Given the fact that there was such a lapse in time between the last record of William (1850 census) and this education in 1883, and also given that the William in the 1850 census would have been about 52 years old in 1883 (old to be in school), this medical education record has probably been assigned to the wrong William. Culpepper.4

Civil War*between 1863 and 1865 Captain James F. Culpepper and Culpepper's Battery
     The unit known as "Culpepper’s Battery" was named for its commander, Captain James F. Culpepper, who was from Darlington, SC. Culpepper’s Battery was designated as "light artillery" and the unit was placed in various positions in defense of Charleston and the vicinity.
     Confederate forces at Vicksburg, MS were facing a superior force under the command of federal General Ulysses S. Grant. Culpepper’s Battery and additional troops from South Carolina were selected to aid General Pemberton at Vicksburg. They departed Charleston on May 17, 1863 and traveled by railroad some 700 miles to Jackson, MS, arriving May 24th. On July 5, 1863, Culpepper’s Battery reached the Big Black River located 25 miles north of Jackson. There they learned that Vicksburg had surrendered to General U.S. Grant the day before on July 4th. With a large federal force approaching the Confederate troops, Culpepper’s Battery returned to Jackson and set up defenses for the city. After eight days of constant bombardment by General William T. Sherman’s federal artillery, the Confederate army, including Culpepper’s Battery, retreated to Brandon, MS.
     As if the South wasn’t having enough problems with the enemy in the Mississippi, General Braxton Bragg’s Confederate Army of Tennessee had also been chased out of Chattanooga to Lafayette, Georgia by Union General William S. Rosecrans. Culpepper’s Battery having been attached to General Evander McNairs’ Brigade, was sent to support General Bragg at Ringgold, Georgia. Arriving in Ringgold on September 17th, McNair was placed in General Bushrod Johnson’s Division and prepared to engage the enemy on the 18th, 19th and 20th for the confederacy’s greatest victory at the Battle of Chickamauga. At 11:00 a.m. on Sunday, September 20, 1863, Culpepper’s Battery and McNair’s Brigade under the command of General James S. Longstreet, initiated a massive assault that severed the center of the federal Army and forced General Rosecrans’ troops to retreat toward Chattanooga.
     Culpepper’s Battery left the Chickamauga Battlefield on September 23rd and reluctantly returned to Mississippi to confront General William T. Sherman’s army, which was at that time in route from Vicksburg to Jackson and Meridian, MS. While General Sherman’s troops were destroying the town of Meridian, Culpepper’s Battery was reassigned to Mobile, AL. After arriving in Mobile, Culpepper’s Battery patrolled with cavalry units confronting Union troops throughout 1864 and into early 1865.
     In the final days of the war, Culpepper’s Battery was stationed at Fort Blakeley, AL., located in the upper eastern corner of Mobile Bay along the Blakeley and Tensaw Rivers. On April 9, 1865 at 5:30 p.m., 4,000 Confederate troops at Fort Blakeley surrendered to a Union force of 16,000 men. Three hours earlier Lee had surrendered to General Grant at Appomattox. Although the soldiers of Culpepper’s had surrendered, the Union army continued to fire upon them, consequently killing a few men in the Battery. Among those killed was their commander Lt. Joshua L. Moses of Sumter, SC. Lying mortally wounded, his last words were "For God’s sake, save my men they have surrendered". Confederate prisoners from Blakeley were loaded on cattle boats and taken from Mobile Bay to Ship Island, MS. in the Gulf of Mexico. After a few weeks, the imprisoned soldiers of Culpepper’s Battery were taken by cattle boat to New Orleans and from there up the Mississippi River to Vicksburg.
     On May 9, 1865, the troops were paroled from the war at Camp Townsend near Vicksburg and began their long arduous journey home to South Carolina. They traveled mostly by foot. Upon their arrival, they witnessed the destruction of their state and hometowns. The families in Darlington had suffered tremendously and had lost nearly everything. Many decades would pass before the area would recover.6,7,8

Biography* Resolutions: Howe's Springs In Honor of Dr. Culpepper
By J.W. Brunson, Pee Dee Light Artillery

