Notes for ROBERT CULBERTSON:
Applied for Revolutionary War Pension 18 October 1832, #S21722
Robert volunteered in 1780 under Capt. John Graves, General John Butler
Caswell County North Carolina, Marched to Camden S.C., was there at
defeat and returned home without discharge, after serving three months.
He volunteered again in the same year under Capt. John McMullin and
James Williams and marched to the Cowpens, S.C. and there joined Col.
William Campbell and Col. Shelby and marched to Kings Mountain, and
the engagement at that place. Was discharged at Moravian Town (now
Winston-Salem) N.C. by Col. William Cleveland, after serving 2 months.
He again volunteered in the year 1781 under Col. Campbell and marched
through Caswell and Gulliford Counties, N.C., and was engaged in the
skirmish at Whitesill's Mill on Reedy Creek; served two months; volunteered
again in the same year under Col. Moore and General Butler and marched
Wilmington, N.C. and was engaged in two skirmishes and returned home
after an expedition of about two months.
Another source gives that he was listed in Capt. John Cochran's Company,
Saluda Regiment, Upper Battalion.
National DAR numbers are, 286383, 34971, 40658, 402720, 127265, 355561,
522860, 684892, the last two I have copies of.
In Hillsbourgh District of North Carolina, Caswell county Gloucester
District are listed in the 1790 census James, Joseph and William Culberson
and Major, John and William Pleasant.
We learn by tradition that Robert and his two brothers came from Europe
Virginia before the Revolutionary War. Robert was a soldier in the
Revolution, being with George Washington. He was wounded in the side,
having struck his haversack and going through it and it's contents
consisted of two pancakes. The haversack in all probability saved his
as the ball only lodged in his side.
After the war, he came to Laurens County, South Carolina and settled
Reedy River below Hoods Creek which was known by some people as Reedy
He afterwards moved about two miles up Hood's Creek and lived at a
which he bought. This place afterwards came into the possession of
Robert did not come from Europe with his two brothers to Virginia but
is what is written by SOME biographer.
After Dolly's death he lived with his son John and at other times with
son Alexander (Elic) around Reedy River in Laurens Co. as stated.
He accumulated very little wealth, however, he owned some land and in
later days he drew a pension for Revolutionary War service. He died
son John's and was buried in the Elledge Graveyard about 1/4 mile from
River. Four rocks, more than a foot high marks his resting place.
must be prior to placing of DAR marker).
He was a moral man but it is doubted whether he was a religious man
The impression is that he was 88-90 when he died. He was very active.
story goes is that he could jump up "kick the ceiling above his head
light on his feet". He was a very strong person. He was social and
was a farmer and probably did some work as a carpenter.
A Dedication of DAR Marker to Robert was made October 27, 1968 at the
Elledge Family Cemetery on Reedy River in Laurens County South Carolina.
In reference to the land, Robert deeded to John and Alexander, it is
Book L page 95 in 1823. He reserved 10 acres and his house, until his
and then it was to go to Alexander.
Dollie died before the 1830 census, as Robert was then living with John
Some sources for this data: Laurens Co. Sketchbook by Julian S. Bolick
published ca 1973 page 6, 280-283.

