Census records showed the Michael Culp family in Ohio near where daughter Anna married Peter Landis. Then came the biggest discovery: that the Culps, like the Landises, were Mennonites.

THE IMMIGRANT: A magazine article from Mennonite Historical Society traced the Culp line back to Michael Kolb who immigrated from Germany and settled in Rockingham, Virginia.

SPECIAL THANKS TO:Dorothy (Freeman) Landis who compiled Peter L. Landis History from 1841 to the present time which named the parents of Peter's wife Anna Culp, and the Mennonite Historical Library for obituaries and copies of magazine articles.

QUESTIONS: Through Ancestry.com I saw a Culp ancestry which showed an even earlier Culp being the immigrant. The information was to have been on a web page which no longer exists. Can someone help me with this ancestry? If Michael Kolb is the correct immigrant, where did he come from?
