indentured servant for a 5 year term. He states his father resides in

Ireland, mother is deceased, and that his agent is Nathaniel Wilson.

 

The names of Thomas and Ester are not definitely known, but for

various reasons such as living in the same place at the same time,

enlisting in the Revolutionary War at the same place and time, and

having children with the same names etc. Therefore, Thomas

Hamilton/Hambleton, who deceased 1772, naming the two sons who are

Maryland on January 30, 1753 in Hartford County. (Maryland Hall of

Records, St. John's Parish Register, 1700-1760 (m.1011) page 207)

 

According to family tradition the Hamilton's are of Scottish descent,

coming first to the state of Delaware and thence to Maryland; and

from there to Bedford County, Virginia and thence to Sullivan County,

Tennessee before coming to Floyd Co., KY. All of this time they

spelled their name Hambleton, the Scottish spelling of Hamilton.

Their first deeds for land was spelled Hamilton.

Notes for SAMUEL HAMILTON:

Samuel Hamilton lived in that part of Floyd county that became Pike

County in 1822. First records we find of a Land Grant of 50 acres in

1816- also one for Peter Leadingham. In 1817 he signed the marriage

bond for his daughter Mary to marry John Mullins. (10th November,

1917- File #92)

 

According to Census and marriage records of his children he was born

in Hawkins County, Tennessee. In 1796 and 1797 he is on the tax list

of Sullivan County). (Hawkins county formed in 1786 from Sullivan

County). We find also the names David Wright, Benjamin Hamilton,

Samuel Hamilton, Thomas Hamilton another Thomas Hamilton, Abram

Hamilton, Joshua Hamilton and John Hamilton.

 

In 1810 we find the name Samuel Hamilton listed on the Floyd Co., KY.

census - his age bet. 26-45 (1784-1765)- wife: bet. 26-45 (1765-

1784) - 2 males under 10, 1 male 10/16 - 4 daughters. 1 under 10, 2

10/16 and 1 16/26.

 

On the 1820 census of Floyd Co., KY. Samuel was 45 & up (b. bef.

1775) - wife bet. 26/45 (. 1775-1794) - 1 male under 10 - 1 bet.

10/16, 1 bet. 16/18, 1 bet. 18/26, 1 26/45 - and daughters. 1 bet.

10/16 and 1 26/45.

 

Samuel Hamilton was living in that part of Floyd Co. KY that became

Pike County in 1822 - so in 1830 census he is listed in Pike County,

KY. His age bet. 60-70 (or born bet. 1760-1770) - 1 male 15/20 and 1

male 20/30. No daughters are listed. There are two females living in

his home with 1 bet. 60/70 (b. Bet. 1760-1770) and the other bet.

80/90 (b. bet. 1740-50).

 

Deeds in Pike Co.,KY show him living on the Long Fork of Shelby Creek

next to Peter Leadingham. In 1816 both Samuel Hamilton and Peter

Leadingham were given Land Grants for 50 acres each.

 

19th April 1833 - Deed Al, pa. 285 - Pike Co., KY - Samuel Hamilton,

of Pike Co., KY bought land from William Johnson - a 25 acre tract on

the Long Fork of Shelby Creek "about a quarter of a mile above Samuel

Hamilton"

26 December, 1843 - Deed Book B, pg. 360 - Samuel Hamilton "of County

of Laurel State of KY" sold to Jarvey Hall, a tract of land on the

head of Robinson Creek - "near the Cap of Mud Creek."

 

(NOTE:) I believe this tract was that of Samuel Hamilton, Jr's. since

records show him to have been in Laurel Co., KY at the time of the

birth of his son, Stephen, who married Mary Hamilton, daughter of

Jesse and "Pheny" (Hall) Hamilton.

 

6 April, 1844 - Deed Book B, pg. 376 - Samuel Hamilton, of County of

Floyd, sold to Bailey Johnson, a tract of 12 acres of land on the

Long Fork of Shelby Creek - "a quarter of a mile above Samuel

Also an additional Survey of land containing 30 acres "beginning on a

white oak at the upper end of Isaac Bun_____, a conditional line

between Samuel Hamilton, Sr. and Peter Leadingham, etc..

