Updated/Edited: 10 Apr 2015

This is what I’ve learned about Grandpa Rust’s Great-Grandmother Eliza Maude White, beginning with her earliest known ancestor, William White from England. (Eliza Maude White is Aidan, Ashley and Haley’s 3rd great-grandmother, and William White is their 10th great-grandfather.)

Tradition says that he came from County Norfolk, England, but this has not been confirmed.  His ship landed at Ipswich, Essex, Massachusetts in 1635. In 1640 he removed to Haverhill, Essex, Massachusetts, of which he was one of the first settlers. He and Mary had only one child.
