Married Name1860  As of 1860, her married name was Holloway. 
Marriage*18 September 1872 She married Daniel F. Culpepper at Lavaca Co., Texas, on 18 September 1872 at age 33.1 
Married Name18 September 1872  As of 18 September 1872, her married name was Culpepper. 
(Wife) 1880 Census1 June 1880 Zilpha was listed as Daniel F. Culpepper's wife on the 1880 Census at Lavaca Co., Texas.2 
(Wife) 1900 Census1 June 1900 Zilpha was listed as Daniel F. Culpepper's wife on the 1900 Census at Old Sweet Home, Lavaca Co., Texas.3 
Death*21 May 1904 She died at Hondo, Medina Co., Texas, on 21 May 1904 at age 65. 
Burial*circa 23 May 1904 Her body was interred circa 23 May 1904 at Ingleside Cemetery, Hondo, Medina Co., Texas
Biography* Mrs. James L. (Vivian Hastings) Culpepper wrote 24 Sep 1978 that D. F. Culpepper's second wife was "Mrs. Zilpha Reeder (Holloway) a widow...." The marriage record lists her as Mrs. Zilpha L. Holloway. In the 1900 census, she was listed as having had seven children three of whom were still living. The seventh child was apparently her son, Joseph Holloway, who was listed in the 1880 census. This is believed to be the "J. W. Holloway" who was listed as executor of Daniel F. Culpepper's estate in 1901 and, if this is correct, Zilpha would have had four children living in 1900. Mrs. James L. (Vivian Hastings) Culpepper reported in 24 Sep 1978 letter that there is a tombstone in the Mt. Olive Cemetery for "Maggie Culpepper 1875-1878." Mrs. Travis (Jacqueline Lorenz) McClinton recorded the dates as "1875-1875." It has been suggested that this was a child of Daniel and Zilpha. If so, in the 1900 census, Zilpha was not counting her son by her first marriage and the seven children born of whom three were still living would have been correct. In a 2 Nov 1994 letter Mrs. C. M. (Pat Burgin) Lee wrote: According to Marie [Burgin, a granddaughter of Daniel and Zilpha] there was also a girl, Maggie Culpepper. I'm guessing the 1875-1878 shown in cemetery records is the child. Other members of that family evidently are buried near.

Biography*  The "BIBLE FAMILY RECORD OF FRANCIS G. & EGLINTINE CULPEPPER" recorded J. T. J. Culpepper's birth (the day of birth was difficult to read and might be 1st): _________________________John T. J. Culpepper _________________________was Born Aug 9th 1827 However there is a notation after the record of J. T. J. Culpepper's death which reads "He was born June." In the 1900 census, he was listed as having been born Aug 1827. His tombstone in Mt. Olive Cem. lists his birth as August 8th, 1827.
      On p. 60 of On The Headwaters of the Lavaca and the Navidad Paul C. Boethel notes: John Thomas Jefferson Culpepper, born August 9, 1827 in Monroe County, Georgia, was the second son of Francis G. Culpepper and Eglantine Langley. The elder Culpepper with wife and thirteen children left Randolph [Chambers in 1840 census] County, Alabama, in 1846 and moved to Fayette [Lafayette in 1850 census] County, Mississippi, where they remained until 1851, when they moved on to Texas by way of Vicksburg and northern Louisiana. There were a slew of Culpeppers and many others in the party. John T. J. Culpepper and his older brother had come to Texas in 1849, and settled near the Sweet Home settlement. A second brother, William, born March 11, 1829, also settled in the area, and donated a tract of six acres for the Mt. Olive School and the Primitive Baptist Church. John T. J. Culpepper in 1877 led the county in two livestock classifications: (a) the largest number of horses, 86; and (b) the largest number of sheep, 2500.
      In the 1860 Hallettsville, Lavaca Co., AL census, "John Culpeper" was listed with his wife and young family. He was listed as having real estate valued at $1,500 and personal property valued at $5,000. Mrs. Travis (Jacqueline Lorenz) McClinton noted on the Shadrack Guthrie descendant list that John Thomas Jefferson was "1st sgt. Frederick J. Melone's Company Conf. Army 6 Aug 1861 for 12 months." On p. 54 of On The Headwaters of the Lavaca and the Navidad Paul C. Boethel includes: Muster roll of [Captain] Frederick J. Malone's Company, organized at Sweet Home, August 6, 1861. Enlistment for state service for twelve months. Note on roll: "No arms of an improved style."
      Included on the roster were: __________J. T. J. Culpepper, 1st sergeant __________D. F. Culpepper, private __________J. L. Culpepper, private __________W. R. Culpepper, private
      On p. 55 of On The Headwaters of the Lavaca and the Navidad Paul C. Boethel noted As military units for service in the Confederate army were recruited, the personnel of Searcy's and Malone's companies were sorely depleted and eventually the units were disbanded to be superseded by other state service units.
      Mrs. C. V. (Lois Anderson) Culpepper wrote 1 Jul 1978: John T. Jeff Culpepper - son of F. G. C. Served with the Terry Rangers - 2nd Sgt Co. D. 2nd Texas Cavalry
      The following is from pp. 145-154 of Col. Amasa Turner the Gentleman from Lavaca written by Judge Paul C. Boethel and published in 1963: TERRY'S TEXAS RANGERS Of the one thousand one hundred seventy men in the regiment, all but six were Texans; forty-seven were from Lavaca County.... Probably no other regiment on either side in the war had as many engagements with the enemy as the 8th Texas Cavalry, for it was constantly employed in scouting assignments, raids, charges, and in covering retreats. All told, it participated in thirty-eight general engagements, one hundred sixty skirmishes as a regiment, and three hundred seventy skirmishes as parts of a command, battalion, companies and squads. It was out of service but twenty-one days. The total killed, or died of exposure, disease and wounds, seven hundred thirty-six; total wounded in battle, eight hundred sixty. It served as an independent command, attached to brigades and armies; being essentially a cavalry unit, it operated over a considerable area, seeing service principally in Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, and North Carolina. It had no appreciable effect on the war, its numbers were too small for that, but it was a factor in two major battles: at Shiloh, where it checked the pursuit of the enemy, and at Bentonville, North Carolina, where it repulsed an attack, which, had it succeeded, would have been a disaster to the Confederate Army. The day preceding the surrender of the army at Jonesboro, April 28, 1865, two hundred forty-eight men answered the roll call for duty.... The roster of the Rangers from Lavaca County was as follows: 1. Sgt. J. T. J. Culpepper 2. Corp. A. G. Ledbetter 3. Corp. B. E. Joiner 4. Corp. L. Watson 5. J. H. Andrews 6. P. H. Arnold 7. T. J.

