     3. He went to Texas.
     4. He was killed in a railroad accident.

Death*3 Feb 1959 He died at Tallapoosa Co., Alabama, on 3 Feb 1959 at age 74.3 
Research note*21 Dec 2010 Shannon Barron Lake wrote Warren Culpepper:
     "The wife of James J. Howard was Epsey Dallas Thompson, the daughter of Jonathan and Isophina/Icyreny Thompson. This Epsey married first James M. Knowles 16 Oct 1861, second Franklin Knowles 24 Sep 1863 and last James J. Howard on 09 Oct 1870. Her first two marriages were in Chambers Co., AL and the last in Tallapoosa Co., AL. She wound up outliving all three husbands. She only gave birth to one son, James 'Jimmy' Knowles, by her first husband. There must have been complications with that first birth because she never had any more. This combined with the fact that James Howard didn't have any children prior to their marriage could be part of the reason that James adopted Lonnie.
     "One of the pieces of the puzzle I am trying to find is the family connection of James J. and Epsey Thompson Howard to Irvin and Joana Baker Culpepper. I have a cousin, Mike Howard, a direct descendant of Lonnie, who has been looking for the family connection or reason for the adoption for 20+ years. He had been looking for a family connection between the Culpeppers and either the Howard or Thompson families. However, I think it may be through the Bakers. Phillip Baker was a favorite family member of my great grandmother, Mary Pearl HARRELSON Barron. She told me the family connections but I was too young to be able to remember now. Mary Pearl is one of the many people that Lew and I have in common. Since Lew Griffin also has a connection to the Culpeppers but NOT the Howard or Keel lines then that makes me think that the connection may be through the Bakers. However, it could be through the Thompsons. The brick wall in the Thompson line is with Epsey's parents, Jonathan 'John' A. and Isophina/Icyreney (maiden name unknown) Thompson. So we don't know anything about their siblings or parents.
     "If you have any clue what became of Irvin or the Culpepper connection to the Thompson, Howard or Baker families please let me know."2

Mrs. Mariah Culpepper died yesterday morning at 5:50 o'clock at the home of her daughter, Mrs. S C Carden, First Street, Girard of complications of diseases. She is survived by eight daughters and one son who are as follows: Mrs. Mary Porter, Mrs. E L Ramsey, Mrs. Will Wynn, Mrs. T F Stillwell, Mrs. Mandy Ford, Mrs. F W Wynn, Mrs, H E Franklin, Mrs. S C Carden and Mr. M V Culpepper; all of whom reside in Phenix City and Girard. The deceased is very widely known and her friends are numerous. That she was a devout Christian, devoted mother and staunch friend, only adds that of her many other good traits of character. She was a member of the Primitive Church [Union Primitive Baptist Church of Crawford, Russell, Alabama]. She was beloved among all who knew her; to know her was to love her.
The funeral will be conducted this afternoon at 2:00 o'clock by Elder WW Riner, following which internment will be in Godwin Cemetery. The following nieces will act as pallbearers: Mozelle Porter, Sarah Franklin, Minnie Franklin, Mittie Ramsey, Annie Ramsey and Daisy Culpepper.5 
Research note*5 Feb 2015 From Susan Tompkins:
I am going to do some further checking on the burial location of Mariah Louisa Wall Culpepper. William T A L's Find A Grave shows him buried at Godwin Cemetery. And Mariah's shows her buried at Union Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery in Crawford which is about 20 miles west of Godwin Cemetery. My mother told me they were both buried there in unmarked graves. She would have been taken there and told that by her aunt who raised her. My mother grew up about six blocks from Godwin Cemetery.5

