Hartz). And from the same source, we find in February 1828, "Richard Heeth, Sr. applies for letters of administration on the estate of William Culpepper, late of said county, deceased," and later "In Warren County, at the late residence of William Culpepper, deceased, will be sold on the 29th of March next, all the personal property of said deceased. (Signed) Richard Heeth, Sr. Administrator."

William's children are known from an 1832 Guardian's Bond in Warren County. It is found in the Court of Ordinary Minutes, Book 1817 - 1833, Page 165. David Mims was appointed guardian of the orphans of William Culpepper, who were Amanda, Daniel, Manuel, and William. Witness was Thomas Gibson, and bondsmen were Solomon Wilder and Ishmael Broom. It was both dated and recorded on 4 December 1832 in Warren County, GA.
