From a 1902 Nance County, Nebraska, newspaper clipping file, publication date unknown, transcribed by Linda Berney:

Orris McCay was born 66 years ago in Indiana. At the age of 12 years he moved with his parents to Illinois where he lived for 40 years. In 1888 he came to Nebraska and has remained here ever since, having lived in Fullerton several
years, but at the time of his death was a resident of Greeley county.

He was taken sick with pneumonia last Thursday while visiting at the home of his nephew, Jack McCay, eight miles north of town, and succumbed to the disease Tuesday morning at ten o'clock. Mr. McCay was widely known throughout the
county and leaves hosts of friends.

A wife and four children survive him, Walter, who lived at home, Mrs. Dan Hinton of Greeley county and two daughters in Illinois, one of whom, Mrs. Wright, attended the funeral, which was held from the Methodist church Thursday morning.
The services were in charge of the Masons, Rev. Ring of Lincoln who was a personal friend of the deceased and had baptized him, preaching the sermon. The funeral was largely attended, attesting the universal esteem in which he was
held.
