Obituary

George McCue, who was hurt three weeks ago today by being thrown from a carriage, died on Tuesday afternoon of heart failure. His condition had been alarming for a week on account of a heart difficulty from which he had long suffered. The funeral will be attended from the Catholic church at 8:45 o’clock this (Friday) morning. A life-long acquaintance furnished these facts regarding his life: He was one of the youngest recruits to go to the front in 1861, Clay N. Dickinson and he being the boys of their company, and both enlisting from the town of Weybridge. Solon Eaton was their captain and A. S. Tracy, afterward colonel of the regiment, first lieutenant. Mr. McCue contracted rheumatism and was discharged, but upon his partial recovery he again enlisted in the famous First Vermont cavalry and served to the end of the war. At the time of his death he was 49 years of age. A native of County Tyrone, Ireland, he came here when six or seven years of age, became and always was a thorough American. He was long an energetic and prominent fireman and an ardent Grand Army man. He leaves a widow and six children. Dr. Hugh J. McCue, once a well-known veterinary surgeon, was his brother, and Mrs. J. H. Sargent of this village is a sister. Other sisters are Mrs. Kate Stapleton, Mrs. Nellie O’Connell and Miss Emma McCue of New York city and Mrs. Anna Swiney, wife of A. M. Swiney, V. S., of Holyoke, Mass.
