Osborne Jackson Culpepper1

M, (circa 1825 - before 1860)
FatherBenjamin Culpepper (c 1795 - bt 1860 - 1870)
MotherSarah Daniel (c 1796 - a 1880)
DNA* Osborne has been proven by DNA and genealogical research to be a descendant of Erasmus Culpepper of Nash Co., NC, who is a great-grandson of Robert Culpepper of Lower Norfolk, VA. 
Birth*circa 1825 Osborne was born circa 1825. 
(free wh male 00-05) 1830 Census1 June 1830 Osborne and Benjamin was probably a free white male, age under 5, in Benjamin Culpepper's houshold, on the 1830 Census at Wilcox Co., Alabama. Enumerated in census but otherwise not identified are 1 M20-30, 2 F0-5 and 1 F20-30..2 
(free wh male 15-20) 1840 Census1 June 1840 Osborne and Benjamin was probably a free white male, age 15 and under 20, in Benjamin Culpepper's household, on the 1840 Census on 1 June 1840 at Wilcox Co., Alabama.
(One female 5-10 was enumerated but otherwise unaccounted for.)3 
Marriage*2 January 1851 He married Nancy Hinton at Union Parish, Louisiana, on 2 January 1851.4 
Land Grant/Patent*1856 Land was granted to Osborne Jackson Culpepper in 1856 at Lincoln Parish, Louisiana,

120 acres.5 
Death*before 1860 He died at Verda, Grant Parish, Louisiana, before 1860. 
Biography* That Osborne Jackson Culpepper was a son of Benjamin is based in part on the recollections of William George Culpepper, grandfather of Culpepper researcher Linda Cushing of Anderson, SC. According to Linda, her grandfather "listed the brothers and sisters of George L. Culpepper from memory, so that's how I got the names of Jackson, Lemuel, and William" (from her 1995 letter to Lew Griffin). Circumstantial evidence suggests that the Jackson Culpepper, son of Benjamin, was actually Osborne J. Culpepper of Louisiana. This Osborne J. Culpepper's son, Pleasant Jackson Culpepper, stated on the 1900 census that his father had been born in Alabama. There were very few Culpeppers in Alabama at an early date, so it seems almost certain that Osborne J. Culpepper and Jackson Culpepper were one and the same. If estate records for Benjamin Culpepper can be located in Clarke Co, AL, then they should confirm this. Further research is needed.

Biography* At birth, Martha was named Mattie for her mother who died two days after giving birth to Martha. Her father, Tom, was a noted Baptist preacher who died eight years later.

Effie and Mattie were raised by their uncle and aunt, McCormick and Ella Dickson Neal in McIntosh, Florida, and they appear there in the 1900 census. Ella was their mother's sister. Sadly, in December 1904, Effie and Mattie were orphaned again as McCormick died, having been preceded in death by his wife, Emma, the girls aunt.

Martha was living in Atlanta in 1915 when she married Harry Culpepper, and by when she had changed her name from Mattie to Martha. About ten years later they relocated with their young son, Stuart, to MacIntosh.

A graduate of Bessie Tift College, Martha was quite intelligent and well-read.

Following her husband's death in 1955, she moved to Gainesville, FL where she continued to served until 1962 on the University of Florida Law Review.

In 1962, she became disabled from ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, AKA Lew Gehrig's disease), and moved to Andalusia, Alabama to live in a nursing home and be near her son, Stuart. When Stuart moved to Atlanta later in 1962, she moved as well, and was residing at Martin's Nursing Home in Decatur at the time of her death in 1964 at age 71.

Dedication in the University of Florida Law Review, Vol. XIV, No. 3, Fall-Winter 1961

We are told that no man--and presumably no woman--is indispensable. It must be true, however, that the University of Florida Law Review's Martha B. Culpepper represents the closest possible approximation to that condition.

Like so many Floridians by adoption, Mrs. Culpepper is a native of Georgia. At the age of seventeen she received a bachelor of arts degree, with high honors, from Bessie Tift College, at Forsyth, Georgia. During the years 1938 to 1948 she was employed as a legal secretary in Atlanta and Jacksonville. She has served continuously as administrative assistant of the University of Florida Law Review since its establishment in 1948.

Mrs. "C," as she became known to successive generations of student editors, brought to the Law Review a sound arts education, a wealth of experience as a legal secretary, and a mature judgment that have been reflected consistently in the work of the Law Review staff and its product. Beyond these qualities, she possesses a critical perception of the English language rarely seen outside professorial circles. She, more than any other person, has guided the student writers (and on not infrequent occasions law professors and practitioners) along the rigorous path of proper English usage. Her keen sense of style has helped them to avoid the trite legalisms, the tiresome monotonies, and at the same time the rhetorical excesses to which young authors in particular are wont.
Beginning with Volume I, Number 1, Mrs. "C" has kept a watchful eye upon all the deadlines. She has helped establish and maintain an attractive, readable format, and a uniform system of citation. Limited only by the fact that twenty-four hours are allotted to each day, she has advised, encouraged, coaxed, persuaded, helped, and on rare occasions chided some forty editorial boards into producing a sound publication of which the College is justifiably proud. Even more important, she has demonstrated in her own person those qualities of devotion and high purpose that the South has always cherished in its ladies. No student who has worked closely with her could fail to be a better person for the experience.

