Nathan F. Culpepper

Male, #32373, (circa 1839 - 7 Dec 1864)
Father*James I. J. Culpepper (3 Jun 1806 - 15 Oct 1846)
Mother*Martha Byne Blackstone (28 Sep 1814 - 23 Dec 1899)
Extinct Surname?* The family branch headed by Nathan F. Culpepper is believed to have no living male descendants with the Culpepper surname. If you know otherwise, please contact Lew Griffin using the link at the bottom of this page. 
Birth*circa 1839 Nathan was born at Chambers Co., Alabama, circa 1839. 
Death of Father15 Oct 1846 His father James I. J. Culpepper died on 15 Oct 1846 at Coosa Co., Alabama
1850 Census23 Oct 1850 George, John, Nathan, Martha and Virginia listed as a household member living with Martha Byne Blackstone on the 1850 Census on 23 Oct 1850 at Coosa District, Coosa Co., Alabama.1 
Marriage*21 Apr 1858 He married Sarah Tabitha Herren at Harris Co., Georgia, on 21 Apr 1858.2 
1860 Census*1 Jun 1860 Nathan was listed as the head of a family on the 1860 Census at Harris Co., Georgia.3 
Birth of Son5 Feb 1861 His son John Washington Culpepper was born on 5 Feb 1861 at Shiloh, Harris Co., Georgia.4 
Civil War*between 1862 and 1864  An unknown person served in the military between 1862 and 1864, and was a in Private in Co B, 37th Georgia Infantry. 
Employment* Nathan's occupation: factory operator. 
Death*7 Dec 1864 He died at Franklin, Williamson Co., Tennessee, on 7 Dec 1864. 
Biography* The 1860 census of Harris Co., GA appears to show Martha (Blackstone) Culpepper and three of her sons clustered together. Unfortunately, what appear to be errors by the census taker make it difficult to sort out. The head of household for family 627 (1186 Dist, P.O. Mountain Hill, p. 90) is shown as a 22 year old male, born in Georgia, who is an "operator in factory" with $50 in personal property. Unfortunately, the name of the "male" is Martin Culpepper. The other members of the household are Tabitha Culpepper--an 18 year female born in Georgia, and a 4 month old infant girl. This would suggest that it was the household of Nathan F. Culpepper and his wife, Sarah Tabitha Herren. Possibly Nathan and his wife were living in the house of Martha (Blackstone) Culpepper who was recorded living next door in the house of his brother, John Culpepper.
Nathan F. Culpepper enlisted with Lt. Blanchard as a Private, Company F, 3 Batt'n Georgia Infantry on March 20 1862 at Columbus, Ga for the period of the War. On May 3rd 1863, Nathan and his brother George W. Culpepper received a pass to be absent and when they hadn't returned by 4:00 p.m. the next day, Nathan's commanding officer wrote to Headquarters that they were missing: ____________________Hd Qtrs Co F 3rd Ga Batt Near Shelbyville Tenn ______________________________________________May 4th 1863 Brig Genl W. B. Bates _____2nd Brigade _____McCow__ Division _________________________Genl ______________________________ On yesterday Privates George and Nathan Culpepper received a pass to be absent until four oclock and have not yet returned the presumption is that they have deserted as they sold their Knapsacks before leaving and taken all of their clothes with them they did not take their arms or ammunition. Below find descriptive list of each also their place of residence ______________________________I am very Respt ______________________________Jesse J. Bradford Capt ___________________________________Co "F" 3rd Ga Batt
Nathan was described as 24 years old, 5 feet 10 inches tall, with light hair and blue eyes. He was born in Chambers Co., AL and was a farmer who enlisted March 20, 1862 with Lt. Blanchard for the period of the war. Post Office for his place of residence was Mulberry Grove, Harris Co., GA. This situation was apparently resolved but the remaining service records for Nathan and George show them in Co "B" of the 37th Regiment of the Georgia Infantry. According to the Civil War pension application of his widow, Sarah, the couple married 10 Apr 1857. However, according to Harris Co., GA records, they applied for a license 21 Apr 1858 but there is no record of the actual marriage. Also there appear to be two dates for Nathan's death. He was supposed to have been killed 30 Nov 1864 in the Battle of Franklin, TN but another record shows that he was actually wounded at the Battle of Franklin and died 7 Dec 1864.

