Thanks for quick response Arlene. I've no idea of where these Ripley Co., MO McCullough came from yet - but I'm working on it. Your clue of the McGraw connection took me back to census of Ripley Co. and there was a James McGraw on the 1870 census index - not on 1860. I will check with lookup person for 1870 to get family. There had to be family close by there somewhere on that 1860 census - but Civil War hard on Ripley Co. Will let you know if I find a connection.
