About Our Family Research
I haven't done a large amount of research. I am just really starting. My husband and I have been going the the Lampley Reunions. One in Kentucky, and one in Dickson, Tenn. It is so amazing to see all the Lampley's. To think that we all have such a great heritage, that goes so far back to the 1600's in Barbados. My parents were Bessie (Scronce) Lampley, and Earl Lampley. Actually his first name is Edna and his middle name was Earl. He hated that first name Edna, so he signed his name Earl E. Lampley. My grandmother Nettie (Brayfield) Lampley wanted a girl and that was the name she loved. So, that's how he got the name Edna. (Good thing he wasn't name Sue)!!
