Your cousin's name Annie Gray Hampton popped out at me. Did you know that
there was an old town in Meade County by the name of Grayhampton? It was
one of the many small places displaced when they built Fort Knox. It is on
Highway 60 and I can still remember when you could see the ruins of an old
building there.


Oh, I wanted to tell you who Cousin Annie was. Here is a short outline of
how she was connected. Her daughter, Catherine Barbour Hampton, who was "Coz
Kitty", moved to FL also.

Here is Annie's descendancy

I just found this in my notes on Annie:

Ushers at Annie & John's wedding were Messrs. Barbour GRAY and James DUGAN -
they were married at Crescent Hill Presbyterian by the Rev. W.H. Marquess

My memories of Annie are that she was a short little thing, but built
sturdily. She walked heavily and I used to marvel at how I could hear her
walking around in the upstairs of the house on Lake Elbert when she came to
visit. She was a "busy" person, always doing something, not content to sit,
like her cousin Jane, on the porch. They were close as sisters in many

When Jane Gray Balfour had to have surgery on her left leg at age 13, (about
1930) Jane took her to Louisville and they stayed at Annie and John Hampton's
house while mother had the surgery and recuperated. I believe that they were
there for most of the summer. I have at least one letter to them from
Granddaddy expressing his loneliness and how much he missed them all, while he
stayed back in Winter Haven to run his store.

There are some pictures of Jane, John and Annie during that summer at
Louisville, (when Mother was 13) playing around with a golf club and posing
while driving the ball. They looked as if they had a great time.

***** Lanier Harrison has checked this Social Security entry from Judy.  Lanier descends from Jesse Simeon Gray and Fannie Barbour who are buried at Cave Hill.  This Social Security entry must be from another Annie Hampton.  Lanier writes: 

"Annie was buried at Cave Hill Cemetery, Louisville, Jefferson, Kentucky next to her husband John Bryan Hampton in my family's plot there, on July 14, 1959. I have a copy of the plot page and a copy of the plot diagram from the cemetery. You might want to remove the Social Security Death Index info. I had the same from her for years, until I finally got my information from Cave Hill. I even found out that my grandfather is there -- I thought he was somewhere in Cook County, Illinois.

Heather Hurley [Hurley/Barbour/Taylor] just went over to Cave Hill Cemetery for me and took pictures. Anna "Annie" Gray Hampton's death date is chiseled in stone and it is 1959. "  (March 2009)
