PHOTOGRAPH INFORMATION

                        Son of Mamie Clark Culpeper
                        Grandson of Horace and Martha (Davis) Clark

WHERE PURCHASED: Denison, Texas
WHEN PURCHESED: June 10, 2013



NOTE: Here is my thinking for believing this Roland Culpepper is the son of Roland Hill
            and Mary Katherine (Clark) Culpepper.
            1) In the 1900 census for Houston, Texas listed below Mary Culpepper is listed as being
                the mother of 4 children of which only 3 are living.
            2) The child in the photograph above appears to be to young to be sitting up on
                 its own. I believe this may be a post-mortum photographs which was very
                 common when a child died to have something to remember them by.
             3) Roland is not listed with the family in the 1880 census for Houston, Texas which
                 would indicate that he had probably died prior to the census. He is listed as 6 months
                 old in 1878 on the back of the photograph.
             4) Roland is listed as the grandson of Horace Clark on the back of the photograph.
                  Horace Clark is living with Mary K. Culpepper and listed as her father on the 1900 census.
