I have obtained possession of an old family bible for Thomas MCCULLOUGH who was born in 1882, and married Inez BURK in 1903 in Wabash, IN. I would love to share this information with the descendants of this family. If you are a descendant, or know of this family, please contact me. Thanks! Jack Story - jstory@comteck.com

SUCCESS! July 28, 1998

My goal was to find the descendants of Thomas McCullough and return the bible to the McCullough family. I am happy to report that I was able to locate the youngest daughter of Thomas McCullough, Wilma (McCullough ) Rust, who lives in Marion, and gave the bible to her today.

The story of this bible is amazing, but I'll try to be brief:

This 100 year old bible was found in a trash dumpster 10 years ago! The person who found it, pulled it from the trash and kept it in their home, not knowing what to do with it. Just this past week, they decided to give it to a friend of mine who knew of my interest in history, especially genealogy. I received several responses from my posting, but no direct descendants, however, by using People Search, I located Wilma Rust, Thomas McCullough's youngest daughter.
When I contacted Wilma and told her about the bible, she was thrilled and amazed. She told me that she had given the bible to her nephew several years ago and thought that he was old enough to understand its importance. But when cleaning house one day, he threw the bible away. She thought that this priceless family bible was lost forever.
What a thrill it was to hand the bible back to her and to see her shed tears of joy as she spoke of the memories of her parents and family. Wilma said that getting such an important part of her family's history returned to her after 10 years, was by the providence of God.
I would have to agree.
