EXPLANATIONS.

Through the kindness and financial assistance of the presi- dent of our association, Mr. J. B. White of Kansas City, Mo., I am able to send out this last volume of our family Genealogy. Though Mr. White is extensively engaged in Lumber and Bank- ing business in the South and West, as well as Deputy Governor General of Missouri, to the General Society of Colonial Wars. Yet since he learned of my work in 1894, he has been deeply interested in the history, genealogy and ancestry of the family and besides helping me, when the work has been too hard for one, he has also employed men in England to look up the ances- try of John, out emigrant ancestor, and we hope yet to be able to give you the benefit of his expenditures there.

Besides the 27,196, which are numbered in regular order in the three volumes, there are 808 in the first volume whose record was not received in season and had to be designated by letter ; 984 in the second and 735 in the third, making the birth or baptism of 29,723 in the three volumes ; adding the 1,833 whose record is found in the " White Family Quarterly," giving 31,556 descendants of John White.

I have used no unusual abbreviations, using those of months and states; b. born; bapt. baptized; d. died; p. page; vol. vol- ume ; dau. daughter.

I make no distinction in the male and female lines, except omitting the name of White when derived from our emigrant ancestor. Each member is numbered at birth, and when the name is followed by -J- it will be found again in its proper place with the birth number in a bracket at the right of the name. It no -|- follows, all I could learn is recorded at the birth. The small superior figures at the end of each name denotes the generation.

This volume contains branches from the fifth generation, is not complete without the first volume, which gives the first five generations, also the old homesteads, and many articles of interest, as well as a complete copy of Mrs. Mary (White) Row- landson's "Removes," giving her captivity among the Indians in 1676.

DOROTHY Whitcomb5 (685), b. in Lancaster, Mass., May 13, 1739; m. in Leominster, Mass., June 23, 1757, Stephen Johnson of Leominster. There is a tradition in the family that Mr. John- son was from Hingham, and of Scotch descent, but we have been unable, though making every effort possible, to connect him with the Hingham family or that of any of the other early families of Johnson. Our first knowledge of him is his baptism, as an adult, July 30, 1749, in First church, Lancaster. They lived in Leo- minster, on the place recently owned by the late Jonas Col burn on Pleasant street. He was a very public spirited man and held many offices of public trust, was town clerk from 1767 to 1775. We do not find the date of Mr. Johnson's death, but his will was written May 9, 1799, probated Jan. 5, 1808. Mrs. Johnson d. Nov. 20, 1804, aged 65. Children:

Mrs. Johnson d. in Leominster, Aug. 20, 1851, when it was said of her: "Mrs. Johnson, widow of Joseph, occupied part of the house bought by her husband of Obadiah Hills in 1785, the remainder being occu- pied by his son, Capt. Joseph Johnson ; was familiarly known as Aunt Huldah, being always a welcome guest in the families of her neighborhood. Many of the younger generation cherished grateful remembrance of her kindly service by way of nice needle- work (which with her was a fine art), in preparing table and bed linen for housekeeping. In time of sickness and bereavement she was a tender nurse and kind friend ; her gentle and sympa- thizing presence was ever a benediction to the afflicted." Children :
