George Bright Culpepper, who noted: The next year a fourth son was born to Fayette and Jennie Culpepper on Pleasant Ridge in Macon County, Georgia. This boy grew to manhood and in 1887 moved with his parents to Pratt City, Alabama, where he worked in the railroad shops. From there he went to Pittsburgh and for many years I have lost track of him entirely. His name is Otis O'Daniel Culpepper.
In the 1910 census, the occupation of Otis was listed as a crane operator for the steel mills. On the death certificate, his occupation is listed as a "heater" for U.S. Steel Corp. His usual residence is given as 1609 North 16th Street, Melrose Park, IL. He died of carcinoma of the liver which he had had for about 6 months and metastasis to lungs.

Mabel Killian

Female, #34324, (9 Jul 1890 - 19 Dec 1976)
Note* From Dianne L. Killian, Sep 2003:

Mabel was my husband's Great Aunt. Her mothers middle name is either Jean or Elizabeth. There is what looks like a J between her name on her marriage certificate to Thomas N. Her daughter in law:Eva Mae Meyer Killian told me her middle name was Eizabeth. As I have not been able to find Rhoda's grave stone I am not sure which is right. I know that she died around the early 1900's. Her second husband ,John R. Bookout was ,re married by 1908.
I have a picture of Mabel with her two brothers:Thomas Henry Bennett Sr. and Marshall C.Killian Sr.

Biography* Rev.

She was named Lucy Kate, for her grandmother Culpepper and an Aunt Catherine Brooks....
Mrs. M. R. (Patricia Williams) Ortega wrote of her grandmother, Mrs. B. M. (Lucy Kate Culpepper) Angwin, 3 Mar 1991: The person Grandmother referred to as Aunt net was truly an aunt. I believe she was the sister of Elizabeth J. Brooks. Grandmother said her Mother (the first Mrs. August Culpepper) died when Grandmother was three years old. August Culpepper could not raise a little girl alone and Aunt Net raised Grandmother. Virgil Culpepper was Grandmothers half brother. The second Mrs. August Culpepper must have died rather early also. Grandmother married B. M. Angwin and they finished raising Virgil.

Biography* Mrs. John (Dorothy Culpepper) Wingfield preserved a 25 page typed manuscript "ONE FAMILY - CULPEPPER" written by her grandfather, Rev. George Bright Culpepper, who noted:
     After about two years Fayette went to Wilmore, Kentucky, and married a Miss Miller [this was apparently based on Virgil Miller Culpepper's middle name but in a 26 Aug 1978 letter, Rev. Virgil M. Culpepper specified "My Father was A. L. Culpepper - Taylor County, Ga., my Mother Rebecca Williams - Wilmore, Ky.]. They came back to Pratt City where a son, Virgil Miller Culpepper, was born. He became a Methodist preacher and is now (September 28, 1942) stationed at Taft, Texas. He married Miss Carolyn Brooks over in Macon County, Georgia. They have two boys - the oldest, Stewart, and the youngest, George. Virgil's wife is a half-niece of Virgil's father's first wife. Virgil's wife's father was a half-brother of Jennie, Virgil's father's first wife; but Virgil's mother was the second wife of Fayette and her son married the daughter of his step-mother's half-brother. If you can, you may figure out the fam-mix-up.

     Mrs. M. R. (Patricia Williams) Ortega wrote, 3 Mar 1991, that "Virgil went to the Birmingham Southern Seminary." Rev. Virgil M. Culpepper wrote, 26 Aug 1978, that he "was in the Evangelistic work for ten years and the Pastorate for 39 years. Have been retired 9 years."

     The following is from p. 299 of Who's Who in The Methodist Church published by Abingdon Press in 1966:

Mason, Rotarian, Kiwanian. Home: 418 W. Church St. Office: 1st Meth. Ch., Cuthbert, Ga.

     The Rev. Virgil M. Culpepper Died 1:50 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 20, 1987, at Lane Memorial Hospital, Zachary. He was 83, a native of Birmingham, Ala., and resident of Clinton. He was a retired Methodist minister, having served the church since he was 14. He served in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana and Texas conferences 39 years.

George Bright Culpepper, which noted: On January 15, 1895, there was born to us in Brunswick, Georgia, in what we designated as the Grier House, our first- born, as winsome a child as I have ever known. Her eyes were blue, her skin was fair, and her hair was golden. She is living now in Fort Valley, Georgia. She married a man named Chester Wilson. They have one child, a lovely daughter who is nearly 22 years old, wonderfully sweet and pretty. We named our daughter Marion, after my father. She named her daughter Frances Marion. My daughter, at this time is organist for the Methodist Church in Fort Valley, and delights in her work. Chester Wilson, my son- in-law, is in the insurance business. The status of my daughter's family is, as of today, October 5, 1942, as above.
      According to p. 228 of the History of Peach County "Marion Culpepper attended Andrew College and later studied organ with Mrs. Jelks of Macon."

