(The census shows 2 males 20-30, but only one is known (Larkin). The other who might be assigned this slot is Jesse, but he was married and with several small children by 1840. There are also several individuals shown in this family tree (as of 12 May 2003) as children of Dickinson and Jane but who do not have an available slot in this census: William G., Trusannah, John Henry and Ella. All four of these appear in the 1850 census in Jane's HH.)11 
Death*after 1840 He died at Warren Co., Georgia, after 1840. 
Biography* Little is known about Dickinson Culpepper. In February 1809 he bought 100 acres on Hearts Creek from his brother Robert, with his father Daniel Culpepper and his brother William Culpepper as witnesses (Warren Co GA Deed Bk D-28).

No will or estate records for him have been found as yet, so the names of his children are based on circumstantial evidence and on the process of elimination. Perhaps his wife, who outlived him by a number of years, left an estate in Warren County. Since Dickinson's first name is also a last name, perhaps his mother or one of his grandmothers was a Dickinson by birth. None of his known sons or grandsons were named Dickinson, so the name apparently was not carried forward in the Culpepper family. No other Dickinson Culpepper has been found in census records from 1820 forward. 
Research note*31 May 2004 Estate records for Dickinson, if they could be found, might help establish the names of his children.

Tax records in Warren Co. GA might also be checked. 1849 and 1850 appear to the be earliest extant after 1840 (LDS Film 159189)
