Does anyone have more information about the CULLEN and PETTIT families in Van Wert, Ohio?
My ggg-grandfather Bartholomew (Bart) CULLEN, born abt 1838, and his wife Bridget CULLEN, born abt 1843, emigrated from Ireland to the US sometime before 1861 with his brother Patrick Cullen, born abt 1834.They apparently settled initially in Pennsylvania, but were settled in VAN WERT county, Ohio by 1865.Bart CULLEN worked for the railroad. Their children were: Augustus Cullen, born abt 1879, Bartholomew W. Cullen, born abt 1870, Francis Cullen, born abt 1872, Joseph C. Cullen, born abt 1874, Patick J. Cullen, born abt 1865,Thomas C. Cullen, born abt 1861,and
James H. Cullen, born abt 1863--married Annette (Nettie) Pettit in Van Wert in 1894--their children were Marvel and Helen.Any information would be greatly appreciated! --Sharon, Sharon_ra@msn.com
