Recently I was afforded the opportunity to use a online newspaper search program. So I looked up the names of Lamphere or Lanphere. I looked mainly at the vital stats.; obits. and births. Here are my results. I hope that this can be of value. I have already found a key link in my search from this list; a gg-aunt. I am hoping that her children will be able to fill in a few missing links.

The Boston Herald December 12, 1996 Thursday
A Massachusetts trucker was brought back to Washington state yesterday to face charges of shooting a woman to death after posing as the Red Sox equipment manager. Blue-eyed, long-haul driver Paul Michael Goyette of Berkley is scheduled to be arraigned Monday for the slaying of Elizabeth Laura LAMPHERE, who was the primary care-giver for her terminally ill mother. LAMPHERE, 27, of Kent, Wash., disappeared Sept. 23 and friends quickly organized a search party, fearing she fled out of depression. One day before she vanished, LAMPHERE had allowed doctors to remove her mother from a life support machine. LAMPHERE, 27, the mother of an 11-year-old boy, was last seen on Sept. 23 leaving a gay bar with Goyette in Kent, a town just south of Seattle, according to LAMPHERE's friends. The mother died Oct. 3, a month before LAMPHERE's partially nude body was found in an irrigation ditch behind a moving and storage company in Kent. She had been shot in the head at close range with a small-caliber handgun.
Two of LAMPHERE's friends said they last saw her alive, leaving a gay bar in Kent with a man named "Paul." The friends overheard LAMPHERE telling the man she was a lesbian, but she could be intimate with "the right man (who) came along and said the right things." After LAMPHERE disappeared, police distributed a photograph of her and a description of "Paul." Kent resident Deborah Dyer recognized the description and called police. Three days before LAMPHERE vanished, Dyer said a man matching the description tried to woo her in a Kent bar. She said the man had bragged he was a former professional baseball player and handed her a card identifying him as Red Sox equipment manager Joe Cochran.
Police contacted Cochran, who advised them a United Van Lines trucker had stolen his business cards several years ago and was using them to pick up women in bars. When police contacted United Van Lines they were told the driver was Goyette and that he was in Kent at the time LAMPHERE disappeared. Goyette was arrested in St. Louis Monday and police say they found evidence at the murder scene that ties the trucker to the slaying. Goyette is being held on $ 2 million bail.

The Seattle Times July 24, 1995, Monday
MARGARET LENNON, RAN PACKING FIRM, LIVED HER LIFE WITH SPUNK , It must have been spending her girlhood on a dairy farm in North Bend - and scampering up Mount Si whenever the mood struck - that gave Margaret M. Lennon so much energy and spunk. That, and being married to kindred competitive spirit Ray Lennon, her high-school sweetheart. Alongside her late husband, the lively woman with the "marble-blue" eyes ran Lennon Packing Co. below Pike Place Market, reared children, grew vegetables, and decorated her house for every possible holiday. "Especially St. Patrick's Day," said her daughter Colleen Lennon of Seattle. "She was so proud of her Irish heritage." Mrs. Lennon died July 17 of cardiopulmonary problems. But she'd made the most of her 80 years. In her spare time, Mrs. Lennon visited, shopped and traveled, able even in advanced age to run her offspring ragged in New York City. "You didn't rest on her vacations," said her daughter, Maureen LANPHERE of Seattle. With her husband, Mrs. Lennon owned six Thoroughbred racehorses. She also co-sponsored local semiprofessional baseball teams and attended major sporting events whenever she got the chance. The white-haired matriarch pursued all her interests with class, and she liked having her way and being in the center of things. "She loved clothes," LANPHERE said. "Someone said it was ironic that her funeral Friday was the first day of the Nordstrom sale." Mrs. Lennon had a lifelong affection for animals. She adopted many cats and dogs left at her door. She tried constantly to better her deteriorating health, becoming an inspiration for others. She also made friends easily. "She could start a conversation with a park bench," Colleen Lennon said. "Mom loved a good joke and could laugh," LANPHERE said. "She had a bit of the Irish devil in her." Other survivors include daughter Patricia Hutton and three grandchildren, all of Seattle.

Star Tribune (Minneapolis, MN) June 19, 1992
Elmer Lamphere could see the twinkling lights of downtown Minneapolis from a 40-acre plot of land he bought in New Hope in 1945 and decided that anything that close to Minneapolis "has to be worth something." He later bought another 40 acres that became the Midland Shopping Center. He also owned 20 acres in Golden Valley that were turned into a strip of small businesses. Lamphere, 90, one of the original land developers in New Hope, died Thursday at North Memorial Medical Center in Robbinsdale. "He wasn't afraid to get up and talk to the City Council to get things done," said his son, Harold, of New Hope. "He'd call people at 10 o'clock at night or 5 in the morning if he needed something done." Lamphere lived in Minneapolis until he was orphaned when he was 10 or 11 years old. He was sent to live with relatives in South Dakota; his sisters were sent to relatives in Iowa. He was a traveling salesman when he saw a newspaper ad for 40 acres of land at Medicine Lake Rd. and Winnetka Av. N. He bought it. "New Hope was a township then," his son said. "There was nothing out here. There were no homes, just farmland. I thought he was crazy to buy a chunk of clay. But I guess. . . ." When Lamphere subdivided the property in about 1955, neighboring farmers didn't want a sewer line. But he persuaded the president of the New Hope Township board to support a $ 3 million referendum, and it passed. He also persuaded the FHA to approve mortgages for the homes in his subdivision. In the late 1950s, Lamphere bought the land that would become the Midland Shopping Center. When he retired from his sales job in 1962, he built an apartment building across from the shopping center, at 2900 Winnetka Av., and managed it until 1978. He also owned other land in New Hope and Golden Valley. Although he and his wife of 68 years, Mae, had spent winters in Florida for more than 25 years, they still lived in their original (but remodeled) farmhouse on Lamphere Dr., named in the couple's honor. Besides his wife and son, Lamphere is survived by a daughter, Joan Konop, of Maple Grove; 10 grandchildren, and 28 great-grandchildren. Services will be held at 2 p.m. Monday at the Gearty-Delmore Funeral Chapel, 3888 W. Broadway, Robbinsdale. Visitation will begin an hour before the service.
I hope that this list can help out some searching for our extended family of Lampheres.