It is with feelings of deep solemnity and sadness that I, as your Vice President, today assume the seat made vacant by the death of your venerable and honored President, Dr. James Culpepper.
The passing of a comrade always intensifies the realization of the strength of that indesoluble tie which, born of common perils and sufferings, must always bind together those who wore the Grey. It carries us back, too, to the long ago, when we eagerly responded to our country's call, filled with high aim of patriotic endeavor and bright aspirations of victory and future glory won, we rallied around that dear banner, which now, though defeated and furled forever, still unconquered, proudly sleeps without a stain upon its sacred folds. As in the days of our fighting, so now we realize that a vacancy in our ranks can never be filled. The death of a comrade also reminds us that the sun of our lives hangs low in the western horizon and admonishes us that soon it must sink beneath the waves of "life's unresting sea."
Seventy-one years ago in the Antioch section of Darlington County James Culpepper was my schoolmate. As a boy he was impetuous but frank and generous, firm but forgiving, quick to resent an insult, but just as quick to acknowledge when he felt himself wrong. There was a parting of our ways. Going to different schools, we drifted apart, he graduating at the Citadel. Just after the first battle of Fort Sumter, I met him on Morris Island and my impression is that he went with us to Virginia in Gregg's First Regiment, S.C.V.. In the summer of "61" he organized a battery of light artillery and served with distinction in the western army for the most part. There his well-handled Napoleons won for himself and his brave command a high reputation for courage and efficiency. I was never with him on the firing line but am told that his courage rose with the tide of battle and at its climax his spirit swelled in that supreme exaltation of soul which cheers only the brave when the missiles come thickest. After the close of the war lie be a successful physician, a profession most congenial to his kind and sympathetic nature. He inherited many of the virtues which adorned the character of his noble father, the Rev. John Culpepper. He had the same fiery spirit, the same generous nature, the same love of truth, the same intolerance of anything which savored of deceit or hypocrisy, the same independence of character, the same unyielding faith in the Redeemer of the world. After a long and useful life, like the fully ripened fruit, lie fell. Death had no terrors for him. "Sustained and soothed by an unfaltering trust, he approached his grave like one who wraps the drapery of his couch about him and lies down to pleasant dreams." Some one has written, "The dead our teachers are"; then surely in the sturdy manhood, the sterling patriotism, the high ideals, the useful life, the Christian character of James Culpepper there is a lesson for the living.
The recent death of the honored and venerable President of this association reminds us that it is the duty as well as the privilege of the living to honor the memory of the worthy dead. The sense of duty is intensified when the relation is that of comrades in arms who have together faced the perils of battle and together suffered the hardships of soldiers' life.
Therefore be it resolved by the Veterans Association of Florence County here assembled,
(1) That the death of our comrade, James Culpepper, marks the passing of a brave Confederate soldier, a patriotic and useful citizen, and Christian gentleman, and adds another knightly name to the long and shining roll of South Carolina's departed chivalry.
(2) That by his fortitude and efficiency in the stormy days of his country's trials, he was an active contributor to the glory which must be forever granted to the Confederate arms, and that during his long life as a citizen, his loyalty to principle and high ideals of patriotic service have reflected honor upon his state and his people.
(3) That, while we, his comrades, feel that we should not mourn when one whose extended life has been so full of honorable years of service to his country and his people passes to his reward, yet our hearts are saddened as we realize that we shall see his face on earth no more.
(4) That our hearts go out in warmest j to the bereaved family.
(5) That these resolutions be inscribed upon the records of this association.

