Her Baptism was also recorded: "Baptized by Noah Smith Perlina Culpepper and her four sons on the 27th day of September A D 1839 The above four sones are the eldest sones of G. W. Culpepper and Perlina his wife." Finally, the record of her death was preserved in the same Bible: "Perlina Culpepper departed this [life] quietly and peacefully as she had lived Friday 25th of July 1882. Recorded by her Bereaved husband." According to a perpetual calendar, in 1882, the nearest Friday would have fallen on the 21st which is the date that was recorded on Perlina's tombstone.
