White and McCray / McRae

I wonder if anyone who has a copy of E.R. Seary's "Family Names of the Island of Newfoundland" to hand would mind checking it for any listings for two surnames - White and McCray / McRae or similar variations. I'm looking for leads on whether either of these families might have a history in Newfoundland in the late 1700s / early 1800s.

I am particularly interested in any possible information on Catherine White - born in the late 1790s or up to 1815. She...

O'Brien, Michael - St John's East 1911 - 1941
Michael was the son of Margaret Hickey (1878-1963) from Torbay, and Maurice O'Brien (1875-1982) from Outer Cover. He married Ellen Gallivan and they had two daughters Margaret O'Brien (1935 - present) and Marie O'Brien (1933 - ?) I believe Margaret is still living in St. John's.

Michael apparently abandoned his wife and children. I'm not sure of when, but he died in WW2 along with 3 of his brothers and there is a monument on Signal Hill regarding the family.

Elizabeth Paull of Bonavista died 1816
I am looking for some help tracing Elizabeth Paull who married John Durdle in 1802 in Bonavista. I cannot find a birth record for her. She married John in 1802, had three children and died with her daughter Mary (referred to as Mary Bundle in some records) in 1816. The only record I can find that comes close is of an Elizabeth Pallo born in Harbour Grace in 1775/6. I am wondering if any of the Paul researchers out there can shed some light on who she was and where she came from.
