George Henry White
WHITEBORO - in 1899, George Henry White (1852-1918), an African American republican congressman from North Carolina (served from 1896 and he was re-elected in 1898) went in 1899 to Whitesboro, Cape May County, New Jersey, and, with five associates, bought 1700 acres of a large plantation which he divided and resold. In 1905, White moved to Philadelphia and established the People's Savings Bank. By 1906, the population of Whiteboro was 800, 300 of which were living in single-family houses. Their income was primarily from farming, the local sawmill, and fishing. White and his bank provided easy financing terms to purchase and build homes.
