    In looking up war records it is found that Franklin McCue and his brother served in Col. James McDowell's company from Agusta county during the Second War with Great Britain, from 30th Aug. 1814, to 30th Nov. of the same year. The home of Col. McCue was originally an "Old Fort," it was so used during the French and Indian wars and later in the Revolution, the portholes may be seen today, just as they were then.

    Col. McCue was an active and conscientious member of the Presbyterian church, where he was long Presiding Elder and a leader in the Sabbath School ; in which latter branch of church life he took deep interest Nothing afforded him more pleasure than to talk to the children and to lead in the singing. He was noted over the country for his intellect, piety and integrity. It was during one of his campaigns for the Legislature when he had just finished his speech on a special measure before the people and was retiring from the platform, when an Irishman on the front row, an old acquaintance, said, "Now for the Doxology. "
