Obituary – Mrs. Carolina White
East Liverpool Tribune

Word was received here late last evening of the death at Carrollton of Mrs. Carolina White, which occurred about 9 o’clock at the home of her daughter, Mrs. E. O. Stevenson, of cancer of the stomach. She had been in failing health for nearly a year and the end was not unexpected. She went to Carrollton on a visit and was taken ill soon after her arrival there. She was born in Beaver County, Pa., and had been a resident of Ohio since 1858, the past sixteen years of her life having been spent in East Liverpool. She was very well known and highly respected and the news of her death was learned with profound regret by her friends in this city.

The funeral services will be held Thursday morning at 9:30 o’clock at the home of the daughter in Carrollton, and the remains will be laid to rest in the Woodsfield cemetery beside the bodies of her husband and four children.

Daniel White, the husband of Carolina White, was killed by a passenger train near the C. C. Thompson pottery fifteen years ago while on his way to East Liverpool to hear a temperance lecture. He stepped off one track t avoid a freight train and was run down by the passenger.

Mrs. White was a member of the Untied Presbyterian church and a woman of the best Christian character. She was the mother of eleven children, six of whom survive, as follows: Mrs. D. P. Ralston, Smiths Ferry; Mrs. Archie O. Searight, D. F. White, Mrs. John Grant and Mrs. Will Price, of East Liverpool; Mrs. O. E. Stevenson, Carrollton. Harry and Charles Ralston of Smiths. Ferry, and Abner and James White, of East End, grandsons of the deceased will officiate as pallbearers. Frank Searight, the well known newspaper man, was also a grand son of Mrs. White.
