|Notes: Barbara was born in 1922 in the town of Monticello in Napa County, California.
She attended the Oak Grove Schoolhouse by riding to school on horseback every day.
She spent her summers swimming and fishing in Putah Creek, and hunting with
family and friends on Blue Ridge. She graduated from
Winters High School, and in her early years, cowboyed throughout the Berryessa Valley
for many of the ranchers — with a good horse always ready for the task.|
The Hightower Family history reports that Barbara married Peter Miller in about 1940 and that he was killed in action after 1940 during World War II. I have found no other evidence to prove this.
Barbara married William White in 1946. Together they ranched in Carneros for 10 years. In 1956 they bought a ranch in Chiles Valley, where they resided for the rest of their lives raising cattle, sheep, and hay. Barbara was a charter member of the Pope Valley Ropers and Riders, and a longtime member of the Napa Solano Cattlemen's Association.
Barbara liked to can fruits and vegetables, took pleasure in cooking, and tending to to her garden — with her faithful dog Allie by her side. Her love for the ranching way of life and agriculture-related pursuits continued to the end. She passed away 20 days shy of her 88th birthday.
