John Culpepper of Marion Co., MS

M, (say 1794 - circa 1840)
Father-Ado0Rev. John Culpepper Jr. of Hancock Co., MS1 (s 1764 - 1837)
Mother-Ado0Mary Stokes1 (7 Oct 1757 - b Apr 1843)
DNA* DNA testing of descendants of different sons of John Culpepper of Marion Co., MS show that the descendants are related to each other but not to the mainline of Culpeppers. However, John's descendants are related to two different individuals with the surname of Shelton. At one time, John was though to be the biological son of Rev. John Culpepper Jr. Since Rev. John had another son named John (of Lawrence Co., MS), it is possible that the John of Marion County was adopted by Rev. John.2 
Birth*say 1794 John was born at Washington Co., Georgia, say 1794.3 
Deed*May 1812 He was party to a deed in May 1812 at Hancock Co., Mississippi,

John Culpepper, Sen., claimant, Oct 1819, John Culpepper, Jun., original claimant, Spring 1812, On south side of Taylor's Creek.4 
Marriage*circa 1819 He married Keziah Taylor at Hancock Co., Mississippi, circa 1819. 
Deed*October 1819 He was granted a deed by Rev. John Culpepper Jr. of Hancock Co., MS in October 1819 at Hancock Co., Mississippi,

John Culpepper, Sen., claimant, Oct 1819, John Culpepper, Jun., original claimant, Spring 1812, On south side of Taylor's Creek.4 
Tax roll*1820 He registered to pay taxes at Hancock Co., Mississippi, in 1820.5 
1820 Census*7 August 1820 John was listed as the head of a family on the 1820 Census at Hancock Co., Mississippi. Enumerated in the census but otherwise not identified is 1 M0-10.3 
Tax roll1824 He registered to pay taxes at Hancock Co., Mississippi, in 1824.6 
Tax roll1828 He registered to pay taxes at Hancock Co., Mississippi, in 1828.7 
Relocation*circa 1830 He relocated circa 1830 at Marion Co., Mississippi; Around 1830, the part of Hancock County where the Culpeppers lived became part of an expanded Marion Co., Mississippi. In 1890, this area became part of Pearl River Co. 
Tax roll*between 1831 and 1833 A John Culpepper was listed in the 1831 and 1833 Personal Tax Rolls for Hinds County, MS, but it is not known whether this was John Culpepper of Marion Co., MS or John Culpepper of Lawrence Co., MS. Most likely it was the latter. 
Death*circa 1840 He died circa 1840
It is likely that John died after his daughter Fanny was conceived but before her birth and before the move of Keziah and their children to Covington Co., MS. 
Deed17 December 1840 The following action taken by the tax collector of Marion Co., Mississippi on 17 December 1840 probably occurred after John's death:
     "David Summers, Tax collector, having assessed cert. in tracts claimed in the name of JOHN CULPEPPER, one, and the other in the name of Thomas Anderson held by right of donation as the property of the estate of Solomon and Joseph Ford, assignees of JOHN CULPEPPER and Thoma Anderson -- said tracts containing one 500 acres and the other 671 acres -- held in joint tenancy for the years 1838 -- 1839 and which assessment on the part of the said estate of Solomon Ford along with claims of Robert Jones and Gabriel Blackburn and other collectors from 1832 to 1837 amounts to $47.04 on the part of Solomon Ford's Estate (Adm. having paid taes on Joseph Ford's Estate) -- Have seized the Solomon Ford Estate and offer for sale for taxes and cost -- land in SW quarter of sec. 29, and S half of Sec. 30, T 1, R 17 W, 507.14 acres bounded N. by Hennegar's claim, E by pine woods, S. by Davenport, and W by Pearl River. Struck off to Ebenezer Ford (Adm. of Joseph Ford Estate) as the purchaser having bid $48 which was the highest and last bid. Dated June 17, 1840."8

