Biography*  Elam Culpepper spent his childhood in Coweta Co., GA. He then moved with his parents to Gordon Co., GA where he met and married Phalba Kay. He is next found with his young family in Meriwether Co., GA where he apparently was called to the ministry. Rev. Elam Culpepper was listed (56-1) in the 1900 census of Gordon Co., GA with his wife and younger children. He was listed as having been born Sep 1851 in Georgia. In the 1910 census of Clayton County, GA, a 59 year old Elam was listed (10-19) with his wife and daughter, Ludie and son, Joseph. The following obituary comes from the Calhoun Times , Gordon Co, GA, 12 Dec 1935: REV. E. CULPEPPER DIES DECEMBER 5 -- Well Known Curryville Minister Passes at Hospital in Rome -- Rev. E. Culpepper, one of Georgia's most able and beloved Baptist ministers, passed away at a Rome hospital after a week's illness of pneumonia on December 5. For several years he had been in declining health. Mr. Culpepper was the son of Charles William Culpepper and Mary Jane English. He was born September 14, 1851, at Haralson, Coweta County, GA. His education was obtained at Mercer University. After entering the ministry at the age of 29, he held pastorates in the following cities: Jonesboro, McDonough, Locust Grove, Fairburn, Hogansville, Senoia, Ashburn, First Church of Cordele, and Fifth Avenue, of Rome. When his health failed about 30 years ago, he moved to his country home near Curryville and served churches in Gordon and Floyd counties.... Hundreds of friends of the deceased were in attendance at the funeral service and the interment which followed at West Union cemetery, amid a wealth of floral offerings seldom equalled.

      In a 5 Nov 1978 letter, Mrs. W. B. (M. Louise Culpepper) Broach, a niece, wrote about Rev. Elam Culpepper: He was a legend in his own time, a Godly fanatic, if you please. He had a fixation about what he called "God's creatures." He did not believe in killing anything not even a snake. He refused to eat any meat, anything that had to be killed. His land was posted with "no hunting" signs and he never preached a sermon that he did not plead with the men to be kind to their horses. He especially talked to the young men about running their horses on the weekends when they had been plowing with them all the week. Of course, his horses were not exercised enough and were over fed but they had beautiful coats that shone like satin. When there got to be too many cats around the barns, he would get a bucket of water, get down on his knees and pray over the little kittens before he drowned them. The strange thing about all this was that he was the best loved and most highly respected man in the whole country. Even the young men smiled over his fixation about horses and treated him with the utmost respect and I'm sure some of them at least followed his advice.... Before I was born he had a church in Rome, my parents lived in the pastorium with him and kept house for him. That was over 80 years ago, but when they held a communion service, he invited all who repented of their sins and meant to lead a new life to come to the Lord's table. That was simply unheard of at that time, and even now at the First Baptist Church here, they still have closed communion. You would think that the deacons would have fired him, and the fact that they did not shows how much they loved him. When he was out making pastoral calls, he did not only call on his members but called at every house on the block. He also went to every house where there was illness, death or any trouble. People all but worshipped him and that included his own children. They called him "Father" and showed him love and respect. His house was a two-storied frame house with many porches [on land he bought next to his father's farm in Gordon County, almost in sight of his father's old home place. Both of these homes have since burned to the ground in separate fires.] and by the time I was 12 years old, Cousin Charles [Emory Culpepper] had had all those porches glassed in, had put in central heat and electric lights (way before Rural Electrification). My uncle was retired from city churches and just preached around in the country as invited. He was not a big, robust man and he was running his father's old mill on the creek. Cousin Charlie had the latest mill machinery installed for him and he enjoyed grinding corn for his neighbors as long as he lived. He was in his 80's when he died.

      According to Coweta Chronicles (255) Rev. Elam Culpepper as a pastor of White Oak Grove Baptist and (277) E. Culpepper as the 11th pastor at Holly Springs Baptist.