Biography* Mrs. John (Dorothy Culpepper) Wingfield preserved a 25 page typed manuscript "ONE FAMILY - CULPEPPER" written by her grandfather, Rev. George Bright Culpepper, which noted:

This brings me to December 1899 and to the birth of my second son, on December 4, 1899. To this son we gave the name of George Bacon, for his father and Miss Mary Bacon, one of the teachers at Georgia State College for Women, located at Milledgeville. He grew to manhood and during the first World War worked for the Government in the War Department.

In April 1919 he married Miss Mary Adams of Atlanta. They have one son and one daughter. To the son, born December 26, 1920, they gave the name of George Brown Culpepper....

George Bacon was born in Fort Valley, Georgia, in what we called the Branch House - it having been the home of Reverend Frank Branch. The place is now (Oct. 5, 1942) owned and occupied by William M. Wright....

George B. Culpepper, Jr., is a lawyer in Fort Valley, Georgia, and has the largest clientele of any lawyer in the town or county; I would say in the counties of Peach, Houston, Crawford and Macon. He is a Mason, a steward in the Methodist Church, a Major in 4th Corps Area - a splendid man and a good lawyer.

He has had pneumonia four times, the first attack being when he was three months old. At one time, the doctor said that he was dead; but God spared him. Again when he was 14 he had pneumonia. In 1918 he had flu and pneumonia in Atlanta. Again in 1919 he had an operation for the removal of his appendix followed by pneumonia. For 18 years he has suffered from neuralgia of the heart - called by some doctors pseudo-angina. He has bronchitis several times. His energy and a good wife and the Good Lord have kept him going until this day (Oct. 6, 1942).

He is retained by the Central of Georgia Railroad for that district.... In the fall of that year [1901] we moved to the house on the corner of College Street and Everett Square, now owned and occupied by Henry M. Branham. We lived there but a few months but long enough for Marion and Caughey and George to have scarlet fever. On December 18, 1901, we moved across that Square to what was known as the Henry Harris House - still on the corner of College Street and Everett Square.

The following excerpt is from p. 228 of the History of Peach County: George Bacon Culpepper studied law in the office of his uncle, Charles Leighton Shepard, stood the State Bar Examination and later was admitted to practice before the Supreme Court of the United States. He was an attorney in Fort Valley for over fifty years.

The following is from Mrs. F. D. (Lee Collins) Hale from an unknown source: Lawyer, admitted to Georgia Bar in 1923. Was chief of Selective Service System in Georgia from 1918 to 1919. Was in insurance business in Fort Valley GA., 1920-1922. Was a member, and vice chariman, board of trustees, and chairman, investment co., Employees Retirement System of GA., 1949-1963. Was a member of the governor's staff, 1948-1963. Was an Honorary Vice President, American Sunday School Union, 1958--. Was a member of the American Bar Association; American Judicature Society; National Railroad Trial Counsel Assn. Was a Methodist, Mason, and Kiwanian.

George B. Culpepper was also listed in "Who's Who in the South and Southwest" in 1973: "Lawyer: b. Fort Valley. GA, 4 Dec 1899: s. George B.and Lillian (Shepard) Culpepper: student pub. schs; m.

Mrs. Eleanor (Culpepper) Willingham sent the following from p. 3 of the "Hogansville Herald" for 1 Feb 1996: "Union Baptist" By Robert L. Harris, Pastor The late George B. Culpepper, Jr. of Fort Valley, Georgia was considered by many to be the best trial lawyer in the state. He was also a widely respected Sunday School teacher. For many years his lessons to the adult class in the Methodist Church could be heard every Sunday morning over WFPM. He frequently used Biblical truths or stories in the courtroom. This proved bothersome to one well know prosecutor from Macon who was often Mr. Culpepper's opponent in court. Once the prosecutor made the mistake of ridiculing Mr. Culpepper's use of the Bible in the defense of his clients. This prosecutor, in his first statement to one jury, warned them as follows: "Mr. Culpepper" he said, "Is probably going to quote lo you something out of the Bible, but I can tell you now that the Bible doesn't have anything to do with this case." Mr. Culpepper's opening words to the jury have never been forgotten by anyone who heard them. They are still often quoted in legal and civic circles in this state and beyond. "lt is strange," he replied, "that our learned prosecutor should take exception to my use of the Bible in this court room. He says the Bible has nothing to do with this cause. But you well know that every witness in this case will be asked to put his hand on the Bible and swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Furthermore, the very laws by which we decide cases in every court in this country can be traced back to the 10 commandments in this Bible. If ever the time comes when the Bible has nothing to do with any case in this court, we are in deep trouble." Well, we still use the Bible to swear in witnesses, but we've taken the 10 commandments off the walls of our court houses and our schools, and we are in deep trouble in this country.

