Biography From Shirley Culpepper Brooks: Actually, dad was in Spring, Harris, Texas at the time of his death.
He was living in a nursing home in Madisonville, Madison, Texas shortly before his death and the will was probated there for that reason. Dad and mom (Katherine) had moved to Madisonville a few months before we lost them. She to assisted living and dad to the nursing home there. The property in Centerville, Leon, Tx was not sold until after they were both gone. From 1946-1986 they lived in Houston, Harris, Texas. From there they moved to Centerville.

They met and married in Kerrville, Kerr, Texas while dad was on leave from the Navy. Dad was home to see his dad (Ralph Harold Culpepper, Sr) who was in the hospital for Tuberculosis, Legion Hospital, Kerr, Tx.
Mom was a waitress and he sat and drank coffee most of the day when she caught his eye. They were engaged in 24 hours, and married in 5 days. The marriage lasted 59 years, until mom's (Katherine) death.

Ralph Harold, his second wife Della, and my uncle George Warren all lived in Kerrville, Kerr at that time (1944-1945)
I know Warren went to school that year at Tivy High School, Kerrville, Kerr, Tx.
Prior to moving to Kerrville, they lived in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana.

Biography* From Shirley Brook, 16 January 2004:

Ralph left the United States in 1948 to study art in France on the GI Bill of Rights. He never returned to live in United States. Only returning to visit twice before his death. He had tickets for his next visit when he died from a sudden heart attack. His two brothers Bill and Warren went to Paris, France where he was buried. I met Uncle Ralph when he came home that first time in the mid 1980's. He was a kind, gentle man. Excited to see his family after the long years of absence. Welcomed home by all. Ralph became an avid correspondent with the family over the next couple of years. I am proud to have had the chance to get to know him. We miss him still today.

Excerpt from one of his early letters:

Paris 14 August 1954
Dear Katherine and Bill:

"In Switzerland a neighbor bought two paintings, paying most in painting materials, frames, etc." "I did two theater set decorations-which was moderately paid."
"Just before Christmas a Gallery here in Paris who had a picture of mine, sold it to Gene Tierney"

"In Saint Tropey I met the wife of he German Automobile man, OPEL, who bought a small painting, one of my best. She hasn't yet paid me all of the money. I wanted a reserve for later this fall."

"Here in Paris at the small hotel I went to upon arriving, the lady who owned it showed my work to another guest who bought a tiny painting and then she bought two herself. (that I did especially for her, in return for room rent.) I spent a week to contact a collector who likes my work and he and his wife bought a picture for 50,000fr."
Signed: Love to all Ralph
*********************
There are many mentions of sales of paintings and drawings in the letter. He must have painted many paintings over the years. I do not know how he signed his work, but some of what I have seen here, from the early years was signed R. Culpepper, or Ralph Culpepper.
*****************************************
The following is correspondence we received upon his death:

Copied from Telecopy message to Michelle Roturier MPEAA/Paris from S. Frederick Gronich: Dated 11/14/1998 on the death and burial of Ralph Culpepper, Jr.
Please convey my sincerest regrets to Ralph Culpepper's brothers that I cannot be there on this sad occasion. I have worked with Ralph for 30 years and learned to respect his unusual humanity and consideration for others-frequently through personal sacrifice. He was very unique in many ways and I shall personally miss him.


Letter from Motion Picture Export Association of American, Inc. 67, Rue De Miromesnil, 75008 Paris*
43 59 64 86
29 Nov 1988 To: Mr. Willie Caton Culpepper, Mr. George Warren Culpepper, Mrs. Carey Louise Culpepper Manire:
Excerpts:

"Needless to say, we were all very struck by Ralph's death. Although he lived a modest and informal life-style, those who knew him have always been aware of the fact that he was an intelligent, cultured and remarkably generous and self-sacrificing human being. Because of his gentleness and modesty, many of the museums and cultural institutions of Paris greatly respected his knowledge and personal contributions. You have every reason to remember and be proud of this side of his life and contributions. Kindest regards, S. Frederick Gronich"

Note*1780 It is not clear whether Sampson Culpepper son of Joseph & Martha or Sampson Culpepper of Norfolk Co., VA is referenced below, so this text has been included in the records of each of two likely Sampsons.

