Ponney/Fenney [Finney?] Cullumber, Ferguson's Reg, Ross County, Ohio
Phenes Cullumber, Odles' Co, same as John Cullumber

These seem to be in the same geographic area, basically from Ross County, Ohio. Note that John Cullumber of Franklin and Madison Counties, Ohio, had a son named Phenus. John also married a Ferguson. These people must be connected but I am not sure how.
