Early Culpepper Settlers in Missouri

Central Missouri (Before 1830 in Montgomery County)

Richardson Culpepper was born in Camden County, NC about 1800 and had relocated to Montgomery County, Missouri prior to 1830. He appears in the 1830, 1840 and 1850 censuses for Montgomery County. He also was granted land patents in Montgomery County in 1835, 1845 and 1857. His son John R. Culpepper is found in the 1900 census for Montgomery County, and John's widow Julia, continued to appear in the 1910 and 1920 Montgomery County censuses. More research is needed to determine if any descendants remain in the area.

Richardson was the son of Thomas Edward Culpepper of Norfolk, who was the descendant of three generations of Henry Culpeppers of Norfolk.

Southwestern Missouri (Circa 1861 in Newton County)

Ephraim Culpepper apparently moved to Newton County from Arkansas and secured a land patent in Newton County in 1861. He appears to have died shortly after that time (perhaps in the Civil War) and his children (Laura, age 15; Josephine, age 13; Peter, age 10; and Ephraim, age 8) are recorded in the 1870 Newton County census as being in the household of Howell Boydston and his wife Sarah, who was probably the widow of Ephraim. All of the children are reported to have been born in Arkansas. In the late 1800's, the Boydston's migrated from Joplin, MO, to Roseberry, Idaho, where Howell died. Ephraim Culpepper, Jr. was subsequently listed as the head of a family in the 1910 Census for Roseberry, Valley Co., ID.

Ephraim's ancestry and the present whereabouts of his descendants is currently unknown to Culpepper Connections.

South-Central Missouri (Circa 1889 in Shannon County, circa 1905 in Ozark County)

The first Culpepper family to settle in south-central Missouri appear to have been that of Joseph E. Culpepper (born abt. 1824 in Henry County, Tennessee). The initial move to Missouri from Tennessee by this branch of the family appeared to have occurred in 1889. By the early 1900's, ten of Joseph's twelve children were residing in Missouri.

They originally settled in Shannon County and over time spread out to neighboring Howell, Oregon, Ozark and Carter counties.

Today the Culpepper-surnamed descendants of Joseph E. Culpepper that have remained in the general area are mostly in Carter County.

Central Missouri (Circa 1898 in LaClede County)

John Butler Culpepper, born in Talbot County, Georgia in 1849 and a descendant of John and Nancy Gillespie Culpepper, resided with his family in LaClede County, Missouri for a few years around the turn of the century. His youngest son, also named John Butler, was born in Kentucky in June 1896, so the family's move to LaClede County was after the son's birth but prior to the 1900 Census. By the time of the 1910 census, they appear to have moved out of the state, but one of the sons, Marvin Myres Culpepper, appears in the 1920 census in Kansas City, Jackson County. Marvin died in Ouachita Parish, LA in 1927 and John Sr. died in Shelby County, Tennessee in 1937. No Culpepper descendants of this line are known to be in Missouri today.
