Biography* Julia Eldora was the daughter of William Jehu and Emily Julia Ann Josephine (East) Culpepper. She was born too late to be noted with her parents in the 1880 census of the Louina Beat (now Wadley) in Randolph Co., AL but this is where she spent her early years. Around 1890, the family is believed to have moved to a farm in the Hurricane Creek area of Grant Co., AR and Julia would have presumably accompanied her parents there.5 Unfortunately, the 1890 U. S. census records were burned.
In the mid-1890's, Julia accompanied her parents as they moved again, this time to Hopkins Co., TX. This is probably where she met James Edmond Hux whom she married in 1902. The couple settled down to farm and raise their family in Hopkins Co., TX. Julia lost her husband of 53 years in 1956. Julia died in 1970 at the age of 89.
