Terrell County

History

In the Upper Coastal Plains Region of Georgia, Terrell County was formed in 1856 from eastern Randolph and western Lee Counties. Its county seat, Dawson, is on US-82 about 170 miles south of Atlanta and 60 miles SSE of Columbus. Terrell is bordered by the counties of Webster, Sumter, Lee, Dougherty, Calhoun and Randolph.

Census Records

No Culpeppers were found in any Terrell County censuses prior to 1870.
Only 1900 and 1910 have not been checked for Black Culpeppers.

1870 US Census

Prior to 1870, Terrell picked up a very small southwestern corner of Sumter County, and the Culpepper  family below may have ended up in Terrell County as a result since they were in Sumter in 1860.
