Obituary (The Press and Banner and Abbeville Medium July 9, 1923)

{{Mr. George Smith died this morning, July 9th, 1923, at seven o'clock at his home on Chestnut Street. Mr. White has been in feeble health for sometime but his final illness was of short duration. Funeral services will be held this afternoon at the Presbyterian Church at six o'clock and the interment will be at Long Cane Cemetery.

Mr. White was the son of John White and his wife, Lucy Smith. He was born September 8th, 1893 and was in his 84th year.

He was one of a family of six children, L.W. White, Miss Lucy White, Mrs. Nannie Wardlaw, Mr. Charlie White, being known to this generation while his brother, W.H. White was killed in the Army and another brother, Robert, went west and died many years ago.

Mr. White was married June 29th, 1875 to Miss Sarah Perrin, the daughter of Col. T.C. Perrin and his wife, Jane Wardlaw, and to them were born four daughters, who survive and one son who died in infancy. The daughters are: Mrs George Wirght of Laurens; Mr. Frank Evans of Spartanburg; Mrs. A.M. Smith of this city and Miss Sallie White of Washington.

Mr. Smith was a soldier of the Confederacy, serving first with Col. Perrin's Company, after which he was mustered into Company B. Orr's Regiment of Riffes. He was wounded twice during the service and was an excellent soldier.

After the war, Mr. White went into business in Abbeville in 1865 with his brother, Mr. L.W. White and Mr. W. Joel Smith. Mr. Smith withdrew in a short while and for thirty-five years the firm of White Brothers, carried on one of the largest grocery, clothing and dry goods businesses in the country. Mr. White withdrew from the firm of White Brothers and for a year or two carried on a dry goods business for himself, after which he retired from active affairs.

Mr. White was the oldest living native born man in the town and he was an interesting talker of the things that happened in the past. He has been a member of the Presbyterian Church for perhaps seventy years and has been a deacon in the church for about fifty years.

The deacons of the church will act as pall bearers this afternoon and the elders of the church will act as honorary escort to the deceased.

Mrs. White survives her husband, Mrs. Evens and Miss Sallie White have been with their father for sometime. Mr. and Mrs. George Wright and family, Miss Lizzie Harrison, Mrs. Wade Cothran and Mrs. E.P. Harrison are in the city for the funeral.}}