Middlebrook 29. James McKinney 30. D. A. McGonagil 31. S. B. Noble 32. D. C. Payne 33. S. C. Patton 34. A. Ponton 35. R. H. Ray 36. N. C. Reeves 37. W. B. Reeves 38. W. B. Simons 39. W. (Bill) B. Simpson 40. A. G. Seals 41. Hy. Thigpen 42. S. G. Thigpen 43. George Q. Turner 44. B. R. Watson 45. W. T. Ware 46. James Woodley 47. Wm. Wroe Of the Rangers... the remainder, or thirty-six men, were members of Company F, under Captain Louis M. Strobel, and were recruited at La Grange. With the exception of Dunneway, who was a recruit added later, the Rangers from Lavaca County were mustered into service in September, 1861, to serve for the duration of the war. The recruits from Lavaca County came principally from two settlements, Sweet Home and Prairie Point. Sweet Home was a settlement on Mustang Creek in the Midwestern part of the county about eight miles southwest of the town of Hallettsville, and was founded by the Yorks, Wests, McCutcheons, Allens, Bennetts, and Ledbetters, prominent stock raisers and freighters. The settlement was augmented in the early '50s by a colony from Georgia led by F. G. Culpepper and Dr. A. G. Patton. James McKinney, son of John McKinney, sheriff, 1852-56, was a horse-wrangler of note, and though he is listed as recruited from Karnes County, he worked as a "cow-hunter" for the stockmen of Sweet Home, until he joined the Texas Rangers at San Antonio. Culpepper, Patton, Ledbetter, McGonagill, Noble and Middlebrook were all from families settled there.... The Regiment mobilized at Houston. Company F, with its contingent of Lavaca County recruits, was the first to arrive. The regiment encamped about the city, where they, particularly Strobel's Company, "kept the town in a continued bustle with their daring feats of horsemanship...." Their armament also impressed the people, "every man has a six-shooter and bowie knife as well as a rifle or a double-barrel shotgun slung on the saddle...." Adventure, and in many instances death, was to be the lot of the recruits, and it began en route. At New Iberia, Louisiana, there was a gap of a hundred miles not spanned by a railroad. The men, not mounted, started on foot, marched for a day, then began to impress horses into service. It was every man for himself: pick any horse the could be found, rope and break him.... At New Orleans, they were sent by way to Nashville to Bowling Green, Kentucky, in box cars used to ship cattle. Here they joined the army General Albert Sidney Johnston was assembling for the defense of the frontier. While there and at Nashville, an epidemic of measles and diarrhea struck the regiment and took a heavy toll.... The first duty assigned to the regiment was to patrol and picket the area from Bowling Green north as far as Woodsonville on the Green River. While on reconnaissance near the river, December 17th, they encountered the enemy on its march toward Bowling Green. Here, the regiment made the first of its famous charges--"Nothing could exceed the brilliancy and daring of that impetuous charge, our shotguns threw up a blaze of fire and shot almost in their faces...." The unit continued its scouting, picketing, and patrolling in the area until February, 1862. After the fall of Fort Donelson, General Johnston abandoned Kentucky and established his base of operations in Tennessee. In this operation, the Rangers witnessed and covered the evacuation of Bowling Green, and soon thereafter were dispatched to Charlotte to cover the retreat of the infantry units escaping from Fort Donelson. Following this, the regiment, together with other cavalry units, was sent to Murfreesboro, Tennessee, to watch the movements of the enemy and intercept them if they moved southward.... In March, the cavalry units at Murfreesboro broke camp and joined the army at Corinth, Mississippi. On April 6th, the regiment participated in the Battle of Shiloh, one of the bloodiest engagements of the war. Twice it was dismounted to aid the infantry in holding the lines. On the 8th, they patrolled behind the army, acting as a rear guard on the retreat from Corinth. Late in the evening, the enemy's infantry pressed them so closely a stand was inevitable; it fell to the lot of the Rangers. In another impetuous charge, the enemy was driven back, their numbers falling like a "large covey of quail bunched on the ground, shot into with a load of birdshot." In this engagement, Company F mustered sixty-five men, and after three days of fighting, only fourteen men and the captain answered the roll. Aside from the casualties, the others were off on some duty, picketing and scouting where needed. Wounded were Culpepper, Letbetter, and Andrews.... Sergeant Culpepper, wounded at Shiloh, was wounded again in '63; this time in eastern Tennessee. In '65, he was still at it; it that year, he was captured but escaped and returned to duty....
      John T. Culpepper returned to Lavaca Co., TX after the war and was listed as a farmer in the 1870 census with his first wife, Cynthia, and young family. He was listed with real estate valued at $3,000 and personal property valued at $3,000. He was again listed with his first wife and younger children in the 1880 census of Lavaca Co., TX. Finally, in the 1900 census of Lavaca Co., TX, Thomas J. Culpepper was listed with his second wife and younger children. Mrs. R. M. (Anne Culpepper) Hunt wrote 27 Oct 1978: The pictures [of Lewis P. and George W. Culpepper] you sent remind me very much of my grandfather, Francis Gillespie Culpepper. I was 12 years old when I last saw him, in 1902 when we moved from Lavaca Co. Tx. My father, John Thomas Jefferson C. died Aug. 1st of that year, at the age of 75.... I remember my grandfather's looks, also my father and his brothers, they all had features much like the picture you sent of Geo. Washington Culpepper & Lewis Peek C. Grandpa was clean shaven, but his sons all wore beards. My father, J. T. J. was second son - he was a farmer & stockman, he sold out in Lavaca Co. in July of 1902 & bought land in Wilson Co. Tx. 35 or 40 miles south of San Antonio Tx. was sick when he returned to our home in Lavaca & never recovered, died Aug. 1st & was buried at old Mt. Olive Cemetery....
      John's death was also recorded in the Francis G. Culpepper Family Bible: _________________________John T. J. Culpepper _________________________Departed this life _________________________August 1st 1902
      Mrs. Travis (Jacqueline Lorenz) McClinton recorded the following from his tombstone in Mt. Olive Cemetery, Lavaca Co., TX: _________________________J. T. J. Culpepper _________________________Aug 8, 1827 _________________________Aug 1, 1902
      Dr. Charles L. Culpepper, Sr. wrote 4 Jul 1978: My father John Thomas Jefferson Culpepper, second son of F. G. Culpepper, was married twice. His first wife had 13 children... , and my mother had eight children.

