John Whiteman


He Was a Brother of Captain L. H. Whiteman and Formerly Lived Here

Captain L. H. Whiteman last evening received word of the death of his brother, John Whiteman, which occurred in Galatia, Ks., February 4, and through a misunderstanding Captain Whiteman had not been notified of his death sooner.

Mr. Whiteman was a man 63 years of age, and had lived in this county where he was born and raised until about twenty years ago. Up to that time he had lived on the farm now occupied by J. C. Routzong, north of the city. After leaving Greene County he went to Southern Kansas where he has lived since that time.

He had been in poor health for about a year, but his last illness was caused by blood poisoning and death was very sudden, as he was seriously ill but about two hours.

He leaves several children, his wife having died several years ago. He is survived by three brothers, Captain Whiteman, of this city; Joshua Whiteman, of Marion, Ind., and Jackson Whiteman, Postmaster at Marcellus, Mo.

He was an old soldier, a member of Company H, Ninety-fourth Regiment, Ohio Volunteer Infantry, and was in the service for three years during the war.
