DAVID U. McCULLOUGH, one of the most enterprising and prosperous farmers of Island Creek township, is a native of Jefferson county, born at East Springfield, December 24, 1843, the son of Alexander and Bethanna McCullough. He was well educated, completing his studies at the Harlem Springs college. He then taught for one year but at the outbreak of the civil war he enlisted in Company E, Fifty-second Ohio regiment and served until the close of the war. While taking part in the charge upon the enemy at Kenesaw mountain, he was struck in the left breast by a ball, which passed entirely through his body. He then returned home and has since then given his entire attention to farming and stock-raising and other enterprises in which he was interested. He has for two years filled the office of township clerk. He has taken much interest in the breeding of fine horses, and has imported two during the past two years. He is also a breeder of fine short-horn Durham cattle, and is a member of the Eastern Ohio Valley Breeders' association, which he aided in organizing. He is also a director of the First National Exchange bank, of Steubenville. In politics, he is an active republican, and his church membership is with the United Presbyterian church.
