In 1906 he built a second house on the same land. This house was ½ mile from Ebenezer Church, graveyard, and baptizing place. It was 10 miles from Jonesboro, LA. In 1939 a third house was built on the same land. He had two sets of children and was still living on the same land at his death in 1952. The address was Route 1, Chatham, La. The house and land was deeded to son, Luther Culpepper in 1941, except for 1.40 acres to Bennie Culpepper and 3.40 to Joe Allen. Written by Cynthia Ann Culpepper in 1950.7

JOHN BAXTER
Died at Tyrone Thursday evening Aug. 18th 1897, Mr. John Baxter
age 75 years 7 months and 7 days. Mr. Baxter was a native on North
Carolina but moved with his parents when quite young to Middle
Tennessee where he lived until 1849, when he came to Arkansas and
cast his lot with the people of this section of the state. He lived the
first two years within the present limits of Smith township. In 1851
he married Miss Mary A. Culpepper with whom he lived a pleasant life until death separated him from her. Mr. Baxter was a well informed man as to the history of the country and as to current events. He was always a great reader. He was an industrious, a kind hearted and a generous man, but not a first class manager. He made money, but never understood the art of investing or keeping it. He leaves a wife and three children, Mrs. Wade Preston, S.I. and W.P. Baxter and many sorrowing friends, with whom the Herald sympathizes. His remains were intered at Bethlehem grave-yard Aug 20th. Peace to his ashes.

ELIZABETH GREENVILLE GREENLEES HARRISON CULPEPPER
.
Elizabeth Greenville Greenlees was born in Ala. March 28th, 1834, came with her parents to Ark. in 1851. Was twice married first to James C. Harrison, in 1858 afterwards to John C. Culpepper in 1867 and died at her home in Rison, Ark., Oct. 11, 1905. In early woman-hood she joined the M.E.C. South, and remained a consistent member of the same till the day of her translation.
It is no empty eulogy to say that in all the relations of life, she
measured up to the highest standard of what she conceivd to be her duty.
Her last illnes was many months. duration yet she bore her sufferings
with a patience and fortitude which evidenced the sustaining power of God's grace.
Calm and conscious till the tide of life had ebbed away and the last
pulse had tolled her funeral dirge, she knew no terror, felt no despair,
but with a trust unshaken she went Joyfully and serenely down into the valley of the shadow of death. Those who loved her doubt not that she received the welcome invitation "Come you blessed of my Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you".
Besides her husband she leaves one daughter, five sons and several grandchildren. To these our tenderest sympathies go forth; especially to the aged companion by whose side she journeyed so many years. It will not be long till he shall join her in that land of the _?_ where no sad partings ever come. May he be ever in God's holy keeping.
Beneath the flower strewn mound in the City Cemetery lies her sacred dust, her soul is triumphant in the Etysian Fields of the blest.
May all who love her meet her there.
Her friend Oct. 17, 1905.
