White, J. A. – Obituary

J. A. White, for nine years a resident of Union, died at his home in South Union, Sunday, November 27, 1927, age a little over 65 years. The funeral took place from Cock Bros., undertaking parlors, Tuesday afternoon, November 29.

Jas. Alexander White was born October 1st, 1862, in Arkansas and died at his home in Union, Ore., November 27th.

He came west to California about 1890, then returned to Missouri, where he was married, his wife dying 22 years ago.

He came to Union some nine years ago, where he has since made his home. He leaves behind him one son, Jas. Rodney White, of Kansas, and Mrs. Marie Graven, of Baker, Oregon. Also Mrs. Simmons, a cousin, with whom he stayed for a long time before his death.

Mr. White had been sick for many months, and at last was compelled to pay the universal debt of mankind.

The testimony of friends and neighbors is, he was a good man, honest to the limit and carried the respect of those who knew him. He was formerly a member of the Odd Fellows and of the Woodmen of the World, but ceased from both orders some time before he died.

He was laid away in the local cemetery. Robt.C. Lee of the Methodist Episcopal church, in charge.
