Biography* John James Culpepper was known as "Jack." His parents were recorded in the 1850 census of Chambers Co., AL and this is where John James is presumed to have been born. After this census, probably before 1855, the family moved to a farm near present day Wadley, AL and this is where John James was noted living with his parents in the 1860 and 1870 census records of Randolph Co., AL. After his marriage, John James remained in Randolph County until after 1880 since he was recorded there with his wife and young family in the 1880 census. According to a granddaughter, Mary Lillian Butler Pierce, in 1883, John James moved his family to the Sand Mountain area of Marshall Co., AL where "John J. Culpepper" was recorded (83:12) in Albertville with his wife and younger children in the 1900 census. He was listed as having been born Dec 1850 in Alabama. A 50 year old "John J. Culpepper" born in Alabama was recorded (96-22) with his wife and daughter in the 1910 census of Marshall Co., AL. His father, Robert J. Culpepper was also living with the family. John James Culpepper apparently remained in Marshall Co., AL the rest of his life since an article about a 1937 family reunion listed his residence as Albertville, AL and this is where he died.
      When Sallie Butler, a granddaughter, was 15 years old, she wrote the following article about John James and Nancy Jane (Willoughby) Culpepper's 64th wedding anniversary: Mr. and Mrs. J. J. Culpepper, known everywhere as "Uncle Jack and Aunt Nancy," will celebrate their 64th Anniversary December 8, 1935. Uncle Jack will also celebrate his 85th birthday December 4, and Aunt Nancy will be 86 on February 8, 1936. These old folks were happily married 64 years ago, on a cold December night about twelve o'clock. They danced until midnight and then ate supper and danced on. For their supper they had cilloububs, most everyone wonders what that is. [Webster's has "syllabub": 1. a drink or dessert made by curdling milk or cream with acid (as wine or cider) 2. a desert of sweetened milk or cream beaten to a froth and flavored with wine or liquor.] They made their home in Clay County [in Randolph Co., AL census records 1860 through 1880] until 1883, when they moved to Sand Mountain [th Albertville area of Marshall Co., AL] in covered wagons which brought them here after five days journey. They've been in this place for 52 years. They have three children, 19 grandchildren, and 14 great grandchildren. Uncle Jack has made a crop for 65 years. He had a small crop of two acres this year, he plowed, hoed, picked part of the crop.... When they came here they lived in a log cabin, which now stands as a barn. They lived in that for 16 years. They then made a better house and have been in it for forty-six years. So here's hoping we may be able to greet them on their birthdays and many more to come. Good wishes and health to you both throughout the remainder of your years. Your granddaughter, Sallie Butler.
      Mary Lillian Butler Pierce, another granddaughter, wrote that John James Culpepper had "a bout of typhoid fever" and that he "lost an eye at age 50 yrs. old. Dr. said he needed heart surgery and wouldn't live unless he had it. He lived 38 more yrs. without the surgery and died a natural death."
      In a 19 Jan 1979 letter, Mary Lillian wrote about the land: My Grandpa Jack bought this 80 or 100 acres of land, where I live, mostly in woods for then 2 small calves and a bale of cotton was 15 cents per lb. Later years, it went back to the Rail Road Co. and he had to pay for it again.... This house was built 1893, a 1 1/2 story, the house still stands, I live in it. Many changes have been made, and some improvements, could stand a few more now.
      In a 20 Jan 1979 letter, Mary Lillian added: A bale of cotton sold for $15.00, 2 calves were probably $1.00 each or $2.00 which made $17.00 for this property in 1880. Now one lot would sell for $5000.00, quite a difference, huh. Then I didn't tell you what Grandpa Jack did, besides farming. He and a neighbor built chimney's (fireplaces) I visited a friend yesterday p.m., had a roaling(?) wood fire, for heat, said my Grandpa built the chimney. That house is 110 years old.... As far as I know didn't any of the Culpeppers of my Mom's generation, ever strike it rich. All of them had a good living and owned a home and farm. My mom said this place was morgaged once for $25.00 about 1905, then she mortgaged it once to build a house on this property....
      Mary Lillian Butler Pierce wrote 23 Apr 1993: My Mom [Mrs. W. E. (Effen Culpepper) Butler] would save about 2 cups of whey & let it clabber [curdle] and my Grandfather would eat it with a spoon with his evening meal.... [is this more syllabub?] Next week if I can, it's decoration [day] at Mt. Vernon [cemetery where John James Culpepper and his wife and some of his children are buried], Sun. May 2nd....
