News Article*28 May 2000 Hilton Culpepper finds grave in France of veteran father he never met

DEXTER - He had seen the old photographs, heard the old stories. Then, after more than 50 years, Hilton Culpepper Jr. went to face the father he never knew.

There, across the same thousands of miles of ocean his father crossed a half-century before, he stood, surrounded by 10,000 white crosses. He found the one that bore the name "Hilton Culpepper."

Hilton Culpepper Sr. died March 16, 1945, on a battlefield in France near the German border, two months before his son was born.

Three years ago, Hilton Culpepper Jr., 55, finally made the trip he had put off for years. He traveled to Lorraine Cemetery where his father and 10,488 other U.S. soldiers are buried.

"To see your name on a tombstone, to see him out there with all those thousands, you think, 'They're all kids,'" Culpepper remembered. "There are no old people in that cemetery. You think, 'Man, what a waste.'"

Culpepper's father was a 21-year-old private in the 142nd Battalion of the 36th Infantry Division. He had been in France for about a month when he and other soldiers from his battalion were given their last orders - to cross the Moder River into Germany.

"For a kid from Caldwell, Ga., a farm boy who had probably never been any farther than the beach in Florida, to wind up dead and buried in France, I'm sure he could never have imagined anything like that," Culpepper said.

His father went most of the war undrafted, but the letter finally came late in 1944.

"He was the baby of the family," Culpepper said, "so I guess the draft board sort of left him alone until then."

Hilton Culpepper Sr. left for the Army the day after Christmas, with his wife about four-months pregnant. He never came back.

"My mother told me the last time she saw him was when she put him on the train in Eastman," Culpepper said.

In April, Culpepper, an assistant civil engineer for Air Force Reserve Command at Robins, traveled again to Lorraine Cemetery. This time, he took his daughter Holly, 27, and son Greg, 24.

"My children know now that they do indeed have a grandfather," he said.

Culpepper, a history and World War II buff, said he has visited Arlington National Cemetery, the cemetery in Hendersonville and several others. None impressed him like Lorraine, he said.

The cemetery was deeded to the United States and is kept in "absolutely immaculate" condition, Culpepper said. Officials use computerized records to find specified plots for visiting families, who then are taken to the sites by golf cart. Family members are given an American flag to place on the graves.

The crosses in the cemetery are so white that the names on the markers will not normally show up in photographs, Culpepper said.

To fix that, cemetery officials have sand shipped in from the beaches at Normandy, where so many American soldiers lost their lives in the D-Day invasion.

"They take that golden sand and rub it into the letters, then you can take the pictures and read the letters," said Culpepper.

The cemetery serves as a symbol of sacrifice made by the fallen soldiers buried there, he said.

"There are pilots out there, plain old dog-faces, colonels and captains. There are three or four women buried out there. It's a cross-section of all America had to offer," he said. "You think, 'They gave everything.' There's not much more you can give than that.

"I think sometimes we tend to forget what those people did. Some of them got to come back, and some of them weren't so lucky."

A few years after the war, the family had the opportunity to bring his father's body home. Culpepper's mother wanted to, but her second husband, W.C. Barrs, a World War II and D-Day veteran, talked her out of it.

"He said he had gone through the war. He sort of understood that was where my father needed to be. He said if it was him, he would have wanted to stay."

Both his mother and stepfather are deceased, but Culpepper still thanks them for making the right decision.

"I always thought (not bringing the body home) was a mistake," he said. "I thought if he was home, I could visit him whenever I wanted. Once I got over there and saw the cemetery, there was no doubt in my mind that was where he needed to be," he said.

"Those American flags are always flying there, sort of Memorial Day year-round."7

Perry, his mother is shown as Molly Baum which adds yet another marriage for James A. Perry. Andrew was born 28 Oct 1849, so if the info about his mother is correct, she must have died shortly after his birth, because James A. Perry was already married to Eliza Forehand when the census was taken 21 Sep 1850.)1

Biography* On May 27, 2005, Cynthia I. Nason wrote:

"My Great-Grandmother NASON"s half-sister Frances V. PERRY married Thomas Albert CULPEPPER. I thought that you might be interested in some information about Frances's background & have a minor correction to your documentation. Her father, James A. PERRY, did not die in 1883. The reason that Thomas CULPEPPER is named guardian to his wife is because she inherited from her mother's father, Solomon FOREHAND, who died 23 Feb 1873 in Macon Co, GA (he lived in the Traveler's Rest area). Eliza FOREHAND PERRY died 1 Jun (I have three different years for her death date--probably 1869 is the correct one). I think that she & one of their children are buried in Slade Cemetery in Crisp Co.

James A. PERRY was married several times. Frances is the daughter of James A. PERRY & his first wife, the daughter of Solomon FOREHAND & Annie MCCREARY. James A. PERRY died 20 Jun 1893 in what is now Crisp Co, GA.

There were two James PERRYs in the area, both of about the same age. My ancestor was usually referred to as James A., rather than just James PERRY. James A. is buried at Ebenezer, right behind the church, not far from the CULPEPPERs, in Crisp Co. (His second wife was my ancestor, & she died young, before 1890.) The surviving wife, Sarah "Sally" --third or fourth one!--apparently got most of the estate, supposedly cheated the children by the first two marriages but don't have evidence for that!

Below are the census entries on Frances (in the 1880, my ancestor is Leotis or Lee Otis, as she was later known).
