William David Wampler
Born in Indiana in 1838, William David Wampler came to Washington Territory before 1872 and settled in the Diamond Hill area near La Center, Washington. He was a farmer and had lived in Iowa, where his daughter
Athalinda was born in 1858 prior to immigrating to dark County. His first wife was Kate Cook who was killed in an accident involving a horse before the family came west. He later married Emma Groves, the daughter of John B. and Catherine Groves. Emma was born in 1848 in Illinois, her father was born ca. 1815 in Indiana and her mother was born ca. 1820 in Pennsylvania. It is unclear which children were by each marriage or if all of the children are listed. During the Civil War William served as a Private in Company "A" of the 146th Indiana Infantry. He was interred in the Post Military Cemetery in Vancouver on April 5, 1926.
