Biography* The following account of Charles Culpepper is from the History of Wilkinson Co, GA, by Victor Davidson, pages 490-492. Comments in brackets were added by Lew Griffin.
     "Unhonored and unsung by historians, his memory forgotten, except by a few, no man ever lived in Wilkinson County who more richly deserves space in this History than does Charles Culpepper.
     "While we have no direct data on the date and place of his birth, yet we have every reason to believe that he was a native of Virginia [he was born in Anson County, NC] . We find him and his brother [more likely, father], Sampson Culpepper, being granted land in Washington County, Georgia, by reason of his [Sampson's] service in the Revolution. Charles [born 1767] was evidently to young to fight in this war. We first find Charles in Georgia as an active Baptist Minister serving in the Hepzibah Association.
     "Mr. Culpepper was married to Rachel, the eldest daughter of that grand old North Carolina patriot, Josiah Warren, who will go down in history as 'The lone horseman from Burke County,' who rode upon the excited scene before the State House at Louisville, Georgia, in 1796 at the very moment when the Yazoo Act was about to be burned, and drawing from his pocket the sun-glass suggested to his friend, Jas. Jackson, that the accursed document be consumed by fire drawn from heaven.
     "Among the earliest settlers of Wilkinson are found three Culpeppers, Charles, his brother Sampson, and Joel (probably also a brother) [this was Joel W. Culpepper, son of David Culpepper and Elizabeth Hogan]. These settled in the vicinity of Toomsboro, the home of Charles being on the lands formerly owned by Dr. N. T. Carswell, now by Geo. H. Carswell, four miles east of Irwinton.
     "Never was a man more thoroughly imbued with the spirit of Missions than was Charles Culpepper. He, it seems was first to realize the tremendous opportunity of the Baptist Church in that vast territory lying between the Oconee and Ocmulgee rivers into which hordes of settlers were literally pouring, clearing the lands and building their homes, a vast region without community centers, clamoring in every settlement for some place of worship, some clearing house for social intercourse to break the monotony of the backwoods.
     "Seizing the opportunity, sometimes with Rev. Shirey as his partner, sometimes with Rev. John Ross, also a Virginian, he began the work of planting churches. Roads were as yet mere trails, but these consecrated men, without pay or hope of reward would select a community where there were already members of the Baptist church, and using these as a nucleus would announce services and invite the neighborhood, and soon a church would be organized. His unceasing activities won for him the approbation of his fellow Baptists. As the churches were organized they were added to the Hepzibah Association, which by reason of its enormous area and number of churches was becoming unwieldy. Thus, in 1814, when the Ebenezer Association was formed at Cool Spring church at Allentown, Charles Culpepper was a leading spirit and now became a member of the Association, which his work in organizing churches had made possible.
     "It was during these years that the question of Missions was beginning to agitate the Baptists. Into this movement he threw his whole being, and in no small way was responsible for the rapid growth of the Missionary idea. The Hepzibah Missionary Society was organized, among the first in Georgia, and Culpepper was made its President. Thus, Charles Culpepper might well be called "The Father of Missions" in Wilkinson County. Through the years that followed he was ever in the forefront leading the missionary elements of the Baptist churches in this section, and in Houston County where he later moved.
     "And not alone as a minister of the Gospel was Charles Culpepper noted. His strength of character, his reputation for honor had so endeared him to the citizens of Wilkinson County, that, when the selection of the county site was to be made, and every effort was being exerted to choose those commissioners to perform this duty who could not be swayed by public opinion or hope of gain, Charles Culpepper was one of those appointed by the legislature.
     "In 1816, he was chosen to represent Wilkinson County in the legislature, serving one term.
     "In 1824, when the educational system of Wilkinson was reorganized, Charles Culpepper was appointed one of the commissioners of the Wilkinson Academy.
     "Culpepper was sought after and took an active interest in all public gatherings. The Fourth of July celebrations sometimes took political turns and the toasts given were often at odds with the political beliefs of Culpepper, who was a strong supporter of the Troupe ticket. However, the toasts which he gave as is recorded in the newspaper accounts of the day, evidence a man of education, culture, and a deep understanding of human nature. They were such as would not antagonize the numerous Clark supporters present, for whose political opinions he showed every respect.
     "It was inevitable that Culpepper should be a Troupe supporter. Not only was it natural for him to align himself with the great mass of his fellow Virginians in Georgia [he was actually from North Carolina], but likewise his wife's father and brothers stood by the party advocated by the Virginians.
     "In 1809, having now moved from Burke County to Laurens, Josiah Warren and his wife both died, leaving several minor children. Culpepper was appointed their guardian and took them to his own home near Irwinton. Having no children of his own, he lavished upon them a father's love, giving them every advantage of an education. Best of all he seems to have transmitted to these orphans that divine spark which animated his whole being. And whether in the ministry, in the laity; whether as lawyers, on the Bench, or as State House officials, these orphans and their descendants have ever since borne the mantle of Charles Culpepper. Though near ninety years have passed since his death [Charles died in 1831], they still revere his memory; his influence still lives."
     The article, which was apparently written around 1921, then goes on to discuss the Warrens.13