Grant's Fort
     Located in Bourbon County, near Fayette County line and was build in 1779 by Col. John Grand and Capt. William Ellis, the military leader of the Traveling Church, for the use of twenty or thirty families who had come to Bryan Station. A group of sixty Indians from Byrd's war party attacked it in June, 1780, and burned the fort without taking prisoners. Forty men from Bryan's went to their relief and found two men named Stucker and a woman named Mitchell killed. James Ingels, Jr., was born here in November 1779. The fort was rebuilt in 1784 but the Grant family sold to Ingels and moved away. The site is about 1 1/2 miles from Antioch Christian Church near the border of Fayette County. Timothy Peyton was shot by Indians about one-half mile away. James Stark carried him to the fort where he soon died. His name is preserved in "Peyton's Run."
     In a letter written by John Grant, founder of Grant's Station, dated April 24, 1780, to Col. John Todd, delegate at Harrodsburg, he told of those persons who at that time were living in the fort. A list of the names: "John Tamplin, John Jackson, John VanCleave, George Stucker, Samson Culpeper, Stufel Stucker, Philip Drake, Christopher Harris, Wm. VanCleave, Manoah Singleton, Thos. Gilbart, Wm. Liley, Wm. Loving, Robert Harras, Jas. Rowland, Josiah Underwood, Frederick Hunter, Wm. Morrason, James Gray, Henry Millar, Stephen Murphy, Michael Stucker, Esmond Lilley, George Stucker (son), John VanCleave (sons), Samson Hough, Wm. Ellis."
     There were six more at the station that he could not "properly call effective," and about seven he daily expected.

Regarding the presence of Sampson Culpepper in Kentucky, Lew Griffin wrote:
     Surprisingly, there is evidence supporting the presence of BOTH of the early Sampson Culpeppers in Kentucky around this time.
     We definitely know that Sampson, son of Joseph of Edgecombe, spent some time in Kentucky during the Revolutionary period. This is mentioned in an early biography of his son, Congressman John "the Baptist" Culpepper.
     But I also have record of a petition signed by "Virginians" in Kentucky, with Sampson Culpepper being one of the folks who signed. So this might indicate that Sampson Culpepper, son of Robert Culpepper, Jr. also spent some time in Kentucky.
     Or perhaps the Sampson from NC / GA still considered himself a Virginian.
     The two early Sampsons were first cousins.
     So Sampson, son of Joseph (Edgecombe NC) definitely took a look at Kentucky, didn't like it, and ended up in Georgia. Whether his first cousin, Sampson son Robert Jr., was ever in Kentucky, is a bit more speculative. If he was there, he did not stay, either. He died in Norfolk County, VA in the 1790's.5,6 
Birth of Son27 May 1785 His son Sampson Culpepper son of Sampson & Eleanor was born on 27 May 1785 at Anson Co., North Carolina

(From Sarah Murphy:

There is a second Muster Roll for 1794 but only Sampson Culpepper was listed.

Death*circa 1806 He died at Wilkinson Co., Georgia, circa 1806
Sampson is assumed to have died between 1805 and 1807 as his widow was able to enter the 1807 lottery. 
Biography* Sampson Culpepper was the son of Joseph Culpepper, and the grandson of Robert Culpepper of Norfolk Co, VA. He was probably born in Bertie County, NC about 1737. The area became Edgecombe County in 1741. Sampson was about eight years old when his father Joseph died unexpectedly in 1745. His mother, Martha Culpepper, was appointed his guardian, since he was under age 14. We know from his mother's will that he was the youngest son.

Sampson moved to Anson Co. NC with the rest of his family around 1753 or 1754. The Culpeppers appeared in deed records in Anson as early as July 1754. In Oct 1758, Sampson was granted 200 acres in Anson Co. on the S.W. side of Pee Dee River, joining the E. side of Gould's Fork of Brown Creek and both sides of the great fork of said Fork (NC Patent Book 16, p.260). Sampson was about aged 21 at the time, a young bachelor.

Sampson appears in a 1763 Tax List of Anson County, as do his brothers Joseph and John, and his cousins William and Robert. About 1764, Sampson married Eleanor Gilbert. The eldest child was born in 1765. In Mar 1767, Sampson Culpepper bought 62 acres from George Augustus Selwyn. The land was on Long Creek and the waters of Rocky River, and included Sampson's "own improvements," indicating he already lived there (Anson Deed Bk H1-129). In July 1776, Sampson sold the 200 acres he had acquired in 1758 to Patrick Boggan (Anson Deed Bk K, p.485).

