[signed] John [x] Culpepper (Seal).
Witness D. T. Driver, John D. Brittain, Hiram Artman.

At a court held for Norfolk County on the 16th day of November 1857 The las Will and Testament of John Culpepper dec'd was prov ed by the oaths of D. T. Driver and John D. Brittain two of the subscribing witnesses thereto and ordered to be recorded. On the motion of Sylvester Moore who made oath thereto and together with John Moore his security entered into and acknowledged a bond in the penalty of One thousand dollars conditioned according to law. which Bond is ordered to be recorded.

Death*before 16 November 1857 He died at Portsmouth Parish, Norfolk Co., Virginia, before 16 November 1857. 
Research note*3 September 2004 John Culpepper is assumed to have been a son of Thomas Culpepper [ID 84] since Sylvester B. Moore was the administrator (with will annexed) of his will. And Sylvester B. Moore lived almost adjacent to this Thomas Culpepper in 1860, and was a witness to Thomas' will in 1867. Also, census records indicate that Thomas probably had another son not mentioned in his will.

Obituary*21 January 1904 Written by Joseph Elsiha Culpepper of Valdosta, GA upon the death of his Uncle Simon Bickley:
     Mr. Simon Bickley, one of the oldest and best know citizens of Talbot County, died at his home about eight miles southwest of Talbotton, Monday morning. He had been confined to his for some days and his death was not unexpected. Mr. Bickley was eighty one years of age, and for over fifty years had been a resident of this county. He was buried at the cemetery in Talbotton Tuesday afternoon. Rev. Tom Stuart of Waverly Hall conducted the burial service.

In Memory of Simon P. Bickley
     On January 18, 1904 Uncle Simon Bickley departed this life and while the ereaved family mourns the loss of a kind and loving husband and father, we rejoice in the memory of the good influences of the life he lived and the legacy he left behind, for the Good Book tells us that a good name is rather to be chosen than great riches.
     The writer first remembers him, as an old man of noble character, whose home we delighted to visit, a home that was governed by Christian influences that emanated from its head, the image of whose life shows it impress upon the lives and character of his children.
     Uncle Simon’s home was ruled by right, tempered with love and adorned by a Christian spirit which permeated the entire circle of his acquaintance. I commend his life to all as an example of purity and honesty.
     Born May 11, 1821 in Newberry Dist., S.C., he moved to Georgia in 1844, was married to Miss Culond in 1846 who died the same year leaving twin boys. In 1847 he married Miss A.E. Biggs who survives him. Their married life was blessed with twelve children most of whom are still living, some living in Texas, I cannot recall just now their various places of resident.
     As a soldier he was true to his country, responding to the call to arms in 1861. He served throughout the war with three of his sons, returning home he was true to his trust as husband and father.
     As a Christian he lived his profession well – was a consistent member of the Methodist church. My heart is touched now as I recall him presiding at the family altar which he erected in his home as it was his custom to call the family together after the evening meal and the entire family joining in reading the Bible after which thanks were offered to the giver of all good gifts.
     It has been said that the lives of great men all remind us that we can make our lives sublime, and departing leave behind us foot prints upon the souls of time. Uncle Simon has written his name upon the tablets of our memory and his beautiful life was a benediction to all who knew him. We cherish his memory and honor his name.1
