A Genealogic History of Balthaser Culp and His Descendants, by Harold (Skip) Hunter


This is an appraisal and appreciative history of our Patriot and Pioneer, Baltzer Culp, who as a settler accomplished much to Jefferson County, Ohio, such success as defies imagination and probabilities… A soldier in the American Revolution, a Patriot in the cause of Freedom, one whose strength, courage and vision rendered constructive and bounteous services to the new land, into which he had so early immigrated. Living a most exemplary life to an advanced age, giving to the new world more than it returned to him, leaving it enriched and ennobled, a priceless heritage to the multitude of his descendants, to his posterity… He was an adventurer… helped to lay the foundation for a prosperous State, Ohio. In recognition of his services as a Soldier, Patriot, and Pioneer, we offer tribute to this brave, tireless adventurer.
