From Tommie Sue Reeves Smith, May 2001:

"I talked with Hannie McGill Simpson, daughter of Clara Culpepper McGill today. She had received the copy of the picture and had time to examine it.... She basically agrees that it is almost sure to be a picture of William Jehu and Josephine Culpepper.

The youngest child being held by Julia should be Mary Glanton ,3. George was born in 1890 but is not here at least in the picture. If we can accept this scenario then we have left to right, Malcolm Henry Luther, Josephine Culpepper with Emily Delura, 9, standing in front of her. Julia Eldora,10, would be standing next holding a child that would be Mary Glanton ,3. William Jehu Culpepper would be standing behind Frank, 6. Carrie Eunice and Clara Earnest the twins, 7, should be the toddlers dressed somewhat alike. James Benjamin and John William , 11, the twins should be standing on either side of the horse.

I know this version requires accepting spurts of growth expecially for the three older boys. This would have been in Arkansas because I know that Robert Earl was the first child to be born in Texas. Following him would be Nannie, Carl, and my mother Tessie who was last."1

Biography* William Jehu Culpepper was the son of John Malcolm and Sarah Ann Elizabeth (Stephens) Culpepper. He was noted as a two year old "William G. H. Culpepper" in the 1860 census of Almond P. O. District, to the west northwest of Louina (now Wadley) in Randolph Co., AL, and this is where he is believed to have been born. Billy's middle name is pronounced "jay'hue" and it has been variously recorded as "J. Hugh," "Jahue" and "Jehew." Possibly the 1860 census taker heard "G. Hugh" and recorded "G. H." However, Mrs. D. W. (Lavyn Wright) Sisco, a great- granddaughter of John Malcolm and Sarah Ann Elizabeth (Stephens) Culpepper and a historian for the family, wrote letter 28 Sep 1979 that Billy's daughter-in-law, Mrs. F. D. (Nora McFarland) Culpepper thought that William's middle name was "Jehu (as in the Bible)." Jehu was a king of Israel who was recorded in the Old Testament in Book II Kings as a son of Jehoshaphat, the son of Nimshi and he was noted for destroying the dynasty of Ahab and Jezebel.

Billy married Josephine East in 1876 and they settled down to raise their family in Randolph Co., AL. Although noted in the Louina Beat (now Wadley), Randolph Co., AL in the 1880 census, the family must have lived very close to the border with Tallapoosa Co., AL since they apparently attended the Methodist Episcopal Church of Pleasant Hill in Daviston, Tallapoosa Co., AL.16

Based on the birth locations of children from census records, Billy moved his family to Arkansas around 1890. Unfortunately, the 1890 U. S. census records were burned. Lavyn (Wright) Sisco wrote17 that Billy is believed to have farmed in the Hurricane Creek area of Grant Co., AR. Hurricane Creek runs north to south through the eastern third of the county.

In 1892, Billy's parents moved to the Pine Forest Community in Hopkins Co., TX. This small community is southeast of Weaver (which is about 10 miles east of Sulphur Springs) near the Franklin County line.18 Not long after this, Billy suffered a crop failure in Arkansas and he followed his parents to Texas, taking his family by train to Weaver, TX and from there going on to Pine Forest.19 When Billy arrived in Texas with his family, they had nothing, not even coats and hats.20 Billy started out sharecropping "on the halves" for two or three years on the Walker farm which was owned by Robert A. Minter. 20 A sharecropper was a tenant farmer who, in exchange for a share, e.g., half, of the value of the crops produced, was given credit for seed, tools and a place to stay. When the crops came in, the amount credited was then subtracted from the tenant farmer's share. Gradually, with hard work, Billy was able to accumulate enough that he was able to buy his own land.20 Lavyn (Wright) Sisco wrote:21

Uncle Billy Culpepper was an old man as long as folks could remember, even looked older than his father, John. He was a strong Methodist. His wife was and even-tempered woman who cared for him as though he were a child.... Uncle Billy called everyone younger than he "dear baby." No one would ask him how he felt, he always hurt somewhere. He was a farmer.
     
