Michael Hampton was shown as under age 18, in the militia of Montgomery County, Virginia on August 30, 1780, which could give him a year of birth around 1762. Michael Hampton was killed by Indians on the north frontier of Sumner County, Tennessee on November 29, 1794, along with John Lawrence and William Harris. See page 620 of the "Annals of Tennessee" by J.G.M. Ramsay, 1853.
Michael married Catherine Smith in Mercer Co. Ky in 1785. He also was working on making Ky. a state. This is found (I am told but have not seen)in the Va-Ky papers. Will look for those one day. So far I have not found a marriage or decendants for Adam either. - Roberta
