|19||02 Feb 1912 Jeanette Whitehouse Obituary Houston Valley Signal|
Jeannette Campbell was born Sept. 25th, 1924 at Krief [sic] Scotland, died Jan. 21, 1912. At the early age of seven years she came with her parents to this country. On Aug 28th 1842 she was united in marriage to Stowell Whitehouse. After a few years they emigrated from New York to Minnesota, coming here in the early fifties. Four children were born to them, three of whom are living. The husband and father passed away first, since which time the mother has been living among her children, her last home being with her son Chas. in this village.
At an early age she became idenfied with the M.E. church at Money Creek, of which she was a consistent member up to the time of her death. She died as she had lived, a true Christian. Always sympathetic and with a kind word for everyone; and when the gloom was thickest and sorrow pressed the hardest her kind words and cheery laugh never failed. The writer has known her for many, many years and we know whereof we speak.
She was stricken with pneumonia and only lived one week despite every attendance. Funeral services were conducted by REv. F. C. Bailey, first at her home, also in the Methodist Episcopal church, Money Creek, and then the body was conveyed to beautiful Evergreen Cemetery and laid to rest beside that of her husband. The figure of Grandma Whitehouse will be missed but the geain was her's and may she rest in peace.

|25||05 May 1932 Charlie Whitehouse Obituary|
Pioneer Business Man Passes Away
Chas. Vance Whitehouse, resident of Houston since 1879, Passes Away Saturday April 30th
The Grim Destroyer, Death, always an unbidden and unwelcome visitor, made a call at one of the happy homes in our village late last Saturday afternoon, April 30th, leaving it lonely and grief stricken and creating a vacant place that can never be filled. Reference is made to the death of Mr. Charles Vance Whitehouse a resident and business man of our village for the past fifty years.
Deceased was born in Money Creek on July 25, 1857, and at the time of his death had reached the age of seventy-four years, nine months and five days. He grew to manhood in Money Creek and on September 4, 1870, he was united in marriage to Miss Idella Robertson of this village. Their married life extended over a period of 53 years, all but one year of which was spent in this village. A bright memory in the life of Mr. and Mrs. Whitehouse was the celebration of their 50th wedding anniversary.
The first year of their married life was spent in Money Creek, they then moving to this village where Mr. Whitehouse operated a restaurant for one year but on account of ill health he was forced to give up the business and for a year did not work. In 1882, just fifty years ago, he opened a barber shop in Houston which he operated alone until his son, A.M. Whitehouse, was taken in as a partner, the most senior member retiring from acive work about four years ago when his health failed.
"Charle" as he was known to all, was a lover of nature and much of his spare time was spent in the nearby woods or streams, in hunting or fishing. He gained wide reaching fame for the training of bird dobs and his services were eagerly sought by local as well as distant sportsmen. He has always been keenly identified with all out-door sports whether it was horse racing, base ball, or any other form of sport and has given much of his time to promoting these activities.
For long years he held the position of assessor in our village, and his faitheful discharge of the important duties of this office and the esteem in which he was held is conclusively shown by the number of times he was elected to that position.
Mr. Whitehouse was a man of pleasing personality and had a cheerful word for all whom he met. He was a man who always looked on the bright side of life and his kindly companionship will be sadly missed by those who were used to meeting him in the daily walks of life. By his death his family loses a kind and affectionate husband and father and the community in which he lived for more than fifty years a good citizen and an excellent neighbor.
The deceased is survived by his sorrowing widow, three sons and three daughters, namely, A.M. Whitehouse, Houston; Mrs. R.J. Butler, Andover, Ohio; Mrs. Geo. Laugen, Houston; Mrs. N.A. hanson, St. Paul; Allen and Kenneth Whitehouse, Houston, all of whom were present at the funeral. Seven grandchildren also survive.
In tribute of their fellow citizen who had for the past many years been one of their co-workers, local business man closed their establishments from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. on Tuesday, the hour of the services.
Funeral services were held on Tuesday afternoon from the Whitehouse home in the village, Rev. C. S. McKinney of Caledonia officiating. The services at the grave in the Money Creek cemetery were in charge of the local Masonic Lodge of which the deceased had long been a member.
Our Beloved Dead
"Not dead but sleeping
Night came releasing them from labor
When a hand from out of darkness
Touched them and they slept."
