He was married to Miss Mabel Truman March 22nd, 1843, in the town of York, Ohio. To them were given three children, two of these dying in early childhood. He is survived by the wife of his youth, who is greatly afflicted by the loss of her eyesight, and his daughter, Mrs. Maxwell, of Arlington. Mr. McCabe followed the occupation of farming many years.