Biography* Daniel's birth was recorded in the "BIBLE FAMILY RECORD OF FRANCIS G. & EGLINTINE CULPEPPER": ___Daniel F. Culpepper__ Born december 5 1825
     Francis G. Culpepper's older brother, Daniel Peek Culpepper, had died 25 Oct 1825, only a couple of months before Daniel F. Culpepper was born. Presumably Daniel was named for his uncle. Since Daniel's parents married in Monroe Co., GA in Jan 1825, this is believed to have been Daniel's place of birth. No confirmation has been found for Daniel's middle name. A grandchild was named "Daniel Fey Burgin" and it has been suggested that "Fey" was Daniel's middle name. However, Mrs. C. M. (Pat Burgin) Lee wrote 2 Nov 1994 letter that according to Daniel Fey Burgin's sister, Marie, "her brother, Fey, was named after a photographer friend of the family." Obviously the photographer wasn't around in 1825 when Daniel F. Culpepper was born.
     Daniel's father, Francis G. Culpepper, has not been found in Georgia land records and so it is not known at what point Daniel's parents moved the family to Talbot Co., GA where they are found in 1830 census records. In Daniel's first appearance in census records he was unfortunately listed as one of three females 0-10 years of age in the household of Francis G. Culpepper. A microfilm copy of the census record was double checked and the head of household was clearly listed as "Francis G Culpepper" and his three young sons were definitely listed in the female column. Daniel's father moved his family to Chambers Co., AL in 1834 The family was still in Chambers Co., AL in 1840 when Daniel and his two younger brothers were correctly noted in census records as 3 males 10-15 years of age in the household of Francis Culpepper. The family moved to Mississippi in 1846. No marriage record has been found for Daniel in Chambers Co., AL and it is assumed that he moved to Mississippi with his parents.
     Daniel was not listed with his parents in the 1850 Lafayette Co., MS census. It is not known at what point Daniel moved to Texas. Mrs. C. M. (Pat Burgin) Lee wrote 2 Nov 1994 that "according to the Culpepper Heritage Society history, Daniel & Thomas in 1848 went to Texas before the rest of the family." They have not been found in 1850 Texas census records. There was a 23 year old "Daniel Culpepper" born in South Carolina that was listed (p. 368) as a farmer in the Marshall Co., MS census in the household of Mary K. Hardin. A 22 "Thos. J. Culpepper" was also listed nearby (p. 369) in Marshall Co., MS in the household of Robert I. Greer. Thomas was also listed as having been born in South Carolina. Since Marshall Co., MS shares a border with Lafayette Co., MS and the two were apparently living on nearby farms, it seems likely that these were Francis G. Culpepper's oldest sons out on their own before setting out to Texas. Daniel was listed with a Georgia place of birth in the 1860 and 1900 census records of Lavaca Co., TX and with an Alabama place of birth in the 1870 Lavaca Co., TX census. Since Francis G. Culpepper moved his family to Texas in 1851, presumably both Daniel and Thomas would have been in Texas by then. In 1853, Daniel's grandfather, John Culpepper, wrote to Francis G. Culpepper, "I thought Daniel was gone." It is not clear what this refers to, perhaps Daniel had contemplated moving on from Lavaca Co., TX and then changed his mind.
     Daniel is next noted in the marriage records of Lavaca Co., TX in 1855 and at this point he apparently settled down to stay. Daniel continued to live in Lavaca County, Texas until after the 1900 census when he moved to Devine in Medina County, Texas where he died. In the 1860 Hallettsville, Lavaca Co., TX census, Daniel Culpeper and his wife, Mary, and their daughter, Martha were listed twice. In records of family #245, living next door to his father, Francis, Daniel was listed with real estate valued at $1,200 and personal property valued at $1,000. In the listing for family #644, Daniel was listed as having $600 in real estate and $1,000 in personal property. Possibly Daniel owned both pieces of land and the census taker, possibly getting information from neighbors, didn't realize that the family was being recorded twice. Or, since census takers were paid by the head, perhaps some creative record keeping was done.
     Daniel served in the Confederate Army during the Civil War. On p. 54 of On The Headwaters of the Lavaca and the Navidad, Paul C. Boethel listed "D. F. Culpepper, private" on the: Muster roll of Frederick J. Malone's Company, organized at Sweet Home, August 6, 1861. Enlistment for state service for twelve months. Note on roll: "No arms of an improved style."
     Daniel's brother, J. T. J. Culpepper, was listed as a "1st sergeant" on the same roster. On p. 55, Judge Boethel noted: As military units for service in the Confederate army were recruited, the personnel of Searcy's and Malone's companies were sorely depleted and eventually the units were disbanded to be superceded by other state service units. On January 25, 1863, the Lavaca County unit, [was] designated as Company C, 24th Regiment, Texas State Troops....
