March 10, 1902 Elkader Register. (CLAYTON COUNTY, IOWA)

Peter McCue

The uncertainty of life is again illustrated in the death of our friend, Peter McCue. Monday last he was apparently in his usual health, when at noon he was taken suddenly ill and Thursday morning, Feb. 20th, passed away in that sleep that knows no awakening in this life.

Peter McCue was born in County Mead (s/b Meath), Ireland, May 5th, 1832. Coming to this country in 1847, at the age of 15 years, he remained in New York City until 1855, when he came to Clayton county. The same year he was married, at Elkader, to Ann Malone, who survives him. Mr. McCue worked in the Elkader mill for six or seven years after his arrival here, and then settled on the farm one and one half miles northeast of here, where he resided until two years ago when he moved to Elkader. He is survived by his wife and six children, J.S. and Anna, of Des Moines; T.F. and S.J. of Carrington, N.D., Mrs. Val Wagner, of Emmetsburg, and Mamie, of this place. All were present at the funeral.

Mr. McCue was among our early settlers, and was respected by all. After years of toil he came to Elkader to enjoy the pleasures of a well earned rest. Providence has ruled that his earthly rest was to be short and we must bow to Him that doeth all things well. May he rest in peace.

The funeral was held Sunday morning at St. Joseph's Church, Rev. J.F. Reilly, the rector, officiating.
