ED. CULVER, farmer and stock-raiser; P.O. Athens; was born in St. Lawrence Co., N.Y., in 1835; his parents came to Sangamon Co., Ill., when he was less than 1 year of age; he passed his youth and early manhood on his father's farm, receiving such an education as the schools of that early day afforded; he has been a resident of Sugar Grove Precinct since its organization; he owns, in connection with the heirs of the late John S. Culver, 700 acres of well-improved land, of which he has the management; he is a self-made man, in the fullest sense of the word; a Republican in politics, but quite liberal in his views of men and things.
