Sheridan Drowatzky asked whether I am related to the Fauquier County, Virginia, CULVERHOUSEs. At this point, the answer is "maybe."
My husband's ancestor was Nancy A. Culveyhouse (1845-1922), who married Caleb N. BENTLEY in Union County, Tennessee, on 3 April 1866.
Nancy appears to be the daughter of Lewis Culverhouse. The 1860 census of Union County, Tennessee, lists Lewis Culverhouse (54) as a farmer in the 3rd District. He has $200 in real property. He is illiterate. Francis [sic] Culverhouse (53) is a House Keeper. Also in the household are Martha J. Culverhouse (32, Domestic), Andrew Culverhouse (19, Farmhand), Nancy A. Culverhouse (16, Domestic), and James L. Culverhouse (9). Frances was born in Virginia; the others all were born in Tennessee. Their post office address is Haynes (p. 441A, household 314, my transcription).
Lewis is SAID to be a son of a William Culverhouse, but I do not know whether that was the William of Fauquier County, Virginia, who married Elizabeth Rector on 4 December 1804. Does anyone know whether William moved to Tennessee?
William of Fauquier County is believed to be a brother of Sheridan's ancestor Cloe Culverhouse, who married George Tolle.
I am pretty sure of the connection between Nancy and Lewis (and his wife Frances SMITH), but I do not have proof of Lewis's descent. I would be glad to hear from anyone with evidence or suggestions for research.
Happy hunting, Laura
