Thomas H. White passed away at his late home in Placerville, Col., on Feb. 15, after an illness of several months from heart and stomach trouble, contracted from an attack of grip last September. He was born in Topsham in 1838, and was in the Civil war, enlisting on Aug. 6, 1862. He was corporal, sergeant and lieutenant, being mustered out June 29, 1865. He was a faithful member and devoted attendant of the M.E. church as long as his strength would permit. The funeral was held from the church Feb.17 under the auspices of Placerville post, No. 108, G.A.R., of which Mr. White was a member and past commander. He is survived by his widow and one son, of Placerville, one daughter in Minneapolis, and two brothers, Fred of Fullerton, Col., and Henry B. of Topsham.
