Scope and Content Note

The Beaty White Family Papers consist of photocopies of personal correspondence, deeds and land grants, and financial and tax records (including the sale of slaves) dating from 1838 through 1919. The majority of the records pertain to Ann Hutchison White (1805-1880) and the White and Hutchison Family of Rock Hill, SC during the American Civil War. Of particular interest is a copy of the New York Supreme Court ruling (Helen R. Mason vs. Eugene Hutchison and Ann White) on June 22, 1864 concerning the estate of Ann's brother Hiram Hutchison who died in 1856. The case involved a substantial amount of money and was presided over by Hon. Henry A. Foster. Ann lived in the White Home, which is a current tourist attraction, and was one of the first constructed in Rock Hill. White Street in the Rock Hill downtown area was named in the family's honor. Family names of the persons mentioned in the records include: George Pendleton White (1801-1849); Ann Hutchison White (1805-1880); Hiram Hutchison (?-1856); Capt. Adolphus Eugene Hutchison (1826-1905); Rev. James Spratt White (1841-1891); Beatty Jennings White, Sr. (1887-1944);

Provenance

The White Family Papers were donated to the Archives by Beatty Jennings White, Jr. (1923-2008) in October 2006.
