Gregg Leo Lamping, Cincinnati, Kentucky / Ohio

Submitted by Edward 'Gregg' Lamping, March 3, 1997

Jennifer tells: My grandmother, Donaldine LAMPING, was a bit of a mistery. My Mom does not know much about her life or where her name came from. She is supposedly the only child of Donald Lamping. She was born in Northern California and we are told she was French. Donaldine spent most of her life in the San Francisco Bay Area of California.

Lampings in and near St.Louis, Missouri and in Montana

Submitted by Charles Darling, 10 dec 1996
Henry Francis is the main ancestor of most families in Missouri and all the Lamping families in Montana.
Charles Darling's mother was a Lamping. The descendants of Joseph Lamping, a son of Henry Francis have a reunion in or near St. Louis, once a year between Christmas and New Year. It is a large family, with many Lamping nameholders.
Henry Francis was born in Vechta in an area where a lot of other Lampings lived.
It shouldn't be difficult to find more about him with the use of the microfilms of the Vechta archives.
I am very glad with this submittance. A lot more data becomes available after the reunion. Check this site again later.

Charles Darling tells us the following about the family:
Henry Francis Lamping came to St. Louis from Germany in the 1870's
... Our clan in St. Louis remains in limited contact with the descendants of Fred Lamping (my grandfathers brother) most if which live in and around East Helena, Montana. Around 1910 Joseph, Fred and Aloys left St. Louis to settle the wild country of Montana, they first settles in Roy, Montana, a remote location. They had to travel 200 miles to receive their mail. The winters were unbearable and after about 4 or 5 years my grandmother insisted on returning to a more comportable life in St. Louis. ...

There is also a connection with the Eckhoff family. Henry Francis seems to have another daughter named Elizabeth Lamping, who lived in Lohne and was married to Frederick Eckhoff. She is not listed in the 'Darling docoments'
Mike Eckhoff maintains a web-site dedicated to the Eckhoff family. More information becomes available in 1997. A book with over 450 pages concerning the Eckhoff family has just been rediscovered. I hope there is some Lamping information in it as well. I'll keep you informed.
