On Saturday evening last one of Huntley’s well-known residents passed out of life in the person of Mr. James White, who lived on the twelfth line. Deceased was 76 years of age, and was ill for a couple of years from a complication of ailments. He lived nearly all his life on the farm on which he died.
His funeral took place on Monday, and was largely attended. Deceased was a successful farmer, and amassed considerable of this world’s goods. By will he leaves to his only son, John, whose whereabouts have been unknown for twenty years, the homestead with its 100 acres and $2,000 in cash, provided he turns up within the next twenty years. Should the son not be found the above will revert to his daughter’s family.
To his daughter, Mrs. Dennis O’Brien, he leaves $1,200 in cash, 100 acres of land and all the stock and implements, etc. The estate is worth over $10,000. The father of the late Mr. White was one of the leaders of the famous Ballygiblin settlers who came to this section in 1822.
