Biography* The following, copied by Mrs. F. D. (Betty Lee Collins) Hale, is from pp. 292-293 of Vol. 2 of Pioneers of Wiregrass, Georgia: WOOTEN, REDDEN._____1785-1881_____BROOKS [Co., GA] Redden Wooten, a son of Joe] Wooten, R.S. (Vol. I), was born in Edgecombe County, N. C., in 1785, and died at his home near Pavo in Brooks County Ga., in 1881, age 96 years. He came with his parents to Burke County, Ga., in 1800, then about 1805 to Montgomery County, then to Telfair County. He was married twice. His first marriage was in Telfair County, May 17, 1810, to Miss Susannah Byrd, born 1793 in McIntosh County. By her six children were born. In 1849, he was married in Lowndes (now Brooks) County, to Martha Ann Dukes, born 1820 in Tattnall County, daughter of Elijah Dukes, and grand-daughter of John Dukes, R.S., who emigrated from Barnwell District, S. C., to Tattnall County about 1802-03. By the second wife, six children were born. The twelve children in their order, were: 1. Elizabeth b. 1811, m. Morgan G. Swain, Sept. 3, 1928. 2. Easter b. 1813, m. Adoniram Vann, Aug. 10, 1831. 3. Sarah b. 1815, m. Lasa Adams, Dec. 1, 1834. 4. Joel Byrd b. 1817, m. Mary Roberts, Nov. 21, 1841, dau. of Elias. 5. Martha b. 1820, m. Ezekiel Parrish, Dec. 4, 1839. 6. Redden Byrd b. 1823, m. Nancy Edmondson, dau. of John. 7. John Dukes b. 1851, m. 1st, Martha P. Williams; 2nd, Lizzie McRae. 8. Susannah Dukes b. 1852, m. William Cooper, Oct. 23, 1869. 9. Henry Dukes b. ]854, m. Lula Victoria Kauffman, Apr. 26, 1890. 10. Elljah Dukes b. 1855, m. 11. Elisha Dukes b. 1857, m. 12. Sarah Dukes b. 1859, died young. Mr. Wooten lived several years on the north side of the Ocmulgee River, but after the creation of Appling County south of the river and the detachment of the 1st ]and district from Appling and being added to Telfair, he granted lands in that district and moved there. But in 1827, he sold out his possessions there (land lot 314, 1st district) to William Ashley, having shortly before moved to Thomas County. In Thomas he settled in the 13th land district where he acquired three or four lots of land and established his home. But after his first wife's death he divided his lands between his children who were all married at the time, and he then bought lots 212 and 249 in the 12th district of Lowndes County, in the part that was cut into Brooks County in 1858. In 1869, he divided these lands and gave same to his children by his second wife but continued to live there until his death. The second wife died about 1870. Mr. Wooten's only public service was as Justice of Peace, 437th district Telfair County, to which he was commissioned January 21st., 1825, but which he resigned when he moved to Thomas county. He was a member of Bethel Primitive Baptist Church in Brooks County, as was also his first wife. They were received by letter in April, 1827, into Bethel Church from a church in Telfair County; Mrs. Wooten died a member, and Mr. Wooten was granted a letter of dismission in February, 1853, and placed his membership in another church nearer to his home, the identity of which has not been learned. He died a member of that church. CENSUS REFERENCES: 1820, Telfair; 1830, 1840, Thomas; 1850, Lowndes; 1860, 1870, Brooks.

Biography* She went by Fern. According to Charles Ross Culpepper, she "graduated from Ohio, Wesleyan College. Fern was working with the State Board of Health in Arkansas when we lived at Stuttgart, Arkansas. She died suddenly." A niece, Mrs. J. J. (W. Carolyn Watts) Gilinsky wrote that Una and Fitzhugh Lee Watts had no children. But Rev. George Bright Culpepper wrote on p. 4 of "ONE FAMILY - CULPEPPER" a 25 page typed manuscript completed 8 Oct 1942: One of the daughters married, bore one child, a daughter, and died. Her husband then married the other daughter, and still lives, with her husband and step-daughter in Monroe, Louisiana.
Rev. Culpepper seems to be implying that Una's daughter survived and was raised by Vera Faye but that is not consistent with the birth date or statements of Mrs. J. J. (Carolyn Watts) Gilinisky, Vera Faye's daughter.

Ended up in San Francisco with my wife a fine organist looking after all chapel services. Came home to our son and West Va. afterward and served in Parkersburg and Elkins before I became District Supt. Was able to attend five World Methodist Conferences as delegate or member of Council.

Research note*25 Apr 2012 Dad said the 2nd son section on Charles Ross and Olive O’Dell was simply incorrect. Here is his narrative in summary.

The Census of 1930 lists a son Martin Moley born Circa Nov. 1929. This is Marvin Wesley. Layer upon layer of complications here, likely also involving typo’s by census takers. Here it is:
Dad was born Nov.12, 1929. He recently went to get a birth certificate and it had him listed as Dec. 11, 1929. He said he had no idea all his life someone had transcribed the month/day and the courthouse had the wrong info. He hasn’t bothered getting it fixed. So he was born 11/12/29 NOT 12/11/29.
At the time of the 1930 Census, Charles Ross (Granddad) was not a resident of WV. He had come to WV with Uncle Burke to do Tent Revivals. Burke would preach and Granddad was Music Director. From there he met my Grandmother Olive “Ollie” O’Dell. Granddad returned the next year and he and Ollie eloped to VA to get married. Ollie was only 16 or 17 so it was covert.
After their wedding Granddad transferred to West Virginia Wesleyan where he finished College. So he was living in Buckhannon WV until Graduation in 1932.
Ollie became pregnant with Dad moved into her parents’ home in Charleston, WV until Dad was born. After the birth, they joined my Granddad in Buckhannon (circa Jan-Feb 1930).
When the 1930 Census was taken, Charles Ross was an out-of-state student at Wesleyan so they noted his residence as that of his in-laws the O’Dells in Charleston, Kanawha Co., WV. So there was no Martin Moley.
After Granddad graduated in 1932, he got a small church in Cabin Creek, WV but later moved to Boston to attend Divinity school at Boston U. School of Theology. He graduated from Boston in 1935 and the WV Methodist Conference in Sep of 1935 assigned him a church in Beckley, WV (1935 – 1938) and then Clendenin, WV (1938 – 1941).
They all lived together until my father got “scarlatina” whereupon he was moved to Charleston to live with his Grandmother and Grandfather– Minerva and Wesley O’Dell.
Dad entered 1st grade in Charleston but was moved to Beckley when his parents returned from Boston. Dad did 1st – 3rd grade in Beckley, 4th – 6th in Clendenin and back to Charleston for 6th grade.
When WWII broke out, Dad stayed in Charleston while Granddad served as a Chaplain. He finished High School in Charleston but remembers going to Camp Winfield Scott in the SF Presidio during the summers. He was in SF for V Day.

I will work diligently at getting the Apocryphal list copied but it sounds like this may just be another confirmation of a line that you guys feel to be fictional. I cannot explain it and admit to not having read all of your research notes (yet) so I’m a bit behind on this new twist. New to me that is.
I hope this helps.3
