He was united in marriage with Miss Martha Frances Hyatt at Augusta, Ohio, in 1905. They moved from Ohio to Pawnee County, Kansas, and came to Comanche County in 1909, moving to their farm east of Coldwater where they continued to live.

Mr. McCauley is survived by his wife and two daughters, Mrs. Edith Peak of Manhattan, Kans., and Mrs. Helen Currier of Coldwater; also by two grandsons, Richard Peak and Robert Currier, and one brother, Ed McCauley, of Minerva, Ohio. One son, Chester Harold, who was born in Pawnee County, died in 1927.

He was a kind and devoted husband and father and a good neighbor. The sympathy of the community is extended the bereaved family.
