Thomas & Mary V. are listed on the 1930 census of Blue, Jackson Co., MO. On all censuses from 1880 on Mary's parents are listed as father born TN & mother born MO - this does not match what I have for birth places of her parents (I have father born IL & mother born TN). As her siblings are living with her in 1880 I think it is the right Mary Hampton - I can't explain why the birth places do not match as I feel I have the correct birthplaces for her parents. Thomas Hampton died in 1937 in Independence, Jackson, Missouri. Daughter Nellie (Hampton) Shelton gave the information on his death certificate, and stated that his wife was named Mary V. Hampton. Mary Vina Phillips Hampton died on December 25, 1947 at the State Hospital in Fulton, Callaway, Missouri. Her residence on her death certificate is listed as being in Independence, Jackson, Missouri.
