Hampton E. Northup & Elizabeth Jane Dean

Hampton E. Northup & Elizabeth Jane Dean were married on October 18, 1807 in Gallia Co., OH. They had at least 8 children.. Hampton had been captured by the Indians when he was age 9, and he lived with the tribe until he was about age 23 before being returned to his parents about 1805. He retained some of their habits until death, and often entertained the family and friends by Indian dances, etc. He also is said to have returned to the Indians for awhile to care for the old squaw who mothered him. Hampton Northup is listed as a head of household on an 1808 tax list, and on the 1808, 1810 & 1820 censuses, all in Gallia Co., OH. Hampton died in 1826 in Gallia Co., OH. Elizabeth Jane Dean Northup remarried James C. McCall on December 22, 1829. James McCall was the widower of Hampton's sister Elizabeth Northup. Hampton's wife and sister were both named Elizabeth Jane, and they were also both named Elizabeth Jane Northup at the time of their marriage to James McCall, so this has led to some confusion. Gallia County record books list the marriage of James McCall to Elizabeth (Dean) Northup on December 22, 1829, but there is also a record (source?) that the tombstone of James' first wife Elizabeth Northup McCall (now illegible) had a death date for her of January 10, 1830, so more research is needed on that. The family is listed on the 1830 census of Harrison, Gallia Co., OH. James McCall had 12 children from his first marriage, and he and Elizabeth (Dean Northup McCall) had two more children, born in 1831 & 1833. There is a record dated July 21, 1831 appointing James McCall the guardian of Joseph, James, Stephen, Elenor, Sarah & Nancy Northup. On April Apr. 12, 1836 there is a land record for the sale of Sect. 13-5-15 which is Green Twp, Gallia Co., OH. This land had belonged to Hampton E. Northup of Huntington, who had bought it from his father Daniel Northup on Feb. 26, 1806. Elizabeth, widow of Hampton, is listed as being remarried to James McCall. Hampton's heirs are listed in age order, with each entitled to one-eighth part. The children listed were Polly, Anna who married Jesse Ingels, Joseph D., Jane, Stephen, Eleanor, Sarah, and Nancy Northup. Several of Hampton & Elizabeth's children emigrated from Ohio to LaSalle Co., IL sometime between 1833 to 1838, and Elizabeth went with them; James died in November 17, 1838, and I'm not sure if James died before, during, or after the move. There is an Elizabeth McCall listed as a head of household on the 1840 census of LaSalle Co., IL, living one household away from Thomas & Polly (Northup) Dixon. From Illinois State Marriage Records, Elizabeth married Lesley Kent on March 16, 1843 in LaSalle Co., Illinois. Lesley died or they divorced, because she was remarried to John Murphy on June 26, 1849 in LaSalle Co., IL. John & Elizabeth Murphy are listed on the 1850 census of Vermilion, LaSalle Co., IL. Elizabeth is listed as being age 60 when she was actually 66, but as her husband John was age 62 it may have been vanity on her part or census taker error. Her married daughter Polly Northup Dixon is living in Salisbury, LaSalle Co., IL and her married daughter Nancy Northup Argubright is living in Vermilion, LaSalle Co., IL that year. Elizabeth Jane Dean Northup McCall died in August 1859 in Vermilionville, LaSalle Co., IL.

The Children of Hampton T. Northup & Elizabeth Jane Dean:

Polly NorthupMary "Polly" Northup was born on September 24, 1808 in Gallia Co., OH. Her father is listed as head of a household on the 1808, 1810 & 1820 censuses of Gallia Co., OH. Polly's father died in 1826 when she was about age 18, and her mother remarried in August 1829 when she was about age 21. Polly married Thomas Dixon on April 29, 1830 in Gallia Co., Ohio, and they had 8 children. The family moved to Illinois sometime between 1833 to 1838 based on birthplaces of their children. They are listed on the 1840 census of LaSalle Co., IL one household away from Polly's mother Elizabeth McCall. The family is listed on the 1850 census of Salisbury, LaSalle Co., IL. Mary is listed with sons James & George in the household of married son Hampton Northup on the 1860 census of Eden, LaSalle Co., IL. Thomas is not listed with them in 1860. I find him listed as a laborer that year in , Cosumnes, ElDorado, California. Thomas and Mary are both listed on the 1870 census of Eden, LaSalle Co., IL. Dates on the IGI on Familysearch.com and also a posted Northup/Dixon genealogy both indicate that Thomas died on March 7, 1880, and Polly died a few hours later on March 8 while visiting Frank McCall in Oskaloosa, Iowa. The memorials posted for them on www.findagrave.com indicate that it was the reverse, and that Polly died the day before Thomas while they were visiting in Iowa, so this needs to be checked. Mary "Polly" Northup Dixon and her husband Thomas Dixon both died on March 7/8, 1880 while visiting Frank McCall in Oskaloosa, Mahaska, Iowa. They were returned to Illinois for burial, and were both buried in the same grave in Old Cedar Point Cemetery, Tonica, LaSalle Co., Illinois on March 13, 1880.