     "D. F. Culpepper, Private" age 37, born Georgia, with a "Sweet Home" TX post office was listed in this reorganized company.
     Daniel's first wife apparently died just before or during the Civil War and his daughters appear to have been taken in by his parents. After the war, Daniel F. Culpepper was listed with his daughters, Mattie and Mary A., in his father's household in the 1870 census of Lavaca Co., TX. He was listed as a stock raiser. Daniel Culpepper was listed as a farmer with his second wife, "Zilpha," and a young family in the 1880 census of Lavaca Co., TX. Also listed in the household was "Joseph Holloway" an 18 year old step-son born in Alabama. Presumably this was the son of Zilpha by her first marriage. Joseph listed his father as having been born in Georgia and his mother in Alabama. Also listed was an unidentified 21 year old "Gibson Grant" who was recorded as having been born at "sea." Daniel Culpepper remained in Lavaca Co., TX and was noted as a farmer in the 1900 Lavaca Co., TX census. He had been married 27 years to his second wife "Zelphia." Daughters "Sinthia" and "Winnie" were noted living with them. John H. Henderson born Jun 1848 in Maryland was also listed in the household and has not been identified. Mrs. Travis (Jacqueline Lorenz) McClinton located the following Lavaca Co., TX deed (Book 40 p. 574-575), in which (D. F. Culpepper deeded land to the children of his brother, J. T. J.

Biography* From Mt. Olive Cemetery, Lavaca Co., TX: _________________________Mary Ann Culpepper _________________________1839 - 1861
      It has been difficult to establish how many children of Mary Ann had before her death. Unfortunately the census records can not be relied on to sort out the problem. Two girls can be establised as probable children of Mary Ann based on census records. Martha was listed with her parents in the 1860 census and Mary Ann was listed with Martha and her father in the 1870 census living in the Francis G. Culpepper household. Culpepper Heritage Association records (based on records collected by Dr. Charles L. Culpepper, Sr.) list two additional children of Daniel during the time period when Mary Ann would have been alive: William R. Culpepper (19 Sep 1856-1857) and James M. Culpepper (11 May 1859-1861). According to p. 52 of Lavaca Co., TX - Cemetery Records Vol. I by Sammy Tise, the following graves are found together in the Mt. Olive Cemetery: CULPEPPER, W. R.________1857_____1867 CULPEPPER, J. N.________1860_____1861_____Could be 1867 CULPEPPER, Mary Ann_____1839_____1861 CULPEPPER, A.___________1861_____1864 CULPEPPER, Maggie_______1875_____1878
      Mary Ann Culpepper was Mary Ann Guthrie, Daniel F. Culpepper's first wife and Maggie was Daniel F. Culpepper's daughter by his second wife. The close proximity of the other three graves to Mary Ann's and the dates of the children's births would suggest that they were in fact her children. Since full dates were not given on the tombstones, it is possible that the stones were placed later and dates were based on memory and it appears that the stones have weathered and some of the dates are difficult to read. However, based on the Culpepper Heritage Association records, the infant James M. Culpepper should have shown up in the Daniel F. Culpepper household in the 1860 census. As noted, although the family was listed twice in the 1860 census, James was not listed. But the fact that the family was listed TWICE suggests that the census record is flawed. Could the three graves have been for children of another Culpepper brother? Vashti (Harbour) Culpepper, the wife of Daniel's brother, William R. Culpepper, is believed to have died by Nov 1856 since she was not mentioned in the estate papers of her father. But if she was the mother of W. R. Culpepper it would seem natural that her child would have been found near her and she has not been found in this cemetery. Also, if Daniel's brother, William R. Culpepper, was the father of the child then the name on the tombstone should have indicated that this was the grave of W. R. Culpepper, JR. Since William did not remarry until 1861, He was presumably not the father of the other children. Daniel's brother, James L. Culpepper, did not marry until Dec 1856 and so presumably was not the father of W. R. Culpepper. James' first wife had apparently died by 1860 since he remarried Jan 1860. If James M. Culpepper was a child of James L. Culpepper it seems likely that the child would have been buried near his mother and Eliza Jane (Harbour) Culpepper's grave has not been found in the Mt. Olive Cemetery. Also James and his second wife, Margaret, were noted in the 1860 census and no children were listed in the household. Descendants have preserved the birth records of the children of James and Margaret and "A. Culpepper" was not listed as one of their children. This brings us back to the graves of the three children by Mary Ann (Guthrie) Culpepper. Although there is no positive evidence that they were Mary Ann's children the dates of birth and the proximity of the graves suggest that they were.
