Biography* George Freeman Culpepper was the son of William Jehu and Emily Julia Ann Josephine (East) Culpepper. His parents are believed to have moved the family from the Louina Beat (now Wadley) in Randolph Co., AL to a farm in the Hurricane Creek area of Grant Co., AR around 1890.16 Unfortunately, the 1890 U. S. census records were burned and cannot be used to pinpoint where the family was at the time of George's birth. In the mid-1890's, George's parents moved the family to Hopkins Co., TX and George is noted with his parents in 1900 and 1910 census records there.

In 1913, George married Dollie Matthews and they settled down to raise a family in Texas.
.
He had lived in Dallas for 20 years prior to his death in 1973 at the age of 83. At the time of his death, he was living at 3703 Simpson Place in Dallas. He had worked as a night watchman.
