Hugh,

McGough Road is named for my Great Great Grandfather.

His name was James McGOugh (D.1907) and he was married to Mary E. Walker (D.1918) They owned a farm on McGough Road.

They had 5 children. One of which was my Great Grandfather James Harrison McGough (1873-1962). He was a bootlegger during the depression!. He married Elizabeth Neil ( 1889-1913), & they had 2 children, twin boys Harry (b. 1912) & Donald (1912 - 1992). Donald was my grandfather.

There is a McGough Family cemetary just off of McGough Road. Have you actually been to the area?

Hope this answers your question.