Sampson Culpepper was probably a Patriot during the Revolutionary War, as indicated by one or more of the following Revolutionary War Pay Vouchers, for services rendered:

No. 847 - State of North Carolina, Auditors Office for the lower board of Salisbury District, 6th Sept 17_. This may certify that Sampson Culpepper exhibited his claim and was allowed Twenty-two Pounds, Five shillings and no Pence. /s/ John Ault, Stephen Miller.

No. 483 - State of North Carolina, Auditors Office for the Counties of Anson, Montgomery & Richmond. September 3rd 1782. This may certify that Sampson Culpepper exhibited his claim & was allowed Twenty-three Pounds Two Shillings no Pence. /s/ Stephen Mills, Thos. Chiles. Received the 23 d of April 1787 of John Richardson the above paid in full. /s/ Wm. (W) Culpepper. His mark.

No. 793. State of North Carolina, Auditors Office for the lower board of Salisbury District, 6th September 1782. This may certify that Sampson Culpepper exhibited his claim and was allowed Eight Shillings no Pence. /s/ John Auld, Thos Chiles.

This writer has photocopies of the above three pay vouchers, but not the exact references to their location in the NC Archives.

The following two vouchers are found in the book by Weynette Parks Haun, "North Carolina Revolutionary Army Accounts, Secretary of State, Treasurer's & Comptroller's Papers, Vol. V, Vol. VI, Part IV."

No. 953. S. Culpepper, found in Vol. V, book 178, which is "An accot. of Cloathing Currency and Specie Certificates sent to the Commissioners at New York by the Comptroller of Public Accounts of the State of North Carolina, May 1790. Note that vouchers of this description were for uniforms for soldiers in the Continental Line, the costs of which were reimbursed by the Federal Government in New York. So this is proof that a Sampson Culpepper served in the Continental line.

No. 1456. S. Culpepper, found in Vol. VI, book 24. This writer does not know the nature or purpose of this pay voucher.
.Note that one or more of these five vouchers may apply to another Sampson Culpepper, who was the son of this Sampson's brother John, and who was also in this area at this time. It is not clear, however, that this younger Sampson was old enough to have served. The signatures on all the vouchers need to be examined.

After the Revolutionary War, Sampson moved to Wilkes Co., GA., joining his brother Joseph who was already there. Sampson was there prior to Aug 1788, when he witnessed a deed of Elijah Clark (Wilkes Co. Deed Bk GG, p.94). He was listed as a Grand Juror in Wilkes Co. about 1789.

In Jul 1791, Sampson, now about 54 years old, was granted 200 acres in Washington Co. bounded on the northeast by John Culpepper (Register of Grants Bk. UUU, p. 596). Washington Co. was formed in 1784 from the Creek cession of November 1783.

Sampson and other Culpeppers were in Washington Co. at the time of the drawing for the 1805 Land Lottery. Sampson had two draws, both blank. In 1807 Laurens Co. was formed from Washington, and Sampson's land probably fell in Laurens County.

Sampson's wife, Eleanor entered the 1807 lottery, and she could not have done that unless she was a widow. Therefore, Sampson must have died after the 1805 but before the 1807 lottery.6

Beverly, July 5, 1838

Dear Brother:

I have the pleasure of informing you, that I and my friends in these regions are generally well. My children are scattered to different states: Benjamin, the eldest, is in Tennessee, on the Fork Deer River; he has a wife and seven or eight children, and is said to be doing well. --Nancy is a widow, with five children, and has removed to Sumter county, near you. John is living in Malborough District, South Carolina, and has six children he spends nearly all his time in preaching, and is considered a useful preacher. E.A. Culpeper, I am informed, went to Texas, and returned to Louisiana and has settled himself.

We have had good times in Anson, for several years. The Baptists have increased two or three hundred fold; they have ten framed Meeting Houses in Anson, and have moved on in great love and harmony, until of late; but an unfortunate division has taken place -- perhaps one fifth of the Baptists in North Carolina, have broken off from the rest, and will have no fellowship with any who hold with the Bible Society, Missionary Society, Sabbath School, or Temperance Society". This division, like the "East wind", has blasted some of our prospects. Few have joined them of late. The Bear Creek Associateion, in Montgomery, Anson, Rowan and Cabarrus, has ten churches. They have baptized but one person in the last year, and that was a negro woman, who lived and professed to have got religion near the Brown Creek Meeting House amongst us. They are really like Pharoah's [sic] lean kine, andcome "thin and blasted with the East wind." -- All the old preachers you know in the country and most of the young intelligent young ones, are on the Missionary or effort side, and your brother, William A. Morris, is amongst them. He and myself have a Temperance meeting yesterday at Brown Creek Meeting House; we had ninety members before, and seven joined yesterday, and I hope the cause of God and good morals are gaining though iniquity abounds, and the love of some is waxing cold.

