Confirmation of the marriage of CLARA BROWNING AND DAVID CULBERTSON, from "Genealogy of Culbertson and Culbertson Families," revised edition, The Courier Company, Printers, Zanesville, Ohio, 1923 by Lewis R. Culbertson, M. D. follows:
Page 76: "David Culbertson lived in Caswell Co., N. Car, Mar. Miss Clara Browning of Caswell Co., N. Car. Feb. 24, 1782 (from license) Farmer. David left Caswell Co., N. Car. Before 1790, as he does not appear on tax lists 1785, nor does he appear Census [for] S. Car.; Georgia Census 1790 destroyed. He moved to Georgia 1789. The Clerk of Court of Greene Co., Ga. writes me: "I find on deed records No. 1, p. 544, Jan. 18, 1790, a deed from John Cassna to David Culbertson for 400 acres, but cannot find any will or deed whereby he disposed of this, so there must be a will somewhere disposing of this land between 1790 and 1817." The deed above to David Culbertson in Jan., 1790, shows he was in Greene Co., Ga., when Census 1790 was taken (Census of Ga. destroyed by British in 1812). The family records show positively that his widow lived in Greene Co., Ga., at time of her second marriage to Jonathan Harrolson (Haralson). After his death his widow lived in Greene Co., Ga.
