Biography* Mrs. J. W. (Ira Gay) Deam of Gay, GA preserved John Jefferson Culpepper's birth data from John Culpepper, Senior's Bible and Mrs. D. W. (Lavyn Wright) Sisco transcribed the information as follows: _________________________John J. Culpepper _________________________b. November 4, 1797 _________________________On Saturday at 10 o'clock A.M.
     John Jefferson's parents are believed to have been living in Orangeburg District, SC at the time of his birth in an area which was designated Lexington District in the 1800 census and which later became Lexington Co., SC. In the 1800 census, John Jefferson's father, John Culpepper, was listed as a head of household with his young family, including, John Jefferson Culpepper, in Lexington District, SC. By 1810, John Jefferson's parents had moved the family back across the Congaree River to Richland District, SC. Possibly this took place in 1807 when John Jefferson's father, John was made an administrator of Daniel Peek's estate. John Jefferson was recorded with his parents in the 1810 census of Richland District, SC. Some time after this census, John Jefferson would have moved with his parents to Edgefield District, SC which shared a portion of its eastern border with Lexington District, SC.
     Although no record has been found, John Jefferson Culpepper is believed to have married Catherine Bell by 1816 in Edgefield District, SC where their parents owned land. A son, born circa 1817, gave his place of birth as Georgia in the 1850 census. Although it is possible that the couple moved to Georgia and returned by 1820 when their next child was born, it is more likely that the son, who was not living near his parents at the time of the 1850 census, simply knew that he had grown up in Georgia and said that he had been born there. Unfortunately, neither John Jefferson nor his father, John Culpepper, has been located as a head of household in the 1820 census of South Carolina or Georgia. However, since John Culpepper, Senior was granted land in Edgefield District, SC in 1814 and he sold land there in 1823, the family is presumed to have still been in South Carolina in 1820 and it is possible that John Jefferson and Catherine were still in Edgefield District, SC in 1820 as well, living near Catherine's widowed mother, Barbary Bell, but overlooked in the census.
     John Jefferson's father, John Culpepper, is known to have moved his family to Georgia when son, Lewis P. Culpepper, was about seven years old meaning that the family probably moved in the Fall of 1823. John Jefferson and Catherine (Bell) Culpepper presumably moved their young family to Georgia about this same time although when Barbary Bell, Catherine (Bell) Culpepper's mother, died in 1826, John Jefferson and his wife apparently returned to South Carolina to settle the estate.
     A land lottery was held in Georgia in 1827. In order to take part in the lottery, John J. Culpepper would have to have been in Georgia for at least three years, i.e., at least since April 1824. As a married man and a citizen of the United States and who had lived in Georgia for three years, John Jefferson would have been eligible for two draws in the lottery. According to Land Lottery Register No. 11 published by Grantland & Orme, on April 2, 1827 "John J. Culpepper" from Captain Turner's District, Monroe Co., GA drew lot #230 which was 202 ½ acres in District 5 of Section 1, Lee Co., GA. The land was in Randolph County, GA when John sold it: "JOHN J. CULPEPPER of Upson Co. to REUBEN BYNAM of Randolph Co. Lot #230, 5th
Dist. Wit.: Eldridge Glabonip, William Caper, J.P." (Randolph Co. GA Deeds)
     John moved to Upson Co., GA where he is found in a 27 Feb 1829 land record (A 434/5) deeding the Lee County land to his father, John Culpepper, for $5.00: Georgia_______This Indenture made the 29th day of February Upson County__in the year of our Lord one Thousand eight hundred and Twenty nine between John J. Culpepper of the State and County aforesaid of the one part and John Culpepper of the State aforesaid and county of Monroe of the other part. Witness that the said John J.

Culpepper [this is the only document which has been found which assigns a middle initial to John Culpepper, Senior. Apparently the clerk was trying to distinguish John Culpepper, Sr. from John J. Culpepper and, since John Culpepper was living in another county, perhaps did not realize that he was John J. Culpepper's father and therefore, John Culpepper, Sr. Since John Culpepper, Senior was literate and at least two copies of his signature are known to exist, it is unlikely that the "C" was his mark. If the middle initial was "C." the name was not passed on to any of his sons although there was a grandson and a great-grandson named Charles William Culpepper. There was a John Cowan Culpepper, a son of Sampson Culpepper, but he is believed to have been living in Laurens Co., GA at this time and he had no known connection to John Jefferson Culpepper] the following Personal property to wit, one brown mare colt about Two years old, one bay mare colt about three years old, five cows & Calves now in the possession of the Said John C.