In 1918, Billy was 60 years old when he lost his wife of 42 Years.22 He then went to live with his daughter, Mrs. Thomas (Tessie Culpepper) Reeves, and this is where he died in 1929 at the age of 71.22

William Jehew & Josephine (East) Culpepper
William Jehew & Josephine (East) Culpepper
Biography* William Jehu Culpepper called his wife "Miss Jo."13 Mrs. R. W. (Tommie Reeves) Smith wrote of her grandmother:14

Julia Ann Josephine East [was the] daughter of Ben and Ikasie (? Kirk) East (for a time I believed that the father of Josephine was Tom but the Randolph Co. Census of 1870 names her as Emily East with correct siblings in Fairplay Township. She was 13. This was six years before her marriage to Billy Culpepper. Her brother was named Tom.) Actually Ben East married twice. Josephine was the youngest child from his first marriage. Her full siblings were named Bill, Laura, and Mary. His second wife's maiden name was Susan Duke. Their children's names were Jim, Richard, John, Wyatt, Mitchell, Tallie and Thomas Elias.

According to the 1910 census record, "Emily J. Culpepper" gave birth to 17 children during 34 years of marriage. William Jehu Culpepper announce new arrivals by saying that he and "Miss Jo" had "done wrong again."13 Only 16 of the 17 children have been identified and only 14 were still living in 1910.

"Miss Jo" died in 1918. Lavyn (Wright) Sisco wrote15 that, in 1955, when a new Methodist Church was being built near the cemetery in Pine Forest:

The Billy [William Jehu] Culpepper family donated the bell for the bell tower. Once upon a time the bell hung in the back yard of the Culpepper home. Ringing the bell was Josephine Culpepper's way of telling the family in the field that dinner was ready.
.
First the name Ikasie is spelled phonetically by me [Tommie Reeves Smith]. In the 1980's I had a personal interview with Mae East Hancock in her home. She was a grand daughter of Benjamin
Franklin East by his second wife. My mother knew her well. She pronounced the name but did not know for sure how to spell it. So I can only suggest you keep an eye to names that sound like it to be sure.
.
For purposes of this discussion I am going to call her Ikasie Kirk East. She could indeed have had another name like Lucy but I do not have that information . Lucy's age would place her two years younger than Benjamin which would work well. She married Benjamin Franklin East who was born Nov. 15, 1834. I do not know Ikasie's birth date unless she is Lucy.
.
Benjamin Franklin East married for the second time Nov. 4, 1858. So Ikasie must have died when my grandmother Emily Julia Ann Josephine East was very young infant. I do not know if the birth had anything to do with Ikasie's death or not.
.
I have seen a census for 1860 that shows a definite reference to the baby about age 2 Emilie Julia Ann Josephine both in the home of J.P. Kirk and in the home of Benjamin East and his new wife Susan. Evidently the census taker came at different times and both the grand parents and the birth father counted the child that was my grandmother. The grandparents must have helped take care of the child between the time of the death of Ikasie and Benjamin's new marriage.
.
I have a very old Bible that has a face sheet in front that shows Billy
Culpepper and Josephine East were married in the home of J.P. Kirk and the ceremony was performed by William Henry Culpepper the grandfather of Billy.
.
I asked Mr. Hoyt Kirk once specifically if he knew of a connection with my grandmother's relatives and those of John Wesley Kirk. He was not able to shed light on it then and of course if I had mentioned Lucy he would probably have known.

