Biography of Dr. Charles M. White
Madison County, NY Biographies





White, Charles M., M. D., p. o. Georgetown, a widely known citizen of Georgetown, held in much respect for professional skill and for the active interest he has taken in matters pertaining to the public good, is a son of Elijah and Betsey (Madison) White, born in the town of Nelson, Madison county, N. Y., September 15, 1829. While his remote ancestors were of German-English descent, his parents were born in Massachusetts. Dr. White's boyhood was spent in school and his father's blacksmith shop, which trade he learned and followed for some time. On January 1, 1350, he married Wealthy L., daughter of Leander Edgerton. Not long after his marriage he began to read medicine and later entered the office of Dr. John Heifron, and in 1862 began the practice of his profession in company with Dr. Hiram Scranton, with whom he was associated eight years. In 1870 this copartnership was dissolved, since which time Dr. White has been engaged in practice alone. He is a member of the Central New York Medical Society; he is no aspirant for political office, finding in the delights of his home life and the duties of his practice more pleasure than in the turmoil of civic affairs. Mr. and Mrs. White have had four children: Charles R., Anna V. (deceased), Emma F. (Mrs. Simon Duell), and Eva (deceased). Dr. White has never been a professed member of any church, but is broad minded, liberal, and just toward all creeds. He and his wife have had many friends and admirers and both occupy a place among the best society of Madison county. Mrs. White died March 19, 1899.
