Obituary (The Press and Banner and Abbeville Medium April 13, 1925)
{{Mrs. George White Was Buried Yesterday. Funeral services for Mrs. Sarah White were held yesterday afternoon at 3:30 o'clock at the home of her daughter, Mrs A.M. Smith, with whom she has made her home recently. The interment followed in Long Cane Cemetery.

Mrs. White died at 7 o'clock Friday evening. She had been in feeble health for some months and her death was not unexpected. Before her marriage Mrs. White was Miss Sarah E. Perrin, a daughter of Col. Thos. C. and Jane Wardlaw Perrin.

Col. Thos. Perrin was the first signer of the ordinance of secession and a man who stood high in the councils of his state in the stirring time of 1861-1865.

Mrs White was born January 1, 1841 and married Mr. George White, June 29, 1876. Mr White preceeded her to the grave about two years ago.

Mrs. White was a typical southern gentlewoman of charming personality and brilliant mind and a delightful conversationalist.

It was at her fathers home that most of President Davis' cabinet members were entertained when the last meeting was held at the Burt Mansion, and she talked most interestingly of those trying days. She was often sought as an authority on disputed questions of those history making times.

She was a life long and devoted member of the Presbyterian Church, and the sweetness of her Christian character was exemplified in her daily life. "None knew her but to love her, none named her but to praise."

She is survived by the following children: Mrs. A.M. Smith of this place, Mrs. Frank Evans of Spartanburg, Mrs. Geo. Wright of Laurens and Miss Sarah White of Washington D.C.

Those from out of town who attended the funeral services of Mrs. George White yesterday were Mrs. George Perrin, Mr. Spencer Perrin of Union, Mr. and Mrs. Cothran Perrin of Seneca, Mrs. Lizzie Cothran and Mrs. Jennie Cothran from Greenwood, Mrs. L.W. Perrin of York, Mr. W.B. Perrin of Greenville, Mr. L.W. Perrin of Spartanburg, Judge Thos Cothran and Mrs. W.C. Cothran of Greenville, Mr.Tom Perrin of Bishopville, Mr. and Mrs. Herbert Allen of Greenwood.}}