      James Burie Clegg wrote 22 Nov 1978 that he tried to take a picture of the foundation of the old mill on the creek and added "I couldn't get near enough to it, as I had to take it from a bridge (built by the Culpeppers) about 40 yards away." James Burie Clegg wrote 15 Nov 1978 about a visit to the West Union Baptist Church Cemetery: On the road from Calhoun to West Union, which is about 8 or 10 miles out to the west of Calhoun [near the Curryville Community?]. I stopped at a service station-stor at a crossroad to buy gas. The station is owned by an old Negro, 71 years old. He knew several of the Culpeppers and told me "all are gone, now." He said the W. U. Baptist Church allowed his mother to join. I presume Rev. Elam Culpepper was pastor of that church, which is a fairly large white, wooden structure.... Incidentally, there is a "Culpepper Road" near the church. It is a fairly well maintained dirt road. I'm sure it was named for the Culpeppers who settled out there.

      In a 22 Nov 1978 letter, James Burie Clegg added: On the front of a pretty brick church, New Hope Baptist, about two miles away [from West Union Baptist Church or Johnston Chapel?] is a plaque with only one name on it - Rev. Elam Culpepper.

The following is from a manuscript by Kathryn English Culpepper, as transcribed by Gayle L. Poole:

Elam was a Baptist Minister, serving in different churches over Georgia, two of which were at Macon and the Fifth Avenue Baptist Church in Rome.

He was a gentle, kind, Godly man, and his younger years, was prominent in the Southern Baptist Convention. He was a handsome man, and wore gray "away" coat (with long tails). He was much loved all over the country, and after his retirement, was asked to hold meetings at the churches he had served, which he continued to do until ill health prevented. He never preached a sermon that he did not admonish the congregation to be kind to their animals, especially horses and mules. He, himself, owned beautiful black horse named Bob. Bob was a very special animal to him, and always privileged, at any time, anywhere, to stop along the road to rest and crop the grass on the side of the road.

Elam was a vegetarian because he could not stand the thought of eating the meat of any animal. He said that when he looked at the meat he could vision the animal alive and well. He would even step over a bug in the road, to him, animals were
God's creatures and not to be harmed.

He preached in many country churches near to him, and there is a plaque on the front of the Rosedale Baptist Church, where he was the minister, at one time. This a new building, donated by the Charles E. Culpepper Foundation, hence the plague.

Sarah Elizabeth was known to everyone as "Miss Sally Bit, " and was never called anything else. She was never married, and was always at the beck and call of any of the family who needed her help. All children adored her, She was always ready to stop what she was doing to help them find something lost, or tell them things they loved to hear. She was quiet - mannered and selfless. "Neat as a Pin". She always lived with Lula and Dr. Gray after her mother died. Her hobby was tatting. She could always make delicious salt-raising bread, even made her own yeast from Irish potato peelings. Never cross, always calm and patient.

WARNER CULPEPPER KILLED IN COAST LINE WRECK --
Former Moultrie Man With Six Others Lose Their Lives When the Dixie Flyer Plunges through Trestle at Alapaha River. Others Injured Fatally.
     The south bound "Dixie Flyer" plunged through the trestle at Alapaha River, twenty-three miles south of Tifton on the Atlantic Coastline Saturday morning at four o'clock. Five cars were demolished, several passengers were killed outright, a number were injured, some of them fatally. Among the dead who had been taken out at eleven o'clock was Warner Culpepper, lumberman, former Moultrie citizen and father of Mrs. C. B. Patterson of this city. The work of taking out the dead and wounded was in progress all the morning. Special trains took surgeons to the scene of the wreck and other trains carried the injured to the road's hospital at Waycross. It was train 95 that wrecked. This train passes Tifton after three o'clock. It was reported from Tifton to the Observer that the wreck was caused by a broken axle on the engine.

