    • Their wedding probably occurred after John enlisted in the military for the Civil War, but before he left home for his service. [56]
    • 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.

  • Notes 
    • It is presumed that the middle name, Snowden, is attributed to the Presbyterian faith.

      John has not been found in the 1860 U.S. Federal Census. He did not live with his parents. I found two John Culbert listings in an 1859 Philadelphia city directory, one a manufacturer located at 1309 Lombard St., and the other
      a laborer on West Washington. [ref. 1859, McElroy's Philadelphia City and Business Directory, Edward C.
      and John Biddle, p. 149] [56]
    • A Chester Plumber Completely Outgenerals a Dutch Packet Captain.
      For some time past work has been in progress on an old boat at Edgmont avenue pier. The craft was almost entirely rebuilt, while it was converted into a steam packet by the addition of machinery. The owner is a Dutchman and his intention is to ply on the waters of Chesapeake Bay. John CULBERT, the plumber, was employed to do considerable work about the machinery and had almost finished the job, when the captain got up steam and departed on Friday night. When Mr. Culbert went to the wharf on Saturday morning to complete his contract, the Florist, as the boat has been named, was not in sight. No money had been left to foot the bill either, and it dawned on the plumber that he had been victimized by the Dutch owner of the boat. Mr. Culbert as once went to Philadelphia in search of the scamp and learned that the Florist had steamed down the river and gone through the Delaware and Chesapeake Canal. he posted off to Chesapeake City, where he found the packet moored to a wharf, but as it was Sunday he could not procure an attachment. He secured the services of a constable to watch the boat, and when midnight of Sunday had passed Mr. Culbert procured the desired writ, and in company with the constable sat on the wharf waiting for the owner to appear. About 3 o'clock on Monday morning the whilom? owner mounted the steps of the companion way and walked the deck of his vessel. At the same time Mr. Culbert and the constable also walked the same deck and served the attachment, and all Holland and berks county could not produce a more surprised Dutchman. The Chester plumber made arrangements to get his cash, while the owner of the Florist is to-day a sadder and poorer man. [61]

      Acting upon the recommendation of the committee appointed some time ago by City Council to examine the principal buildings of the city in reference to means of escape in case of fire, the Messrs.

      At a meeting of the Chester City Council bids were opened and read:...The bids for [street] lamps were as follows: Gartside & Turner, $16.50 for each lamp, copper stop and fitted up in a substantial manner. B.F. Bolton, complete for gas, $19.33; for oil, $17.55. Baker & CULBERT, $15.50 for gas; without gas pipe, $15.00. On the recommendation of the committee Baker & CULBERT's bid was accepted.

    32. [S546] Chester Times, p. 5, Damages Awarged (sic), 13 Oct 1883.
      The case of Dr. William B. Ulrich, who instituted a suit against Baker & CULBERT for damages to a horse owned by him, was heard before a board of arbitration on Thursday afternoon, consisting of Messrs. I. Engle Cochran, Thomas I. Leiper and John Spencer. The trouble grew out of an accident to the physician's horse, which fell into a sewer dug by the above firm in front of James Harvey's residence on Broad street nearly two years ago and received injuries which disabled it for some time. The evidence produced tended to show that the firm neglected to display the proper signal lights to warn people of the danger, and after hearing the testimony of several persons they fixed the amount of damages at $30 against the firm of Baker & CULBERT.

    33. [S546] Chester Times, p. 1, col. 4, A Fractious Animal, 19 Sep 1883.
      A horse belonging to Baker and CULBERT, plumbers and gas fitters, took a notion to elevate its heels this morning on Morton avenue, and created some excitement by rearing and plunging at a great rate, until its temporary fit had passed away. The animal did more damage to itself than the wagon to which it was attached.

    34. [S546] Chester Times, p. 5, Damages Awarged[sic], 13 Oct 1883.
      The case of Dr. William B. Ulrich, who instituted a suit against Baker and CULBERT for damages to a horse owned by him, was heard before a board of arbitration on Thursday afternoon, consisting of Messrs. I. Engle Cochran, Thomas I. Leiper and John Spencer. The trouble grew out of an accident to the physician's horse, which fell into a sewer dug by the above firm in front of James Harvey's residence on Broad street nearly two years ago and received injuries which disabled it for some time.

      The Globe Gas Generator recently put in Bower's mill at Sixth and Madison streets, has proven a very satisfactory investment....The apparatus was put in by James P. Wood & Company, 39 South Fourth street, Philadelphia, the manager being T. Van Kennel, while Baker & CULBERT are the agents.

    38. [S546] Chester Times, p. 3, col. 3, Beneficent Result of Darkness, 28 Nov 1884.
      The light at Sixth and Crosby streets was put out at midnight last night according to orders, leaving the locality in total darkness. Aided by this burglars went to work on Baker & CULBERT's office door unmolested and unseen. They pried the galvanized iron screen off, took out a pane of glass and then burst the door open. They then passed into the ware-room and emptied two or three boxes of brass valves. No attempt was made to open the safe, and the thieves probably only occupied a few minutes at their work. They were evidently acquainted with the location of material in the ware-room, for nothing else than the stolen articles were disturbed. There is no clue to the perpetrators of the deed.

    39. [S546] Chester Times, p. 3, col. 6, A Word on the Lamp Question, 11 Dec 1884.
      Editor Chester Times: On Monday evening next the City Council will [sic] on Baker & CULBERT's petition to have the lamp at Sixth and Crosby streets kept burning all night. With this the gas committee are to report on the advisability of keeping all the street lamps burning all night. Now there is no doubt but such a measure meets with the approval of every citizen of Chester, even though it does mean more on the expense account, yet no effort has been made by the people to show that they are in favor of such action. Why not have petitions circulated in each ward and sent to Council on Monday night? That body would know at once what are the wishes of the people in the matter. If Council refuses to burn the lamps all night you will hear from someone, but why can't this talking be done now at the proper time of it! The people have the floor. ALL NIGHT.

      CULBERT & Brother are rapidly pushing to completion the heating apparatus in the Hill street school and expect to have it all finished in a few days. They have also just completed putting in some drains and pumps in Mr. Morris' houses on Eight street, and they are also very busy at several points in the borough with different orders.
