 - Obituary - Henry W. Culbertson, who departed this life on the 28th ultimo, was born near Chambersburg, Penn., February 22nd, 1797.  In 1803 his parents moved to Ohio and took up residence at Dayton, Henry while there learning the Saddlery and Harness trade with Col. Reed.  While with Col. R. he was a bearer of dispatches to General Harrison at Cincinnati in 1812.  On returning from the trip he volunteered to go to Ft. Wayne and relieve his brother, Jos. Culbertson, who was on duty there, on account of sickness in his family.  On the 25th of February 1819 he was married to Mrs. Marie Coleman, sister of the late Dr. Asa Coleman, of Troy.  He was connected with most all of the public improvements which were made in this locality during the earlier portion of his life, as surveyor of the old State Road, locating the D. & M. R. R. etc. and for many years was one of the leading merchants of Troy.  On the day of Mr. Culbertson's funeral we heard a gentleman remark, who had come to Troy with his parents just 49 years ago, that Mr. C. was the last survivor of all the married men in Troy at that time.
