Birth: Dec. 18, 1829
Mercer County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Mar. 18, 1903
Wood County
Ohio, USA

Eliza married Joseph on November 16, 1847. They had Warren, Cynthia, Cassius, John, Emma, Adele, and Manley. After Joseph's death, she carried on a country store for the Grange, finally purchasing the stock, and operating it for herself on her farm. She was very successful in her enterprises, and deserved the high esteem in which she is held by all who know her. Mrs. Hampton was the daughter of William and Rebecca McDowell Wilson. Her father was born May 3, 1802, near Mount Vernon, Ohio, but when a child his parents removed to Pennsylvania. He was there married, his wife being a native of Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania, born May 30, 1812. Soon after their marriage, they removed to Ohio in 1835, afterward returning to Pennsylvania to educate their children. They again came to Ohio and settled in Plain Township, when there were only three houses where the city of Bowling Green now stands. The mother of Mrs. Hampton died August 26, 1851, and the father married a second time, and moved to Defiance County, Ohio, where he died near Hicksville, August 26, 1887. He was a carpenter by trade and a member of the church. His parents were John and Mary Cox Wilson, the former of whom died in Iowa and the latter in Wood County.
