Sherman CULP of Plymouth, Ohio
Source:  Anon.  1894.  Commemorative Biographical Record of the Counties of Huron and Lorain, Ohio.  J.H. Beers & Co., Chicago, IL, pp. 429-430.  Boldface added.
SHERMAN CULP, a well-known attorney of Plymouth, Ohio, is a native of same, born November 1, 1854.  Christian Culp, the grandfather of subject, was born in the seventeenth century, in New York, where the pioneers of the family in America settled after coming from Germany.

When a young man Christian Culp migrated to Ohio, in which state he married Nellie Burton, a descendant of Scotch pioneers. Shortly after his marriage he purchased 700 acres of land (embracing almost the whole site of Plymouth) in New Haven township, Huron county, and moving hither in 1835, established a grist-mill and carding-mill, both of which he carried on in conjunction with his farm.  At the time of this settlement Plymouth consisted of two or three log cabins.  Here five sons and three daughters were born to Christian and Nellie Culp, only two of whom are yet living: Jacob, now of Mansfield, Ohio, and Mrs. Polly Sherman, of Plymouth. 

Henry Culp, father of the subject of this sketch, was the second child in order of birth.  At the age of twenty-five he married Hannah Baker, a daughter of pioneer settlers of Ripley township, and to their union were born four sons and three daughters.  The father died February 13, 1889, at the age of sixty-two years, and his widow now resides on the home of her childhood in Ripley township. 

Sherman Culp, the subject proper of this memoir, was born, reared and educated at Plymouth, and is now the owner of the home founded by his grandfather, Christian Culp.  At the age of twenty-four years he entered the law office of John W. Bell, at Plymouth, read law under his direction, and in 1886 was admitted to the bar at Columbus, Ohio.  During this term of study the young lawyer was elected mayor of the town and has filled the offices of notary public and justice of the peace.  In 1888 he was the nominee of the Democratic party for prosecuting attorney of Huron county and went within 327 votes of being elected.  He has served in the council of Plymouth and takes an active part in all public affairs.  He is also popular in social circles, and is a member of the K. of P. and I.O.O.F.

His marriage with Louise Strong, daughter of E. D. Strong, took place at Plymouth September 13, 1882.  To them three children were born, namely: Ross S., Henry S. and Frank R., but the death of the latter occurred September 4, 1893.

Mr. Culp's law practice is not confined by any means to Huron, but extends throughout the four or five adjoining counties.  The business of the office is almost exclusively in civil law, of which Mr. Culp is an able exponent and, in the practice of which, he is very prominent.
