Reinbeck Man Died Suddenly At Iowa University Hospital
James A. White, Reinbeck, died suddenly at 1:25 Tuesday afternoon at the University hospital in Iowa City after an illness of about three weeks. He had been taken to the hospital Thursday of last week for examination and his trouble diagnosed as goitre, which was believed by surgeons there would yield to treatment and an operation.
An inflammation of the brain coming in his weakened condition proved quickly fatal. Mr. White had been ill for little more than two weeks before going to the hospital and was thought to be suffering from a heart ailment.
James Alton White was born on a farm near Reinbeck March 25, 1880, the second son of Elliott and Frances White, pioneer residents of this section. He had lived practically his entire life of 52 years, 2 months and 6 days in this community.
He was married in 1900 to Miss Grace Wilcox and to this union were born four children, who with the widow survive his untimely death. These are Mrs. Marietta Breed, Mrs. Ellen Westergaard, James Jr., and Maxine, all of Reinbeck.
Mr. White is also survived by two sisters and two brothers. These are Mrs. G. R. Koht and Mrs. D. W. Campbell and William White, of Reinbeck, and Fred A. White, of Billings, Mont.
Mr. White was engaged at the carpenter trade in Reinbeck for a number of years, until about ten years ago he went into the dairy business, in which he was engaged at his death.