Biography* A. D. Searcy, Macon GA gave the following information:

William and Nelly Culpepper are both buried in the O'Neal Private Cemetery in Laurens Co., GA, located near Turkey Creek, East of Dudley, GA. Location of cemetery was given by Hansley Thomas O'Neal, great grandson of William O'Neal who visited the cemetery many times as a young man while hunting on his father's plantation.

William 0'Neals plantation was composed of several thousand acres and the original O'Neal home was constructed between 1807 and 1815. The home was occupied continuously by the descendants of William O'Neal until it was destroyed by fire in 1940. The descendants who lived in the home were Cullen O'Neal, Elliott Cullen O'Neal, Judge Jule B. Greene and his wife, Bette O'Neal Greene.

William O'Neal was evidently a prominent and respected man in Laurens County. He was obviously an educated man and could read and write. He always signed his name on deeds and the ability to read would have been necessary to be a court justice.

The following was taken from Davidson's History of Wilkinson County.

Although an act of 1803 created the county of Wilkinson yet no provision was made for a county organization, the legislators evidently realizing that it would be some time before an organization would be necessary, and thinking that the remainder of the lands to the Ocmulgee (River] would be shortly acquired which would necessitate rearranging county lines. However, the survey of 1804 was made and still the Indians had not ceded the remainder ...The rapid rush of settlers to these lands made necessary some form of government ...0utlaws, criminals who had escaped justice found this a refuge and by these, as well as by the Indians, the families were menaced.

Finally, in December, 1805, the legislature passed an act providing for a county organization. The act named as Justices of the Inferior Court, Samuel Beckton, William Randolph, Lewis Lanier, William O'Neal and Thomas Gilbert. They were directed to select some central place in the county as the site for holding of the superior and inferior courts and to meet there on the first day of April, 1806, to mark out five militia districts, and to nominate two justices of the peace for each militia district. They were directed to fix a date for holding of the first county election, to name the places where the voting should be held and to advertise same...

Wealthy slave-owners attracted by the red lands so suitable for growing cotton, as well as transportation facilities offered by the Oconee and Ocmulgee rivers as arteries of commerce, soon poured into the new lands. Likewise, the lists of the early settlers contain large numbers of veterans of the Revolution. Many of the most prominent men of Georgia found their way here, and helped settle the lands of this county. The plan of cultivation of the lands in many of the older sections of the state had exhausted the fertility of the lands and there was a general exodus of those able to acquire lands here. Frequently large tracts were purchased and whole communities would move and settle on them. There were instances where congregations would follow their pastors here. Hence, Wilkinson County was largely settled by the cream of the citizens of Georgia, as well as of Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina.

William O'Neal was a Tax Collector for Wilkinson County in 1807 and 1808.

It is not known how many of the above descriptions applied to William O'Neal . As will be seen, he was a large landowner in Laurens County, part of which was formed from part of Wilkinson County in 1807. William O'Neal lived in that part. Land records for Wilkinson County were destroyed so no deeds were found for him.

In 1807 William O'Neal of Washington Count was eligible for two draws in the land lottery. He drew a 'prize' and a 'blank'.

On 1 Dec. 1807 William O'Neal of Laurens Co. was deeded land by Tilman Buckner of Baldwin Co. for $200. The land was in Wilkinson Co., 2nd Dist., No. 53. Rec. 22 Apr. 1808.