      Mary Lillian preserved the following article from an unknown source about a 1936 John James Culpepper family reunion: CULPEPPER REUNION The Culpeppers held their annual reunion at the home of Uncle Jack Culpepper, Sunday, Sept. 6. The day was enjoyed by relatives and friends and talk of bygone days. At the regular noon hour a bountiful table was spread under the shade trees.

Biography* Sallie Butler, a granddaughter of John James and Nancy Jane (Willoughby) Culpepper, wrote in a 1935 article that "Aunt Nancy will be 86 on February 8, 1936." This would indicate that Nancy was born in 1850 which would correspond with the 1900 census record which indicates that Nancy was born in Alabama in Feb 1850. It is not known if this corresponds with the date from the tombstone.
      Sallie's sister, Mary Lillian Butler Pierce wrote 4 Oct 1992: I don't know anything about my grandmother's [Nancy Jane Willoughby Culpepper's] parents, don't even know their given names [they might be listed in the 1850 census of Chambers Co. or Randolph Co., AL since this is where the Culpepper's were]. Her mother died when she was 7 years old and left a little two-year-old sister, and my grandmother didn't get to go to school a day in her life, and took care of her little sister. I don't know for sure if Lovie was her little sister's name, or if Lovie was a nickname. Mama always said Aunt Lovie. I think Aunt Lovie married a Kerr. My grandmother had another brother Uncle Bud and he and his wife and daughters lived in Waco, TX. Another brother was Jacob. The thing I remember about my grandmother Nancy Jane she was kind, sweet, humble and clean as a pin and a marvelous cook....
      Nancy is presumed to have married John James Culpepper in Ranolph Co., AL where they are noted living in the 1880 census. According to a granddaughter, Mary Lillian Butler Pierce, in 1883, the John James Culpepper family moved to the Sand Mountain area of Marshall Co., AL where the family is noted living in the 1900 census of Albertville, Marshall Co., AL. In the 1900 census "L. A. Willowby" a 16 year old boarder was recorded in the John James Culpepper household. According to Mary Lillian Butler Pierce in a 5 Jan 1995 letter, this was probably Nancy's half-brother Leedy Willoughby. Mary Lillian added that her mother, Mrs. W. E. (Effen L. Culpepper) Butler, had spoken of her Uncle Leedy often and he gave her mother "a hugh trunk" which she considered very special. In the 1900 census, John James Culpepper listed his father as having been born in South Carolina and his mother as having been born in North Carolina. In 1935, for the 64th wedding anniversary of her grandparents, Sallie Butler wrote of Nancy Jane Willoughby Culpepper that "she started then [when Nancy's mother died] cooking, milking, churning and doing all the house work and raised a two year old girl." Sallie Butler also wrote that Nancy had been an invalid for 4 or 5 years.
      Mary Lillian Butler Pierce preserved the following from an unknown source about the 1935 family reunion which was held before Nancy's death: Culpepper Reunion Sunday, September 1 The Culpepper's held their annual Reunion on Sunday, Sept 1st at the home at Mr. and Mrs. J. J. Cullpeper [sic], known as Uncle Jack and Aunt Nancy. At the regular noon hour dinner was served out in the yard on a long table. Those enjoying this occasion were Mr. and Mrs. J. J. Cullpepper [sic], Mr. D. Cullpepper [sic] and daughter, of Albertville, Mr. and Mrs. Monroe Cullpepper [sic] and family, Mrs. and Mrs. Frank Culpepper and family, Mr. and Mrs. Barney Presley and family, Mr. and Mrs. Claud McBrayer and family, Mrs. Liddie Carr and girls, Mrs. Bertha White, Mrs. Lenora Willoughby, Nephew and friends, Mr. Richard Latimer all of Gadsden, Mr. and Mrs. Wilie [sic] McLeod and daughter, Peggy, Mrs. Freeman Miller and family, Mr. and Mrs. Lamar [Lamon] Jones and Mary Lillian Butler all of Boaz, Mr. and Mrs. C.

A host of friends and neighbors gathered there in the afternoon to greet Uncle Jack and Aunt Nancy on this happy occasion and soon they will celebrate their 64th anniversary. As everyone left they hoped to meet there again next year on the same day.

Burial*circa 8 May 1951 His body was interred circa 8 May 1951 at Forrest Cemetery, Gadsden, Etowah Co., Alabama
Biography* Francis Marion Culpepper was known as "Frank." He was born in Randolph Co., AL near what is now known as Wadley, AL. By 1880, Frank had moved with his parents to Clay Co., AL where the family was recorded in the 1880 census. He is presumed to have moved with his parents to the Sand Mountain area of Marshall Co., AL in 1883 and six years later, Frank married, possibly in Marshall Co. or Cullman Co., AL. However, before the 1897 birth of his youngest daughter, Frank had moved his family to Gadsden, Etowah Co., AL where he would spend the remainder of his life. He was recorded with his wife and children in Gadsden in the 1900 census and again the 1910 census a 40 year old "Frank M. Culpepper" born in Alabama was recorded (58-5) in Gadsden, Etowah Co., AL with his wife and younger children. Mary Lillian Butler Pierce wrote 4 Mar 1994: I do remember that he [Frank] worked at a stove foundry. As a matter of fact, my grandfather [Frank's brother, John James Culpepper] bought a wood stove from him....
