After a year's illness, our townsman, Loren H. White, died at his home here early Monday morning, Oct. 29th. During the past few years he had suffered a series of afflictions that few men meet with, but he fought a great fight through it all, and finished the course of 60 years among his own people, having been born in Quaker Street and always resided in the town of Duanesburgh. For years before his death he was engaged in the furniture and undertaking business at Delanson.

Funeral services were held at his home on Wednesday, Rev. D. B. Patterson, pastor of Christ's Episcopal church, Duanesburgh, of which Mr. White was a member, officiating. Masonic services were held at the grave in Grove Cemetery.

In politics Mr. White was a Democrat, was always a popular candidate and repeatedly elected. His last office was that of village trustee. For fourteen years he was a justice of the peace of the town of Duanesburgh, and a supervisor for two years.

In 1908 he was nominated for the Assembly by the Democratic party and was elected by a majority of seventy over Miles R. Frisbie, Republican.

Renominated in 1909, he was elected by a majority of 304 over John R. Parker, Republican.

In 1910 he was nominated for state senator in the Schenectady-Montgomery-Schoharie district and was elected, defeating Hon. Charles E. Nichols for that office. He was a member of several important committees of the senate.

Mr. White was a member of several fraternal orders, including Noah lodge No. 754, F, and A. M.; Noah chapter No. 284, R. A. M., of Altamont; DeWitt Clinton council No. 22, R. and S. M; Beth-Omen lodge No. 521, I. O. O. F., of Delanson; Mudjekeewis tribe No. 428, I. 0. R. M.; and the Order of American Woodmen. He has been postmaster of Delanson.

His wife and one son, Galen White survive. They have been untiring in their service to the needs of Mr. White during his long illness and have the sympathy of the entire community. Mr. White also leaves a sister, Mrs. Albert Kipp, of Schenectady.