Employment* William's occupation: farmer. 
(free wh male 00-05) 1830 Census1 June 1830 William, John and Daniel was probably a free white male, age under 5, in Francis Gillespie Culpepper's houshold, on the 1830 Census at Talbot Co., Georgia. The enumerator recorded 3 Females 0-5 and no Male children. We believe this was an error and should have been recorded as 3 Males 0-5..1 
(free wh male 10-15) 1840 Census1 June 1840 William, John and Daniel was probably a free white male, age 10 and under 15, in Francis Gillespie Culpepper's household, on the 1840 Census on 1 June 1840 at Chambers Co., Alabama.2 
(Household member) 1850 Census1 June 1850 Eglintine, William, Martha, James, Shadrach, Benjamin, Nancy, Sarah, Cynthia, Amanda, Mary, Susan and Selena listed as a household member living with Francis Gillespie Culpepper on the 1850 Census on 1 June 1850 at Lafayette Co., Mississippi.3

Burial*circa 29 November 1906 His body was interred circa 29 November 1906 at Oak Grove Cemetery, Yoakum, Lavaca Co., Texas
Biography* A "BIBLE FAMILY RECORD OF FRANCIS G. & EGLINTINE CULPEPPER" recorded William's birth (again the day was difficult to read it appears to be a 10 with the 0 written over by a 1: _________________________William R. Culpepper _________________________Born March 11th 1829
     William Culpeper was listed in the 1860 census of Hallettsville, Lavaca Co., TX. His first wife, Vashti Harbour, is believed to have died before 1857 and there is no record of another marriage until 1861 so the 26 year old "Mary Culpeper" born in Georgia who was listed with William in the 1860 census has not been identified. William had real estate valued at $1,000 and personal property valued at $300.
     On p. 54 of On the Headwaters of the Lavaca and the Navidad Paul C. Boethel notes "W. R. Culpepper, private" on the: Muster roll of Frederick J. Malone's Company, organized at Sweet Home, August 6, 1861. Enlistment for state service for twelve months. Note on roll: "No arms of an improved style."
     William's older brother, J. T. J. Culpepper was listed as "1st sergeant" in the same unit. On p. 55, Judge Boethel notes: As military units for service in the Confederate army were recruited, the personnel of Searcy's and Malone's companies were sorely depleted and eventually the units were disbanded to be superceded by other state service units.
     Apparently William later served in Company B, Hardeman's TX Cavalry. On p. 60, Judge Boethel notes: William, born March 11, 1829, also settled in the area [near Sweet Home], and donated a tract of six acres for the Mt. Olive School and the Primitive Baptist Church.
     William Culpepper returned home after the war and was listed as a farmer in the 1870 census of Lavaca Co., TX with his second wife, Julia, and young family. They were living next door to William's father, Frank Culpepper. William had real estate valued at $500 and personal property valued as $1,500. He remained in Lavaco Co., TX at least until 1900 where he was noted with his second wife and younger children in 1880 and 1900 census records. Mrs. R. M. (Anne Culpepper) Hunt wrote 27 Oct 1978 that "Uncle William moved to Central Tx. about 1900...." Presumably the family moved to Bosque Co., TX where the widowed, Julia Culpepper, was noted (pct. 3 ED 7 sheet 9) with her daughter, Mattie, in 1910 census records.

