|Henry Culbert, 1913|
Henry Culbert was the first-born son of John Culbert and Mary Ward. Born 17 March 1837 in Ireland, Henry was only three years old when he made the journey to Canada with his family, settling in Biddulph Township, Middlesex County near Lucan, Ontario on Lot 19, Concession 2 (The Coursey Line.)
