Arthur McCullough

Becky Dirks Haugsted provided the images and Janet A. Brandt transcribed the text.

Private Arthur McCullough of Anamosa was the first Jones County boy to give his life in action in the World War. He died on May 27, 1918, from wounds received while serving with the 168th (Iowa) Infantry of the Rainbow division. He was a member of the Machine Gun Company. He enlisted on April 9, 1917, and was trained at Ft. Des Moines. His Regiment landed in England Dec. 9, 1917. Arthur McCullough was born in Fairview, Jones County, Iowa, Feb 22, 1899. His parents were Joseph McCullough and Libbie Leaper McCullough. His mother passed away in January, 1903, and he made his home from that time with his grandmother, Mrs. John A. Leaper, a soldier's widow in Anamosa. Three brothers, Jack, Farl and Homer also served in the World War, making a record for service for one family reflecting credit on the loyal lineage of the old civil war veteran. Arthur was a boy loved by all and in whom we feel a just pride for his willing sacrifice of his young life for his country and for humanity.
