Judge Charles R.
"Thompson's Falls, Mon., July 29.
Physicians at Spokane Falls informed the Judge that death was certain if he remained there, and that if he attempted to return home he had about one chance in a hundred of accomplishing the undertaking. He took the one chance and lost.

Jonathan White was the son of Henry and Hannah Morris White. He was born at Red Bank, Monmouth County, New Jersey, on March 11, 1820. His father died when Mr. White was but an infant. His Mother brought him with his sister to Ohio in 1821 and located near Lebanon. Soon after his mother’s death he came to the neighborhood of Carlisle.
He was united in marriage with Eleanor TenEyck, February 22, 1843. Eight children were born to them, four sons and four daughters. All the daughters and two sons survive to comfort their mother in her sorrow and loneliness. He closed his earthly life on Thursday, April 25th, 1901, at the rare and ripe age of 81 years, 1 month and 14 days.
Perhaps no man, not in public life or business, ever lived in this community who was more widely known than Mr. White. For eighty years he had lived in Warren County and had witnessed its transformation from a thickly wooded region to one of cultivated fields and beautiful homes. His own hands had their full share in this change.
Mr. White was a man, when in his prime and vigor, of splendid strength and great bodily endurance. He was a man of intuition and of quick perception of the motives that actuated men – not suspicious but always alert.
He was a just man and hated an injustice with all the intensity of a vigorous soul. He spurned hypocrisy and sham. He did not believe in the mere artificial belongings of the times. He had no short cuts to the accumulation of property. He was first vexed then pained by misplaced confidence. He had a kindly sympathy for the poor and unfortunate. Honesty was his pride. He sought by word and deed to inculcate the principle of fair dealing.
He lived on the farm near Franklin for 55 years and had removed to the suburb of Franklin but a few weeks before his death. His funeral was April 27, 1901, where a large number of his old friends and relatives assembled to pay tribute to his memory.
Services were conducted by Rev. B.F. Clayton assisted by Rev. C. D. Wilson."

Thomas Gibbs White was
born near Zoar, Warren County, Ohio March 26, 1852. His father and grandfather
bore the name of James White
and both resided on the farm upon which the deceased was born. When he
was about two years old, he came with his father's family to the farm
where he spent the remainder of his life, with the exception of four years.
During this time he was employed in teaching and in the grocery business
at Morrow, Ohio. A part of his education was gained in the country school
and the remainder in the Normal school
in Lebanon. His first wife was Ada M. Dugan. They were
married February 15, 1876. Her grandfather and his, were co-workers in
the Methodist ministry, and their marriage was the culmination of the
life long association of the families. Five children were born of this
union. They are, James Charmer, Sarah Elizabeth,
wife of L. S. Ivins, Mary Keever, wife
of A. G. Gilmore, Robert Marvyn and
Laura Emily. In these was his very soul wrapped up and
for them he spent his life freely This home circle was broken January
2, 1893 by the death of the wife and mother, but, his courage never failed
in the darkest hour. For the few years following his sister came into
the home to assist in the care of the family especially of the two-months-old
baby. He was married October 19, 1898 to Adaline T. Jameson
who ever since has presided over his home with diligence and care, Throughout
his life his sunny nature won friends and his sincerity held them. He
lived an exemplary Christian life. The principles of religion inculcated
in his early life strengthened as the years went on, and all who were
privileged to enter his sick room realized this to be true. His testimony
to all was of the abiding presence of his Savior. He had a keen perception
of the right and was conscientious and true. He united with the M. E.
church in Lebanon, March 1, 1868, under the pastorate of Dr. D.
J. Starr and continued in full fellowship and manifold labors
of love until the summons came for his transition. For several years he
has held official position in the church. He was taken sick January 10,
with appendicitis. After suffering patiently for ten days he peacefully
passed away January 20, 1909. Beside his wife and children, many friends
and relatives remain to cherish his [memory] as an inspiration to noble
living and Christian devotion.
Resolutions of Respect.
Therefore be it
