I am trying to determine who the parents (and other ancestors) of my 3rd great grandfather, Nathan Culver of Bath, NH.  He was born in 1789 supposedly in Westminster, VT, lived in Bath, NH, and died in nearby Haverhill, NH, in 1832.  His (second) wife was Abigail Mary Abbott (b 1794 Haverhill, NH; d 1877 in Bath, NH) whom he married in 1819.  A millwright, Jonathan Culver, sold Nathan land in Bath (on the Wild Ammonoosuc River) in 1815, but I have been unable to determine their relationship.

My goal is to connect my line to Edward Culver, one of the original settlers of Dedham, MA.  I believe the Culvers migrated to the New London, CT, area and subsequently up the Connecticut River to VT and NH.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

My daughter and I have found several books on the Colver/Culver family, all available at or Open Library: Pioneer Sketches of Long Point Settlement by E.A. Owen, Colver-Culver Genealogy by Frederic Lathrop Colver, Through Three Centuries by Jesse Leonard Rosenberger. Our Colvers are descended from Edward's son John and his son Jabez. It's a fascinating family.  Ann
