Biography* Rev. Lewis Peek Culpepper recorded his wife's birth in his Bible: _________________________Sarah Ann Culpepper _________________________his wife was born on the _______________________________________ 1817
      When he recorded Sarah's death, he added that she died "age 40 years." The 0 was then written over by 5 and finally the 45 was crossed out and 41 was written above it and "27 da" was written on the line below as if he was starting to calculate her exact age at death realized that he was not sure of Sarah's date of birth. As written, it would seem to indicate a date of birth of 2 Mar 1817. In the 1850 census, in which the census taker was Joseph Richard Culpepper, Sarah Ann Culpepper's father, Sarah's age was given as 32 which would indicate a birth in the last half of 1817 or the first half of 1818. Sarah's parents were still living in Pike Co., GA when Sarah died and Rev. Lewis P. Culpepper must have gotten Sarah's date of birth from them because the following excerpt is from a death notice that was published in the 13 May 1858 issue of the Southern Christian Advocate and was excerpted by Brent H. Holcomb in Vol. I of Marriage and Death Notices from the Southern Christian Advocate: Mrs. Sarah A. Culpepper, wife of Rev. L. P. Culpepper, and daughter of Joseph R. and Sylvia Culpepper, was born in South Carolina, Nov. 21st, 1817, and died in Pike Co., Ga., March 29th, 1858....
      Sarah is noted as one of two females under 10 years of age in the 1820 census of Abbeville District, SC. Since this is where her father was raised and where he was still living, it is believed to have been Sarah's place of birth. By 1830, Sarah's father had moved his family to Pike Co., GA where Sarah was noted as one of three females 10-15 year old in the household of her father.
      Rev. Lewis P. Culpepper recorded his marriage to Sarah in his Bible: _________________________Lewis P. Culpepper _________________________was married to _________________________Sarah Ann Culpepper _________________________on the 12th of Dec 1839
      The following are Pike Co., GA records (p. 209?): _________________________Georgia Pike County To any Judge, Justice of the Inferior Court Justice of the Peace or minister of the Gospel, you are hereby authorized to Join Lewis P. Culpeper to Sarah Ann Culpeper in the holy state of matrimony according to the constitution and laws of this State: and for so doing this shall be your sufficient license. Given under my hand and Seal this 7th day of December 1839. _________________________H. G. Johnson C.C. _________________________Georgia Pike County I certify that Lewis P Culpeper and Sarah Ann Culpeper were duly Joined in matrimony by me this 12tth day of December 1839. _________________________Josiah E. Nunally J P
      Finally, Rev. Lewis P. Culpepper recorded Sarah's death: _________________________Sarah Ann Culpepper _________________________My beloved wife departed _________________________this Life March the _________________________29th 1858 age [40, 45 then] 41 years _________________________27 da
      Sarah would have been 40 years 4 months and 8 days old at her death. Mrs. G. R. (Margaret Culpepper) Trimble, the youngest daughter of Lewis P. Culpepper and his second wife, wrote about Sarah in a 17 Dec 1949 letter to Sarah's great-granddaughter, Mary Erom Griffin: "Father said they [Lewis and Sarah] were fourth cousins." Joseph Richard Culpepper, the oldest son of Rev. Lewis P. Culpepper and his first wife, Sarah, wrote circa 1910-1915 to a cousin, Rev. George B. Culpepper, saying that he "wrote to Father [Lewis Peek Culpepper] asking him to give me all the information he could relative to his father, grandfather, etc.... He [Lewis Peek Culpepper] says there were three brothers, John, Ben and Joseph. John was my great grandfather as was Joseph, also, on my mother's side...." If this information is correct and Lewis Peek's grandfather, John, was the brother of Sarah Ann Culpepper's grandfather, Joseph, then Lewis and Sarah were in fact second cousins.
      A granddaughter, Lena Amsler, wrote in a 17 Sep 1978 letter of Sarah Ann Culpepper's death: I heard my mother [Martha Jane Culpepper] comment that she [Sarah Ann Culpepper] must have died of appendicitis. She [Martha] said they called what she [Sarah] had cramp colic.

