  • Notes 
    • More and more my research is indicating that James (husband of Elizabeth Park, father of Mathew the immigrant) was probably born in Newtown Cunningham. The Park family, on the other hand, had property in Balleighan near Manorcunningham. Appartly, the family of James and Elizabeth Park Culbert fell on hard times around 1802 and moved in with the Park family. Eventually, the Parks built a house for the Culberts on the Park land and transferred a part of the Park land over to the Culberts around 1810. [ref. Jena Burstein].