With Martha Culpepper's help, the Law Review completes its fourteenth year a well organized, respected, and mature publication. Without her it might not have survived to reach maturity. As she looks forward to retirement on January 31, 1962, all those who have had the high privilege of being "Mrs. C's boys" join the present staff in dedicating to her, in affection and gratitude, this issue of the University of Florida Law Review.

Biography* Thomas Cooper Boykin was born in Baldwin County, Georgia on January 1, 1836, and his family moved to Columbus, Georgia shortly after his birth. He grew up in an environment of wealth and culture.

Baptized at the Columbus (GA) Baptist Church on June 22, 1851, he attended Mercer University and the University of South Carolina, where he graduated with honors in 1856 (age 20). At 22, he married Belle Alexander of Huntsville, Alabama. For nearly ten years they lived on a farm in Russell County, Alabama, just across the river from Columbus. In 1865 (age 29), he was ordained to the ministry and served as pastor of several Alabama churches, including ones in Columbiana and Montevallo. In the winter of 1867-68, he moved to Shelby County, ALabama, eleven miles north of Montevallo. He was the pastor at Montevallo, Columbiana and Union chirches in Shelby County, and at Canaan Church in Jefferson County. In 1871, he assumed the Presidency of the Sunday School Board of Alabama.

In 1874, he was appointed by the Sunday School Board of Georgia to the position of Sunday School Evangelist. In this position, he made a systematic canvass of the Baptist churches of the whole state. His brother, Samuel, was editor of "Kind Words", a Baptist Sunday school publication. The work of each brother supplemented the other. Samuel supplied the literature; Thomas organized the schools. From their direct efforts over a 30 year period, over 1,500 Sunday Schools were formed in Alabama and Georgia. Their efforts were particularly noteworthy, for in the 1800's, the Sunday School had to fight its way into recognition by Baptist churches of the South. In many churches there were bitter debates as to whether it was scriptural for a church to organize a Sunday School. In the mid 1800's in Richmond, VA, the First Baptist Church withdrew fellowship from those who wanted to organize a Sunday School. However, by the early 1900's, Sunday School programs had become ubiquitous in Baptist churches, thanks in no small part to the work of the Boykin brothers.

Thomas and Belle had eight children. In 1879, at the age of 40, Belle died at 34 Windsor Street, Atlanta, and is buried in Oakland Cemetery. In 1881, Thomas married Mattie Dickson, of Talbot County, Georgia, who bore him two daughters. Eleanor, the oldest, became Editor of Vogue Magazine. On February 20, 1893, Mattie died from complications in birthing her second child, Martha, and was buried in Oakland Cemetery.

After Mattie's death, Thomas accepted the call in 1894 of the Sunday School Board of Texas, and he served there for four years. According to the May 1936 issue of "The Teacher", published by the Southern Baptist Sunday School Board, "In heat and in cold, in rain and in sunshine, over muddy roads and dusty highways, on horseback, in buggies, or on the train, with the slogan ever before him, 'a Sunday school in every Baptist church,' he toiled at his task to the utmost of his powers of body, mind, and soul."

In 1898, he returned to Georgia and spent his declining years with his son, Basil Manly Boykin. He died December 3, 1901 and was buried in the family lot in Oakland Cemetery, Atlanta.

Letter from Mattie Boykin [age 35] in Decatur, GA to her step-son, Manly Boykin [age 23] in Lamar, Barton Co., MO.

