Biography* Emily Miriam was the seventh child and third daughter of William Henry and Sarah (Leslie) Culpepper. Since Emily's parents were noted in the 1840 census of Meriwether Co., GA and are not known to have moved to Alabama until 1848, Emily is presumed to have been born in Meriwether Co., GA. When Emily was seven years old, her parents moved the family to Alabama. Within months, Emily's mother died. Emily is next noted in the household of her widowed father in the 1850 census of Randolph Co., AL and in the household of her father and his second wife in the 1860 census of Almond P. O. District of Randolph Co., AL.

After the Civil War, Emily apparently married for the first time. Her first child was listed as a step-daughter in the household of Emily's second husband, B. Y. Carlisle. There is a family tradition that Emily's first husband was named John Culpepper. There is speculation that this was John Culpepper, the son of James I./J. Culpepper, who was noted living with his mother in Coosa Co., AL in the 1850 census and who was noted as a head-of-household in Harris Co., GA in the 1860 census with his mother living with him. He is not known to have died during the Civil War and he has not been located in 1870 census records so he is believed to have died before then. Emily next married B. Y. Carlisle and they settled down in Randolph Co., AL to raise their family. The remainder of Emily's children are by her second marriage.
Emily was 83 years old when she lost her second husband of over 50 years. She died in 1937 at the age of 96. She was living on West Point Street in Roanoke, AL.