FatherIsaiah Harbour (18 Apr 1800 - 20 Jun 1856)
MotherMary Jincy Miller (24 Feb 1807 - 19 Dec 1882)
Birth*circa 1839 Vashti was born at Georgia circa 1839.1

Death*circa 1856 She died at Lavaca Co., Texas, circa 1856.3 
Biography* According to p. 99 of The Harbours in America by Louis J. Williams, Vashti is believed to have died before 24 Nov 1856 since she was not mentioned in her father's estate settlement. Mrs. T. D. (Patty Bennett) McGinty speculated in a 25 Jul 1988 letter that she died in childbirth. Culpepper Heritage Association records list a child "Nancy E." born 5 Jul 1857 in Lavaca Co., TX but no source is given. The child was not noted in the 1860 census and no cemetery record has been found for the child. Culpepper Heritage Association records note: "probably died at birth with mother." If Vashti in fact died in childbirth in 1857 then why wasn't she mentioned in her father's estate settlement?

      The "BIBLE FAMILY RECORD OF FRANCIS G. & EGLINTINE CULPEPPER" listed Martha's birth: _________________________Martha A. E. Culpepper _________________________was Born Feb 29 - 1832
      Martha's parents were noted in the 1830 census records of Talbot, Co., GA and this is where she is presumed to have been born. However, according to an article about Francis Gillespie Culpepper, in the 2 Feb 1898 Shiner Gazette he moved family to Albama in 1834 and this is where Martha would have spent her childhood. Again according to the Shiner Gazette article, Francis G. Culpepper moved his family to Lafayette Co., MS in 1846. Martha is noted in the 1850 census of Lafayette Co., MS living with her parents. Martha accompanied the Francis G. Culpepper family to Lavaca Co., TX and it is there that she married her first husband, William D. Guthrie in 1853. Martha was noted living with William Guthrie in 1860 Lavaca Co., TX census records.
      After the death of her first husband, Martha married again. Martha's second marriage was recorded in the S. M.

      Martha Annie Elizabeth was noted with her second husband, Marion Guthrie, and children in 1870, 1880 and 1900 Lavaca Co., TX census records. Some time after the 1900 census, Martha and her husband apparently moved to Baylor Co., TX and they were noted living there in 1910 census records. Martha and S. M. Guthrie were listed as having been married 48 years and Martha was listed as having had seven children, all of whom were still living in 1910. Only six have been accounted for.

Martha Ann followed them in her retiring years and is buried in Beaver Creek Cemetery near the farm that William F. worked.

FatherShadrach Guthrie (1772 - a 1850)
MotherMalinda Badley (c 1776 - )
Birth*28 October 1804 Orin was born at Kentucky on 28 October 1804. 
Employment* Orin's occupation: Baptist minister. 
Marriage*23 January 1829 He married Eliza Jane Davis at Hardeman Co., Tennessee, on 23 January 1829 at age 24. 
Death*9 October 1854 He died at Lavaca Co., Texas, on 9 October 1854 at age 49. 
Burial* His body was interred at Mount Olive Cemetery, Lavaca Co., Texas.1 
Biography* Keith Guthrie wrote Feb 1991: Orin left a number of tracks in Kentucky and Tennessee. He was evidently born around 1804 in Kentucky. He was a land owner and evidently a rancher. On January 20, 1824 he took out a license to marry Nancy Boyd in Hardeman County, Tennessee. No further record exists of Nancy and it is thought that she might have died in childbirth. On January 23, 1829 Orin married Eliza Davis, the daughter of Daniel Davis (the Davis clan goes way back into American Revolution days) who was a land owner, rancher and raised blooded horses.... Somewhere along the line Orin became a practicing Primitive Baptist preacher. The only thing that we have been able to find about him from the time he got married until arriving in Texas in the mid to late 1840's was an entry in a Primitive Baptist church register. No date but by deductions it appears to be in the early 1840's. Family legends tell that when the Guthries, accompanied by several other families who they may have been traveling with for years, that Eliza rode a horse with one of the children on her lap all the way. Orin is listed as the minister on several Guthrie marriage licenses in 1848. (Orin is thought to have had at least four brothers. William E. is well documented.) Orin bought land first from Daniel Davis (part that was the headright of John Davis) and others until we had a modest acreage....
      On p. 60 of On The Headwaters of the Lavaca and the Navidad Paul C. Boethel noted: Another Guthrie in the Sweet Home vivinity whose family history is mixed also with the Culpeppers was that of Orin Guthrie. Guthrie, a Primitive Baptist minister, and wife, Eliza Davis, were among the first colonists of DeWitt's settlement and it is said the wife rode horseback with a child in her lap most of the way from Kentucky. Their first house was on the Guadalupe, but the following the sacking of Gonzales in 1836, they settled on the Upper Lavaca. There they lived until the death of Guthrie. Besides a son, William D., four daughters survived him, all of whom married men prominent in the history of Sweet Home. Cynthia, who married John Thomas Jefferson Culpepper; Mary Ann, who married J. F. Culpepper; Jane, who married Westly F. Vick; Eliza Ann, who married William Vick. The widow Guthrie married John McKinney, the high sheriff of Lavaca County, in 1854.
      Mrs. James L. (Vivian Hastings) Culpepper wrote in a 13 Apr 1978 letter: William Guthrie (born 1831) was the son of the Primitive Baptist pastor, Oren Guthrie and wife Eliza who came from Kentucky to DeWitt settlement, with some of the early colonists up near Gonzales on the Guadalupe River. Preacher Guthrie died in 1854, soon after he was chosen pastor of the Mt. Olive Church and is buried in the cemetery there.
      Vivian recorded the following tombstone in the Mt. Olive Cemetery, Lavaca Co., TX: (Rev.) Oren Guthrie 28 Oct. 1804 9 Oct. 1854
      The following record is from p. 52 of Lavaca Co., TX - Cemetery Records Vol. I by Sammy Tise: GUTHRIE, Rev. Orin_____28_Oct 1834 [corrected to 1804 in Vol. II]_____9 Oct 1854.

