"..the McCulloughs left Argylshire, Scotland about 1660. They moved to Ireland near Castleblaney in the County of Monaghan close to the border of County Armagh. They were a farming family at the time they emigrated to Canada in 1816. The voyage took 11 weeks. Patrick 1765-1845 and his wife Mary Hamilton brought 6 sons and 2 daughters with them to Canada and settled in Eramosa Twp. Patrick brought enough money to buy 200 acres as well as send his oldest son Robert to study at Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland. Robert returned later to practice medicine at Georgetown. Patrick organized and taught in the first school in Eramosa Twp. His wife has been described as a talented and handsome woman."
Patrick buys land on 17 October 1827 [lot 15 W 1/2 concession 3 of Eramosa Township] from Timothy Loree: 100 acres for the sum of 37 pounds and 10 shilling.
Buried in McCormick Pioneer Cemetery, Eramosa Township, Wellington County, Ontario, Canada
Note: The McCormick Pioneer Cemetery is located on land donated by Robert McCormick at west half lot 17, concession 2, Eramosa Township, Wellington County, Ontario. Robert donated the land about 1828 and became the first person buried there not long after.
