Death of Mr. James H. White

Mr. James H. White, a much esteemed and highly respected citizen, died suddenly last Wednesday morning at the residence of his sister, Mrs. Edward Shannon. Mr. White had been quite well up to one week ago yesterday, when he was attacked with a chill and sharp pains in his back. He grew worse, but was not considered dangerously ill White sitting in his chair about 9 o'clock apparently asleep, it was discovered that he had suddenly expired. His unexpected death caused considerable surprise to his many friends, some eveng being unaware of his sickness. He was in the 70th years of his age, being born in Baltimore, Md., Dec 7th, 1813, and came to this city in the year 1818, being only five years of age. For over a quarter of a century he was in the undertaking business with Mr. C. Vail, and only retired a few years ago. He was a member of Trinity M.E. church and an Odd Fellow, belonging to Monroe Lodge No. 2. The funeral occurred yesterday from the residence of his sister on Main Cross, and was attended by a large number of our citizens.
