Atlanta Constitution 2/24/1889 - COLONEL CULBERSON'S FUNERAL - - -
Yesterday all that was mortal of Colonel A. B. Culberson was laid to rest at Oakland.

The funeral was largely attended.

All West End and a large number of people from the city, assembled at Park Street Methodist Church to pay a last sad tribute to the honored dead.

Rev. A. G. Wardlaw read a selection from the P____ "God is my refuge" and from that text delivered a fitting eulogy on the Christian character of Colonel Culberson, which was so fittingly rounded up in his peaceful death.

The services were touchingly beautiful throughout. The procession was one of the longest seen here for a long while on the streets of Atlanta, and was but another evidence of the high esteem in which Mr. Culberson was held by his many friends in Atlanta.

It was late in the afternoon before the mornful cortege passed the gates of quiet Oakland and the solemn "ashes to ashes and dust unto dust" was pronounced over the grave of one who, in life, filled all the requirements of manly ___ and dying, left behind him a name untarnished and a reputation un______by a single action that was mean and low.

At a meeting of the Atlanta Bar, held in the city court room yesterday morning, Colonel M. J. Hani____was called upon to preside and Fortner King acted as secretary.

On motion of Colonel T. P. Westmoreland, sco___bgy Judge R. T. Dorsey, it was determined that the members of the Atlanta Bar should attend in a body the funeral of Colonel A. B. Culberson from the Park Street Methodist Church, in West End, at three o'clock in the afternoon. It was announced by Colonel G. A. Howell that street cars would be provided on Whitehall Street and that the cars would leave the corner of Alabama and Whitehall streets at 2:15 o'clock.

All further action in reference to the memory of the honored brother was deferred until the next regular bar meeting in March.
