Obits - NJ - Monmouth - 1887 - Patrick White
Patrick White, a man about 65 years of age, who was employed by Edward A. Bowman,
of Little Silver, was found dead at the roadside on Sunday by David B. Keeler,
of Rumson Neck. Last Thursday White had helped John Carton move his personal effects, and had drank
pretty freely. When he was going home to Mr. Bowman's on Thursday night the wagon broke
down and he went back to Carton's for another. This wagon upset on the way home and White
unhitched the horses and started them home. Then he meandered down towards the river,
and lay down beside a small clump of bushes at the side of the road, near Rumson nurseries.
the cold weather of Thursday night and Friday must have killed him.

When the body was found Coroner R. T. Smith was notified, and it was removed to his undertaking
shop at Red Bank. The circumstances were such that an inquest was not deemed necessary, and the
remains were interred at Calvary cemetery at Fair View. It is said that White had
a wife, but nothing is known of her.
