• Biography: 2024 "Asa White was born in Monson, Mass., in the year 1774. His educational advantages were such as the common schools of his native State afforded. He early exhibited those traits of character which peculiarly distinguish business men.
Inheriting the energy and active habits of his father, he soon learned to rely upon his own efforts for self-advancement in the world, and thus by persevering industry, economy and a just appreciation of a good reputation, he became the artificer of his own fortune, and the moulder of his own character. In 1798, he emigrated to Homer, N.Y., and in 1800 married Clarissa, daughter of Caleb Keep, who had also settled in that town in 1798."

Events
• Horace was a member of the Calvary Church, 12 Apr 1835. 2024
• He emigrated in 1838 from Syracuse, Onondaga County, New York, USA. 2024
• He worked as a Store Clerk about 1820 in Homer, Cortland County, New York, USA worked 10 years for Jebediah Barber. 2024
• Biography: 2024 "The subject of this sketch was born in the village of Homer, Cortland county, N.Y., [was Onondaga County in this year] April 19, 1802. He was the eldest of five children of Asa White and Clarissa Keep.
When about fourteen years of age he went from home and became a clerk for Horace Hill, of Auburn, N.Y. About two years afterwards he was engaged in a similar capacity in Albany in a store where his father had an interest. Subsequently he held the same situation with Jebediah Barber, of Homer, where, during the ten years of his stay, he acquired a reputation for business talent unusual for so young a man.
His health, however, failed and he retired to a small farm on which he labored for two or three years. About this time, and when he was thirty years of age, he became acquainted with the worship and doctrines of the Protestant Episcopal Church. They commended themselves to his understanding, and on the 12th of April, 1835, he united with Calvary Church, Homer, N.Y. Rev. Henry Gregory, then missionary at that place, being pastor. At the next visitation of the Bishop he received the Apostolic Rite of Confirmation and was admitted to the Holy Communion. From that time through his subsequent life he was steadfast in profession and practice.
In the year 1838, Mr. White removed to Syracuse where he at once began to take an active part in business, and in connection with others, established the Bank of Syracuse, of which he was Cashier until his declining health compelled him to resign. In the year 1839 he was made a Vestryman of St. Paul's Church, and in 1848 a Warden, a position which he held at the time of his decease.
His career as a man of business was marked by almost uninterrupted success. He was connected with important enterprises for advancing the interests of both the city and the State. In all moneyed transactions, it is the testimony of those best qualified to judge, that he was actuated by strict Christian integrity. Nor did he content himself with this negative virtue. His munificence was widely directed. Hobart College and other less conspicuous institutions were recipients of his gifts, while the missionary and the needy received his ernest attention.
Mr. White gave largely from his means for the support of church interests, and any enterprise looking to the advancement of education among the rising generation, and the establishment of good society. He was liberal because he loved to be, and because he seemed conscious of the perils of riches, and recognized Who it was that gave him power to get wealth.
He was one of the thirteen Directors of the consolidated Central Railroad Company and associated with Erastus Corning, at that time the head of the railway men of America.
The Courier and Enquirer at that time speaks thus of him: 'Horace White of Syracuse, is a banker, with keen sagacity, extending and enlarging his operations till he finds himself acknowledged among the front rank of financiers. He will give the Direction, the careful and far-seeing counsel of a man who has rigidly looked at the passing events and distinguishing the flash of the moment from the steady and the enduring light. Himself and his brother have made good use of their wealth. They ate of those citizens of our Western counties, who emulate the liberality and the enterprise of those men who in the great city are teaching the world that wealth appreciates intellect, admires art, and has its leaning of kindness towards the suffering."
In the year 1831, June 29th, he married Miss Clara, daughter of Andrew Dickson and Ruth Hall, the former a native of Massachusetts, and the latter a native of Connecticut.
They have two sons, Hon. Andrew Dickson White, one of the representative business men of the city of Syracuse. His wife still survives at the time of this sketch."
• Horace White was the Homer Town Supervisor in 1835. 156
