Biography* Mrs. D. W. (Ira Gay) Deam of Gay, GA preserved the John Culpepper Bible record of George Washington Culpepper's birth which was copied by Mrs. D. W. (Lavyn Wright) Sisco: _________________________George Washington Culpepper _________________________b. December 6 1808 _________________________On Tuesday at 2 o'clock P.M.
     This is the same date that appears on George Washington Culpepper's tombstone. However, the birth date that was recorded in George W. Culpepper's Bible (published Saratoga Springs by G. M. Davison 1830) was transcribed: "George W. Culpepper was born December 8th, 1808." A perpetual calendar shows that 6 Dec 1808 was a Tuesday which would seem to give more weight to the record in his father's Bible and the date on the tombstone. The George W. Culpepper Bible record of the marriage was transcribed: "George W Culpepper and Perlina Perdue was Married Feb the 17th 1831." Finally, the death record from the same Bible was transcribed: "G. W. Culpepper departed this life quietly and peasfully December 20th 1901 at 2 o'clock in the morning. done [recorded] by his devoted son J. D."
     Although his obituary indicates that G. W. Culpepper was born in Edgefield District, SC, he was probably born in what was then known as Richland District, SC. By 1807, his father, John Culpepper appeared in Richland District, SC estate records as an administrator of the estate of Daniel Peek, Nancy (Gillespie) Culpepper's presumed grandfather. And in the 1810 census of Richland District, SC, John Culpepper was listed with his wife and six sons (including G. W. Culpepper) and one daughter. It is possible that the John Culpepper family had moved on to Edgefield District, SC by 1813 since William Henry Culpepper reported on his Civil War record that he was born there in 1813. George's father, John Culpepper, received a state grant of 138 acres on Cuffeetown Creek in Edgefield District, SC in 1814 and this is where George's youngest brother, Lewis Peek Culpepper was born. George Washington's father, John Culpepper, has not been found in the 1820 census records of South Carolina or Georgia. The family is presumed to have been living in Edgefield District, SC since in 1823, John Culpepper sold 144 acres on Cuffetown Creek "where I now live" for $800. The family tradition is that John Culpepper moved his family, including George Washington Culpepper, to Georgia when the youngest son, Lewis Peek Culpepper, was seven years old, this would have been 1823/1824. However the earliest record that has been found is an 1827 deed showing that John Culpepper purchased land in the Twelfth District of Monroe Co., GA for $800 from Warren T. Castelberry. John Culpepper was in the 1830 census of Monroe, Co., GA with his wife and 1 10-15 year old male, presumably his youngest son, Lewis Peek Culpepper. Although not yet married, George Washington Culpepper and William Henry Culpepper had apparently already moved out but neither has been found as a head of household in the 1830 census. George Washington Culpepper was apparently still in Monroe County, GA since that is where he married Perlina Perdue. However they must have moved to Meriwether Co., GA shortly thereafter since "George W. Culpepper, Arrington's, Merriwether" was recorded drawing lot 204 in the 5th district of the section 3 in the 1832 Cherokee Land Lottery. As a married man who was a U. S. citizen and who had resided in Georgia for three years, he was elibible for two draws in the lottery. He had claimed his land before Jan 1838 when James F. Smith published a numerical list of the "fortunate drawers" from that lottery. The land was a 160 acre lot near Petits Creek and the Tennessee Road in what was Cass Co., GA and is now Bartow Co., GA. No record has been found of George Washington Culpepper selling this land but he apparently did since he remained in Meriwether Co., GA for the remainder of his life.
     The Culpepper's were listed in the 21 Apr 1905 Greenville, Meriwether Co., GA Vindicator as pioneers of the Greenville, Meriwether County area: Nearly eighty years ago a group of hardy yeomanry settled on adjacent farms a few miles northwest of Greenville near the old Ector mill (now Maffett's). They were John, George and William Culpepper, Allen, Eli and David Peavy, Freeman Blount, Daniel Keith, Joel Sears, William Sutherland, Robert Kendrick, James Martin and the Carlisles....
