Biography*19 May 2010 Kathleen Bucher wrote the following:

Hi - was just browsing on the internet and would like to update you a bit on what I know about Edward Pilate Culpepper and his wife, Louise Robbins.

Though I'm not a "real" Culpepper, this wonderful couple "reared" me from the time I was 2 weeks old.

I know Edward had 2 wives, Louise was his second. From his first wife, he had two sons, but quite limited contact with them after leaving the marriage. Details were never explained to me...

He was born in Shorterville, Henry Co., Alabama. I believe he married Essie Louise Robbins Culpepper (née Oct 27, 1903) about 1927 (sometime in May, I believe). They went to Havana, Cuba on their honeymoon, and Louise's mother went with them. (I am still trying to convince my daughter of what a great idea this is, but she remains skeptical!) Louise Robbins Culpepper was the daughter of John McCleary Robbins, a state senator from Tennessee, and her mother was an Armstrong. For a long time, they did not tell her parents of Edward's divorced status, and I don't think they ever knew his real age. Your site mentioned he was called Pila, but I know in later years, everyone referred to him as "Pep". He was always Daddy Pep to me.

Edward and Louise also reared a boy named James who took the name of Culpepper, though he was never legally adopted. Jimmy married a woman named Carolyn who had worked for Louise and Edward at the drug store they ran at the bottom of Lookout Mountain in Chattanooga, TN. They had two daughters, Lynn (ca. 53 now) and Alison (ca. 48 now). Not sure if Carolyn is still alive, but Jimmy passed about 5 years ago.

Edward died about Dec. 1985, and Louise about May 1986, both in Jacksonville, Florida at the St. Catherine Laboure Manor. The death certificates are available from the Fla. Census/Statistics Dept. where Edward is mistakenly listed as an infant, as he was 101 when he died.

Just as a fun anecdote, Edward lied about his age all of his life. Whenever insurance people would come over, he would sneak them notes telling them his real age, trying to keep it from Louise. As if she never learned how old he really was!

He taught Physics, Math and Engineering at several schools in the south, even up to the time he was in his 80's, and that was another reason he kept mum about his age. Louise had children's nurseries throughout the south: in Florida (Altamonte Springs and Jacksonville) as she could not have children of her own. This fulfilled her great need to be around young people, something they continued all of their lives.

They were wonderful people and I miss them both immensely.

Thanks for keeping this site going. It was a wonderful trip down nostalgia lane for me.

Kind regards,
Kathleen Bucher.2 
Biography2 Jul 2010 Kathleen Bucher wrote with a followup to her message of 19 May 2010:

I need to clarify something - as I mentioned before, Louise had a children's nursery in Altamonte Springs, Florida. I was a premature two-week-old baby when my parents (father physician, mother nurse) opened their own private practice in Casselberry. They wanted to place my brother and me in her nursery during their office hours. Louise took one look at me and said, "Oh, I don't take babies so young." My father said, "Oh, she's really 9 months old, just small for her age." Louise had a worker, Ines Kirkland, who said, "Oh Mrs. Culpepper, please let her stay. I'll take care of her." That sealed my fate. While most children cried when they were taken to day care, I cried when I had to go home. I vividly remember one night pleading to be able to hug Daddy Pep goodnight. I hugged and hung on with all my might. He didn't have the heart to tear me away and my parents were all too happy not to have a screaming toddler at home.

I came into their lives when Louise was 57 and I was the daughter they never had. (Her words, not mine.) I spent as much time as I could with them. I never really bonded with my own mother, but my father and I are very close. When my parents divorced, we moved to Jacksonville just to be near Edward and Louise. So this is what I mean when I say they reared me. During summers, Louise and I would go spend time wherever Daddy Pep was teaching. Louise was always on the refreshment committee of any social event. She was an amazingly organized woman, and I never saw her flustered by preparations.

