I was curious about your family before your grandfather Charles. I am trying to get a handle on the Culver Family in Canada. Did your family migrate from Ontario, or up from the US?

There were three Culver's that started the line in Ontario in the late 1700's early 1800's, Jabez, Timothy and Peter.
Just curious if there was any connection there.

The information we have has my great great grandfather (Samuel Marshall Culver)moving from West Virginia to North Dakota to Retlaw, Alberta Canada then back to West Virginia (My great grandfather Charles Culver remained in Retlaw with his brother James). We believe Samuel was in Pennsylvania then Ohio prior to West Virginia. We know Samuels father is John J Culver and Velina? Smith - we are unsure of whether they came from Canada. Please let me know if you see any connection. We are very hopeful to find more information about John J.

Hi Margaret,

Just reading your message and wondered.......I am related to the Culver/Colver line, but my gg-grandfather was Edwin Lewis Shaw. We became Shaw's when Freelove Culver married a Shaw. But the name Edwin is an unusual name but used frequently in this family. Do we have any connection? Hope to hear back from you.

Hi, I have some information that may or may not be of some use to you. I too am researching a family tree. My father and grandfather lived in Retlaw. My grandfather came over form the Ukraine in ~ 1910 with one sister and one brother (names unknown) and they were married and they had two sons (names Unknown) and the people they married were farmers in the area. (names Unkown). My grandfathers name was Carl Susinski and my fathers name is Greg Susinski and they both worked for the railroad in Retlaw. There is a book out there that I have seen from the Lomond area that has some historical information on the Retlaw area. I would suggest contacting the Lomond town office and perhaps you can get a copy as it contained the names and informaiton on many people from the area. Happy hunting!!