Biography* The "BIBLE FAMILY RECORD OF FRANCIS G. & EGLINTINE CULPEPPER" listed James L. Culpepper's birth: _________________________James L. Culpepper _________________________was Born July 28 - 1833
     James L. Culpepper's son was listed as "James Levin Culpepper" on a delayed birth certificate for a daughter, Cecil Hae Culpepper, and was recorded as "J. L. Culpepper, Jr." in 1906 deed but James, Sr. was not believed to have been named "Levin." It was common for Jr. and Sr. to be used if the initials were the same even if the names were not otherwise identical. Mrs. James Lloyd (Vivian Hastings) Culpepper wrote 24 Sep 1978 that her husband believed his grandfather's name was "James Louis." In a 27 Jun 1978 letter Vivian wrote "some say James Louis, some say Lowell, also Leven." In a 28 Aug 1978 letter Mrs. James L. Culpepper wrote: C[harles] E. C[ulpepper] on application of Delayed Birth Certificate swears that his father was James Louis Culpepper....
     James named his first son, Thomas Louis so it makes sense that he would give his son, James, a different middle name. James' father, Francis G. Culpepper was noted with his family in the 1830 census of Talbot, Co., GA and this is probably where James L. Culpepper was born. According to the 2 Feb 1898 Shiner Gazette Francis G. Culpepper moved the family to Alabama in 1834 and this is where James was noted as one of two males 5-10 years old in the household of Francis Culpepper in the 1840 census of Chambers Co., AL. The 2 Feb 1898 Shiner Gazette noted that Francis G. Culpepper moved his family to Mississippi in 1846 and this is where a 16 year old "J. L. Culpepper" emerges in the F. G. Culpepper household in the 1850 census of Lafayette Co., MS. In 1851, Francis G. Culpepper moved his family to Lavaca Co., TX and this is where James L. Culpepper married his first wife, Eliza Jane Harbour, in 1856. Unfortunately, Eliza Jane died and James married her sister, Margaret Hall Harbour, in 1860. When the Civil War began, James L. Culpepper joined the Confederate Army.
     On p. 54 of On The Headwaters of the Lavaca and the Navidad Paul C. Boethel noted "J. L. Culpepper, private" on the: Muster roll of Frederick J. Malone's Company, organized at Sweet Home, August 6, 1861. Enlistment for state service for twelve months. Note on roll: "No arms of an improved style."
     James' older brother, J. T. J. Culpepper, was listed as "1st sergeant" on the same roster. On p. 55, Judge Boethel continues: As military units for service in the Confederate army were recruited, the personnel of Searcy's and Malone's companies were sorely depleted and eventually the units were disbanded to be superceded by other state service units.
     James L. Culpepper apparently went on to serve in Company B, Hardeman's TX Cavalry during the Civil War. After the war, James returned home and was noted as a farmer with his family in the 1870 census of Lavaca Co., TX living next door to his brother, William. James had real estate valued as $500 and personal property valued as $300. His son, James L. Culpepper, Jr. was not listed with the family and two children, a 2 year old "Elenor" born in Texas and a 1 year old "Egleintine" born in Texas were also listed in the household and have not yet been accounted for. Perhaps James L. Culpepper's daughter, Virginia Bell, was originally named after her grandmother. Perhaps Eleanor was a child (a twin of Harvey?) who died before the 1870 census. Or maybe the census taker needed some extra heads. James remained in Lavaca Co., TX through 1900 where he was noted with his wife and children in the 1880 and 1900 census.
     Mrs. R. M. (Anne Culpepper) Hunt wrote 27 Oct 1978 that "about 1900... Uncle James L. C - sold out in Lavaca Co. & bought land in Wilson Co. 1904 near Stockdale Tx. and lived there until his death, age 86 or 87 in about 1927 or 28 [James L. Culpepper would have been 87 in July of 1920] & was buried there, as was his wife who outlived him several years, died at age of 90. This couple had 15 children, all living at Uncle James' death...." The Texas Death Index lists (#24962) "Culpepper, J. L." Wilson Co., TX "8-29-22."

