      Allan Culbert has never heard of any siblings of Henry. However, in the 1890 Federal Census of Tremont Township, Schuylkill Co., PA there were, in addition to Henry [age 41], Sarah and their 8 children, also John Culbert age 34, Michael Culbert age 32, Edward Culbert age 23, and their respective families. All their occupations were listed as "miner". Catherine & John Culbert of Schuylkill Co. may well be his GG grandparents. The ages and locales all seem to fit with the verbal lore he has been told.
