Re: McCulloch family of Jefferson Co. Mo.
Minerva C. McCulloch was the daughter of James McCulloch and possibly Catherine Brown of Big River, Jefferson co., MO.James and Catherine md. on July 11, 1830. The 1840 census of Big River lists James McCoolock [sic]as follows: 100001---22001.
The 1850 census of District 42, Jefferson Co., MO lists James McCollock age 40, farmer, $1800, born MO.His family consisted of new wife, Amanda M.F.age 25 born in KY (James md. Amanda Alvoid [sic]May 17, 1849 in Jefferson County); and children of first wife: Sarah E. age 19, *Minerva C. age 12, Margaret H. age 10.Also listed in William P. Alvord,age 4.I believe William Alvord was the son of Amanda Alvord, by a previous marriage.
If anyone knows more about this James McCulloch, please let me know.James and Catherine may have had a son named James R. who md. Mary Lee in 1854. Need to confirm. Thanks!