     In fact, the "eighty years ago" might be a reference to 1827 when Meriwether County was formed from Troup County, GA but based on land, census and marriage records, John Culpepper was in Monroe Co., GA until at least 1832. George Washington Culpepper appears to have been in Monroe County until at least 1831, although, since he has not been located in the 1830 census, it is possible that he was in Meriwether Co., GA and returned to Monroe to be married. And William Henry Culpepper is not believed to have moved his family to Meriwether Co., GA until after the 1835 birth of his son, John Malcolm Culpepper. As noted above, G. W. Culpepper and Perlina Perdue apparently moved to Meriwether Co, GA before the birth of their first child, Maryann, in 1832, since George Washington Culpepper of "Arrington's, Merriwether" drew a lot in the 1832 Cherokee Land Lottery. According to G. W. Culpepper's obituary in The Meriwether Vindicator Friday, 3 Jan 1902, he and his family were living "at what is known as the Beecham Perdue place in the Third District, where he lived when he first moved to this county [Meriwether]" when Maryann died in 1833. G. W. Culpepper does not appear in the Meriwether Co., GA deed records until 1835 when he shows up as a grantee in the 9th District (D-281). John William Culpepper obtained a copy of a 6 Mar 1838 deed (F-233, 234) in which George W. was recorded with his brother, William Henry Culpepper purchasing lot 256 containing 202 1/2 acres in the 8th District of Meriwether Co., GA from Levi M. Adams. Their father, John Culpepper, was also recorded purchasing 50 acres in the next lot in the 8th District of Meriwether County in 1838 (F-296). In 1839, 1842, 1849, 1852 and 1853 George W. Culpepper obtained five more tracts of land in the 11th District of Meriwether County (F-538, G-452, J-126, K-164, K-167). John William Culpepper obtained a copy of F-538 in which on 18 Apr 1839 for $405, Noah Smith sold G. W. Culpepper "half lot of land No. seventy five. Containing one hundred one and a fourth acres more or less. Situate lying and being in the Eleventh district of originally Troup now Meriwether County, and Known as the North half of said lot of land."
     G. W. Culpepper was noted in 1840 and 1850 census records of Meriwether Co., GA. In the 1860 census George. W. Culpepper was recorded with his wife and younger children in the Lutherville P.O. district of Meriwether Co., GA. He owned $2,000 in real estate and had $2,000 in personal property. In January 1863, G. W. Culpepper was mentioned along with five other children, grandchildren, and sons-in-law in Monroe Co., GA deed records (D-580, D585) as relinquishing all claims to the estate of James Perdue, the father of Perlina Perdue, G. W. Culpepper's wife. In exchange, the group received the deed to the plantation where James Perdue lived which they immediately sold to Edmund Dumas for $3,100.
      George W. Culpepper's sons began appearing in the Meriwether Co., GA deed records after the Civil War. In the 1870 census of Greenville P. O. District, Meriwether Co., GA, George Culpepper was recorded with his wife and two youngest children. His real estate was valued at $700 and his personal property was valued at $500. George Culpepper was noted in the 1880 census of Meriwether Co., GA with his wife, son Joel, and Joel's young family. In the 1900 census, "Geo. W. Culpepper" was noted living with of his son, James D. Culpepper, and James's family in Lone Oak, Meriwether Co., GA.
     The following article appeared in the Greenville, GA Vindicator on April 21, 1905: George W. Culpepper came from South Carolina to Georgia in early life with his father John Culpepper with whom he resided for awhile near Greenville when he transferred his home to Baldwin county. Abiding there some years he returned to Meriwether locating in the northern part of the county near the Wilkes Gold Mine. That section was then in an embryo state of development and Mr. Culpepper was one of the leading spirits in agriculture, education and religious affairs in his community. He was a valuable citizen and neighbor and an influential factor for good in his home and in a wide circle around him. For sixty years or more he was an active, deeply pious, liberal supporting member of first Smith's Chapel and then Prospect Methodist church which absorbed the old chapel. Indeed this zealous old soldier of the Cross was one of the best known laymen of Methodism in this county and in the Georgia conference. Mr. Culpepper was a democrat and some years before the war, he served the county as tax collector [1849-1850]. He was wedded in early life to a Miss Perdue, a splendid christian helpmate and mother who, after about sixty years of conjugal life, passed away leaving her faithful consort - who a few years later died at the age of ninety two years. From this union grew a large family circle: James Culpepper, a useful man in peace and a gallant soldier in war, whose sad death by accident occurred not a great while since; Capt. John Culpepper who fell bravely in defence of southern rights while leading his company of the famous 8th Ga. Regiment in one of the battles near Richmond, Va., not long before the confederate surrender; Capt. Noah Culpepper, also a valiant confederate officer, and after the war, a well known literary teacher, now and long since a worthy citizen of Atlanta; Simeon F. Culpepper, for many years our most efficient clerk of the Superior court, and during the war a gallant member of the 8th Ga. Regiment who followed the flag of the confederacy from the 1st Manassas to the close of the war; George Culpepper, a successful planter and a clever gentleman of this county, near Lone Oak besides other worthy descendants of George W. Culpepper whose names we do not now recall.