The following is from The Butler Herald, Thursday, March 13, 1919. Vol. XXXXIII, No. 18.

G.B. Culpepper, Jr., Makes Fine Business Record

The Taylor county friends of the Culpepper family, who for many years were citizens of this county and highly esteemed by all, shares with the people of Fort Valley in appreciation of the record made and honors conferred upon Mr. Geo. B. Culpepper, Jr., as referred to in the following which is reproduced from the Fort Valley Ledger-Tribune:

A Fort Valley boy's record is always gratifying to our people when it is won by conscientious effort. We take pleasure therefore, in saying a few things about Geo B. Culpepper, Jr., who for the past fifteen months has been connected with the State Military Department in Atlanta.

By order of Provost Marshal General Crowder, and by direction of Governor Dorsey, George B. Culpepper, Jr., was appointed Inspector, for the purpose of assisting in the supervision of the final work of the Selective Draft Board in the State of Georgia.

This appointment of Inspector is a testimonial of high order to the ability and efficiency of this young man, inasmuch as this work is committed to the hands of skilled lawyers and efficiency experts.

Mr. Culpepper has received generous recognition at the hands of authorities over him and the several promotions he has received are evidence of his ability and satisfactory service.

On December 10, 1917, he was appointed Chief Clerk to Major W.C. Lyle, Medical Aide to Governor Dorsey.

On May 18, 1918, he was made Private Secretary to Major Joel B. Mallet, Officer in Charge of the Selective Service Law in the State of Georgia.

On July 1st, 1918, he was made Head of Mobilization Department in Georgia, and while occupying this position he had direct supervision of the mobilization of thirty-five thousand soldiers.

On December 1st, 1918, he was appointed Chief Clerk of entire State Military Department as successor to Maj. Jno. T. Dorsey.

Mr. Culpepper was the only employee of the State Military Department for whom the Governor felt authorized to claim deferred classification on the ground of being necessary employee of the United States Government.

Biography* Mrs. John (Dorothy Culpepper) Wingfield preserved a 25 page typed manuscript "ONE FAMILY - CULPEPPER" written by her grandfather, Rev. George Bright Culpepper, which noted: This brings us down to the year 1901 and to the month of June and to the 6th day of that month, when there was born to us another son. To this son we gave the name of John Shepard; for my brother, John B. Culpepper, and this son's grandfather, Shepard. He was born in what was called the Brick House on the west side of Knoxville Street, in Fort Valley, Georgia. The house is now owned and occupied by the great-aunt of John Shepard Culpepper - a 10-room, 2-story brick house, comfortable and strong.... John Shepard Culpepper, the third son and fourth child, of George B. Culpepper, Sr., and his wife Lilla, grew up to manhood and finally went to work for the railroad in the office in Fort Valley. And on October 20, 1920 went to Jacksonville and went to work for the Southern Railway where George White was Agent. He has been with the Southern Railway System from then until now (Oct. 6, 1942). From Jacksonville, Florida, he was transferred to Greenville, South Carolina. He is Freight Traffic Agent at Greenville now. Twelve years ago he married Miss Frances Baugh, of Greenville. They have two children, a son and daughter. John Shepard, Jr., is the name of the son, and Katherine Shaw is the name of the daughter. They are exceedingly bright children. They were both baptized in Fort Valley, Georgia, by Reverend George B. Culpepper, Sr., at the home of George B. Culpepper, Jr. John, as everybody calls him, is loved and honored by the entire city of Greenville. He is a Mason, a Kiwanian, a steward in the Buncomb Street Methodist Church, and is a teacher in the Sunday School, and often leads the services in not only Methodist churches but also in Presbyterian and Baptist churches as well. He is an upright and Godly man, for which I thank God. His wife is active in many affairs of the city, church and school. She is descended from the Jeffersons of Virginia. John is descended from the Culpeppers and Pierces of Virginia, the Gordons and Kings of Georgia. John was in Atlanta yesterday (Oct. 5) on his way back from Jacksonville, Florida, where he had gone to see his brother who has been seriously ill.

