The Late Minister Richard Erskin White, the Great Great Great Grandfather of Samuel Y White. Richard was a very beloved member of the Horse Cave Kentucky community and a “horse back circuit preacher” who ministered to many people in the community during times of need. He had 5 of his own children and one adopted daughter who was from an impoverished family and faced domestic abuse. We decided to name our company after Richard Erskin to help carry on his legacy of giving, devotion, hard work, faith, and love.
