The following is a newspaper article written in 1931:
Nears Ninety-Third Milestone
Mrs. Nancy Cauble, one of Washington county’s beloved and oldest residents will pass her ninety-third milestone, October tenth. Since the death of her husband, Charles Cauble, in August, 1928, Mrs. Cauble has resided with her daughter, Mrs. Ben Morris (Mary Cauble).
For a long period of years, Mr. and Mrs. Cauble continuously resided on a farm three miles northwest of Salem in the Highland neighborhood. Here their eight daughters grew to young womanhood, married and left to establish homes of their own.
Two of Mrs. Caubles daughters are deceased. Dora, the wife of Commodore Dawalt (also deceased) died a number of years ago and Vada, the wife of Walter Morris, died September of the current year at her home in Lansford, North Dakota.
The six daughters left to brighten their mother’s pathway are Mary, Mrs. Ben Morris and Jennie, Mrs. Tom Lewelling of Salem, Ind; Ella, Mrs. Sam Newlon of Louisville, Ky., Ethel, Mrs. Roy Rennick and Anna, Mrs. Wash Peugh, of Whitewater, Colorado, and Emma, Mrs. Frank York of Washington.
That many more happy years which may be allotted Mrs. Cauble, whose noble, unassuming character has been an inspiration to many, is the wish of innumerable friends here and else where in which the Democrat heartily and sincerely joins.

Charles Cauble Obituary
Charles Cauble, seventh son of a family of fifteen children was the son of Adam and Polly Cauble, pioneer settlers of Washington County. He was born October 8, 1832, passed quietly away August 15, 1923. He was born on the old Cauble homestead in sight of where he died, at the age of 90 years, 10 months, and 7 days. He was one of the most highly respected citizens of the Highland neighborhood, and had lived on the farm for the past 63 years.
He was married t Miss Nancy Gee almost 66 years ago, and they have lived a very happy life together, having spent their entire life in this community.
To this union was born nine children: Ella wife of Sam Newton, one son, Dora now deceased was the wife of Commodore Dewalt and mother of three sons, Jenny now the wife of Thos. Lewelling, only son, who died when he was 12 years old, Vada, wife of Walter Morris of North Dakota and mother of three sons and three daughters, Anna, wife of G.W. Peugh of Colorado and mother of one daughter and two sons, Mary wife of Ben Morris, one daughter, Ethel living in Colorado, wife of Roy Remick has one son and one daughter.
Uncle Charlie was a progressive farmer. He was very energetic and always worked hard. He was honest upright, and fair in his dealings. He was a good neighbor and no better father ever reared a family. He enjoyed company, liked music, and a good time, and always took delight in seeing the young folks have a good time. He lived a life that has been an uplift to the Highland neighborhood, an example for any community. No person was more true or attentive to his wife and family than Uncle Charlie. He leaves a very much devoted wife, seven daughters, 18 grandchildren, nine great grandchildren, two brothers, two sisters, and a host of friends to mourn his departure. By his works we know him.
Farewell! Farewell is often heard,
From the lips of those who part;
Tis a whispered tone tis a gentle word,
But it springs not from the heart.
It may serve for the lover's closing lay,
To be sung 'neath a summer sky
But give to me the lips that any
The honest words good-bye.
Go watch the pale and dying one,
When the glance has lost its gleam
When the brow is cold as marble atone
And the world a passing dream;
And the latest pressure of the hand
The look of the closing eye,
Yield what the heart must understand,
A long a last good-bye.
The funeral service for Mr. Cauble was held Sunday afternoon at 2 p.m. at their home, attended by a large body of people. The services were conducted by Rev. W.D. Bartle of New Albany, assisted by Rev. Oliver Trueblood and Rev. Fred Nixon both of whom were life long friends of the family. A quartet composed of Otto C. Zink, Harriett Zink, Mrs. G.B.