Biography* Census: 1880, in Clay Co, AL. [Beat 10 ED 38-15 Margaret 47 GA NC NC in hh of Louis Culpepper]
      Lewis Peek Culpepper recorded his second wife's name and date of birth in his Bible: "Margret B. Born June 24, 1833." Her name and date of birth and death were recorded on p. 153 of A Survey of Cemeteries in Chambers County, Alabama from her tombstone in the State Line Congregational Christian Church Cemetery (Township 24 N, Range 28 E) as: "Margarette R. Culpepper June 14, 1833/Jan. 29 1896." Presumably this information also came from Lewis P. Culpepper. A granddaughter, Mrs. J. H. (Margaret Phillips) Dodd wrote in a 12 April 1979 letter: From what I remember being told by my mother, grandmother's name was Margaret Joyce and aunt Maggie [Mrs. G. R. (Maggie Culpepper) Trimble] was Margaret Joyce for her mother and I became Margaret Joyce for aunt Maggie.
      Lewis P. Culpepper also recorded his second marriage in his Bible: "Lewis P. Culpepper... Married the Second time to Margrett R. Bateman Dec the 2nd 1858." Mrs. S. B. (Mary Exa Culpepper) Crossman wrote in a 24 Sep 1978 letter: Hattie [Culpepper Smith] did tell me that grandmother [Margaret Bateman Culpepper] was such a good housekeeper that every time they visited her, she (Hattie) was scared to death she would do something wrong.
      Mrs. J. H. (Margaret Phillips) Dodd wrote in a 21 Aug 1978 letter: Mother [Mrs. J. H. (Julia Culpepper) Phillips] said grandmother [Mrs. L. P. (Margarette Bateman) Culpepper] was a midwife. She [Margarette] told mother [Julia] that Aunt Polly [a sister of Margarette Bateman?] (that's all she [Julia] knew about Aunt Polly) taught her [Margarette] how to deliver babies and to gather herbs from the woods to make medicine. Mother remembers going with her [Margarette] to gather herbs.
      Mrs. Dodd continued in a 8 Oct 78 letter: I don't remember mother [Mrs. J. H. (Julia Culpepper) Phillips] talking about grandmother [Mrs. L. P. (Margarette Bateman) Culpepper] treating any of the children with herbal medicines, however I'm sure she did when they were sick. She [Julia] talked mostly about grandmother having her own horse and visiting sick people. She said that sometimes grandmother [Mrs. L. P. (Margarette Bateman) Culpepper] would spend several days with a person who was ill.
      Lewis Peek also recorded his wife's death: "Margarett R. Culpepper my Dear Wife departed this Life January the 29th 1896 Pece to thy afflicted Boddy age 62 years 7 months and 13 days." A Survey of Cemeteries in Chambers County, Alabama p. 153 lists the name from the tombstone in the State Line Congregational Christian Church Cemetery (Township 24 N, Range 28 E) as "Margrette R. Culpepper." Lena Amsler wrote in a 17 Sep 1978 letter: She [Lena's mother, Martha Culpepper] seems to have been fond of her stepmother [Margaret Bateman Culpepper]. I was only a kid but I was impressed when a black bordered letter came announcing her death and seeing my mother cry about it.

Joseph Richard Culpepper was recorded living with his parents in the 1850 census of Pike Co., GA and in the 1860 census of Randolph Co., AL where he was to marry Sarah Dean in 1861. When the Civil War began, the newly married Joseph Richard Culpepper joined the Confederate Army and served as a 2nd Corporal in Company H of the 31st Alabama Infantry. He was captured at Vicksburg, when that city fell to the Union Army on July 4, 1863. The Siege of Vicksburg and the time spent as a Prisoner of War had a profound effect on his health. His father, Lewis P. Culpepper, mentioned Joseph in an 1898 letter to Mrs. B. F. (Georgia Culpepper) Burke, a niece, in Texas: My oldest son Joe is 58 years old, never used tobacco..., and [his] nerves is completely ruined. But his helth was harmed in the [Civil] War, he Lookes nearly as old as I do [82 years old].
      After the war, Joseph Richard Culpepper was noted living in Tallapoosa Co., AL with his family in an 1866 Alabama State Census. Four years later he was noted with his wife, son and daughter, and sister, Silviah Ann Culpepper, in the 1870 census of the Loachapoka P.O. district of Lee Co., AL. His occupation was listed as "millwright," a profession which he apparently learned from his father. He was still in living in Lee Co., AL at the time of the 1880 census.
