Warren Lawson Shelfer Culpepper was the son of Eula Frances Shelfer and Warren Ebenezer Culpepper. There are several birthdates on record for Lawson as he was most often called. Only his marker has the Shelfer name. The family bible has:
Warren Lawson Culpepper was born Oct 4, 1894
Warren Lawson Culpepper Died Dec 4, 1920
Death Certificate says Dec 3, 1:30 am, obit says Friday night. Dec 3 was a Friday, so that would make it Dec 4 at 1:30am.) I do not have a record as to who ordered his marker.
