Late Fall 2000, Wampler/Wampfler Genealogy Newsletter
Last update: 8/4/'02

Section 1.8.a.8


With this newsletter the Wampler/Wamplfler Genealogy Web site contains data on 3257 individuals with the WAMPLER or WAMPFLER surname and on 1623 of their spouses. There are 1100 surnames represented in the database. The index to the individuals with the Wampler/Wampfler surname and the index to the spouse surnames both give direct access to the database entries for each individual. APPOLOGIES AGAIN...

As seems to be my habit, I've been very slow in responding to those of you who have sent in information and requests. Each contribution IS greatly appreciated. My only excuse the slow response is a funny one, I retired! This, of course, should have given me more time to answer e-mail and work on the web site, but...


After a long time receiving much help and data concerning the story of Eve WAMPLER, I've posted an update and several e-mail messages and other support information. These include:

The Puzzle of Eva Wampler, Revisited

Eve's Story from J. Derald Morgan

Misc. Records concerning Eve and Henry Kinsey family from John MacPhee

A summary of land records concerning Henry Kinsey from John MacPhee

A note concerning Jacob Wolf's (husband of Eve's daughter) military service from John MacPhee

Data on several different Henry Kinseys from David Kinzie

Transcript of the Will of Peter Wampler (1792)

Transcript of the Will of Barbara Wampler (1800)

Marguerite Stetson sent us copies of the E.V. Wampler notes and family tree that are central to The Puzzle of Daniel Wampler. This page has been updated and the data she provided has been linked in.

Central characters in the branch of Wamplers originating with Hans Peter Jr. and both of the Puzzles discussed above are the Peter Wamplers of colonial times. Several miscellaneous pieces of information have come to our attention that make a bit more sense of this puzzle. The new page "The Tracks of Peter Wampler" discusses and tabulates the various records we have in the 1740-1800 period. This page also includes some speculation on the lifetime of Hans Peter Jr.