 

Tax Lists for Pike County, KY. show in 1831 through 1835 both

Samuel's owning land in Pike County. Samuel Jr. is on Robinson Creek

and Samuel Sr. is listed on the Long Fork of Shelby Creek - BUT

Samuel Hamilton is and he is exempted from paying county levies

forever."

 

1835 Floyd County Tax List Samuel Hamilton is listed next to Jesse

Hamilton - land in Pike County, on Shelby Creek -- but not living on

it.

 

In Court Order Book A, pg. 297, of Pike County, KY., March term 1830

Hamilton is and he is exempted from paying county levies forever."

 

These are the last records we find of Samuel Hamilton, Sr.

 

Sue

Benjamin is the son of Thomas Hamilton and Ester Sampson. They had 6 sons: Robert, Richard, James, Thomas, Benjamin and Samuel. Roberts will is listed in the Hawkins Co. list of wills.

 

Helen Hunt's book adds: Regarding Benjamin's service in the Revolutionary War [from a 1908 letter from the Commissioner of the U.S. Revolutionary War Section], she states: "Benjamin's enlistment began May 10, 1780 and (he served) under several different officers up to 1783 being Lucas, Crockett, Beard, Trigg, Thomas, King, Burke. On June 25, 1783 he was drafted in Sullivan County, North Carolina, where he served as a spy and ranger against the Indians." His brother, Thomas, served a much longer time." In 1796 Sullivan Co. NC became Sullivan Co., TN. After moving to Kentucky, he made his home at Relief on Big Paint Creek, Morgan Co. In 1840, he was living with his son, David K. Hamilton, and getting an annual pension of $43.33 from the U.S. government. He was granted his pension from an application executed Dec 2, 1833, as a resident of Morgan Co., KY, aged 72, granted 25 Feb 1834, age 73, Morgan County KY.

Notes for ELIZABETH WRIGHT:

Thomas Hamilton was in Rev War in VA. He and wife, Elizabeth Wright, Moved to Sullivan co.TN where they had my 3rd Great Grandfather, David Hamilton abt 1793. They all moved to the Floyd co. KY area where David married Sally Fitzpatrick 1813, dau of John Fitzpatrick who was also in the Rev War.I would love to know anything about their stay in TN. Thanks for any help! Eleanor

 

 

The assumption that can be virtually proven to be false is that Elizabeth Wright’s father was John Wright. This assumption is based, I suppose, on the fact that it is stated as such in a Bedford County History book, and once something gets recorded in a book people tend to accept it as true, even if scanty documentation is provided. The only documentation offered in this case is the will left by John Wright in Bedford County in 1803 in which he names a daughter “Betsy.” However, a careful reading of the will suggests that this Betsy was not the woman who married Thomas Hamilton. In the will, there is no hint that Betsy was not living at the time (whereas the Elizabeth Wright who married Thomas Hamilton died in Tennessee prior to 1795, when Thomas remarried Anna Martin). Also, there is no hint in the will that John Wright’s Betsy was ever married to Thomas Hamilton or indeed that she had ever been married to anyone at the time of the will. One sister is identified by a married name, but Betsy and the other sisters are identified only by their given names.

       On the other hand there is plenty of evidence to suggest that the real father of Elizabeth Wright (who married Thomas Hamilton) was David Wright. David Wright conveyed land to the Hamiltons in Bedford County on two or three different occasions and, based on land records, obviously lived in the same vicinity. Also, Thomas and Elizabeth named one of their sons David (probably after Elizabeth’s father). We know, too, that David Wright accompanied the Hamiltons to Sullivan County, TN, because in 1816, David Hamilton and his two brothers (Stephen and Thomas) sent a representative from Floyd County, KY to Sullivan County to check on their inheritance when David Wright died in Sullivan County. This alone strongly suggests that David was their deceased mother’s father. Another researcher has suggested that perhaps David Wright was Elizabeth’s brother, but one can tell from Bedford County records that David is very likely a generation older than Elizabeth. Also, if David is Elizabeth’s brother and if John is their father, why is David not named in John Wright’s will? All things considered, it seems both obvious and logical that David Wright, not John Wright, was the father of Elizabeth who married Thomas Hamilton.

