Per father's estate papers: James was no longer a resident of Illinois as of 28 Aug 1862,
A possible match for James: 1880 Kansas, Nemaha Co, Rock Creek (Ancestry p. 9 of 38) I believe this is a correct match because age and birthplaces match. Plus James was known to have left Illinois. Mother's birthplace given as Pennsylvania per Familysearch.com. Also the names are similar: Ann MATILDA, SAMUEL E, JAMES A. also note use of initials. The family apparently spent time in Missouri as 1st 5 children were born there.
1900 census shows James a widower living w. 4 sons one of whom is married & has a child.
per N Henton: James served in the Civil war as a sergeant and a scout. He was in company 305 of Missouri Volunteers.
James was living with Will and Hulda when he died in September 28, 1910 He is buried at the Sabetha Cemetery next to Fannie.
Obituary for James White, courtesy of Norma Henton:
James White, one of Nemaha County's old settlers, passed away at the home of his son, William White, Friday morning, at 4:05 o'clock, September 28, 1910, at the age of 70 years, 1 month, and 16 days. Mr. White was an upright man and was loved by all his friends and neighbors, who will miss him greatly. Mr. White was born in Galena, Illinois, on the 12th day of August, 1840, and died of cancer of the stomach on the above mentioned date. About two months before his death he was taken to St. Joseph to be operated on, but his disease was already so far advanced the doctors feared for his recovery and he was taken back home. He enlisted as a soldier in 1861, belonging to the 5th Missouri, Company D. He was a volunteer from Illinois. He also served as sergeant in his company. Mr. White was the first assessor of Berwick township, guardian of the Germane girls*, who emigrated from the east and were picked up on the plains by General Miles and Bat Masterson, who later became the first Marshall of the city of Wichita. Mr. White was married to Miss Grace Moore in Illinois and in March 1878 came to Kansas, settling in Nemaha County, where he has always lived with the exception of one year, which he with his children spent in California. Eight children were born to Mr. and Mrs. White, all living and all residents of Nemaha County but one, the youngest daughter, Mrs. Isetta White-Stocking. The children are the following: Matilda Sellers of Wetmore; Sam, Will, Alfred, Gus, George and John, of this immediate vicinity, and Isetta Stocking of Newton, Iowa. Funeral services were held by the G. A. R. members at their hall in Sabetha with Mr. Wickins as commander, and his remains were placed to rest in the Sabetha cemetery. - Seneca Tribune
German girls - in 1874 the German family was heading west theough Kansas hoping to settle in Colorado. They were attacked by Cheyenne Indians on September 11, 1874. Mr & Mrs German, a son and a daughter were killed outright. Five other daughters were taken prisoner. One was murdered as they headed into Texas. The Cheyenne chief Stone Calf then took the two older girls, aged 15 and 13. Gray Beard kept the two younger ones aged 9 and 7 by McClellan Creek. On November 8 an army unit with Bat Masterson discovered Gray Beard's camp and attacked. When the battle was over Julia and Adelaide German were found huddled under a buffalo robe. A year later Stone Calf surrendered to the Indian Agency and the two older girls were recovered. This is the story of the German girls of whom James White became guardian.
