James T. Whiteman, one of Henderson County's most widely known residents, died Sept. 18, 1920 at the Burlington Hospital following a short illness resultant from an operation. James Thomas Whiteman was born July 14, 1852 in Preble County Ohio, and was the eldest of eleven children born to Henry M. and Elizabeth Whiteman. At an early age he came with his parents to Biggsville, Ill. and here he made his home until the time of his death.

In early life he followed the occupation of farming, later entering the profession of raising and training fine horses, in which line of work he became very proficient, being a capable judge of equine qualities and also being a natural lover of horses.

In 1908 he was joined in marriage to Miss Margaret McKinley, daughter of R.A. and Mary McKinley. He is survived by his widow, one sister, Mrs. Mary Myers and six brothers: H.O., J.Y., W.M., S.C., A.F. and C.M., all of Biggsville, Ill. except H.O. who lives in Burlington, Iowa. He was preceded to the home beyond a number of years ago by his parents, two sisters and one brother.. He was a faithful member of the Biggsville U.P. Church serving as a member of the choir for over 30 years. His patient solicitude for his wife's invalid sister, who made her home with them, was the subject of much commendation. Funeral services were held at the U.P. Church with interment in the Biggsville Cemetery
