Baltimore Sun 7/21/1883

A Ship-Painter Drowned--Bernard White, an old ship-painter, was drowned yesterday morning by stepping overboard from Numsen's Wharf, back of Federal Hill. He was about to step on a schooner, which he was to paint, but made a misstep and fell into the water. His body was shortly after recovered, and every effort made to resuscitate him, but without avail. The body was taken home, 57 Cross Street. He was 63 years old, and leaves a wife and six children, the youngest nine months old. No inquest.


James Dugan was arrested by watchman Lawton, on the charge of beating and assaulting Bernard White. Justice Morrison committed him to jail in default of security to answer in court.

James Dugan, for beating Barney White, was imprisoned 30 days.

On the morning of the 27th instant, after a lingering illness, which she bore with resignation to the will of her Heavenly Father, Mrs. Rosana Jane White, consort of Barney White, in her 46th year of age.

Weep not for me, my husband dear,
To grieve it is in vain;
Christ is my hope, you need not fear,
We all shall meet again.

Dearest mother, thou has left us,
We thy loss most deeply feel,
But 'tis God who hath bereft us,
He can all our sorrow heal.

The friends and relatives are invited to attend her funeral, on this (Tuesday) afternoon, at two o'clock, from her late residence, No. 6 Reeder's Row.