      In an 18 Jan 1979 letter, Mary Lillian wrote: Great Grandpa Jeff [Robert Jefferson Culpepper] has a war emblem by his tomb shaped like a 3 or 4 leaf clover, made of iron or steel. He had a pocket watch with a chain & watch fob looked like the iron emblem at his grave. My grandfather [John James Culpepper] kept it, long as he lived.... Uncle Frank Culpepper got it soon as my Grandfather died. I don't know who got it when Uncle Frank died....
      The following column by Will I. Martin from an unknown source was preserved by Mary Lillian (Butler) Pierce: THE FIREMEN WHO WORE SILK TOP HATS, TAILS Gadsden once had a fire department, most of the members of which frequently attended and fought fires in full dress suits. That's right, Tails, top silk hats, bow ties, expansive shirt fronts and everything. There was never anything like it in any other city in the world, before or since. It all came about when the entire department, including Chief Gus Woodliff and Assistant Chief Frank Culpepper went on strike. The men quit when the city council decided to move the hose wagon from the Bellenger livery stable on Court Street to the Sullivan stable on South Fourth Street where the McCleskey brothers now hold forth. The council took the action without consulting the firemen and they believed that the Court Street stand was the best, because it was more centrally located and also because the alarm bell was hung in a tall steel tower just across the street in the courthouse yard. When the strike was announced the council hastily organized a new company comprised by kids fresh out of college and youthful members of the society set. They were mostly sons of large property owners and factory heads. A game but inexperienced lot. The strike lasted several months, during which the kids were kept busy answering alarms. Every time they had a full-dress dance at the Printup or elsewhere an alarm came in, usually due to a blaze in some outhouse or shanty. They rushed from the dance hall in their monkey suits and occasionally they returned to the dance, but most or the time they had serious job on their hands. The biggest fire during that period was the one that destroyed the Kyle sawmill on the river bank just off First Street. They did splendid work there by saving the planing mill and a huge quantity of lumber. The old firemen called them "dudes" but soon learned to respect them and occasionally, they helped in fighting a stubborn blaze. John S. Paden Jr. was chief of the so-called society crew and was later succeeded by Will P. Gwin. The council paid the boys one dollar a fire and it was a common remark that they would get rich on the numerous blazes that occurred in an old shop building at Locust and Sixth streets. Frank Culpepper who assistant chief when the firemen went on strike said the other day that the trouble was finally ironed out and that the experienced firemen, mostly working men, went back into service. He was a member when the first motor truck was bought and was a member of the city council when the second one was purchased. The two - horse hose truck was replaced and later Frank became chief. In 1912 he attended the national convention of Fire chiefs In Denver, Col. In 1913 he quit because the council wanted to do away with the chief's horse and buggy and mount him on a motorcycle. Mr. Culpepper served as alderman during the administrations of Mayors W. P. Johnson, W. E. Wier and O. J. Stocks. He was born in Randolph County and came here 50 years ago. One of his first acts was to join the fire department, a voluntary organization that never drew any pay. A blind horse named "Bill" pulled the hose wagon then. Mr. Culpepper worked in several shops as a mechanic and then went to the A. J. Stove Foundry to do odd jobs in all departments until he was appointed master mechanic. He served the company for 35 years and six months. He will be 78 years old Aug. 25 next. He is rated as a man of the highest character and is universally regarded as one of the substantial citizens of Gadsden.
      In 1940, in celebration of Frank's seventy-first birthday, a family reunion was held at his home on South Second Street, Gadsden, Etowah Co, AL. The following was preserved by Mary Lillian Butler Pierce and is from an unknown source: Reunion Honors F. M. Culpepper On His Birthday MR. AND MRS. F. M. CULPEPPER, entertained recently with a family reunion at their home on South Second Street, in celebration of the seventy-first birthday of Mr. Culpepper. At noon a delicious dinner was served to the following friends and relatives: Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Willoughby and sons J. W. Glenn and Byron, of Boaz, Route 4: Mrs. C. F. Nichols and child, of Bastrop, La. Mr. and Mrs. Thealon Seay, of Boaz, Mrs. D. F. McBrayer, of Attalla; Loren Gaines, of Sardis; Louis J.

