JOHN L. McCULLOUGH, On the front of the photo is penciled the year 1880. The back has hand-written "John L. McCullough probably before 1885." The back also contains the studio stamp "Gayford, Rock Island, ILL."

Found at the same antique sale, same box of photos:
MARGUERITE McCULLOUGH, age 6 months.  But no indication of when the photo was taken. The studio stamp says "Burgoyne's Photograph Gallery, Manhattan Kans. Established 1859."

1860 US Census records (Rock Island, ILL) indicate 5-yr-old John L. McCullough (born 1855) living with Pennsylvania-born parents J.C. McCullough (48) and Jane S (49). Also in the household are siblings Rachel A (18, schoolteacher), Abram A (16), Harriet J (14) and Hannah P (12). All of the siblings were born in Ohio, except little John who was born in Illinois.

1900 US Census records (June 4 1900, Hyde Park, Chicago, Cook Co. ILL) indicate that John McCullough (b. Aug 1855 in Illinois) lived at 7706 Saginaw in Hyde Park, and worked as a clerk in a lumberyard. His parents were both born in Pennsylvania. At the same residence was wife Adelaide (b. May 1861 in Wisc., her father born in Vermont, mother in NY), daughter Marguerite (age 13, b. March 1887 in Kansas), and son John L. (age 8, b. Oct 1891 in Kansas). Both children were in school.

1910 US Census (Illinois) shows John L. McCullough (age 54) living with wife Adelaide M. (age 48) and children Marguerite (23) and John L. (18).
