I realize that this will be of no help whatsoever to you, but your note caught my eye in the forum. I have stalled (mostly from lack of due diligence)in my recent searches of the McCully family. I grew up in Pittsburgh, and frequently visited Point State Park, which was the site of Fort Pitt. One of the only surviving structures at the site was the "block house", which served (at the time of my visits) as an information center and gift shop. Around the "block house" was a wrought iron fence with plaques honoring prominent soldiers of the wars (revolutionary, French and Indian). Among the plaques was one for a George McCully, although I don't remember the rank. My faintest recollection was Major. I was a mere lad (when I visited, not during the wars) with my family, and I remember my mother telling me that we were related to good old George, but I was too young to be worthy of a detailed explanation. She's gone now, and so, too, my most likely starting point for the search. My uncle, who was of the McCully lineage, knows little of his family beyond 2 generations. I now live in the Philadelphia area, and don't make it back very often to search records in the Pittsburgh area. I do mean to do it someday, but that's the battle cry of many a frustrated genealogist. I can let you know what I know of my family (back only to the late 1800's), but that, sorrowfully, does you little good. I only have the word of my mother to my formerly adolescent ears to trust that a relation actually existed.
