    BIOGRAPHY: From Patricia A. Fogle, "Descendants of John and Mary (Miller ) Cullers of Shenandoah County, Virgnia," PO Box 128, Quincy. PA 17247-01 28; (Patricia A. Fogle, 2006), Pg ix
    "Jacob Köller purchased a property called Den of Wolves in the northeaste rn part of Frederick county in 1754. As far as I can determine, this i s the first time he shows up in records in Frederick County. ... "
    "I believe that John, not owning property of his own in Frederick County , must have lived and worked on the farm of his father. Den of Wolves wa s sold by Jacob on August 18, 1777, just four days before John went to th e Shenandoah Valley to purchase Teboe's Fort. This leads me to believe t hat Jacob gave John money to purchase that property. However, Jacob di d not move to the valley with John at that time, as he purchased a half o f lot No. 136 in Frederick City on July 20, 1777 for 40 [pounds], subjec t to a ground rent of 1 [pound] payable yearly to Daniel Dulaney. He sol d this land in 1780. It is not known whether Jacob and Maria moved to Vi rginia at this time, but we do know that he was living with John and Mar y at the time of John's death, because John mentions him in his will."...
    ""Known children of Johannes (John Cullers) KOLLER and Anna Maria MULLE R are:
    i. Maria Magdalena KOLLER, born 17 February 1776, died 23 June 1838. Nam ed as Koller in baptismal record.
    ii. Elizabeth CULLERS, born about 1779 .
    iii. Katherine CULLERS, born 1785, died 5 January 1843.
    iv. Mary CULLERS, born about 1784 in Fort Valley, Shenandoah Co, VA. Sh e married John RAMSBERGER 12 August 1801 in Shenandoah Co, VA. (Origina l Cullers Genealogy Collection.) Birth: IGI. Marriage: ward of John Shear man. There is a belief that she was also married a second time, but ther e is no proof, as the marriage record naming Mary Ramsberger as the brid e and Daniel Clem as the groom was found in Virginia, and it is my belie f that Mary Cullers and John Ramsberger moved to Ohio before 1829. Furthe r, the Clem family history by Dee Clem doesn't show a marriage between Da niel Clem and any Cullers. John Ramsberger was found on the 1830 census o f Tuscawaras Co, OH.
    v. Jacob CULLERS, born 1 January 1786, died after 1850.
    vi. John Randolph CULLERS, born 21 December 1789, died 19 September 1828 .
    vii. Henry Samuel CULLERS, born 17 June 1792, died 22 February 1865.
    viii. Daniel CULLERS, born 23 August 1794, died 6 August 1882."

    !BIOGRAPHY: From Patricia A. Fogle, "Descendants of John and Mary (Mille r) Cullers of Shenandoah County, Virgnia," PO Box 128, Quincy. PA 17247-0 128; (Patricia A. Fogle, 2006), Pg 1
    ?1. Johannes (John Cullers) KOLLER was born 1747. (Original Cullers Genea logy Collection.) Since we don't know when John's father, Jacob came to t his country from Germany, there is no way to know whether John and his br others were born in Germany or America, but I believe they were all bor n in this country. In a biography of a grandson of John's brother, Michae l, the grandson stated that his grandfather was born in America, but he d oesn't say exactly where. As Michael was the oldest known child, if he wa s born in this country, that would certainly mean that the rest of the ch ildren of Jacob and Maria Magdalena were also born here. The Shenandoah C ounty 1880 census shows Daniel's parents both born in Maryland, but I don 't have any proof of that, and as we all know that census records are no t always accurate, that could be incorrect. John's name was Johannes Koll er on the church record of his first child's baptism. This was his name i n German, and the name he was given at baptism. He became John Kullers wh en he moved to Virginia, which later became Cullers. Marriage: Lutheran M arriages and Burials 1743881, Weiser, pg 10. Birth and Death: Borden #3 , p 212. Tombstone. Will: Shenandoah Co VA Will Book E, p 58, 16 Sept 17 96/13 Dec 1796. Executors: wife Mary and son-in-law Henry Burner. Wit: Pe ter Peters, Daniel Golladay, Adam Reddenour, and Jeremiah McKay. His sign ature is "John Collers." 3rd Supplement to DAR Patriot Index. 1976. p. 1 3 lists John Keller (Kuller) for Patriotic Service.
