From:John McCulloch at Fort Pitt

Early Augusta County Virginia court records from Fort Pitt (present day Pittsburgh, PA) from 1774 and 1775 list a justice John McCullough at most court sessions. This early Augusta County (VA) court was established by John Connolly, an agent of Lord Dunmore, the governor of Virginia, as part of a strategy to secure the territory in western Pennsylvania for the state of Virginia....John McCullough served in the court along with other noted early settlers George Croghan, Edward Ward, Thomas Smallman, John Gibson, Dorsey Pentecost, John Campbell, John Canon, David Shepherd and William Crawford. In 1775 at a "meeting of the inhabitants of that part of Augusta County that lies on the west side of the Laurel Hill, at Pittsburgh, the 16th of May, 1775" this same John McCullough joined many of the above named men in a proclamation opposing British tyranny. These Articles of Association lead to the formation of militia to aid the Continental Congress in fighting the Revolution.... On September 17, 1776 John McColloch was named a Gentleman Justice with Edward Ward, Dorsey Pentecost, John Canon and David Shepherd for the newly formed VA county of Yohogania. In 1777 John McColloch was sworn as High Sherriff of Ohio Co., VA at Black's cabin...Shortly thereafter he died of yellow fever at Fort Pitt while returning to Moorefield after a visit to Short Creek. ...John McCulloch(1726-1777)....father of the famed Majors Samuel and John McColloch of Fort Henry, Short Creek and Wheeling.

Some sources say he died of cholera
