Elizabeth is listed as the wife of William White on the 1850 Washington Co. OH census, however, in Emma (Yates) Scott's letter to Amy's great granddaughter [no date] Emma states that Amy (White) Johnson lived with her older sister Sarah (White) Hoffman after her mother died until she married. Amy married in 1845.  [Is Emma mistaken or do we have the wrong William White family? Was this Elizabeth a second wife?]
