Marriage*circa 1768 He married Hannah Adams at South Carolina circa 1768.

Biography* John Newman Oglethorpe seems a likely possibility to have been the grandfather of John Culpepper, since he was the only Oglethorpe living in geographic proximity to the Culpeppers in the 1770's.
      Researcher Janet Biondo has found our earliest references to date on John Newman Oglethorpe. In 1738, in the South Carolina Gazette:
OGLETHORPE, Newman (address unknown), Doctor................................................ Local News Article, 01/19/1738 Charlestown Jan. 26
      We hear that at Mr. William Flud's at the Sign of the Harp and Crown, is held a Lodge of the ancient and honourable Society of Free and Accepted Masons, belonging to the Lodge of St. John, Doct. Newman Oglethorpe being chosen Master.
OGLETHORPE, ??? (address unknown), Doctor.................................................... Financial Notice, 11/08/1751, 11/13/1751, 11/18/1751 Article Subjects: Financial Affairs, Bonds & Notes, and Loans and Money.
      Doct. Oglethorpe (in order to satisfy his creditors) desires every person that has not lately settled his or her accompt to his satisfaction, to do it before the first of January next, after which day he is determined to sue every person who pays not a due regard hereto.
OGLETHORP, ??? (King's Tree, SC), Doctor..................................................... General Advertisement, 11/05/1753, 11/16/1753, 11/20/1753 Article Subjects: Auctions, Real Estate, and Law Enforcement.
      TO BE SOLD for ready money, at public vendue, in Charles-Town, on tuesday, the 4th of December next, a house and lot in the township of Williamsburgh, at the King's-Tree, lately belonging to ___?___ Jameson deceased, seized on execution; being the place now or late possessed by Doctor Oglethorp.
      We next find John Newman Oglethorpe in Rowan County, NC, where he was described as a "chirurgeon" or surgeon. He owned land along Abbott's Creek in that portion of Rowan County lying east of the Yadkin River. In 1755 he purchased two town lots in the north square of Salisbury, apparently for speculative reasons (from Carolina Cradle by Robert W. Ramsey, p. 159).
      No records have yet been found for John Newman Oglethorpe between 1755 and 1764, but at some point during that period of time he returned to South Carolina, whether to Charleston, or to Camden District, is not certain.
      Craven Co. SC, 15 May 1764, Hardyrice Jernigan and Needham Jernigan, of Craven Co., to Joseph Kershaw & Co., merchants, of Pine Tree Hill, for L 595:2:5 currency, 3 Negroes belonging to HardyRice Jernigan, & 200 ac. on Jumping Gully conveyed to Needham Jernigan by James McGirt. Date of redemption: 1 July next. Witnesses: John Chestnut (merchant), Ely Kershaw. Before John Newman Oglethorpe, J.P. Entered in Secretary's Book & p. 257 on 25 May 1765 by George Johnston, Dep. Sec. Recorded 26 Oct 1765 by Fenwicke Bull, Register.
      By 1765, John Newman Oglethorpe was in Camden, SC, where a deed was witnessed in his presence as a Justice of the Peace (SC Deed Bk E-3, p.186, recorded 21 Oct 1765).
      On another deed recorded that same day, Robert Milhous, Hannah Oglethorpe and Thomas Oglethorpe witnessed a deed with John Newman Oglethorpe as Justice of the Peace (SC Deed Bk E-3, p. 192) .
      The next day Robert Milhous, Thomas Oglethorpe, and Samuel Wyly witnessed another deed between the same parties, Samuel Gibson and Isaac Ross, with John Newman Oglethorpe as J.P. (SC Deed Bk E-3, p. 194). The land in these deeds was on the Wateree River, which is near Camden.
      The Hannah Oglethorpe, mentioned above, was John N. Oglethorpe's wife. On two occasions in 1768, Thomas Oglethorpe was reimbursed by the South Carolina Commons House of Assembly for transporting a prisoner to jail (Citizens and Immigrants--South Carolina, 1768, by Mary B. Warren). So perhaps he was the son of John N., and was about 16 to 20 years old in 1768.
      John Newman Oglethorpe was a Presbyterian, which displeased the itinerant Anglican minister, Charles Woodmason. On Sunday, August 7, 1768, he wrote: "And yet there is a Magistrate here -- but he is a Presbyterian -- So are these Wretches. Instead of this Magistrate punishing these worthless Sinners he protects them-- and he had the Assurance to write to me to make them Satisfaction for my Admonitions to them (they not being of my Church he said) or he should indite me for an Assault--This dirty fellow I must report to the Governor and Council: How can Ministers suppress Vice, thus openly countenanc'd and protected?..." But elsewhere in his writings Woodmason was kinder: "There's Mr. Oglethorpe, there he sits, God bless Him, I say it in his face, He's a Jewel of a Man, and strives to compose Peoples Janglings all he can, as far as he knows and no Man can do more--and yet very often instead of being prais'd and Esteem'd for admonishing and reproving offenders against the Laws He is often hiss'd and hooted at When by St. Patrick would he exert his Authorityship properly, He might commit them to the stocks, or bind them over to their Good Behavior...." These quotes are from Charles Woodmason, The Carolina Backcountry on the Eve of the Revolution, edited by Richard J. Hooker.