    ?On 22 Aug 1777, John Kullers purchased 251 acres of land in Powells For t Valley and his descendent Orie Munch owned part of this same land, it h aving been in the family ever since. As of March 1995, Orie was in a nurs ing home, and his granddaughter was purchasing it with her husband. Howev er, on September 27, 1997, the property was sold at auction and was out o f the family for the first time since it was purchased by John in 1777 . John Cullers did not build the house in which he lived and raised hi s family. The buildings were already on the land when he bought it. Th e building was known locally as the Teboe Fort and Stockade. After John' s death, the old home was used as a bam and his son Daniel built a new ho use, still standing, the one owned by Orie Munch. In 1950 the old bam ble w down and a new bam was built on the same site. The present bam marks th e location of the original "Fort" or house. John's tombstone has name spe lled John Kullers. His father, our immigrant ancestor is buried next t o him, named as Jacob Kullers.
    ?Family legend in Virginia says that John Cullers was a Baptist preache r who lived near Hagerstown, MD and lreached in a circuit around that are a, but no records have been found to substantiate that belief. Frederic k County, MD, records show that he was married in Frederick County, by t he Lutheran minister, in 1775, and their first child as born and baptize d in Frederick County in 1776, also by the Lutheran minister. All record s show that the Kollers were Lutheran, different members of the family ha ving been active in the Frederick, Jefferson, Middletown and Feagaville L utheran churches in Frederick County, MD. Lutheran marriage records and b aptism records list all of the Kollers which are known to have been born , or lived, in Frederick County.
    ?John never owned property in Frederick County, so it is assumed that h e helped his father, Jacob, on the farm, 'Den of Wolves' until he moved t o Virginia. His father sold "Den of Wolves" just four days before John pu rchased Teboe's Fort in Powell's Fort Valley. Jacob purchased a lot in Fr ederick City, and I believe that he helped John to purchase the propert y in Virginia with the money he received from the sale of 'Den of Wolves. ' I don't believe that John owned other property before purchasing Teboe' s Fort, although, again, family legend says that he owned other propert y in Shenandoah County. No deed for any other property has been found, a s far as I have been able to determine. He was still living in Maryland p rior to the purchase of the fort in 1777.
    ?Jacob, John's father, was still living in Frederick County, MD when th e census of 1790 was taken, so he did not move to Virginia to live with J ohn and Mary until after that time. It is not known whether his second wi fe was still living at the time he moved to Virginia.
    ?On May 6, 2001, Revolutionary War markers were placed on the graves of J ohn and Mary Kullers in Dry Run cemetery based on the fact that John wa s supposed to have been an associator in Frederick County, MD during th e War. This information has been used by members of the family to becom e members of the DAR, but I believe it is false information, based on on e man's assumption that Jacob Koller, and Jacob Keller, in Frederick Coun ty were the same person, namely Jacob Koller. Based on deeds found in Fre derick County for these two men, it is a proven fact that they were not t he same person.
    ?The following is the entry found in the book of Revolutionary War Patrio ts of Frederick County: 'KELLER [KELLAR], John. Associator in December, 1 775 [Ref: E-169]. (Name appeared three times on the list of Associators) . Subscribed to the Oath of Allegiance in 1778 [Ref: C-26]. 'John Kellar, ' private enlisted on July 1, 1776, in Capt. Peter Mantz's company, and m arched from Frederick Town to Leonardtown, and from there to Philadelphia , arriving on August 23, 1776 [Ref: A-47]. A 'John Koller (c1742-1796) , son of Jakob Koller (d. 1765), married Anna Maria Miller (no date given ) [Ref: 0-153]." Why the DAR found this to be conclusive proof that Joh n Cullers was an associator, I will never know.?