Note*26 Aug 2006 W. Stewart Carter wrote Warren Culpepper:
     "...Susan Govan Rice is my grandmother (on my father's side)...
     I unfortunately never knew much about my father's side of the family as very few of them were around when I was growing up. I know this sounds odd considering I was raised in Dr. Culpepper's family home at 103 Byrd Street in Timmonsville, SC, that his old doctor's office in our backyard was my playhouse, that there were numerous boxes of his old letters and files in our attic for most of my life, that I cleaned the Culpepper / Carter cemetary lot/tombstones every six months growing up, etc. It angers me now that I never took the time to find out the history behind the man and his family.
     "What angers me more when I did decide to start researching following my father's death in 1994, I found that my mother had hired a cleaning crew to empty out the attic and every one of Dr. Culpepper's files/letters was gone.
     "I am curious about much of Dr. Culpepper's(I guess in a way my great grandfather's) life. I know he had three wives with Jennie (Aunt Jennie as I always heard her called) being his last. Does anyone know how his previous wives died? I know they are all in Culpepper / Carter plot in Timmonsville but just wondering what killed them. I also see that he had two sons with his first wife, Mary, and I read somewhere that they were still alive when Mary died. If so, does anyone know what happen to them? If I remember correctly, they are buried in the same family plot. I need to travel to Timmonsville and take pictures of all the tombstones in the plot to send to you. Also, have you heard anyone say what Dr. Culpepper died of? I realize it could have easily been old age as he was an old man in 1917. However, working in the healthcare field and with all this talk about Pandemic Flu, I am wondering if he was a victim of the last big Pandemic Flu that hit late 1917/1918.
     "My list of questions could go on forever as I am beginning to discover that Dr. Culpepper was am remarkable man and that the Culpepper family is truly noble. The only thing that saddens me is that all of Dr. Culpepper's namesakes, my father brother and my brother, died premature deaths.
     "On a final note, I just saw your note about Howard Carter (also listed a time or two as Howard Culpepper). Your note read: 'Research note*: Howard first appeared in the 1920 census as a nephew of Walter Stewart and Susie Govan Carter. In the 1930 census, he was in the same household, but his surname was shown as Culpepper and his relationship as a boarder. Nothing else is known about him. If you can identify this person, please contact Warren Culpepper.'
     "According to what my father told my mother, Howard Carter, came to live with Walter S. and Susan Rice Carter after his mother died. His father could not handle raising a child on his on. He lived with them through school and got married. to a woman named Louise and they had one child Howard, Jr. Howard, Sr. died soon after the birth of Howard, Jr. If I understand correctly, I think Howard, Jr. still lives in Columbia but I have not seen him since my wedding in 1989."20,21

Death*5 Jul 1875 He died at Sumter Co., Alabama, on 5 Jul 1875. 
Research note*14 Jan 2006 Joel Culpepper is presumed to have been a legatee in Joseph Culpepper's 1816 will in Jackson County, GA, as an equal devisee, but was not mentioned by name. Jackson County estate records from the period should be extant, and should be checked for a division of land, a final settlement of the estate, etc, for a list of the names of all of Joseph's children. This might be available from the Georgia Archives, or possibly from the Jackson County courthouse.

Until those documents, if any, can be located, one might ask what evidence there is for the various children of the Joseph Culpepper who died in Jackson County in 1816? Only three children were mentioned in his will, Simeon, Henry, and Sally. And yet he is thought to have had eight or more children.

Those other children are all based for now, as far as this writer knows, on circumstantial evidence.

For example, Joseph's two daughters other than Sarah are attributed to him due to their marriage in Jackson County. Marriages were recorded in the bride's county of residence, and at the time of their marriage there was no other Culpepper family in the county other than the children and widow of Joseph Culpepper.

These daughters also appear as check marks on the 1820 Jackson County census record for Joseph's widow Nancy.

Likewise, the 1820 census indicates that Nancy, widow of Joseph, had four sons living at home, presumed to be Henry, Owen, Joel, and John, who all show up in Jackson County records after 1820, when no other Culpepper family was living in the county. The eldest son, Simeon, a known son from Joseph's will, was himself a head of household in 1820 in Jackson County, Georgia.

It is not clear to this writer which, if any, Jackson County Tax records have survived during the period 1809 to 1836. But if these records are extant, they should be checked for any Culpeppers mentioned. Since 1809 is extant, and available on the Internet, later years mght be available as well. I would suggest contacting the Georgia Archives or the Jackson County Courthouse. Sometimes the tax digest records can be used to establish relationships.

One should note that Joseph Culpepper, the presumed father of Joel, was the only Culpepper whose family stayed in Jackson County over a long period of time. The only other Culpeppers who left an early trace in the county were Malachi Culpepper, who had an early grant there; a Sampson Culpepper, who lived there during 1808 - 1818, and Allison Culpepper, who is mentioned in a couple of deeds. The tax records mentioned above, if any have survived, might pinpoint the exact few years that Allison was there.

