About the Book

If your family originated from the Chicora area in Butler County, Pennsylvania, then chances are you are related to a descendant of Captain John McCollough and Anna Elizabeth Spangler, pioneers of the region. For the last decade, Curtis McCollough and his son,Mark, researched the history of this prominent Butler County family and prepared this beautifully illustrated book to share with family members across the county. This book weaves our family history with that of the western Pennsylvania frontier. Did our family come from Scotland or Ireland? Do you know the story of the Indian massacre or murder that orphaned John McCollough? Could we be related to an infamous Indian trader on the western Pennsylvania frontier? Was John a pottery apprentice in the old Herrold community near Greensburg? Did you know our ancestors were prominent in the “Whiskey Rebellion” and were pardoned by George Washington? Where was John McCollough’s pioneer homestead and whiskey still? Where was the “McCollough School?” Can you find your name in the family tree? Did you know you are related to Amelia Earhart? What movie actor is a descendant of John McCollough?

This 518-page book contains a wealth of
information on your family history and is
illustrated with 26 color photographs, 135 black and white sketches, 27 maps, 16 old McCollough documents, and over 41 photographs of our McCollough ancestors. Also included are:
a 75-page, 3,000-name family tree and history for Captain John’s 10 children;
Captain John’s 23-page journal dating back to 1796;
maps of the original McCollough farms;
the origins of the McColloughs in Scotland and Ireland;
the earliest recorded family histories;
history of the McCollough reunions;
Captain John’s pottery and military service in the Indian Wars and War of 1812;