reported to have come to Laurens County in 1785 so this document places
very near to that time.
Deed Book B page 316 5 March 1788 Robert is witness to a deed and this
states that land borders him. The land mentioned is 280 acres on Little
River of Saluday near courthouse of Laurens granted 21 January 1785.
Bordered also by John Rogers, Nathan Barksdale and Nehemiah Franks
Abraham Neighbors. You would assume he owned this land, if so it must
been bought before 1785 and recorded in Charleston, but other sources
mention he did not own land he lived on for many years, but perhaps
Book B page 463 9 February 1789 he buys 100 acres for 60 pounds on Little
River, an original grant to James Beard in 1774. A James Culbertson
witness and it must be his son? I think it was permisable to be a witness
before age 21. Dr. Lewis Culbertson also states Rober's brother James
there so it must be him.
Book E page 379 5 November 1792 he sells the 100 acres on Little River
100 pounds sterling.
Book J page 126 10 October 1808 he buys more land from William Cole,
acres for $300. parts of a grant to Patrick Cunningham and part of
Deed Book K page 17 mentions that Robert has some land which borders
Reedy River. (This is where he supposedly had land which he left to
Alexander, retaining 10 acres and house where he lived for himself
went to Alexander on Robert's death, but evidently gave to him sometime
after Dollie died as he is living with John in 1830.)
>From Will Book D-1 1814 Robert and James are mentioned as buyers at
sale. (this may be son James or brother James.)
In fact there were many such sales which Robert attended, so he must
liked this sort of thing. Some of present day descendants do too, including
myself, my mother and uncle.
The below information is from "The Culbertson and Culberson Family"
Lewis Culbertson of Zanesville, OH published 1923.
3.a.) ROBERT CULBERTSON son of Andrew of Va. and grandson of Irish Andrew
of Shippensburg, Pa., says in his application for pension. "Was born
Lancaster Co., Pa. In early life removed to Caswell Co., N. Car. Enlisted
Capt. John Grove's Co. of N. Car. Was in the battle of Camden; the
Gen. Gates. Then re-enlisted in Col. Williams' Regt. Was in battle
Cowpens and Kings Mt. Then reenlisted in Col. Campbell's Regt. Was
skirmish at Wetzels Mills and two skirmishes near Wilmington. Claim
pension made 1832. Annual allowance $40. Age 83 years. Private in N.
militia. He removed to Laurens Dist., S. Car. in 1785." Received a
land on the Reedy River in 1785. (S. Car.). Can find no Col. Campbell
N. Car. troops. There was Col. Campbell of Va. line. The
Census 1790, S.
Car. Dist. 96, Laurens Co., gives him 4 sons under 16 years, wife and
daughters. This tallies with the family records. Had 5
sons but one remained in Va. (Wm. P.) with his mother (first wife).
Robert has a most interesting family history. "He entered
the army at
beginning of the Revolution and served until the close. His wife heard
nothing of him during this time and supposed he was dead, remarried.
close of the war he returned home--and his wife left her second
would not live with either one. Her first husband then took his oldest
and left his second son with his wife. The father and son then went
Car. where he remarried. He was wounded at the Battle of Kings Mountain,
Car., for which he was pensioned."
If Robert left his first wife in Virginia, then it must
have been 1776
1777 as he served with the N. Car. troops. Putting the family version
together with facts from court records he must either have left her
1776-7; or must have married his second wife about 1780-82 (note number
children he had on Census 1790). Marriage bonds had to be filed in
N. Car. at this date and there is no bond of Robert Culbertson and
Pleasant. Census 1790 of N. Car. shows three Pleasants living in Gloucester
Dist. of Caswell Co. There are no Pleasants living in S. Car. 1790
did not have divorce records of Caswell Co., N. Car., nor Va., examined
Robert and Elizabeth Culbertson. On Census of 1790 Robert is given
Laurens Co., S. Car., self and wife, 4 males under 16 years, and three
females. Family history says he only had two sons by first wife. I
given children from family history. I am inclined to believe one or
daughters were by the first wife. There were no marriage (court) records
kept in S. Car. until 1914. John Grove was on Census
1790 in Rowan Co.
Car. J. M. Barrie's Army and Navy of U.S. Vol. VII, p. 26, says "There
two Col. Williams from N. Car., Col. James Williams commanded a regiment
Rangers and Partisan Corps; and Col. John Williams the 9th N. Car.
Battle of Camden the attack was led by Col. Williams' Volunteers."
The only two James Williams on 1790 Census (N. Car.) in
Culbertsons were located were in Rowan Co. (none in Caswell). Robert
in his pension papers he "was in N. Car. Militia", so this shows he
have been in James Williams Regt. Vol. II, p. 422, Abstracts of Augusta
Va., by L. D. Chalkley, says, "Delinquents Augusta Co., Va. Levy 1779,
Robert Culbertson gone from county." This is Robert of Laurens Co.,
(3.a) ROBERT CULBERTSON mar. first, Miss Elizabeth Porter, before the
Revolution in Va. (Augusta Co.?). Left Va., 1776.
1.b. James, b. before Revolution. Went to S. Car.
2.b. Wm. Porter, b. before Revolution. Remained in Va.
(3.a.) ROBERT CULBERTSON after the close of the Revolution went to
Laurens Co., S. Car., where he had taken up a large tract of land on
Reedy River. Mar. Miss Dolly Pleasant of Glouster Dist. Caswell Co.,
The information about Robert and Elizabeth and their children does not
appear correct and local Cooper and Culbertson researcher Joseph E.
(Laurens, SC) who shared much Culbertson research with me did not believe
either. Robert did serve several times and almost from beginning
only short terms, not continually.

