Biography of Henry G. White


White, Henry G., Buffalo, is one of the oldest business men in Buffalo. For more than fifty years he has occupied a leading position in the painting business, and probably no Buffalo artisan is more widely or favorably known than he. Mr. White is a son of Ebenezer and Candace (Smith) White, natives of the "Green Mountain State," and was born in Burlington, Vt., June 8, 1814. He came to this city in 1836 and engaged in his present business. At that time the city was very sparsely settled, and Mr. White recalls many of the historical events of the last half century in Buffalo. He has, in fact, grown up with the city, and now, as in earlier days, is keenly alive to all that affects the good of the municipality. Although near eightyfour he is still hale and vigorous. He is a member of Washington Lodge, No. 240, F. & A. M., and Niagara Lodge, No. 25, I. O. O. F. In 1893 he formed a copartnership with W. H. Pinck, and the firm is now known as H. G. White & Co. Mr. White has been married three times: first, in 1840, to Ann Quale, of the Isle of Man. His second wife was Susan M. Prince, of Boston, Mass., and his third wife is Susan D. Winslow Church. a descendant of Governor Winslow.