Biography20 Feb 1904 A descendant, Ryan Kent, wrote Culpepper Connections on 9 Sep 2009 "I was surprised to see our surname pop up while I was doing some unrelated legal research. I've attached the Westlaw pdf image of the case, John Francis' action to recover back pay as police chief of the city of Pine Bluff. The mayor suspended him but the city council refused to approve the action. Meanwhile John took a job as a deputy sheriff (he resigned almost immediately, and before fulfilling any duties as deputy). Construing this as a resignation, the mayor appointed someone else. From then until the court's ruling, neither John Francis nor his replacement was paid a police salary. The Arkansas Supreme Court held that the job and the back pay belonged to John Francis, because no law prohibited a man from concurrently serving as deputy sheriff and chief of police.3

Biography* John Francis Culpepper was the son of John Malcolm and Sarah Ann Elizabeth (Stephens) Culpepper. He was born and raised in Randolph Co., AL. Sometime after the 1880 census, Frank's parents went by wagon train to Grant Co., AR and Frank is presumed to have gone with them.

In 1885, he married Florence M. Johnson. Mrs. D. W. (Lavyn Wright) Sisco wrote5 that "about 1885-1887," Frank and his younger brother, Dan Culpepper, went to Hopkins Co., TX. Lavyn continued:6

They were looking for good farming land.... Uncle Frank returned to Ark.7 and didn't return.

Frank joined the Pine Bluff, AR police force and served as a patrolman and then as a city detective before being appointed chief of police by Mayor H. King White.8 He served several years in that capacity until he retired in April 1905.8

Frank then went to work as a night watchman for the Bluff City Lumber Company.8 Shortly after midnight, on December 5, 1906, he detained a trespasser that he found on the property.("J. Frank Culpepper Killed by Negro Miscreant Early Today," unknown Pine Bluff, Jefferson Co., AR paper, possibly the Weekly Graphic 5 Dec 1906) Frank intended to turn the man over to the police and kept the man ahead of him as they went up the steps to the office where there was a phone; but, at the top of the steps, the man turned and fired twice, hitting Frank below the heart and in his left leg.8 Frank shot three times killing the man.8 Frank was then taken to his home where he died a few hours later.8 The man was later identified as Eli Tilford who had been arrested previously for carrying a razor.8

Biography* Daniel Elias Leslie Culpepper was the son of John Malcolm and Sarah Ann Elizabeth (Stephens) Culpepper. He was born after the Civil War and raised in Randolph Co., AL. Sometime after the 1880 census, Dan's parents went by wagon train to Grant Co., AR and Dan is presumed to have gone with them.

Mrs. D. W. (Lavyn Wright) Sisco, a family historian for the John Malcolm Culpepper family, wrote 15 that "about 1885-1887," Dan and his older brother, Frank Culpepper, went to Hopkins Co., TX to look for land. Frank returned to Arkansas, but Dan apparently stayed and, in 1889, he married Dora (Hardison) Stephens, his cousin's widow, and they settled down in Pine Forest, Hopkins Co., TX to raise their family. Mrs. D. W. (Lavyn Wright) Sisco wrote:16

Uncle Dan Culpepper was a very tall man. He farmed some but was also in law enforcement....

Dan was 43 years old when Dora died in 1911. In 1914, Dan married another widow, Omega Lela (Johnson) Page. Dan was 52 years old when his second wife died in 1920. Dan was married a third time in 1923 to Sarah Maud Hopper. They settled down east of Como, Hopkins Co., TX. Over a period of about 14 years before his death, Dan served as a justice of the peace or as a constable.17

In the Fall of 1935, he was appointed constable of the County Commissioners Court and, in late January, 1936, he was serving as door bailiff for the grand jury of the District Court in Sulphur Springs.17 According to the Friday, 31 Jan 1936 Hopkins County Echo 17 on "Thursday night,"after finishing up with a grand jury session, Dan was headed home when his car ran into a truck and Dan was killed. There were other accidents in the area that night which were attributed to the sleet and ice covered highways and windshields and these factors were believed to have contributed to Dan's accident. Dan was 68 years old.

