The Sidney Daily News
Monday, July 31, 1916
After an extended illness extending over a period of several months, Mrs. Rachel McCune, a pioneer resident of Sidney and Shelby county, died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. O.B. Taylor, on south Ohio Avenue, Monday morning at 8 o'clock of general debility, aged eighty-three years. On account of her advanced age she had been in feeble health for a long time, but retained her mental faculties to the last, speaking to the members of her family, who were at her bedside, only a few minutes before she passed away.
With the death of Mrs. McCune, one of the oldest residents of Sidney has passed into the great beyond. She was born in Sidney March 15, 1833, and resided in this city all her life. She was a daughter of Thomas and Matilda English, pioneer settlers, and is the last of the sturdy old English family of seven children to pass away. Her father fomerly conducted a saw mill upon the ground where the court house now stands.
On May 4, 1854 she was united in marriage to Samuel McCune and for many years they resided at the McCune homestead on Mt. Auburn at the northern end of this city. Six children were born to them: Mrs. John Orr, of Sidney; Mrs. H.R. Bell of Mansfield; Mrs. O.B. Taylor, of Sidney, and Wilbur S. McCune, of Los Angeles, California. Two children are deceased, Thomas and Hattie. Her husband died suddenly December 27, 1892.
Mrs. McCune was a woman of a wonderful memory and loved to tell of the pioneer days in Sidney through which she had lived. Her thoughts were always for others and with her passing a beautiful Christian character has gone to its reward.
She had been a member of the First Presbyterian Church since childhood, and until recently was a regular attendent at the church services and always took a great interest in church work.
The funeral services will be heldat the Taylor home on south Ohio avenue Wednesday afternoon at 3:30 o'clock. Interment at Graceland cemetery.
