This page is dedicated to sorting out the ancestry of Benjamin Moore and Catherine McCullough. The McCullough and Moore families appear to be connected across three states, but sorting out who is who is a nightmare perplexing a great many researchers.
Five McCullough men appear in Chickasaw County, Mississippi in the 1840s: Irvin, Martin, Foster, Perryman, and Daniel. At least some, but probably not all of these fellows are brothers. At least four can be traced back to Pike County, Mississippi, and at least two went to Troup County Georgia. Another went to Tallapoosa County, Alabama as well as at least one of the men who went to Troup County, Georgia and another was in Alabama about the same time as well, presumably Tallapoosa County. The family of John F. Moore appears to be connected closely with the McCulloughs, appearing together in Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi. This is an attempt try to put all the information in one place where a maximum number of researchers can have all the information in front of them in some sort of coherent(or at least semi-coherent) whole.

I'll get the details, but here's a summary:
A Daniel McCullough(who is reported to be the son of a James McCullough from Tennessee and is not the same as the Daniel McCullough who appears in Chickasaw County, MS) is on the 1840 census with what appears to be another couple living with him. If it's the recently married Perryman and Frances, they were enumerated a second time in Alabama, Martin McCullough is also believed to have been in Georgia at this time, having left Pike County, MS in 1839 in the company of a Henry Rollins. There is also a John F. Moore who is a good match for the John F. Moore found in Chickasaw County, MS in 1850.
