William White (1813-1880)
     William White was born circa 1 March 1813 in Lincolnshire, EnglandG.12,13,14,15,10 He was the son of Michael White and Mary Ann Brown.12,13,14,15,16,17,9,18 William married Amelia Millie Brown, daughter of William Brown and Frances Woodward, on 13 May 1844 in Ludborough parish, Lincolnshire, EnglandG.19,20,8,10,21 William died on 9 July 1880 in Ontario, CanadaG. This is my preferred date of death, based upon his gravemarker which gives the date as July 9, 1880.17,16,22 He was buried in Thornbury-Clarksburg Union Cemetery, Thornbury, Collingwood Twp., Grey County, Ontario, CanadaG.17,23
Alternatively, he died on 11 September 188024,6 or on 9 November 1880. Both are given by family sources, likely indicating confusion about date formats.15
     His name was also recorded as William S White.25 He was Baptised/Christened on 28 February 1813 in Ludborough, Lincolnshire, EnglandG.26,9 William White appeared on the 1841 British Census of enumerated 1841, The 1841 Census of Lincoln, Wapentake, Ludborough shows a William White, 25, born in the county. He was a man servant for George Rose, 50, a farmer in the county. Since census takers tended to round the ages of males to the nearest 5 years, the age is within the right range.

WHITE, William
1813-1880
The eldest of Michael and Mary Ann (Patchett) White's children, William emigrated to the Gore of Toronto in 1844. In about 1847 he moved to Collingwood Township with his brothers and sister. He settled on the south half of Lot 18, Concession 10.

Between the years 1855 and 1870 he served as Reeve of the municipal council eleven times. From 1873 to 1880 he served as Deputy Reeve. He died while holding that office.

In 1860 the township acquired a set of books to be distributed between five centres. He was appointed to "attend to the dividing and to distribute them."

In 1878, a new brick church was built to replace the original log structure located just north of it. The original was on land from Samuel White. This was also a Wesleyan Methodist Church and became known as White's Church. It closed in 1969. In 1884 it became the Methodist Church of Canada. In 1925 it joined the United Church of Canada.38
