Caperton Genealogy

Hear Jack Caperton, III (my daddy) singing!  This was recorded in 1964 on a little tape recorder so the sound is not perfect but the voice is!  His voice today is even better!  His father, Jack II and my brother Jack Stanley, have the same beautiful voice.
Part 1                                              Part 2

This is my Caperton line, there is far too much information to list all the Caperton's line.  Most of my information was obtained from Bernard Caperton's book, "The Caperton Family".  I would be happy to look up anything for you but there are so many requests for me to copy chapters out of the book, I do not have the time to do that and at this time, I do not have a flat scanner.   The book is now available on CD rom thanks to Donald Caperton and Bernard Caperton's daughters...  

I will number individuals according to Bernard Caperton's system and continue from there.

I just found this information about John Caperton on  I am hoping this is our link to John's coming to America from Scotland.....

    We called him "Big Jack".  Big Jack was once a Cotton Plant Marshall.  He owned "Jacks Pit Bar-B-Q"
in Cotton Plant, just across from Stewmon's Automotive, off Main Street, behind the bank.  The building is
no longer there.  People came from all over the state on Sunday's to eat there.  He would stand behind
the counter and talk to everyone.  Jack was tall, 6'3".  He played semi pro basketball in his younger years
and still holds numerous records in Pine Bluff High School and Teacher's College.  
He worked on the railroad in Pine Bluff for a short period and drove a delivery truck for Colonial bread.
