He was married to Elizabeth Myers on January 22, 1824 in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania.
This is another one of those Culler's that no one seem to place. Many researchers have him as a son of George and Elizabeth (Grey) Culler. But in my research I found his birth in a book entitled American Catholic Historical Society, on page 259, for the date 1802. It reads, Coller, George, son of John and Catherine Coller, born November 25th, baptized October 15th. Sponsors, George and Anna Mary Ruffner. This I believe is the right George Culler, because the birth date is the same as in his obituary.
In the 1840 census, George and his family were living in Berlin Township, Holmes County, Ohio. He was listed as George Culler,Free White Persons - Males - Under 5: 2, Free White Persons - Males - 5 thru 9: 2, Free White Persons - Males - 30 thru 39: 1, Free White Persons - Females - Under 5: 1, Free White Persons - Females - 5 thru 9: 1, Free White Persons - Females - 10 thru 14: 1, Free White, Persons - Females - 30 thru 39: 1, Total - All Persons (Free White, Free Colored, Slaves): 9, Persons Employed in Agriculture: 1, Free White Persons - Under 20: 7, Free White Persons - 20 thru 49: 2, Total Free White Persons: 9, Total All Persons - Free White, Free Colored, Slaves: 9.
In the 1860 census, George and his family were living in Berlin, Holmes County, Ohio. He was listed as, George Culler, a laborer, age 58, born in Pennsylvania, and his wife, Elizabeth Culler, age 59, born in Pennsylvania, and their children listed were; Jacob Culler, a blacksmith, age 22, David Culler, a farmer, age 21, Andrew Culler, a farmer, age 18, Margaret Culler age 16, and Sevilla Culler, age 13, all listed born in Pennsylvania.
In the 1870 census, George was living with his son, David Culler, in Berlin, Holmes County, Ohio. He was listed as, George Culler, a widow, age 68, born in Pennsylvania.
In the 1880 census, George was still living with his son, David Culler, in Berlin, Holmes County, Ohio. He was listed as, George Culler, a widow, age 77, born in Pennsylvania. Also it stated in the census that both of George's parents were born in Pennsylvania.
George Culler was born in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania, November 25, 1802, and died June 8, 1894, aged 91 years, 6 months and 13 days. Mr. Culler was married to Elizabeth Myers of the same place in 1824, who died September 6, 1865, aged 65 years. He located in Holmes County, Ohio, in 1835, where he has since resided. Ten children were born unto them (five girls and five boys), eight of whom survive him. The oldest daughter died in Indiana at the age of sixty years, and the youngest son (aged 24 years) fell in the defense of his country. He has living one daughter in Indiana, one son in Nebraska, three sons and three daughters in Ohio. Since the death of his wife he has made his home exclusively with his son, David Culler, who has a family of seven children. It was his heart's delight to care for these children when small (he often spoke of it in his old age) and the children took delight in caring for him in his declining years. He was very much attached to the youngest child and pointed to him with pride. He always spoke very highly of his daughter-in-law, Mrs. David Culler, and often remarked that "she was worth her weight in gold." She was never too tired to do anything for his comfort and he often repeated that his last days were his best days. For many years he devoted much of his time to reading good books. His habits were regular, retiring early in the evening and rising early in the morning, making the fire, after which he had a season of prayer, before the rest of the family arose. He arose early Friday morning, and after making the fire, sat in his chair in his usual way where he was found dead, although he was in the best of health when he retired. His faith was that of a Presbyterian. His remains were taken to Berlin Cemetery Sunday morning where he was laid to rest beside his wife.
