Biography David Sneads Culpepper moved with his family about 1835 from Laurens County, Georgia, to Dooly, now. Crisp County, and settled in this immediate vicinity at what is now Daphne. Their first home was a one-room rough-log house with shed on one side for the slaves to sleep in. Cooking was done outside in the open. Later a better house was built -- a double-pen log structure, ruins of which are observable a short distance west of the flowing well at Daphne.
     On the way from Laurens County, the family camped one night on the east side of the Ocmulgee River near Hawkinsville, at the home-place of a farmer, or cattleman. The trip was made in oxcarts, in which were brought hogs, cattle, chickens, slaves, and other property belonging to the family. The journey was made by way of the old Blackshear Road that was opened in 1814. At this camping place this incident occurred: Next morning before resuming the journey, one of the farmer's pigs joined the Culpepper pigs on the raft near Hawkinsville and went with his new found pig acquaintances a full-day's journey. Upon return that way several weeks thereafter, Mr. Culpepper made inquiry of his farmer friend and was informed that the run-away pig had, for some pig reason satisfactory to itself, repented and come back home to his Pa and Ma, having swum the river to accomplish the feat."38 
Biography* A descendant, P. Melton Culpepper, Jr., wrote 22 Mar 1991: Sneads' log cabin was mentioned in a history on Crisp County written in 1931 (see below). The general location was refered to in proximity to a flowing well which is still present in the Georgia Veterans State Park in this County. A former superintendant of the Park in his 70's remembered where an old log cabin once burned which was the same one mentioned in the History. He pointed it out to me and I went there and dug around and found some old square nails and broken glass.39 
Family Bible* David Sneads Culpepper Family Bible
Dooly Co., GA

The Holy Bible
containing the Old and New Testaments
Cooperstown, NY
Published by H. & E. Phinney, 1846


This bible was said to have originally been the property of David Sneads Culpepper (29 Jul 1816 - 5 Mar 1886), son of David Culpepper and Elizabeth Hogan. It was given to his youngest daughter, Julia Emma Culpepper Brown, who is thought to have made many of the entries in it. She died childless, and at her death it was given to her great-nephew, Samuel Jackson Culpepper, son of Thomas Albert Culpepper. Samuel died on 3 Jul 1970 in Crisp Co., GA, but the Bible had been given to his youngest son, Leon Raines Culpepper in 1962. On 1 Mar 1985, Leon, who did not have any natural male children, gave the Bible to his nephew, Perry Melton Culpepper, Jr. (Melton)39.

Leon had had the Bible repaired, but the original cover was retained. When the Bible was received by Melton, there was a small photograph of Julia Brown taped on the inside leaf in the front.

As of August 2004, Melton still owns the Bible and has willed it to his son, Jackson Campbell Culpepper. Melton also wrote the text above.

Photocopies of the Bible's family history pages have been provided to the Georgia Department of Archives and to Culpepper Connections!

The transcription below was done by Warren L. Culpepper, publisher of Culpepper Connections! In so far as possible, the sequence, wording, spelling and style were all retained exactly as found. Text in parentheses represents notations by Warren. The parenthetical text following each entry gives (1) the relationship of the person to David Sneads Culpepper and (2) that person's #number within the Culpepper Family Tree. Based on Warren's analysis of handwriting styles, he believes that the events dated prior to 1867 were written by one person, and subsequent events by another, probably Julia Culpepper Brown.