Extinct Surname?* The family branch headed by Sampson Culpepper of Mississippi is believed to have no living male descendants with the Culpepper surname. If you know otherwise, please contact Lew Griffin using the link at the bottom of this page. 
Birth*8 March 1787 Sampson was born at Washington Co., Georgia, on 8 March 1787.1 
Marriage*say 1811 He married (?) (?) say 1811. 
Biography* Sampson Culpepper's wife is unknown, but it is clear that he married as he had at least one daughter, who was under the age of ten in the 1820 census of Hancock County, MS. The 1820 census lists another woman in his household aged 16 to 26, so she was born between 1793 and 1804. This was probably Sampson's wife, and she was probably born around 1793. This would make her about 19 years old when Louisa was born. She probably named her daughter Louisa after her mother. She seems to have died soon thereafter as no further children have been found for this marriage. 
Tax roll*1820 He registered to pay taxes at Hancock Co., Mississippi, in 1820.2 
1820 Census*7 August 1820 Sampson was listed as the head of a family on the 1820 Census at Hancock Co., Mississippi. Enumerated in the census but otherwise not identified is 1 F16-26..3 
Tax roll1821 He registered to pay taxes at Hancock Co., Mississippi, in 1821.4 
Residence*1821 Sampson resided at Hancock Co., Mississippi, in 1821.5 
Death*between 1821 and 1843 He died at Mississippi between 1821 and 1843. 
Research note*3 June 2004 Research in early Mississippi is difficult, but further research is certainly needed on this family.

Your help with this person will be appreciated. Contact Lew Griffin (see footnote for details).6

FatherDavid Culpepper of Laurens Co. GA (16 Dec 1768 - 21 Jul 1832)
MotherElizabeth Hogan (6 Mar 1775 - 9 Jan 1849)
Birth*circa 1794 Patsy was born at Georgia circa 1794. That Patsy was the daughter of David Culpepper and Elizabeth Hogan is based on circumstantial evidence. 
Marriage*circa 1812 She married Joel W. Butler at Georgia circa 1812. 
Married Namecirca 1812  As of circa 1812, her married name was Butler. 
Married Name25 January 1821  As of 25 January 1821, her married name was O'Neal.2 
Marriage*25 January 1821 She married Theophilus O'Neal at Laurens Co., Georgia, on 25 January 1821. Joel Butler married Patsy Culpepper circa 1812 and they had three children, the last born in 1817. Joel married 2nd, Belinda Smith, circa 1830. Thus, it is possible that Patsy and Joel divorced after 1817 and before Patsy's marriage to Theophilus O'Neal in 1821.
     Or, there may be two different Patsy's, one who married Joel Butler and one who married Theophilus O'Neal. In this instance, it is not clear who the parents of the second Patsy may be. Some researchers with family trees on the Internet suggest that Patsy Culpepper O'Neal may be a daughter of Daniel Culpepper, but we have seen no evidence to support that.2

Nancy Horne1

F, (circa 1805 - )
Birth*circa 1805 Nancy was born at South Carolina circa 1805. 
Marriage*circa 1819 She married Benjamin Culpepper of Dooly Co., GA at Georgia circa 1819. 
Married Namecirca 1819  As of circa 1819, her married name was Culpepper. 
(free wh female 20-30) 1830 Census1 June 1830 Nancy was probably a free white female, age 20 and under 30, in Benjamin Culpepper of Dooly Co., GA's household, on the 1830 Census at Dooly Co., Georgia.2 
(free wh female 40-50) 1840 Census1 June 1840 Nancy was probably a free white female, age 40 and under 50, in Benjamin Culpepper of Dooly Co., GA's household, on the 1840 Census on 1 June 1840 at Dooly Co., Georgia.3 
(Household member) 1850 Census1 June 1850 Susan, Benjamin, Martha, Sarah, David and Nancy listed as a household member living with Benjamin Culpepper of Dooly Co., GA on the 1850 Census on 1 June 1850 at Dooly Co., Georgia.4 
Research note*19 April 2012 We do not have proof that Nancy Horne was the daughter of Cullen Horne and Elizabeth Cowart, either. I did find cemetery records for Cullen and his wife (below) in Macon County, GA, so I would suggest looking there for some sort of probate record. There is probably also a Bible record floating around somewhere, since Cullen and his wife both have exact dates of birth and death. See FindaGrave.com for a picture of the stone.
     I would tend to assume that Arthur Bryant Horne is from this Horne family of Edgecombe County, NC. In fact, an Arthur Bryant died in Wayne County, NC, adjacent to Edgecombe, in 1807, so there may be some connection to him as well. See:
http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~lewgriffin/p12.htm#i194

