Hello, I have been researching James Richard Hampton for several years, along with many others....How are you connected, through his first wife Mary Elizabeth Hall, daughter of Issac ....or Elizabeth Sutherland, daughter of Thomas? My line follows the second wife Elisabeth, through their youngest son Edward....I would love to be able to exchange info with you if you are interested? While I do have some info, I don't know who James' parents were....The following is a Time Line I put together on him to help me figure where he was when....

Hi Claudia,
You are so kind to share your info. We are going out of town for almost a week, but I will see if I have anything that you don't already have here...although it is doubtful. My grandfather is Joel Sylvester ("tut" or possible Huffstutler) Hampton. We think he was possibly adopted by James Richard Hampton and so I sort of stopped researching there with the Hamptons and was looking to see if I could find any info that would give us clues. My mother (Joel's daughter) is still living and I would love to solve this situation while she is still with us. I was told by someone on Ancestry.com that the Hamptons were very nice people and one story they had indicated they adopted Joel, but no record of who the parents were, although likely one of the parents may have been a Hampton.

This isn't anything that will help you...but I will look into my records when we get home and share anything of interest. How are you related to James?

Thanks,
Carol Rose Gentry

I have never heard of an adoption, but according to my records, your Tut is the son of Robert Phillip Hampton, son of James Richard Hampton & Mary Elizabeth Hall Hampton. You need to email me direct. PRAIRIEAGLE@yahoo (Copy & Paste)
