    Died, at his residence in Richland twp., Mon. morning, Dec. 15th, James McCague, Sen., aged 84 years and 2 months, after a long illness, and being blind 9 years.  His was a rare life of humble, Christian faith that never wavered.  He leaves a companion who is 6 months older, with whom he had lived 61 years.  Of their marriage they had 8 children, 5 surviving.  There are 34 grand-children and 49 great-grand-children living now I believe.  Their profession of faith made in their youth was in the Union Seceder branch of Presbyterianism, in Pennsylvania and Ohio.  He came to Dekalb Co. in 1848, and remained in the neighborhood ever since.
