     John E. McCullough was the descendant of sturdy Scotch ancestors who settled in Virginia, and were identified with American history at an early period. His father, Samuel McCullough, came to Sidney in 1835 and was intimately connected with its interests for nearly sixty years. A Presbyterian of the blue-stocking type, he would have suffered martyrdom for his religion.
     John was born in Sidney, September 14, 1852, was educated in the public schools, studied law with James McKercher and was admitted to the bar in 1884. He had a clear-cut mind, his powers well in hand, was a positive character and the. soul of geniality and generosity.
     He married Miss Anna Duncan January 22, 1874, and had two sons, Ben and Sam. He died July 30, 1886, at the beginning of a life of bright promise.