      Since Mary Ann (Guthrie) Culpepper's youngest child, Mary Ann, was not supposed to have been born until March of 1862, either the death date of the mother or the date of the birth of the child is in error. Since the stones appear to have been added at at later date and based on memory, the birth date of her youngest child is probably a more reliable indicator of when Mary Ann may have died.

Burial*circa 23 May 1904 Her body was interred circa 23 May 1904 at Ingleside Cemetery, Hondo, Medina Co., Texas
Biography* Mrs. James L. (Vivian Hastings) Culpepper wrote 24 Sep 1978 that D. F. Culpepper's second wife was "Mrs. Zilpha Reeder (Holloway) a widow...." The marriage record lists her as Mrs. Zilpha L. Holloway. In the 1900 census, she was listed as having had seven children three of whom were still living. The seventh child was apparently her son, Joseph Holloway, who was listed in the 1880 census. This is believed to be the "J. W. Holloway" who was listed as executor of Daniel F. Culpepper's estate in 1901 and, if this is correct, Zilpha would have had four children living in 1900. Mrs. James L. (Vivian Hastings) Culpepper reported in 24 Sep 1978 letter that there is a tombstone in the Mt. Olive Cemetery for "Maggie Culpepper 1875-1878." Mrs. Travis (Jacqueline Lorenz) McClinton recorded the dates as "1875-1875." It has been suggested that this was a child of Daniel and Zilpha. If so, in the 1900 census, Zilpha was not counting her son by her first marriage and the seven children born of whom three were still living would have been correct. In a 2 Nov 1994 letter Mrs. C. M. (Pat Burgin) Lee wrote: According to Marie [Burgin, a granddaughter of Daniel and Zilpha] there was also a girl, Maggie Culpepper. I'm guessing the 1875-1878 shown in cemetery records is the child. Other members of that family evidently are buried near.

Biography*  The "BIBLE FAMILY RECORD OF FRANCIS G. & EGLINTINE CULPEPPER" recorded J. T. J. Culpepper's birth (the day of birth was difficult to read and might be 1st): _________________________John T. J. Culpepper _________________________was Born Aug 9th 1827 However there is a notation after the record of J. T. J. Culpepper's death which reads "He was born June." In the 1900 census, he was listed as having been born Aug 1827. His tombstone in Mt. Olive Cem. lists his birth as August 8th, 1827.
      On p. 60 of On The Headwaters of the Lavaca and the Navidad Paul C. Boethel notes: John Thomas Jefferson Culpepper, born August 9, 1827 in Monroe County, Georgia, was the second son of Francis G. Culpepper and Eglantine Langley. The elder Culpepper with wife and thirteen children left Randolph [Chambers in 1840 census] County, Alabama, in 1846 and moved to Fayette [Lafayette in 1850 census] County, Mississippi, where they remained until 1851, when they moved on to Texas by way of Vicksburg and northern Louisiana. There were a slew of Culpeppers and many others in the party. John T. J. Culpepper and his older brother had come to Texas in 1849, and settled near the Sweet Home settlement. A second brother, William, born March 11, 1829, also settled in the area, and donated a tract of six acres for the Mt. Olive School and the Primitive Baptist Church. John T. J. Culpepper in 1877 led the county in two livestock classifications: (a) the largest number of horses, 86; and (b) the largest number of sheep, 2500.
      In the 1860 Hallettsville, Lavaca Co., AL census, "John Culpeper" was listed with his wife and young family. He was listed as having real estate valued at $1,500 and personal property valued at $5,000. Mrs. Travis (Jacqueline Lorenz) McClinton noted on the Shadrack Guthrie descendant list that John Thomas Jefferson was "1st sgt. Frederick J. Melone's Company Conf. Army 6 Aug 1861 for 12 months." On p. 54 of On The Headwaters of the Lavaca and the Navidad Paul C. Boethel includes: Muster roll of [Captain] Frederick J. Malone's Company, organized at Sweet Home, August 6, 1861. Enlistment for state service for twelve months. Note on roll: "No arms of an improved style."
      Included on the roster were: __________J. T. J. Culpepper, 1st sergeant __________D. F. Culpepper, private __________J. L. Culpepper, private __________W. R. Culpepper, private
      On p. 55 of On The Headwaters of the Lavaca and the Navidad Paul C. Boethel noted As military units for service in the Confederate army were recruited, the personnel of Searcy's and Malone's companies were sorely depleted and eventually the units were disbanded to be superseded by other state service units.
