Biography* James Culpepper was born in Norfolk County, VA, about 1728 or so. He first appears in surviving Norfolk County tithable records in 1750. He was in Norfolk County tithable records until 1785. In any case, he was in Nash County, NC in 1782, when he bought 266 acres from Williamson Ross on the west side of Turkey Creek (Nash Co, NC Deed Bk. 1-226).
DB1-314: Jeremiah Deens of Nash Co. to William Andrews of Franklin Co. April 5, 1784. in the behalf of the Society of the Regular Baptist, for 50 pds. A parcel of 2 acres, it being part of a tract grante to William McGee in 1761. wit: Henry Deens, James Culpepper, Christopher Culpepper
     In Feb 1785, James, along with Daniel Taylor, witnessed the will of Edward Pursel in Nash County.
     In 1791 James bought another 150 acres in the same area from Simon Williams (Nash Co. Deed Bk 4-66). A 1794 deed shows that James Culpepper was living near James Bruce, perhaps a relative from Norfolk County, VA (Nash Co. Deed Bk. 6-20).

Biography* Christopher Culpepper first appeared in Nash County, NC deed records in 1784: DB1-314: Jeremiah Deens of Nash Co. to William Andrews of Franklin Co. April 5, 1784. in the behalf of the Society of the Regular Baptist, for 50 pds. A parcel of 2 acres, it being part of a tract granted to William McGee in 1761. wit: Henry Deens, James Culpepper, Christopher Culpepper
     In 1796, he witnessed a deed between Richard Deens and Jesse Bass for land on Little Peach Tree Creek (Nach Co. NC Deed Bk. 6-325). This would have been not long after Christopher married Celia Moreland. The couple's son David was born in 1801. In 1803, Christopher bought 109 acres from Augustan Bass on the west side of Turkey Creek, part of a grant to Jeremiah Deens (Nash Co. Deed Bk. 7-160). Also about 1803, Christopher and Celia had a daughter, Agnes. In 1804 Christopher sold 218 acres on the south side of Turkey Creek to his brother Henry, and the land was adjacent to his late brother Jeremiah Culpepper's land (Nash Co. Deed Bk. 7-261). In Jan 1805 Christopher and his wife Saley (Celia) sold their 109 acres on the west side of Turkey Creek to Thomas Carter (Nash Co. Deed Bk. 8-74). Their son Edmund was born in February of that year. Christopher soon moved to South Carolina, as his next two sons, Jeremiah and Wilson (or William), were born in South Carolina in 1807 and 1809. The next youngest son, Henry Culpepper, born in 1813, said he was born in Nash County, NC, so perhaps Christopher moved back to NC for a while. The youngest son, John, was born in Georgia in 1815, so that was about when Christopher first moved to Georgia. No records have been found of Christopher's location in Georgia prior to 1817, when he was selected for a jury in Laurens County, GA ("Laurens Co, GA Legal Records 1807-1832," by Allen Thomas). Christopher was not in the 1820 census of Georgia, and was perhaps missed by the census taker. By 1824 he was in Jones County, GA, as the Georgia Journal, Milledgeville, noted in January 1824 that Christopher had letter waiting for him at the Clinton post office in Jones County (Genealogical Abstracts from the Georgia Journal Newspaper, 1809-1840, by Fred R. Hartz). He was also in the 1830 census in Jones County. No record has been found of his estate, if any.

By James A. Culpepper and Mrs. Moley Culpepper, 1933

Aaron Pickren b. in Savannah Nov. 11, 1788, d. March 29, 1855, m. Lydia Henry (before moving to Muscogee Co.), b. Feb. 5, 1788, d. May 13, 1852. 8 ch: among them Robert F. b. June 18, 1826, m. Susan A. Wall July 8, 1852.

Of the Culpepper family we know nothing from records farther than our grandfather Christopher Culpepper. We were told by Judge Mark Biandford when he was in partnership with Thomas Grimes in. their law practice at Columbus, Ga. that the Culpeppers came to this country from England. There were three brothers who helped to build the city of Savannah. Judge Blandford said his father and my great grandfather whose name he said was Daniel were neighbors for years.

Christopher Culpepper came to Jones Co. and from there moved to Muscogee Co. in that part later Chattahoochee, and settled on lot of land No. 38 in 5th dist., on which afterwards he was buried in the S.W. corner. He brought with him two small sons, John and Henry, about 10 and 12 years of age. After the death of their parents they remained near their old home, John having purchased lot No. 39 lying south of their first home.

