Mother*Mary (?) (s 1736 - )

Birth*circa 1770 Thomas was born at Norfolk Co., Virginia, circa 1770. 
Will23 Apr 1775 Daniel, Robert, William, Sarah and Thomas named as heir(s) at Norfolk Co., Virginia, on 23 Apr 1775.1 
Marriage18 Mar 1791 He was the surety in the marriage of Sarah Culpepper to Caleb Hughes at Norfolk Co., Virginia, on 18 Mar 1791, affirming that there was no moral or legal reason why the couple could not be married.2

(7th Regiment (Magnien's), Virginia Militia.)4,5

1820 Census*7 Aug 1820 Thomas was listed as the head of a family on the 1820 Census at Norfolk Co., Virginia. Enumerated in census but otherwise not identified is 1 M10-16. This census record had only a surname of Culpepper and no given name. It has been assigned to Thomas because of the high degree of match..6 
Birth of Soncirca 1821 His son William Culpepper of Deep Creek, VA was born circa 1821 at Norfolk Co., Virginia
Birth of Soncirca 1823 His son Josiah Culpepper was born circa 1823 at Norfolk Co., Virginia

Death*1841 He died at Norfolk Co., Virginia, in 1841.8 
Research note*1 Jun 2004 That this Thomas was the son of Daniel seems likely, based on geography, naming conventions, etc. Since Thomas inherited land from his father Daniel, perhaps a study of Norfolk deeds would provide the final proof needed to connect Thomas to his father Daniel.

Male, #652, (circa 1782 - after 1830)
Father*Sampson Culpepper of Norfolk Co., VA (c 1736 - a 28 Mar 1793)
Mother*Wife of Sampson (?) (?) (s 1750 - )
DNA* Joseph has been proven by DNA and genealogical research to be a descendant of Robert Culpepper, Jr., who is a son of Robert Culpepper of Lower Norfolk, VA. 
Birth*circa 1782 Joseph was born at Norfolk Co., Virginia, circa 1782.2 
Census1782 He was/were probably enumerated in the census report at Norfolk Co., Virginia, in 1782. (Enumerated in the census but otherwise unaccounted for was 1 White..)3

Birth of Son25 Aug 1830 His son Joshua Culpepper was born on 25 Aug 1830 at Norfolk Co., Virginia
Death*after 1830 He died at Norfolk Co., Virginia, after 1830. 
Biography* Joseph was engaged in manufacturing, according to the 1820 census. He does not seem to have owned any land. By 1830 he seems to have been incapacitated, as his wife Margaret was listed as the head of household, even though he was apparently still living there. 
Research note* Joseph's ancestry is unproven, but DNA testing of Joseph's descendants reveals that they are descendants of Robert Culpepper Jr. Robert had nine sons, and of them, the most likely father of Jospeh P. Culpeppern is Sampson Culpepper. Robert Jr's sons William and James are ruled out because each of their descendants have unique DNA signatures.

Joseph has 162 known descendants. [L. W. G. 27 Apr 2004]
