Mildred Thornton Ballenger & John Martin White
27 Jan 1743: John Martin White was born, the son of Jeremiah White (8 Oct 1695 - 25 Oct 1776) and Mary Clark Martin (19 Apr 1709 - 23 Sep 1796).
The John Martin White family bible has a birth date for Mildred Thornton Ballenger of 23 Oct 1767, yet the same source has her "aged 84 years" upon her death in 1840. The bible also has a marriage date of 29 May 1775, which would make Milley an eight year old bride. If we assume the age at death to be exactly correct, then the birth year would be 1756. This is in fact the birth year claimed in the Georgia Roster of the NSDAR, Quaker Yeoman, and Reeves. [Austin, Georgia Bible Records, p. 121; Wulfeck, Marriages of Some Virginia Residents, p. 178; Quaker Yeoman, p. 80b, copy provided by Virginia Paddock; Reeves, Three Centuries of Ballingers in America, p. 22]
29 May 1775: Milly and John were married in VA. [Austin, p. 121; Reeves, p. 22]
John White, the son of Jeremiah and Mary Martin White, served as a Militia Captain in the Revolution. After the war he became a Baptist minister. [NSDAR Patriot Index, p. 736; Wulfeck, The Virginia Gazette; Cheryl Manley]
21 May 1782: "Milley" received a deed of gift from her father Joseph for one slave named Emy. The latter was not recorded until 21 May 1782 in Pittsylvania County. That day, John and Reuben White witnessed a deed of gift from Joseph Ballinger to Charity Cox Ballinger in Pittsylvania County, VA. [Deed Book 6, p. 329-331]
1785: John and Milly White were charter members of Van's Creek Baptist Church in Ruckersville, Elbert County, GA. [Frank Nicholas Wansley, "Van's Creek Baptist Church", Georgia Journal, Dec/Jan, p. 27, copy provided by Cheryl Manley]
6 Feb 1796: John was "one of the ministers constituting the presbytery that officiated at the organization of the Holly Springs Church". [Ada White Hartley, "90 Years of Memories: The White Family History]
8 Oct 1808: Brother John White and Brother John Carroll cited Sister Franky Ward for the "disorder" of wearing a feathered bonnet. [Frank Nicholas Wansley, "Van's Creek Baptist Church", Georgia Journal, Dec/Jan, p. 28, copy provided by Cheryl Manley]
The Martin home in what was Elbert County, but is now Hart County, GA, was located five miles southwest of Hartwell on the headwaters of Beaverdam Creek. Built of "hewed" logs with huge rock chimneys, it was still standing when Emma Reeves wrote her genealogy in the mid-seventies. The Wades also owned land on Beaverdam Creek in Elbert County.
6 Feb 1833: John Martin White, "aged 90", died in Elbert County. [Austin, p. 123; Reeves, p. 22]
1840 Census, Elbert County, GA: Milly White was listed with 1 male 20-30, 1 female 15-20, 1 female 20-30, 1 female 80-90; 12 slaves; with 6 persons in agriculture. They were enumerated next to son Eppy White. [p. 184]
2 Sep 1840: Mildred Thornton Ballenger White died, "aged 84 years". [Austin, p. 123; Reeves, p. 22]
John and Milly were buried in the family graveyard just south of their home in Elbert County.
Children of Mildred Thornton Ballenger and John Martin White: Entries in the John Martin White family bible, which would normally be the primary source, are confusing. Moreover, other sources often differ from it. Wulfeck, The Virginia Gazette, for example, claims that Milley had only seven children, Reeves eleven; and dates often seem to have been cherry picked. All those below are therefore to be viewed skeptically.
Reuben White (3 Mar 1776 - 22 Feb 1820; m. Betsy Head 12 Nov 1798)
Betsy was the daughter of James and Elizabeth Powell Head.
Sarah Franklin White (10 Apr 1777 - Oct 1856; m. John Morris 30 Oct 1793)
Mary "Polly" Martin White (16 Nov 1778 - ; m. William Morris 8 Dec 1796)
Quaker Yeomen and Reeves claim that Polly married a William Jones, who died on 6 Jan 1838. To complicate matters further, daughter "Polly Tonyhay" was given a list of articles by John White.
John White (5 Jul 1780 - 9 Jun 1781)
In the Jeremiah White Bible at the Virginia Historical Society, his death date is given as 13 Dec 1789.
Elizabeth Johnston White (18 Feb 1782 - 9 Jan 1789)
Two death dates are given in the White Family Bible: 13 Dec 1789 and 9 Jan 1789. In both instances she was identified as the "daughter of John and Milley White". The former date was given in the Jeremiah White Bible as the death date of John White.
Nancy Kidd White (23 Jan 1787 - ; m. Jesse Mann 2 Feb 1801)
Reeves supplies a birth date of 22 Jan 1785 and Quaker Yeomen claims that Nancy married Asa Mann on 24 Jan 1810. See Betsy White below.
Lucy Thornton White (23 Feb 1787 - 25 Jan 1837; m. Thomas Thornton 25 Dec 1805)
Patsy Gaines White (25 Dec 1788 - 16 Nov 1821; m. Martin White 2 Feb 1807)
Quaker Yeomen and Reeves claim that her name was Patsy Johnson White. and give a marriage date of 2 Feb 1807.
Eppe White (16 Mar 1792 - 19 Sep 1854; m. Catherine Herndon 11 May 1815)
Eppe was supposedly an officer in Captain Patterson's company during the War of 1812. [Reeves, p. 53]
Elizabeth Johnston White (17 Feb 1794 - 8 Jan 1830; m. Richard Rice 1 Jan 1822)
She was born five years after the death of the first child of that name. Reeves assigns a birth date of 16 Aug 1800.
Betsy White ( - 14 Nov 1831; m. Asa Mann 25 Jan 1810)
The Jeremiah White Bible has a birth date of 7 Feb 1793 for "Betsy Johnston White". Quaker Yeomen claims that Nancy Kidd White, rather than Betsy, was the wife of Asa Mann.
Frances "Frankie" White (14 Jul 1795 - Oct 1822; m. Robert Roebuck 27 May 1810)
Robert Roebuck also died in Oct 1822, although the White Family Bible lists the date as 28 Apr 1829.
John Martin White (23 Feb 1798 - 31 Mar 1840; m. Elizabeth Harper, 26 Dec 1810)
Elizabeth was the daughter of Charter and Nancy Kidd Harper.
Charity Cox Ballenger & Reuben Tarrant
20 Apr 1763: Reuben Tarrant was born in Virginia, the son of Leonard and Mary Tanksersley Tarrant. [Reeves, Three Centuries of Ballingers in America, p. 23] The Tankersleys were reportedly neighbors of the Ballengers near Beaver Creek and the Tobacco Row Mountains. We've also seen the Tankersley surname in association with the Johnstons of Charlotte and Henry Counties.
14 Jun 1764: Charity was born. [Austin, Georgia Bible Records, p. 121; Reeves, p. 23]
Although the Patriot Index lists only Patriotic Service for him, Reuben's supposed to have been a soldier in the Revolutionary War, serving under Col. Holt Richardson at Malvern Hills.