      Based on census information, all of Joseph's children were born in Alabama, but at some point Joseph and his family moved back to Georgia where they were living in Macon in the 1890's. Mrs. F. D. (Betty Lee Collins) Hale preserved several entries from the Macon City Directory. In 1890/91 Joseph R. Culpepper was listed as a "Carpenter, CRR" living at "390 Clinton E. M." His son, Charles, was listed as a laborer living at the same address. In the 1895/96 directory, Joseph R. Culpepper was listed as a carpenter living at 512 Clinton Road. His son, Joseph W. Culpepper, was listed as a Carpenter living at 530 Clinton Road. Finally, in the 1900 directory, Joseph R. Culpepper was listed as a "Carpenter, Con. St. Riv." living at 414 Clinton. There was a second listing for "J. R. Culpepper" as "foreman, Macon Con. St. Ry" living at "414 Clinton, E. M." Joseph R. Culpepper was noted in the 1900 census of Clinton, Macon, Bibb Co., GA. He was listed as a carpenter and was living with his son, Joseph W. E. Culpepper. By 1901 or so, Joseph was living in Americus, GA probably with or near his daughter, Mrs. G. H. (Tallulah Culpepper) Rittenberry. And he was noted in the 1910 census of Sumter Co., GA living with his son, Charles A. Culpepper. It was probably shortly before this that the wonderful picture of four generations of Culpeppers was taken showing Lewis P. Culpepper, Joseph R. Culpepper, Charles A. Culpepper, Sr., and Charles A. Culpepper, Jr. In Georgia, Joseph Richard Culpepper is said to have worked for the railroads painting ornate Victorian railroad cabooses. A niece, Mrs. J. H. (Margaret Phillips) Dodd, wrote in a 6 Sep 1979 letter: Uncle Joe was such a kind and loving person and his eyes and lips always seemed to be smiling.... I think it was aunt Maggie [Mrs. G. R. (Margaret Culpepper) Trimble] who told me that he often chartered a street car and took the children from the orphanage to the park on a Sunday P.M. for a picnic.
      Mrs. J. H. (Margaret Phillips) Dodd wrote in a 26 Jul 1978 letter: I remember twice when uncle Joe visited us on the farm. He was busy all the time writing letters, poems and acrostics. We went to aunt Mira's once to a family reunion and uncle Joe was there. He gave a talk using pictures to illustrate his points. He did his drawings on window shades and had a frame to hang them on. I was too young to remember the talk, but was much fascinated with the pictures. He had so many and I was so eager to see him hang the shade on the frame and unroll it.
      Mrs. Dodd continued in a 9 Oct 1978 letter: I don't think I mentioned to you that Uncle Joe was ambidextrous. He had arthritis very bad in his right hand so he started learning to write with his left hand. He wrote so well with his left hand, I never could tell the difference. I remember when I would see him writing with his left hand, I would try writing with my left hand and all I had was a big mess.
      Mrs. Charles (Margaret Whatley) Lee wrote 14 Mar 1979 that she had visited with Mrs. (Ola Mae Whatley) Todd who spoke of "Uncle Joe": She certainly did brag on Uncle Joe. She said he was such a good Sunday School teacher with children, said he used to have lots of pictures he would show and said they had never seen anything like that....
      Joseph's father and mother were both Culpeppers and so Joseph, or "Uncle Joe" as he was affectionately known (although, according to his half-brother, Thomas Jefferson Culpepper, he preferred to be called Joseph), became interested in the Culpepper family and ancestry. Before his father's death, Joseph tried to record any family history that his father remembered. In addition, as Joseph traveled visiting relatives, he tried to record information about the various descendants of his grandfather which would otherwise have been lost. Those notes served as the starting point for this current history of the family.