Robert Curtis Culpepper1

Male, #1544, (27 Jul 1829 - 7 Feb 1864)
Father*James Culpepper Jr., of Darlington, SC (c 1771 - bt 1830 - 1840)
Mother*Elizabeth (?) (17 Nov 1786 - 4 Oct 1886)
DNA* To help confirm Robert Curtis Culpepper's descent from Henry Culpepper of Lower Norfolk, we are seeking a male Culpepper descendant of Robert's to participate in our free DNA testing project. For more information, go to: http://gen.culpepper.com/dna
Birth*27 Jul 1829 Robert was born at South Carolina on 27 Jul 1829.2 
1830 Census1 Jun 1830 Robert was probably a free white male, age under 5, in James Culpepper Jr., of Darlington, SC's houshold, on the 1830 Census at Darlington District, South Carolina. Unaccounted for are 1 M15-20, 1 F5-10, 1 F10-15 and 1 F15-20..3 
1840 Census1 Jun 1840 Robert was probably a free white male, age 10 and under 15, in Elizabeth (?)'s household, on the 1840 Census on 1 Jun 1840 at Darlington District, South Carolina.
(Unaccounted for are 1 F15-20 and 1 F20-30.)4 
Marriage*2 Sep 1852 He married Rhoda Tison on 2 Sep 1852 at age 23.2 
Birth of Son10 Aug 1853 His son Francis Marion Culpepper was born on 10 Aug 1853 at Russell Co., Alabama.1 
Birth of Son17 Aug 1858 His son John Wesley Culpepper was born on 17 Aug 1858 at Georgia
1860 Census*1 Jun 1860 Robert was listed as the head of a family on the 1860 Census at Schley Co., Georgia.5 
Civil War*circa 1863 Robert Culpepper, of Schley Co, GA, enlisted on 5/10/62 as a private. On 5/10/62 he mustered into Co. B, 46th GA Infantry. He died of disease (diarrhea) on 2/7/64 at Marietta, GA. 
Death*7 Feb 1864 He died at Marietta, Cobb Co., Georgia, on 7 Feb 1864 at age 34
From Judy Roberts, granddaughter of Mary Ruth (Culpepper) Chambers:
According to my Grandmother, Robert Curtis is buried outside the fence at Botsford Cemetery (I think it is Old Rural Hill Cemetery) near Plains, GA. There may not be a fence there now and the grave may not be marked.2,6 
Burial*circa 10 Feb 1864 His body was interred circa 10 Feb 1864 at Smithville, Lee Co., Georgia. Rubye Jackson Lewis, great granddaughter of Robert Curtis Culpepper and Rhoda Tison Culpepper, wrote on 14 Jun 2005:
     "I thought I should tell you where Robert Curtis Culpepper is buried. I was told often by my grandad Francis Marion Culpepper (Robert Curtis's son, I have a picture of RC) that he was killed in war and the Government sent him back to Smithville, Georgia in a coffin. At that time, there was only a slab shelter (no sides) for a train station, and at 3:00 AM, the conductor and crew put his coffin out under the shed leaving Rhoda there by herself. She started screaming, and some coon hunters came to her rescue. Since she had no one to help her and no way to carry him to a cemetery, she asked them to dig a grave by the railroad tracts and they buried him there. As far as I know or can find out, no one knows where the original shelter was located, so there is no way to know the exact location of his burial place.".1 
Research note*20 Feb 2007 Robert Culpepper's ancestry is unproven. But this writer thinks that he was the son of James and Elizabeth Culpepper of Darlington District, SC. He is known to have been born in SC, from the 1850 census. And earlier SC censuses show that James and Elizabeth had a son of the right age to have been Robert.

From Judy Roberts, granddaughter of Mary Ruth (Culpepper) Chambers:
Our verbal history is that Robert Curtis' s father was named James and his mother was named Elizabeth.

    In October of 2009 I made a trip to Georgia to see Rubye Lewis, who was there for a church homecoming, and to visit other family and collect more family pictures. I made a special effort to visit the family that has the original picture that was identified by Rubye in all sincerity as Robert Curtis Culpepper, b. 27 Jul 1829, d.7 Feb 1864 in Marietta, GA. I think she said that her mother identified it as Robert Curtis. The family that has the picture told me that they always thought it was Francis Marion Culpepper, Robert Curtis's son. Francis Marion's name, date of birth, date of death and those of his wife are written on the back. When I first got the picture I thought that it looked too modern to be a pre-Civil War picture, but didn't question it. Since then I have had much more experience dating pictures. The clothing and hair style are indeed too modern for the picture to have been taken before the Civil War. It is very similar in styles to of a picture of his brother, John Wesley Culpepper, taken around 1900.