On 27 Jun. 1808 William O'Neal deeded to Joseph Yarborough 100 1/4 acres in Laurens Co., lot No. 53 in 2nd Dist. of Wilkinson Co. Rec: 3 Sept. 1808.

He was appointed Justice of the Inferior Court of Laurens Co. on 30 Dec. 1807, 27 Oct. 1813 and 20 Nov. 1817. He was State Representative from Laurens Co. in 1812, 1813 and 1814.

On 25 Jul. 1809, William O'Neal, Esqr., was deeded 202 1/2 acres from Peter Thomas of Laurens Cc for $800. in 2nd Dist. of Wilkinson Co., No. 28, drawn by Elizabeth Wood of Bulloch Co. and granted to her on 22 Jan. 1806. /s/ Peter Thomas, Wit: Barnett G. Thomas, James Thompson.

On 16 May 1810, William O'Neal was deeded 157 acres from John Green for $350 in 2nd Dist. of Wilkinson Co., Lot No. 377 granted to John Green on 8 Nov. 1807. /s/ John Green, Wit: James (+) Thomas, Jos. Yarborough.

On 4 May 1811, William O'Neal of Laurens Co. deeded to John Arline of Washington, Co. 200 acres in Washington Co. for $200, originally granted to Joel Reas on Big Creek 20 Sept. 1786 and deed to W. O'Neal 14 Mar. 1800. /s/ Wm. O'Neal. Wit: Hollida (H) Sauls, James (X) Ressell.

This deed shows that William O'Neal was in the area as early as 1800 and was probably living in Washington Co. Since a man had to be 21 years old to own land, this indicates that he was born on or before 1779. Since the family Bible reported his date of birth as 1777, he was a very young man when he bought the land.

On 4 Mar. 1815, William O'Neal of Laurens Co. and Charles Culpepper of Wilkinson Co., adm. of estate of Thomas Fort, apply for leave to sell 200 acres for $605 on Buckeye Creek. /s/ William O'Neal, Charles Culpepper. (Charles Culpepper was William's brother-in-law.)

William O'Neal was listed on the 1820 Census of Laurens Co. which showed a wife and seven children, five sons and two daughters:

1 male 26-45 (b. 1775-1794]
1 male 16-26 (b. 1794-1804]

A mention is made of William O'Neal in The Official History of Laurens County Georgia by Hart:

Through the (eighteen) Twenties and Thirties large plantations of cotton had been developed in the northern part of the County by Governor George M. Troup, Jeremiah Yopp .... William O'Neal ...

He was a large landowner in the county. There were many deeds where he bought land that were not abstracted.

William O'Neal died in 1826 in Laurens County at 49 years of age while three of his sons were still minors. He made his will on 29 Mar. 1826 and it was probated on 15 May 1826. He mentions 'being in a low state of health.' In the will he names his wife, Nelly; his "son-in-law and very dear friend," Benjamin W. Hampton; and his sons Mastin, Cullen, William, Eliot Love and Edmund Love, the three latter being minors. He gave each son and his son-in-law a bridle and saddle 'worth at least $150,' and nothing else! He left his estate to his wife during her widow-hood and if she died or remarried the estate was to be sold and the proceeds divided between his children. It seems strange that he would want to break up his estate and not leave it to his children. The executors were Benjamin W. Hampton, Sampson Culpepper and Eli Warren. The estate remained intact until about 1849.

Eleanor O'Neal was not listed on the 1830 Census but she was listed on the 1840 Census of Laurens Co. living very near her sons Cullen and Mastin G.:

Eleanor O'Neal 60-70 (b. 1760-1770]

female 20-30 (b. 1810-1820]

Eleanor O'Neal was listed on the 1850 Mortality Schedule for Laurens Co. Her age was listed as 72, born in North Carolina, died July 1849, a widow, ill for seven days and died of fever.

On 10 Sept. 1849 Cullen O'Neal and William W. O'Neal, administrators, were ordered to inventory and appraise the personal estate of the late William O'Neal. This was done as of 1 Jan. 1850. Included in the inventory were 39 slaves which indicates a large plantation operation. The balance of the inventory consisted of household furniture and tools.

