HOME
Mary Miranda White was born January 25, 1815 in Middleton, New Jersey.

Mary descends from early American pilgrams such as Ralph and Joyce Wallen who came to America on the ship Anne. Anne was one of four Mayflower ships (Mayflower, Anne, Fortune, and Little James).
A "division of cattle" was made in New Plymouth Colony 1 Jun 1627. Ralph and Joyce Wallen were assigned to the thirteen-member Company of Francis Eaton. In the "division of cattle" their group was given "an heyfer of the last yeare called the white belyed heyfer and two shee goats." New Plymouth Colony stood alone in New England for 13 years, from 1620-1633. Outside the small colony, a vast territory belonged to the Indians.
In 1633 the Feemen of Plymouth were listed and Ralph Wallen was on the list. He was also on the Plymouth Colony tax list for 1631/33. In 1633/34 the name "Widow Wallen" replaced the name of her deceased husband. Joyce continue to live in Plymouth until she sold her land on 7 Sep 1643. She had lived in Plymouth for 20 years.

Mary also descends from Penelope Von Princis Stout, a well-known early American settler. While New York was in Possession of the Dutch during the Peguot Indian War, a Dutch Ship from Amsterdam was stranded on Sandy Hook. Penelope and her husband were among the passengers. The Ship was attacked by the indians and all the passengers were butchered after they had got ashore except Penelope Von Princis. Her husband was killed and her skull was fractured, her stomach was cut and her left shoulder hacked so that she could no longer use her left arm well. The Indians left some fire on the beach and this she kept burning for warmth. She was discovered by two indians who took care of her untill she was healed. Later she was rescued by the Dutch from New Amsterdam. Here she met Richard Stout and soon afterwards married him. They later were amoung the first six families to settle Middletown, New Jersey.
