I AM THE GRANDSON OF WILLIAM V. LAMPHIER AND MARY ELIZA (BLUE) LAMPHIER OF CROWN POINT, IN. HE WAS THE SON OF CATHERINE LAMPHIER-KNOTT-GROVE. HER SONS WERE; CHARLES F. LAMPHIER (WIFE MARTHA) WHO ALSO WAS THE GUARDIAN OF LYMAN LAMPHIER,HIS BROTHER, DUE TO LYMAN'S "IMPROVIDENCE", JAMES EDWARD LAMPHIER (WIFE MARY HELEN), WILLIAM V. (ABOVE),GEORGE LAMPHIER (WIFE BERTHA) AND DAUGHTER CORNELIA LAMPHIER McCOLLY (HUSBAND ARTHUR W.) MY MOTHER WAS CECIL, 9TH OF 12 CHILDREN OF WILLIAM AND MARY, BORN IN 1913. WILLIAM WAS THE CARETAKER OF THE CROWN POINT CEMETARY FOR MANY YEARS. MY MOTHER'S SIBLINGS WERE; GLADYS FALL, HELEN BALES, THEODORE LAMPHIER, PHOEBE COMBS, BERNICE McCOLLEY (WHO MARRIED HER COUSIN JOE-SON OF CORNELIA AND ARTHUR), DOROTHY BLANCHARD, CLARK LAMPHIER, RUTH REISBERG, HERB LAMPHIER, JOHN LAMPHIER AND AGNES LAMPHIER. I WAS TOLD BY MY MOTHER THAT WILLIAM'S GREAT GREAT GRANDFATHER HAD COME FROM FRANCE AS A VOYAGEUR, WORKING OFF HIS PASSAGE BY CARRYING GOODS TO HUDSON BAY. HE THERE TOOK A WIFE WHO WAS THE DAUGHTER OF ONE OF THE LOCAL CREE CHIEFS. MARY ELIZA BLUE (COUSIN TO BEN BLUE A VAUDEVILLIAN PERFORMER WHO MADE A FEW MOVIES AS WELL) WAS DECENDED FROM POTAWTOMI STOCK FROM THE NEBRASKA AREA. MARY WAS A MAIL ORDER BRIDE AND MY MOTHER SAID THAT SHE WAS DEVOTED TO THE MAN SHE WAS MARRIED TO FOR SO LONG. THEY PASSED AWAY IN THE EARLY FORTIES WITHIN A WEEK OF EACH OTHER. THE LAMPHIERS WEREN'T SO QUARRELSOME AS THEY WERE SECRETIVE. A LOT WENT ON WITH THAT FAMILY THAT NO ONE WILL EVER KNOW ABOUT. IT'S REALLY TOO BAD THAT THIS FORUM DIDN'T COME INTO EXISTENCE UNTIL AFTER MOST OF THE PRINCIPALS WHO COULD HAVE GIVEN US SOME ENLIGHTENMENT HAD ALL PASSED ON. SEARCH ON!
