    During the winter of 1850-51, the Stewarts, Culbertsons and probably the Simontons, came from Alabama to Louisiana. They apparently came up the Ouachita in a boat which was infested with cholera. They landed at Copenhagen, just below Columbia. Four members of the Culbertson family died January 1851. They were Green Culbertson's mother (100 years old), his wife, Susan, son Thomas Franklin and baby daughter, Laura. According to a letter by Lafayette Culbertson, they were buried in Caldwell Parish.

    The family story is that when the families landed at Copenhagen, someone was sent ahead to either purchase land or to New Orleans to purchase supplies. Apparently, this person was Duncan Stewart. He was never heard from since. It is not known whether he died of cholera , was met with harm, or simply absconded with the money.

    Green's grave is in the Davilla Cemetery at the back NW corner. I believe it was on 437 off of US l90 just before Davilla. You can also reach it from Salado or Jarrell.
