Charles William Culver, son of Walter Culver and Emily Calkins, was born 18 September 1852 at Arena, Wisconsin. He married Bessie Elsworth 18 March 1875 at Arena. She was born 3 April 1856 at Mazomanie, Dane County, Wisconsin, to William Elsworth and Eliza Clark. She died 13 November 1918 in Dickens, Iowa. Charles then married Carolyle (Smith) Morton 12 October 1920 at Canton, Lincoln, South Dakota. They moved to Seattle, King, Washington, where he resided from 1921 until his death 23 May 1931 at Seattle.
