Biographical Sketch: Dr. Joseph Lyon Miller was a medical doctor from Thomas, West Virginia, who collected and wrote on his family's genealogy, particularly that of the Fielding and Davis families. He also collected extensive materials relating to his wife's family the Hamptons. He gave these records to his nephew John Hampton.

A rancher, John Howard Hampton was born in Fort Worth, Texas, on January 17, 1898. He began ranching near Clarksville, Texas, later working on 6666 Ranch and directing ranch operations near Slaton, Texas and Tucumcari, New Mexico. From 1956-1958, he served as president of West Texas Museum Association. Hampton donated extensive Indian and western collections to area museums before his death in Tucumcari in 1967. He donated the Joseph Miller collection to the Southwest Collection at Texas Tech.
