From Newspaper article the first white child born in the Shelburne
She had no Children
I can remember being told that she died of malnutrition, although she
had a reasonable estate. She did not want to use up the principle in
her estate.

The following is a brief story which was told to me by my father
(Arthur Henry White)

Arthur Henry White & Roy Coleman had been charged with settling the
Adeline Dixon Estate. One of the tasks was to list the contents of
the Dixon house. It was during this process that, in the basement,
they found a number of bottles of what appeared to be a very
expensive brand of brandy. The labels on the bottles clearly
indicated a fine quality of brandy... but this was a serious task and
one or the other of the two men was not convinced that the labels
could be trusted. The two men agreed that the only proper course, to
ensure the accuracy of the list they were compiling, was to verify
the contents. And so one of the bottles was properly opened and each
of them tested the liquid. Wishing to make no mistakes, they
continued the testing until the bottle was empty. This left them
satisfied that the label on the bottle had indeed been correct. But;
as they began to consider returning to their task, they were struck
with the realization that just because the label on this bottle had
been correct, that was not necessarily absolute evidence that the
remaining labels were of equal veracity.....