      Sometime before 1915, Joseph wrote his cousin, Rev. George B. Culpepper, about the family history passed to him by his father, Lewis P. Culpepper: Rev. George B. Culpepper Fort Valley, Georgia Dear Cousin, I wrote to Father asking him to give me all the information he could relative to his father, grandfather, etc. He knows nothing farther back than his grandfather who was John instead of Charles Marion [see Appendix A for one version of the purported history of the family that was circulating at the beginning of the century].... He says there were three brothers, John, Ben and Joseph. John was my great grandfather as was Joseph, also, on my mother's side. Ben died without heirs [no will has been found for Ben but the will of his wife, Joyce, although not specifying their exact relationship, appears to list her children and step-children Ben's presumed children]. John William [it is not clear whether Rev. Lewis Peek Culpepper had specified that his father's name was John William Culpepper or if Joseph used the William from the purported history as a way of clarifying references to his grandfather and great-grandfather] was my father's father and your father's grandfather. He married a Gillespie (instead of Laura May Jones as stated [in the version of the purported history that Joseph Richard was reviewing]...) and her mother was a Peek. In your grandfather's name, it is spelled Peeke [in the purported history], but Peek is correct for that is my father's middle name [actually spelling had not stabilized at the time and references can be found to Peek, Peeke, Peake, etc.] and I can remember it called Peek as far back as I can recollect anything. Grandfather moved from Virginia to Congaree, South Carolina and then to Edgefield [, SC] and from Edgefield to Monroe County, Georgia, and later to Meriwether County, Georgia, and to Randolph County, Alabama, where he died in 1855, when I was 15 years old [actually according to John Culpepper's 1850 census record, his place of birth was South Carolina and he was listed in the 1800 census in Lexington District, SC and in the 1810 census in Richland District, SC. Again it is not known if the reference to Virginia was a piece of telescoped family history or if Joseph Richard was attempting to reconcile the purported history with what his father had told him]. I went with my father on a visit to him [John Culpepper] when I was 12 years old... [The purported history] says he died in 1834 in Georgia six years before I was born. There were 10 children--8 boys and 2 girls [actually 11 since one baby boy died as an infant]. Frank, the oldest, went to Texas when I was quite small [1851]; died at ripe old age of 99 years, 9 months, 21 days. There were 285 of his family at his funeral out of 315. Quite a number of great great grandchildren. He had 18 children to start with. Uncle John [Jefferson Culpepper], I think, lived to be 86 [87 based on Bible record], your grandfather [Daniel Peek Culpepper] died at 31 [25 based on Bible record], as also Uncle Joel [44 at death] and Uncle Jeff [this must be James I. J. Culpepper who died at age 40 since John Jefferson's death was noted above] not far from that age. Uncle [George] Washington died in his 93rd year [correct]. Uncle William [Henry died in] his 96th year [95th actually]. Elizabeth Dean died at about 75 [71 actually]. My father [Rev. Lewis Peek Culpepper] was born in Edgefield, South Carolina and lived there until he was 7 years old. I remember hearing him state that before I was grown. My mother's father [Joseph Richard Culpepper] lived in Abbeville and the two families visited... what I have stated is absolutely correct as far back as my two great grandfathers. They [who? Is this an attempt to reconcile what he had learned from his father with the purported history?] claim there were two Lord Culpeppers and traced their lineage back to one of them. Anyway we are worthily descended, and you and I should endeavor to maintain the reputation of the family. With best wishes I remain your cousin. ___________________________Joseph Richard Culpepper
      Although his educational opportunities were limited, Joseph wrote with a fine artistic script, and loved to write colorful acrostics for his nieces and nephews, using their names as the subjects of the acrostics. Many have survived and are kept as keepsakes of "Uncle Joe." According to Mrs. Robert Joseph Culpepper, in a June 1977 letter, "in the First Methodist Church Pastor's Study is a framed copy of the first Board of Stewards which he [Joseph Richard Culpepper] did with his famous scroll work, beautiful." The following is a poem was written by Joseph Richard Culpepper: Divided I know the dream is over I know you cannot be In all the time to come the same That you have been to me. The color still is in the cheek The lustre in the eye, But ah! eve two have parted hands - Good-bye Not that I love you less For oh! my heart is sore Not that the lips that breathed your waived(? can't read), Are less fond than of you, But the unrelenting feet of time Have traveled on so fast! And soul from soul has grown away At last I think I just stood still For I had found my all But your rich life swept ever on Beyond my weak recall! And even although the voice rings sweet And clear the dear eyes shine I know no part of all thy wealth Is mine. What bridge can sad love build Across this gulf of change, Who needs must work with broken heart And fancies new and strange, Alas, it is too late The light fades down the sky, The hand slips slowly each from each Good-bye.
