Warner White - Canada (English)
I was doing some research for a friend and found her grand father Warner White listed on the 1880 and 1900 census in Salem, Ohio, his place of birth is listed as Canada English.
The 1900 census states he is 38 yrs old, born on Aug. 1861; he immigrated to the US in 1870; has been living in the US for 30 years and Naturalized.
The 1880 census lists him with his mother Louise White along with his 3 other siblings (Richard M.; Annie, and Charles L.). All the children are said to have been born in Canada..with the mother Louise said to have been born in Virginia. There is no father listed, but he is also said to have been born in Virginia (I believe that I found Warner twice on the 1880, there is a Warner and Richard White born in Canada boarding in the home of one George Bircaw and working as Miners in Elkrum Ohio)
I have not found them yet in 1870.....not sure if they arrived after the census was taken in 1870.
According to the friend there might be a UGRR connection. I have ordered a book on AA's in Salem, Ohio, but have not received yet. Any suggestions on how I should proceed with the Canadan connection, this area is new to me.
Thanks for any assistance.
