Still looking for information on my ancestor E.L. McCullough. He worked in the woolen mills as a wool carder and spinner. He was born about 1829 in NY (per census) parents and siblings unknown. Me married Elizabeth A. Williams in New York abt 1848. She was also born abt 1829 parents and siblings unknown.

Records I have found on the family

He probably worked at the Elmira Woolen Mfg Co which was at Factory E of Sullivan in Elmira

I believe the above 1880 record in Trempealeau county to be my Edwin though the year of birth is off. Someone in the Allen family could have guessed at his date of birth.

Edwin died on November 1, 1895 in Baraboo, Sauk, Wisconsin his wife Elizabeth died May 24, 1894.

Nov 17 1923 Baraboo Republic

Mrs. Alice A. Gollmar
On Monday afternoon the funeral services of Mrs. Alice A. Gollmar were held at her late home on Fifth avenue. A very large number of relatives, friends, neighbors and lodge members were present also relatives and friends from out of town, among whom were a nephew, Frank Kerr of Chicago., Mrs. Al White and daughter Carmen, Madison; and Mr & Mrs Walter Groth and daughter of Mineral Point WI.

The large number of beautiful flowers signified the high esteem in which she was held. She was an active member for many years of the Order of Eastern Star, also Mabel Rebecca, the latter of which she had been a member for about 23 years.

Rev H. Harris of the First Congregational church officiated and Mr. & Mrs. Stanley offered beautiful hymns among which was "Face to Face" a favorate hymn of the deceased.

Alice McCullough came to Baraboo at the age of fifteen years with her parents from Elmira New York and has been a resident here since. She was born at Bath New York, August 24 1852 and married Jacob C. Gollmar in Sept 1871, who passed away in May 1896. The oldest son Claude H. Gollmar passed away Nov 2 1909. One daughter Mrs. E.V. Hocum and two other sons, Willis and Bert survive. Also 4 grandchildren, Mrs. Walter Schacht, Lucille Hocum and Genevive Gollmar, (and Beatrice Gollmar) and one great granddaughter, little Virginia Schacht, all of Baraboo.
