    • Their wedding probably occurred after John enlisted in the military for the Civil War, but before he left home for his service. [8]
    • Mr. and Mrs. John S. Culbert, of 317 East Tenth Street, celebrated the twenty-fifth anniversary of their wedding last evening at their residence. The list of guests numbered upwards of one hundred and the occasion proved a very enjoyable one throughout. After the friends had gathered various amusements were indulged in, the chief one being singing. Songs were sung by the Aeolian Glee Club, while other members of the company aided in entertaining the guests. About 11 o'clock the company were invited to the dining room, where a fine collation was prepared. The table was very tastily arranged, a prominent piece being a large cake in the center. This contained the names of Mr. and Mrs. Culbert, with '1861-1886' coupled. The guests remained until after midnight and then departed for their homes. Many exquisite fits in silver were presented to the bride and groom of twenty-five summers, among them a pickle caster, cake dish, butter dishes, dinner castor, fruit dishes, knives, forks and other table-ware. Among the guests from points outside the city were Thomas Culbert and wife, Samuel Culbert and mother, and Mrs. Isaac Weaver, of Wilmington; Mrs. Emma Firor, of Michigan; Mrs. John Dunlap and Miss Jennie Dunlap, of Philadelphia.

    Moses Culbert Family Bible - Marriages and Births
    This bible was last in the possession of Anne Culbert Bourne Schulz, and was lost after her death. What remains are photocopies of two pages showing marriages, births, deaths, and memorandums. According to Anne, the bible was given by Moses to his daughter Hannah in 1839. The original entries in the bible are likely to be Hannah's. The significance of the margin note is not known.
