Biography* Francis Marion Culpepper was known as "Frank." He was born in Randolph Co., AL near what is now known as Wadley, AL. By 1880, Frank had moved with his parents to Clay Co., AL where the family was recorded in the 1880 census. He is presumed to have moved with his parents to the Sand Mountain area of Marshall Co., AL in 1883 and six years later, Frank married, possibly in Marshall Co. or Cullman Co., AL. However, before the 1897 birth of his youngest daughter, Frank had moved his family to Gadsden, Etowah Co., AL where he would spend the remainder of his life. He was recorded with his wife and children in Gadsden in the 1900 census and again the 1910 census a 40 year old "Frank M. Culpepper" born in Alabama was recorded (58-5) in Gadsden, Etowah Co., AL with his wife and younger children. Mary Lillian Butler Pierce wrote 4 Mar 1994: I do remember that he [Frank] worked at a stove foundry. As a matter of fact, my grandfather [Frank's brother, John James Culpepper] bought a wood stove from him....
      In an 18 Jan 1979 letter, Mary Lillian wrote: Great Grandpa Jeff [Robert Jefferson Culpepper] has a war emblem by his tomb shaped like a 3 or 4 leaf clover, made of iron or steel. He had a pocket watch with a chain & watch fob looked like the iron emblem at his grave. My grandfather [John James Culpepper] kept it, long as he lived.... Uncle Frank Culpepper got it soon as my Grandfather died. I don't know who got it when Uncle Frank died....
      The following column by Will I. Martin from an unknown source was preserved by Mary Lillian (Butler) Pierce: THE FIREMEN WHO WORE SILK TOP HATS, TAILS Gadsden once had a fire department, most of the members of which frequently attended and fought fires in full dress suits. That's right, Tails, top silk hats, bow ties, expansive shirt fronts and everything. There was never anything like it in any other city in the world, before or since. It all came about when the entire department, including Chief Gus Woodliff and Assistant Chief Frank Culpepper went on strike. The men quit when the city council decided to move the hose wagon from the Bellenger livery stable on Court Street to the Sullivan stable on South Fourth Street where the McCleskey brothers now hold forth. The council took the action without consulting the firemen and they believed that the Court Street stand was the best, because it was more centrally located and also because the alarm bell was hung in a tall steel tower just across the street in the courthouse yard. When the strike was announced the council hastily organized a new company comprised by kids fresh out of college and youthful members of the society set. They were mostly sons of large property owners and factory heads. A game but inexperienced lot. The strike lasted several months, during which the kids were kept busy answering alarms. Every time they had a full-dress dance at the Printup or elsewhere an alarm came in, usually due to a blaze in some outhouse or shanty. They rushed from the dance hall in their monkey suits and occasionally they returned to the dance, but most or the time they had serious job on their hands. The biggest fire during that period was the one that destroyed the Kyle sawmill on the river bank just off First Street. They did splendid work there by saving the planing mill and a huge quantity of lumber. The old firemen called them "dudes" but soon learned to respect them and occasionally, they helped in fighting a stubborn blaze. John S. Paden Jr. was chief of the so-called society crew and was later succeeded by Will P. Gwin. The council paid the boys one dollar a fire and it was a common remark that they would get rich on the numerous blazes that occurred in an old shop building at Locust and Sixth streets. Frank Culpepper who assistant chief when the firemen went on strike said the other day that the trouble was finally ironed out and that the experienced firemen, mostly working men, went back into service. He was a member when the first motor truck was bought and was a member of the city council when the second one was purchased. The two - horse hose truck was replaced and later Frank became chief. In 1912 he attended the national convention of Fire chiefs In Denver, Col. In 1913 he quit because the council wanted to do away with the chief's horse and buggy and mount him on a motorcycle. Mr. Culpepper served as alderman during the administrations of Mayors W. P. Johnson, W. E. Wier and O. J. Stocks. He was born in Randolph County and came here 50 years ago. One of his first acts was to join the fire department, a voluntary organization that never drew any pay. A blind horse named "Bill" pulled the hose wagon then. Mr. Culpepper worked in several shops as a mechanic and then went to the A. J. Stove Foundry to do odd jobs in all departments until he was appointed master mechanic. He served the company for 35 years and six months. He will be 78 years old Aug. 25 next. He is rated as a man of the highest character and is universally regarded as one of the substantial citizens of Gadsden.
      In 1940, in celebration of Frank's seventy-first birthday, a family reunion was held at his home on South Second Street, Gadsden, Etowah Co, AL. The following was preserved by Mary Lillian Butler Pierce and is from an unknown source: Reunion Honors F. M. Culpepper On His Birthday MR. AND MRS. F. M. CULPEPPER, entertained recently with a family reunion at their home on South Second Street, in celebration of the seventy-first birthday of Mr. Culpepper. At noon a delicious dinner was served to the following friends and relatives: Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Willoughby and sons J. W. Glenn and Byron, of Boaz, Route 4: Mrs. C. F. Nichols and child, of Bastrop, La. Mr. and Mrs. Thealon Seay, of Boaz, Mrs. D. F. McBrayer, of Attalla; Loren Gaines, of Sardis; Louis J.