     A copy of the funeral notice, preserved by Mrs. F. D. (Betty Lee Collins) Hale, is from The Daily Observer of Moultrie, GA Monday, 27 Mar 1911:

MANY ATTEND FUNERAL SERVICES
     The remains of Warner Culpepper of Tifton, who lost his life in the wreck of the Dixie Flyer Saturday morning, were brought to Moultrie Sunday and laid to rest in the Moultrie Cemetery. The body was brought down on the morning train, accompanied by members of the family and close friends and the deacons of the Tifton Baptist Church who acted as pall bearers. The body lay at the home of Mr. and Mrs. C. B. Patterson, on Gay Street, until the afternoon. The funeral services were held at the First Baptist Church at 3:00 in the afternoon, conducted by Rev. J. G. Venable, pastor of the Presbyterian Church, assisted by Rev. J. G. Harrison of Macon, who was here to fill the Baptist pulpit in the absence of pastor Cree. The church was filled with sympathetic friends of the family of the deceased and the service was a sad one. A long procession followed the remains to the cemetery, though the weather was very threatening, and the last sad rites were performed at the grave by Rev. Venable. All during the day the grief stricken family received sympathizing friends at the Patterson home and the floral offering, probably the most beautiful ever witnessed here on such an occasion, attested further to the esteem in which Mr. Culpepper was held here. the family remained over in Moultrie Sunday night.

The following is from a manuscript by Kathryn English Culpepper, as transcribed by Gayle L. Poole:

[Warner was] An energetic, good-natured man. Short and stocky, with light blue, piercing eyes, His family and friends loved him.

Biography* Osbit was known as "Obbie." In a 27 Sep 1978 letter Mrs. W. B. (M. Louise Culpepper) Broach noted that although older brother Elam had become a Baptist minister, Osbit had become a Methodist minister. In a 5 Nov 1978 letter Mrs. Broach noted this had not been a happy decision for younger members of the family:
.
"Remember this is right after the Civil War and things were hard. Our grandfather had an illness that left him an invalid and Osbit and my Uncle Joel who was about 12 yrs. old and my father, Will, who was about 10 were the only ones left at home to work the farm. Well, Osbit took off for the West and left the little boys to work the farm. You can be sure that did not endear him to the other members of the family. For years, they never heard anything of him but he finally got sick and was in a dying condition, and his wife wrote the family. By that time, my father ran a men's clothing store here in Rome and he furnished the suit of clothes to bury him in and Uncle Joel went and took the money from them both to pay for the funeral and he stayed there with the family until it was all over."
.
In a Nov 27, 1978 letter, Mrs. Broach wrote that she thought that Osbit had a daughter named Mary but that she did not know the names of his sons.

The following is from a manuscript by Kathryn English Culpepper, as transcribed by Gayle L. Poole:

[Osbit] Left home as a young man and settled in Oklahoma. He was a local Methodist Minister. He never came back to Georgia (even on a visit), and very little in known of him as he very seldom wrote to the family. He had some children, but only one of them ever wrote to the Aunts. Her name was Mary. There were, at least, two boys, but have no names.

The following is from a manuscript by Kathryn English Culpepper, as transcribed by Gayle L. Poole:

Joel: Was a jovial, witty man. His nieces and nephews called him "Uncle Buddy", and followed him all over the farm. He was adept at shoeing the farm animals which fascinated the children who loved to the sparks when he hammered the red-hot shoes, and they loved to watch as he worked the bellows.

All the young women in the neighborhood vied with one another for his attentions and he was capable of sidestepping their advances without making them mad.

In his later years, he moved to Calhoun, GA (about 8 miles away from the Farm). He worked in the office of a large warehouse. That is where he met and married Miss Maggie Addington. They had no children.