Culpepper will warrant and forever defend the right and title of the Said personal property to him the Said John Culpepper his heirs and assigns.

In Witness whereof the Said John J. Culpepper has hereunto Set his hand and affixed his Seal the day and year first above written. Signed sealed and delivered in the presence of ______his Thomas X Bulman__________________John J. Culpepper [seal] ______mark John Gardner J.P. ________________________Recorded this 12th May 1829
     "John J. Culpepper" was listed in the 1830 Upson Co., GA census with his wife and 1 male 10-15 years of age, 1 male 15-20 years of age, and 1 female 10-15 years of age. The older boy has not been identified. If a son, then John Jefferson and Catherine (Bell) Culpepper would have to have married when they were 11-16 years of age and the son has not been identified in later census records. But the age would also match that of John Jefferson Culpepper's younger brother, William Henry Culpepper, who has not been found in the 1830 census and who married in 1831 in Upson Co., GA.
     As a fortunate drawer in the 1827 lottery, it is not clear that John Jefferson Culpepper was eligible for the 1832 Gold Lottery unless for some reason he was considered NOT to have "taken out a grant for said land lot." In any event "John J. Culpepper" won Gold Lot 380 in district 19 of section 3. This would have been a 40 acre lot near the lower center border of Paulding Co., GA. It is not known if John Jefferson ever mined his Paulding Co., GA land or if he sold it but by 1840 he had moved on to Chambers Co., AL. Possibly the family moved in 1835 or 1836 along with John J. Culpepper's brothers, Francis and James. Or perhaps the family moved in 1837 after the marriage of John Jefferson's son, John J. Culpepper. The elder John J. Culpepper was listed in the 1840 census of Chambers Co., AL. One male and one female 40-50 were recorded, presumably John and his wife, Catherine. Two males 5-10 and one female 15-20 were listed in the household, presumably the three younger children, Robert, William and Elizabeth. The "John J. Culpepper" recorded in the 1840 census of Upson Co., GA (1m 0-5 1m 20-30 1f 15-20), was a son of John Jefferson and Catherine (Bell) Culpepper who was born approximately 1817, who married Elizabeth Stallings in 1837, and who would have had a son, Lewis L. Culpepper, who would have been approximately two years old in 1840. The John Jefferson Culpepper family remained in Chambers Co., AL at least until 1850 when John Culpepper was listed as a farmer in the 1850 Chambers Co., AL census with his wife, Catherine, and son, William. Their daughter, Elizabeth, who had married Robert Johnson, was living next door.
     In the 1850 census, John Jefferson Culpepper was listed as having real estate valued at $300. However, 22 Aug 1850 "John J. Culpepper" bought or was granted 139 46/100 acres of land (Certificate or Warrant 68.157) in the South East part of Section 3 of Township 22 South, Range 10 East of Randolph Co., AL. This land appears to be to the northwest of what is now Wadley and southeast of Almond. The land appears to be split from the southeast corner to the northwest corner by route 77. Presumably, John Jefferson Culpepper moved with his wife and youngest sons to Randolph Co., AL about this time. However, the second marriage of William Washington Culpepper, John Jefferson and Catherine (Bell) Culpepper's youngest son, took place in Chambers Co., AL Dec 1855 at the home of William's brother, Robert J. Culpepper, and John Jefferson Culpepper was a bondsman. Possibly, since John Jefferson lived close to the Chambers Co., AL border, he just went back for the occasion. In 1860, John J. Culpepper was listed with his wife, Catherine, and grandson, John J. Culpepper, at Almond P. O. near Louina (now Wadley), Randolph Co., AL. John J. Culpepper was listed in the 1870 census of Louina P. O. (now Wadley) Randolph Co., AL. John was living near the families of his two sons, Robert and William and a grandson, John Jr. According to p. 112 of Historical Records of Randolph County, Alabama 1832-1900 from the 12 Feb 1875 issue of the Randolph Enterprise the following had their land sold for taxes: On March 1, 1875 the property belonging to the following named persons was to be sold at public auction to the highest bidder from the Court House in Wedowee... BEAT VIII _____Township 21, Range 10... John J. Culpepper... W. W. Culpepper....
     John Jefferson Culpepper would have been 77 years old when he lost this land which was north of the land he purchased or was granted in 1850 and John Jefferson apparently still owned land nearby since he was noted in the 1880 census of Randolph Co., AL. John William Culpepper wrote in an 18 Aug 1994 letter that Mrs. John (Edith Champion) Zuber, a great-great granddaughter of John Jefferson Culpepper, told him that John Jefferson Culpepper lived on the land which Mrs. Zuber's mother's sold in 1950.