In 1853 the administrators reported estate expenditures of $6939.47 and an increase in value of $5014.18, which the court approved. In Dec. 1853 the court approved the dismissal of the administrators. 
Researcher*30 Mar 2012 Annie Ondrovic wrote on 30 Mar 2012:
     "William O'Neal and Elinor Culpepper O'Neal were my GGG grandparents. Have been working on my family history and have traced things back to an Ida O'Neal who owned the property where the old plantation house stood. The property is now owned by the Suttons of Laurens co. Ga. I live in Laurens Co. Any Information you have of the original tract owned by William (B. 1777 D. 1826 ) would be of great interest to me. Also I'm trying to find any Info on A William O'Neal who married Dolly. (This William was born 1756.) There is a gentleman by the name of Jule B. Green ...the son of Bette ( Elizabeth ) O'Neal. Her Father was Elliott Cullen O'Neal. He turns 90 this year and remembers the old plantation home when he was a boy of about 5-6 years old. At one time there were about 4000 acres involved. My Grandfather lived off the old Macon Road and I am trying to find out if his property was a part of the original plantation land."2

Biography* BIG SANDY MISSIONARY BAPTIST CHURCH
According to the membership roll it was organized in 1809. Male members who constituted the church were Elijah Hammack, a minister, Jesse Pierce, wife Winnie Lee, Moses Justice, wife Sallie Goodson, Richrad Smith (this may have been Richard Williams), Daniel Hooks, George Martin and Thomas Hughs. Women who helped in the organization were: Alcy Hammack, wife of the minister, Elizabeth Pierce, a widow, nee Roberts, Clarissa Williams, Agnes Smith, widow or wife of James, perhaps nee Culpepper, Elizabeth Keel, Rchael Hooks, wife of Daniel, and Elvina Hughs. Following a dispute over the Missions and Reforms, many of its members went over to the Pleasant Plains and Mount Olive Churches and possibly other Primitive Baptist Churches. Big Sandy has remained in the Missionary Baptist Association and is located in the south portion of the county in a populous community. It is active today (1978)....

     In Agnes Smith's estate papers, Jessie Ashley and Ephraim Hightower also signed. Jessie Ashley m. Lucye Smith, whose father was John Smith, brother to James Smith, Sr. Agnes was guardian for Lucye Smith after her father, John Smith, died in 1819. Who Ephraim Hightower married, I don't know. It could have been a daughter by either of James Smith Sr's marriages or another daughter of John Smith, brother to James Smith Sr., for whom Agnes could have been a guardian. Nowhere in Agnes ' estate papers does she make reference to Belinda or a guardian for Belinda Smith.

     John Gilmartin wrote in October 2007 that according to the death certificate for Susan Hightower Millican (died in Hood County, Texas circa 1915), she was the daughter of Ephraim Hightower and Annie Smith."1,2

James Smith

Male, #3997, (say 1757 - 1818)
Birth*say 1757 James was born say 1757.1 
Marriage*say 1779 He married Agnes Scott say 1779.1 
Birth of Soncirca 1780 His son James Smith Jr. was born circa 1780.1 
Marriage*27 Jan 1790 He married Eleanor Barnett at Richmond Co., Georgia, on 27 Jan 1790.1 
Marriage*circa 1801 He married Agnes Culpepper at Georgia circa 1801. Children:
     1. John Smith, b. 1803, d. after 1860, m. Eliza Chewing
     2. Addie Smith, b. abt 1807, m. Benjamin Henderson.1 
Death*1818 He died at Wilkinson Co., Georgia, in 1818. 
Biography* James was married 3 times:
     1st wife. Not sure. It could have been an Agnes Scott. It may not have been. The birth of his sons, James and Alan, indicate they were already born by the time he married his second wife.
     2nd wife. Eleanor Barnett (her married name). Eleanor was wife of Jesse Barnett. Jesse died by 5/12/1789 and left her with 3 children - Linsey, Elizabeth, and Jesse. James Smith m. Eleanor 1/27/1790 in Richmond County, Georgia. Sept. 26, 1790, he applied for guardianship of the children in Richmond County. Was Eleanor deceased by then? Whatever happened, it looks like Elizabeth, Linsey and Jesse were raised as Smiths, along with his sons James and Alan from his first marriage.
     3rd wife. Agnes Culpepper. Children with her were John and Addie

Before James Sr. died, he became guardian for his brother John's daughter, Lucy. By the time Agnes died, Jesse Smith was not around. His name is not mentioned in Agnes' estate. So I'm not sure whether he died earlier or just left the family when he came of age and went out on his own. However, there is a Jesse Smith in the census of Wilkinson County.

