81 (The following obituaries and poems were found in the McCutchin Family Bible.)

Death visited a happy home at Mill Creek last Friday night and claimed as his own a bright sweet child, we refer to little Roy, the two year old son of Mr. and Mrs. John McCutchin, stricken down by the reaper, death, ere he had fully bloomed as it were, his little form seemed surrounded by the halo of glory. Roy lay in the beautiful casket as if asleep, with peace indelibly stamped on his features and death was robbed of all its terrors. A loving, sweet child in life he seemed an angel in death. The funeral took place Sunday afternoon, Rev. Hubbart officiating. During the Sermon the audience was bathed in tears. A large crown had gathered to pay their last respects to little Roy.

Beautiful spirit free from all stain, Our the heart ache sorrow and pain, Thine is the glory and infinite gain, Thy slumber is sweet.

The community mourn his loss and unite their tears with those of the parents, and while feeling greatly the loss of one so sweet and dear, yet borne in submission to the will of Him who doeth all things well.
(From another obit article) He was in usual good health until Monday, when his throat became swollen and inflamed, at first it was not thought serious, but it terminated to croup and inflammation.

IN MEMORIAL
Roy McCutchin, Died Mar. 30.

Precious Roy, you have left us,
All thy sufferings now are o'er--
You have crossed the stream before.
We shall meet on earth no more.

Roy, little bud of promise,
Like choicest flowers in bloom,
They wreathed around thy casket,
When they took Thee to the tomb.

O'er thy cold form were bending.
Loving parents in their grief;
O, how they wept with sorrow,
That thy life should be so brief.

Thou art gone, still thy memory,
Sweet as Fragrance of the rose.
We'll always fondly cherish,
Until life with us is closed.

Fare Thee well, we shall meet Thee,
when life's fitful dreams are o'er;
When loved ones shall meet with,
On that bright, celestial shore.
S. A. M.
 
McCutchin, Hugh Roy (I12172)
 
82 (This is a writing from Angeline about her ancestors home)

Men seeks naturally the fine and the good. My great-grandfather found it and took possession of it.

Along the shores of the Baie-Des-Chaleurs, Gaspe Peninsula, where Indians roamed at will, stood my father's house. It was built in 1700 by my Great-great grandfather, a German sailor who had skipped his ship and found refuge in this primitive land. It was a massive structure, hewn from virgin timber off his land, architecturally a Cape-Cod design, two stories high. The front of the house boasted three large windows with broad window sills on which heavy flower pots of geraniums nestled. The main front entrance door was large with three glass panels framed in. The whole house was white in color except for the huge porch and the steps leading to the entrance which were painted a beautiful battleship grey. The pebbled walk-ways went around the building and into the prolific garden of vegetables and bushes which bore Lucious berries. The artistic picket fence added a special distinction. Surrounding all of this were giant trees whose branches spread their cover over all this precious area, becoming sentinels, or so it seemed, protecting it from the unwelcome guests.

The large parlor, nicknamed "museum", had in effect such various and colorful contents given by friendly Indians or bought from immigrants or brought from other countries, becoming indeed a "mouth watering" experience for all viewers. The walls were of wood, painted white. Delicate patterned white lace curtains framed the windows and a light sea breeze gave them perpetual motion. Hung on the walls were ancestral pictures of four generations. Sofas, chairs were beautifully designed and hand-made with lovely cherry wood. A round table stood in the middle of the room. Its cover was of rose silk, embroidered with gold thread. On its top rested the Bible, the sacred record of births, marriages, deaths of past and present generations. A treasured hand viewer with packs of colorful sceneries, etc., claimed an important place in the midst of important but very sentimental souvenirs. This grandiose parlor was opened only for special occasions or special guests; such as the Pastor of the Church, provincial politicians who ran for office and for a special beau on the first date. (The latter depended heavily on the Matriarch's mood!) This room was also used as a funeral parlor on the occasion of a death in the family.

A second parlor, not quite as large was for special entertaining. It boasted a piano, easy chairs, tables, books, games and the various items needed for the amateur magician. It was the room for the young.

