(Additional Note from Mary Ellen Brue)
Henry Miller Culbertson is my great grandfather. I already had most of the
information but appreciate having another source to refer to.
There is one correction. His wife was Caroline Coffin, daughter of Alexander Coffin
Interestingly, their nephew, was a depot agent in Clark County at one time.
Another grandson, Elliot Walters was married to Mildred Collins.
Thank you for correcting your data.
I have more about them if you are interested.
