EDWARD HERRICK CULVER. b. 01/02/1832 Stockholm, NY; m. 02/03/1881 - Annie M. Johnson; d. 12/10/1892 Indian Point, Menard Cty, IL; Buried: Indian Point Cemetery, Menard Cty, IL.

Farmer and stock-raiser; born in St. Lawrence County, NY. Edward's parents, Betsey Holcomb, and Oliver Belden Culver came to Sangamon County, IL in 1835, when Edward was a toddler. Edward passed his youth and early manhood on his father's farm, receiving such an education as the schools of that early day afforded. He has been a resident of Sugar Grove (Sweetwater) Precinct since its organization. In connection with the heirs of the late John S. Culver, he owns 700 acres of well-improved land of which he has the management. He is a self-made man, in the fullest sense of the word. He is a Republican in politics, but quite liberal in his views of men and things. (From 1879 History of Menard County)

During the Civil War, Edward enlisted in the 133rd Illinois Volunteers, Company I, May 31, 1864. On June 3, the 133rd Illinois was ordered to the Rock Island (IL) Barracks. There the regiment was assigned to guard Confederate Prisoners of War. As part of the "Hundred Dazers" or hundred day enlistments, Edward was mustered out of the service at Camp Butler east of Springfield, IL on September 24, 1864.

Edward married Annie M. Johnson, a native of Sweden, on 02/03/1881. They had five children. Edward passed 12/10/1892 after catching pneumonia from chopping wood.

Edward's grandfather, Eliakim Culver, was a Patriot of the American Revolution, and served in a Company of the Green Mountain Rangers commanded by Captain Samuel Herrick (later Lt. Colonel). Edward's middle name likely comes from this officer.
