Hampton Lineage- A slightly different line begins with Nicholas Hampton, and carries forward.
Hampton History - This is a compilation of all obituaries and other small articles about members of the Hampton family that have been tracked down on the Internet, mostly.
Ben Hampton - This is the record of an interview with Ben's daughter Phoebe, done when he was 85 years old, as he looks back over his life. It is very interesting!
Pearl Hampton - This is the record of an interview done with Pearl Hampton in the 1930's, when Oklahoma's Pioneer Papers were started. In these, a transcript of the interview was done and at a later date these were put on the Internet. Pearl Hampton was a niece of Ben Hampton, my great-great grandfather, and Lucinda Hampton Burk's father. Pearl's interview was done by her son, John B. Mann, and a couple of years ago I was contacted by John, who then put me in touch with his sister-in-law, Claudia Mann, who had some of the information from Pearl, and the family. Claudia and her husband had moved back to Oklahoma, to Pearl's ranch, to help take care of her when she got older, and lived with her for the next 10 years before she died. They are still living there, and have sent me some great photos of their family and other information in their possession. Claudia made a copy of Pearl's line of descent that Pearl had done, and sent that to me, too, and I will get that up and post it on here, also.
I haven't compared it yet to these lines that we already have up. If they all blend well I will add her information to the line as is. If not, I'll have to see where the discrepancies lie, and why, which may be the case, because Pearl goes back further, and takes in several other lines of descent. I hope to get the bare bones of it online with this update, and then do further research on them. It's quite interesting.
Note: This Hampton line holds one of the great mysteries of our family. I will tell you what family verbal history declares:
My great-grandmother, Lucinda Hampton Burks, said that her mother was Charlotte Folsom Hampton, and her father was Ben Hampton. There are two documents, the Choctaw Rolls on which they are listed as parents, and the census, written by hand, to support that.
She said that her mother died very young, when she was just a few years old. Her father, Ben Hampton, took her to an unmarried sister of Charlotte's, Sarah Folsom, and told her he could not care for the child, and he asked her to take her. Lucinda did not see him again until she was 18 years old, when he came to see her. By this time she was bitter because he had not come sooner, and refused to see him. He never came again. Later in life she planned to see him again, but he died before she was able to do that. There are no birth records for Lucinda, no marriage records have been found for Charlotte and Ben, and he does not mention her, or Lucinda, in anything we've found published, so far. Shortly after, Ben remarried and had several other children, including another daughter, Phoebe. It may be that they married in a Choctaw marriage, or were married where there were no records made, or he may have destroyed the records after her death... or, they may not have had a formal marriage. We simply don't know. If anyone out there has any records that could clear up this mystery, however, please contact me.