Biography* Mrs. W. B. (M. Louise Culpepper) Broach 22 Aug 1978 wrote that her father was born 7 Jul 1868 and in fact a 1 year old "Millen" was recorded in the Charles W. Culpepper household in the 1870 census. But in the 1900 census what appears to be William was recorded with a May 1874 birth date. This must be a copy error since a 41 year old "William Culpepper" born in Georgia was recorded (p. 66, family 6) with his wife and young family in the 1910 census of Rome, Floyd Co., GA. In a 5 Nov 1978 letter Mrs. W. B. (M. Louise Culpepper) Broach added that after the older children had left home, her father, William Henry Culpepper, and his older brother, Joel, were left to do the farming for their father: Remember this is right after the Civil War and things were hard. Our grandfather had an illness that left him an invalid and Osbit and my Uncle Joel who was about 12 yrs. old and my father, Will, who was about 10 were the only ones left at home to work the farm. Well, Osbit took off for the West and left the little boys to work the farm. William Henry later ran a men's clothing store in Rome, GA.

The following is from a manuscript by Kathryn English Culpepper, as transcribed by Gayle L. Poole:

William Henry was the youngest son. He and his brother, Joel, were left to do what farming they could after their father became a semi-invalid.

When he was eighteen, things on the farm were in bad shape and they were in need of cash, so Will left Joel to do what farming he could, while he came to Rome, GA, to find work, so he could by the necessities, at the farm.

He found a job at a sash, door and blind factory, and every Saturday afternoon he boarded the train at Reeves Station (the little station stands today on the grounds of the Rome Civic Center and is used as a Welcome Center to Visitors in Rome) where Uncle Buddy (our name for Joel) met him with the buggy. He handed his mother his week's wages, leaving himself only enough for train fare and to pay his board for a week. As time went on, he got a job as a salesman in a large "Department Store", "H.L. Lanham and Sons:. Later he made a change to "Hill and Owens", a men's wear store. While there he married and started his family. He was an excellent salesman.

He was an active member of what is now, Trinity United Methodist Church. He served as Steward, Trustee, and was Treasurer of the church for many years. He was honest, devout Christian and brought his children up in the Church, constantly warning them about the pitfalls in life, and how to cope with them.

He was very anxious that each of his children should have a college education. It was "when you go to College, not if you go to College."

Well loved and respected by all who knew him, always ready to lend a hand to those in need.

Later he opened a Men's Clothing Store on his own, with Joel and Oscar Storey as partners, called "Culpepper, Storey and Company". The business thrived until the Depression of 1930, when he lost it. After that he steadily went downhill until his death. It was a shock from which he never recovered.

Biography* The following is from a manuscript by Kathyrn English Culpepper, as transcribed by Gayle L. Poole:

Lula: She, too, helped hold the family together by teaching school. (As did Lenny who worked in a seamstress' establishment). Lula loved to read and entertain us children by reading books like, "Little Women", which she borrowed from the lending library who sent books into the rural communities.

She was loved, and remembered, by her pupils as an excellent teacher.

She always took me to Sunday school, at Johnson's Chapel when I visited in the Country ( I could not wait to get to the country the minute school was out for the Summer).

She drove Hamp, a great Appaloosa, sixteen hands high and always at a certain place in front to the old barn. Hamp began to "act up" pretending to be frightened, but Lula would stand for no foolishness, she would brace herself and jerk the reins which brought Hamp almost to a sitting position. I thought she was great!!!

She married Dr. Gray, the country doctor a few years after her mother's death, and moved, first, to Everett Springs, then to Sugar Valley, and finally spent her last years in the old family home.

Her daughter, Mary, was also a teacher in Floyd County, then in Dalton where She died. She never married.

C.T. (Charles Thomas Gray) left home to enter the Army in World War II. He never returned home, and lives somewhere in Virginia. Was married twice, but had no children.

When Dr, Gray cam courting Aunt Lula, he always bought her something, and once, when I was there he bought a big basket of Concord Grapes ( to this day, my favorite fruit). Aunt Lula called me in and gave me some. What a treat!

All of a sudden, I had an idea that he may take them with him when he left. So when I could get Aunt Lula to herself I whispered . "Will he take the grapes when he goes?"

