Notes on Research in progress regarding WHITE ancestors in Lancaster County, PA

What we know:

TIMELINE:

1749: James WHITE's birth year estimated from grave marker

1776: Jacob WHITE was born November 10, 1776 near Faggs Manor, Chester County, PA 

1783-1784 Mary WHITE, daughter of James and Elizabeth (GIBSON) WHITE was born evidenced by the sampler she created in 1795, which states at the bottom Mary WHITE, her work done in the eleventh year of her age - 1795.

Names of Grandparents per sampler:
William WHITE
Margaret WHITE
John GIBSON
Elizabeth GIBSON

Names of parents per sampler: 
James WHITE
Elizabeth WHITE

Names of children per sampler:
Margaret WHITE
John WHITE
Jacob WHITE - my ancestor
Elizabeth  WHITE
Mary WHITE - "her Work done in the eleventh year of her age - 1795"
William WHITE
Jain (Jean) WHITE
Nancy WHITE

1815: James WHITE, father of Jacob WHITE died August 06, 1815 in Drumore Twp., Lancaster County, PA and was buried in Chestnut Level Lower Cemetery. His grave marker stated "age 66 years." See photos of grave marker. So James was born about 1749.


1  William WHITE  b: in Information from Sampler  + Margaret  b: in Information from Sampler

NOTE: a biographical sketch published about Hugh White (son of Thompson, Jacob, James, William) states "he traces his ancestry back to William White, who was of Scotch descent and lived in the north of Ireland. He eloped with Miss Jane CAMPBELL, who belonged to the Clan Campbell and was the daughter of a nobleman who lived in Ireland and was opposed to the marriage." I do not know if this William White married both Jane Campbell and later Margaret or if one is an ancestor of the other.

 http://pa-roots.com/lancaster/cemetery/chestnut.html

A Jane CAMPBELL is listed on  http://pa-roots.com/lancaster/cemetery/chestnut.html as having died 3 Jan 1805 and Patrick CAMPBELL, died 14 Feb 1817, at 75 years of age CAMPBELL, Martha - Died Oct. 9, 1741 age 67 yrs. They are buried at the same cemetery as James WHITE below. We'd like to research the possibility that they are related. Perhaps Jane CAMPBELL is the first wife of William WHITE? Or perhaps she and Patrick CAMPBELL are cousins to our WHITE ancestors? Also tax list for Drumfore township, Lancaster county ,Pa. for the year of 1815 lists "WHITE, James Land adjoining Robert CLARK, James McPHERSON, William ANKRIM and others 82 acres" (unsure if this is MY James WHITE) 

 The cemetery list posted by Southern Lancaster County Historical Society, http://www.rootsweb.com/~paslchs/clpceml.html, lists numerous ANKRIM family members including a Margaret ANKRIM. Granted Margaret is a common name, but it was so common for women to marry the sons of neighboring farmers, I would like to research more about this family.