Biography* John Jefferson Culpepper's mother died, if not as the result of his birth, then soon thereafter and he appears to have been raised by his grandparents, John Jefferson and Catherine (Bell) Culpepper. Since his father, William Washington Culpepper, appears to have married in Chambers Co., AL in 1853 and again in 1855, this is where John Jefferson Culpepper is presumed to have been born. As an infant, he apparently moved with his grandparents and their extended family to Randolph Co., AL where John J. Culpepper was noted in the 1860 and 1870 census living with his grandparents.
     Probably in order to avoid confusion with his grandfather, the marriage bond was issued for Jefferson J. Culpepper and William W. Culpepper for $200 and he signed it "J. J. Culpepper." The marriage license was also issued for Jefferson J. Culpepper and Sarah Carlisle on 21 Dec 1875. W. H. Culpepper, M.I. signed that he had married them on 23 Dec 1875. The bond and license were issued in Tallapoosa County, AL but a granddaughter, Aileen Culpepper, wrote 12 Jul 1979 that the wedding actually took place "near Wadley" which is in Randolph Co., AL. Since the couple was married by their great-granduncle, W. H. Culpepper, perhaps they were married at his home near Wadley.
     The couple apparently settled down in Randolph Co., AL and this is where they were noted in the 1880 census. But based on the birth locations of their children, John Jefferson Culpepper and his wife, apparently moved their family to Texas sometime after 1890 and before 1895. And John Jefferson Culpepper was noted with his family in the Jones Co., TX census in 1900. This is apparently where he remained the rest of his life.

      Robert Benjamin F. Culpepper was born near Louina on land that is south of what is now Wadley in Randolph Co., AL near the Chambers Co., AL border off of Route 22. He apparently remained there the rest of his life. John William Culpepper, great-great-great-grandson of John and Nancy (Gillespie) Culpepper, believes that this is the same land that John Culpepper owned when he died in 1855. Robert Benjamin was recorded in his father's household in 1870 and in 1880 and Robert emerged as a head of household in the 1900 census of Randolph Co., AL, apparently remaining behind, possibly caring for his grandfather, John Jefferson Culpepper, when his father moved to Marshall Co., AL. Robert B. Culpepper was also noted with his wife, children and his mother-in-law in the 1910 census of Randolph Co., AL.
      On 26 July 1979, Mary Lillian Butler Pierce wrote of Robert Benjamin F. Culpepper "Cousin Benny Culpepper would visit us in the summer. He had palsy, so they called it then, his head would shake and his hands, he could hardly eat." In a 29 Mar 1981 letter, Mrs. Pierce continued: Cousin Benny visited us in 1931 from Wadley, AL. He hands and head would shake so much, that food would all shake off his fork or spoon before he could get it in his mouth. And in those day's people poured a little coffee in the saucer and drank it from the saucer, time he would get the saucer to his mouth, the coffee would all be spilled on my mother's white table cloth. We all felt so sorry for him, and we would want to help him or feed him. He would only laugh at us, and insist on feeding himself.
      Mrs. Eleanor Culpepper Willingham wrote in a 28 Sep 1987 letter: We found a man whose wife [Mrs. M. A. (Inez Culpepper) Champion?] was related to the Benjamin descendants. There is a beautiful fairly new "more or less colonial" type house which was built on site of Benjamin's home place in Randolph Co. The original house burned but the original barns and other houses used for various reasons still stand. One was the smoke house. As well as I can remember he said g.g. grandfather John William lived in this neighborhood. He told us how to locate old Beulah Cemetery, which we found [see John William Culpepper below, is this off of Route 22 near the Chambers Co., AL border?]. In a lot there is a rather large marker which is at the head of 3 graves. The names on the marker are: R-Benjamin-1864-1946-Dora Virginia 1864-1948-Obera Rebecca-1895-1926. The marker Pink Marble. This Mr. Smith (I believe that was his name) [Champion?] said there is a cemetery down by the [Tallapoosa] river - which would be almost inaccessible. He had never heard that John Wm & Nancy were buried there but said it could be a possiblity.
      John William Culpepper wrote 18 Aug 1994: Her [Mrs. John (Edith Champion) Zuber's] grandfather, Robert Benjamin Culpepper is buried in a defunct church cemetery about a mile west of their home, just off Rt. 22 a short distance down a rock road, along with his wife Medora Virginia Bailey Culpepper and their daughter Obra Virginia. Ben was born in 1864, died in 1946, his wife was born in 1864 and died in 1948, Obra was born in 1895 and she died in 1926. The names on the headstone read R. Ben, Dora and Obra.