      Mrs. C. V. (Lois Anderson) Culpepper wrote 1 Jul 1978: John T. Jeff Culpepper - son of F. G. C. Served with the Terry Rangers - 2nd Sgt Co. D. 2nd Texas Cavalry
      The following is from pp. 145-154 of Col. Amasa Turner the Gentleman from Lavaca written by Judge Paul C. Boethel and published in 1963: TERRY'S TEXAS RANGERS Of the one thousand one hundred seventy men in the regiment, all but six were Texans; forty-seven were from Lavaca County.... Probably no other regiment on either side in the war had as many engagements with the enemy as the 8th Texas Cavalry, for it was constantly employed in scouting assignments, raids, charges, and in covering retreats. All told, it participated in thirty-eight general engagements, one hundred sixty skirmishes as a regiment, and three hundred seventy skirmishes as parts of a command, battalion, companies and squads. It was out of service but twenty-one days. The total killed, or died of exposure, disease and wounds, seven hundred thirty-six; total wounded in battle, eight hundred sixty. It served as an independent command, attached to brigades and armies; being essentially a cavalry unit, it operated over a considerable area, seeing service principally in Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, and North Carolina. It had no appreciable effect on the war, its numbers were too small for that, but it was a factor in two major battles: at Shiloh, where it checked the pursuit of the enemy, and at Bentonville, North Carolina, where it repulsed an attack, which, had it succeeded, would have been a disaster to the Confederate Army. The day preceding the surrender of the army at Jonesboro, April 28, 1865, two hundred forty-eight men answered the roll call for duty.... The roster of the Rangers from Lavaca County was as follows: 1. Sgt. J. T. J. Culpepper 2. Corp. A. G. Ledbetter 3. Corp. B. E. Joiner 4. Corp. L. Watson 5. J. H. Andrews 6. P. H. Arnold 7. T. J. Barker 8. A. M. Beall 9. J. K. P. Blackburn 10. Robert Campbell 11. Volney R. Cook 12. C. M. Dunneway 13. J. (Jake) R. Flewellyn 14. Roderick Gellhorn 15. S. A. Green 16. Charles H. Howard 17. Jno. P. Humphrey 18. W. H. Harris 19. Wm. Jackson 20. A. Jones 21. R. H. Jones 22. C. B. Jones 23. Ed. Kaylor (Koehler) 24. R. Kuykendall 25. R. P. Kirk 26. B. P. Lewis 27. Fritz Lindenberg 28. Henry C. Middlebrook 29. James McKinney 30. D. A. McGonagil 31. S. B. Noble 32. D. C. Payne 33. S. C. Patton 34. A. Ponton 35. R. H. Ray 36. N. C. Reeves 37. W. B. Reeves 38. W. B. Simons 39. W. (Bill) B. Simpson 40. A. G. Seals 41. Hy. Thigpen 42. S. G. Thigpen 43. George Q. Turner 44. B. R. Watson 45. W. T. Ware 46. James Woodley 47. Wm. Wroe Of the Rangers... the remainder, or thirty-six men, were members of Company F, under Captain Louis M. Strobel, and were recruited at La Grange. With the exception of Dunneway, who was a recruit added later, the Rangers from Lavaca County were mustered into service in September, 1861, to serve for the duration of the war. The recruits from Lavaca County came principally from two settlements, Sweet Home and Prairie Point. Sweet Home was a settlement on Mustang Creek in the Midwestern part of the county about eight miles southwest of the town of Hallettsville, and was founded by the Yorks, Wests, McCutcheons, Allens, Bennetts, and Ledbetters, prominent stock raisers and freighters. The settlement was augmented in the early '50s by a colony from Georgia led by F. G. Culpepper and Dr. A. G. Patton. James McKinney, son of John McKinney, sheriff, 1852-56, was a horse-wrangler of note, and though he is listed as recruited from Karnes County, he worked as a "cow-hunter" for the stockmen of Sweet Home, until he joined the Texas Rangers at San Antonio. Culpepper, Patton, Ledbetter, McGonagill, Noble and Middlebrook were all from families settled there.... The Regiment mobilized at Houston. Company F, with its contingent of Lavaca County recruits, was the first to arrive. The regiment encamped about the city, where they, particularly Strobel's Company, "kept the town in a continued bustle with their daring feats of horsemanship...." Their armament also impressed the people, "every man has a six-shooter and bowie knife as well as a rifle or a double-barrel shotgun slung on the saddle...." Adventure, and in many instances death, was to be the lot of the recruits, and it began en route. At New Iberia, Louisiana, there was a gap of a hundred miles not spanned by a railroad. The men, not mounted, started on foot, marched for a day, then began to impress horses into service. It was every man for himself: pick any