Alexander Y McCullough
This biography from Portrait and Biographical Record of Wayne and Appanoose Counties in IA pub. 1886, pg 452-453 contains several errors. I have 'corrected' it using information found in my own research. The subject is my grandfather Alexander Y. McCullough, however the name was misspelled at the time of the writing.

The original text in its entirety including the errors is included below my corrected version.

A.Y. McCullough, carpenter, and salesman for the firm of Baker & son, is a native of Hamilton County, Ohio, where he was born August 22, 1833, he being the eighth in a family of nine children of Franklin Y. and Mary A. (Carpenter) McCullough.

When he was three years of age he was taken by his parents to Kentucky, and eighteen months later to Jennings County, Indiana, where he lived till 1845. He then came to Iowa, and located in Wapello County, and in 1877 came to Wayne County, where has since resided, most of the time since coming here following the carpenter’s trade in Jackson Township.

Mr. McCullough was united in marriage, January 25, 1854. to Rebecca Mace, she being a native of Muskingum County, Ohio, and a daughter of Simeon and Nancy (Lamar) Mace.

Mr. and Mrs. McCullough are the parents of twelve children, whose names are as follows-Mary A., Olive J., Amanda L., Jonathan F., William R., Lucinda M., Elizabeth H., Helen M., James B., Hannah J., Lydia E., Oliver M.

Mr. and Mrs. McCullough are earnest members of the Methodist Episcopal church, and highly respected members of society.
