1848 Odd Fellow of the Day Eaton J. White

Eaton J. WHITE was the first bookkeeper listed in this volume of the Washington Lodge No. 5 at Dresden Tennessee.  I believe this to be Eaton Jones White, born in North Carolina.  His parents were Joseph White and Nancy Mann.  His first wife was Catherine Reed Spears and they had the following children: John Spears White, Sophronia Ann Catherine White, Virginia Ellen White, Joseph Mann White, Edward James White and Mary Lacey White.  His second wife was Mary A. Neeley.  They had a daughter, Mary White.  His third wife was Martha H. Hill and their were no children from this marriage. Eaton and his wife Catherine are buried in the Liberty Cemetery, Dresden Tennessee.

This ledger page shows his payments starting with January 1 1848.  The last entry is 1854.  His payments went into the Orphan Fund and his quarterage fees.  On January 1 1852 he received $3.50 for his services as the Lodge Secretary and on the same date a fee of $1.20 was paid for stationary supplies.

Other names listed on this page:  J.D. AYDELOTT,  B.A. CRAWFORD, R.G. MOSS