Biography* Mrs. John (Dorothy Culpepper) Wingfield preserved a 25 page typed manuscript "ONE FAMILY - CULPEPPER" written by her grandfather, Rev. George Bright Culpepper, which noted: On January 27, 1904, in Fort Valley, Georgia, the fourth son and fifth child was born to Reverend and Mrs. George B. Culpepper, Sr. Dr. Harris M. Branham was the officiating physician. To this son was given the name of Thomas Jackson, for his mother's oldest brother and for a business friend of his father, E. F. Jackson, at the time living in Atlanta. This son developed into a strong, healthy boy and grew to honorable manhood - strong, courageous, and thoroughly dependable in every walk of life. In the fall of 1921 he went to work for the Southern Railway at Jacksonville, Florida, where his brother John S. Culpepper, had been at work for a year. He continued there until 1939, when he was transferred to the Columbia Division of the road as Freight Traffic adjustor. He was transferred to Lynchburg Division of the Southern in 1941 and is living in Lynchburg, Virginia now. Before leaving Jacksonville, he married Miss Ola St. Claire Lewis, of that city who was then employed by the State Board of Health of Florida. She continued her work and after he was transferred to Columbia, she went to see him each alternate Friday and he went to see her the other, until 1940 when she resigned and went to live in Columbia where his office was. In order that they might be married by his father, they went from Jacksonville to Fort Valley for the ceremony. Her mother came with them by automobile. They were married on June 25, 1935, in the home of George B. Culpepper, Jr. Ola is a splendid woman and she and her husband are leading a happy and useful life as they pass along. They have no children, but both of them are always doing something to make some child happy or some grown person smile. They make the world better for their living in it. Their home life is smooth, even and joyous.

Biography* Mrs. John (Dorothy Culpepper) Wingfield preserved a 25 page typed manuscript "ONE FAMILY - CULPEPPER" written by her grandfather, Rev. George Bright Culpepper, which noted: This brings the record down to the youngest child of Reverend and Mrs. George B. Culpepper, Sr. This was a son, born on April 30, 1907, in Fort Valley, in what was known as the Skellie House on the corner of College and Green Streets. The place was then owned by the writer of these lines. To this son was given the name of Charles Frederick, for his uncle Fred Shepard and his grandfather Shepard, whose given name was Charles. He has had a rocky road in point of health. When he was six weeks old he commenced to have abscesses in his ear and suffered with them for years, even until now. He has just had a severe attack in Jacksonville (Oct. 10) as severe as to produce convulsions. When he was 14 he had his tonsils removed and for a time he was improved. In September 1925 he went to work for the Southern Railway in Jacksonville, or was to do so on September 22nd, but appendicitis attacked him that same day and he had to go to the hospital. He was operated on and seemed to be doing well until phlebitis attacked him and he had to stay in St. Luke's Hospital until November 22nd; then in a private home until December 22nd when we brought him to Fort Valley, to the home of George B. Culpepper, Jr. In all he was in bed for 19 weeks, and 12 weeks of that time I filled three ice caps every three hours, night and day, for application to three different locations on the inside of his right leg - due to inflammation of the large vein there. At two points, one on the ankle and one on the calf of the leg, the inflammation broke down and had to be treated vigorously and continually. But he recovered to the extent that he could go back to Jacksonville and go to work for the Southern Railway. On December 26, 1926, he married Miss Alice Long, a Fort Valley girl, and they moved to Jacksonville; but his health gave way and they had to take him to the hospital several times. During all this time he was a great sufferer. But he is a man of great determination and tenacity. Even while he was bedridden he was studying. And stood a civil service examination though he had to go to Macon and was on crutches. In the fall of 1933 he received orders to report to the Engineers Department at Greenville, Mississippi. He went and worked there for several months, when he was transferred to Clewisten, Florida, where he worked for about a year, then being transferred to the Engineer Office in Jacksonville, where he now is employed. He has pulled himself into a good position and salary by himself. He has made good though a sufferer all these years. And his good wife has stood by him through thick and thin and has shown herself a heroine indeed. They are a noble couple and have a most interesting family.

Biography* Mrs. John (Dorothy Culpepper) Wingfield preserved a 25 page typed manuscript "ONE FAMILY - CULPEPPER" written by her grandfather, Rev. George Bright Culpepper, which noted: Now comes a gloomy day. In June 1906 a beautiful little girl was born to Reverend and Mrs. George B. Culpepper, Sr., and to her was given the name of Lucy Brown, for her grandmother Culpepper and for the doctor who attended her mother. Through an unavoidable circumstance, a change in the baby's diet, she was attacked by dysentery and when she was two months and 22 days old she was taken away from us into the heavenly home. She is buried in Fort Valley, Georgia.
No dates are shown on Lucy's tombstone. She is listed as: Lucy Brown Culpepper Infant Daughter of Rev. G. B. & Mrs. L. M. Culpepper Age 2 months & 26 days.