Birth*17 October 1834 Shadrach was born at Chambers Co., Alabama, on 17 October 1834. 
Employment* Shadrach's occupation: farmer. 
(free wh male 00-05) 1840 Census1 June 1840 Benjamin and Shadrach was probably a free white male, under 5 years old, in Francis Gillespie Culpepper's household, on the 1840 Census on 1 June 1840 at Chambers Co., Alabama.1 
(Household member) 1850 Census1 June 1850 Eglintine, William, Martha, James, Shadrach, Benjamin, Nancy, Sarah, Cynthia, Amanda, Mary, Susan and Selena listed as a household member living with Francis Gillespie Culpepper on the 1850 Census on 1 June 1850 at Lafayette Co., Mississippi.2 
(household member) 1860 Census1 June 1860 Eglintine, Sarah, Amanda, Mary, Susan, Selena, Georgia and Shadrach listed as a household member living with Francis Gillespie Culpepper in the 1860 Census at Lavaca Co., Texas.3

     Company B, Hardeman's TX Cavalry. 
(household member) 1870 Census1 June 1870 Eglintine, Shadrach, Amanda, Georgia, Daniel, Martha and Mary listed as a household member living with Francis Gillespie Culpepper on the 1870 Census at Lavaca Co., Texas.4

Death*14 July 1898 He died at Texas on 14 July 1898 at age 63. 
Biography* The "BIBLE FAMILY RECORD OF FRANCIS G. & EGLINTINE CULPEPPER" listed Shadrack's birth: _________________________Shadrack D. Culpepper _________________________was Born Oct 17th 1834
      A granddaughter, Mrs. George (Ruby Culpepper) Massey, wrote 8 Jan 1979 "I feel sure the Daniel was the D. in Shadrack." There is a question about Shadrack's place of birth. His parents were recorded in Talbot Co., GA in the 1830 census and in Chambers Co., AL in the 1840 census so presumably Shadrack was born in Georgia or Alabama. According to the 2 Feb 1898 Shiner Gazette Shadrack's father, Francis G. Culpepper, moved his family to Alabama in 1834 but it is not known if it was before or after the birth of Shadrack D. Culpepper. In the 1850 census presumably based on information supplied by his parents, Shadrack was listed as having been born in South Carolina. In the 1860 census, in his parents household, Shadrack was listed as having been born in Alabama and in the 1870 census, still with his parents, he was listed as having been born in Georgia. In any event, Shadrack would have spent his childhood in Alabama. According to the 2 1898 Shiner Gazette the Francis G. Culpepper family moved to Mississippi in 1846 and this is where Shadrack was noted living with his parents in the 1850 census. Shadrack would then have moved with his parents to Lavaca Co., TX in 1851 and this is where Shadrack was noted with his parents in the 1860 Hallettsville, Lavaca Co., TX census.
      When the Civil War began, Shadrack joined the Confederate Army. He served in Company B, Hardeman's TX Cavalry. After the war, he returned home and "Shadrick D. Culpepper" was noted as a farmer in the household of his father, Frank Culpepper in the 1870 census of Lavaca Co., TX. Some time after this census, Shadrack married and is next noted in the 1880 census of Lavaca Co., TX with his wife and young son, living next door to his father, Frank Culpepper.
      Shadrack's death was also recorded in the F. G. Culpepper Bible (the last digit of the year was difficult to read): _________________________6th Son of F. G. Culpepper _________________________(Shad D. Culpepper) _________________________Departed this _________________________life July 14 1898.

Birth*17 September 1839 Sarah was born at Chambers Co., Alabama, on 17 September 1839. Sarah seems to have been listed in the 1840 census, so one wonders about the 1840 birth date listed on her tombstone. Her birth is also listed as 1839 in the Francis G. Culpepper Bible record. But it is not clear if this Bible record was recorded at the time of the events, or long afterwards. The latter was perhaps the case. 
(free wh female 00-05) 1840 Census1 June 1840 Sarah, Nancy and Martha was probably a free white female, under five years old, in Francis Gillespie Culpepper's household, on the 1840 Census on 1 June 1840 at Chambers Co., Alabama.1

Biography* Census: 1880 Lampasas Co., TX. \ED 89-9 (S. M. 39 AL in hh of J. B. Mauldin).\
      The "BIBLE FAMILY RECORD OF FRANCIS G. & EGLINTINE CULPEPPER" listed Sarah's birth: _________________________Sarah M. Culpepper _________________________was Born Sept 1st 1839
      Presumably Sarah was born in Chambers Co., AL where her father was recorded in the 1840 census. Sarah was noted as one of two females 0-5 years of age in her father's household. According to the 2 Feb 1898 Shiner Gazette Francis G. Culpepper moved his family to Lafayette Co., MS and this is where Sarah was noted with her parents in the 1850 Lafayette Co., MS. In 1851, Sarah would have moved with her parents to Lavaca Co. TX and she was noted with her parents in the 1860 Hallettsville, Lavaca Co., TX census presumably the census district which included Sweet Home. In 1861, Sarah married J. B. Mauldin and according to an article "A Little History, The Great Pecan A Fortune in a Nut Shell A New Line of Life Insurance" written by a son, William Franklin Mauldin, written in 1940, Sarah and J. B. Mauldin settled in a 320 acre ranch on Bear Creek, Williamson Co., TX where the family remained until 1878 when J. B. Mauldin bought 1476 acres in Lampasas Co., TX. This is where Sarah was noted with her husband in the 1880 census.
      Mrs. George (Ruby Culpepper) Massey wrote 8 Jan 1979 about her search of Davis Morris Funeral Home records which showed that Sarah Matilda (Culpepper) Mauldin died in Guadalupe Co., TX: These records are typed as the appear on the old records. I looked on the map and I could not find Guadalupe Texas. It may be county and the town was La Vernia for the undertaker was from this town.
     From Colleen Andrews Morris, 3 Jun 2004: My Dad wrote "J. T. Mauldin was the third son of John Bryant Mauldin and Matilda Culpepper Mauldin. Shortly after the turn of the century, health of his father began to fail. He (J. T.) sold his Childress ranch and moved the family and parents to Sutherland Springs health resort.. When his parents died, J. T. and wife moved to San Antonio."

