    I came across an old card, written many years ago (between 1956, her husband's death, and 1967, her death) by Fannie Leila Culpepper Jolly, great-granddaughter of Nathan Culpepper. It is yellowed and hard to read. Some things she recorded are incorrect, based on research available since her death. But, it is interesting to note that she is specific in the dates of birth and death for Nathan. She recorded that he was born March 5, 1779 and died July 21, 1825. She also had the correct marriage date of May 27, 1806 (license May 26, 1806-my notation).
