      I am reading the TVA surveys of families impacted by the building of the dam. And the ONLY Culbert living in a log cabin is Barney who is renting from Joe Culbert. Which would confirm current day Joe Culbert saying it had always remained in his family line. Not that I doubt him, I do want some paper trail for it though. It appears but I need to check some dates, that as Fran said, her Father was living there (brother to Joe Culbert of that time) and moved to Oklahoma. Joe most likely bought it as the TVA survey shows that he owned several properties. I am thinking that Joe's oldest son Phillip may have lived there after Jim moved to Oklahoma, he died in 1934, and Barney had only lived there three months at the time of the survey in 1934. I don't have paper proof of that yet but it makes sense. At that time, Joe's other son Gordon is living as a share cropper on other property owned by Joe. We know Barney moved on to Oklahoma and at that point, most likely Gordon then rented or was given the house by his Father as current day Joe says he grew up in it. As for Letitia Kirby's original property, it most likely went underwater but no real proof. Her son, Matthew Kirby's place did go underwater but he (in the survey) was living in a seven room frame house that was only 22 years old (that would mean it was built about the time he married Maymie Hodges) but I have no way of knowing yet if that house was built on Letitia's land or perhaps Hodges. He did have a car and many home furnishings that no other Culbert's at that time had. Allison Cheyne Simpson, Dec 2014.
