Ellinwood (KS) Leader, Dec. 2, 1915, pg. 1 "BENJAMIN MCCULLOUGH. Died at the home of his son, William, south of Ellinwood, Monday, November 29, 1915, at the ripe old age of eighty years, three months and thirteen days, Benjamin McCullough. Few of us will live as long or as well, and fewer yet, will the Angel of Death greet with such a loving touch. But Uncle Ben, as we all so familiarly called him, is gone, and thus another name is stricken from the ever lessening roll of our old pioneers, and sorrowing ones are left to attest how sadly they will miss him. It must be so. These tender human ties cannot be severed without a pang. Yet in such a death there is no cause for grief. His life work was done, and done well. He had passed his golden days and wearied with life's duties and cares, weary of suffering and waiting, he lay down to rest. The writer has known the deceased for about twenty-five years and have no language at our command by which to fittingly portray the sincerity of this man's character, and in the experience of lifetime we safely say have never met one who seemed to more nearly walk hand in hand with his Creator. In short, he was not only a Christian, but he was an honored gentleman, in the highest sense the term implies. He was born in Auglaize county, Ohio, where he grew to manhood. At the outbreak of the Civil War he enlisted in an Ohio regiment and served his country valiantly until the close of that memorable struggle. He was married to Nancy Jackson in Ohio in 1857. They came to Kansas in 1887 and homesteaded the place in which he resided until his death. Six children were born to the union, three surviving their father, two sons, William and Perry, living in this vicinity, and Mrs. Lizzie Weber, who resides in Meade county, Kansas, three having previously gone to the Great Beyond. The funeral services were held at the German Methodist church in this city Wednesday, December 1, conducted by Re. Henry Bruns, under the auspices of the I. O. O. F. of which organization he had ling [long] been a faithful member and constant member, and the remains were laid to rest in Ellinwood cemetery. The services at the grave were conducted by the lodge and the very impressive ritual work was given as is the custom on similar occasions. Members of the order here from Great Bend to attend the funeral were H. J. Smith, J. M. Lalicker, T. W. Sample, Edward Tyler, B. J. Kelley, B. A. Gardner, Leo Keller, E. R. Trout and Jerry Limbocker. – Ellinwood Leader"
