Children of John Cullumber

Children of John Cullumber and Martha "Patsy" Forguson

The obituary of Thomas Cullumber stated that he was one of 12 children of John and Patsy Cullumber.  Therefore we have all of the children.


1.  Allen Cullumber   1815? Married (1) Nancy Lilly.  I have found no Allen's in the Cullumber family nor in the Forguson group.  Possibly it is a last name used as a first name.  All records show his year of birth as 1815. It is possible that Allen and Nancy were twins. .

2.  Nancy Cullumber 1815 married Elijah Lilly
3.  Thomas F. Cullumber 1817 married (1) Emily Lilly.  Possibly named after Martha Ferguson's father? Thomas Ferguson?
4.  Mary Cullumber   1821 married John Morford.      There was a Mary Ferguson in the county
 5. Martha Cullumber ? possibly named after her mother.
Martha Cullumber, married 24 July 1843, in Madison County, Ohio, Benjamin Gardner. Martha died before January 1851, because Benjamin married her sister Tobitha.  See Tobitha.  Benjamin and Martha are not known to have had children.
