CHECOTAH ITEMS - R. C. (Cub) McIntosh, one of the city's oldest and best known citizens, answered the final summons last Saturday.
Mr. McIntosh was about the streets Friday apparently in good health and during the evening went into Cap McIntosh's room in the fire station to lie down. Failure to arise Saturday morning revealed the fact that during the he had without a struggle crossed the great divide.
Cub, as he was familiarly known in Checotah, served two terms as district judge of the Eufaula district under Chief Isparhista of the Creek Nation during the old territorial days. He was one of the leaders in the Indian affairs and as a consequence was well known throughout eastern Oklahoma and especially the Creek nation.
Mr. McIntosh was born about eight miles west of Muskogee April 22, 1858, being 62 years, 8 months and 12 days of age at the time of death. Practically his entire life was spent in and near this city, the last 18 years being resident of Checotah.
He was united in marriage to Miss Fannie Atkins and to this union was born seven children, Roley C. (Ned), Hector, of Okmulgee, Mrs. John G. Hendricks, of Ft. Smith, Ark., John Randolph, Sequoyah James, Chessie, and Fannie Owen, of this city, who with the devoted wife survive to mourn his loss.
He also leaves one brother, Hun McIntosh of this city and one sister, Mrs. E. J. Smith of Eufaula, and three half-brothers and two half-sisters.
The funeral was held from the late home Monday afternoon, following which the body was taken to Green Lawn cemetery and tenderly laid to rest.
