Based on the 1900 census record, Mary A. Eliza married John D. McGill circa 1878. The couple was noted with a nine month old daughter in the 1880 census of Randolph Co., AL and they were noted with their younger children in the 1900 census of Flatrock, near Almond to the west of what is now Wadley, AL. Mary A. Eliza was listed as having had ten children, nine of whom were still living in 1900. She apparently had at least one more child before her death in 1903 at the age of 40. Mary A. Eliza probably died in Flatrock where she was last noted in census records.

Biography* James F. G. Culpepper was the son of William Araspes and Zillah Ann Caroline (Barron) Culpepper. His middle names are a puzzle. A granddaughter, Mrs. Arthur (Marie Veazey) Turk wrote 5 that he was named James Francis Culpepper but "he objected to Francis and used Franklin instead." In the 1870 census he was noted as "James G. Culpepper." One wonders if his full name might have been James Francis Gillespie Culpepper? In any event, he was born and raised in the vicinity of what is now Wadley, AL and he was noted with his parents in the 1870 and 1880 census records of Randolph Co., AL.

In 1887, James married Valula Ann Seymore. Unfortunately, the 1890 census records burned so it is not known where the couple settled down initially. They are noted with their young family in the 1900 census of Chambers Co., AL and they are found in the 1910 census in Randolph Co., AL. James F. Culpepper's wife of 22 years died in 1910. He was 43 years old.

In 1911, he was married a second time, this time to Lela Lenora "Nora" Stephens. Nora (Stephens) Culpepper appears in the 1920 census of Tift Co., GA, as a widow living with her brother Walter and daughter, Maude.

On March 7, 2006, Frederick Seymour Culpepper, grandson of James, wrote: "James F Culpepper, in the early 1900, went to Wauchula, FL, near Dade City FL; Indian Town, FL, and a town near Miami, FL airport, and Homestead, FL. He was speculating and developing land ahead of the railroad arrival. At Homestead , FL all the money was lost because the road and railroad did not arrive, and the mosquitoes were so bad that they would carry a horse off. He went to work as a switchman on a railroad somewhere had an accident and lost an arm. He then went to live with his daughter Lola and son-in-law (M Vesey) south of Tifton, GA until his daughter died about 1943. He then moved to his daughter Maud Piper in Taft, Texas where he is buried."6

Since the month and year of Walker Pearson's birth was given as April 1864 in the 1900 census, this was selected as the year of birth of the twins.

This photo was sent to Lew Griffin in 1980 by Manola Culpepper Logan (Mrs. Thomas G. Logan) of Detroit, MI. She was a descendant of Elias Daniel Culpepper, and suggested that this photo was of his family. However, if one looks at the children, and their ages and sexes, this cannot possibly be the Elias Daniel Culpepper family. But the photo is a perfect match for the family of Elias D.'s brother, William A. Culpepper. So I'm posting the photo here. Further information on this photo will be appreciated.

Biography* Charles E. Culpepper was the son of William Araspes and Zillah Ann Caroline (Barron) Culpepper. He was born and raised in the vicinity of what is now known as Wadley, AL. He was noted with his parents in 1880 Randolph Co., AL census records. Sometime in the 1890's, Charles went with his parents to Hopkins Co., TX 7 but the family returned to Alabama before the 1900 census.

Based on information from the 1910 census Charles married Nancy Lula around 1898. The couple and their infant daughter are noted in the 1900 census in Flatrock which is near Almond to the west of Wadley, AL. E. Hurley Pearson wrote:8

Their old family home,9 a log house was located a mile out of town but has been moved into Wadley and is now used as a craft shop. It is in remarkably good condition....

Based on the birth locations of the children from census records, the family returned to Hopkins Co., TX around 1903 and this is where the family was noted in the 1910 census. By the 1920 census, the family had moved to Carter Co., OK. E. Hurley Pearson wrote:8

Charles moved to Oklahoma (Shawnee) and raised a large family. (Many of his family are still in Shawnee.) He came back here 10 several times after the war (World War II) and visited. He was the last survivor.

Biography* Ola Mae was the daughter of James F. G. and Valula Ann (Seymour) Culpepper. She was born and raised in Alabama. Unfortunately, the 1890 census records were burned so it is not known if the family was in Chambers or Randolph Co., AL at the time. By the 1900, the family was in Chambers Co., AL where Ola was noted with her parents in the census there and this is where she married Loomis Veazey in 1905. At some point, the couple moved to Tifton, Tift Co., GA and this is where Ola died in 1947 at the age of 57.

Death*Dec 1964 He died at Chicago, Cook Co., Illinois, in Dec 1964 at age 67. 
Biography* William Seymour Culpepper was the son of James F. G. and Valula Ann (Seymore) Culpepper. He was born and raised in Alabama, possibly in Chambers Co., AL since this is where he was noted with his parents in the 1900 census. By 1910, the family had moved to Randolph Co., AL and this is where his mother died when William was 12 years old. William's father and stepmother have not been located in 1920 census records but, based on later records, it is possible that the family moved to Georgia. In 1920, William appears as a 22-year-old single man and boarder at Dahlgren, Naval Proving Grounds, King George County, VA. His occupation was a surveyor of roads.

At some point, probably in the early 1920s, William married Martha Ida Wilde and, although their first child was born in Atlanta, GA, the couple apparently decided to settle down and raise their family in Chicago, IL. And this is where William died in 1964 at the age of 67.