Sutherland Springs and La Vernia are both in Wilson County which borders Guadalupe County. My Grandmother Iris Mauldin met and married her husband John Franklin Andrews in Floresville, Wilson County.

Mrs. Harvey W. (Glenna Harris) Mauldin preserved the following which was written by William Franklin Mauldin, 15 Jan 1940:

A Little History, The Great Pecan
A Fortune in a Nut Shell
A New Line of Life Insurance

Back in 1865, My Father John B. Mauldin & My Grand Father Dr. W. P. Mauldin known among his friends as Dr. Billy. In 1868 my Father improved a little three hundred & twenty acre ranch on Bear Creek Williamson County Texas consisting of an upland farm where the houses were & 40 acres farm in the valley on Bear Creek. In clearing this valley land they found in the center of the clearing a mammoth pecan tree which they left standing & which we observed never failed to yield a bountiful crop of nuts which we boys enjoyed very much. We would gather a large sack full each winter & leave a bountiful crop for the wild Turkies & hogs to feast upon for Months as the wind brought the nuts down few at a time for Nov. 1st & continued to fall till March & April the next year. [My father & grandfather?] lived on the frontier in Lampasas County Texas and were Indian scouts. I can remember hearing them talk of the big Pecan crop, saying the wild Turkeys & Hogs would be fine eating this winter as they would be very fat on the Pecans. & the Indians too would visit us often, most every light moon & kill our neighbors & drive away our stock. In those days the Indians used the Pecan most extensively for their food. The savage knew more of nature three hundred years ago that civilized nations know today, they used the Pecan as a food. More that Sixty percent of our people do not know that now. The crow & the squirrel have a fine time in the big Old Native Pecan trees that grew on the banks of the Colorado river but strange to say no man ever saw a crow west of the Colorado river. They would not cross. The Pecan tree grows along the banks of most every water course in Texas but strange to say, the largest trees were not on the bank of the streams, they were well back away from other trees where they could have room to spread. In 1878 my Father decided the little Ranch was too small. Being of a Pioneering Nature, he sold the little Ranch, bought 1476 acres of fine land in Lampasas County Thirty Miles from where we had fought the Indians a few years before. There was also plenty of open range here, and also plenty of Pecan trees on the River & we still gathered our usual supply of winter Pecans. By this time we had accumulated quite a little family, consisting of Eleven Boys & a sister for every brother. Now guess - we were all healthy. We ate lots of Pecan Nuts. As well as accumulating a large family we had also accumulated a nice herd of cattle, horses, sheep & hogs. We were stock farmers, had 150 acres in farm. We raised everything we consumed & consumed most all we raised. We raised wheat, corn, potatoes & great stacks of hay, had plenty of cows that we milked every day. We always had steers to sell but never sold any she cattle. Sold wool, Lambs & Mutton & always had horses for the horse buyer. In 1886 our herds had outgrown our range, so we decided to drive to Colorado territory and sell out. We gathered our herds with little hired help & on April 14th 1886 we put our herd on the trail routed through the pan handle of Texas to Colorado. My Father put me in charge as I was the oldest son. We were on the trail four & one half months encountering many, many hardships, but made a successful drive & a good sale & were back home safe in five months. On our way out, at Brownwood Texas, located on the west side of the Pecan Bayou or River. The Bayou or River was named for its great Number of Pecan trees. The town was located in 1848 by Uncle Jimmie Brown's trading post, later named "Brownwood." In the valley before crossing the Pecan Bayou was very thick Mesquite brush. We had a hard time getting our cattle through without a loss but we did it and went our way. Two years later, in 1888, I went through that same valley, with another herd of cattle, but where the mesquite brush was there were three hundred acres of young Pecan trees. In 1895 I saw A. L. Swindon sell his crop of nuts to J. R. Looney a Grocery Man for $6000.00. Those were the common seedling nut. That year I was converted to the Pecan industry and have never been "a backslider" or lost faith in the Queen of all trees, the Pecan. This man Swindon was the Son-in-law of J. I. Campbell one of the Lumber Kings of Texas. On my first trip through the Panhandle of Texas in 1886 I saw Pecan trees at Childress, near Amarillo that looked to be Seventy five years old & bearing heavy & not another tree in that country. But there are thousands of young trees in the Panhandle now. That altitude is about Thirty five hundred feet. I sold & transplanted my first Pecan trees at Brownwood Texas in 1895, those were seedling trees for shade. In 1898 I sold the first budded trees, propagated by Dr. W. R. Stuart Ocean Springs Mississippi. In 1902 I sold the first budded Pecan trees planted in San Angelo Texas. People said they would not grow away from the River bank. But I sold many trees & planted in yards & parks in San Angelo & today 85 % of the shade trees planted in San Angelo are Pecan trees. The streets are lined with beautiful tax paying Pecan trees. A Christmas Card 1940 from San Angelo Texas from a niece in part says, "Dearest Uncle Frank, would so love to see you. How are you? Wish you could see the Pecan Nuts we gathered from