Thomas McCullough's land (Beverley Manor NE, 80 acres acquired from John, James and William Gillespie (sons of James Gillespie) in 1775) as shown on the map meticulously drawn by J.R. Hildebrand, cartographer. This map is copyrighted©, used by permission of John Hildebrand, son of J.R. Hildebrand, April, 2009.
