Elisha HAMPTON b. August 25, 1792 d.1860s. He married Lydia MERRITT in Stokes County on about July 22, 1815. A bond of marriage was recorded on that date and was witnessed by Samuel Frost. Sometime after 1822, they moved to Claiborne Co., TN with their eldest children.In 1830 and 1840, he was living in Claiborne Co., TN, while in 1850 and 1860, he was living in Campbell Co., TN. I am not sure if they moved or if county changed boundary. They had twelve children:Elizabeth "Betsy" Hampton b. 5/12/1816 married David F. ROGERS; Sarah "Sally" Hampton b. 2/4/1820 m. Silas INGRAM; Reuben Rogers Hampton b. 4/18/1822 m. Cynthia Ellen REEVES; Mack Hampton; Rebecca Hampton b. 1824 m. __ MARDEN; Mahala Touresel Hampton b. 1828 m. Isaac FORD; Amy Hampton b. 1830 m. William WALKER; William Hampton b. 1834; George Hampton b. 1834 m. Lucinda WOODWARD and then Julia PETREE; Harriette Hampton b. 1838 m. David R. BRUMMET; Thinza J./Alsie Jane Hampton b. ca. 1841 m. William HUTSON; Henry Hampton b. ca. 1844 m. Mary Jane MALECOTE. Three of their daughters, Sally, Amy R., and Thinza, moved with their husbands and children to Page Co., Iowa. Sally went in 1857, but likely all three families traveled together in a caravan. In 1860, son John Hampton also moved north, but to Indiana. Later he joined his sisters| families in Page Co., Iowa for a few years, before moving on to California.I have some of the next generation, but would like to contact the descendants of any of these children. I am also trying to find the parents of Elisha HAMPTON
