Attended Valparaiso University, BA and MA at Univ of Alabama. Former Army wife, former Librarian, former Realtor, Mom of two, Grandma of three, step Grandma of four, and two greats. The summer of 1959 my wonderful paternal Grandma told me the names of her parents, her grandparents, and the name of the ship that brought her to Castle Garden. That started all the years of research, and I still love it.
I had limited adding my Hampton line back to my great grandfather Tandy Hooker Hampton and his siblings, who are all children of Ephraim S Hampton and Lemenda K Hampton, because of problems with the conflated Andrew Hamptons. However, I finally decided to add their correct links to their parents and sibings. Therefore they are now correctly linked to their grandparents, Andrew Hampton who lived in Granville County, North Carolina and his wife Sarah.
If anyone has used cousin Connie Gilbreath Belcher's book on John Hampton of Lawrence County Alabama, please be aware that the two Andrew Hamptons are conflated there into the one known as Col Andrew Hampton of Rutherford County.
I am twice a Hampton descendant. My 3rd great-grandfather was John David Hampton of Lawrence County, Alabama, via his son Ephraim S Hampton. My other 3rd great-grandfather was David Hampton of Rowan County NC and Oldham County KY, through his daughter Lemenda K Hampton. She married her cousin Ephraim S Hampton.
Though it has been stated that John David Hampton was a son of Ephraim Hampton and Lemender Harris, I have not seen reliable proof that he was. David Hampton was named as Ephraim's son in his will in Rowan County. Ephraim's will was also witnessed by a John Hampton, but this does not prove he was a son, or that he is the same person as John David Hampton. In addition, Ephraim also gave land to a John Hampton, who he named as a nephew.
This Ephraim Hampton was the son of Andrew Hampton of Virginia, and Granville County NC and his wife Sarah, who has NOT been proven to be a Kuykendall. The other known children of Andrew and Sarah were a daughter Hampton who married Joseph King, Ezekiel Hampton Sr 1737–1811, John Hampton the Loyalist Lieut Col 1745–1843, Joseph Hampton 1746–1803, and Zachariah Hampton 1750–1781.
Yes, there were TWO Andrew Hamptons. The other Andrew, known as Colonel Andrew of Rutherford County NC, was the one who married Catherine Hyder.
There has been much speculation as to the possible ancestral lines of these two Andrews back to the immigrant John Hampton, from Scotland to New Jersey. In addition, there are multiple Ephraims, Davids, and Johns as descendants, and multiple Lemander, Lemenda, Lamender, etc wives and daughters.
