Thomas Culpepper of Calvert Co., MD1

Male, #48217, (say 1780 - )
Birth*say 1780 He was born say 1780.1 
1810 Census*6 Aug 1810 Thomas was listed as the head of a family on the 1810 Census at Calvert Co., Maryland.1 
Research note* Since both Thomas Culpepper of Calvert Co., MD and Margaret Culpepper of Calvert Co., MD appear in the Calvert County census of 1810, they may be related in some way. 
War of 1812*between 1813 and 1814 He and John Culpepper of Calvert Co., MD between 1813 and 1814 served in the War of 1812 in the Maryland Militia, 31st Regiment (Hodgkin's and Taney's).2 
Research note That John Culpepper of Calvert Co., MD was the son of Daniel Culpepper Jr. [ID# 30] is speculative.

Since John Culpepper of Calvert Co., MD and Thomas Culpepper of Calvert Co., MD both (a) lived in the same county, (b) served in the same regiment of the Maryland Militia, and (c) were of similar ages, they could be brothers. However, Daniel, the presumed father of John, mentions son John, but not Thomas in his will of 1811.

It is also possible that John and/or Thomas are descendants of John Culpepper of Maryland

Records in Calvert Co. MD should be checked. Apparently, the FHL in SLC does not have much that would help. [L. W. G. 27 April 2004]
