Description Detail. Methodist Episcopal General Conference, held at Napanee, August, 1874

Full name, Gilmon Sullivan White. Rev. G. Sullivan White was born in the United States of German ancestry on November 3, 1832. He came to Canada in 1849.

Rev. White married Tabitha Brown, who had strong connections with the Bay of Quinte. (Her mother was the former Sarah Goldsmith of Belleville.) In 1862/3, Rev. White was serving at Bellrock, in Frontenac county, where a daughter, Hattie Sarah, was born.

By 1871, Rev. White was stationed in north Leeds /Grenville. Then, in the early 1880s, he and his wife, Tabitha, moved to Dundas county, where Rev. White was one of two Methodist Episcopal ministers serving the Inkerman/South Mountain area. While they were in Dundas county, daughter Sarah married James Gamble formerly of Brockville but then working in Ogdensburgh, N.Y.

Rev. White was later selected for Grace Church, Napanee, and the family appears at Napanee on the 1901 census. (At that time, their daughter, Sarah Gamble and a grandson, James Gamble, were staying with them.) The years in Napanee were very happy. Rev. White died in about 1912 and his wife in 1920. They are both buried at Napanee.
