J. B. White established the principal business houses at Belen in 1909, and throughout its existence he did both a furnishing business and a cash trade. Mr. White also operated a farm near Belen, devoted principally to raising valuable long staple cotton, but an abundance of grain as well. Being of a splendid character, Mr. White was elected sheriff in 1896 and served a four-year term. It is said that he made one of our best sheriffs.