our trees this year. Texas yards certainly made a good crop." San Angelo Texas is recognized today as the largest inland Pecan shipping center in the World. In 1919 the state of Texas had 85 % of the seedling Pecan trees in the world. In 1917 I sold the first Pecan trees ever put in the El Paso Valley. I put El Paso on the map in the Pecan industry. I sold Dean Stockman's [sic, Stahmann's] Father Pecan trees in 1918 & his Son Dean is at Mesquite New Mexico now planting 4000 acres to Pecan trees - so you see how the industry grows. The largest Pecan tree in the world is in the El Paso valley Twenty miles below El Paso. One mile away from the Rio Grande River, this tree measures over eighteen feet around the trunk, is 108 feet spread looks to be one hundred feet high & is supposed to be one thousand to fifteen hundred years old. A Pecan tree never dies from age. Old timers there say this tree never fails to bear a good crop of nuts & is believed to bear fifteen hundred to two thousand pounds of Nuts in one year. It's on Mexican property & everyone gathers its nuts. This tree is growing in bad alkali ground, a water table of Ten feet. There is only one other Old Pecan tree in the El Paso Valley, this tree stands just one mile from the big tree & is about Seventy years old growing in the Sanddunes where no well water could be found - in the last few years Irrigation water has been run near this tree & the owner has seven acres in alfalfa & he told me in 1919 tht he gathered 750 pounds of Nuts from that tree that fall & sold them at 35 cents per pound, Making far more money than the Seven acres of alfalfa. During four years I spent in the El Paso valley I planted many Pecan trees which are proving my statement, the Pecan tree is the greatest money making tree knnown to mankind. In Jan[?] 1922 I went [to] Imperial Valley & sold Pecan trees & that winter shipped Two car loads from Monticello Fla. Out of that shipment I planted Ten acres in Jan. 1923 for J. M. Johnson in San Fernando Valley - Converting a walnut man to a Pecan man, [to] which he will testify. Trees in that grove last year produced as much as 165 pounds of Nuts each. Those trees are the paper-shell "Schley," The Variety we will grow in Pecan Park Estate. Pecan Park Estate is where you can plant your money & see your dollars grow. If you are sick it will make you well. If you are well it will make you happy just owing to how much you invest as to how rich you will be. Pecan Park Estate has the climate, the water & as good land as there is in the state to grow Pecan trees & ideal climate in which to grow good trees & a bountiful crop of Nuts. We expect to plant hundreds of acres in Pecan trees on this tract as my years of Experience tells me there is no better location & few as good as you will find in Pecan Park Estate for a sure investment. One would be surprised to know that there are hundreds of giant seedling Pecan trees Seventy five to one hundred years old that never fail to bear a crop every year in the state of Calif. and the result of those old giant trees & the constant pounding of the far sighted Pecan Nursery Man California is fast coming into her own in the production of the choice paper shell nut. Back to New Mexico, for a little talk. In 1929 I was in Roswell talking Pecan. The Monticello Fla. Pecan Nursery Company had me on the air twice a week for two months selling Schley & Mahan Pecan trees while talking there an old man said have you ever seen my Pecan trees. I said no, where are they. He said Ten miles West of here just off the highway & told me how to find the place. He says my folks came here from Texas 65 years ago when I was five years old. My Mother brought a little bag of Pecans & started planting. My father laughed & said you'll never have any Pecans. Today there are eleven trees in a little group. If I had a hundred trees like them I would not have to work, old as I am. I went to see those trees. They were in a very small space only Seventy five feet across. The largest tree measured 11 1/2 feet around, looked to be Eighty feet high. Those trees were right out [in] the open pasture. No protection. A few years ago I was talking with G. R. Crane three miles East of Escondido near San Diego. He has a large Pecan tree growing near the Center of a 12 acre Orange grove. He asked, what insect bothers a Pecan tree? I said you say you have owned this grove Twelve years why don't you tell me? He said there has never been an insect on that tree & every insect in Calif. has been here to see me. He said that tree makes more money than Thirty of the best trees in the Orange grove, no pruning no spraying & a crop every year. Last year I weighed 750 pounds from that tree.

"I am a second generation Pecan Farmer in the El Paso Valley, but a fourth generation farmer in this valley (cotton). There are several things about this story that my 74 year old father couldn't make sense of: W.J. Stahmann and son "Dean Stahmann Sr." surely did plant tree's in Mesquite, New Mexico in the early 1930's. In 1918 W.J. Stahmann was a cotton farmer in Tornillo, Texas and sold his farm to a gentleman that owned the Hoover Cotton Company in 1926. Dean Stahmann Sr. continued his dream and planted 2900 acres at the Santo Tomas farm near Mesquite and 1100 acres on the Snow farm near Old Mesilla, New Mexico. Info on this is available at their web site (http://stahmanns.com). Also being very interested in pecans and the history of the pecan tree I would be very interested in trying to find the original locations of these old tree's sited in the story in El Paso, Tx., though they are probably non-existent anymore.'
