P. S. M'CUALSKY DIES, BELPRE - Prominent Resident of Ohio Village Succumbs to Long Illness; Native of Scotland -- Peter Stuart McCualsky, one of Belpre's most prominent citizens, succumbed to an extended illness at his residence at 303 Main street this morning at 12:45. Mr. McCualsky had been in ill health for the past three years but it was only in recent weeks that he became bedfast and on his 80th birthday anniversary last March 29 he was able to enjoy a quiet celebration with his family. They were with him at his death this morning and he passed away as peacefully as he had lived his long and useful life. Mr. McCualsky was born at Campbeltown, Argyllshire, Scotland in 1857 the seventh of a family of ten sons. There he grew to young manhood, working for four years in a drug store. On his twenty-first birthday, fifty-nine years ago, he came to America with his widowed mother and four of his brothers and the family settled at Belpre. There he spent the remainder of his life, except for a short interval spent in Pennsylvania and his more than a half century of residence there had brought him universal esteem and regard and his fine qualities as a husband, a father and as a citizen, made him generally beloved. Mr. McCualsky was employed for many years on the Ohio river division of the Baltimore and Ohio railroad, retiring some years ago and as an avocation he did fine inlay and cabinet work, becoming an artist in that line. He was a member and faithful attendant of the Congregational church, seeing that church and his home village grow from a small beginning to the thriving congregation and community they are today. Fifty years ago Mr. McCualsky married Miss Sarah Ann Oliver, a member of a pioneer family of that community and had he lived they would have celebrated their golden wedding in December. To them were born seven children, a daughter, Mary May, dying in infancy. Surviving him are his wife and six sons and daughters who are Mrs. William H. Reid, Mrs. Daisy Statham, D. O. McCualsky and H. Barclay McCualsky, all of Belpre; Donald B. McCualsky of St. Marys; and Mrs. Henry Ruf of Parkersburg. Two brothers, James A. McCualsky of Belpre, and William McCualsky of Parkersburg, and eight grandchildren also survive. He has one niece, Mrs. John McLaren whose home is at Broom Brae, Campbeltown, Argyllshire, Scotland. The funeral service will be conducted Sunday afternoon at 2:30 from the family home on Main street with the Rev. Mrs. G. I. Wilson, pastor of the Belpre Congregational church, and her husband, Dr. G. I. Wilson of the First Presbyterian church of Parkersburg, officiating. Interment will be made in the Rockland cemetery.
