Francis Marion Hampton (1840-1899) & Nancy Jane Kinsel (1844-1913)

Frank & Nancy are Todd’s great great grandparents, the parents of his great grandmother Katherine P. Hampton.

Francis “Frank” Marion Hampton was born in 1840 in Ohio. His parents are Jeremiah Hampton (who fought in the War of 1812) and Pamelia Worster (whose father is said to be John Worster, who fought in the Revolutionary War, but I haven’t proven a connection.) You can see Jeremiah’s Find A Grave memorial here and Pamelia’s here.

Nancy Jane Kinsel was born on January 10, 1844 in Ohio. Her death record lists her father as George Kinsel. There’s a Nancy Kinsel born in 1844 in Ohio whose parents are John Kinsel and Sophena Daymude. I think it’s likely that her parents are John and Sophena, but I’m not sure. Maybe George/John Kinsel is one person. I’m still working on this.

On the 1850 US Census, 11-year-old Frank lived with parents Jeremiah, age 58, and Pamelia, age 50, in Hopewell, Ohio. Sisters Sarah, age 19, and Susan, age 5, also lived in the home. Jeremiah was a butcher.

On the 1860 US Census, 19-year-old Frank lived with the Thompson family in Normal, Illinois. They were farmers, and Frank was a farmer.

Francis and Nancy married on October 23, 1862 in McClean, Illinois.

On the 1870 US Census, Frank was 30 and Nancy was 26. They were farming in Normal, Illinois. Albert was 3 and Anna was 10 months.

On the 1880 US Census, Frank was 40 and Nancy was 36. Albert was 12, Anna was 10, and Alice was 5. They were farming in White Oak, Illinois.

Francis died on October 24, 1899 in Union County, Iowa. His Find A Grave memorial is here.

On the 1900 US Census, Nancy was 56 and widowed. She was farming in Grant, Iowa. Four of her children were at home: Albert, age 32; Alice, age 25; Kate, age 17; Grace, age 11.

On the 1910 US Census, Nancy was 66 and widowed. She lived with son Albert, age 42, and daughter Grace, age 21.

Nancy died on March 13, 1913 in Union, Iowa. Her Find A Grave memorial is here.
