    • Newspaper Article - Thursday, June 12, 1890 Sandy Creek News - Sandy Creek, New York - Orwell - Another old resident of this town has passed away, Mrs. Alfred White over 81 years of age. She was the mother of Mr. Minot White of this town, who together with his sister tenderly cared for her in her declining years to the end of a well spent and useful life. She came to this town more than thirty years ago together with her husband and children. Her husband preceded her to the better land about twenty-five years ago. She was a sincere Christian and a member of the M. E. church for sixty years; a kind loving mother and neighbor. She leaves two sons and four daughters. The following lines were written by a niece of the deceased and sent from the west. - Lines Composed on the Death of Mrs. Alfred White - Mother thou art gone to the home of the blest, Thy Saviour has called thee away, To a land that is fairer than this, Where all darkness is turned into day. Thy suffering and pain are all o’er, Thou art safe in the arms of the Lord; For his promises are always sure, To those who believe in his word. We know thou art happy in heaven, Thy life was so good and so pure; We know that sweet rest is given, To those who with patience endure. We hope we shall meet thee again, In a land without sorrow or woe; Where die blessed eternally reign, And where sickness thou never shalt know. -A. Webb.
