Death*before 1820 He died at Norfolk Co., Virginia, before 1820.9 
Biography* In 1790, and in 1812 (see above), Willis Culpepper sold lots in Portsmouth which had originally been purchased by Henry Culpepper (husband of Christian Warren) years earlier, which suggests that Willis was most likely a son of this Henry and Christian. There is no record of Henry's sale of the lots to anyone.

It is possible that he sold them to Daniel Culpepper, son of Robert Jr., who owned an adjacent lot in Portsmouth, and that the deed was never recorded. In that case, Willis could have acquired the lots from Daniel, and could be the nephew of Daniel Culpepper. In that case he could be the Willis Culpepper mentioned as "grandson" in the will of Frances Llewellyn, 1775, Martin Co, NC (Martin Co. NC Will Book 1, p. 18). Willis is not mentioned in the will of either Henry or Henry's cousin Daniel.

This is per an order to sell land from the County Court sitting in Chancery, a suit of Edward N. Grant and wife Abby as plaintiffs and John Talbot and wife Fanny as defendants.

(This land had been purchased by Willis's father Henry.)6 
Research note*15 May 2004 Based on land records, Willis is considered a known son of Henry Culpepper and Frances Llewelling.

(Enumerated in the census but otherwise unaccounted for are 1 F0-5 and 1 F30-40.)6 
Research note*12 Jun 2004 Few records have been found as yet, on this Peter Culpepper. He is thought to have been the Peter Culpepper who appears in various deed records in Camden Co., NC in the early 1800's. (See the NC Archives at the Culpepper web site.) He seems to have owned land, and to have lived on the border between North Carolina and Virginia. So further records on him should be sought in both states.
.
This was the probably the Peter who was in the 1830 Norfolk Co. VA census, aged 30 to 40, with wife aged 20 to 30.
.
And this Peter was in the 1840 Norfork Co. VA census, aged 30 to 40, with wife aged 30 to 40. He had one daughter under five, and apparently, two sons, one over ten, and one under five.
.
From these two census records, it would seem that this Peter was born about 1800. This would certainly make him the right age to have been Peter O'Kelly Culpepper, and the father of Ephraim Culpepper.

Your help with this person will be appreciated. Contact Lew Griffin (see footnote for details).7

From Alice Doak (Mrs. Woodie Doak), March 2000:
.
Some people think Edith was a Cox. If she was the one I've located she was not the mother of all the children. Ref. Currituck Co. NC Will Bk 2, p. 21, Oct. 1792, 26 Mar. 1795 - William Miller. Wife: Daughters: Frances Miller, Uphanne Miller, EDE COX. Grandson: William Quidley. Wit: Johnathan Bright, Rebecker Kit, Aaron Bright.
[From Byron Johnson, we learn that this Ede Miller was probably the one who married Javan Cox and who moved to Tennessee.]
.
There were Hardys in the Norfolk Co. area near Backwoods. I thought
perhaps Edith might be a Hardy simply because of name Hardy [among decendants]. I haven't had an opportunity to check them as thoroughly as I'd like.
