Joe was the son of Addison and Mary Hampton from Virginia. He had siblings Danca, Allen, James, Robert, Sarah, Balis, and Nancy. During his life, he was a resident of Plain Township, and was born in Ross County, Ohio, November 25, 1825, and died March 26, 1895. He was married November 16, 1847, to miss Eliza J. Wilson, who was born in Mercer County, Pennsylvania, December 18, 1829, and after their marriage settled (in the fall of 1848) on the farm his widow now owns and occupies. Mr. Hampton was a carpenter by trade, and during the early years of his life followed that occupation. Ill health, however, compelled him to give up steady work and he removed to the farm, where he carried on contracting until the infirmities of increasing age forced him to abandon all labor. He was a kind husband and father, a good neighbor and a loyal citizen. In politics he was a Democrat. He was a Christian, and a firm believer in the Bible.
To Mr. and Mrs. Hampton seven children were born, as follows: Warren W., born May 29, 1850, is postmaster at Dunbridge, Wood County; he married miss Malinda Jackson, and they had five children – Maud, Bernice, James and Pearl, and Cora Viola, born July 23, 1890, died September 11, 1891. Cynthia, born November 5, 1851, is the wife of Adelbert Segar, and lives in Dunbridge, Ohio; they have seven children, namely: Electa (the wife of Joseph Kelly, and has two children – May and Everett), Joseph, Frank, Edna, Arthur, Lenora, and Alva. Cassius A., born May 20, 1853, married Ella Perrin, and has three sons: Edgar, Percy, and Donald; he is a merchant at Perrysburg, Ohio. John C., born June 26, 1856, is an engineer on the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, and resides at Garrett, Indiana; he married Ada Budd, and they have two children, Wade and Mildred. Emma, born October 7, 1858, is the wife of J. D. Killyen, and they reside with her mother on the home farm. Adele, born June 15, 1860, married Ralph Shay, and died April 20, 1885. Manley B.,born April 14, 1864, died July 10, 1875.
Mrs. Eliza Jane Hampton, the widow of Joseph, is a woman of superior intelligence and excellent business capacity. For several years she has carried on a country store for the Grange, finally purchasing the stock, and is now operating it for herself on her farm. She has been very successful in her enterprises, and deserves the highest esteem in which she is held by all who know her. Mrs. Hampton is the daughter of William and Rebecca McDowell Wilson.
