Thomas Culbreth

Thomas Culbreth (April 13, 1786 – April 16, 1843) was an American politician.

Born in Kent County, Delaware, eight miles northeast of Greensboro, Maryland, Cubreth attended the public schools and studied under private tutors. He moved to Denton, Maryland, in 1806 and was a clerk in a store there. He became a member of the congressional committee at Hillsboro in 1810, and was a member of the Maryland House of Delegates in 1812 and 1813. He was also cashier of the State Bank at Denton in 1813.

Culbreth was elected from the sixth district of Maryland as a Republican to the Fifteenth Congress and reelected to the Sixteenth Congress, serving from March 4, 1817 to March 3, 1821. He declined to be a candidate for reelection in 1820 to the Seventeenth Congress and for election in 1822 to the Eighteenth Congress. He was appointed chief judge of the Caroline County orphans’ court in 1822, was clerk of the executive council of Maryland from 1825 to 1838, and resided in Annapolis, Maryland. He returned to Denton in 1838 and engaged in mercantile pursuits, and soon afterward moved to "Orrell Farm", near Greensboro, where he died. He is interred in the family cemetery on the farm.