      Joseph Richard Culpepper's obituary appeared in the Times Recorder, Americus, GA, December 16, 1920: Children Lay Autumn Leaves On Bier of Man Who Loved Them An old man who loved children more than anything else in this world, died in Americus yesterday. Today the children he loved so well were present at his funeral at his invitation, conveyed through a friend to whom he entrusted it a few days before his death, and upon his bier they placed simple autumn leaves, just as he wished it--autumn leaves symbolic of the well rounded out and beautiful life that had yielded at last to the chills of the nightfall of life. That old man was Joseph R. Culpepper; the children were members of the public schools of the city, nearly all of whom knew him well. His death occurred at the home of his son, Charles A. Culpepper, on South Lee street, at 8:15 o'clock last night, ending an illness of three months, during most of which time he had been confined constantly to the house. He had been feeble for a considerably longer period, however. He was 80 years of age. I have asked you to come so that I might talk over with you some arrangements for my funeral, for I will not live but a short time, he told Mr. Furlow in substance. I want the superintendents of the various Sunday schools to be my pallbearers, and I want the children of the Sunday schools, whom I have loved so much and for whom I have worked so long, to attend my funeral and to pass by my coffin, and, in their own simple way, remember the old man to whom they meant so much. I do not want any flowers, but I would like them to lay autumn leaves on my casket as they pass by. If I could but know and realize it as I lay there with upturned lifeless face and as they were trudging by and looking down at me, I would be so happy. Mr. Furlow futilely tried to turn the subject, but promised his wishes would be carried out. After his message had been completed, the aged man calmly took up the discussion of business matters with members of his family, preparing for the end he knew was approaching. This morning Superintendent Mathis announced in a brief talk to each of the grades in the public schools the story Mr. Furlow had told him and the children touched by the devotion of their friend, flocked to the funeral this afternoon, in charge of Mrs. Annie Poole Walker, one of the teachers. At the church they found beautiful red-tinted oak leaves, freshly brought from the forest by Mr. Furlow, and at the proper time they filed silently and reverently past the coffin and, laying them, one by one over its top, fulfilled the wish strongest in Mr. Culpepper's heart as life departed. Mr. Culpepper had been a resident in Americus for 19 years.... His wife, who before her marriage was Miss Sarah Dean..., died 27 years ago, and the body will be taken Friday to Macon where it will be interred beside her in Rose Hill Cemetery.... Mr. Culpepper had been active all of his life in church work, being especially interested during many years in Sunday school work. He gave hand-illustrated talks to Sunday school children in all this section of Georgia, his activities in this department being interdenominational. He was especially beloved among the children of the Americus Sunday schools.... The funeral exercises were largely attended by Americus friends of Mr. Culpepper, many coming from surrounding towns where he was so well known and beloved.

Biography*  Lewis P. Culpepper recorded his daughter's birth in his Bible: "Sylviah Ann Culpepper was born May the 18th 1842." Presumably she was named after her grandmother, Silvia Geiger. In the 1850 census, her name is given as "Silviah." But in the 1860 census her name was recorded as "Silvira A." In the 1900 census, she was listed as "Ann Culpepper" (May 1842 GA) and was living in the household of her brother-in-law, Sam Amler, in McLennan Co., TX. Her niece, Lena Amsler, wrote in a 29 Jun 1978 letter: Our Aunt Ann came to live with us when I was about six years old and took over the kitchen and cooking.... I can't remember that Auntie's name was Silvia - I never saw the name spelled but I heard it as Silvira - She always signed her name S. A. Culpepper - Looking back on her life, it must have been very dull & drab - I think she had no interest in anything but her church work - She was the permanent treasurer of the Women's Society. Everybody called her Miss Ann....
      Lena Amsler added in a 17 Sep 1978 letter that "Aunt Ann sang Alto in the Methodist church...." The death certificate (McGregor, McLennan Co, TX 43594 Registrar's No. 34) lists her name as "Sylvira Ann." She was listed as having been a housekeeper for 70 years. She continued to work until she was 86 years old. Dr. J. B. Brown listed the cause of death as "old age." Sylviah was 90 years 5 months and 3 days old when she died at the home of her sister, Mattie Amsler, in McGregor, TX. The name on the death certificate was "Sylvira Ann." She never married.
