Currently the matriarch of the Dosch family is Larnell Smaihall Dosch. The patriarch of the Culpon family is Douglas Holmes Culpon, Jr. (aka Doug)  Larnell’s family has roots from Texas,Louisiana, Austria-Bohemia and England. Doug’s family is from Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Germany and England.

Less than fifty miles separated members of both the Dosch and Culpon families in the northern  part of Yorkshire in the 19th century. We are lucky that over a hundred years later these families could unite in Texas and share their culture and heritage.
