Did you ever find the answer to your question? I am looking for where Samuel McCollum came from. I have him as married to Catharine Culp in Pennsylvania. In the 1880 census he appears in white Deer, Union County, PA. His daughter Susan is my great grandfather. She married Willilam Hampel. Samuel fought in the Mexican American War as well as the Civil War. I am also looking for his relative (not sure of the relationship), maybe a cousin who lived in Watsontown, PA. Lewis was a Major in the confederacy (Mosourri) and was a prisoner of war at Camp Chase, Ohio. My Mother (94 yrs. old) said the Lewis McCollum and owned the house in Watsontown. And I recall her having a picture of a confederate major in her photo collection. Thank you.
