Grant's Fort
     Located in Bourbon County, near Fayette County line and was build in 1779 by Col. John Grand and Capt. William Ellis, the military leader of the Traveling Church, for the use of twenty or thirty families who had come to Bryan Station. A group of sixty Indians from Byrd's war party attacked it in June, 1780, and burned the fort without taking prisoners. Forty men from Bryan's went to their relief and found two men named Stucker and a woman named Mitchell killed. James Ingels, Jr., was born here in November 1779. The fort was rebuilt in 1784 but the Grant family sold to Ingels and moved away. The site is about 1 1/2 miles from Antioch Christian Church near the border of Fayette County. Timothy Peyton was shot by Indians about one-half mile away. James Stark carried him to the fort where he soon died. His name is preserved in "Peyton's Run."
     In a letter written by John Grant, founder of Grant's Station, dated April 24, 1780, to Col. John Todd, delegate at Harrodsburg, he told of those persons who at that time were living in the fort. A list of the names: "John Tamplin, John Jackson, John VanCleave, George Stucker, Samson Culpeper, Stufel Stucker, Philip Drake, Christopher Harris, Wm. VanCleave, Manoah Singleton, Thos. Gilbart, Wm. Liley, Wm. Loving, Robert Harras, Jas. Rowland, Josiah Underwood, Frederick Hunter, Wm. Morrason, James Gray, Henry Millar, Stephen Murphy, Michael Stucker, Esmond Lilley, George Stucker (son), John VanCleave (sons), Samson Hough, Wm. Ellis."
     There were six more at the station that he could not "properly call effective," and about seven he daily expected.

Regarding the presence of Sampson Culpepper in Kentucky, Lew Griffin wrote:
     Surprisingly, there is evidence supporting the presence of BOTH of the early Sampson Culpeppers in Kentucky around this time.
     We definitely know that Sampson, son of Joseph of Edgecombe, spent some time in Kentucky during the Revolutionary period. This is mentioned in an early biography of his son, Congressman John "the Baptist" Culpepper.
     But I also have record of a petition signed by "Virginians" in Kentucky, with Sampson Culpepper being one of the folks who signed. So this might indicate that Sampson Culpepper, son of Robert Culpepper, Jr. also spent some time in Kentucky.
     Or perhaps the Sampson from NC / GA still considered himself a Virginian.
     The two early Sampsons were first cousins.
     So Sampson, son of Joseph (Edgecombe NC) definitely took a look at Kentucky, didn't like it, and ended up in Georgia. Whether his first cousin, Sampson son Robert Jr., was ever in Kentucky, is a bit more speculative. If he was there, he did not stay, either. He died in Norfolk County, VA in the 1790's.2,3 
Birth of Soncirca 1780 His son Benjamin Culpepper was born circa 1780 at Norfolk Co., Virginia
Tax List*1782 He was listed in a tax list at Portsmouth Parish, Norfolk Co., Virginia, in 1782.4 
Birth of Soncirca 1782 His son Joseph P. Culpepper was born circa 1782 at Norfolk Co., Virginia.5 
Census*1782 A census listed Sampson as head of household at Norfolk Co., Virginia, in 1782. Enumerated in the census but otherwise unaccounted for was 1 White..6 
Marriage28 Mar 1793 Sampson consented to the marriage of his daughter Nancy Culpepper to Maximillian Coats at Norfolk Co., Virginia, on 28 Mar 1793; Surety, Robert Benson.7 
Death*after 28 Mar 1793 He died at Norfolk Co., Virginia, after 28 Mar 1793
Sampson's daughter Nancy married in 1793, and he was listed as her father. 
Biography* 1769 - Sampson probably married about this time, assuming the people in his household in 1782 were his wife and five children.
1782 -- Sampson appears in a list of families on the south side of the Western Branch, with seven whites in his household.
1784 -- Sampson now has six whites in his household.
1790 -- Sampson still has six whites (census).
1793 -- Sampson gave consent for his daughter Nancy to marry Maximillian Coats. Sampson Sr. is listed in tax records in 1793 with two males over 16 in his household. Thereafter, the tax records just list "Sampson" and this is presumed to be Sampson Jr. 
Note*6 Mar 1797 Sampson and John Culpepper worked 13 days building barracks in Fort Stephens, Norfolk Co., Virginia.8