Biography* Robert Henry Luther Culpepper was the son of John Malcolm and Sarah Ann Elizabeth (Stephens) Culpepper. Luther was noted as a one year old "Robert Culpepper" with his parents in the 1870 census of Louina P. O. District, Randolph Co., AL and this is where he is presumed to have been born. This district was in the area of what is now known as Wadley, AL. Sometime after the 1880 census, Luther's parents moved the family by wagon train to Grant Co., AR, then, in 1892,("Beautiful Tribute Paid to Uncle John Culpepper" unknown source, presumably a Hopkins Co., TX paper, circa 12 Jan 1927) Luther went with his parents and their two youngest children by train to Saltillo, Hopkins Co., TX.(Mrs. D. W. (Lavyn Wright) Sisco, "John Malcolm Culpepper," typed sheet and letter 15 Apr 1994) In 1895, Luther married Annie Elizabeth Forgy and they settled down to raise their family near Saltillo, TX. Mrs. D. W. (Lavyn Wright) Sisco wrote: (summary of the children of John Malcolm Culpepper) Uncle Luther Culpepper was a rustic fellow. He settled near Saltillo (Hopkins County). When all the relatives came on the train, they always stayed with Uncle Luther. Uncle Luther built a house when he first came to Texas. His youngest daughter purchased the farm when she married. She reared her family in the same house and tore the original house down within the last five years. Luther died in 1921 at the age of 51. ======================= A 41 year old Luther was listed in the 1910 census of Hopkins Co., TX (ED 60 Sheet 217) with his wife and older children.
      Mrs. D. W. (Lavyn Wright) Sisco in a 5 Jan 1978 letter listed the name as "Robert H. Luther Culpepper." The Mrs. Tommie Reeves Smith Family Group Sheet lists "Malcolm Henry Luther" but this was a son of William Jehu Culpepper. Census records support "Robert H." He was known as "Luther." Mrs. D. W. (Lavyn Wright) Sisco supplied a family group sheet for Robert H. Luther Culpepper which noted that after the 1880 census, the family had moved from Alabama to Grant Co., AR where they remained until 1888 when they moved on to Hopkins Co., TX "settling at Route 1, Saltillo." Lavyn noted in a 15 Apr 1994 letter that Luther had come by train to Saltillo, TX with his parents. Mrs. Sisco also supplied the following information in a summary of the children of J. M. Culpepper: Uncle Luther Culpepper was a rustic fellow. He settled near Saltillo (Hopkins County). When all the relatives came on the train, they always stayed with Uncle Luther. Uncle Luther built a house when he first came to Texas. His youngest daughter purchased the farm when she married. She reared her family in the same house and tore the original house down within the last five years.

Sometime after the 1880 census, Sally's parents moved the family by wagon train to Grant Co., AR.

In 1889, Sally married George Franklin Hill. The couple was noted with their infant daughter in Sulphur Township, Grant Co., AR in the 1900 census records. However, based on the birth location of the next child, the family moved to Hopkins Co., TX by 1902 and this is where they settled down to raise their family. According to Mrs. D. W. (Lavyn Wright) Sisco,4 their farm was "one mile southwest of the J. C. Bradford farm." Mrs. J. C. (Nancy Gillespie Culpepper) Bradford was Sally's younger sister.

At some point Sally and George apparently moved to Oklahoma since this is where George died in 1933. Sally was 61 years old. Sally died in 1957 in Texas at the age of 86.

Nannie Bradford was an even tempered woman. She married James (Jim) Bradford. Jim Bradford was one of the best farmers in the county. His first seven children were girls and each could plow with mules as well as any boy. The Bradford home was a gathering center. There were always birthday dinners, Easter egg hunts, watermellon cuttings and Jim was always 'it' in the first game of blindman's buff. All preachers and peddlers were welcome to spend the night at the Bradford house.

Nannie died in 1932 at the age of 58.

