Rogers, a prominent physician of this county for many years.  She was also an aunt of Mr. Frank White, of Bavaria, Ohio, mentioned elsewhere in these volumes.
     The early education of Mr. White was acquired in the schools of Clermont county at the same time assisting on the farm.  He afterward learned the trade of carriage builder with his brother, Levi, a manufacturer at Bantam.  He attended the first school of its kind west of the New England States and still has the diploma received at that time. He served during the closing year of the Civil war in Company L, Ninth Ohio cavalry, and was many years an active member of the Grand Army of the Republic Post at New Richmond.
     Mr. White was united in marriage to Flora, a daughter of Thomas L. and Evaline (Donham) Nichols, in 1865.  The Nicholas and Donham families were early and prominent representatives residents of Clermont county.  Mr. and Mrs. White have the following children to bless their union:  Lew F., junior member of the firm of T. P. White & Son, who was born Aug. 1, 1866, at New Richmond, and there received his early education, following which he attended the commercial college at Cincinnati.  He then worked with his father for some years, becoming junior partner in 1901, and has since devoted his entire attention to the extensive business of the firm.  From 1899 to 1900, Lew F. was an officer in the United States army transport service, on board the transport "Thomas," from the close of the Spanish-American war, in the Philippine insurrection.  During his service, he twice circumnavigated the globe, spending nearly two years in the army service.  When quite a young man Mr. L.
