Biography*  Charles W. Culpepper's birth was recorded in the Family Bible of his sister, Mrs. I. W. (Sarah A. B. Culpepper) Sims: _________________________Charles W. Culpepper Born _________________________16. July, 1824
      According to census records and his Civil War pension application, Charles William was born in South Carolina. A granddaughter, Mrs. W. B. (M. Louise Culpepper) Broach, wrote in a 27 Sep 1978 letter that he was born in Lexington District, SC. Although Charles William's parents have not been located in the 1820 census records, his grandmother, the widowed Barbara (Derrick) Corley was recorded in 1820 census in Lexington District, SC.

      According to his Civil War pension application, Charles William had resided in Georgia since 2 Dec 1830. However census records for his sister, Sarah, who was born in 1826 and his brother, James, who was born in 1829 indicate that they were both born in Georgia and the Charles' parents probably moved the family to Georgia around 1825. Also, Charles William was noted as one of 2 males 5-10 years of age, living with his parents in the 1830 census of Crawford Co., GA. Although family members have not been located in the 1840 census, they apparently remained in Crawford Co., GA until Dec 1839 when Joel Culpepper died.

Charles William is next noted in Monroe Co., GA marrying Mary Jane English in 1848. In the 1850 census, Charles William emerged as a head of household living near his widowed mother. He was listed as a boot and shoemaker; however, in the 1860 census Charles William was listed as a farmer with real estate valued at $2,000 and personal property valued at $5,100.

      According to Charles W. Culpepper's Civil War pension application, in 1861, in Newnan, Coweta Co., GA, he enlisted in the Confederate Army in Co. H 4th Georgia Regiment. It is interesting to note that Charles William who was listed as a boot and shoemaker in the 1850 census was detailed to make harnesses and shoes for his company in the winter of 1864.

      After the War, Charles returned home and "Charles W. Culpeper" [sic] was recorded with his wife and younger children in the 1870 census of the Calhoun P. O. district of Gordon Co., GA. He had real estate valued at $1,200 and personal property valued at $1,000. Charles was noted with his wife and younger children in the 1880 census of Gordon Co., GA. And, shortly before his death, he was recorded with his wife and two daughters, living with his son, Joel Culpepper, in the 1900 census of Gordon Co., GA.
      James Burie Clegg wrote 16 Nov 1978 that he had spoken to Judge Harbin King who said that "Charles William had a good sized plantation in the West Union Church vicinity...." In a 22 Nov 1978 letter James Burie Clegg wrote of a visit to the land: The foreman of the plantation drove me around the entire estate, unlocking gates, etc. and showing me the cabin in which C. W. first lived (it has been added to and serves as a retreat beside a large beautiful lake). This foreman said one of the Culpeppers gave at least three tracts of land - one a hundred acres - to negroes who had worked for them over the years. A big prosperous Negro community is now in that area.

      In a 30 Jan 1979 letter, James Burie Clegg enclosed a clipping from "today's" Calhoun Times which mentioned Roland Hayes who was "a famous Negro tenor who came from the Curryville community right close to the C. W. Culpepper plantation. One of the Culpeppers, either C. W., the original plantation owner (4000 acres) or C. E. the grandson and millionaire, gave three or four tracts of land to some blacks who worked for them. One tract was of 100 acres." Roland Hayes, world famous tenor sang to an audience of over 4,000 people in Atlanta last week, and then came to Curryville to spend the weekend with his brother.

      James Burie Clegg added that there is "a Roland Hayes Memorial by the road just before you get to the West Union Church."

      The following is from a Sep 27 1978 letter from Mrs. W. B. (M. Louise Culpepper) Broach: Charles Wm. Culpepper, my grand father was born July 16, 1824 in Lexington [District] S.C. He died June 8, 1900 and is buried in a country church yard in (West Union) Gordon County [GA]. They were living (he and his wife Mary Jane English) ...in Haralson in Coweta, Co. Ga. when he decided to go to Texas [circa 1869]. I do not know how he found the place in N.W. Ga on John's Creek between two mountain ranges [the boundary between Floyd and Gordon counties]. It was beautiful country - he bought a house and several hundred acres of farmland. It was well watered and he was a master farmer. He did well with his mill and gin on the creek in sight of the house, too. He fought in the War between the states in Gen. Joe Wheeler's Cavalry [Company H, 4th GA Infantry, CSA]. When the family moved from Haralson, his oldest daughter Annira (called Anna) stayed and married a young man named Willie Gay. ...they [Charles William Culpepper and Mary Jane English] had nine other children in all. A happier bunch of people you never saw. They had a close family spirit and enjoyed each other. They had lots of company too -- he [Charles William] was said to have an attractive personality that drew all to him, especially young people. He would let them have their square dances at his house and they had lots of fun.... My grand father was not a church man until middle age when Sam Jones, a local evangelist, came into the neighborhood and had a great influence on him. He became a Methodist and helped build a church in his neighborhood he gave the land and he and the children at home became members of that church, and all continued to be good Methodists as long as they lived.... They [the Culpepper's] were good looking - they were of medium height, some a little portly, but they all had fine-pored white skin and a peculiar blue eye. The eyes were a light blue, and sharp - very distinctive and were always called the "Culpepper eyes" by all who knew them. Most of them had black hair. I never heard from whence they inherited these features. They were all what used to be called "jolly" and full of fun.