5 May 1787: Achelus Ballinger married Milley Hudson in Amherst County, permission being given by both fathers, Joseph Ballinger and Joshua Hudson. Witnesses: Samuel Ballinger, John Taliaferro, Sam Franklin, Joshua Hudson Junior and William Smith. [Marriage Record, p. 36; Sweeny, Marriage Bonds and Other Marriage Records of Amherst County, Virginia 1763-1800, p. 7, 397; Reeves, p. 23] Samuel Franklin was his uncle; but who was Samuel Ballinger? Could they have meant Samuel Johnston, his brother-in-law?

1789: Achillis witnessed, along with Joseph Gravely, a deed from John Booth to John Burch on Leatherwood. [Adams, Abstracts of Deed Books 5 & 6 of Henry County, Virginia 1792 -1805, p. 81. This deed must have been proved after 1792, or my source citation is incorrect.]
7 Apr 1789: He mortgaged 325 acres and one slave to the merchants Calland and Smith for £75. The witnesses included Samuel Johnston. [Adams, Abstracts of Deed Books 3 & 4 of Henry County, Virginia 1784-1792, p. 103]
1790: Archellus Ballinger was declared insolvent in Henry County. The list of insolvent property returned by the Sheriff included "1 Do and 1 Negro". [Adams, Abstracts of Deed Books 3 & 4 of Henry County, Virginia 1784-1792, p. ___]
He apparently moved back to Amherst County after this declaration of insolvency. Reeves has daughter Charity being born in Garrard County, KY in 1792, but the family apparently didn't move to KY until 1796.

1 Apr 1795: Milley Ballenger, wife of "Archellus Ballenger" released her right of dower to 425 acres in Henry County sold to William Bayles. [Adams, Abstracts of Deed Books 5 & 6 of Henry County, Virginia 1792 -1805, p. 38]
1796: He moved his family to newly-formed Garrard County, KY. [Reeves, p. 23]