Subject: James Cope Bradford family
.... this picture was taken at the Bradford homeplace. In 1906 my grandfather purchased the farm SE of Pine Forest. The house was old and cold and had a hall [breezeway] down the middle. My mother was never sure if she was born here or on the farm my grandfather rented when he came to Texas. The rented farm was located near the Mr. Frank Adams place north of Pine Forest. At that time in history folk could go east, cross Stouts Creek and come out at the Luther Culpepper farm. That road has long been closed.

The family moved to the newly purchased farm of 72 acres and we know for sure Guy, Aubrey and Mattie were born at this location. In 1916 James Bradford built a new house where this old house once stood.

In the Picture is Hurley and Alice Bradford Richey (Hurley is holding baby, Ruby), Leona, Ida, Ruth, Frankie, Robbie, Argent, GGM Argent Stephens Bradford Mosley, Nancy Bradford and James Cope Bradford holding Guy.1,2

She was born in Randolph Co., AL but, sometime after the 1880 census, her parents moved the family by wagon train to Grant Co., AR.

In 1892,4 Mattie Myra's parents took her and her younger brother along with her older brother, Luther, and went by train to Saltillo, Hopkins Co., TX5 where they settled down in the Pine Forest Community.

There Mattie Myra met and married Ed Minter and they are noted with their young family in the 1900 census of Hopkins Co., TX. Mrs. D. W. (Lavyn Wright) Sisco wrote6 that Ed "made sure his wife, Mattie, had a new dress or hat. She did enjoy looking nice even when she was a very old lady and was in poor health."

Ed died in 1921 when Mattie Myra was 45 years old. She died in 1958 at the age of 82.

Biography* Capos Conley Culpepper was the youngest son of John Malcolm and Sarah Ann Elizabeth (Stephens) Culpepper. A one year old "Capers C. Culpepper" was noted in the 1880 census of Beat 8 in Randolph Co., AL and this is where he is presumed to have been born. Beat 8 appears to have been in the vicinity of Flatrock, near Almond to the west of what is now known as Wadley, AL. The name "Capos" is unique and it is interesting to note that the name was recorded as "Capers" in the 1880 census record. A grandson who shares the name, Capos Conley "Chip" Culpepper, II, believes that "Capers," through transmission with a Southern accent, might have become "Capos." A cousin who was born in 1860 was named "Charles Capers Culpepper." He is supposed to have been named after a Methodist Bishop. Chip investigated this and he wrote:11

FYI William Capers ... was elected a Bishop in the Methodist & Episcopal Church in 1846. The next year, 1847, he was sent to be the first Bishop of the Church in of all places... Arkansas... Coincidence? I don't think so.... I now have a print of what appears to have been an old wood-cut portrait of the good Bishop. He looks rather like George Washington on a dollar bill (a bit more hair though).... One reference to him calls him "...that great messenger of the gospel to the slaves."

Sometime after the 1880 census, Cape's parents moved the family by wagon train to Grant Co., AR. Chip compiled a book, A Collection of Culpeppers 12 which focuses on the Capos Conley Culpepper family and in it 13 Chip notes that Cape was about six or seven when the family moved from Alabama to Arkansas and recalled "how the family landed by flatboat at Pine Bluff in Jefferson County, Arkansas after crossing the Mississippi."
In 1892,14 Cape's parents took him and his older sister, Melvina Miriam, accompanied by their older brother, Luther, and they went by train to Saltillo, Hopkins Co., TX 15 where they settled down in the Pine Forest Community. They were soon followed by the William "Billy" Jehu Culpepper family.

It was not long after this that Cape went back to Arkansas. Mrs. R. W. (Tommie Reeves) Smith, a William Jehu Culpepper family historian, passed on 16 a story that she had heard about Cape and Billy:

Capus came riding up to Billy's home on his horse. Billy's dog came out as usual and as always was barking and yipping at the horse's feet scaring the horse. Capus took a gun he had, reportedly only to scare the dog away but his aim was such on the moving horse that he shot the dog dead on the spot. History does not say what Billy's response was but Chip and I think it was about this time Capus probably decided that Texas wasn't quite big enough for both he and Billy.

