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
