Biography* The following is from a manuscript by Kathryn English Culpepper, as transcribed by Gayle L. Poole:
     Joe stayed home and managed his father's farm and took care of his aging parents. Never very strong, he almost died in France, while serving the U.S. Army during World War I, He caught "flu" and had even been carried out with the dead. The Guard on duty heard him groan and the guard got him back into the hospital In time.
     Joe's son, Kay, served in the Army in World War II. He married Ann Salmon and they have two daughters, Anna Kay and Coley. Anna married Gregory Hendrix and their infant son's name is John Winfield.
     Joe and William taught me to drive the cultivator and "gee" and "haw". They also taught me to drive a two horse wagon standing up!11
