    David White's will was recorded in the old Spanish records of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. In the first sentence of the will, he states that he is the legitimate son of Joseph White and Margaret Leeth. After his death, an attempt was made to break this will and in the records of the trial, there is a sworn deposition of John White of Anson County, North Carolina who identifies himself as a brother of David. During the lifetime of Unity, David White, along with his son-in-law John Perry, were involved in the Indian Trade along the Tombigbee River, Yazoo lands, in what would later become the state of Alabama. David White would later take up residence and land in New Feliciana Parish, Louisiana, a part of Spanish West Florida at that time. On August 16, 1794, he prepared his will, specifying that his entire estate be given to Sybil Turnbull, daughter of his good friend John Turnbull, now deceased. The will was sealed and given to the Spanish authorities at the "Fort and District of Baton Rouge" on August 21, 1794 for safekeeping until his death. He stated that he was "an Englishman and a native of North America," then he and the witnesses he had brought along signed "the closed folder." All of his family thought he was dead except his brother John, who took up his trail and found him in Louisiana. Later, his sons Joseph and William visited their father. David sent an invitation to Sarah through the sons to bring the family, but Sarah did not respond, and David did not change his will. The will was probated in 1809, and Sybil inherited. David's wife Sarah sued, and the court ruled against her. She tried again, and was again unsuccessful.
