Samuel Culbertson of Spartenburg District, SC and later of Georgia, had four sons that we can document, Green, Bird, John and Thomas. However, in the 1790, 1800 and 1810 censuses, there are many other male children in Samuel's household.
In 1790, there were Samuel has three males under 16 in his household. None of the four I've listed above had yet been born.
In the 1800 census, Samuel has 4 males under 10, 3 males under 16, 1 male 16-26. Same thing, none of the four listed above had yet been born.
in the 1810 census, Samuel has 7 males under 26 in his home....3 under ten (that would be three of the four we know).....three from 10-16...who are they? They can't even be the same boys as in the 1790 census.
Does anyone have any idea about all these boys? Are there unconnected Culbertson males showing up in SC or Georgia during these periods? I am aware that many of these children might have been relations other than sons, or maybe unrelated to Samuel at all.
I believe that Samuel may have had earlier sons than the four in our records. Maybe one of them was the "Samuel, Jr" who administered his estate.