Of course, she told him, and I could hear the laughter"

He didn't take the grapes, thank goodness.

"Re: Frank Harold Gray's connection to the Gordon County Culpeppers

"Dr. Robert M. Gray married Lula Culpepper on July 11, 1912. At the time of his marriage to Lula, Dr. Gray was the father of two children, Harold F. (10) and Susie (8), presumably from a previous marriage.

"The 1920 and 1930 U.S. Census lists Dr. Gray and Lula as living in Sugar Valley, Gordon County, Georgia, with their two children Charles L. and Mary. There is no listing of Harold or Susie. I do not recall the exact year, but probably in 1933, the Grays moved to the Culpepper Farms, Curryville, Gordon County.

"Charles and Mary Gray were still living at home when the Grays moved to Culpepper Farms. I do not remember Harold living with the Grays when they first moved to the Culpepper Farms. I think he moved back in with his mother and stepmother a years or so later, and I think he was still living with them at the time of Charles E. Culpepper's death in 1940. Harold often worked as a laborer on the farms. I do not know if he worked anywhere else or not."4

Culpepper, the last Culpepper to own the land. The land was bought by Otto Hutchison from "Dorsy" Culpepper before he died. Mr. Williams said he has farmed the land and knows it well.

Biography* W. F. Culpepper was born shortly before the Civil War and based on the census locations of his parents, he was probably born in Coweta Co., GA. He was recorded with his parents in the 1860 census of Coweta Co., GA and with his widowed mother and younger sister in the 1870 census of Senoia, Coweta Co., GA. The family has not yet been found in 1880 census records of Georgia or Alabama. "W. F. Culpepper" was recorded (p. 20, family 6) with his wife and young family in the 1900 census of Coweta Co., GA. He was listed as having been born March 1859 in Georgia. A 51 year old "Wilburn Culpepper" born in Georgia was recorded (p. 35, family 4) with his wife and two daughters in the 1910 census of Senoia, Coweta Co., GA. Mrs. W. C. (Edith Culpepper) Turpin wrote of her father, Dr. Wilbur Fiske Culpepper, in a 27 Nov 1978 letter: [Charles Emory Culpepper] had a drug store in Senoia with him (my father) which burned & Charles left - Later went with Coca-Cola Co and lived for years in N.Y. - many times a millionaire - My father practiced until a week before he died at age 80 - was the kindest, most beloved person - had a degree from Columbia University in N.Y. - was old fashioned "Country Dr" but kept up with modern medicine & was greatly beloved & admired by all - practice covered several counties -
     An article on p. 6B of the Jan 4, 1979 Newnan Times-Herald (Coweta Co, GA) suggested that "'Spirits' Lurk at the Culpepper House" in Senoia, GA and described Dr. Wilbur Fiske Culpepper as "Senoia's longstanding doctor, who occupied the house beginning in 1902."
     For a photograph of the Culpepper House, see http://gen.culpepper.com/archives/ga/coweta.htm#Places
     On p. 12A of The Newnan Times-Herald for Thursday 28 Apr 1983, the Culpepper House was featured in an article "Home Tour Part of Senoia May Day Festival Saturday": The Culpepper House, built [in 1871] by returning Confederate veteran Dr. John Addy, eventually became the house of Dr. William [read Wilbur] Culpepper, physician in the Senoia area for more than five decades. The restored home is a Queen Ann Victorian and is the home of Ms. Mary Brown. Oriental carpets in the foyer and sliding pocket doors in the parlor are complimented by the display of European and Oriental collectables. The gracious formal dining room is accented by a curved, thee-window [three-window?] bay, draped in soft rose folds, glass ware, china and a center chandelier. The home features stain glass windows, curved walls and French Provincial style. Located at the corner of Broad and Morgan Streets, the house was built in 1871 and shows the fine craftsmanship of that time. Admission will be $3.50, to be donated to the Historical Society, and coffee will be served.
     On p. 11B of The Newnan Times-Herald for 25 Apr 1985, the Culpepper house was featured in the article "Senoia Has New Driving Tour Brochure Available": The Culpepper House is among the structures included on the tour.
It features steamboat gothic trim and large rooms on two floors. A small house was built on the lot after the Civil War. Ms. [Mary] Brown said she believes that house was entirely incorporated into the design followed when Dr. Wilbur Culpepper, a Senoia physician for five decades, constructed the Victorian home that is now Ms. Brown's home. Her residence has been mentioned in numerous publications including Southern Homes, Country Living and Metro South magazines.
