Date: 1 Nov 1997 From: Dawn L. Roe Searching: CULVER, SWEET
I'm researching the lineage of Solomon CULVER (1786 - ?) and Rebecca SWEET (1805 - ?). Solomon was born in Pennsylvania. The Federal Census of 1790 lists only three Culver families, two in Cumberland County, and one in Franklin County. There is also a Solomon Culver listed in the 1800 Federal Census for Luzerne County, PA. Rebecca was born is Vermont. Solomon and Rebecca had seven children, including 2 sets of twins! Their children were Eveline & Angeline (twins), Elias, Henry & Hetable (twins), Martha, and Julia Etta. Solomon and family lived in Sterling, NY around 1845. Family legend states that Solomon was a Methodist Minister at Sterling, Cayuga County, NY. After 1850 Solomon is no longer listed with his family in the census records. However, Rebecca remained in Sterling. Have been unable to locate burial grounds for either Solomon or Rebecca.
