White, Charles S. (1833-1896)

Charles S. White breathed his last at 2 o’clock on Monday morning, Feb. 17, 1896, at the home of his daughter, Mrs. A.M. Shaw of this city, aged 62 years and a few months.

Deceased was born in Braintree, Vermont, on Aug 13, 1833. About 40 years ago he came to River Falls, Wis., where he was married and continued to reside, until about 13 years ago when he and his family moved to the Red River valley, settling on a farm near Crookston. More recently he was the manager of Mr. Winchester’s farm at Angus. Mr. White’s health had been poor for a number of years. About six years ago he suffered a shock of apoplexy from which he never fully recovered. During his well days he was a man of striking personality, intelligence and force. Since the death of a daughter a little over a year ago, Mr. and Mrs. White have made their home with their daughter, Mrs. A.M. Shaw of this city. Another daughter resides here also, being Mrs. Dr. Wattam.

The funeral took place Tuesday afternoon from the home under the auspices of the Masonic society, of which deceased was a respected member. The community extends their sincere sympathy to the bereaved widow, her family and relatives.
