Mildred Scott Stubbs was the daughter of James Stubbs, a veteran of the Revolution, and Mary Eliza Scott, the sister of General John Scott, one of the contractors on the State House. Born in 1775, she married Major Edward White in 1792, travelling to his native Brookline, Massachusetts for their wedding.
Mildred Scott Stubbs White died in Milledgeville on 23 July 1825, seven months after the Marquis de Lafayette's visit. Her headstone is now partially illegible, but originally read: Sacred to the memory of Mrs. Mildred Scott, relict of Maj. Edward White. She died after a long and excruciating illness with that composure which results from a consciousness of a well-spent life. (According to: Allen, Mrs. Henry Dawson, Sr. Index of Milledgeville City Cemetery. Compiled by Milledgeville Town Committee, Georgia Society, Colonial Dames of America, 1938, p. 103. The entry was alphabetized as Scott in this index.)
