Looking for information on the ancenstry of Captain John McCOLLOUGH of Butler Co., PA (b 4/15/1770; d. 9/8/1847). Butler Co. histories state John was born in Westmoreland Co., PA; Holston River, VA; or Scotland. Married Elizabeth SPANGLER (SPENGLER:Ger)(b. 1/28/1779; d. 1/14/1858) on 7/4/1797 at �house of the widow GRIBS (CRIBS, KREBS)� in Westmoreland Co., PA.

John was a private in 1793 in Westmoreland Co, PA Militia under Captain John SLOAN and a Captain in the PA Militia in 1814. John and Elizabeth had 10 children; first son was WILLIAM (b. 1799). �Butler Citizen� 9/12/1912 newspaper article by Newton McCollough states that John�s father was Doctor William McCOLLOUGH (wife unknown) and John was orphaned in an Indian massacre in 1774.