A large "pot belly stove" kept the huge dining room comfortable. This room was also used for doing hand crafts, studies and as a place of refuge. The warm glow reflected by this devouring monster which never seemed to get its fill of hand cut, sawed, chopped and split wood was peaceful and so relaxing! We children under the watchful and busy eye of mother, would study our school lessons and do the homework required. Mother's knitting needles would fly as she knitted mittens, caps, sweaters, stockings, socks, and scarves with wool she had personally sheared, washed, carded and spun.

Through the arch, opposite the parlor, was a bedroom which was sur-named Birth and Death center. A mixed atmosphere of great happiness and deep sorrow was in this room. Mothers would give birth to their children; seriously ill children and elders would breathe their last breath in this room. It was tastefully furnished, On one side of the wall, a mini-size potbelly stove was seen. The coverlets and rugs were all made from my mother's loom. In here grand-papa would keep a large homemade trunk all his precious treasures which the twins (my sister and I) would occasionally be the recipients of.

Now we come to that part of the structure which was the kitchen. It was the greatest center of activities for the whole house. On one end of it stood a massive iron stove. Besides providing the needed heat for weather which often went 40 degrees below zero in winter, this cook stove had an extremely large surface and an enormous appetite for wood. On its huge top surface my mother would prepare the meals for the day. I was from a family of twelve children, three had died before my birth, and occasionally one or two of my brothers would be away for short periods of time and two older sisters had married, but including my parents the count around the table was nine, a big number for us and this meant twenty-seven meals a day not counting a repast in the middle of the afternoon. this kitchen was the site of numerous activities alien to all the others. Nightly the neighbors would gather eager to hear and share the current news. The entertainer friend would lift our mind and spirit by his vivid, descriptive fairy tales. Then the sound of card players slapping their cards down on the wood table with a great laughter and cheers from the winners. Once these games were over, my beloved father would sit with his fiddle and play a few jigs to be enjoyed by all. The evening over, all parted to return again the next night to repeat the same scene. It was always such a fun time. We were not allowed to participate in these joyous activities until our home work was finished. These were the most enjoyable days of my growing up.

This old house had many face lifts through the years and in 1925 my oldest brother tore it down completely (he was the new owner) and used the timber to build a more modern home for that period. This beautiful old house which gave comfort and security to many generations has succumbed to progress.

Nicolas Cook was married to Angeline's sister Marie Marthe Stibre. He was, also, her husband Leo's uncle. When Angeline married Leo, Nicholas Cook became her uncle and to Leo his brother-in-law.

William Coffey, deceased, for many years a farmer of the town of Cottage Grove, was born in Boston, Mass.. July 22, 1840. His parents were Patrick and Annastasia (Lantry) Coffey, both natives of Ireland.

The family immigrated to the United States when Mr. Coffey was a boy, coming directly to Cottage Grove township, where they entered two eighties of government land. The old folks lived the balance of their lives in Cottage Grove.

What opportunities Mr. Coffey had for obtaining an education were very limited, being only those afforded by the district schools of Cottage Grove. During the early part of his manhood he traveled much. After his marriage he earned a livelihood for himself and family by working land on shares for several years, managing, by frugality and hard work, to accumulate sufficient money to purchase one hundred acres of land, where the widow and family now reside.

Politically he was a Democrat and as such served his town as assessor and justice of the peace. His religious affiliations were with the Catholic church.

On February 20, 1865, Mr. Coffey married Susan Ann Reynolds, daughter of Daniel and Mary Ellen (Reynolds) of the town of Cottage Grove. (For further mention of Mrs. Coffey's family see the sketch of Daniel Reynolds). Five children blessed this union - Mary Ellen, born December 16, 1865, the wife of John Coughlin of Cottage Grove ; William James, born November 14, 1867, a carpenter by trade, married Catherine Murphy, and is now a resident of Yale, S. D. ; Daniel Edward, born May 29, 1871, a carpenter by trade and an accomplished violinist, lives at home; John Albert, born December 29, 1878, lives at home; and Susan Ann, born September 30, 1881. The youngest daughter is a teacher; she received her preparatory education in the district school of the town of Cottage Grove and was given a teacher's certificate at the Whitewater Normal school five years ago, since which time she has been engaged in her profession.

All the children are musically inclined, and all play some instrument, violin or piano. Miss Susie plays both the piano and violin.

Mr. Coffey died April 10, 1897. He was a sterling, upright citizen, of frugal habits, a man much admired and respected by all with whom he came in contact.
