My Grandmother Myrtle didn't talk much about her father, David Brooke Hampton - he moved his family from Pennsylvania to Illinois and then to Indiana. Our family is unsure where Grandma was born, as she sometimes said Pennsylvania and sometimes Illinois. Grandma told her children that her father was a patternmaker in the woolen mills and we think that at one time he was an innkeeper in Waterford Mills, (near Goshen) Indiana. When Grandma was about 7, he wanted to go back to Pennsylvania but her mother Sarah wouldn't go. So, David Hampton left his wife and 2 young children in Indiana and went back to Pennsylvania. I don't know if Grandma ever saw him again.
