Julia Ann Gordon Coulter

My GGG-Grandmother

My GGG Grandmother Julia was the daughter of Joseph and Jane "Jennie" Lehew Gordon. She was the widow of William M. Coulter, a Confederate veteran, who died in 1895. Julia was survived by her children William J., Charles and Milton Coulter, Lucinda Phillips, Annie Deener and Julia Burkitt, and numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Julia was a very involved member of the Brownsville Church of the Brethren. She was a member of the Sewing Circle and the Sunday School Visiting Committee. She once made rugs which she sold door to door and the proceeds went to buy benches for the old church.
In her later years, Julia spent much of her time living at her son Milton's home, where she had her own kitchen, according to her granddaughter Anna Mae.
More memories from her late granddaughter, Anna Mae Coulter Kelbaugh: "My grandmother Julia was one of the sweetest person on earth. She was so kind and nice to everyone. She also was a great Christian, and a great church-goer. I remember her staying every weekend with my father and mother. She was the one to let me bake my first cake at the age of 10."
Memories from another granddaughter, the late Mary Coulter Taylor, as told with help from her daughter Mary Lou: "She was strict and religious. The family lived in Yarrowsburg, on the side of the mountain. She was not overweight, probably on the lean side like some of the Coulters. Mother went to the Church of the Brethren with her sometimes. Early on the women wore black bonnets to church. Later they wore white net prayer coverings on their heads. Her grandmother Coulter loved flowers and Mother remembers that there were flowers planted on both sides of the walk to their house."
