Note: "The 1860 census shows P.D. White living in what was then Dyer County, Tennessee with an M.J. White (his wife, Malinda Jane Hall White along with five children." -- Sam Thompson "A search of the Dyer County Trustee's Office reveals that Peter Daucey White, Sr. bought one and one half acres of land in Dyer County from a W. W. Biggs on April 4, 1859, for the sum of $100. This deed was recorded on February 6, 1860 in Deed Book M, at page 115. This land was in the 1st civil district and "near the waters of the Pond Creec." This portion of Dyer county is now Crockett county, and I believe the land in question lies somewhere near present day Friendship, Tennessee. A further search of the Dyer county Registers office reveals that on December 5, 1866, the land was sold, apparently for delinquent taxes, for $350 to a T. S. Stallings." -- Sam Thompson "Confederate War Records (microfilm roll #311) show that Peter Daucey White enlisted in Company B of the 47th Tennessee Infantry on December 8, 1861, in Dyer County. Malinda applied for and actually received a Confederate Widow's Pension of $8.33 per month until her death in 1911. Malinda listed Peter Daucey White as his full name and gives his birth day. It further lists their place of marriage as Friendship, Tennessee by Parson Bolen Avery. Malinda states that they never got a marriage certificate from him." -- Sam Thompson "According to an affidavit from a commissioned officer of the 47th Tennessee Infantry Regiment, a B. H. Harmon, Peter Daucey White was sent home from Chattagnooga by army surgeons due to illness, listed as "dyspepsia," in July 1863 and died at the old home place on July 27, 1863 near a mineral well in Friendship, Tennessee." -- Sam Thompson
