Daughter of James, the first Broyhill
| Sally or Sary Broyhill was probably born in
Halifax or Pittsylvania County, Virginia around 1795. On Sept. 23,
1815, she married Isaiah Hampton in Wilkes County, North Carolina.
He may have been related to the Elisha Hampton, who married her sister
Francis. In 1976, Mrs. Loretta Bingham (284 N. 20th St.;
Battle Creek, Mich.) who is descended from Hamptons, wrote about Sally
and Isaiah, "they moved from Wilkes between 1830 and 1840, believed
to have gone with Broyhill relatives to Kentucky. Census of 1830
indicates that they had three sons and the daughter. Believed by 1850,
they were living in Green County Arkansas."
She says the 1850 Green County Census lists the
family of Isaiah Hampton, but it may not be the same one. Sally is
listed as age 48, thus born in 1802. Apparently she married at age
14. It also states that she was born in Kentucky. If so, this is a
surprise as there is no record of her parents living there.
Surprisingly the census abstract lists six children born between 1828
and 1857, two of them after 1850, and is doubtful that Sally had a child
at age 55. Perhaps the most interesting aspect of this is the
location: Green County, Arkansas. This is where the family of
Nathan Broyhill settled by 1850.
