From Historical Register of Virginians in the Revolution, index p 198
Cullember, John 7 Cl, E [I was sent this and don't know what the abbreviations are. Presumably it refers to the following record.]

John Cullumber in company of Wm/Will Johnston in the 7th Virginia Regiment commanded by Colonel Daniel Morgan.  Morgan was from Winchester, Frederick County, Virginia.  He was one of the really famous generals of the war. This regiment, as nearly as I can tell, was supposed to have come from the Berkeley County area.  We need to research some of the other names in this to tell if this is true or not. There is a lot of information about names from that area and time period in Historic Shepherdstown by Danske Dandridge. It is out of copyright and available free on Google Books. There are rent rolls which were a type of tax list on pages 62-73.  I do not see these names in these lists.  But the rent rolls were the land owners and this muster roll is more likely to be single men without land.  There are other tax lists starting in 1783 and I have searched them for Cullumber, I have not searched them for these other names.
