    I came across an old card, written many years ago (between 1956, her husband's death, and 1967, her death) by Fannie Leila Culpepper Jolly, great-granddaughter of Nathan Culpepper. It is yellowed and hard to read. Some things she recorded are incorrect, based on research available since her death. But, it is interesting to note that she is specific in the dates of birth and death for Nathan. She recorded that he was born March 5, 1779 and died July 21, 1825. She also had the correct marriage date of May 27, 1806 (license May 26, 1806-my notation).

      "The next is where Mr. Elisha Culpepper, one of our oldest and best citizens, lived. His house was blown down, he was killed on the spot, and his daughter-in-law and wife were badly wounded. All of this place is a wreck. The storm seems to have been more terrific here than at any place this side of Mount Airy.
     
      "Elisha Culpepper was noted for his 'strict integrity of character. He was a strict member of the Baptist Church.' At the time of his death, the Culpepper farm consisted of 283 acres of land, appraised August 29, 1876 at $1, 132."

Biography* Erasmus Culpepper, III, the only son of Erasmus and Nancy Culpepper, was born in Nash County, NC on March 1, 1817. He came to Alabama with his parents and siblings as a young boy. He married in Wilcox County on Sept. 12, 1787 to Rebecca Jane Southall, a daughter of John Southall. She was born in Warren County, NC on July 1, 1823 and came to Alabama with her family in the 1840's. The Southall family is another large southern family with old connections back to England. It is about this time in the Lower Peach Tree area, that you will find much intermarriage with the Culpepper, Southall, Overton, and Davis families. It is quite a feat to keep it all straight!
     Erasmus and Rebecca Jane were living close to her parents in the 1850 census of Wilcox County, but by 1860, they were not. The size of their estate and holdings in 1860 could indicate that they moved to the Culpepper plantation after his father's death in 1855, and took sole possession after his mother's death in 1859. Pictures of the family throughout the 1870s and 1880s show us a prosperous farming family. Erasmus Culpepper died Aug. 3, 1880 and Rebecca Jane died on March 5, 1905. Both are buried with several of their children in the Lower Peach Tree Cemetery.
     The family was Methodist and it has been determined that the wedding of their daughter, Estelle, on 11-10-1885, may have been one of the first performed in the Lower Peach Tree Methodist Church!
     The Culpepper-Davis house was just west of Lower Peach Tree, Alabama. It is believed to have been built by Erasmus Culpepper III as the family's second residence. His father, Erasmus II migrated first to Clarke County, but by 1850, had settled more permanently in Wilcox County in the Culpepper, AL area. Erasmus died in 1855 and his wife, Nancy, soon after in 1859. Their son, Erasmus, married by this time to Rebecca Jane, had started a family. The Culpepper-Davis house dates back to the Civil War and it was more than likely built by this young Culpepper family.
     Some wonder why the Culpepper family, with their wealth, did not have a more impressive home, possibly in the style of other southern mansions. The Culpeppers were farmers and Methodists so a certain amount of plainness was expected. If the date of its construction is true then the days of southern opulence and grandeur were at an end. The house is of early Alabama folk architecture and typical for its time.
     There were oak trees lining the drive at one time, but only one is left now. East of where the house used to sit is a pond. The outbuildings were torn down over the years, as well as the separate kitchen and a wing off the west side of the house. The house was abandoned in 1935 after the death of Leila Culpepper Davis. It was used for hay storage for many years. Eventually the house and land were sold to Tom and Brownie Williams. The house was sold in 1977 to Jan and Maud Garrick, later dismantled, and some of the lumber was used by the Garricks in their homes and at Lake Waukaway in Mississippi.
     Gerry Garrick shares: "Memories of the old house and our ancestors who lived there are kept alive through some of the boards saved from the old house that we were able to use when we built our home in Birmingham in 1980. We used some of the heart-of-pine wall boards as flooring in our entry hall. We always enjoy telling visitors about the origin of the wood from the old family house in Wilcox County."
     The best picture we have of the CULPEPPER-DAVIS HOUSE was taken in 1965.1

Biography* Excerpt from Paris Post-Intelligencer, Dec 1891 (copied from Karen Arthur's website):
     Baalam Culpepper and his wife Temperance, moved into Stewart Co., Tennessee, around 1815. Some of the pioneer families were already there. In fact, some of them had been there since Stewart County was formed in 1803.
Like many other families, the Culpeppers moved across the river into Henry County shortly after the Jackson Purchase, which made it legal for white men to live there. They moved into what later became known as the "Old 23rd" district. Some of the Culpeppers wound up in Benton County because they were living on land that was used to form Benton County in 1836.
     The Culpeppers were in the 'Old 23rd" during the years that family feuds caused a lot of bloodshed, but they never seemed to have been involved in it. By and large, they were industrious, hard-working farmers. They seemed to have believed in the doctrine of "live and let live" and seemed to have always been on friendly terms with everyone.
     When Baalam came to Tennessee he brought an old Water Mill and fixed it up and made a Trading Post by the Big Sandy River. He did that for a living. He purchased it from a Swain.10 
Research note* Commentary by Lew Griffin:
     Baalam's parentage has not been conclusively established. But all evidence suggests that he was the son of John Culpepper and Barsheba Wright, of Nash County, NC. For instance, Baalam was a buyer at John's estate sale. And John had a neighbor in Nash County named Baalam, for whom he might have named this son.
     Baalam was in the 1820 census of Stewart County, TN. But he does not appear in any of the published deed records from early Stewart County. Perhaps he did not stay there very long.
     And there are no early marriage records in Stewart County, so if he married there, that record has been lost. The early marriage records in Henry County, TN are also lost.
     It would appear that his first two daughters, Martha Ann and Margaret, were by a currently unknown first wife. For one thing, there is a several year gap between these two early daughters and the rest of Baalam's children. Also, later on, Baalam's daughter Margaret apparently married a younger brother of Baalam's apparent second wife, Tempy.
     But due to loss of records in early Tennessee, this scenario cannot be proven. A second possibility, also worthy of consideration, is that Baalam only had one wife, Tempy Powell, and that she was the mother of all of his children. In this case, the old family tradition that Margaret, wife of Alanson Powell Jr., was Baalam's daughter cannot be correct.
     But given the apparent family tradition that Margaret was a Culpepper, it seems more likely that Baalam had two wives, and that his first two daughters, including Margaret, were by his first and currently unknown wife. This marriage probably took place in Nash County, NC, so perhaps records there will eventually reveal her identity.11

    I came across an old card, written many years ago (between 1956, her husband's death, and 1967, her death) by Fannie Leila Culpepper Jolly, great-granddaughter of Nathan Culpepper. It is yellowed and hard to read. Some things she recorded are incorrect, based on research available since her death. But, it is interesting to note that she is specific in the dates of birth and death for Nathan. She recorded that he was born March 5, 1779 and died July 21, 1825. She also had the correct marriage date of May 27, 1806 (license May 26, 1806-my notation).
