That's a good one.  Up until now Lancaster Electric fans(D. H. Kulp  Crescent Electric Co. Crescent ceiling fans) were traced back as far as 1894 in Electrical trade.  Kulp solicited inventors.

WHO is ..B. T. Kulp?  Brother?

I saw that reference to a Kulp in 92 as well.

Here's a link showing Crescent Kulp dabbling in fans as far back as 1887 in Lancaster.

D. H. Kulp can be found as early as 86 patent filing as a witness.  Who to h ell is B. T. Kulp?  I can't find a peep of his name in the books. The fact he is in Lancaster connects him to D. H. Kulp.

These images date 87.

Here's something to ponder. About two hours from Lancaster is Shamokin. This was home to Edison's second three wire electric plant and home to the first electrically lit church. What a buzz it must have caused and the newspaper coverage. There was a B T Kulp associated with the local paper. He would have possibly had a first hand look at the wonders of an electrical world someday. I can't confirmed the dates he was with the paper however.
