Census Records

A special thanks to Pat Roberts for transcribing all of our Oklahoma Census records.

Oklahoma was opened to white settlers with the Oklahoma Land Rush of 1889. The earliest extant census for Oklahoma Territory is for 1900, and Oklahoma Territory became a state in 1907. No Culpeppers have been found in any Jackson County censuses prior to 1910.

Boggy Cemetery

Jackson County, Oklahoma

Directions: From Eldorado, turn south on Cemetery Road. Go to the first paved road (about 1/2 mile) turn East on that road. Follow the road approximately 8 miles to Boggy Cemetery. (The road will curve and make several sharp turns, stay on the paved road.)

Source: Provided to Culpepper Connections by Kim Carter, who wrote on 27 Jun 2006: "I am sending the Ballard and Fancher listing from this cemetery... I have been told that Ruth Fancher Culpepper had some siblings. One that I am almost certain of is Lonley Travis Fancher (below). He was known as "Trav".  The Wiley D Ballard listed is the grandfather that gave Ruth Fancher her name so with this information I am assuming he is the father of Daisy Lavina Ballard Fancher . I am also wondering if Sarah J Ballard 1856-1944 could be wife to Wiley D.
