NOTE: Reference notes from "Strong and Allied Families by Virginia Draffin Waites (1980, Chester Co., SC", indicate that John lived in Indiana before moving to Ohio. By the 1860 Census, it appears that John's son, George, lived in Iowa with his uncle, George (the 2nd), and his grandfather, George Sr..
John (born-1809) could not have been in the party of 1858. He died in 1855 on a trip to Iowa. The John mentioned as being with the party of 1858 was not this John, born in 1809.
" When John was twenty years old, in 1829, with the consent of his father, he was apprenticed for fifteen months to Samuel Sullivan of South Carolina to learn the wheelwright trade, which at that time was a very important occupation. However, as the families decided to move to Indiana before his apprenticeship had expired he was bought off and recommended as a man of good character and qualified for full journeyman's wages and he moved to Indiana with his family. But soon after arriving in Indiana he went to Zenia, Ohio and worked at his trade for a year. He then returned to Scott County, and rented a shop that was in the yard of Charles Elliott, and went to work at his trade for himself. At that time that part of Indiana was pretty much a wilderness; there were only a few small cleared sections with log cabins on them."
"John also purchased a small farm near Little York, Indiana, and a tract of 160 acres of land on the prairies of Mahaska County, Iowa. John and some other men started overland with wagon a team to see this Iowa land in the fall of 1855, but John took sick with malaria fever and died before reaching his land. His family was notified of his illness and his brother James had time to reach him before he died. He died at the home of David Clark on Nov. 18, 1855."

11. George (the 2nd) McCullough
Birth: 3 July, 1826, Chester Co., SC
(The 1860 Census indicates he was born in 1822-23- The 1880 Census list him as born in 1827)
On Oct. 15, 1850 when George was 24, he married Sarah Ann McKee, daughter of John McKee, (Aug 1783-17 Dec 1868) & Nancy Wilson, (Aug 1789-21 Mar 1863), in Preble Co., OH.. By 1852, this couple had moved to Indiana, where their first child, John McCullough (Sr.) was born in 1852.
Spouse: Sarah Ann Mckee
Born on Mar. 1, 1827 in Todd Co., KY. Sarah Ann McKee McCullough died in Page Co., Iowa, on Sept. 22, 1915; she was 87. Buried in the "Old" Grove Cemetery, Page Co. IA. (The 1860 Census indicates she was born in 1830, in Ohio. I believe this to be in error, and that she was born in 1827 in Todd Co., KY.. Sarah and George's headstone clearly states that Sarah was born on Nov. 1, 1827. The "Nov." indication is in conflict with the reports of "Mar." as being the correct month of her birth; see the photo of the headstone from the link provided below.))
Birth: Mar. 1, 1827, Todd Co., Kentucky
Death: Sept. 22, 1915, Page Co., Iowa
Married: Oct. 15, 1850, Preble, Ohio
NOTE: George (the 2nd) and Sarah A. McKee were part of the family members in the group that moved to Iowa with George Sr. in 1858.
12. Robert McCullough
Birth: 30 July, 1828, Chester Co., SC
Death: 13 Jan., 1901, Vienna, Scott Co., IN
Spouse: Emma E. Hildebrandt - born, Nov. 1, 1827.
Married: 11 June, 1869.
NOTE: Robert McCullough, and his bother George (2nd) made the trip from Indiana to Iowa with George Sr. McCullough's party of 1858. By the death records it would appear that he returned to Vienna, Scott Co., Indiana prior to his death in 1901 - (ref. Margaret Isabella Reid and Martha Elizabeth Fraquhar, sisters and g granddaughters of George Sr. McCullough. They compiled some of the family's history.)
A long with the above note, I need to point out that in 1860, a George McCullough (age 22) was living in the household of George the 2nd, as well as George Sr. (age 70). I believe this 3rd George to be of another generation down, and the son of John McCullough, brother to George (2nd). (see the above notes under "John McCullough" for more information about this.)
