     Emanuel Joseph (Joe) Culpepper was the great-grandfather of Metta Maxine Culpepper Barron. Emanuel Joseph Culpepper was born July 4. 1824, in Georgia. He married Pamelia Ann Phillips, who was born in Georgia on August 29,1828. They lived in Georgia until 1852 or later.
     They are listed in 1860 census of Jackson County, Alabama on p. III, post office Straight Creek. There were no Culpeppers, listed in the Jackson County, Alabama earlier. Emanuel Joseph Culpepper died May 30, 1889. Pamelia Ann died April 15, 1899. They are both buried at Old Antioch cemetery, in DeKalb County, Alabama, between Fyffe and Section, Al. On County Road ?.
     We have been told that Emanuel Joseph's parents lived with him in Alabama for a while, but can find no records of this. Pamelia Ann was a school teacher, Mr. Culpepper was listed as a laborer and as a farmer. Mr. Culpepper 's sons all were granted land in their name from the General Land Office of the U. S. A. , in or around 1862. The amount that they each received was 159.09 acres. The law stated that they had to homestead less than 160 acres. These records are in the Federal Office Building, in Huntsville, Al. Mr. Culpepper's girls also homesteaded this amount of land in their husband's names. I have a opy of the application for William Monty Culpepper's land. There is an riginal copy of this, in our family. The Culpepper land all joined at ne time, and was known as the "Culpepper Community", in Jackson County, AL The area was served by the post office known as Tally, in 1890.
     It is said that Emanuel Joseph Culpepper was a Union Army sympathizer, but this was not proven. He did serve in the Army. Mrs. Culpepper had a brother, 17 years old, who was killed in the war. There is quite a story about this. He is buried in an unmarked grave at Old Sardis Cemetery in Jackson Co. Hagwood Cemetery was named after a man named Hagwood, who was trying to recruit men for the Union Army, was hanged and buried "on the spot".
     Stories were told in the family of several or seven Culpepper boys and two or three of their married sisters and their families getting separated as they traveled "South" The girls names were lost, but it is believed that this is where the tie comes with the Culpeppers on Lookout Mountain, and around Fort Payne and Center, Alabama.
