Biography* Vinchey Parzada Ryalls who married Daniel Culpepper in Selma, Dallas County, AL on 25 July 1899.

Her name was Virgie or Virtue Parzada Dillard, (she was called Virgie), and she had a sister named Highly Christian Dillard. After her father was buried in Savannah, GA, she was brought to Selma, Dallas County, AL as a young girl by her mother. She married Richard Wright Ryalls sometime around 1885, and had six children by him. All of those children were born in Dale County, AL.

When the eldest was but 8 years old, Richard Ryalls died, and Virgie Dillard Ryalls placed her six children in the Methodist Children's Home in Selma, Dallas County, AL.(I presume she returned to her mother's residence.) The children were actually taken there by her sister Highly Christian Dillard, who signed their admission papers. Virgie Dillard Ryalls reclaimed her children 9 months later in 1896; unfortunately one died before her return.

She married Daniel Culpepper in 1899, and her children were at that time between the ages of 5 and 14. Addie Parzada Ryalls, her second eldest daughter was 12.

Biography* From Dave Knoblock, July 2001:
"Curley was pretty well known for his music around this area back in the late 50's, 60's and 70''s. My understanding from his brother, Gene, and some of his kids is that he knew Hank Williams in the early 40's around Montgomery and played backup for him in Nashville sometimes. I've seen at least one photo of Hank and Curley on the same stage at the same time, (I think, at a radio station). Curley went in the Navy for a while in 1943 and when he got out, among other things, traveled around with "Fuzzy" St. John and Johnny Mack Brown doing shows (like we used to see at the theaters growing up). He had some bit parts in a couple of westerns. And one time, at one of these traveling shows, while doing a "fake" fight scene with Johnny Mack Brown, Johnny connected and really knocked Curley off the stage. But they supposedly had a good time anyway."2
