My Mom is related to the Uptons that lived in Kinta...and I am trying to get information about her Mother, Lottie Upton...father unknown...and her Grandmother (Lottie's mother) Belle Upton. She had Lottie as an unwed mother, so it has been hard to get information on them. Thanks, If you want to email me please use Firebrnd46@home.com as the e-mail address. Thanks, Again Brenda

Hi Uptons
My grandfather, Ed Upton lived in Salina, Ok and farmed on the Grand river. He sang and played banjo on some of the early radio stations around Tulsa and Ok city. He later moved to Little Rock, Arkansas where he worked as a street car conductor. My dad, Harley said our name used to be Uptain. He said our ancestors owned a company that made washing machines and later sold out to Maytag. They also made air rifles. Any connections?

Hi Mickey,
Your info on your Upton family is somewhat "fractured". There was a branch of Uptons that changed their name to Uptain. but they were not related to your Uptons, who never used the name Uptain. There were also Uptons in the washing machine busines, they founded the company that later became Whirlpool (not Maytag). They were also from a totally different branch of Uptons. If you would like accurate information on your Upton family, contact me at pathill@netzero.com and I will send you the pages from the 2500 page "Upton Encyclopedia" CD which I publish.