Biography* John Jefferson Culpepper's mother died, if not as the result of his birth, then soon thereafter and he appears to have been raised by his grandparents, John Jefferson and Catherine (Bell) Culpepper. Since his father, William Washington Culpepper, appears to have married in Chambers Co., AL in 1853 and again in 1855, this is where John Jefferson Culpepper is presumed to have been born. As an infant, he apparently moved with his grandparents and their extended family to Randolph Co., AL where John J. Culpepper was noted in the 1860 and 1870 census living with his grandparents.
     Probably in order to avoid confusion with his grandfather, the marriage bond was issued for Jefferson J. Culpepper and William W. Culpepper for $200 and he signed it "J. J. Culpepper." The marriage license was also issued for Jefferson J. Culpepper and Sarah Carlisle on 21 Dec 1875. W. H. Culpepper, M.I. signed that he had married them on 23 Dec 1875. The bond and license were issued in Tallapoosa County, AL but a granddaughter, Aileen Culpepper, wrote 12 Jul 1979 that the wedding actually took place "near Wadley" which is in Randolph Co., AL. Since the couple was married by their great-granduncle, W. H. Culpepper, perhaps they were married at his home near Wadley.
     The couple apparently settled down in Randolph Co., AL and this is where they were noted in the 1880 census. But based on the birth locations of their children, John Jefferson Culpepper and his wife, apparently moved their family to Texas sometime after 1890 and before 1895. And John Jefferson Culpepper was noted with his family in the Jones Co., TX census in 1900. This is apparently where he remained the rest of his life.

      Robert Benjamin F. Culpepper was born near Louina on land that is south of what is now Wadley in Randolph Co., AL near the Chambers Co., AL border off of Route 22. He apparently remained there the rest of his life. John William Culpepper, great-great-great-grandson of John and Nancy (Gillespie) Culpepper, believes that this is the same land that John Culpepper owned when he died in 1855. Robert Benjamin was recorded in his father's household in 1870 and in 1880 and Robert emerged as a head of household in the 1900 census of Randolph Co., AL, apparently remaining behind, possibly caring for his grandfather, John Jefferson Culpepper, when his father moved to Marshall Co., AL. Robert B. Culpepper was also noted with his wife, children and his mother-in-law in the 1910 census of Randolph Co., AL.
      On 26 July 1979, Mary Lillian Butler Pierce wrote of Robert Benjamin F. Culpepper "Cousin Benny Culpepper would visit us in the summer. He had palsy, so they called it then, his head would shake and his hands, he could hardly eat." In a 29 Mar 1981 letter, Mrs. Pierce continued: Cousin Benny visited us in 1931 from Wadley, AL. He hands and head would shake so much, that food would all shake off his fork or spoon before he could get it in his mouth. And in those day's people poured a little coffee in the saucer and drank it from the saucer, time he would get the saucer to his mouth, the coffee would all be spilled on my mother's white table cloth. We all felt so sorry for him, and we would want to help him or feed him. He would only laugh at us, and insist on feeding himself.
      Mrs. Eleanor Culpepper Willingham wrote in a 28 Sep 1987 letter: We found a man whose wife [Mrs. M. A. (Inez Culpepper) Champion?] was related to the Benjamin descendants. There is a beautiful fairly new "more or less colonial" type house which was built on site of Benjamin's home place in Randolph Co. The original house burned but the original barns and other houses used for various reasons still stand. One was the smoke house. As well as I can remember he said g.g. grandfather John William lived in this neighborhood. He told us how to locate old Beulah Cemetery, which we found [see John William Culpepper below, is this off of Route 22 near the Chambers Co., AL border?]. In a lot there is a rather large marker which is at the head of 3 graves. The names on the marker are: R-Benjamin-1864-1946-Dora Virginia 1864-1948-Obera Rebecca-1895-1926. The marker Pink Marble. This Mr. Smith (I believe that was his name) [Champion?] said there is a cemetery down by the [Tallapoosa] river - which would be almost inaccessible. He had never heard that John Wm & Nancy were buried there but said it could be a possiblity.
      John William Culpepper wrote 18 Aug 1994: Her [Mrs. John (Edith Champion) Zuber's] grandfather, Robert Benjamin Culpepper is buried in a defunct church cemetery about a mile west of their home, just off Rt. 22 a short distance down a rock road, along with his wife Medora Virginia Bailey Culpepper and their daughter Obra Virginia. Ben was born in 1864, died in 1946, his wife was born in 1864 and died in 1948, Obra was born in 1895 and she died in 1926. The names on the headstone read R. Ben, Dora and Obra.
