Father*James I. J. Culpepper (3 Jun 1806 - 15 Oct 1846)
Mother*Martha Byne Blackstone (28 Sep 1814 - 23 Dec 1899)
DNA* William has been proven by DNA and genealogical research to be a descendant of Joseph Culpepper of Edgecombe Co., NC, who is a son of Robert Culpepper of Lower Norfolk, the son of Henry Culpepper of Lower Norfolk, VA. 
Research note* Our DNA project has led us to conclude that an unknown person (born 1861) was the son of an unidentified Culpepper, born 1830-1840, who in turn was the son of James I. J. and Martha Blackstone Culpepper.

Given the facts that William Culpepper enlisted for service in Co.
