The Campion / Kempster Family

Updated January 21, 2001

Check out our Website for information on the "modern" family goings-on:

I am researching multiple branches of my ancestors from Germany, France, England, Scotland, and Colonial U.S. Here are some of the names and places:

Johann(es) Lehr (Otterstadt, Germany)
Oliver P. Brooks (New Hampshire, USA)
Helen Mar Sanders (said to be descended from a sibling? of Daniel Boone)
Thomas Kempster (Windsor, Bucks, England)
John Vellum (England)
Bonas (Alsace, France)
Dapogny (Cher, France)
John Kilby Smith (Captain in Continental Army)
Lauriston Chamberlain (Civil War veteran, Principal Musician and Company Clerk, 19th Maine Volunteers)
... and many more!

I would love to track down distant modern day cousins. I've lived in Germany and speak German, and so am particularly interested in those branches.

Any information would be appreciated. I am also willing to share the information that I have. Check out the file I've uploaded here.
