     This picture has no date nor place taken, but I figure that it was taken around 1900 or so. The girl on the far right is not named. Is it possible that she would be "Edna Culpepper". I have never heard anyone in my family, including my grandfather, ever say anything about another sister in the family.

From Rev. Dr. Thomas W. Binford, III: "I have the picture of the Robert Daniel Culpepper family. Written in the border, I think by my grandmother (Dera Mae Chapman Binford, wife of Thomas W. Binford), is Lizzie, Robert, Ada, J.D., Frank, Milbra, Edna-a friend (Edna has a line through it and up the right side is the name Bessie.)5,6"
