White, John Thomas
M: Jane Josephine Cameron, Richmond
FN: Matthew J. White
MN: Jane Josephine Cameron
John Thomas White followed in his father's footsteps. He was a carpenter and also did some farming. Like his father, he also made caskets. There are many buildings in the vicinity of Freetown and many parts of PEI that were built by John T. White. They bear significant features that were evident in houses and other buildings that he constructed. Two of the outstanding ones are St. James Catholic Church in Summerfield and the Parochial House adjoining. He designed the interior of the church by eliminating the pillars. It was the only church on PEI at that time, in 1929, that was without pillars. John Thomas White inherited his father's farm of 38.5 acres and resided there. Source: Freetown Past and Present
