Paulina "Pliney" McCullough of Port Greville

Jim:

In trying to determine the correct birth date for Paulina Pliney McCullough,
I located this data below. I feel she's much older than age 26 in 1901 but
not as old as age 91, born 2 May 1860 her 1952 death record.

I place her birth somewhere between siblings, Abigail (26 Jan 1862) and
Rachel Mary (6 Sep 1866); about 1864.

As you know, son, Frederick F. McCully was illegitimate and raised by his
maternal grandparents. There never was a first marriage as per Pliney's
obit. Somewhere, the surname changed from McCullough to McCully.

Note: "Connie" is as published-should be Pliney; believe she was only
married once to Charles Edward Dunphy; surviving Dunphy children are Thomas
Edward and Alice May; "Swicker" is a misprint for Zwicker