      In a Nov 5, 1978 letter, Mrs. Broach wrote that after the Civil War Charles William suffered from an illness that left him an invalid and unable to work the family farm. In a 5 Nov 1978 letter, Mrs. W. B. (M. Louise Culpepper) Broach, wrote about Charles William's son, Rev. Elam Culpepper: His house was a two-storied frame house with many porches [on land he bought next to his father's farm in Gordon County, almost in sight of his father's old home place. Both of these homes have since burned to the ground in separate fires.] and by the time I was 12 years old, Cousin Charles [Emory Culpepper] had had all those porches glassed in, had put in central heat and electric lights (way before Rural Electrification). My uncle was retired from city churches and just preached around in the country as invited. He was not a big, robust man and he was running his father's old mill on the creek. Cousin Charlie had the latest mill machinery installed for him and he enjoyed grinding corn for his neighbors as long as he lived....
      James Burie Clegg wrote 22 Nov 1978 that he tried to take a picture of the foundation of the old mill on the creek and added "I couldn't get near enough to it, as I had to take it from a bridge (built by the Culpeppers) about 40 yards away."

The following is from a manuscript by Kathyrn English Culpepper, as transcribed by Gayle L. Poole:

Some Interesting Facts about Charles William

During the War Between The States (Civil War) he served in Wheeler's Calvary. He rode his favorite horse, named "Flying Jenny". She was fast as lightning and took him through the war without a scratch (he was in many tight places, but Jenny always took
him to safety) and brought him home at the end.

Charles was a Master Farmer, loved and respected by all who knew him, and loved to visit him. Young men were drawn to him on Sunday afternoons to hear his amusing stories and funny jokes.

He had a very large house and the two front rooms had a door between them and he allowed the young people to have dances there. The fiddlers could sit in the doorway and accommodate a set in each room. Sally Bit, his nickname for Sarah Elizabeth was a very graceful dancer. 'Tis said she could dance with a glass of water and never spill a drop.

Years later a contemporary of his children to this granddaughter that when they drove up to the house and hitched their horses, they could hear the fiddler tuning up, and did not bother to find the gate, they just jumped the fence in their haste to get inside for the first set.

Charles William donated a piece of ground for a small Methodist Church called "Johnson's Chapel". The Johnson family lived only a few hundred yards from the church and were very active members. Their home was on a rise above where there were, at least, a hundred springs. These springs are the headwaters of the Johnson Spring Branch which flows through the Culpepper property, and into John's Creek. On the bank of John's Creek Charles built a dam, and a mill to grind corn and wheat. Also a tannery, and a cotton gin. Farmers from all around came to use these facilities. (Years later W. B. Broach, husband of Louise, the daughter of William Henry, bought up the Culpepper and made two large lakes from this Johnson's Springs Branch. He had a cottage on one of these lakes, where his family spent summers and holidays, and entertained their friends with hunting, fishing, swimming and boating, He also raised cattle),

Charles William lost his health one cold night in January, all his mills burned to the ground. One of his neighbors who was operating the bucket brigade from the creek, noticed that Culpepper, on coming out of one of the burning buildings was ready to burst into flames, and dashed a bucket of icy creek water over him. He took pneumonia and was never able to work again.

Biography*  Mary Jane was recorded with her husband and children in the 1850 and 1860 census records of Coweta Co., GA. Before 1870 the family had moved on to Gordon Co., GA where Mary Jane and her husband would remain. Mary Jane was listed with her husband and younger children in the 1880 census of Gordon Co., GA. And Mary J. Culpepper was recorded with her husband and two daughters living with her son, Joel Culpepper, in the 1900 census of Gordon Co., GA. In a 5 Nov 1978 letter, Mrs. William B. Broach wrote about her grandmother, Mary Jane (English) Culpepper: Her interest seemed to be going where there was illness and doing good neighborly things like taking food, bedding and the like. Back in those days when there were no agencies to care for the poor, neighbors had to do what they could. There were two good doctors in that general area and they were the ones who said that where ever there was need, they found Mrs. Culpepper there.

