Landon and Ruby Hampton were owners and operators of the iconic Skullbone Store until recently retiring in the Spring of 2019. Both were graduates of Bradford High School, as well as, both children and all their grandchildren. In 1956 they married and went to Chicago in search of jobs. While in Chicago they had 2 children, Rene (Hampton) Arrington and Mark Hampton. They returned back to Skullbone in 1964 and purchased Skullbone Store which they owned and operated for 55 years. 

Their daughter Rene married Mike Arrington of Bradford and had two children, Tyler (Worthy) Arrington and Jessie (Zac) Keymon both residents of Skullbone.

Their son Mark Hampton married Delana Collomp Hampton and had two children Gentry (Allie) Hampton, residents of Jackson and Grant Hampton, resident of Skullbone.

Landon and Ruby just welcomed their first great grandchild, Oliver Keymon and are expecting their second great grandson at the beginning of November. 

Landon and Ruby have been involved in the Bradford community for years serving on the school board, bank board, involved in the local church and various other organizations. They are thankful to be apart of such a wonderful community of people.