Nancy is said to be the daughter of Cullen Horne, b. 2/10/1777 in Edgecombe Co., NC, d. 4/22/1846 who married Elizabeth Cowart. Their children were Michal [female], Joab, Thomas Nathaniel, Nancy, Jack, Joel Ricks, Courtney, John Eli Jefferson, and William. See:

Regarding:Nancy Horne (c1805), wife of Benjamin Culpepper (c1792-1851)

Hi Warren,

Can you tell me if there's any speculation as to who Nancy Horne's parents might be? Also, is there any indication she is related to Arthur Bryant Horne? I've been trying to research this and not finding anything conclusive. A couple of family trees I've found online indicate that Cullen Horne (1777-1846) and Elizabeth Cowart Horne (1784-1836) were Nancy's parents, but they don't offer any documentation to back this up. Do you have any idea? Thanks.

Biography David Sneads Culpepper moved with his family about 1835 from Laurens County, Georgia, to Dooly, now. Crisp County, and settled in this immediate vicinity at what is now Daphne. Their first home was a one-room rough-log house with shed on one side for the slaves to sleep in. Cooking was done outside in the open. Later a better house was built -- a double-pen log structure, ruins of which are observable a short distance west of the flowing well at Daphne.
     On the way from Laurens County, the family camped one night on the east side of the Ocmulgee River near Hawkinsville, at the home-place of a farmer, or cattleman. The trip was made in oxcarts, in which were brought hogs, cattle, chickens, slaves, and other property belonging to the family. The journey was made by way of the old Blackshear Road that was opened in 1814. At this camping place this incident occurred: Next morning before resuming the journey, one of the farmer's pigs joined the Culpepper pigs on the raft near Hawkinsville and went with his new found pig acquaintances a full-day's journey. Upon return that way several weeks thereafter, Mr. Culpepper made inquiry of his farmer friend and was informed that the run-away pig had, for some pig reason satisfactory to itself, repented and come back home to his Pa and Ma, having swum the river to accomplish the feat."35 
Biography* A descendant, P. Melton Culpepper, Jr., wrote 22 Mar 1991: Sneads' log cabin was mentioned in a history on Crisp County written in 1931 (see below). The general location was refered to in proximity to a flowing well which is still present in the Georgia Veterans State Park in this County. A former superintendant of the Park in his 70's remembered where an old log cabin once burned which was the same one mentioned in the History. He pointed it out to me and I went there and dug around and found some old square nails and broken glass.36 
Family Bible* David Sneads Culpepper Family Bible
Dooly Co., GA

The Holy Bible
containing the Old and New Testaments
Cooperstown, NY
Published by H. & E. Phinney, 1846


This bible was said to have originally been the property of David Sneads Culpepper (29 Jul 1816 - 5 Mar 1886), son of David Culpepper and Elizabeth Hogan. It was given to his youngest daughter, Julia Emma Culpepper Brown, who is thought to have made many of the entries in it. She died childless, and at her death it was given to her great-nephew, Samuel Jackson Culpepper, son of Thomas Albert Culpepper. Samuel died on 3 Jul 1970 in Crisp Co., GA, but the Bible had been given to his youngest son, Leon Raines Culpepper in 1962. On 1 Mar 1985, Leon, who did not have any natural male children, gave the Bible to his nephew, Perry Melton Culpepper, Jr. (Melton)36.

Leon had had the Bible repaired, but the original cover was retained. When the Bible was received by Melton, there was a small photograph of Julia Brown taped on the inside leaf in the front.

