Subject: [CULP] Thomas Culp/Ky/MO/AR/ Anyone???
Date: Thu, 15 Jun 2000 14:23:43 -0500
This is my direct line, I descend from Thomas Culp and Lavina Jeffery Sams
Culp's son, Josiah C. Culp and his wife, Mary.
I would like to determine the maiden name of Josiah's wife, and what
happened to their son, Charles. My great great grandmother was their
daughter, Sarah Lavina Culp Fountain.
I am also trying to find a record to verify the maiden name of James Culp's
wife, Susan. Would like to locate any of his descendants.
Seeking verification of maiden name of Ambrose Culp's wife, Sarah, thought
to be Goodwin as there is a Mary Ann Goodwin, in their household on an 1870
Izard Co. Ar. Census, along with Ambrose's brother, Abraham, who never
married, the 15 year old Goodwin, could possibly have been a sister to
Ambrose's wife Sarah.
Any descendants of Ambrose? He filed for Civil War Pension in 1901-1902, in
Franklin Co. Ar., town of Etna. He had son Stephen and daughter, Mary Ann,
one daughter died young, named Emma.
Also need verification on the wife of Daniel Culp, son of Thomas and Lavina
His wife from all census traces, locations and information from a living
Wolf descendant, confirms that "Nancy Wolf", daughter of Michael Wolf and
Elizabeth Adams Wolf, married a man named Culp, but she didn't know his
first name, and so far have found no one else that remembers the first name
of Nancy's Culp husband, whom all evidence points to him being, Daniel Culp,
son of Thomas Culp and Lavina Jeffery Culp.
Nancy Wolf Culp married a man named Tom Morton after the death of her Culp
husband(1859-60) and probably had other children, would like to locate some
of the Morton descendants.
Nancy and her Culp husband had a daughter(Elizabeth), who married a Blount,
who had a daughter(Orena) who married a Herd, who had a daughter(Hattie)
that married, Judge Gordon Leroy Cooper and Hattie and Judge Leroy Cooper's
son is the Astronaut, Gordon Cooper, from Shawnee, Oklahoma.(This fact has
been verified by a living Wolf descendant)
The chart below is what I have on Thomas Culp's descendants, but still have
a lot of blanks to fill in.
Any corrections or additions very welcome.
Anyone with any connections, I would appreciate hearing from you.
