IN SEARCH OF:
 I'm looking for any information on William H. White. He was probably born about 1884 in Richmond, VA. He was most likely a very light-skinned black man. From his union with Cora Wilson, they produced Percy E. White Sr. born March 31, 1900. At the time he fathered Percy Sr. he is believed to have lived at 2 Hill Street, in Richmond, VA.
