John T. Culbertson, was born in ZanesviIle, Ohio, September 23, 1862, and came with his parents to Tazewell County in 1865. Here he was educated in the public and high schools, and later assisted his father on the old homestead. At the age of twenty-one he started out for himself, purchasing a farm south of Delavan to which he has added, from time to time, until now he has 240 acres of land. In 1899 he bought a house and lot on West Fourth Street, Delavan, and there he has since resided, giving his time and attention, however, to the active management of his farm.
Mr. Culbertson believes in the doctrines of the Presbyterian Church, and politically he is affiliated with the Democratic party. In March, 1887, he was married, at Delavan, to Miss Jennie H. McKinstry, and they have two children, John T., and Robert M.
