Biography* The following appeared on p. 16 of The Atlanta Constitution Tuesday, 2 Nov 1948, just a week before the death of Mrs. J. W. Culpepper: Tribute Is Paid Mrs. Culpepper Mrs. J. W. Culpepper, of Fayetteville, one of the most beloved members of Georgia Division UDC, was signally honored at the recent convention in Waycross when her chapter presented a beautiful sterling silver vase to the Georgia Division, to be awarded annually, to the UDC Chapter doing the greatest work for the Children of the Confederacy. Mrs. Culpepper has attended many general conventions, but due to ill health she has not been able to attend since the Jackson, Miss., convention in 1946. She took part in Jackson, in the Grand March at the Children of the Confederacy Page's Ball, and has always stressed the great importance of C. of C. work, realizing that the children of today are daughters of tomorrow. Mrs. Hill Redwine, former President of the UDC Chapter at Fayetteville, and lifelong friend of Mrs. Culpepper, made the presentation of the "Sally Taylor Culpepper Vase," and paid loving tribute to this real Daughter of the Confederacy, who gave so many years of untiring work to her beloved organization. The cup was awarded this year to the Moultrie McNeil Chapter, Mrs. Hiller Gammage, President.
