A brief obituary appeared in the Port Arthur News, Port Arthur, Texas, 12 Sep 1936. See Ancestry.com for details.8 
Biography* Chris was apparently born in Corsicana, Navarro County, TX, on 18 Oct 1878. He is not listed in early Navarro County birth records. His mother is said to have died at birth.
Chris enlisted in the U. S. Army 14 May 1904, at Houston, Texas and stayed in the military through 1932.
In his military records it states that C. C. Lowery of Lufkin, TX, was his uncle. Caroll C. Lowery, butcher, was living in Lufkin, Angelina Co., TX, in 1900. He was born in GA in April 1852. His wife Lizzie was born in Arkansas in November 1860. Her father was born in Kentucky, her mother in Missouri. Both of Carroll's parents were born in Georgia. The couple was married about 1883 and had eight children in 1900. It is not clear whether Chris was related to Caroll or to his wife Lizzie. Her maiden name is unknown. But these were apparently relatives of Chris's mother, who died young.
Chris also stated in his military records that his father was killed in a railroad accident. Sherwood Culpepper, his father, was a locomotive engineer. The date of this statement is not known.
Chris has not yet been found in the 1880 or 1900 census. He was in Valdez, Alaska, in 1910, with the military.
In the 1920 census, he was an enlisted man at Camp Del Rio, Val Verde Co., TX. He was 42 years old, born in Texas, and was serving in Co. B., 3rd U. S. Infantry.
From 1922 to 1932 he was in the service of the ROTC program at the North Dakota Agricultrual College. His daughters were born while he was employed by the college. He was listed there in Barnes, Cass Co., ND, in the 1930 census.
Chris seems to be the son of Sherwood Culpepper, of Corsicana and Houston, TX, and an unknown first wife.
