McCUE LEFT HIS ESTATE TO WIFE
Dr. James S. McCue of Corte Madera, who died at his Corte Madera home last week, has practically disinherited his daughter, Miss Etta McCue, a San Francisco school teacher and his son, Ralston, leaving to each the sum of $1, was made known, when upon the order of Judge T. J. Lennon, the children were empowered to open the safe-deposit box of the deceased at the Crocker National Bank of San Francisco, when it was found, it contained nothing but old account books and personal papers.
Later in the day Mrs. Kittie G. McCue, the wife, accompanied by her step-daughter, Etta, appeared before Judge Lennon, when Mrs. McCue exhibited a will drawn by the deceased on June 6, 1907, making her the sole heir and his testatrix without bonds.
It was found that McCue deeded during his lifetime all of his personal property to his wife, and that his sole property at the time of his death was a horse, valued at $250.
Letters of administration were granted to Mrs. McCue. It is understood that McCue’s deeds to his wife included a number of valuable pieces of real estate, besides money.
McCue is said [to] have lost $11,000 at the time of the California Safe Deposit and Trust Company’s suspension [of] business.
