John Matthews McCabe, one of the well known lawyers of Toledo, is a partner in the law firm of Denman, Kirkbride,
Wilson & McCabe. He was born on the 4th of February, 1884, in Tippecanoe, Indiana, his parents being Jacob
and Charlotte (Matthews) McCabe. He was reared by his maternal grandparents at Delphos, Ohio, and pursued his early
education in the schools of that place, while later he attended the Western Reserve University at Cleveland, receiving
his LL. B. degree upon graduation from that institution with the class of 1910. Through the intervening period
he has devoted his attention to active practice, and while advancement at the bar is proverbially slow, he has
been successful and as a member of one of the most prominent law firms of the city he has been connected with much
important litigation. He is likewise well known in the educational field, having been an instructor in the Toledo
Law School since 1912. He is not only well grounded in the principles of the law but has had wide experience in
the courts and is accounted an able advocate and safe counselor.
In September, 1912, Mr. McCabe was united in marriage to Miss Leona B. McCabe of Delphos, Ohio, and they have become
parents of two children: John Matthews, Jr., and Virginia Pauline.
Fraternally Mr. McCabe is connected with the Masons. He also has membership with the Lawyers' Club and his name
is on the membership list of the Lucas County Bar Association and the Ohio State Bar Association.
