Biography* The following obituary is not dated and from an unknown source: Death of Mrs. G. G. Culpepper After an illness of two months at the home of her daughter, Mrs. G. W. Johnson in Hogansville, Mrs. Grace Herring Culpepper, widow of the late G. G. Culpepper, died on Friday February 28th in her 81st year [accurate if death occurred in 1947 but tombstone lists her death 28 Feb 1946, a Thursday]. Lone Oak's oldest citizen she was greatly beloved. Surviving her are her daughter, Mrs. G. W. Johnson of Hogansville; three grandchildren, Nancy Grace, Rosalind and Warren Johnson, Jr; three sisters, Mrs. S. W. Wallace of Griffin; Mrs. M. H. Walker and Mrs. Homer L. Culpepper of Lone Oak; one brother, Mr. A. S. Herring of Greenville. She was a life-long member of the Methodist church and active in church and Sunday School work. Funeral services, conducted by the Rev. Lee Allgood of the First Methodist church of Hogansville, assisted by the Rev. Ashton Smith of the First Baptist church of Hogansville, were held at Allen-Lee Memorial Church at Lone Oak on Friday afternoon, with burial in the family lot in the church cemetery. A lover of humanity, a devoted wife and mother, a true friend and citizen, she will be greatly missed. The lovely floral offerings bore mute testimony of love and esteem in which she was held. The flower-laden casket was borne to its last resting place by eight of her devoted nephews, Dr. R. O. Lee of LaGrange; Messrs. A. M. Willingham of Dalton; A. D. Herring of Greenville; W. P., Charlie, Roswell Lee, and S. F. Prickett of Lone Oak, and E. L. Prickett of Birmingham.
