The Internet, The Church of The Latter Day Saints, and my cousin Eloise Whitesell-Buchholz (White/Bolander), Cathy Nuzum (White), John Anderson (Brookie), Alan's 3rd cousin, P.J. Evans (White/Vincent) have made it possible to for me to assemble most of the following data

 This is the genealogy of Alan & Barbara White.  It reads like a blend of A Little House on The Prairie and The Story of Daniel Boone.

Alan's ancestors landed in the new country, right after the first pilgrims by a couple of years.  They moved down the eastern Massachusetts coast line to the future state of Rhode Island.  Religious freedom was their purpose for immigrating.  The Hubbard's were instrumental in the formation of The Seventh Day Baptist Church

The Vincent family of Westerly, RI followed the 7th Day Baptist Church movement as it migrated west through New York, Wisconsin, and finally to Farina, Illinois.  It was in New York where Harriet Melissa Vincent met and married Charles A. White in Alfred, NY (1846).  Charles (b.Jan 6, 1823 in Lansing, Tompkins Co, NY-d.Jun 11,1910 at Overbrook, KS) was the son of Peter and Phoebe White.  They were born in northern Monmouth Co, New Jersey in 1802 and 1806 .  We have lost Peter’s trail around 1845, in NY.   Phoebe continued west with her children, to WI, Farina, IL, and finally Indpendence, Kansas, (d.1889) Buried in Longton, Elk Co KS.

Note 1639: The Newport, RI Compact, which formed the basis of the settlement, was signed in April by John Clarke, William Coddington, William Dyer, Nicholas Easton, John Coggeshall, William Brenton, Henry Bull, Jeremy Clarke and Thomas HazardNames in brown are ancestors.

Barbara's ancestors came through Virginia, Delaware, and Pennsylvania, also in the 1600's.   

John Brookie, born in Scotland in 1756, ran away from home and stowed away in a ship that was headed for the Carolina coastline.  When the ship landed, the captain arranged for John to work for a furniture maker as an indentured servant.  When his time and debt were served he proceeded to Philadelphia.  This is probably true since he has been traced to Philadelphia, a city known for wonderful 18th century furniture, and later in Mercersburg, PA,  he and his brother-in-law were partners in a cabinet maker's business.  John and Mary (McElhatten) were married in Mercersburg in 1778.  John served in the American Revolutionary War.  By the late  1780's John was in the McConnell's Station in the (pre)Lexington, KY area.*   It was there that  John was shot by an Indian.  John never fully recovered from his injury and lived his final years with his daughter, Catherine and her husband John "Scotch" Anderson.  The family moved to Madison, Indiana then farther north to Carroll Co. in Indiana.  Date and record of John or Mary's death and burial are unknown.   We do know that John's name in Scotland was Brockie.  It has been recorded a variety of ways throughout the years.     *Note:  Rootsweb.com KY history of Early Forts & Stations in KY
