Ann H. White (1805-1880) The family of George P. White and Ann Hutchison White was very important to our history, as they provided a right-of-way for the railroad which led to the creation of Rock Hill, and much of the city was developed on their farm. Their house, the White Home, is preserved today. Buried here are Ann H. White, who helped found First Presbyterian Church and many of Rock Hill’s earliest institutions; her son Rev. James Spratt White, who led in creating the library and public schools; Mary E. White, Ann’s daughter who lived in the White Home for her entire life; and Adeline Caldwell, Ann’s sister. Ann’s husband, George White, died at an early age and is buried at Ebenezer ARP Church.
