William McCullough, a man of sturdy frame and strong upright character, who lived almost 92 years, quietly sat in his chair at the residences of his son, Edward M. McCullough, in Beaver Falls, Pa., last Thursday evening, December 18, 1919, and closed up the book of his life, and was not, for God took his spirit back to his care until the time of the restoration of all things. He had rheumatism, especially in one foot which had been crippled in the war of 1861 - 65, and finally that became the seat of the disease which terminated his life and from which he suffered very much in the last days and weeks of his life. But on the evening named his supper had been carried to him and placed before him as he sat in his chair. Shortly thereafter his son noticed him sitting with a bowed head and his right hand hanging down at his right side, and spoke to him only to find only the house in which he had lived, that father had gone away, leaving o long.
William McCullough was born in Jefferson county, PA., March 1, 1828, a son of former Sherrif McCullough, of that county, and grew to manhood there. He learned and followed the carpenter's trade, and in his prime was considered a man of great skill and splendid ability in his chosen occupation. On December 28, 1842, he was united in marriage with Eliza Jane Frampton, a daughter of William Frampton, and shortly thereafter moved to and established his home in Mechanicsvillle, where he made his home until a couple of years ago after his wife died 21 years ago last Feb. 9. Following that he resided with his children, spending most of his summers with his daughter, Mrs. J. W. Russell, of Clarion, and his winters with his son where he died.
Mr. McCullough is survived by seven children, namely: Spurgeon, of Cleveland, O.; Mrs. Denton Tucker, Graham, Wash.; W. S., Pittsburgh; J. D., Beaver falls; Mr. N. Heackman, New Kensington; Ed. M., Beaver Falls and Mrs J.W. Russell, of Clarion.
There also survive more than 40 grandchildren, 40 great grandchildren and 6 great great grandchildren. He also leaves one brother, John McCulough, Brooksville; Mrs. E. O. Orcutt, and Mrs. David Orcutt, Corsica, and Mrs. David Sowers, in the west.

COMPANY C, SECOND REGIMENT, U.S. SHARPSHOOTERS.
During the month of August, 1861, Captain S.M. Dewey, of Harrisburg, Pa., visited Jefferson county for the purpose of recruiting men for a company in "Berdans Sharpshooters." None but expert marksmen were received, each individual being required to "make ten consecutive shots at a distance of two hundred yards, within five inches of the center of the target, or fifty inches measured from the center of the target to the center of ball-holes. Each man to certify to his target before a justice of the peace."
Ira J. Northrup was left in charge of recruiting for this company, and soon recruited a good squad of men who were at once sent to the headquarters of the regiment at Harrisburg, and were mustered into the service October 5, 1861. This company did gallant service for the Union. They were all expert marksmen, and were armed with the most approved breech-loading rifles. The history of "Berdans Sharpshooters" is that of the Army of Potomac. In the thick of every battle they were sure to do effective work as their shots always told on the foe.
The following men represented Jefferson county in Company C.U.S.S.:
Sergeants, Ira J. Northrup, promoted to captain; Frank Rumbarger, John W. Pearsall; corporals, John McMurray, Isaac Lyle; privates, George Boals, George W. Dunkle, John S. Geer, W.E. Jacox, Leroy C.
