Biography*Aug 2001 Sharon Norman wrote: "Jay Anton Culpepper was my Grandfather and he was quite a painter. He signed all of his paintings with the name "Cully". I knew him well and he was quite a character. If you come across some of the paintings I would love to get them back with the family. When he died, my Dad sold them around Atlanta and maybe the Rockmart area in Georgia."9