Whatever the reason, Cape returned to Arkansas where he met Annie Atchley and they married in 1901. Cape brought his bride back to Texas but, based on birth states of their children noted in census records, they returned to Arkansas around 1905. Mrs. D. W. (Lavyn Wright) Sisco, a John Malcolm Culpepper family historian, wrote17 that Annie thought Texas was "a God Forsaken Country" and wanted to go back to Arkansas. In Arkansas, Cape became a law enforcement officer, eventually becoming Captain of the Pine Bluff Police Department.18

Chip wrote19 that Cape suffered a stroke and died a short time later on April 11, 1959 at the age of 80 years.

Biography* Malcolm Henry Luther Culpepper was the son of William Jehu and Emily Julia Ann Josephine (East) Culpepper.
      According to Tommie Smith, "he was one of at least three of his siblings who developed Diabetes that plagued him a long time. His death in 1933 at the age of 44 no doubt was hastened by the disease. Most of his children were close to the age of his youngest sibling, Tessie Lee Sue Culpepper Reeves."
      Mack was born and raised in Randolph Co., AL where he was noted with his parents in the 1880 census but probably near the Tallapoosa Co., AL border since the family apparently attended church in Daviston, AL.12

Around 1890, the family is believed to have moved to a farm in the Hurricane Creek area of Grant Co., AR and Mack would presumably have accompanied his parents.13 Unfortunately, the 1890 U. S. census records were burned. In the mid-1890's, Mack's parents moved again, this time to Hopkins Co., TX. Again, Mack appears to have accompanied his parents and this is apparently where he met Elba Louella McGill whom he married in 1899.

Mack and Elba appear to have settled down to farm and raise their family in Hopkins Co., TX and they were noted there in 1900 and 1910 census records. But, by the time of the 1920 census, the family had moved to Miller Co., AR. Mack died in 1933 at the age of 55.

Biography* John William Culpepper was the son of William Jehu and Emily Julia Ann Josephine (East) Culpepper. He was born and spent his early years in Randolph Co., AL where he was noted with his parents in the 1880 census but probably near the Tallapoosa Co., AL border since the family apparently attended church in Daviston, AL.14 Bill remembered going for mail as a boy on a public road near the water mill of Lum (Loamni) Stephens in Randolph Co., AL. The road crossed a rock that was at least a mile across.15

Around 1890, the family is believed to have moved to a farm in the Hurricane Creek area of Grant Co., AR and Bill would presumably have accompanied his parents.16 Unfortunately, the 1890 U. S. census records were burned. In the mid-1890's, Bill's parents moved again, this time to Hopkins Co., TX. Again, Bill appears to have accompanied his parents and this is apparently where he met Cora Agnes Williams whom he married in 1902.

Bill and Cora appear to have settled down to raise their family in Hopkins Co., TX and they were noted there in 1910 and 1920 census records. Bill died in 1970 at the age of 91.

From Tommie Reeves Smith, tommies@home.com, Sep 2000:
     
"I honestly can't remember if I mentioned to you the church bell story in Pine Forest. I was reminded of it back in April when we had the dedication of the Cival War Marker for John Malcolm. The church that sits next to the cemetery is the Methodist Church. Many
Culpeppers have worshiped there through the years. The present sanctuary was built in 1957 when I was a teen. As it was being built with a steeple one of the laymen mentioned to John William Culpepper ( Billy and Josephine) that they needed to obtain a bell. Uncle Will Culpepper indicated that was no problem, that he had one. He presented the bell that had hung on the farm of Billy and Josephine Culpepper summoning the family for meals for years. The bell was hung in the steeple and remains there today. On the day of the dedication it was arranged that someone ring that bell for all to hear at precisely 2:00 P.M to start the ceremony. It was spine tingling for me and no doubt for other Culpepper descendants present."
