Biography* From Nancy Pressley, October 2000:

If found this interesting letter stapled to a marriage record in Conecuh County, AL. The letter is stapled to Page 190 of Marriage Book D (whites), which shows a marriage between James M. Sanders and Claude Eugean Culpepper (a female), on 19 Oct. 1904 by Rev. Walter P. Howell.

The letter was written by Walter Love Howell, the son of Rev. Walter P. Howell. It is dated 21 Nov 1963, addressed to the Conecuh County Court House in Evergreen, AL, and attached to his letter are photocopies of two pages from a Bible. The letter states "The Sanders and the Culpeppers were neighbors and long time friends of my father's family. ...the marriage was performed at the home of John A. Culpepper in the Georgiaville community of Conecuh County." The letter is notarized, and is signed in what appears to be an elderly hand. A transcript of the Bible pages follows:

1. Holy Matrimony Page: "J.A. Culpepper was married to Josephine Williams January 13, 1881. John A. Culpepper and family moved from Georgia to Alabama the 31st of December 1890."