      John William Culpepper wrote 18 Aug 1994 that he had located Mrs. John (Edith Champion) Zuber, a great-great-granddaughter of John Jefferson Culpepper. John William believes that the land that Edith's mother, Mrs. M. A. (Inez Culpepper) Champion, sold in 1950 was the land that had originally belonged to John Jefferson Culpepper's father, John Culpepper. The land appears to have been a 58.84 acre lot which was noted as Fraction C of section 14 in Township 22 Range 10 of Randolph Co., AL. The land is south of Wadley on the Chambers County line and Route 22 crosses diagonally through the bottom half of the land. It was originally granted to William Culpepper 21 Feb 1850. Mrs. Champion's grandfather, William Washington Culpepper, a son of John Jefferson Culpepper, would have been only 15 years old at that date so it is assumed that William Henry Culpepper, John Jefferson Culpepper's brother, was granted the land. John Culpepper, Sr. is known from census records to have been living near present day Wadley in 1850 and an extant letter from him to a son, Francis G. Culpepper, indicates that he owned land in the area but only his sons show up in land records. Since John Culpepper, Sr. had "broken up housekeeping" by 1853, it is assumed that he was living on one of the parcels that was in the name of one of his sons. John William wrote of a visit to Mrs. Champion's former property: You will see that rt. 22 leaves Wadley in a Southwesternly direction. The home of current residents, Mr. and Mrs. J. T. Edge, is approximately 3/4 of a mile from Wadley, on Rt. 22 [near the Chambers Co., AL line]. I don't know how far east the property extends [it appears to extend to a point where a secondary road branches south to Chambers Co., AL], but I believe it extends north to Hutton Creek [it appears to cover about 2/3 of the distance from the Chambers Co., AL border to Hutton Creek].... Mrs. John Zuber, (Edith Champion Zuber) daughter of Inez Culpepper Champion [Mrs. M. A. Champion], daughter of Robert Benjamin Culpepper, son of William Washington Culpepper, son of John Jefferson Culpepper advises that her mother sold the property to Mrs. Edge's father in the 1950's.... She said that John Jefferson Culpepper lived at the place with his wife and two sons and remained there after their sons moved to Sand Mountain [Marshall Co., AL]. John and his wife are buried at the Concord Baptist Church Cemetery, located half way between Wadley and Roanoke, Alabama [John Jefferson Culpepper and his wife, Catherine, are not listed in an index to Concord Church Cemetery records possibly because the graves were unmarked or because the markings can no longer be read].... Mrs. Zuber stated that her mother lived at the home place until her husband died and a few years after but found it too much work and moved. It was after she moved that the house on Rt. 22 burned to the ground.
     In a 3 May 1994 letter, John William Culpepper wrote of attempting to locate the location of the house: We located the owner of the property and his wife a Mr. J. T. Edge and his wife Marian.... J. T. Edge took up back of his home over a hill and a short way down the other side of a dirt road where a house used to be. We found the well and a few cedar trees but no visible ground parks of a home. This was the location site mentioned by a lady they talked with who identified the Edge Place as being the former Culpepper property and residence of John and Nancy [Nancy appears to have died in Georgia before John came to Alabama]. We noticed that about 150 yards east of the Edge house, which fronts on State route 22, there stands two tall rock chimneys approximately 45 to 50 feet apart. He took us to the site and said the log house was large with a dog trot in the middle and when they came here there were people still living in the house. He said a nearby well which was covered with branches is 90 feet deep. The Edge house is the location of the original house but a few feet further back from the semi circular drive. The original house burned and scorched the nearby trees which he said were planted by Charles Culpepper the botanist who moved to the Washington area. The old road used to go between the inside of the drive and the current road, Rt. 22. Facing the Edge home on the left of the house but on the other side of the old road was a carriage shop and on the east side of the drive was a blacksmith shop. Mr. Edge said the property was a Culpepper land grant....
     Mrs. Deam and Mrs. Sisco preserved the Bible record of John Jefferson Culpepper's death: _________________________d. May 4, 1885
     The Concord Baptist Church cemetery is about 3 ½ miles east of where John Jefferson Culpepper was living, on Route 22, on the opposite side of the Tallapoosa River. It is on the same side of the river as the now defunct town of Louina which was replaced about 1900 as a population center by Wadley on the opposite of the river. Is it possible that this is also where John Culpepper was buried?
