  • Notes 
    • James never married. According to family legend, James was the family member who was more in touch with other members of the family, as opposed to Mathew. Family legend hints that James left behind a trunk of belongings after his death, which included letters to family in Philadelphia, Ireland and Knoxville, as well as the original family bibles. These items were last believed to be in the possession of Rowena Kirby Duncan before she passed away. Their current whereabouts are unknown. [ref. Jennifer Burstein, Feb 2007]

      Letter to James Park from Andrew Park dated 11 May 1841.
      "Esther Jane Culbert has shewn herself to be a very worthy girl and a very dutifull daughter and sister. From her own earnings after sending money formerly to her mother she has now paid the passage to Philadelphia for all the family now in Ireland. They however have consulted that only Joseph and Nancy and Elizabeth will go out at this time leaving Andrew and Catherine and their Mother who is but frail to another opportunity. They are all busily employed this day preparing for embarkation..... There is no satisfactory intelligence from either Matthew or James Culbert for the last two years."
