Of course, there are many more people to record but this gives you a general idea of the descendants of Richard Culbert & Ann Jane Harlton. DNA testing proves that Richard is related to my ancestor, John Culbert. Richard and John were most likely brothers as they purchased land next to each other in Biddulph Township in 1840. Later, Richard and his family later moved to Lambton County, Ontario where many of his descendants live. 

If you're a descendant of any of these people, please email me at this address:
