Martin Mathias White

Undertaker , Casket maker and seller Washington, DC 1845-1868

 

 

We believe the White family may have originally hailed from Wales. What we do know is that Martin Mathias White was born in Maryland in 1813. A family story tells us that he worked as an apprentice to Anne Arundel co., Maryland undertaker and was possibly involved in the funeral of a Deale family member.

At the funeral he was introduced to Ellen Deale ; who was a  family member of the deceased. We can't prove that but we do know that Martin Mathias White and Ellen Deale were married in Anne Arundel co., on the 25th January 1834. They remained there until 1845 when the family moved to Washington DC.

According to the DC city directory M. M. White  is listed as having a "coffin warehouse" on the south side of Pennsylvania Ave between 3rd and 4 1/2 th  streets N.W. ( later identified as 457 Pennsylvania) The property during those early years seem to have been used as their home, coffin warehouse, undertaking parlor and extensive wood working shop.

He seems to have been very prosperous and even ran a weekly advertisement in the Washington Star newspaper (in 1856) boasting, among other things,  to be the sole agent in Washington D.C.  for Fisk's Patent Airtight  Metallic Burial Cases "Coffins" . ( The coffins were made of solid cast iron, very elaborate and ornate) later manufactured by Crane Co.

There are frequent mentions of Mathias White , undertaker in the burial records of Congressional Cemetery. That is also where M. M. White, Ellen Deale White and many other family members are buried.
