Leonard T. White was born in Fleming county, Kentucky, Nov. 21, 1818. He moved near Peoria, Illinois, where in 1848 he was married to Miss Minerva Smith. To Mr. and Mrs. White three children were born James L. White of Holton, Mrs. George H. Norton of Hiawatha, and Cornelius J. White of Powhattan. At the outbreak of the Civil War Mr. White enlisted in the 77th Illinois infantry and served until the end of the war. During the last year he was taken prisoner and was kept 13 months in Camp Ford at Tyler, Texas. When the war closed and Mr. White was released he returned to Illinois. In 1869 he came to Brown county and settled on a farm near Claytonville. There he lived until about 16 years ago when he moved to Hiawatha. For nearly five years Mr. and Mrs. White lived just north of the fairgrounds. 11 years ago Mrs. White died and since then Mr. White has made his home with his daughter, Mrs. Norton. For many months he has been confined to his home and Monday evening he passed peacefully away.