FatherJames Culpepper of Nash Co. NC1 (s 1728 - b Nov 1799)
MotherElizabeth (?) (s 1736 - a 1800)
DNA* Jeremiah has been proven by DNA and genealogical research to be a descendant of James Culpepper, son of Robert Culpepper, Jr., who is a grandson of Henry Culpepper of Lower Norfolk, VA. 
Birth*say 1774 Jeremiah was born at Norfolk Co., Virginia, say 1774.2 
Marriage*circa 1789 He married Patience (?) at Nash Co., North Carolina, circa 1789. 
1790 Census*2 August 1790 Jeremiah was listed as the head of a family on the 1790 Census on 2 August 1790 at Nash Co., North Carolina.3 
Deed*24 September 1792 He was granted a deed by Stephen Webb and Ann Webb on 24 September 1792 at Nash Co., North Carolina,

Stephen Webb and wife, Ann Web, of Nash Co, to Jeremiah Culpepper of same, 24 Sep 1792 for 25 pds Virginia money a tract of 100 acres adjoining John Pasmore. Wit: John Gay & Sion Bass.4 
Deed*4 March 1793 He was an adjacent landowner in the deed granted by Stephen Webb on 4 March 1793 at Nash Co., North Carolina,

Stephen Webb of Nash Co. to John Edwards of Franklin Co., 4 Mar 1793 for 85 pds. Virginia money a tract of 240 acres on both sides of the Tarborough River Adjoining Abraham Bass, Jesse Lawrence, John Webb, Jonah Johnson, John Pasmore, Jer. Culpepper, John Gay, and Sion Bass. Wit: Lewis Webb and Josiah Johnson.5 
(Heir) Will20 August 1799 Sarah, Elizabeth, Elizabeth, Selah, James, Christopher, Jeremiah and Henry named as heir(s) in the will of James Culpepper of Nash Co. NC at Nash Co., North Carolina, on 20 August 1799. 
Will*28 January 1800 He made a will at Nash Co., North Carolina, on 28 January 1800, naming as heir(s) Patience (?).

Wife: Pashions; all my children (unnamed); executor: Abraham Hedgepeth; witnesses: Jordan Bass, John Edwards, Abraham Hedgepeth, E. Edwards.6 
(free wh male 16-26) 1800 Census4 August 1800 Jeremiah and James was probably a free white male, age 16 and under 26, in Elizabeth (?)'s household on the 1800 Census at Nash Co., North Carolina. Enumerated in census but otherwise not identified are 1 M0-10 and 2 F16-26..7 
1800 Census*4 August 1800 Jeremiah was listed as the head of a family on the 1800 Census at Nash Co., North Carolina. Enumerated in the census but otherwise unaccounted for are 1 M0-10 and 1 F0-10..8 
Probate*February 1801 Probate action was taken on Jeremiah's estate in February 1801 at Nash Co., North Carolina
Death*1801 He died at Nash Co., North Carolina, in 1801. 
Research note* That this Jeremiah was the son of James is proven by James's will, which mentions his children by name. Jeremiah's own children are more problematic as in his will (see above), he did not specify their names.

The 1800 census of Nash Co. shows two listings for Jeremiah, one under his name, and the other under his wife Patience's name, both listings show four sons and a daughter, all under age ten. Of the five children, only two sons are proven.

The case for William Culpepper is perhaps the strongest. In Jan 1826 William Culpepper sold 100 acres to James Harrison for $20, "land known as the land of Jeremiah Culpepper." Perhaps James Harrison was his brother-in-law, as $20 was a very good price for 100 acres (Nash Co Deed Bk 16, p.346).

And William almost certainly had a brother Jeremiah. William and Jeremiah Culpepper sold land jointly in Feb 1821, to Gideon Bass on the south side of Turkey Creek (Deed Bk 10, p.233). Also, Jeremiah Culpepper sold land to William Culpepper in Oct 1841 (Deed Bk 17, p.303). It seems certain that this William and Jeremiah were the sons of the Jeremiah who died in 1800.

Also, by a process of elimination, Jeremiah and Patience were the only Culpepper couple in 1800 Nash county who had at least two sons born in the 1790's, if the 1800 census is reliable. Also, it seems probable that the later Jeremiah would be the son of the earlier one.

Finally, DNA testing has shown that Jeremiah Jr. and William C. Culpepper have the same genetic signature as James Culpepper except that they also share a unique mutation that must have occurred with their father Jeremiah Sr (son of James) who then passed it along to his sons.9,10

Original Message sent 20 Dec 2002 by Ken Hughey:
     I am trying to find a Sarah Cotton Culpepper, born 01/15/1780 (place unknown) who married a John Thomas, born 06/30/1769 (possibly in Scotland). These would be my wife's Great, great, great grandparents. They lived in the Old Darlington District of South Carolina. They had children named William, Theophilus, Cornelius, Sarah, Mae (or May), Catherine, Jemima, Isaac, John Junior, and James Henry. They later migrated to the Pike County area of Alabama where both passed away. Also, If you happen to find these folks, would you please check to find out where the "Cotton" comes from in Sarah's name.

