The following is from the 1883 HISTORY OF HOCKING VALLEY(OH), pages 1059-1060:

William McCue was born in Augusta County, Va., in Upper Shenandoah Valley, on Middle River, April 4, 1818. His father, John McCue, was also a native of Augusta County. Our subject came to Morgan County, Ohio in 1830, and to Athens County in 1835.

The first threshing he did was in Morgan County, in 1832, with an old-fashioned one-horse tramp grubber, which was a great improvement on the flail and the tramping floor. The next machine he used was four-horse lever-power grubber.

In 1855 he came to Starr Township, which has since been his home. The first separator he used was a McConnelsville machine in 1858 or '59, built by Mr. Patterson and owned by Edmund Wolf and Joseph McDaniel. Since 1832 Mr. McCue has missed but three seasons from the dusty threshing machine, and he is known far and near as "Billy McCue, the thresher."

He was married in 1846 to Eliza Pierce, by whom he had one child---Catharine (now Mrs. Stump). Mrs. McCue died, and in 1856 he married Alma Terry, daughter of Robert Terry. They have had seven chldren, six living---Philene, Allen, Minerva, Julia, Robert and Viola.