Let us begin by noting the earliest proven record of Joel Culpepper in Jackson County. This was his marriage to Amelia / Milly Yarbrough there on 25 Dec 1823. We know that she was the daughter of Joseph Yarbrough (brother of the Rev. Ambrose Yarbrough) and that Joseph and Ambrose were the sons of Jonathan Yarbrough of Anson County, NC (sources can be provided). Note the Yarbrough family connection, as it will be a theme throughout what follows.

This 1823 marriage suggests, at least that Joel Culpepper was a resident of Jackson County, since he married a resident of the county, or else he was from a nearby county. But given the rarity of the Culpepper surname, there were no Culpeppers in any of the surrounding counties at that time. So this particular Joel Culpepper was probably from Jackson County. It was there, at least, that he met and married his bride.

There were several Joel Culpeppers from this time period, all related. The reader must allow me, in the interest of time, to rule out all but two of them. Other than these two who had connections to Jackson County, all the others can be shown to have married someone other than Amelia / Milly Yarbrough, and can be shown to have left records elsewhere than in Jackson County during the time period in question.

As mentioned above, a Sampson Culpepper was living in Jackson County during 1808 - 1818, and he had a son named Joel, born circa 1800. Sampson moved back to Laurens County, GA in 1818, taking his young children with him, including Joel. Sampson appeared on the 1820 census in Laurens County, and a check for son Joel was included in his household. He left a will there in 1822, probated in 1823, mentioning his son Joel. This Joel can only be identified as the Joel Culpepper who moved to Illinois and left descendants there, including a Joel Culpepper Jr. who died in the Mexican War.

While this Joel was only three years older than the Joel who married Ameila Yarbrough, and while he lived in Jackson County, Georgia from 1808 to 1818, as will be shown below, it is easy to distinquish the two Joels from each other. One was closely associated with the children of Joseph (died 1816) and the other (who moved to Illinois) was not.

The 1820 census "checks" showing family members, when compared to wills, distinguish this Sampson of Jackson and Laurens Counties, from the Sampson of Wilkinson County, GA, who is beyond the immediate scope of this discussion.

Since we know the Joel Culpepper who married Amelia / Milly Yarbrough was not the son of Sampson Culpepper, who lived in Jackson County from 1808 to 1818, then what are the other possibilities?

Malachi Culpepper had a Revolutionary War grant in Jackson County, but it is unclear if he ever lived there. He was probably a brother of Joseph Culpepper (died 1816) and Malachi had a son named Joel, who is well documented in Coweta County, GA records.

And then there is Allison Culpepper (circa 1784 - 1854), who is mentioned in an early deed or two in Jackson County. His ancestry has not been firmly established, but he certainly appears to be from this general branch of the family. But he left a detailed will, and did not mention a son named Joel. Nor can any son named Joel be associated with Allison Culpepper by census or other records. For example, all the check marks for sons can be accounted for in Allison's 1820 census record. (Since this commentary was first written, DNA testing of three descendants of Allison Culpepper shows that they are related to each other but not at all to the Culpeppers descending from Joseph of Jackson.)

So we have at least briefly mentioned all the early Culpeppers in Jackson County, with the exception of the family of Joseph Culpepper who died there in 1816.

And we have shown that by process of elimination, the Joel who married Amelia Yarbrough must have been the son of Joseph Culpepper of Jackson County, as there are no other reasonable possibility. All other Joel Culpeppers from the time period can be otherwise accounted for.

So that raises the question, other than the process of elimination, is there any positive evidence to support the theory that this particular Joel was the son of Joseph of Jackson County? And the answer is yes.

To summarize the main points briefly, Joel can be shown to have moved to the Sumter / Lauderdale County area of AL / MS at the same time as the known sons of Joseph: Simeon and Henry: and brother Owen Culpepper as well. Each of these other brothers named a son Joel. Most of the brothers intermarried with the Yarbrough family, which also moved to this area from Jackson County at the same time. And most of the four brothers mentioned had sons or daughters who married their first cousins, the sons and daughters of the other brothers.

