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.

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.