As of August 2004, Melton still owns the Bible and has willed it to his son, Jackson Campbell Culpepper. Melton also wrote the text above.

Photocopies of the Bible's family history pages have been provided to the Georgia Department of Archives and to Culpepper Connections!

The transcription below was done by Warren L. Culpepper, publisher of Culpepper Connections! In so far as possible, the sequence, wording, spelling and style were all retained exactly as found. Text in parentheses represents notations by Warren. The parenthetical text following each entry gives (1) the relationship of the person to David Sneads Culpepper and (2) that person's #number within the Culpepper Family Tree. Based on Warren's analysis of handwriting styles, he believes that the events dated prior to 1867 were written by one person, and subsequent events by another, probably Julia Culpepper Brown.

Biography* Confederate Memorial Day remembers soldiers
By Jaine Treadwell, The Messenger

A small crowd gathered on the square in Troy Wednesday to honor the Confederate soldiers who served during the conflict that is often called the “Second American Revolution” or the “War for Southern Independence.

Although Monday, April 24 was the official observance of Confederate Memorial Day, the Pvt. Augustus Braddy Camp of the Sons of Confederate Veterans and the local United Daughters of the Confederacy chose to honor their ancestors on April 26, Confederate Memorial Day.

“Those who fought for the South came from cities like Montgomery and from small towns such as Troy,” said Bob McLendon, camp commander. “They were doctors lawyers and businessmen but the large majority were simple farmers. Their country was at war and they felt it was their duty to answer the call to arms. No honorable man would do otherwise. These men left their families and their loved ones and followed their commanding officers off to a fat that they could not predict.”

In 1861, both sides believed the war would be short. Soldiers left with bands playing and people rejoicing in the thought that a grand and glorious war was to take place and no young man wanted to be left out and they hurried,” McLendon said. “The men rode off to war laden with the prayers and blessings of their noble Southern women.”

But as time went on, names including Manassas, Shiloh, Sharpsburg, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg and Chickamauga became familiar to everyone, both North and South. Everyone had felt the reality of war, with its hardships and its pain.

McLendon said that the dedication of the young men of the South is exemplified in the story of a young Georgia farmer.

“Gen. Peter McGlashan said that when he was colonel of the 50th Georgia Infantry at the battle of Salem Church during the Chancellorsville campaign, he received word that a young private wanted to see him.

The colonel found Pvt. David Culpepper lying on a stretcher. Doctors gave him no chance of survival. A bullet had struck him in the temple, tearing out both eyes.

“The young private responded to the colonel's words of concern by saying, ‘Colonel, don't worry about me. I have always done my duty, haven't I?'”

The colonel told the private that he had always done his duty as a good and faithful soldier. The young soldier then asked, “Colonel, if you make it home, please tell my family that ol' David Culpepper died doing his duty.”

“We are here today because of the many thousands of Southerners like David Culpepper,” McLendon said. “Some today may ask, ‘Why won't you Southerners forget the war? Why won't you realize you lost the war?'

“We Southerners realized that the South lost the war and we would surely not want to fight that terrible conflict again. But the same code of honor that drove our ancestors drives us today to insure that their sacrifices and the values they cherished are not forgotten.

“That same code of honor makes us say, ‘Yes, the Confederacy lost the war, but Southerners, as a people, will never be defeated.”

McLendon closed the ceremony with the words of President Calvin Coolidge in an address at a Confederate Memorial Day service at Arlington National Cemetery.

“A small number of gray-clad Confederate veterans and their families were among those who had gathered for the ceremony,” McLendon said. “President Coolidge spoke directly to them, saying, ‘Your country respects you for cherishing the memory of those who wore the gray . You respect those who wore the blue. In that mutual respect, may there be a firmer friendship and a more glorious union.'

“It is that mutual respect that allows us to be here today to memorialize the sacrifices of our ancestors - the sacrifices they made for us and for future generations. May we always cherish their memory.”.16

Culpepper is listed in the confederate service records for the 50th Georgia as having been sent home on 30 day furlough by a surgeon. No further record, and no indication he died at Chancellorsville.