So the final count of the children is 7: James, Allan, Elizabeth, Linsey, John, Addie and Lucy.

This accounts for all the signatures on Agnes' estate paper, except for one. James Smith, Allan Smith, John Davidson who m. Linsey, William Smith who signed for Eliz. who must have been a widow by then or else her husband would have signed for her, Jesse Ashely who m. Lucy Smith, John Smith, and Benjamin Henderson who m. Addie Smith. However there is also an Ephraim Hightower who signed the estate paper. Who did he marry? An unknown daughter of James' first marriage or did James and Agnes have a 3rd daughter we don't know about? Or did they take in and become guardians for another orphaned child?

Belinda Smith was always thought to be James and Agnes' daughter. But she wasn't. She was appointed executor to James Smith, Jr's estate along with a John Smith, most likely James' son. Which means she was either his daughter or his wife at the time of his death.

There was a very interesting comment about all the heirs - "They shared equally". Why would this even be said if all the children belonged to Agnes? So I take this to mean all the children were not born of her and James Smith. Not only that, looking at the census birth range on shows that James, Alan, Elizabeth and Linsey were born before James even married Agnes.

Another interesting thing to note. John was appointed executor of Agnes' estate. Reason? He was her only son.1 
Research note* Being a descendant of James Smith who married Agnes Culpepper, I searched long and hard to try to find proof of how many wives, and who they were, he had prior to Agnes Culpepper... There has been a great deal of speculation and incorrect assumption on this topic.

One example subject to question is the position many take that "our James Smith" is the same James Smith as married Eleanor Barnett, widow of Jesse Barnett, in Columbia County, GA at some point after Jesse's death in 1790. The James who married Eleanor was appointed guardian for three children of Jesse and Eleanor Barnett in Sept. of 1790 - the three children were daughters named Louisa, Elizabeth and Jesse. In this line of speculation, James is thought to have "adopted" the Barnett children and the fact that the names are similar to the names of two daughters of "our James Smith" (Louisa, mistaken for Linsey, and Elizabeth) makes a convincing case for many. However, my further research has uncovered various deeds and other legal documents of record in Columbia County that establish that Louisa Barnett married Hezekiah Bealle of Columbia County and Elizabeth Barnett married Allen Lovelace in Columbia County, and both couples continued to live in Columbia County long after "our James" is in Wilkinson County with his own daughters named Linsey and Elizabeth. So, it is possible that the James Smith who married Eleanor Barnett is "our James" - however, the Barnett daughters are not the same as Linsey and Elizabeth Smith, our James's daughters (Linsey Smith married a Davidson and Elizabeth Smith married Joab Tison). This entire overview makes me somewhat skeptical that the James Smith who married Eleanor Barnett is "our James."

The following is from a book by Pearl Baker on Columbia County, GA - Early Court Records that provides the first evidence of Hezekiah Beal and Allen Lovelace being connected to Jesse Barnett. My further research found ample examples that they were married to Louisa and Elizabeth Barnett.

The following is from The History of Macon County by Louise Frederick Hays, Page 141:
.
The Houston Association prospered moderately well until the question of missions came up among them. On this subject the churches, eighteen in number, took opposite sides. Nine were for holding on to the old platform, and an equal number assumed an opposite attitude, and decided that all Societies for Benevolent objects were unscriptural in their construction and injurious in their tendency. The 1836 session was held with Beulah Church again. Joseph Culpepper had been appointed the previous year to write the circular letter for this session. That the topic chosen by him had already been in controversy is disclosed in the first few lines of his letter, the recording that he "handed in the following essay." He says, "We have selected a subject which heretofore has been made controversial, but not with a desire to promote controversy but with a hope to allay it." He then proceeds to make a wonderful plea for Missions, which minutes show "being read and much discussion had thereon was rejected."
