Editor's Note:  I thought I was closer to knowing who Verna and Mabel White were with the addition of two names --Walton and Leo but all leads dried up.  The most interesting thought is that Walton is Walton Babcock born in 1879 in Busti but even given the name Babcock I can't find a line that would make him a distant cousin to Allen.  There is an orphan Leo White from Warren, PA and a Mabel White from Warren but that horribly irritating fire that took out the 1890 census leaves me too many blanks.  I'm not even sure of the dam they are boating at.