horse the could be found, rope and break him.... At New Orleans, they were sent by way to Nashville to Bowling Green, Kentucky, in box cars used to ship cattle. Here they joined the army General Albert Sidney Johnston was assembling for the defense of the frontier. While there and at Nashville, an epidemic of measles and diarrhea struck the regiment and took a heavy toll.... The first duty assigned to the regiment was to patrol and picket the area from Bowling Green north as far as Woodsonville on the Green River. While on reconnaissance near the river, December 17th, they encountered the enemy on its march toward Bowling Green. Here, the regiment made the first of its famous charges--"Nothing could exceed the brilliancy and daring of that impetuous charge, our shotguns threw up a blaze of fire and shot almost in their faces...." The unit continued its scouting, picketing, and patrolling in the area until February, 1862. After the fall of Fort Donelson, General Johnston abandoned Kentucky and established his base of operations in Tennessee. In this operation, the Rangers witnessed and covered the evacuation of Bowling Green, and soon thereafter were dispatched to Charlotte to cover the retreat of the infantry units escaping from Fort Donelson. Following this, the regiment, together with other cavalry units, was sent to Murfreesboro, Tennessee, to watch the movements of the enemy and intercept them if they moved southward.... In March, the cavalry units at Murfreesboro broke camp and joined the army at Corinth, Mississippi. On April 6th, the regiment participated in the Battle of Shiloh, one of the bloodiest engagements of the war. Twice it was dismounted to aid the infantry in holding the lines. On the 8th, they patrolled behind the army, acting as a rear guard on the retreat from Corinth. Late in the evening, the enemy's infantry pressed them so closely a stand was inevitable; it fell to the lot of the Rangers. In another impetuous charge, the enemy was driven back, their numbers falling like a "large covey of quail bunched on the ground, shot into with a load of birdshot." In this engagement, Company F mustered sixty-five men, and after three days of fighting, only fourteen men and the captain answered the roll. Aside from the casualties, the others were off on some duty, picketing and scouting where needed. Wounded were Culpepper, Letbetter, and Andrews.... Sergeant Culpepper, wounded at Shiloh, was wounded again in '63; this time in eastern Tennessee. In '65, he was still at it; it that year, he was captured but escaped and returned to duty....
      John T. Culpepper returned to Lavaca Co., TX after the war and was listed as a farmer in the 1870 census with his first wife, Cynthia, and young family. He was listed with real estate valued at $3,000 and personal property valued at $3,000. He was again listed with his first wife and younger children in the 1880 census of Lavaca Co., TX. Finally, in the 1900 census of Lavaca Co., TX, Thomas J. Culpepper was listed with his second wife and younger children. Mrs. R. M. (Anne Culpepper) Hunt wrote 27 Oct 1978: The pictures [of Lewis P. and George W. Culpepper] you sent remind me very much of my grandfather, Francis Gillespie Culpepper. I was 12 years old when I last saw him, in 1902 when we moved from Lavaca Co. Tx. My father, John Thomas Jefferson C. died Aug. 1st of that year, at the age of 75.... I remember my grandfather's looks, also my father and his brothers, they all had features much like the picture you sent of Geo. Washington Culpepper & Lewis Peek C. Grandpa was clean shaven, but his sons all wore beards. My father, J. T. J. was second son - he was a farmer & stockman, he sold out in Lavaca Co. in July of 1902 & bought land in Wilson Co. Tx. 35 or 40 miles south of San Antonio Tx. was sick when he returned to our home in Lavaca & never recovered, died Aug. 1st & was buried at old Mt. Olive Cemetery....
      John's death was also recorded in the Francis G. Culpepper Family Bible: _________________________John T. J. Culpepper _________________________Departed this life _________________________August 1st 1902
      Mrs. Travis (Jacqueline Lorenz) McClinton recorded the following from his tombstone in Mt. Olive Cemetery, Lavaca Co., TX: _________________________J. T. J. Culpepper _________________________Aug 8, 1827 _________________________Aug 1, 1902
      Dr. Charles L. Culpepper, Sr. wrote 4 Jul 1978: My father John Thomas Jefferson Culpepper, second son of F. G. Culpepper, was married twice. His first wife had 13 children... , and my mother had eight children.

