William G. Culpepper

Male, #5038, (Jun 1828 - 1900)
Father*Dickinson Culpepper of Warren Co., GA (c 1786 - a 1840)
Mother*Frances Wynn (c 1791 - a 1 Jun 1850)
Extinct Surname?* The family branch headed by William G. Culpepper is believed to have no living male descendants with the Culpepper surname. If you know otherwise, please contact Lew Griffin using the link at the bottom of this page. 
Birth*Jun 1828 William was born at Warren Co., Georgia, in Jun 1828. 
1850 Census1 Jun 1850 Parmelia, Trusannah, William, John, Ella, Wesley, Buler and Robert listed as a household member living with William T. Huskey on the 1850 Census on 1 Jun 1850 at Warren Co., Georgia.
(The baby Robert Culpepper shown in this household by the census is otherwise unaccounted for. It seems likely that Ella or Trusannah were not Culpeppers at birth but married William or John, and Robert was the son of this couple. It should also be noted that no girls appeared in Dickinson's HH in 1840 as age 5-10 (which would have been Ella's age bracket), and only 1 girl appeared as age 10-15 (but both Frances and Trusannah were in this bracket). Thus, it might best be assumed that both Ella and Trusannah were born to other parents and married Culpeppers. Given the relative ages, it seems most likely that Trusannah married William and Ella married John. Further, as they are the older couple, Trusannah and William are probably the parents of Robert. However, both John and William married other wives in the 1850's, so if either was the father of Robert and the husband of Trusannah or Ella, it appears that their first wife and child had both died within a few years.

Further complicating the matter, in the 1840 census their were no boys under the age of 15 in Dickinson's HH. Therefore, it would appear unlikely that either William or John were the children of Dickinson.)1
