Biography* "My mother was always told that Everett and Edd were twins. (I have a photo of the two of them as adults.) She received a letter from her first cousin (John) Leland Culpepper (written February, 1969) stating that the were the survivors of tripletts - a girl died at birth. The information/biography for Edd gives that "fact," but Everett's does not. Also, Edd and Everett's years of birth differ in "the tree" by 4 years. It's very confusing; my grandmother gave Everett's date of birth as January 2, 1883 on his death certificate information. I'm not sure if the Edna indicated with circa 1883 might be the girl that died at birth."8

M, (3 January 1883 - 26 May 1918)
FatherBenjamin M. Culpepper (2 Oct 1845 - c 1896)
MotherMary Ellen Grace (8 Jan 1850 - 2 Apr 1899)
Birth3 January 1881 Everett was born at Choctaw Co., Alabama, on 3 January 1881. 
Birth2 January 1883 He was born on 2 January 1883 at Choctaw Co., Alabama.1 
Birth*3 January 1883 He was born on 3 January 1883 at Choctaw Co., Alabama.2 
Biography Edd McCall was born only 15 minutes before his twin brother Everett Hall Culpepper, one was born before midnight and the other after. 
(Brother) 1900 Census1 June 1900 Edward, Everett and John was listed as a brother in William Benjamin Culpepper's household on the 1900 Census at Meridian, Lauderdale Co., Mississippi.3 
Marriage*21 January 1903 He married Lula Bell Dahmer at Meridian, Lauderdale Co., Mississippi, on 21 January 1903 at age 20. 
Divorce*16 November 1906 He and Lula Bell Dahmer were divorced on 16 November 1906 at Lauderdale Co., Mississippi.4 
Marriage*22 December 1909 He married Margaret Ann Johler on 22 December 1909 at age 26. 
Death*26 May 1918 He died at Saint Louis, Saint Louis Co., Missouri, on 26 May 1918 at age 35
Everett drowned on a fishing trip.5 
Biography* "My mother was always told that Everett and Edd were twins. (I have a photo of the two of them as adults.) She received a letter from her first cousin (John) Leland Culpepper (written February, 1969) stating that the were the survivors of tripletts - a girl died at birth. The information/biography for Edd gives that "fact," but Everett's does not. Also, Edd and Everett's years of birth differ in "the tree" by 4 years. It's very confusing; my grandmother gave Everett's date of birth as January 2, 1883 on his death certificate information. I'm not sure if the Edna indicated with circa 1883 might be the girl that died at birth."6

Biography* The Experiences of a Civil War Soldier: Dennis Welch

Background
     Dennis Welch, was born August 27, 1827 in Wilcox County, AL. His wife, Rebecca I. Culpepper was born November 20, 1836 in Lauderdale County, MS, and they were married February 5, 1854.
     When Dennis was 14 years old, his father died. This left Dennis trying to farm and take care of his mother and siblings. At some point thereafter, his half-brother, Dr. Jacob Welch, took over the running of his father's farm and brought the family to his large plantation in Lauderdale Co., MS (Alamucha), which consisted of 3,000 acres and sixty slaves.
     Dr. Jacob stated that transportation was very primitive before the Civil War and for many years thereafter. Several plantation owners would band together annually and make a wagon caravan trip to Mobile to trade. As life was leisurely then, the round trip usually took several weeks. The mule or ox teams would make twenty or thirty miles a day, according to the condition of the roads. The travelers usually camped where ever night overtook them and spent the night around a campfire. After the evening meal the jug of "merry water" made on the plantation was bought out to key up the spirits of the travelers and put them in a happy or fighting mood. Upon returning home, they were eagerly greeted by their families and the slaves, for they usually brought back presents as well as news. Summer trips were made in carriages or on horseback. The Welches had carriages and a slave trained as a coachman, although the women of the family, as well as the men, made journeys to neighboring plantations on horseback. As for the fields, fertilizer was not much in use in those days. The fields were fertile and produced abundant crops without it. Cotton seed was considered worthless and hauled out in the woods and dumped. The cotton itself was ginned on the place by an old fashioned horse gin. It was operated by two mules who were hitched to both ends of a long lever and made to go around in endless circles.
     Tomatoes were grown as decorative plants and not used for food, being called "love apples" at that time. They were so tempting in appearance that the children had to be watched to be kept from eating them. Finally, it was discovered that they were good to eat and not poisonous.

