My information was given to me by Ethel McCulle Hodnett, who did extensive research in the archives in Washington,DC and documented everything she wrote. However I do not have her documentation. She said that Bryan McCullen,1st, came to NC from Larne, County Antrim, Ireland.He had several sons, one of whom is Bryan McCullen,II. Bryan McCullen,II was born in Dobbs County,NC,[now Wayne County] 12/22/1755. Said that he married Clarissa [Clarky,or Clarcy] Maguire in 1778 [or1776] I think this is the same person? If so I have information about this Bryan. Don't know how the last name for his wife got changed or whether it is the same person. Let me know if you are interested in more information or if you are sure I am on the wrong track.
