My name is Kevin Hamp (Waterford, Michigan, USA), and my information trail ends with Benjamin Hamp, born in Kent, 1845. It says he was an orphan, but I noticed a Benjamin Hamp on this thread, possibly related to Joseph? My information says he emigrated to Toronto with his cousin, Benjamin Burnham, also an orphan.
If Benjamin Hamp was an orphan and I can't find any other leads, then I guess my search ends here.
I have a lot of family info on Benjamin's family if anyone should be interested. I guess that's as good a reason to leave this message as any.
