"'Death of Benjamin White of North Marshfield at a Ripe Old Age'

Hanover, Mass., Jan. 15, 1881 [sic] — Mr. Benjamin White of North Marshfield died yesterday morning, after an illness of about two months, at the advanced age of 95 years.

Mr. White was born in the town of Hanover, August 27, 1795 [sic]. He was a direct descendant of Peregrine White, fifth generation. Peregrine White was the son of William White, who came in the Mayflower and landed at Plymouth in 1620. Mr. White was educated in the public schools of his native town and spent his early life on his father's farm. He lived in Hanover over 52 years. On May 8, 1831, he married Miss Mary Hall of Marshfield, who survives him, and is 83 years of age. He was a staunch Democrat and has always read The Globe.

He leaves a widow, three sons, two daughters, a number of grandchildren, besides a very large number of friends to mourn his loss."
