|Birth: ||Jan. 24, 1883|
Maud E Hampton was born to Stephen K and Emeline Witwer Hampton on January 24, 1883, in Marshall County, Indiana. Maud had three brothers: William A. (1875), George W. (1877 - 1899), and Harry (1879).
The Hampton family was living in Pretty Lake, Marshall County, on their 80 acre farm at the time of Maud's birth. In the fall of 1895, Maud's mother, Emeline, began to have health problems which necessitated a move from the farm into Plymouth, Indiana. They built a small house in town and moved there. In September of the following year when Maud was thirteen, her mother died, leaving the care of the household to her at this young age.
Maud let herself out to service to the Hall family in town when she was 17.
At the age of 19, Maud Hampton married Albert J. Frank January 1, 1902, in Marshall, Indiana. They made their home in Marshall County.
In 1910, they were living in Plymouth, Indiana, and Harry's father, Stephen K. Hampton was living with them. In 1920, they were living with her Uncle Robert Braden in Elkhart, Indiana. In 1930, Maud and Albert were living in Chicago and had three lodgers. In 1940, they were still living in Chicago where Albert worked as a brakeman for the railroad.
Maud and Alfred had one daughter, Ruth H., born August 9, 1903, who married Harry Listenberger on March 21, 1920, in Elkhart County, Indiana. It was a second marriage for Ruth after a divorce.
Albert died in Chicago on December 3, 1943, and Maud did not remarry. She died in 1969 and was laid to rest beside Albert in Rice Cemetery in Elkhart, Indiana.
"Maud Hampton is an exemplary woman. Her mother died while she was yet quite a young girl and as she was the only daughter the household duties fell to her lot and she had to care for and do the housework which she did with a grace that was very becoming and neat. She is a highly respected, good, lovely woman; has a gracious air about her which shows her modest ways to be of a natural and not of cultivated achievement. It is her nature--her natural goodness." (The Marshall County Republican, Plymouth, Indiana)
