Biography* Mary Glanton was the daughter of William Jehu and Emily Julia Ann Josephine (East) Culpepper. She died in 1957 at the age of 69.
Mary Glanton was primarily called "Glant" and for some unknown reason some of her siblings called her "Chink". She was another of the serious diabetics in the family of William Jehu and Josephine East Culpepper. She married a minister, Jim McKinney who had sons by a previous marriage. On Christmas Day in 1955 she was found in a coma which led to her death on January 6, 1957. Glant was a tall lady. In fact, she was as tall as some of her brothers. She was not blessed with natural beauty but appeared to have abundant self-confidence and enjoyed dressing attractively. In her pictures she posed with the air and grace of modern models. She gave birth to no children and was a little uncertain about how to entertain children who were her guests. She did welcome them and show affection for them .
Mary G. Culpepper and James W. McKinney had no children but there were three step-sons, Morris, Lester and Calvin (or Cavin), who were sons of James W. McKinney by a previous marriage.