     According to p. 9B of The Newnan Times-Herald for 22 May 1990, "The Culpepper House in Senoia is one of the listings in "The Christian Bed and Breakfast Directory.... The Victorian home still appears much as it did when it was owned by D[r.] Wilbur Culpepper at the turn of the century."
     The following undated article is from the Los Angeles Times in the American Album section: Southern home offers visitors a doorway to the past Historic Culpepper House has been reincarnated as a small inn. By LEE MAY TIMES STAFF WRITER SENOIA, Ga.--Dr. John Addy, a Confederate soldier, returned from the Civil War and built a family home here in 1871. Now, 120 years later, the place that provided the doctor some much needed R&R (rest and recuperation) offers visitors B&B (bed and breakfast). That transformation puts the home, named the Culpepper House after Dr. Wilbur Culpepper, one of its early owners and redesigners, among a sharply rising number of grand old American houses that have been converted from private family dwellings to historical showplaces with rooms for rent. "It's a new cottage industry," said Mary Finch Hoyt, director of communications for the National Trust for Historic Preservation in Washington, apparently intending no pun. "The whole thing has mushroomed." Of course some bed and breakfasts are nothing more than motels with lace curtains and free doughnuts. The number of hostelries calling themselves B&Bs has quadrupled to at least 20,000 over the last 10 years, many seeking to take advantage of "a rediscovery of the joys of home and hearth," according to the book "Feather Beds & Flapjacks," published last year by the National Trust. But more and more historic properties are opening their doors for another reason: the difficulty and expense in maintaining the old homes. The Culpepper House is one of them. Like many grand old homes across America, the two-story frame dwelling was falling apart back in the 1970s and was nursed back to health amid a burst of preservation energy. Now it is sustained by tourists, much as many great private estates in England now subsist on the income from tours and overnight guests. Before its reclamation, the Culpepper House "was in sad shape," recalls Jack Thompson, president of the Senoia Area Historical Society. Now painted yellow with white gingerbread trim, the room (including four bedrooms) house sits primly at the corner of Broad and Morgan streets in this frozen-in-time village of about 1,000 people. Located 37 miles southwest of Atlanta, the whole town has been listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The stately pace of the town, along with the unassuming charm of the Culpepper House, attracted Mary Brown here from Dallas after she retired as a dietitian at the Veterans Administration medical center. A native Georgian, she bought the house in 1982 and started her B&B the next year because she "thought it would be fun to do." B & B operators, she said, "are saving [historic homes] for future generations." But, "we would not save them unless we put them to some kind of use because they eat money." Brown said: "I'm afraid to add up [the cost of the renovation]." She charges $50 to $60 for a room and breakfast. Brown, who collects everything from carved elephants to miniature bells and calls herself "a true Victorian," said many visitors "feel like they're going back in time." That feeling comes with any visit to an old home that has been restored, and the specific image depends on the part of the country. Throughout this region, the old homes conjure up pictures of a languid Old South, dripping cotton money gathered from slave labor, a South that rose, then tumbled--humbled in the War Between the States and thrown into tumult after it. There are many mansions in the South, including some along the Mississippi River in Louisiana and Mississippi, that evoke images of Tara from "Gone With the Wind" and seem impossibly lavish. Others are more modest, like the Culpepper House. These seem more emotionally accessible than the Taras to people interested in the everyday life of 100 years ago. The Culpepper House raises questions. What was Dr. Addy like? What did Dr. Culpepper think as he sat in his elegant dining room--where Brown now serves breakfast to tourists? Did they drink whiskey with cronies behind the parlor's closed pocket doors? Did they relive the war? Who planted the old oaks outside? The house provides "a great sense of history," said Mary Kalina of Cape Coral, Fla., who, with her husband, Craig, recently stayed at Culpepper House. "We really felt we were in old Georgia." Kalina said her visit inspired a "concern over what it was like to live" during the l9th Century and at the same time gave her a sense of the times. "I'd never get a chance to see some of these old homes" if they were not for rent, she said.