Biography* A "BIBLE FAMILY RECORD OF FRANCIS G. & EGLINTINE CULPEPPER" recorded William's birth (again the day was difficult to read it appears to be a 10 with the 0 written over by a 1: _________________________William R. Culpepper _________________________Born March 11th 1829
     William Culpeper was listed in the 1860 census of Hallettsville, Lavaca Co., TX. His first wife, Vashti Harbour, is believed to have died before 1857 and there is no record of another marriage until 1861 so the 26 year old "Mary Culpeper" born in Georgia who was listed with William in the 1860 census has not been identified. William had real estate valued at $1,000 and personal property valued at $300.
     On p. 54 of On the Headwaters of the Lavaca and the Navidad Paul C. Boethel notes "W. R. Culpepper, private" on the: Muster roll of Frederick J. Malone's Company, organized at Sweet Home, August 6, 1861. Enlistment for state service for twelve months. Note on roll: "No arms of an improved style."
     William's older brother, J. T. J. Culpepper was listed as "1st sergeant" in the same unit. On p. 55, Judge Boethel notes: As military units for service in the Confederate army were recruited, the personnel of Searcy's and Malone's companies were sorely depleted and eventually the units were disbanded to be superceded by other state service units.
     Apparently William later served in Company B, Hardeman's TX Cavalry. On p. 60, Judge Boethel notes: William, born March 11, 1829, also settled in the area [near Sweet Home], and donated a tract of six acres for the Mt. Olive School and the Primitive Baptist Church.
     William Culpepper returned home after the war and was listed as a farmer in the 1870 census of Lavaca Co., TX with his second wife, Julia, and young family. They were living next door to William's father, Frank Culpepper. William had real estate valued at $500 and personal property valued as $1,500. He remained in Lavaco Co., TX at least until 1900 where he was noted with his second wife and younger children in 1880 and 1900 census records. Mrs. R. M. (Anne Culpepper) Hunt wrote 27 Oct 1978 that "Uncle William moved to Central Tx. about 1900...." Presumably the family moved to Bosque Co., TX where the widowed, Julia Culpepper, was noted (pct. 3 ED 7 sheet 9) with her daughter, Mattie, in 1910 census records.

Vashti Harbour

Female, #32391, (circa 1839 - circa 1856)
Father*Isaiah Harbour (18 Apr 1800 - 20 Jun 1856)
Mother*Mary Jincy Miller (24 Feb 1807 - 19 Dec 1882)
Birth*circa 1839 Vashti was born at Georgia circa 1839.1 
Marriage*20 Dec 1855 She married William R. Culpepper at Lavaca Co., Texas, on 20 Dec 1855.2 
Married Name20 Dec 1855  As of 20 Dec 1855, her married name was Culpepper. 
Death*circa 1856 She died at Lavaca Co., Texas, circa 1856.3 
Biography* According to p. 99 of The Harbours in America by Louis J. Williams, Vashti is believed to have died before 24 Nov 1856 since she was not mentioned in her father's estate settlement. Mrs. T. D. (Patty Bennett) McGinty speculated in a 25 Jul 1988 letter that she died in childbirth. Culpepper Heritage Association records list a child "Nancy E." born 5 Jul 1857 in Lavaca Co., TX but no source is given. The child was not noted in the 1860 census and no cemetery record has been found for the child. Culpepper Heritage Association records note: "probably died at birth with mother." If Vashti in fact died in childbirth in 1857 then why wasn't she mentioned in her father's estate settlement?

      The "BIBLE FAMILY RECORD OF FRANCIS G. & EGLINTINE CULPEPPER" listed Martha's birth: _________________________Martha A. E. Culpepper _________________________was Born Feb 29 - 1832
      Martha's parents were noted in the 1830 census records of Talbot, Co., GA and this is where she is presumed to have been born. However, according to an article about Francis Gillespie Culpepper, in the 2 Feb 1898 Shiner Gazette he moved family to Albama in 1834 and this is where Martha would have spent her childhood. Again according to the Shiner Gazette article, Francis G. Culpepper moved his family to Lafayette Co., MS in 1846. Martha is noted in the 1850 census of Lafayette Co., MS living with her parents. Martha accompanied the Francis G. Culpepper family to Lavaca Co., TX and it is there that she married her first husband, William D. Guthrie in 1853. Martha was noted living with William Guthrie in 1860 Lavaca Co., TX census records.
