William McCullough, son of Samuel McCullough and Isabella Boner, was born on the family farm in Marshall Township during the Civil War. The family moved to the old City of Allegheny (now part of Pittsburgh) probably by 1880. William married Dora Marie Schmidt of Allegheny in 1886, and they built a house on Valley Street, now called Venture Street, on the North Side. Six of their seven children lived to adulthood.

According to his obituary, William was "one of the first men in Pittsburgh to operate an electric street car," while he was employed by the Pittsburgh Railways Company.

William McCullough later joined the police force in the City of Allegheny, serving as a lieutenant in the Sixth District. He retired from the police force in 1926.

He belonged to the United Traction Relief Association andthe Veteran Police Association.

William is buried in the Northland 17 section of Mount Royal Cemetery in the Glenshaw area of Allegheny County.
