John's prior death is implied in a notation in the 1647 inventory of Henry Pedenden's estate. Thus, he must have died after the hearing on 10 Feb 1646 but before the Pedenden inventory in 1647:
"Two books belonging to the estate of John Culpepper decd, and now in the possession of Mary Peddenden Widow (friend and neighbor of Mrs. Graves), namely one Bible and Practice of Piety..2

Biography*3 September 1955Mary Bagley Ames, unmarried daughter of Benjamin Franklin Ames, Jr., and long time Portsmouth school teacher wrote the 'History of the Family of John Ames' in the 1950s. She organized several reunions of this family in Nansemond county. She made a mistake in making John (1796) a direct descendant of Levin, but if she did not go into the details, I can see how it would be easy to make this mistake. She did not have access to Levi Dow Ames' family bible which stated that John was the son of Levi Ames. (Statement of William Old, 12/23/2022).2,3 
Death*14 November 1970She died on 14 November 1970 at Portsmouth City, VA, at age 77.1 
Burial*Mary was buried at Cedar Hill Cemetery, Suffolk City, Suffolk Co, VA.1