We hear that a division has taken place among you, and it is reported that you are on the Anti-Missionary side. I desire to hope that it is not so, but ear that it is. I now desire to call your attention to a few facts. In 1790 or '92 a few Baptist preachers, John Rippon, John Ryland, Samuel Pearce, Andrew Fuller, and other sin England, set apart the first Monday evening in every month as a time of special prayer to God, to revive religion in their own souls and in the Churches, and send the Gospel to the Heather. In June 1793, they sent out John Thomas and William Carey to Hindoston, to preach to the Hindoos; and others have since followed and joined them. Claudius Buchanan, a young disciple of John Newton's and a preacher in the Church of England some years, went chaplain to the Indies; he there became acquainted with out Baptist brethren, and caught the Missionary flame, and travelled extensively in that country, and then returned to England, and preached and published his "Star in the East".

A few young Prebyterians or Congregationalists, in New England, read his "Star in the East", and caught the same flame, (call it wild-fire, or what you please), and in 1812, A. Judson, Samuel Newel, S. Hall, S. Nott, and Luther Rice, sailed for the Indies. Two of the, A. Judson, and Luther Rice became Baptists. Judson and his wife traveled to Burmah [sic], and Rice returned to American [sic] and travelled and spread the news; and in 1814, the Baptists met in Philadelphia to the number of perhaps thirty, including Baldwin, Furman, Staughton, and others, (more than two-thirds of whom are gone to reap their reward.) and formed a Missionary Society, and "The Baptist Board of Foreign Missions"; and have been from then till now sending out preachers and raising money to support them. In 1815, the Sandy Creek Association, the oldest in the State, and the third in the Union -- Philadelphia being the first and Charleston the second, and we the third; appointed Robert T. Daniel, corresponding Secretary to the Baptist Board of foreign Missions; John Culpeper, Messenger to the general meeting. In 1816, the newly formed Pee Dee Association adopted the same course and appointed J. Culpeper Corresponding Secretary to the Baptist Board of Foreign Missions, and Messenger to the general meeting. I have been travelling agent for the board some few years, and am well acquainted with the progress of the Missionary cause.

I, last April, went to Philadelphia, when nearly four hundred Baptists met and formed a bible Society. I am now old, and have spent the present year almost entirely in Anson. Our English and American brethren have sent out preachers to Hindoston, to Burmah, and elsewhere, and they have translated the Scriptures into about thirty languages, and they are now printing and circulating the Scriptures in many languages and preaching the Gospel amongst the Hindoos, Burmans, Chinese, Carens, Siamese and in many other nations in Europe, Asia, Africa, and America, and preachers are going to and fro. The use of Missionaries to do the work formerly done by land, require [sic] much time to spend in travelling and preaching, and abandoning the use of ardent spirits, enabled to raise money and spread the Gospel. The Missionary Baptists in America, raise the last year, for printing and distributing the Bible, $35,714.66; for Foreign Missions, more than $63,000; for Home Missions, more than $15,000; for Tracts, more than $10,000, and large sums for building Meeting Houses, Schools, and Colleges -- and as we can now travel by railroads, and steam boats, and ships, so rapidly, we hope the time is near "when the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea." Isa. xi ch. "And from the rising of the sun to the going down of the same, God's name shall be great amongst the gentiles; and when in every place incense shall be offered to his name". Mal. I ch. And now my dear Brother, in view of these things, let me say to you, if through the want of information on these subjects, you and any of your family have honestly opposed these benevolent plans, and thought you were doing God's service, recollect Saul of Tarsus, "Verily, thought he ought to do many things contrary to the name of Jesus". If you are on the Lord's side, persevere (for as much as your labor is not in vain in the Lord), for as sure as God is in heaven and his word is true, so sure the effort Baptists are doing God's work. As I never expect to see you again in time, but shall surely meet you at the bar of God; till then, I bid you an affectionate farewell.