The War, as told by Dr. Jacob Welch, the half-brother of Dennis:
     "The war beginning in the early months of 1861, which with 1862, both years being failures in crops, in consequence of unprecedented droughts throughout the southern states, made the chances more unfavorable for success of the south. And a severe task for the people to supply provisions to supply the needs of the army. It lasted four long years with the loss of our slaves and nearly everything else that we formerly had in abundance with ruinous taxes and heavy tithes - having myself to pay a tax during the war, in one year of $1280.00 and 1200 bushels of corn, besides able servant hands to work on forts, railroads and government works, besides others provisions such as food, clothing, mules, horses, beeves, etc. Oh, it was an awful time! Indeed it was.
     In 1864, General Sherman with an overwhelming army of the Union side, came from Vicksburg to Meridian, where Gen. Polk was at the head and command of our Confederate army of about 8,000 men, who, not being strong enough to contend with Sherman, retreated for Demopolis, AL and halted a day and night here at Alamutcha, filling the whole neighborhood with soldiers - who took nearly all the provisions of corn and meat - stock - oats -potatoes - in fact everything they could find for supplies and it being quite cold weather (February 14th, 1864) they burnt up all the rails of my fence around home, and along the road reaching east across Alamutcha creek, nearly two miles in extent, amounting to many thousand rails. They left us, out of a large crib of corn, only about forty bushels to feed a large family, although I had already paid my tythe tax of several hundred bushels. They also took nearly all of the pork we had and left us with almost nothing to live on and therefore had to rush off a large portion of our family servants with four wagons and teams to the old neighborhood in Georgia to be fed, in the care of our young son, William T. Welch- going with him myself to help him on as far as Selma, and see the safely across the Bigbee River, etc. This sending servants, wagons, mules, etc. took place before the Confederate Army reached our neighborhood, else we would hardly have had anything of stock or vehicles left us; for our army was nearly as bad in seizing upon anything wanted, as was the enemy, with the exception of burning up houses. We had nearly two hundred head of goats and an equal number of cattle and a large number of hogs--a number yet in pens for pork that we had yet to slaughter. The most of the fattening hogs they took and killed besides several thousand pounds of pork we had put up in the smoke house to supply us the year. As it turned out, I never got back but very few of the stock sent off. We sent off to GA twelve mules with wagons and most of the servants, for want of supplies to support them here -keeping two yoke of oxen and a few cows for milk, and the army took the steers for beef, despite of me. We had at least 100 bushels of potatoes. At my request, a guard was put over them for protection, which we hoped were safe, but after the army left we found the potatoes all gone. The soldiers stole them. Awful times.

The preceding information comes mostly from the Autobiography of Dr. Jacob Welch of Lauderdale Co., MS and transcribed by his great grandson, A. Jarvis Welch. This autobiography can be found in the Lauderdale County, MS Archives. Dr. Jacob Welch is the half-brother of Dennis, who helped raise Dennis and his siblings after the death of his father.

From the notes of Eric Austin Welch (1893-1978), the grandson of Dennis and Rebecca.
     My grandfather Dennis served three years and nine months and fought at the Battles of Shilo and Vicksburg. He was taken prisoner and sent to Rock Island Prison in Illinois. After the war was over, Dennis walked two-thirds of the way home. There he found his wife and children sick, ragged and hungry. Federal troops under Co. Grierson had carried away everything of value on the Welch plantation. The land was grown up in weeds, the cabins abandoned and desolation everywhere. The time was in the fall of the year, too late to plant crops. There were a few stray cows and a few mules that had been inadvertently left behind. Dennis, Rebecca and their family somehow survived the winter and gained back some of their health and strength. With the help of a few ex-slaves, they planted a crop in the spring. Cotton was sixty cents a pound when it was gathered in the fall. This good fortune gave Dennis a stake which enabled him to strike out on his own, which he later did. At about the year of 1870, the production of cotton caught up with the demand and the price on the Liverpool market declined to the pre-war level of eight cents a pound. Dennis decided to move to between Newton and Hickory in Newton Co., MS in a community called Poplar Springs. Dennis and Rebecca Welch and family left Lauderdale by wagon train bound for Newton Co. The party consisted also of Dempsey (Dennis' brother) and his wife Tilitha, Daniel, Priscilla and husband Druary Yarbrough, Rebeccas sister, Nancy Culpepper Harris, wife of Michael Harris.
     According to Eric's notes, Nancy's husband Michael Harris died while enroute. He also states that four years after Rebecca's death, Dennis married his sister-in-law, Nancy Culpepper Harris.

Letter written by Dennis, over thirty years after the war, to his daughter Media Welch Sheppard. Media (Almeda) was born a year or so after the war was over. Rebecca Culpepper, the wife of Dennis and mother of Media, apparently had died prior to this letter being written.
