James B. White

James B, white, aged 73 years, died at 1:45 o'clock Sunday morning at his home on Luther street of a complication of diseases. He gave up work about two years ago, and had been an invalid all winter.

Mr. White was born in Whiting, Vt., but spent considerable of his life in the west, where he was engaged in railroading and bridge building. From 1844 to 1847 he served in the United States navy, and he served through the civil war with the 47th Missouri regiment. He had been a resident of this city about 12 years, having been employed in the Arnold Print works until two years ago. He was a member of C. D. Sanford post, G. A. R., and was very well known and highly respected.

Mr. White leaves a widow, three sons, John W., James H., and Charles A., two stepsons, and one stepdaughter, Walter E., Willard H., and Maxine J. Davidson, all of this city. He also leaves five sisters and two brothers, most of whom live in the west. One of his sisters, Mrs. L. P. Hull of Saver, pa., was here at the time of his death.

The funeral will be held in the Methodist church parlors tomorrow afternoon at 2 o'clock, Rev. J. A. Hamilton officiating, and the burial will be in Southview cemetery.
