Bio of Lewis Hampton in his own words:

16 Aug 1907

The writer was born in Gwinnett County, Georgia, June 1st 1821. My Father, Lewis Williams moved to North Georgia, among the indians. In 1841, I married to Miss Mary Camp of Walker County, Georgia. By this union there were born ten children: four boys and six girls. My wife died in 1863, during the war. I immediately, after her death, volunteered in the Rebel Army,in the 6th Georgia Cavalry Regiment, General Davidson's Division, Gen. Pegram's Brigade, under Col. John Hart's regiment,Captain N.C. Napier's Company. I was first Sergeant in the Company,and in 1864 was promoted to Orderly Sergeant until the close of the war. I am not ashamed of my war record; tried to obey my superior officers. I was paroled in Atlanta, Ga. in May 1865.

After the war I was married to Mrs Piety A Kirkland. By this union there were born six children:two boys and four girls. My Grandparents were both named John Williams. My Father's Father was an Englishman, my Mother's Father was a Welshman. Both Revolutionary Soldiers,both at the surrender of Lord Cornwallis.
