Lamphear family of Westerly, RI, Hannaford, Searle

Iím looking for information on one of the Lamphear families of Westerly, RI.

My great grandmother was a Leila Lamphear born in 1889 in Westerly, RI (actually White Rock, RI to be more specific). Her parents were John H. (b. 1860-61) and Elizabeth Lamphear (I believe her maiden name was Hannaford). I believe Johnís father was a John G. Lamphear (b. 1816 in Westerly) who was married to an Almantha (I think her maiden name might have been Searle). They had several other children: Crosby, Phebe J, Eunice L, and Charles. They are listed in the 1850 census for Westerly, as well as the 1860 census for Stoningham, Conn. I think, but I am not certain, that John Gís mother was an Abby Lamphear. I was wondering if anyone has come across any additional information about this line of the Lamphear family prior to John G Lamphear.
I suspect they were in some way connected to the Lamphereís listed in the 1790 census for Westerly. I know there are people on this board with vast registries of Lamphears and Lampheres from Westerly. Any information would be appreciated.

Thanks
