Birth: Dec. 10, 1857
Death: Oct. 18, 1929

Son of William Henry Culp and Evalena Howard

Appointed postmaster for Elva, Marshall County, Kentucky on 27 Feb 1908.

"25 Feb 1907 - Paducah Sun
Mayfield, Ky., Feb 25 -

It Is reported that there has been found lead and cobalt on the farm of Monroe Culp in the north part of the county, near J. H. Carter's Mill, better known as the ''Old Lyles Mill'' on Clark's River.

For a long time it has been thought that there was lead in that vicinity, but all efforts to find it were
futile until an old man came in some time ago, and upon investigation, found the results as above stated.

If this be true, it is lucky for Mr Culp, as of course he will be able to sell his land for a large price and it will cause land to "go up" in that neighborhood.

It is said that the same man found on the same land a very fine quality of potters clay. It is accessible to the N C railroad, and if either of the discoveries are in paying quantities, they will bring into the country much money.
We hope that it is so."
