Biography* Malcolm Henry Luther Culpepper was the son of William Jehu and Emily Julia Ann Josephine (East) Culpepper.
      According to Tommie Smith, "he was one of at least three of his siblings who developed Diabetes that plagued him a long time. His death in 1933 at the age of 44 no doubt was hastened by the disease. Most of his children were close to the age of his youngest sibling, Tessie Lee Sue Culpepper Reeves."
      Mack was born and raised in Randolph Co., AL where he was noted with his parents in the 1880 census but probably near the Tallapoosa Co., AL border since the family apparently attended church in Daviston, AL.12

Around 1890, the family is believed to have moved to a farm in the Hurricane Creek area of Grant Co., AR and Mack would presumably have accompanied his parents.13 Unfortunately, the 1890 U. S. census records were burned. In the mid-1890's, Mack's parents moved again, this time to Hopkins Co., TX. Again, Mack appears to have accompanied his parents and this is apparently where he met Elba Louella McGill whom he married in 1899.

Mack and Elba appear to have settled down to farm and raise their family in Hopkins Co., TX and they were noted there in 1900 and 1910 census records. But, by the time of the 1920 census, the family had moved to Miller Co., AR. Mack died in 1933 at the age of 55.
