S. F. Culpepper of Greenville, G. G. Culpepper of Lone Oak, Noah S. Culpepper of Atlanta and Joel Culpepper of Carroll county; Vol. 31, No. 49, November 6, 1903

Burial*circa 3 Nov 1903 His body was interred circa 3 Nov 1903 at Allen-Lee Cemetery, Lone Oak, Meriwether Co., Georgia.25,1 
Biography* The George W. Culpepper Bible record for the birth of James Daniel Culpepper was transcribed: "James Daniel Culpepper was Born in the year of Our Lord one thousand eight hundred & 34 - 1834 - March 20th day." The transcription of the date of birth from his tombstone which is recorded of p. 50 of the *.u History of Allen-Lee Memorial United Methodist Church by Eleanor Culpepper Willingham, is "26 Mar 1834." Whatever the date, George Washington Culpepper was living in Meriwether Co., GA in 1834 and this is where James D. Culpepper's is presumed to have been born. James was noted as a 5-10 year old male and as a 16 year old in George W. Culpepper's household in the 1840 and 1850 census.
      In 1852 James married Catherine Fling and after her death, James married her widowed sister, Fereba, in 1859. They were noted in 1860 Lutherville P. O. District, Meriwether Co., GA census records. James fought in the Confederate Army during the Civil War. Mrs. Eleanor Culpepper Willingham in a 6 Apr 1992 letter corrected an entry on p. 65 of History of Allen-Lee Memorial Methodist Church to read: James Daniel Culpepper Pvt. Co. B 1st Reg. Ga. 3-26-1834 11-1-1903
      According to pp. 1-247, 1-248 of Vol. 1 of the Centennial Edition of Roster of Confederate Graves by the Georgia Division United Daughters of the Confederacy, James Daniel was in Co. B 1st [Regiment] GA Cavalry born 26 Mar 1834 and died 1 Nov 1903.
      After the war James returned home and was noted in Greenville P. O. district, Meriwether Co., GA in the 1870 census. He had real estate valued at $500 personal property valued at $200. James, Fereba, and younger children were listed in the 1880 census of Meriwether Co., GA. Finally, James, Fereba and a son, Charlie, were noted in the 1900 Lone Oak, Meriwether Co., GA. James' father, George W. Culpepper, was living with the family.
      There is also a difficulty with the date of James D. Culpepper's death. The George W. Culpepper Bible was transcribed: "J. D. Culpepper Died Nov. 3, 1903." The death date from the tombstone which was recorded on p. 50 of the History of Allen-Lee Memorial United Methodist Church was "1 Nov 1903."
