My source (grandmother), has Reuben married 3 times. Hannah Culpepper was first, then she died. Sarah E. Sewell was #2, but the split up and Margaret Price was #3. With Margaret (and I maybe spelling her name wrong), he fathered Medard in 1880, Belle in 1883, Lee in 1885, Minnie Alice in 1888 and Laura in 1890. All were born in Chattooga County, GA.

Reuben had 15 children from all 3 marriages. Minnie Alice is my great-grandmother.6

Biography* Lawrence Decatur Chisenhall (1856-1921), one of five children of William Delaney Chisenhall and Sallie Reed of Alabama, and Virginia Ann Culpepper (1855-1927), one of 17 children of John Tyler Culpepper and Melvina Baker from Virginia, later Alabama, were married in Alabama in the middle 1870's, and as bride and groom traveled by train to Dallas, Texas. They were met there by friends, and went by horse and wagon to Marystown, Texas which was a township about seven miles south of Burleson. There they settled on 40 acres with a mule and began farming. Along with farming, Lawrence Chisenhall later built and operated a cotton gin in Marystown. There were ten children born from this union: Grace, Walter Delaney, Martin Brown, Marble Gertrude, Tollie Myrtle, Vera Mae, Sallie Lee, Willie Josephine, Lawrence Fletcher, and Mary Adlai (Cricket was her nickname, and the name she was always known by). The Chisenhalls were busy people. The family moved to Burleson in 1900 where the six younger children attended Burleson School. They bought a 230 acre farm about two miles south of Burleson which remains in the family. Part of this land was sold to the City of Burleson for a park which bears the Chisenhall name. The Chisenhalls also purchased land and built a home around 1901 at the corner of Bransom and Renfro Streets. That home was lived in for two separate periods of several years each by two of the grandsons, Winston Francis Taylor and his family, and Jack Chisenhall Taylor and his family. In 1964 it was moved to make room for the Burleson Post Office, and still is being lived in at 225 South Warren. In the early 1900's Lawrence Chisenhall founded a flour mill in Burleson, and called it Powder Puff Flour. This does seem an appropriate name since seven of their ten children were girls! Listed below are the ten Chisenhall children and those that they married: Grace married George Durham from Marystown; Walter D. married Mattie from Baird, TX; Martin B. married Edna Gordon from Burleson; Mable married James J. Walker from the Burleson-Everman area; Tollie married Charles Calhoun Taylor from Burleson; Vera married Claude W. Norton from Fort Worth; Sallie died at a young age; Willie married J. Grover Hackney from Burleson; Fletcher married Neltz Coleman from Ardmore, OK; "Cricket" married John D. Watkins from Tacoma, WA. At this writing, 1980, Willie Chisenhall Hackney is living and healthy in her 91st year, as well as John D. Watkins, "Cricket's" husband, who is in his 88th year. Shirley Taylor Miles.

Birth*circa 1815 Susannah was born at South Carolina circa 1815.

Birth of Soncirca 1854 Her son George R. Branton was born circa 1854 at Lawrence Co., Mississippi
Birth of Soncirca 1856 Her son James Branton was born circa 1856 at Lawrence Co., Mississippi

Death of Father27 Jan 1860 Her father Benjamin Culpepper of Attala Co. MS died on 27 Jan 1860 at Attala Co., Mississippi.3 
Death*15 Apr 1875 She died at Homer, Angelina Co., Texas, on 15 Apr 1875. 
Biography* The following is from Beth Hillis of Magnolia TX (22 Jun 1996): Susannah married Arnold Branton, a son of Maturin Branton of Whiteville, Columbus Co. NC. Arnold left NC with an older brother, Ephraim Branton and his wife, Susannah Tatum, after the 1830 census, arriving in MS around 1834. An older brother, Reddick Branton, had left NC several years earlier and settled in MS. Arnold apparantly met and married Susannah Culpepper there in February of 1837 - they sold some land in July of 1838, then apparantly continued on their westward journey. Some of the Branton boys settled in Dale Co. AL with their families, but Reddick, Arnold and Ephraim continued west. Reddick died after 1840 and before 1850 in Lawrence Co. MS. Arnold and Ephraim were in Liberty, Ouichita Co. AR by 1845 as indicated by tax records. Ephraim stayed in Liberty, Ouichita Co. AR. where he died in 1857. Arnold and Susannah settled in Homer, Angelina Co., TX around 1850. Records indicated that they lived there until at least, 1870. I have not found any records of either of them after the 1870 census, nor have I found a grave site for either one of them. The family bible states that Susannah C. Branton died in 1875 - no mention of her husband, Arnold. Arnold served as a Judge and also Postmaster for the town of Homer, TX for many years, as well as being a farmer. His brother, Reddick, who lived in Lawrence Co. MS, was also a judge as I found many documents that had been recorded in that county with his name affixed thereon as the Judge. All records I have found on the Brantons in NC indicated that they were all very active in the local politics and matters in the court. They left a nice paper trail in NC.

Biography* From Peggy Gresham, March 2004:
"My great grandfather, Bailey Oliver married Syntha Susie Culpepper, daughter of Benjamin R. Culpepper and Mary Mason. Bailey Oliver was married in Washington Cty. NC to Elizabeth Furlough/Furlaugh and had a son Alexander Bailey Oliver and a daughter Mary Jane Oliver (my great grandmother). Bailey's first wife died and he migrated to Mississippi where he married Syntha Susie Culpepper and had 3 sons, William Nathan, Henry Daniel, and James W. Oliver (James died at the age of 3). After Syntha's death in 1885, Bailey married Mary Elizabeth Sartin Stephens and they had one daughter Daisy Viola Oliver.

The R in Benjamin, Syntha Susie, and the Henry Bailey Oliver were given to me by family. However, in all of my researching I have only found Benjamin Culpepper (with no middle initial), Syntha S. and Bailey Oliver .... Syntha S. tombstone only gives Syntha S. wife of B. Oliver. His tombstone only gives Bailey Oliver. I did not find Benjamin Culpepper's tombstone but have been told that he is buried in Jerusaleum Cemetery also.

As for marriage license for Bailey's three wives, I have not been able to find them. The courhouses in NC burned and I have found no record nor have I found any records in Mississippi. At the Attala courthouse they told me many of their records had burned also.

I do have notes and letters from many of the Olivers to Mary Jane. I know that my grandmother, Mary Jane Oliver Sparkman was rasied by her grandparents in NC until about 1868 when Bailey went back to NC to get her and her brother, Alexander Bailey Oliver. They were in the 1870 census of Attala County (Mary Jane was on the 1860 census with her grandparents, Joseph and Arphia/Arphy Furlough/Furlaugh. Her brother Alexander Bailey was in Nathan Oliver's household (Bailey's brother)."1
