Notes for ROWLAND HAMPTON SR.: THE EARLY HISTORY OF SULLIVAN TOWNSHIP (PUBLISHED ABOUT 1880) Jones and Roland (Rowland) Hampton, Kentuckians, settled at an early date in Sullivan Township on section 29. The former, Jones Hampton, now lives at Hampton's station, from whom it received its name. Edward Minor, James Hudson, Jefferson Hudson, James M. De Jernett, T.O. Brown, R.W. Payne, Ezekiel Sharp, and a few others, arrived here before 1835. THE CITY OF SULLIVAN At a meeting of the county commissioners, R.B. Ewing, A.H. Kellar and Andrew Scott, held in March, 1845, at the residence of Dr. William Kellar, it was agreed that the capital of the county of Moultrie should be called Sullivan, thereby connecting the two names which bear historical relations to each other. (Fort Moultrie was a fortification constructed by Col. William Moultrie, {afterwards a major-general} on Sullivan’s Island, at the mouth of Charleston harbor, where a victory was gained, June 28th, 1776, by the South Carolina troops under Col. Moultrie over a British fleet commanded by Sir Peter Parker. The city was named from this Island). Owen Scarny, R.T. Hampton, Thomas Randall and Andrew Scott erected dwellings and settled here late in the summer and fall of 1845.

The 1840 census lists Three Hampton families living in what was then Shelby County, later to become Sullivan Township, Moultry County. The Thomas Hampton household listed 2 males under 5, 1 between 5 & 10, 1 between 30 & 40, 1 female between 10 & 15 and 1 between 30 & 40.

The Jones Hampton household listed 2 males under 5, 2 between 5 & 10, 1 between 20 & 30, 1 female under 5 and 1 between 20 & 30. The three Brothers families are listed on the same page.
