Pueblo County, Colorado

Contributed by Karen Mitchell.

Nathaniel S. White, a rancher living at Boone, was born in St. Louis county, Missouri, on the 5th of December, 1865, a son of Moses F. and Margaret (Walker) White. The father died when his son, Nathaniel S., was quite young. The three children of the family came first to Colorado in the year 1882 and the mother followed, joining them in this state, where her remaining days were passed. Nathaniel S. White pursued his education in the schools of Missouri and of Pueblo, Colorado, and went to work as a cowboy on the range, remaining with Mr. Lankford for eighteen years or more. He became familiar with every phase and experience of range life and when the Lankford interests were sold to the Thatcher Company he remained in the employ of the latter in the same vicinity for a number of years. At length, however, he embarked in business on his own account and is still interested in ranching and cattle raising. He has good property and a large herd and his long experience enables him to carefully direct his interests in a way that wins substantial success. In September, 1902, Mr. White was united in marriage to Miss Grace R. Johns, of Denver, and to them have been born two sons, Nathaniel Walker and Robert Johns. Mr. and Mrs. White give their political allegiance to the democratic party and the latter was appointed after civil service examination to the position of postmistress by President Wilson. Mr. White has been a delegate to the county conventions of his party. He is a home man, preferring the interests and companionship of his family rather than outside affairs. He belongs, however, to the State Grange and he is deeply interested in the welfare and progress of his community and of the state at large. His entire life has been given to ranching and his experiences cover every phase of life on the range in Colorado. History Of Colorado Illustrated Volume II Chicago The S. J.
