Robert McCaig obituary, transcribed by Earl W. Hoffman, 25 January 2004 from the Centrlia Journal, 17 March 1905:
"Robert McCaig, one of the old settlers of Nemaha county died Friday afternoon, March 10, 1905 at the home of his son, James McCaig, in Centralia. The funeral services were held Saturday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock in the M. E. church, conducted by Rev. Browning. Interment was in the Centralia cemetery. Robert McCaig was born in Miffin county, Pennsylvania February 19, 1924 (sic), where he lived and grew to manhood. He was married to Miss Elizabeth Isenberg in 1849 at the old Pensylvania home. About one year later he moved to Champion (sic) county, Ohio with his young wife and here made their home for several years. Two children were born to them in the Ohio home, William and James. In the year 1863 with his family he moved to Prairie Home, Shelly (sic) county, Illinois. Here the family made their home for a number of years. In the Illinois home three more children were born, Mary, Laura and George. In the year 1878, with his family, Mr. McCaig moved to Nemaha county, Kansas, which has since been his home. His children grew to manhood and womanhood around him. He saw them married and start homes for themselves and happy grand-children and great-grand-children made pleasant his declining years. His wife died January 24, 1895, and since her death he has made his home with his son George at the old home place south of town. Early last spring he suffered a stroke of paralysis. From this stroke he rallied and enjoyed very good health for one of his age, but about five weeks ago he suffered the second stroke of paralysis. He was brought to the home of his son, James, here in Centralia, where he was tenderly cared for until is death. All of his children, but one, survive him and he has one brother still living. He offered a fervent prayer, bade all good bye and went in peace to his God."
