Hi,

I too am called Kath McCulloch, in fact my name is Kathleen McCulloch, my dad was John, my granddad William and we are decedents of the McCulloch family of Black Hill Glenluce. I remember as a child visiting the farm house and meeting Mrs Dodds the house keeper and the current lodger which was a dwarf, I believe he was some relative to the Earl. When I met him he was in his eighties and wearing a kilt.

I remember that the last McCulloch to reside at the farmhouse was Joch (John McCulloch) who never married. The housekeeper Mrs Dodds kept on at the farm after his death.

As regards your question as to whether the William McCulloch you mentioned went to Ireland, I am unsure, as I have never tracked the family that far back.

I wonder if we both descend from the same McCulloch's. Hope I am not too late with this posting, as I have just come across it.

I wonder if we descend from the same family.

Look forward to hearing from you.
