Did your Lewis Thornton Lampkins perhaps come out of Sherburne KY, and maybe have a sister or aunt Roada (sp?) nee Lampkins Collins, who married John Collins and had a son, Frank Collins, who lived in Mercer Co. MO, between about 1880 and 1894, when he died, leaving wife Sarah Ann [Sally] Lynam, and three surviving daughter (four others had died of same "fever and ague" as father Frank). One of three surviving daughters was my grandmother, Edith Hester Collins Andrews. My dad, Albert M. Andrews, was their ninth and youngest child. Any connection?
