History

Biography:

THE HAMPTON FAMILY:

Charles Gardiner Hampton: Charles Gardiner Hampton was born in Hamburg, New York, in 1842. He left the Brooks Collegiate Institute in Albany, New York, in 1861 to enlist as a private in Company H, 8th New York Cavalry. In May, 1862, at Winchester, Virginia, he was taken prisoner, sent to prison camps at Lynchburg and Belle Isle, Virginia, and was paroled in September 1862. He rejoined his company and by August 1863 had attained the rank of First Sergeant. He was discharged for promotion in September and commissioned a Second Lieutenant in Company D, 15th New York Cavalry in October 1863.

Hampton's command served with Pleasanton's cavalry in the Antietam campaign and with Gamble's brigade at Gettysburg. He was captured by Mosby's Confederate forces at Upperville, Virginia, in 1864 and spent the remainder of the war in Libby Prison, Richmond, Virginia. While incarcerated, he participated in a flag raising ceremony on July 4, 1864 which would become the topic of later speeches and writings. He was paroled in March 1865 and resigned from the army in May 1865 due to ill health.

After the war, Hampton moved to Brockport, New York, where he married Emma Stark in May 1868. They became the parents of two sons, Arthur and Charles, Jr. In 1870, he was appointed general western agent for the Boomer and Boschert Press Company of Syracuse, New York, and he moved his office to Detroit, Michigan, in 1872. Here he became actively involved with local veterans organizations and was elected Commander of the Detroit Post, No. 384 of the Grand Army of the Republic in 1902.

Charles Hampton died on October 19, 1917.

Emma Stark Hampton: Emma Stark Hampton, daughter of Israel Buell Stark and Caroline Fellows and great, great, great granddaughter of Revolutionary War hero John Stark, was born January 15, 1843 in Sweden, New York. She was educated at the Brockport Normal School and became a teacher in 1860. She taught school until 1867, married Charles Hampton in 1868 and moved to Detroit with him in 1872.

Because of her husband's involvement with the Grand Army of the Republic, Emma Hampton became involved with the Woman's Relief Corps (WRC). This organization was an outgrowth of the Civil War society called the Sanitary and Christian Commission and was established to aid needy soldiers and their families after the war. She was elected first president of the Fairbanks Post, WRC, in Detroit and in 1884 became the first president of the Department of Michigan WRC. In 1887, she was elected sixth national president of the organization.

In addition to her activities with the WRC, Emma Hampton was an active member of the Daughters of the American Revolution and other patriotic organizations until her death in 1925.

Arthur Stark Hampton: Arthur Hampton, first son of Charles and Emma Hampton, was a curator of the Detroit Historical Society and active in the Worldwide Baraca Sunday School for which he served as a national officer for eighteen years. He married Edith Seesee.

Charles Glazier. Hampton, Jr.: Charles G. Hampton Jr., second son of Charles and Emma Hampton, was a Detroit dentist. He graduated from the University of Michigan in 1900. He married Rachel Brearley, daughter of William H. Brearley, a Civil War veteran, journalist and part owner of The Detroit Journal and organizer of the American Newspaper Publishers Association.

THE STARK FAMILY:

Israel Buell Stark was born in 1805. He was a prominent minister in Brockport, New York, and served on the Christian Commission during the Civil War. He married Caroline Fellows in 1826 and at her death in 1848, married Evelyn Gardiner. He died in Brockport in 1889. Israel and Caroline Stark had six children: Milo, George, Cyrus, Sarah, Emma, Maurice and Carrie. Israel and Evelyn Stark had one child, Mary Stark, born in 1853. She married Eugene Borom in 1882 and they moved to Interlaken, New York. When Eugene died, she married Orrin Cook and remained in Interlaken until her death in 1917.

Milo L. Stark was born in 1836 in Brockport, New York. In 1862, he joined the 140th New York Volunteer Infantry and rose to the rank of Major. He was killed in 1864 during the Wilderness Campaign.

Maurice Stark was born in 1833 in Brockport, New York. He married Cynthia Maltby in 1858 and at her death, married Ada Baker in 1891. He died in 1911.

Collection Scope and Content Note

The Hampton Stark Family Papers consists of five major series, the papers of the Hampton family, the papers of the Stark family, a collection of Miscellaneous Papers (documents which were included with this collection but do not relate to either family), Family Photographs, and the Realia acquired by the Hamptons and the Starks. The overall collection contains Civil War correspondence, documents and diaries; family records, journals, and correspondence, genealogical information, and newspaper clippings, which reflect family and military life during and after the Civil War.

