Apperson's name is sometimes spelled as Epperson. He was known as "Big App" because he was such a large man.

He was said to have had at least eight wives and at least twenty-three children. But nobody knows for sure. His reputation for "womanizing" was legendary.

His first wife was probably Rebecca Mann, the daughter of Thomas Mann and Louisa Eliza Craft. They got married in 1868 and had eleven children. But then they got divorced.

Apperson married Emily Patrick in 1890, at his house. They had at least six children.

Apperson married Nannie Mullins on Sept. 6, 1909.

Apperson married Biddie Watkins on June 12, 1910.

Apperson also married Sudie Minnix, Martha Miller, Emma Howard, and a woman whose first name was either Dulcenia or Clarindy. But it is not known exactly when he married these four women.

After Apperson married Hattie Hon in 1912, they had three children.

His last wife was Hattie (Hon) Campbell. She out-lived him. He died of senility at age 93.
