My White Family Ancestors


One of my maternal great-grandmothers is Nina Anna Statia White, born 16 Oct 1872, died 11 Feb 1957.  She married Maurice Dudding (b. 6 Mar 1869, d. 26 Oct 1929).  She was known variously as "Miss Dolly," "Dolly White," and "Dolly Dudding."  Her grandchildren and great-grandchildren called her "Nanny;"  I refer to her as Nanny throughout this website.

Nanny and her husband Maurice had nine children -- first were three sons then six daughters, one of whom died in infancy.  Her oldest daughter was my maternal grandmother, Annie Lee Dudding (1899-1983).  Annie Lee Dudding married Clarence J. Richardson (1896-1972) and their second child was my mother, Annie Lee Richardson (1924-2007).

My great-grandmother, "Nanny," Nina Anna Statia White (Dudding); 1872 - 1957.  This photo was made at the home of her daughter, Margerie Dudding Smith, in Baton Rouge, LA.

I inherited from my mother a number of items that belonged to Nanny.  For descriptions and photos of those heirlooms, go to these links:

White family lineage

I have done little research into my ancestors in the White family.  I know they moved from South Carolina to SE Louisiana -- East Feliciana Parish -- in the early 1800's.  They would have been part of a major migration of families from the Carolinas and Virginia to new land in the "West" -- Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, and Texas.

This is what I know of Nanny's genealogy -- I have not included brothers and sisters, only direct ancestors.
