Mordecai White left a 1779 Bertie Co. WILL, where he names his children: William, Luke, Abigail ? etc. It appears they are listed in birth order based on:
? known birth dates of some of the children
? daughters are intermingled in the order (i.e. not all sons first and then daughters)
? although oldest child, William, predeceased him, he is still first in order and then names William's children.
Based on birth order, this would make his son, Luke, DOB about 1724-1725.