Biography* John James Culpepper was known as "Jack." His parents were recorded in the 1850 census of Chambers Co., AL and this is where John James is presumed to have been born. After this census, probably before 1855, the family moved to a farm near present day Wadley, AL and this is where John James was noted living with his parents in the 1860 and 1870 census records of Randolph Co., AL. After his marriage, John James remained in Randolph County until after 1880 since he was recorded there with his wife and young family in the 1880 census. According to a granddaughter, Mary Lillian Butler Pierce, in 1883, John James moved his family to the Sand Mountain area of Marshall Co., AL where "John J. Culpepper" was recorded (83:12) in Albertville with his wife and younger children in the 1900 census. He was listed as having been born Dec 1850 in Alabama. A 50 year old "John J. Culpepper" born in Alabama was recorded (96-22) with his wife and daughter in the 1910 census of Marshall Co., AL. His father, Robert J. Culpepper was also living with the family. John James Culpepper apparently remained in Marshall Co., AL the rest of his life since an article about a 1937 family reunion listed his residence as Albertville, AL and this is where he died.
      When Sallie Butler, a granddaughter, was 15 years old, she wrote the following article about John James and Nancy Jane (Willoughby) Culpepper's 64th wedding anniversary: Mr. and Mrs. J. J. Culpepper, known everywhere as "Uncle Jack and Aunt Nancy," will celebrate their 64th Anniversary December 8, 1935. Uncle Jack will also celebrate his 85th birthday December 4, and Aunt Nancy will be 86 on February 8, 1936. These old folks were happily married 64 years ago, on a cold December night about twelve o'clock. They danced until midnight and then ate supper and danced on. For their supper they had cilloububs, most everyone wonders what that is. [Webster's has "syllabub": 1. a drink or dessert made by curdling milk or cream with acid (as wine or cider) 2. a desert of sweetened milk or cream beaten to a froth and flavored with wine or liquor.] They made their home in Clay County [in Randolph Co., AL census records 1860 through 1880] until 1883, when they moved to Sand Mountain [th Albertville area of Marshall Co., AL] in covered wagons which brought them here after five days journey. They've been in this place for 52 years. They have three children, 19 grandchildren, and 14 great grandchildren. Uncle Jack has made a crop for 65 years. He had a small crop of two acres this year, he plowed, hoed, picked part of the crop.... When they came here they lived in a log cabin, which now stands as a barn. They lived in that for 16 years. They then made a better house and have been in it for forty-six years. So here's hoping we may be able to greet them on their birthdays and many more to come. Good wishes and health to you both throughout the remainder of your years. Your granddaughter, Sallie Butler.
      Mary Lillian Butler Pierce, another granddaughter, wrote that John James Culpepper had "a bout of typhoid fever" and that he "lost an eye at age 50 yrs. old. Dr. said he needed heart surgery and wouldn't live unless he had it. He lived 38 more yrs. without the surgery and died a natural death."
      In a 19 Jan 1979 letter, Mary Lillian wrote about the land: My Grandpa Jack bought this 80 or 100 acres of land, where I live, mostly in woods for then 2 small calves and a bale of cotton was 15 cents per lb. Later years, it went back to the Rail Road Co. and he had to pay for it again.... This house was built 1893, a 1 1/2 story, the house still stands, I live in it. Many changes have been made, and some improvements, could stand a few more now.
      In a 20 Jan 1979 letter, Mary Lillian added: A bale of cotton sold for $15.00, 2 calves were probably $1.00 each or $2.00 which made $17.00 for this property in 1880. Now one lot would sell for $5000.00, quite a difference, huh. Then I didn't tell you what Grandpa Jack did, besides farming. He and a neighbor built chimney's (fireplaces) I visited a friend yesterday p.m., had a roaling(?) wood fire, for heat, said my Grandpa built the chimney. That house is 110 years old.... As far as I know didn't any of the Culpeppers of my Mom's generation, ever strike it rich. All of them had a good living and owned a home and farm. My mom said this place was morgaged once for $25.00 about 1905, then she mortgaged it once to build a house on this property....
      Mary Lillian Butler Pierce wrote 23 Apr 1993: My Mom [Mrs. W. E. (Effen Culpepper) Butler] would save about 2 cups of whey & let it clabber [curdle] and my Grandfather would eat it with a spoon with his evening meal.... [is this more syllabub?] Next week if I can, it's decoration [day] at Mt. Vernon [cemetery where John James Culpepper and his wife and some of his children are buried], Sun. May 2nd....
      Mary Lillian preserved the following article from an unknown source about a 1936 John James Culpepper family reunion: CULPEPPER REUNION The Culpeppers held their annual reunion at the home of Uncle Jack Culpepper, Sunday, Sept. 6.

