I know you said you did not have much on the Culp's, but if anything here rings and bells, I would appreciate any help on my Culp line. I myself only located John's siblings in the last week.

Have you fixed the marriages of Julia Sarah "Sallie" Ravenscroft's marriages on your web page?

Do you know the first name of the McCune man she married - did they have any children?

I hope to fill in some of the spaces that I still have - someone is suppose to give me Nancy Culp and Robert Price's siblings.

This should give you some background information to include for Julia Ravenscroft and John Culp.

Keep me posted.
