      John BURKITT/BURKETT and Anne MILLS had 4 daughters including Elizabeth "Eliza" BURKETT/BURKITT who married Capt. George WHITE before 1712 and had George WHITE, Jr. George WHITE, Jr. is the one you refer to in the following deed to William Jett: "William Jett of King George County, 50 acres from George White from the latter's grandfather, John Burkett, whose daughter, Eliza Burkett, was the mother of the said White, 1755."

      George, Jr.'s father, Captain George WHITE (16??-1738) was the son of Thomas WHITE and his wife Jane of Westmoreland Co. The will of Capt. George White and that of his brother Capt. Daniel White were both in the lost King George Co. WB #1.

      I hope that explains the relationships better.
