U.S. States: North Carolina: Buncombe County
My gggrandfather was Turley Hampton, b. 1821 in Buncombe Co. m. Sabrina Parker also from Buncombe Co. They are on the census in Buncombe as living in the Reems Creek area, later Leicester. They later moved to Cherokee Co NC, after the Civil War. He had a brother named Tilman Hampton, B. 1823, married Sarah Shope, later a Cobb from SC. Tilman moved his family to Cherokee Co NC, then Union Co Ga, then to MO.
I am interested in hearing from anyone related to this line. I have other beliefs, but no hard data on Turley and Tilman's ancestry. I think their dad was the younger Micajah, son of Ahab, son of Micajah from Halifax Co VA. I see the possible connection to Lent Hampton, Ahab's youngest son, who moved his family to MO. I am also interested in any info on the wives and mothers.
Thank you for any info.
