My name is Beverly Lampley and my Dad's family comes from Dickson County, TN.My dad is William Leon Lampley and I think he was born in Burns or Dickson in 1924.He never spoke much about his family, so I thought I would do some digging around and see if I could find out any information.In particular I would love to know if his father, my Grandfather, Hardin Lafayette, had any siblings and what their names are.Also, who were his/their parents?Could he be related to the Carl or Collin Lafayette Lampley mentioned on these pages?
My Grandfather, Hardin Lafayette Lampley married Ada D. Pendergrass. They had 4 children, Zelma L. Lampley, Hazel Lampley, H.L. (Hardin Lafayette (II, I guess)) Lampley, and my dad, William Leon Lampley.Hardin and Ada are buried in a Dickson Co. cemetary...but where?
If any of you have any information on my Grandfather Hardin Lafayette and his Lampley ancestors I would love to share this with my family!
My dad's mother, Ada, died when he was only nine (think she was 49) and so my dad just never really spoke too much about the family, but I really want to know about them!
I'm living in London, England at the moment, but hail from Texas. All of the children moved to Texas at some point. Anyway, I'd love to tap your brain on some of this stuff, so if you can help, I'll look forward to an email or comments.