The Hampton Family papers include the papers of Charles, Emma, Charles Jr., and Arthur, as well as the Brearleys, Harry, Rachel, and William. The most important items in the Charles Gardiner Hampton series are the Civil War diaries and documents. The diaries cover his early life at Brooks Collegiate Institute, his enlistment, early prison confinement and release, battles of Bull Run, Middleburg and Gettysburg, capture and imprisonment at Libby Prison and his return to civilian life. His enlistment and discharge papers, promotion certificates and a listing of rations issued to him for one month are included. The veterans affairs folder contains a handwritten copy of the speech delivered to civic groups about the flag incident in Libby Prison, a printed copy of the speech (abridged) delivered before a California veterans group, and photographs of Captain Hamp H. Todd who provided the celebrated flag. The documents relating to Hampton business activities contain a letterpress book of correspondence relating to the sale of cider presses. The letters and documents relating to Myron H. Knapp are included here because Knapp worked for Hampton at some point in time. The newspaper clippings include obituaries which provide a good overview of Hampton's life and career.

The Emma Stark Hampton series contains family items such as a guest book, autograph album, a journal of inspirational words, and diaries and writings about the Woman's Relief Corps (WRC). The diaries are interesting because, while fragmented and covering only brief periods of time, they reflect Emma Hampton’s view of the changing world and her changing personality in addition to her activities in the WRC. The items in the WRC folder are from various Corps publications and numerous writings, including those of Emma Hampton, which reflect the interests of the organization. A large number of photographs of the major leaders of the movement may be found with her photographs. Additional information about the Corps can be found in the Hampton family correspondence series. The newspaper clippings included provide an overview of her life and importance to her community.

The major items in the Charles Glazier Hampton, Jr. papers are the extensive, early "Report On Asbestos" compiled in 1923.

The Hampton Family Correspondence includes a large number of Civil War letters. An extensive amount of correspondence written by Charles G. Hampton from Cuba in 1899 (only a few months after the end of the Spanish American War) reflects living conditions and social customs, the hostility toward the Americans, and the withdrawal of the troops of the 31st Michigan and the 6th Ohio from the island. This series also contains letters relating to Charles Hampton's involvement with the Grand Army of the Republic and Emma Hampton's correspondence relating to the WRC. Of special note are the letters signed by Clara Barton in 1886, General Mosby in 1901, and Maria Young Dongall and Clarissa Young Spencer (daughters of Brigham Young) in 1909. The series is arranged chronologically,

The Arthur Stark Hampton papers include a poem, canceled checks and a small account book.

William H. Brearley papers include a diary about his experiences with Company E, 17th Michigan Volunteers in Tennessee and Washington, D.C., 1864 1865. (Most of his papers are in the Detroit Public Library.)

Please note that the spelling of the name Stark is in question throughout this collection. Family members, printed sources and documents use the name Starks and Stark indiscriminately, often when related to the same person. For the sake of simplicity, Stark has been selected for use in this finding aid.

The Stark Family Papers features extensive genealogical information dating back to the English family roots. A detailed family tree beginning in 1685 and continuing through 1935, found in the collection, is invaluable to understanding the family relationships documented in the Hampton Stark collection. Also included with this material is a Stark Family history written by Israel Stark and a second copy transcribed by Emma Stark Hampton.

The Civil War papers found in this collection includes the diary of Milo L. Stark written near Falmouth, Virginia in 1863, and the diary of his father, Israel Buell Stark, written near Washington after Milo’s death in 1864. Also included (in Oversized folder) are the clothing and equipment records, muster rolls and ordinance reports for Milo’s "A" Company, 140th New York Volunteers, 1862 1863.

The Stark Family Correspondence includes family letters exchanged primarily between Israel, Milo, Maurice and Emma and describe family, social matters, and the war.

Also included is the eulogy is for Maurice Stark, read by J. K. Batchelder at the dedication of a monument in 1901, marking the passage of General John Stark and his troops in 1777 while enroute to the Battle of Bennington.

Mary Stark Cook’s papers include her last will and testament and a letter written in Chinese without a translation. No explanation is available as to why it was located with this material.

Miscellaneous Papers include documents which do not seem to relate to either the Hampton or the Stark families but which were included with the collection. Included here are Civil War and personal documents of Michigan men which may have been acquired as part of a larger collection of materials, the bulk of which did relate to the Hampton Stark families. Most of the men were born in New York and discharged in Michigan. Relationships are unclear but the items have been retained with this collection in the hopes of establishing connections to members of either family at some time in the future. Most of the documents are discharge papers, equipment and inspection reports, pension certificates, land deeds, and marriage certificates. A number of documents relate to Walter Durkee and to Romanzo M. Buck, both of Paw Paw, Michigan.

Family photographs include numerous family portraits, photographs of the Hampton homes on Blaine Avenue and on Woodward Avenue in Detroit (interior and exterior shots for both locations), and family poses. Of special interest is the photo of an early dentist office in 1900. Portraits of members of various branches of the extended families are included. Most of the photographs are identified but few are dated. Tintypes, daguerreotypes, postcards, and early positive prints are included.

The Realia in the collection includes a wooden rattle made by Charles Hampton in Libby Prison, two printing blocks (one with the likeness of Emma Hampton and one of the Hampton house in Detroit), a metal address plate with "Lt. Col. C. G. Hampton Co. D. 15th N.Y. Cav. Detroit, Mich.", a piece of wood addressed to C. G. Hampton, Detroit with a U.S. Grant stamp, a delegate badge from the 1888 Woman's Relief Corps convention, and Confederate money.
