Biography* Sarah Ann R. Culpepper was the daughter of John Malcolm and Sarah Ann Elizabeth (Stephens) Culpepper. Her parents were noted in the 1870 census of Louina P. O. District, Randolph Co., AL and this is where Sally is presumed to have been born. This district was in the area of what is now known as Wadley, AL. Sometime after the 1880 census, Sally's parents moved the family by wagon train to Grant Co., AR.

In 1889, Sally married George Franklin Hill. The couple was noted with their infant daughter in Sulphur Township, Grant Co., AR in the 1900 census records. However, based on the birth location of the next child, the family moved to Hopkins Co., TX by 1902 and this is where they settled down to raise their family. According to Mrs. D. W. (Lavyn Wright) Sisco,4 their farm was "one mile southwest of the J. C. Bradford farm." Mrs. J. C. (Nancy Gillespie Culpepper) Bradford was Sally's younger sister.

At some point Sally and George apparently moved to Oklahoma since this is where George died in 1933. Sally was 61 years old. Sally died in 1957 in Texas at the age of 86.