Obituary25 Mar 1841 Death of the Rev. John Culpepper, Sen. -- We learn that this venerable Minister of the Gospel, of the Baptist denomination, died at Gum Branch, Darlington District, S. C., on the 16th ult. in the 76th year of his age. He was a native of Anson County, N. C. and his life has been a remarkably eventful one. --
Without the advantanges of Education, his natural vigor of intellect enabled him to acquit himself well in the very dissimilar capacities of Minister of the Gospel and Member of Congress and the State Legislature. He was several times elected to Congress from this District, till in 1830 he declined further political life, and has been assiduously engaged in his Ministerial duties ever since. In early life he distinguished himself in the Indian Wars in Georgia, and in all his life, what his judgment dictated, he did with his might. From the Fayetteville Observer.14 
Obituary* DEATH OF ELDER JOHN CULPEPER, SEN.

In a subsequent column will be found an obituary notice on the demise of this venerable and highly respected servant of Christ. To say that we have been shocked and pained by the intelligence thus imparted would be but a terrible expression of our feelings on the ??We had witnessed the decline in our aged brother's health and had heard of his more recent and growing infirmities, but we were not prepared this suddenly to receive the tidings of his death. Still, however, it is our duty to acquiesce to the dispensations of Providence, believing that what has thus been an occasion of regret to us must prove a source of unspeakable advantage to our departed brother.Our acquaintance with brother -- we should perhaps rather say -- father Culpeper, has been of comparatively recent origin. We believe the first time we ever saw him, was when our convention met at Reeves'(?) Chapel, perhaps in the year 1830(?) or 31(?). Since then our acquaintance with him has been intimate, and to us unusually pleasant. We never failed to meet him at our annual sessions, until last year, when our friend was absent on account of disease. We doubt if any member of our convention would have been more ?? than with Elder Culpeper. Sure we are that no one has been more ardently attached to our institution or has delivered a finer spirit while attending them or , considering his ability, has contributed more liberally to their support than our departed brother. It used to be a favorite saying of his, when he would find that his views on a particular point were not likely to be approved by his brethren - that if they would not go with him, he would be certain to go with them - meaning that there should be no lack of any cooperation on his part because his brethren and himself did not have to think alike. There is one aspect of the last days of our deceased brother, which cannot be looked at without regret, and which ought not to be looked at by our denomination in this state without self reproach. We allude to the melancholy fact, as has been reported to use, that he was entirely dependent on his friends for even the comforts of life. Strange that a minister of the gospel should spend a long life in the survice of the churches, and should find himself in old age without even a place to lay his head. Such however is the legitimate fruit of that doctrine still prevalent among our people - that our preachers should rely on the charities of the churches for a support - that, to receive a salary for preaching is to preach for money - and that, to demand a support while preaching as a just compensation for value received, is worse than Simony. Such doctrines are no doubt exceedingly palatable to the avaricious members of our churches, and serve admirably as a hobby for certain of our secular clergy to rind into popular favor, but they can never bring much prosperity to Zion, nor much glory to the head of the Curch. Of this all may be assured - doctrines, the legitimate tendency of which is to leave the poor old worn out minister without a place of his own, on which to lay his dying head, can never be of God, nor can its practice ever conduce to the extension of religion in the earth.15 
Biography1859 Elder Culpeper was born in Anson county, N.C. in A.D. 1764. His father's name was Samson Culpeper, a man of moderate means. John, his son, was in school only three months. After his marriage and the birth of four of his children, he spent four months reading Latin. This was all the schooling that he ever received. When young John was about twenty years of age, his father moved to Georgia. Here John soon became acquainted with Elder Silas Mercer. Under his ministry he embraced religion and was soon afterward baptized by him. He soon began to preach with an earnestness and success that have seldom been exceeded. He soon returned to N.C. and preached in the churches of the Sandy Creek Association, which then reached to Pee Dee river. Extensive revivals accompanied his preaching wherever he went. He continued these labors with undiminished zeal and effect for several years. In the meantime, his popularity became so great, that his misguided friends urged him to become a candidate for Congress, as the only means of preventing the reelection of the then incumbent, who was particularly distasteful to the voters in that part of the district. To this course unhappily he yielded; and most of his after-life was spent in politics. In Congress he obtained a distinguished reputation for consistence, firmness, and disinterested devotion to the interest of his country. During this time he continued to preach the true doctrine of the gospel, but it was with greatly diminished zeal and success. About ten or twelve years before his death, he retired from political life, and devoted himself to the ministry with considerable zeal and some success, but far short of his earlier laborsFor several years he was agent of the Baptist State Convention of N.C. He was a man of great energy of character, his motto was "wear out, but never rust out."Previous to the division of the Sandy Creek Baptist Association, Elder Culpeper was, for a number of years, one of the most efficient ministers of the association. Afterward, he was a leading minister in the Pee Dee Association. In the 76th year of his age, in the strong exercise of an unwavering faith, a the home of his son, Elder John Culpeper, jr., in Darlington District, S.C., Elder Culpeper died; and was buried in the grave-yard at Society Hill. A the head of his grave may be seen a plain but nice marble slab, with a suitable inscription. His son, John Culpeper, is now laboring in the ministry, in South Carolina, with real zeal and efficiency.16 
Biography* The following biography of John Culpepper appeared in the Dictionary of North Carolina Biography, by William S. Powell:

John Culpepper, Baptist clergyman and Federalist congressman, son of Sampson Culpepper, was born near Wadesboro in Anson County, in the area later made into Montgomery County.

Nothing is known of his personal life, although one reference indicates that he may have served in the Revolutionary War, perhaps in Georgia where he lived for a while before 1784. He said in 1820 that "he knew what it was to be a soldier himself, and to serve when a morsel of bread was a luxury."

He attended local schools and was ordained in the Sandy Creek Association some time prior to 1812. It is probable that he preached at Meadow Branch Church in Union County, where he acquired a reputation as a "great evangelist." By 1815 the number of Baptist congregations had increased, and the new Pee Dee Association, to which Culpepper belonged for the remainder of his life, was created. At the 1816 meeting of the Sandy Creek Association, he was the guest preacher, using as his text for the opening discourse Hebrews 4:16.

Unconcerned over the issue of separation of church and state, Culpepper ran for the General Assembly of North Carolina and was elected as one of the two Anson County representatives in 1801. His service was not remarkable; he favored the calling of a constitutional convention for revision of the state constitution, and he favored stricter laws to regulate gambling. On the last day of the session, however, he and two other clerical members were challenged by the House of Commons on the basis of having violated Section 31 of the constitution, which forbade practicing clergy to hold office in the General Assembly. His seat was thereupon declared vacant, he was awarded all his back pay, and a new election in Anson County was called.

This event did not discourage him, for in 1807 he ran for Congress as a Federalist against Duncan McFarland and won in a contested election. McFarland appealed to the House of Representatives, which, after taking testimony evidencing such irregularities as an insufficient number of judges and failure to administer proper oaths to election officials, declared the seat vacant but would not award it to McFarland. A new election returned Culpepper again, whereupon he took his seat and began the first of six terms in Congress (1807-9, 1813-17, 1819-21, 1823-25, 1827-29).

Philosophically, Culpepper was more nearly an Old Jeffersonian than a Federalist. As he himself stated, he "had always been independent enough to disregard precedents in his course, and he should continue to do so." He stood with the Federalists in opposition to the War of 1812, averring his willingness to support a defensive war but never a war "for the purpose of invasion of Canada." He voted against the Loan Bill of 1814 in a lengthy speech, referring to "this premature, this ill-advised, this miserably conducted war......"

Culpepper did not follow the nationalist surge that ensued at the close of the war. He voted against the charter of the second Bank of the United States and against the protective tariffs of 1816, 1824, and 1828. Although he initially supported an appropriation for roads and canals, by 1824 he also opposed these expenditures, on the grounds of invasion of states rights. He did not hesitate to vote for appropriations that would benefit the "little man," supporting pensions for all Revolutionary War soldiers, for instance, and salary increases for government clerks.

Although it is not known if he was a slave holder, Culpepper supported the institution. During the 1820 struggle over the admission of Missouri, he voted consistently for slavery in the new state but was willing to support its prohibition north of 36 degrees 30 minutes. Further, he opposed an authorization for the president to negotiate with foreign countries to abolish the African slave trade, and he also objected to the use of resolutions in the House as vehicles for abolitionist propaganda.

To some, the country preacher was good only for "log-rolling or corn shucking." Indeed, once the members of the House walked off the floor in the midst of a Culpepper speech. To others, he "was deemed a man of sound sense, but not brilliant, useful rather than showy." Not a wealthy man, he did not consider himself able to serve in Congress without adequate compensation. "My family are to be provided for, and I shall vote for the compensation I deem just, and use my wages to support myself, to pay my debts, to support my family, etc., just as I would the avails of my labor on my farm, or any where else...."

His socioeconomic status and his views are generally Jeffersonian, and it must remain a mystery why he called himself a Federalist. Following the end of his sixth term he retired; he died twelve years later, at the age of eighty, at the home of a son in Darlington County, SC. He was buried in the Welch Neck Church cemetery at Society Hill, SC.17