They moved from Altamonte Springs to Jacksonville to be closer to her family (in North and South Carolina), but especially to "really" retire. It wasn't a year before Louise had opened up another children's nursery. She eventually sold it, and another year went by, and people kept begging her just to take their child, and yet another nursery, albeit smaller, was born. And after she sold that one, she continued to take care of a few special children. Daddy Pep always made the most wonderful tree houses for us to play in. I am talking enormous 3-story (ok, I was a kid, but they were really big and really 3-story) and Louise always had a garage full of clothes and costume jewelry for us to dress up in. She was forever chauffeuring kids back and forth to swimming, ballet, museums, children's theater productions, etc.

Sometimes she would take me "visiting" with her. Whenever there was a piano in the house, I would beg to play. I hounded her for years to buy me a piano as my own mother wouldn't. They took me to a music store and wanted to buy me an accordion, just something small to start with to see if I was musically inclined. I said I only wanted a piano. I got my piano. As my mother was opposed to anything coming from Louise, Louise had to make it look like it was payment for an outstanding bill and she had absolutely no room for a piano, and would my mother please do her a big favor and take the piano off her hands...

She was quite the schemer. When they moved to Jacksonville, I came up one week-end and was talking to her in the kitchen. I saw something sticking out from the hall. She had bought me a piano for their house in Jacksonville because she knew how much I loved to play. Daddy Pep loved "She Wore Blue Velvet" and every time I would play it for him, he would laugh and chuckle and say, "I didn't know you knew that." Daddy Pep and I also played a duet, and I am just now remembering that as I write this. (Amazingly, my son is quite talented musically and he and I also play duets on the piano. I still have that first piano they bought me, it is now at my father's house in Colorado, and my son plays it.) Daddy Pep loved doing the Charleston and he taught it to me when I was about 8 years old.

Other anecdotes I remember: Every night after dinner, Daddy Pep and I would go for a walk while Louise cleaned the kitchen. He would have his long stick (to keep away bad dogs), and off we would go, hand-in-hand. He gave me the moon. He would point up to it and ask, "Whose moon is that?" I would, of course, answer, "That's my moon!" He would chuckle and say, "That's right."

When the astronauts were planning to land on the moon, he wrote me a letter and said, "Those astronauts are about to land on your moon!" It is quite ironic that my son wants to be an astronaut. Perhaps because the moon is already taken (by me, of course), he wishes to go to Mars.2

Biography*19 May 2010 Kathleen Bucher wrote the following:

Hi - was just browsing on the internet and would like to update you a bit on what I know about Edward Pilate Culpepper and his wife, Louise Robbins.

Though I'm not a "real" Culpepper, this wonderful couple "reared" me from the time I was 2 weeks old.

I know Edward had 2 wives, Louise was his second. From his first wife, he had two sons, but quite limited contact with them after leaving the marriage. Details were never explained to me...

He was born in Shorterville, Henry Co., Alabama. I believe he married Essie Louise Robbins Culpepper (née Oct 27, 1903) about 1927 (sometime in May, I believe). They went to Havana, Cuba on their honeymoon, and Louise's mother went with them. (I am still trying to convince my daughter of what a great idea this is, but she remains skeptical!) Louise Robbins Culpepper was the daughter of John McCleary Robbins, a state senator from Tennessee, and her mother was an Armstrong. For a long time, they did not tell her parents of Edward's divorced status, and I don't think they ever knew his real age. Your site mentioned he was called Pila, but I know in later years, everyone referred to him as "Pep". He was always Daddy Pep to me.

Edward and Louise also reared a boy named James who took the name of Culpepper, though he was never legally adopted. Jimmy married a woman named Carolyn who had worked for Louise and Edward at the drug store they ran at the bottom of Lookout Mountain in Chattanooga, TN. They had two daughters, Lynn (ca. 53 now) and Alison (ca. 48 now). Not sure if Carolyn is still alive, but Jimmy passed about 5 years ago.

Edward died about Dec. 1985, and Louise about May 1986, both in Jacksonville, Florida at the St. Catherine Laboure Manor. The death certificates are available from the Fla. Census/Statistics Dept. where Edward is mistakenly listed as an infant, as he was 101 when he died.

Just as a fun anecdote, Edward lied about his age all of his life. Whenever insurance people would come over, he would sneak them notes telling them his real age, trying to keep it from Louise. As if she never learned how old he really was!

