McCullough Family Genealogy
News: this site has moved to our new address: http://www.mccullough.nl . No new updates here since May 26, 2006. Please bookmark new link!
Welcome to the McCullough Family History site!
Not a McCullough? Don't click away just yet! A sampling of the other surnames with quite a bit of information are: Frampton, Broom, Lyon, Hays, Thomas, Ross, Dufford, Brinton, McKee and Foster. Not to mention the "Mystery" section, dedicated to those unsolved ancestor puzzles we all have.
The site is updated regularly, so please check back for added info. Current areas of special research are William Frampton (1646 - 1686) and the burning question of whether the original McCullough immigrant was James or Hugh McCullough in the mid-1700's.
Who can I find here and how can I find it?
Under each of these Branch tabs, there are additional families:
What can I find here?
This site focuses on the ancestors of the William McCullough (b. 1923) family, who have lived primarily in central and western Pennsylvania for the last 200 years. In addition to the usual names and dates, I have tried to include copies of documents, photos and additional stories where possible. Clarion, Jefferson, Butler & Armstrong Counties are the most common locations in Western Pennsylvania. In the late 1600's and 1700's, common locations were Chester and nearby areas in Philadelphia, Delaware, Maryland and New Jersey. European locations include England, Scotland, Ireland, the Netherlands and Germany. In most cases, the data goes back to the 1600's or earlier.
There is also a section on "Mysteries": places where I have gotten stuck in my research and pictures, particularly of the McCullough family taken between 1850 & 1890 that I cannot identify. I hope that by sharing my information, I will help others solve their own mysteries and that perhaps someone else will help solve mine.
AcknowledgmentsI'd like to think I have gathered some interesting information, though! Much of my material comes from family papers and pictures which fortunately have survived the years. I also want to thank my many newly discovered "cousins" who have contributed from their research. They are mentioned (if they wished) where relevant in the various sections.
Since I live in the Netherlands and am researching U.S. data, I have also made use of some Internet sources. These are not always accurate, but I have done my best to separate fact from fiction, and where possible, I have indicated the difference between fact and speculation. Not all sources for all data are on the website to prevent it from becoming too large. Email if you would like an unlisted source.
Please feel free to use information from this site, but I would appreciate it if you would credit me and/or the person I list as the source. I will try to answer queries as soon as possible, but please be patient!
