bonds of a fathers and mothers love.
At home in January, Sister Mary was married to a young man by the name of Addison , and went immediately to keeping house for herself.
Aat home in the evening of the 26th day of February 1877, I was married to Samuel MacLaughlin, son of Joseph McLaughlin and Rachel McGarry from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania at the time living on a farm near Burr Oak, Iowa. My husband had bought a farm three fourths of a mile north and east of the four days after we were married. We moved into our own home, all of the joys of home life, once more, we have a rest with gladness and pleasure in our own nest.