He taught Physics, Math and Engineering at several schools in the south, even up to the time he was in his 80's, and that was another reason he kept mum about his age. Louise had children's nurseries throughout the south: in Florida (Altamonte Springs and Jacksonville) as she could not have children of her own. This fulfilled her great need to be around young people, something they continued all of their lives.

They were wonderful people and I miss them both immensely.

Thanks for keeping this site going. It was a wonderful trip down nostalgia lane for me.

Kind regards,
Kathleen Bucher.1 
Biography2 Jul 2010 Kathleen Bucher wrote with a followup to her message of 19 May 2010:

I need to clarify something - as I mentioned before, Louise had a children's nursery in Altamonte Springs, Florida. I was a premature two-week-old baby when my parents (father physician, mother nurse) opened their own private practice in Casselberry. They wanted to place my brother and me in her nursery during their office hours. Louise took one look at me and said, "Oh, I don't take babies so young." My father said, "Oh, she's really 9 months old, just small for her age." Louise had a worker, Ines Kirkland, who said, "Oh Mrs. Culpepper, please let her stay. I'll take care of her." That sealed my fate. While most children cried when they were taken to day care, I cried when I had to go home. I vividly remember one night pleading to be able to hug Daddy Pep goodnight. I hugged and hung on with all my might. He didn't have the heart to tear me away and my parents were all too happy not to have a screaming toddler at home.

I came into their lives when Louise was 57 and I was the daughter they never had. (Her words, not mine.) I spent as much time as I could with them. I never really bonded with my own mother, but my father and I are very close. When my parents divorced, we moved to Jacksonville just to be near Edward and Louise. So this is what I mean when I say they reared me. During summers, Louise and I would go spend time wherever Daddy Pep was teaching. Louise was always on the refreshment committee of any social event. She was an amazingly organized woman, and I never saw her flustered by preparations.

They moved from Altamonte Springs to Jacksonville to be closer to her family (in North and South Carolina), but especially to "really" retire. It wasn't a year before Louise had opened up another children's nursery. She eventually sold it, and another year went by, and people kept begging her just to take their child, and yet another nursery, albeit smaller, was born. And after she sold that one, she continued to take care of a few special children. Daddy Pep always made the most wonderful tree houses for us to play in. I am talking enormous 3-story (ok, I was a kid, but they were really big and really 3-story) and Louise always had a garage full of clothes and costume jewelry for us to dress up in. She was forever chauffeuring kids back and forth to swimming, ballet, museums, children's theater productions, etc.

Sometimes she would take me "visiting" with her. Whenever there was a piano in the house, I would beg to play. I hounded her for years to buy me a piano as my own mother wouldn't. They took me to a music store and wanted to buy me an accordion, just something small to start with to see if I was musically inclined. I said I only wanted a piano. I got my piano. As my mother was opposed to anything coming from Louise, Louise had to make it look like it was payment for an outstanding bill and she had absolutely no room for a piano, and would my mother please do her a big favor and take the piano off her hands...

She was quite the schemer. When they moved to Jacksonville, I came up one week-end and was talking to her in the kitchen. I saw something sticking out from the hall. She had bought me a piano for their house in Jacksonville because she knew how much I loved to play. Daddy Pep loved "She Wore Blue Velvet" and every time I would play it for him, he would laugh and chuckle and say, "I didn't know you knew that." Daddy Pep and I also played a duet, and I am just now remembering that as I write this. (Amazingly, my son is quite talented musically and he and I also play duets on the piano. I still have that first piano they bought me, it is now at my father's house in Colorado, and my son plays it.) Daddy Pep loved doing the Charleston and he taught it to me when I was about 8 years old.

Other anecdotes I remember: Every night after dinner, Daddy Pep and I would go for a walk while Louise cleaned the kitchen. He would have his long stick (to keep away bad dogs), and off we would go, hand-in-hand. He gave me the moon. He would point up to it and ask, "Whose moon is that?" I would, of course, answer, "That's my moon!" He would chuckle and say, "That's right."

When the astronauts were planning to land on the moon, he wrote me a letter and said, "Those astronauts are about to land on your moon!" It is quite ironic that my son wants to be an astronaut. Perhaps because the moon is already taken (by me, of course), he wishes to go to Mars.1