     The following was written by W. T. Revill, Editor and Publisher of The Meriwether Vindicator which was published in Greenville, Meriwether Co., GA and it appeared Friday, 3 Jan 1902: Old Citizen Dead On the night of December 19th, 1901, George W. Culpepper died at the residence of his son, James D. Culpepper, near Lone Oak, Meriwether County, Georgia. He was born in Edgefield [probably Richland based on estate and census records] District, South Carolina, on December 8, 1808, which made him 93 years and 11 days old at the time of his death. His people seem to be blessed, if such it is, with longevity. He had a sister who died last year in Alabama at the age of 99 years. He has a brother in Lavaca County, TX, who was living when last heard from, who is over 97 years old. His youngest brother is still living and is near 80 years old. His father moved to Georgia when George W. was eight or nine [actually 15 or 16] years old and settled in Monroe County. At the age of twenty-five he married Perlina Perdue, near Forsyth, Georgia. She died July 27th, 1882. They raised nine children, seven boys and two girls, having lost their first child, a girl, while living at what is known as the Beecham Perdue place in the Third District, where he lived when he first moved to this county. He moved from there to a place three and a half miles above Greenville, now a part of the W. W. Jarrell or Eli Peavy place, and from there to the place on which he died in Lone Oak District. The last move was made about 1840. He was tax collector of Meriwether County in 1849 and 1850, having been elected by the Democratic party over Daniel Fling, the Whig candidate. He never asked for re-election at the close of the term for which he was elected. His education was limited. He went to school three months all told, taking every other week, or week about, as it is called, with his brother, yet he was an excellent reader, wrote a legible hand, and could make any calculation in the transaction of his ordinary business. He was a devoted Christian, having been thoroughly converted when about 25 years of age at a camp meeting in Monroe County and joining the Methodist Church, to which he was loyal to his death. When the whole county was a circuit for the church, or conference, he was nearly always sent to represent his church at the different quarterly conferences all over the county. His house was always the home of the "circuit riders," as they were formerly called. He was a member of the Bible class in the Sabbath school at Prospect Church as long as he was able to attend services. He was a regular attendant at all the church gatherings of "Old Prospect" until six or eight years ago when he began to get too feeble to attend, and he always spoke of his inability to attend with regret. He was present in this "old church" when Young J. Allen, our noted missionary to China, was converted, and in later years gave him his blessing when he first started from Grantville on his mission. His relatives are numerous and scattered over different sections of our country in South Carolina, Alabama, Texas, and other states. Some of them are noted Methodists. He was an incessant Bible reader, although a laboring man on the farm, he never failed to improve every spare moment in studying same and could quote any verse in the Bible if you would give him a word in it, and would tell you in what book and chapter same could be found. When his memory failed in all else, which it did about five years ago, he still remembered many important passages of scripture and would quote them correctly in conversation with any one. His funeral was preached by the pastor of the Grantville circuit, J. W. England, from 2nd Samuel, 3rd chapter, 38th verse. "And the king said unto his servants, Know ye not that there is a prince and a great man fallen this day in Israel?" After the sermon some of the oldest members of the church spoke of his laboring with them in church work over fifty years ago, and of his being always consistent in practicing what he professed. Some of the younger people spoke of the encouragement they had always received from him in trying to live right. It is gratifying to the community in which he lived a Christian life, to feel that he left a good example and to feel that he is now enjoying the happiness for which he spent a whole life of devotion to secure.
     The following mention of Lone Oak and Prospect Church is from "Lone Oak Notes" written by Mrs. Louise D. Herring circa 1894: Uncle George Culpepper, a veteran of fourscore, occupied his accustomed chair within the altar railing. In his case "the hoary head" is indeed "a crown of glory," and his upturned face, so full of interest as his heart drinks in "the droppings of the sanctuary," is a beautiful lesson to younger disciples.
     In a 16 Aug 1993 letter, John William Culpepper, a great-great-grandson of George Washington Culpepper, wrote that Eleanor (Culpepper) Willingham, Margaret Culpepper, and Nancy (Johnson) Gray took him to visit the remains of "the old homeplace of George and Perlina about two miles east of Lone Oak": It is on a rock road about 1/4 mile off the hard road. We found where the original home was by the foundation-chimney rocks and spring next to where the house stood. The rocks were in a clearing in the woods next to a dirt road leading to fields.... George Washington came to this place with his family in approximately 1840 and remained there until he died in 1901.
     Mrs. A. (Eleanor Culpepper) Willingham and her sister, Margaret Culpepper have been the historians for the George Washington Culpepper family and have collected scrapbooks full of information, copies of which have been made available to other family members. In addition, Mrs. Willingham published the History of Allen-Lee Memorial United Methodist Church (formerly Old Prospect Methodist Church) Lone Oak, Georgia 1844-1985 which contains church membership records, cemetery records and other valuable information about the church and the community.
