I had a quick look about online and found the name Culbert in the parish of Aghanunshin. This parish is located outside Letterkenny.
I found the name Moses Culbert on Griffiths Valuation from 1856.
The name Moses in not that common of a name so this person could be a cousin, uncle or the father of your Moses although there is no way to tell this.
You can check this website for the above info.
All of the other Culbert familys live in parishes quite close to Letterkenny such as All Saints, Taughboyne and Stranorlar.
I also checked the 1901 Census records and found between 3 and 4 familys of Culberts in Donegal - The family from Loughkeel is the nearest to the area the above Moses was from.
There is a family that live in Manorcunningham - This is quite close to Letterkenny.
I will ask some people in the Letterkenny area and see if they know of any Culbert families that may have lived in the area but going by Griffiths Valuation, and both the 1901 and the 1911 census there doesn't seem to be any Culberts in Letterkenny (Parish of Leck/Conwal)

I just want to refer you to this forum - I found the topic Culbert for Donegal.
I'm not sure it will be of any help but I will keep trying.

Thank you, baya10. I know of these Culberts, but their earliest known Culbert does not connect with mine. Any relations would have to be at least a couple more generations back, all unknown at this time.
