The subject of this notice is a Virginian, having been born in Page County, Virginia, in 1837. He made his ap­pearance on the Pacific Coast in 1853, coming by the famil­iar Isthmus route. Directing his steps toward the South­ern mines, he began digging at Yankee Hill, remaining there for the almost unprecedented time of sixteen years! His next and final location was Confidence. Mr. Cullers en­joys the esteem of his associates in a remarkable degree holding as he does the office of Worthy Chief of the large and flourishing Lodge of Good Templars at the above place. His wife, Miss A. M. Eastwood, to whom he was married in Sonora, together with the following named children, form his family: Robert F , William C., Henry M. , and Laura B.
