I took a look at your website and have something you might be interested in. Amos Jasper Frampton, brother of Elizabeth Jane, was my 2nd great-grandfather. My grandmother had a note which I think referrs to the McCollough house. The note is as follows:

"The Rankin House is on a lot 60 X 100 feet that was part of the original Warrant 6939 granted to Jacob McFadden on March 6, 1812 by the State of Pennsylvania. He in turn sold it to Joseph Barnett in 1815, who sold it to John Mitchell that same year. John Mitchell sold it to William Frampton in 1834. William Frampton died in 1882 and his widow Mary Williams Frampton deeded it to her daughter Elizabeth Frampton McCullough and husband William McCullough in 1884. It then became the property of Joseph Craig Rankin by deed in 1889 from Eliza Jane McCullough and William McCullough. Joseph Craig Rankin married Arazella Arbitha Fleming on April 2, 1873. Arazella Fleming was the daughter of John W. Fleming of Mechanicsville. Joseph Craig Rankin and Dellas 5 boys and 4 girls were raised in this house."

The "Rankin" house may have become a secondary property to the one you mentioned in your site. Just thought you might like the information if you did not already have it.