My Dear Manly,
     You begin to think, no doubt, that I am as slow to reply as you were to write. I have been trying to do so ever since the reception of your letter.
     I was glad to hear from all and that Eva [Eva Paxton Boykin, 24, sister-in-law of Manly and step-daughter of Mattie] and the children were so much benefitted by their stay in the country.
     We were moving along in a quiet way, enjoying the baby [Effie/Eleanor Boykin, her daughter who was three days short of one year old], if not everything else that comes into our lives. Narcissa [a reference to Eleanor] has improved very much in so many respects since you were here and is, of course, a growing delight. The "Baby Tender" has been a blessing truly.
     It has strengthened her limbs and given her a great deal of pleasure. She just runs all about in any direction she wishes -- in the "Tender" I mean. She pulls up by chairs on anything convenient and walks around them some. I do not think it will be a great while before she walks.
     You know already of Florence's visit and the length of it. [Florence Barnard, age 18]. I have never had any girl visit in the house who was so pleasant in every way. I got better acquainted with her than ever before and love her that much the more. She did not tell you some things about her stay in Decatur that I certainly will not hesitate to tell you. Perhaps you know she spent a day and night at Mrs. Ramspick's. Mr R. told her she had the advantages of Mamie [identity unknown], that she was here, getting on the good side of me, "Jm(?) Manly"! A mean little thing for him to say. Mrs. R. also joined in and said the same thing in a little different way! As if Florence was the kind of girl to do such a thing!
     Mamie showed her the heart you gave her and told her where she got it -- said she was sorry you did not give her the "love-chain" with it, but she supposed she would get that Christmas! I tell you so you may not disappoint her! She also showed Florence her private "memorial book" and in it a piece of sentimental poetry marked underneath "From B. M. B." They quizzed her to know if you had written to her -- and of course she was too truthful to deny it. Mamie asked her to tell you she would answer your letter in about six months! I wish I could talk with you -- I would tell more than I will write -- some things about the R's that would seem too trivial to write.
     I want to say some other things to you in all seriousness and affection. I certainly feel a deep interest in your future -- and I trust you will let me speak freely to you. I love Florence, too, and feel more interest in her welfare than when you were here. What I want to say is, that if you do not truly and sincerely love Florence, I want you to let her alone. Don't make her think you love her if you do not. I do not know that you could win her love easily, after those two years of leaving her alone -- but do not try unless you will love her on to the end, as any woman with a woman's heart wants to be loved -- supremely.
     I feel for Florence, something of the same kind of concern I will for Belle [Belle Boykin, age 18, Manly's sister and Mattie's step-daughter] when the time comes and I tell you I do not want ever you to trifle the least bit with her. Your going to see her the second time, and writing after you go away, with what you said makes it hard for me to conjecture what your correspondence will lead to. And if you do love her, in justice to her, you surely ought not to continue a course that would lead another to think you aren't in love with her. I should have said in justice to yourself -- for I do not see how you can expect the respect of Florence otherwise.
     Florence would be shocked, no doubt, if she knew I had foreseen to write all this of her -- but it is love for her as well as you that has prompted me. I remember so well, too, the undecided way you spoke of your feelings when here. Since your visit home, I have been more anxious about your future and sincerely interested than before. You understand why. If it seems to you I have gone beyond my privilege in what I have said, that has been my inspiration, and if my words have been out of place in regard to Florence, think no more about them.
     Belle was sick in bed for several days a few weeks ago, but is well now and seems to be doing well.
     Your father [Rev. Thomas Cooper Boykin, Mattie's husband and a Baptist evangelist who traveled a great deal] has not been at home more than a few days at a time since you were here. He is well as usual.
     Give my love to Jim, Eva and the children and include yourself in the division.
               Sincerely,
               Miss Mattie

[Note: Mattie died just three months later, on 22 Feb 1893, two days after giving birth to Martha Boykin, who later married Harry Stuart Culpepper, Sr. Three weeks after Mattie's death, on 16 Mar 1893, Manly Boykin married Florence Barnard.]. 
Death*22 February 1893 She died at Decatur, DeKalb Co., Georgia, on 22 February 1893
Mattie died two days after giving birth to her daughter Mattie.7,8 
Burial*23 February 1893 Her body was interred on 23 February 1893 at Oakland Cemetery, Atlanta, Fulton Co., Georgia. (Block 380, Lot 1).7 
Obituary*23 February 1893 "DEATH OF AN ESTEEMED LADY. Mrs. T. C. Boykin, the wife of Rev. T. C. Boykin, died at her home in Decatur yesterday morning. The intelligence of her death will carry genuine sorrow to many hearts. In her manner amiable, and in all her actions consistently Christian, she was a power for good and was universally loved by everyone who knew her. Her death will be a great loss to the community and to church of which she was a member. She was ill for only a short length of time, and few of her friends in Atlanta were apprised of her condition. She endured her sufferings, however, with a patient recognition, and the end came peacefully and happily. She was surrounded by the immediate members of the household, who had been constant and unremitting in their attention. Mr. Boykin has many friends in Atlanta and throughout Georgia who will sympathize with him tenderly in his great affliction. "

"FUNERAL OF MRS. BOYKIN. The funeral of Mrs. T. C. Boykin occurred from her home in Decatur, Ga., yesterday morning at 10:00 o'clock. There was a large attendance of friends and acquaintances, and the services were a s beautiful as appropriate. Many touching and tender allusions were made to her Christian life and character, but to those who knew her the sweetest eulogy was the memory of her gentle disposition and the many acts of friendship and charity which she performed. The floral offerings were in the shape of many exquisite emblems, indicative of the happy assurance that were felt in her future state of happiness and immortality. Dr. Boykin has the sympathy of a large circle of friends who feel for him in his present affliction. The interment was made in the cemetery at Decatur, and the exercises at the grave, like those in the church, were solemnly impressive and beautiful."9,8

  10. Dates are from T. C. Boykin notes, provided by Bunny Saussy. Evie was still born, and based on her position in the notes, she appears to have been first child by Mattie Dickson. A month and day was given, but the year is 188?. Thus, as Mattie and T. C. married in May 1881, the birth/death could have been either 1882 or 1883.
