|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).
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.