    ?He married Anna Maria MULLER 4 April 1775 in Frederick, Frederick Co, MD . (Lutheran Marriages and Burials 1743-1811, pg 10. Frederick S. Weiser ) She was born 30 August 1751 in Frederick Co, MD. Mary was the daughte r of Christian Muller. Her mother's name is not given in the baptism rec ord. She was probably a cousin to Elizabeth Muller, who married John's br other, Jacob. Birth and baptism: (Maryland German Church Records, Volum e 3, pg 12.) 1751, Aug 30, Christian Muller, a daughter, Anna Maria, spo nsors: Jacob Sturm and wife, Anna Maria 1751, Oct 27, Johann Helfrich Sch aum, pastor, October 1751 - May 1752. Her brother, Johann Jacob, was als o baptized by the Lutheran minister in Frederick. ...

    ?John Cullers (son of Jacob the 2nd and Mary) and brother of John and Jac ob and Katherine). This is our direct ancestor.
    ?John was born about 1747 in Germany. He married Anna Maria Mullerin, a d aughter of Jacob Muller. This is recorded in the early Lutheran Church re cords on file at the Gettysburg Seminary, Gettysburg, Penn. It states i n the record that both of them were unmarried and 'both of them from Hunt in Crick in Frederic County, Md.'.
    ?Orie Munch, a direct descendent of John Cullers and living now on the ol d Cullers place in the Fort Valley, has given us permission to copy the f ollowing from his mss., 'Home Place History, Tradition and Memories':
    ?'John Cullers was according to family legend, a Baptist preacher who liv ed near Hagerstown, Md., and preached in a circuit around that area. He m oved to the Valley of Va. and first bought a farm west of Woodstock, Va . His farm was located in a dry region and during the summer months he ha d to drive his livestock some distance to water. It was during a visit wi th his sister, wife of John Bushong, that he found an adjoining plantatio n for sale. This farm was watered by Passage Creek and three brooks. Joh n Cullers purchased this farm from John Conrad Teboe and his wife Esthe r in August 1777.'
    ?Note: It is interesting to note that land transactions in Frederick Coun ty, Md., show that Jacob Cullers (John's father) sold the last of the lan d "Den of Wolves" just four days before the date of Aug. 22, 1777 when Jo hn bought 251 acres of land in Powell's .Fort, indicating that possibly J acob helped John to buy the land in the Fort. After 1780, Jacob made hi s home with John .in the Fort. In 1796 (Min. Bk. 1812-1825 p. .356 Fred . Co., Va.) John Collars was one of the purchasers of part of Hite, Green , McKay and Duff's land grant (surveyed Orange Co. 1746) in Powell's Fort , Va., paying 120 Pounds for an undetermined amount of land.
    ?Again, quoting from''Home Place History, Tradition and Memories":
    "'Later John bought 25 acres from Jacob Golladay, giving him a total of 2 76 acres. Soon after the Revolutionary War, he had to buy this farm again . It had been a part of the land granted to Lord Fairfax by the King of E ngland and was one of the .old grants not recognized by the new U. S. gov ernment. Tradition says that John Cullers had to pay $600 to get title t o this place and that he sold his farm west of Woodstock so he could mak e this payment. Others had to rebuy their farms also and feeling ran so h igh that when Lord Fairfax's agent came to collect from some of the holdi ngs in the Valley, a group tied him on his horse and sent him out of th e Valley with a warning never to return.
    "'This plantation was originally known as Teboes Fort and Stockade and i t had a group of cabins with a stockade built across a brook as defens e against the Indians.'
    ?John did not build the house in which he lived and raised his family. Th e buildings were already there. After his death, the old home was used a s a barn and his son Daniel built a new house which is still standing. (O ccupied 1973 by Orie Munch--a direct descendent.) The old barn blew dow n and in 1950 a new barn was built on the same spot. The present barn mar ks the location of the original Fort and house.
    ?When John Cullers died in 1796, he was buried in Dry Run Cemetery, Powel ls Fort, Va. A copy of his will follows. This will is on record at the Cl erk's Office in Woodstock, Va. (Bk. E p. 58). Here it is with the exact w ords and spelling:
    "'1796 - At a Court held for the County of Shenandoah on Tueeday the l3t h day of Decamber, 1796. This last will and Testament of John Cullers dec 'd.