      After the death of her first husband, Martha married again. Martha's second marriage was recorded in the S. M. Guthrie, Sr. Family Bible: ____________This Certifies ___________That the Rite of ____________HOLY MATRIMONY ________was celebrated between S._M._Guthrie___________ of Sweet Home and Martha A. E. Guthrie of Sweet Home on _July 2nd 1861_______ at Sweet Home by _Rev. Covey__________
      Martha Annie Elizabeth was noted with her second husband, Marion Guthrie, and children in 1870, 1880 and 1900 Lavaca Co., TX census records. Some time after the 1900 census, Martha and her husband apparently moved to Baylor Co., TX and they were noted living there in 1910 census records. Martha and S. M. Guthrie were listed as having been married 48 years and Martha was listed as having had seven children, all of whom were still living in 1910. Only six have been accounted for. Keith Guthrie wrote 1 Dec 1990: Her son, William F. Guthrie married Kate (Molly) Edgar and they left Goliad County due to boll worms (cotton and moved to Wichita County [TX]. Martha Ann followed them in her retiring years and is buried in Beaver Creek Cemetery near the farm that William F. worked.
      Mrs. Travis (Jacqueline Lorenz) McClinton noted on a Shadrack Guthrie descendant list that "some of her grandchildren called her Domma Dussie."

Father*Shadrach Guthrie (1772 - a 1850)
Mother*Malinda Badley (c 1776 - )
Birth*28 Oct 1804 Orin was born at Kentucky on 28 Oct 1804. 
Employment* Orin's occupation: Baptist minister. 
Marriage*23 Jan 1829 He married Eliza Jane Davis at Hardeman Co., Tennessee, on 23 Jan 1829 at age 24.

Death*9 Oct 1854 He died at Lavaca Co., Texas, on 9 Oct 1854 at age 49. 
Burial* His body was interred at Mount Olive Cemetery, Lavaca Co., Texas.1 
Biography* Keith Guthrie wrote Feb 1991: Orin left a number of tracks in Kentucky and Tennessee. He was evidently born around 1804 in Kentucky. He was a land owner and evidently a rancher. On January 20, 1824 he took out a license to marry Nancy Boyd in Hardeman County, Tennessee. No further record exists of Nancy and it is thought that she might have died in childbirth. On January 23, 1829 Orin married Eliza Davis, the daughter of Daniel Davis (the Davis clan goes way back into American Revolution days) who was a land owner, rancher and raised blooded horses.... Somewhere along the line Orin became a practicing Primitive Baptist preacher. The only thing that we have been able to find about him from the time he got married until arriving in Texas in the mid to late 1840's was an entry in a Primitive Baptist church register. No date but by deductions it appears to be in the early 1840's. Family legends tell that when the Guthries, accompanied by several other families who they may have been traveling with for years, that Eliza rode a horse with one of the children on her lap all the way. Orin is listed as the minister on several Guthrie marriage licenses in 1848. (Orin is thought to have had at least four brothers. William E. is well documented.) Orin bought land first from Daniel Davis (part that was the headright of John Davis) and others until we had a modest acreage....
      On p. 60 of On The Headwaters of the Lavaca and the Navidad Paul C. Boethel noted: Another Guthrie in the Sweet Home vivinity whose family history is mixed also with the Culpeppers was that of Orin Guthrie. Guthrie, a Primitive Baptist minister, and wife, Eliza Davis, were among the first colonists of DeWitt's settlement and it is said the wife rode horseback with a child in her lap most of the way from Kentucky. Their first house was on the Guadalupe, but the following the sacking of Gonzales in 1836, they settled on the Upper Lavaca. There they lived until the death of Guthrie. Besides a son, William D., four daughters survived him, all of whom married men prominent in the history of Sweet Home. Cynthia, who married John Thomas Jefferson Culpepper; Mary Ann, who married J. F. Culpepper; Jane, who married Westly F. Vick; Eliza Ann, who married William Vick. The widow Guthrie married John McKinney, the high sheriff of Lavaca County, in 1854.
      Mrs. James L. (Vivian Hastings) Culpepper wrote in a 13 Apr 1978 letter: William Guthrie (born 1831) was the son of the Primitive Baptist pastor, Oren Guthrie and wife Eliza who came from Kentucky to DeWitt settlement, with some of the early colonists up near Gonzales on the Guadalupe River. Preacher Guthrie died in 1854, soon after he was chosen pastor of the Mt. Olive Church and is buried in the cemetery there.
      Vivian recorded the following tombstone in the Mt. Olive Cemetery, Lavaca Co., TX: (Rev.) Oren Guthrie 28 Oct. 1804 9 Oct. 1854
      The following record is from p. 52 of Lavaca Co., TX - Cemetery Records Vol. I by Sammy Tise: GUTHRIE, Rev. Orin_____28_Oct 1834 [corrected to 1804 in Vol. II]_____9 Oct 1854.
