JACOB KULP, farmer, P. 0. London, was born in Montgomery County, Penn., June 18, 1828. He is a son of David and Elizabeth (Shultz) Kulp, natives of Pennsylvania, where they married, lived and died, the former in 1867, and the latter in 1876. Our subject, when eight years of age, was put to work on a farm at $10 per month, and thus he continued until he was married, when he engaged to work for 50 cents per day. Four years later, he began farming as a renter, and twenty years after first renting, he purchased 130 acres of land in Delaware, and paid $3,000 on his purchase, but being unable to pay the balance, he had to give up his land. In 1876, he emigrated to Madison County. He married Lavina Longacre, a native of Pennsylvania, February 3, 1849, and by her has had ten children, viz.: Daniel, Francis, Virginia, William, Henry, Mary J., Albert, Levi, Webster and Hannah E.