In addition, DNA testing has shown that descendants of Simeon and Joel share some unique DNA markers not found in in any of the other mainline Culpeppers. Thus, there is no question that Simeon and Joel are brothers. DNA test results are pending as of 31 Jul 2011 on a descendant of John, who is also believed to be a brother of Simeon and Joel. Probable brothers Henry and Owen have living descendants, but we have not yet found one to join our DNA testing.20

Biography* Ambrose was a Baptist minister. The following biographical details are taken from a memorial written for the Liberty Baptist Church, Lauderdale County, MS:
.
"Elder Ambrose Yarbrough ... was born in Anson County, NC.... At the age of twenty years he moved to Washington County, GA. He remained there two years and was baptized into the fellowship of Buckeye Church.... About the age of twenty-five years he was married to Elizabeth Culpepper, daughter of John and Mary Culpepper.
.
Immediately after his baptism he commenced exercising his gift (to preach) in public. "About the year 1806 he moved to Jackson County, GA, and joined the Kandler Creek Church, and on the 27th day of August 1836 was licensed to preach the Gospel by said church. About the close of the same year he emigrated to Sumter County, AL, and joined Harmony Church, and on October 13th 1839, a presbytery was called... and he was by them ordained to the Gospel ministry. Immediately after his ordination, he was called to take the oversight of churches....
.
"Father Yarbrough was twice married. His second companion's name was Phoebe Holcomb. She departed this life in Sumter County, AL, on the third day of June 1858. We regret that we are not able to state the time of the death of his first companion, or the time of his second marriage...."
.
Ambrose had more children than those listed here, and it is not clear which, if any, may have been by his second wife, Phoebe Holcomb, rather than by Elizabeth Culpepper. Hardy Yarbrough was known to have been the son of Ambrose and Elizabeth.

They moved to west Tennessee in 1822; thence to Mississippi in 1840; thence to Arkansas in 1850, where she died, of a disease of the heart, after an illness of two months, July 1, 1870. She died at the residence of her son Franklin Culpepper, near Pleasant Ridge Academy, Bradley Co. Sister Culpepper was a member of the church near sixty years. She lived to see her youngest son, now twenty-five years old, a minister of the Gospel. She had another son, James Culpepper, who died six years ago, after preaching eighteen or twenty years. Six of her children are now living, all members of the Methodist Episcopal Church South. Surely Sister Culpepper did not live in vain. Hers is truly a religious houselhold. All of her children, as well as some of her grandchildren, are devoted to the service of the Lord. The writer called on her a few days before her departure to the better land. She expressed herself as desiring to depart to that land where the wicked cease from troubling and the weary are forever at rest. H. R. Hamilton."

Biography* Rev. Charles Hartwell Culpepper deserves to be rated among the heroes of our Methodism. He came of sturdy Irish stock. His great grandfather came from Ireland, settled in Virginia, and from him was named Culpepper Court House, in that State.
     (Culpepper Connections Note: Charles is actually a great grandson of Sampson Culpepper, of Georgia, and Sampson is a great-grandson of Henry Culpeper of Lower Norfolk, Virginia. Henry immigrated to America from England, not Ireland, and no Culpepers are known to have come from Ireland. As for Culpeper Court House, it is in the town of Culpeper, in the county of Culpeper, Virginia. Culpeper County was named for either Thomas Lord Culpeper, who was briefly governor of Virginia, or for his wife Margaret Lady Culpeper, or for their daughter, Catherine Culpeper. Lord Culpeper, a second cousin of Henry Culpeper, had no male descendants.)
     His father was a preacher, and came to Arkansas in 1849, settling near where now stands the town or Rison, where C. H. grew up. After the Civil War he moved to Van Buren County, and became a pioneer preacher in all that region. He had a ministry of fifty years, about thirty years of which he traveled. He located in 1900 and died in 1922. This heroic man was a local preacher when he died, and so this sketch, which is all too brief, does not appear in the record of the Conferences. Still, it is important to remember him, for he was a fine example of a very large class of Southern men who came back out of a tragic Civil War with nothing left but the intrinsic manhood that was in them -- faith in God, faith in themselves, faith in hard work; a fine demonstration of the fact that no man can be utterly ruined till he is ruined internally. He came out of a Northern prison, so emaciated that he could scarcely walk; found all in ruin at home; got him an old blind mule; made a crop with this old mule that had to live on grass, without one grain of corn, the master hoeing while the mule grazed; had not a thing for himself to eat except corn meal and not enough of that. But he rose from the ashes, made a good living, builded a church, builded his community, was a power for good in all his area, and went home to heaven, a man 'of whom the world was not worthy.5
