My gg grandmother Evaline WHITE married G. W. M. DUCK in Wayne county on 4 Feb 1849. The DUCKs were from Pulaski. My problem is that I don't know Evaline's parents. The most likely family seems to be that of James WHITE of Wayne county, but I have no proof. G. W. M. and Evaline moved to Texas in the early 1850s (after a few years in Pulaski). For a time in Texas, a Sidney WHITE lived with them. He was of an age to be her brother.

I would appreciate anything you can tell me about the Wayne county WHITEs.
