Mrs. Laura Culpepper

Died, at her home, at Norphlet November 9, 1898, Mrs. Laura Culpepper, age 47 years, 3 months and 19 days.  Mrs. Culpepper was raised in this county and had many warm friends here who will regret to learn that that dread disease, consumption, laid hold upon her vitals and soon carried her across that dark river from whence no traveler ever returns.  Mrs. Culpepper was a Miss Curl, the daughter of a local methodist preacher who lived here for years.

In 1868 she was married to Mr. B.F. Culpepper, with whom she lived pleasantly until eight years ago when death invaded their home and Mr. Culpepper was called to his final rest.  Six children were born to them; five of them survive Mrs. Culpepper to mourn their loss.  She was a good woman and an affectionate wife and mother.  Besides her children she leaves a brother, Leonidas Curl, of Grace, and several sisters, many neices and nephews and also many friends to whom the HERALD extends sympathy.
