      OLDEST CITIZEN DIES AT NINETY

      B. G. MeKay Dies at Home in This City, Due to Advanced Age

      With the death of B. Gurney McKay last Saturday, this city loses its oldest citizen and a man whose lifetime spans ninety years, which compass the advent of many inventions and discoveries that have by use come to be considered the necessities
      of daily life. In 1818 there were no railroads or steamboats in use in this country, no matches, at least none corresponding to those now in common use. The telegraph, the daily paper, not to speak of the ocean telegraph cable, the telephone, the harvesting machine and mower, sewing machine and an endless catalogue of simple and complex machines and articles of daily use in the life of today were not in existence in 1818. Mr. MeKay's boyhood was spent in Onondaga county, New York. and be was fond of telling about his recollections of the time preceediug (sic) the construction of the Erie canal and the objections made to the enterprise by the mossbacks of his neighborhood, on the ground that the canal would put the teamsters and horses out of business. His name shows that he was of Scotch descent. and this fact helps explain his childlike religious nature and his habit of answering all hints as to his need of anything in his old age by the observation that the Lord would take care of him.

      The statement that Mr. McKay's grandfather was a soldier in the war for American independence and that his grandmother was an Indian captive at the period of the Wyoming massacre in Pennsylvania helps us to realize how young our country is.

      Mr. McKay was married to Miss Triphena Stevens in 1841, and came west to Wisconsin in 1867, the following year taking a claim in Renville county, near Beaver Falls, where he remained until 1885, since which time he has made this city his home. Here his aged helpmate died in 1891, with only three of seven children born to them surviving. They are Mrs. Angie Earle of Seattle, Wash., Mortimer L. of Cable, Wis., and Harlan P. of this city.

      Mr. McKay has been in feeble health for a year or more, and the final change came almost inperceptibly (sic). He became unconscious Saturday noon, and the feeble lamp of life flickered out at a little past two o'clock the morning following.

      Mr. McKay was for many years an elder in the Presbyterian church of this city, and was buried from that church, kind ladies of the church contributing to make the last service, conducted by the pastor, R. F. Chambers, a very pretty as well as impressive one.
