Martha (McNeil) McCue, the mother of R. M. McCue, was born in Greenbrier County, Virginia, in 1810, and died on May 13, 1854. The following is quoted from remarks concerning the life of Mrs. McCue by Mrs. N. G. Cruzen, written in the Northwest History of Missouri: "Martha (McNeil) McCue, the mother of this very large family of 18 children underwent many trials and much privation in the rearing of her family. Can you imagine such a great mother love as she possessed? She brought up her family in a log cabin, shut in by the great wilderness of the prairie land. Beside the enormous task of mothering her children, Mrs. McCue even wove the material for their clothing. She carded the wool by hand, spun it on a big wheel, reeled it on a count wheel, dyed, wove, cut and made the garments for her entire family. She did this work by the light of a tallow candle. She communed in silent prayer with her God and touched each touseled head, fastened each little shoe, and bent to kiss each childish hurt. She was indeed a wonderful mother."