The following is from a manuscript by Kathryn English Culpepper, as transcribed by Gayle L. Poole:

And now, a few words about his wife, Mary Jane. She too, was a very kind and gentle, not only to people, but also to animals. It was a rare and beautiful sight to se her walking in the yard with cats, dogs, geese, ducks and chickens tagging behind her in a straight row.

She was a "Hard Shell Baptist" (now called Primitive Baptists). She was deeply concerned about people, and anyone, (for miles around), who had sickness in the family came (sometimes many miles) to get her help. She never refused anybody, but kept a basket full of medicines, bedclothes, etc., to take whenever she was called. Will Henry told this story: "One cold winter night someone hailed her from the yard. He had a very sick member of his family and needed her help. She sent the man on back home while she dressed and fathered the provisions she would need. It was after midnight and Will (a young boy) insisted on going with her, but when they came to the creek they found the footlog had washed away. She sat down, removed her shoes and stockings, sent Will back home, and waded through that icy creek to get to the sick person.

The poor people always knew when the Culpeppers killed hogs, and on the following Sunday after Church, they flocked to her house for a good meal. They were never turned away.

Often on Sundays they would be so many to eat, they had to have three or four shifts at the dining table. Lula and "Lenny" who were young women, had the job of waiting on table, serving the food. There were so many things said and done by the guests
that Lula and Lenny would have to make a dive for the kitchen and smother their giggles. For instance, a little boy sang out " Thank you for the sur-rup". The mother promptly elbowed him in the ribs and whispered. "Eat meat, you can get surrup at home".

Another time a big, fat girl who was subject to "fits" (probably epilepsy) had been hiding the food and drinking the coffee. For the fifth time Lula said, "Mary will you have another cup of coffee"! The answer was just give me a half cup, I'm afraid I'll have one of my spells". Lula and Lenny promptly had business in the kitchen.

Will told of the time when a little boy, he was at church, seated all alone (for some reason) when a woman came in wither her daughter and went up to the very front row. The service had started, the preacher getting warmed up, when, all of a sudden,
the daughter had one of her spells ( a seizure of some kind). The preacher stopped and hurried to see if her could help, and all the people gathered around making suggestions and trying to help. The woman kept telling them to move back, but everybody kept
crowding in. Finally the mother lost her temper and yelled " God or no God, Sal's gotta have ar (air).

Extinct Surname?* The family branch headed by James D. Culpepper is believed to have no living male descendants with the Culpepper surname. If you know otherwise, please contact Warren Culpepper using the link at the bottom of this page. 
Birth*23 Feb 1829 James was born at Crawford Co., Georgia, on 23 Feb 1829.1

Burial*circa 15 Mar 1894 His body was interred circa 15 Mar 1894 at Haralson United Methodist Church Cemetery, Haralson, Coweta Co., Georgia.1 
Biography* James Culpepper's birth was recorded in the Family Bible of his sister Mrs. I. W. (Sarah A. B. Culpepper) Sims: _________________________James D. Culpepper Born _________________________23. February, 1829
      There is some question about whether or not the middle initial should be a "D." or "B." In the Bible record of his birth and death, his name is recorded as "James D." However in the 1850 census and in his marriage record, he was listed as "James B." Mrs. T. R. (Sarah Murphy) Wainscott, in a 23 Aug 1977 letter, listed him as "James Benjamin."
      James was first noted with his parents in the 1830 Crawford Co., GA census and this is where he is presumed to have been born. Unfortunately, the widowed Nancy (Corley) Culpepper has not been found with her family in the 1840 census but since Joel Culpepper is believed to have died in Crawford Co., GA in Dec 1839, the family is presumed to have been living in Crawford Co., GA until that time. Some time before 1850, James moved with his mother to Coweta Co., GA where the family has been found in the 1850 census and where James apparently remained for the rest of his life. He was noted with his wife and young family in the 1870 census of Senoia, Coweta Co., GA. He was a shoemaker with real estate valued at $150 and personal property valued as $265. Unfortunately, James has not been located in the 1880 census and the 1890 census burned but, based on the obituary which follows, he remained in Coweta Co., GA.
      The following death notice is from the Griffin Weekly News and Sun 30 Mar 1894: Haralson, GA, March 23 -- All Haralson mourns the death, last Wednesday night, of one of our highly esteemed citizens, James D. Culpepper. Mr. C. was for 40 years a consistent and honored member of the Methodist church at this place.... For many years he ran a tannery and hide shop at this place.... Mr. C. was a bright Master Mason, a true Christian, an honest upright man. His place will be hard to fill in our community.