South Carolina, and died 12 September 1884 in Tate County, Mississippi?.
She married HENRY (W.L.S.) COOPER 27 February 1841 in Laurens County,
Notes for HENRY (W.L.S.) COOPER:
Finding Henry's parents has not been successful as yet. The lady he
lived in Laurens County, SC but it seems he did not live there previously.
If the naming of children as used in those times prevailed, his mother
Mary and Father was James. There was such a couple in Union County
were old enough to have been the parents???
About 1845, sometime between the births of James D 1844 and John Wilson
the family moved with his in laws to Blount (pronounced Blunt) County,
Alabama. Coopers did not buy land there (not found in records) but
Culbertson's did. Their land was later in Etowah Co. when it was formed
Soon after this time the Coopers left Alabama and later were found in
County MS in 1880 census and by the births of children of sons, they
been in TN for a time, but in MS before 1875.
Dollie died in 1884 by Bible Records. I have assumed they lived in Tate
County till this event and then moved to Comanche Co. Texas. They were
Tate Co. in 1881 when youngest daughter married. Oldest daughter married
1886 late. If James and Ellen did not leave Tate Co. till then, then
was born in Mississippi.
Henry, John Wilson, Pleasant Edward and Martha Ellen are all found in
records in Comanche County. Soloman is in Tate Co. on 1880 census and
D. is not yet located after the 1860 census in Alabama, but his death
is recorded in Bible, just don't know where, same with P.E.
Henry, John Wilson and wife are buried in Comanche Co. as is Martha
1st husband... my G-Grandfather. Martha Ellen later moved to Mitchell
after death of 2nd husband and is buried there.
The 1900 Comanche County census states that Henry's middle inital is
is possibly a W. I have misread this before. He is 83, a helpless
living in the home of his daughter Mary and husband Seborn Hitchcock.
also gives that he was born in SC, his father in NC and mother in Virginia.
Also in this household is Ples (Pleasant Edward) E. who is 42 and single.

Notes for MARTHA ELLEN COOPER:
I have a biased view I suppose of Martha Ellen, as it came from my mother
only with her interpretation of her parents views, but here goes...
She seemed to be a strict, very serious, sharp tongued person. Not
Grandma like their other one. Mamo, Rutha Mae did not like her and
called her Mrs. Guthrie and didn't like her husband at all.
Charlie didn't have much affection for his mother either, I'm told,
was all about, I don't know.
She must have made crops and finished paying for the farm and her and
Guthrie evidently lived there until he died and then she moved to Mitchell
County, Texas. (This may not be true as Charlie, James Harlie and Bonnie
were listed on Brown county Texas census in 1900)
The deed says notes were paid in full in November 1894.
In my Mother's cousinís handwriting, found in 1997, source not known
Martha Ellen Cooper was born in Alabama, May 25, 1860. She was married
James S. Wiggins in 1881. To this union was born five children, Charles
Luther, J. Harlie, and Bonnie Mae. These 3 survive her, the other two
J.S. Wiggins died 24 January 1892.
She married A.B. Guthrie in 1895. He died 9 Oct.1937. One child was
this union, Pinkney W.
She came to Texas in 1880 to DeLeon, Comanche Co. Texas.
She came to Mitchell County in 1937 to make her home with her children.
Her parents were Henry W.L.S. Cooper born 12 January died Sept. 5,
Dolly M. Culbertson born 6 Dec. 1842 died 12 Sept, 1883 and married
*There are several discrepancies in above information from what I had
previously from the Bible Record of Dolly Martha or Martha Ellen (sent
by Evelyn Wiggins Brown) and the tombstone of Henry Cooper and the
census showing Henry H. Cooper. She also did not come to Texas in 1880
she was married in Jan. 1881 in Tate Co. Mississippi. Her older sister
not marry until in fall of 1886. I wonder if Ellen and James came to
before her parents did? If they didn't, then Charlie was probably born

Next to John P. Culbertson in the 1860 census is a John Allison with
daughter Julianne the same age and birthplace as the J.A.M. Allison
married William A. and I believe them to be the same person.

3 and shows that he does have some land. His fathers land is in Township
