  • Notes 
    • 1860 Census Almond P. O. District, near Louina (now Wadley), Randolph
      Co., AL. p. 838? #1526: Catherine 65 SC in hh of John J. Culpepper.

      According to census records, Catherine was born in South Carolina. Her
      mother, Barbary, was recorded in the 1820 census of Edgefield
      District, SC and this is where Catherine is believed to have married
      John Jefferson Culpepper. Barbary Bell died sometime after the 1820
      census and before Jan 1826 when "Catharine Culpepper" and her husband,
      "John J. Culpepper" were listed in a 13 Jan 1826 Edgefield District,
      SC deed with Wm. Bell, Robert Bell, Margaret Bell and Mary Bell as
      heirs of Barbary Bell. The land mentioned in the deed was on Cuffeeton
      Creek by Josiah Langley's Mill bounding Elijah Harding, Benjamin
      Hasting and Geo. McDuffie's land, and had originally been granted to
      Geo. Shelnut and was very close if not adjacent to the land that John
      Culpepper, Senior sold in 1823. The heirs of Barbary Bell granted the
      land to Wm. H. Buffington for $651. Hugh Mosely and Henry Shelnut were
      witnesses and releases were signed by Catherine Culpepper wife of John
      J. Culpepper and Mary Ann Bell wife of William Bell on 13 Jan 1826.
      The deed was recorded 22 Nov 1830. Catherine and John J. Culpepper
      presumably returned from Georgia to settle the estate since based on
      1827 Georgia Land Lottery records, John J. Culpepper, was supposed to
      have been in Georgia since 1824.

      Catherine was recorded with her husband and children in the 1830
      census of Upson Co., GA and the 1840 and 1850 Chambers Co., AL census.
      And Catherine was noted in the 1860 census of Almond P. O. District,
      near Louina (now Wadley), Randolph Co., AL with her husband and
      grandson. She was not noted in the 1870 census and is presumed to have
      died in the interim in Randolph Co., AL.

      John William Culpepper wrote 18 Aug 1994 that a descendant, Mrs. John
      (Edith Champion) Zuber, said that Catherine was buried with her
      husband in the Concord Baptist Church Cemetery. The grave was not
      recorded in the index of church cemetery records possibly because the
      grave was unmarked or is too worn to read.