From Ken Hughey, Sep 2007: Here's the information I have assembled on the John Thomas family of 1810 Old Darlington District. The dates are from censuses or tombstones.

John Thomas, Sr. born circa 1777 in Bertie (not documented) County, N.C. Died (documented) Pike County, Alabama 1849

Sarah ? (believed to be Culpepper) born circa 1882, Nash County, N.C. Died (documented 6-16-1855) in Pike County, Alabama

(1) John Thomas, Jr. B. 1802, Darlington, S.C.

(2) Mary Thomas B.1805, Darlington, S.C. Married James Craige

(3) Theophilus Thomas B. 5-09-1806, Darlington, S.C. D. 1865, Trenton, Smith Co., Ms. Married Effie Coker

(4)Catherine Thomas, B. 08-05-1817, Darlington, S.C. Died 07-23-1898, Pike County, Alabama. Married Henry Jordan

(5) Cornelius Cotton Thomas, B. 08-12-1820, Darlington, S.C. Died 01-01-1877 in Trenton, Smith County, Ms. Married Nancy Davis

(6) Delida Thomas, B. 03-16-1824 Darlington, S.C. (twin to Jemima) No data found for his death or marriage

(8) Isaac Jackson Thomas B. 02-07-1826, Darlington, S.C. Died 04-03-1885, Midway, Butler County, Al.,

(9) James Henry Thomas B. 01-07-1831, Troy, Pike County, Al. Died 10-16-1911, Shongelo, Smith Co., Ms. (this is my wife's line)

Response by Lew Griffin:
     In my opinion, your Sarah was almost certainly the Sally Culpepper listed in the will of James Culpepper, 1799, of Nash County, NC. We currently list her in our files with an estimated date of birth of 1778.
     Her brother James moved to Darlington District, SC, at an early date, and so it is not surprising to find her there as well. I suspect she met and married John Thomas in either Edgecombe or Nash County, NC, or in Darlington District. This was the only early Culpepper family in Darlington District. There were no Culpeppers in early Scotland.
     It looks like most of the names of the children probably come from the Thomas side of the family, with the exception of the son James Henry. If I'm correct, then Sarah's father was James, and she had brothers, James and Henry, as well. She probably descends from the early Henry Culpepper of Norfolk Co., VA.
     ... there was a Thomas family in early Edgecombe County, NC, where these Darlington Culpeppers were originally from. And the name Theophilus occurred in this family. A Theophilus Thomas in Edgecombe had a son John, for instance, who was probably in the right age range to have been yours. These Edgecombe Thomas's lived in the Toisnot Swamp area of Edgecombe, which latter became Wilson County.4

Marriage*7 February 1842 She married Archibald Rose at Nash Co., North Carolina, on 7 February 1842 at age 18.4 
Married Name7 February 1842  As of 7 February 1842, her married name was Rose. 
(Heir) Will22 September 1868 Henry, Mariah, Mary and Frances named as heir(s) in the will of William C. Culpepper at Nash Co., North Carolina, on 22 September 1868.5 
Death*February 1900 She died in February 1900 at age 76.6 
Biography* David Smith wrote on 9 Oct 2006:

My wife is Barbara Anne Britt and she is the great granddaughter of Mariah Elizabeth Culpepper b. Nash County, N.C., in 1823. My wife copied the records in a family bible some 50 years ago and has kept the record ever since. She does not know where the bible is to be found today. The following is the record she copied:

     Maria (sic) Rose the daughter of Wm & Elizabeth Culpepper was born 9th day of November 1823
     Mary Ann E Watson the daughter of Archibald and Maria Rose was born the 3d day of January 1842
     Martha Ann F Rose was born 28th day of September 1844
     Emily Jane Rose was born the 17th day of July 1846
     Lucy Ann B Rose was born the 12 day of May 1848
     John William Rose - Nov. 16, 1850
     Joshua Rose - April 2, 1854
     James Haywood Rose - Aug. 18, 1858
     Reuben Anders Rose - April 1, 1861

Note that Mary Ann E Rose (Watson) is listed by her married name. This means that the original document was not created until ca. 1860 at the earliest. Another document belonging to my wife is a 5 x 8 card with the same information on it in family tree form. However, a later added note has an arrow pointing to Mary Ann E Watson and states "Aunt Polly Ann's husband killed civ war"

Reuben Anders (some records say "Andrews") Rose was my wife's grandfather. A separate Rose Family Bible, now in the possession of my wife's cousin, Sylvia Rose (Mahoney) states that "Mrs. Archibald Rose died February 1900".

...I have more info on the descendants of Mariah Culpepper, if you would like.6