Biography* Sallie Butler, a granddaughter of John James and Nancy Jane (Willoughby) Culpepper, wrote in a 1935 article that "Aunt Nancy will be 86 on February 8, 1936." This would indicate that Nancy was born in 1850 which would correspond with the 1900 census record which indicates that Nancy was born in Alabama in Feb 1850. It is not known if this corresponds with the date from the tombstone.
      Sallie's sister, Mary Lillian Butler Pierce wrote 4 Oct 1992: I don't know anything about my grandmother's [Nancy Jane Willoughby Culpepper's] parents, don't even know their given names [they might be listed in the 1850 census of Chambers Co. or Randolph Co., AL since this is where the Culpepper's were]. Her mother died when she was 7 years old and left a little two-year-old sister, and my grandmother didn't get to go to school a day in her life, and took care of her little sister. I don't know for sure if Lovie was her little sister's name, or if Lovie was a nickname. Mama always said Aunt Lovie. I think Aunt Lovie married a Kerr. My grandmother had another brother Uncle Bud and he and his wife and daughters lived in Waco, TX. Another brother was Jacob. The thing I remember about my grandmother Nancy Jane she was kind, sweet, humble and clean as a pin and a marvelous cook....
      Nancy is presumed to have married John James Culpepper in Ranolph Co., AL where they are noted living in the 1880 census. According to a granddaughter, Mary Lillian Butler Pierce, in 1883, the John James Culpepper family moved to the Sand Mountain area of Marshall Co., AL where the family is noted living in the 1900 census of Albertville, Marshall Co., AL. In the 1900 census "L. A. Willowby" a 16 year old boarder was recorded in the John James Culpepper household. According to Mary Lillian Butler Pierce in a 5 Jan 1995 letter, this was probably Nancy's half-brother Leedy Willoughby. Mary Lillian added that her mother, Mrs. W. E. (Effen L. Culpepper) Butler, had spoken of her Uncle Leedy often and he gave her mother "a hugh trunk" which she considered very special. In the 1900 census, John James Culpepper listed his father as having been born in South Carolina and his mother as having been born in North Carolina. In 1935, for the 64th wedding anniversary of her grandparents, Sallie Butler wrote of Nancy Jane Willoughby Culpepper that "she started then [when Nancy's mother died] cooking, milking, churning and doing all the house work and raised a two year old girl." Sallie Butler also wrote that Nancy had been an invalid for 4 or 5 years.