       Another assumption that seems very questionable but which cannot definitely be disproved is the idea that the Thomas Hamilton who married Esther Sampson in Baltimore County, MD was born about 1730. This date is derived from a 1744 land transaction in Baltimore County in which a Thomas Hamilton, age about 50, names a son Thomas, age 14, and a daughter Margaret, 17. Apparently most researchers have concluded without evidence that the 14-year-old boy was the person who, nine years later (in 1753), married Esther Sampson. It seems more likely that this marriage was a remarriage for the older Thomas Hamilton. Such remarriages (an older, previously married man to a considerably younger woman) were not uncommon in the colonies in those days (just as they’re not uncommon in Hollywood today). Why else would the man who left the will in Bedford County in 1772 naming wife Esther have referred to himself as “very old”? It’s true that, on average, life expectancy in the eighteenth century was not as long as it is today, but this was mainly because so many people died in childhood, youth, and young adulthood. If a person avoided the diseases of youth, though, and didn’t die giving birth to a child, etc., it was not altogether unusual for the person to keep on living to a ripe old age. A 42-year-old man might conceivably have referred to himself as an “old man,” but he would almost certainly not have called himself a “very old” man. A 78-year-old man would, however, have referred to himself as “very old.”

       Just as I think we should take the will at face value when it says that Thomas was “very old,” I also think we should take it at face value when he names just two sons: Richard and Thomas. Some people, though, have tried to read more into the will than is there by suggesting, for instance, that Richard and Thomas were the only ones still living at home. This logic, however, doesn’t stand up even to token scrutiny, because we know that some of the men (like Benjamin Hamilton) who are known or thought to be brothers of Thomas Hamilton (husband of Elizabeth Wright) were younger than Thomas and would almost certainly have still been living at home in 1772. Why then weren’t they mentioned in the old Thomas’ will? It was not uncommon for a man to omit from his will grown children from a previous marriage (such as Margaret), but Thomas Hamilton would not likely have omitted any of his children by Esther Sampson.

I think the reason Benjamin, etc. were not mentioned in the will is the obvious one: they were not sons of Thomas and Esther. And if Benjamin was not a son of Thomas and Esther, then the Thomas who married Elizabeth Wright was also not a son of Thomas and Esther, because we know from Rev. War pension records that these two men were brothers. There seems to be a tendency to believe, that since old Thomas named sons Richard and Thomas Jr. in his will in Bedford County and a few years later a Richard Hamilton and a Thomas Hamilton got married in the same county, they must be the same two people, but that is not necessarily so. (Remember that there were two Thomas Hamiltons listed on the 1796 Sullivan County tax list.)

       The Thomas Hamilton who married Elizabeth Wright could very easily be the son of Robert Hamilton, who, like Richard, etc., lived in the immediate neighborhood of David Wright and received land from David Wright. Robert Hamilton is mentioned in adult roles as early as 1770 in Bedford County records (which seems to rule him out as a son of Thomas and Esther). It’s very possible he is the same Robert Hamilton who is mentioned in Baltimore County, MD records as having married in 1733 (or he could be this man’s son Robert Hamilton Jr. who was born in 1735). The older Robert could well be a brother to the “old” Thomas Hamilton who left the will in Bedford. Also, it’s possible that the Richard Hamilton mentioned on a 1695 tax list in Baltimore County could be their father (thus the “old” Thomas named a son after his father).

Here’s one more troubling question. In the theoretical reconstruction of the Thomas and Esther Hamilton family that is often accepted as more or less factual, why are Joshua Hamilton and some of the other Hamiltons who show up in Sullivan County with Benjamin, etc. conveniently left out and not considered as likely brothers? Maybe because to include all these men in the same family might strain logic to the point that a flaw in the common assumption becomes obvious? I agree that they probably don’t all belong to the same family, but I think it’s just as likely, for example, that Joshua is a brother of Samuel as it is that Richard is a brother of Samuel.

       Precisely how all these Hamiltons fit together is, of course, speculation—which is exactly my point. I don’t claim to have the answers, but there are enough troubling questions regarding the parentage of Thomas Hamilton (husband of Elizabeth Wright) that to accept some of the common assumptions as facts seems premature until more solid documentation is found. And, as an alternative to Thomas and Esther as parents, I think more attention needs to be directed toward Robert Hamilton of Bedford County as a possible father (or grandfather).

Ester Hamilton was the daughter of Benjamin Hamilton and Susannah (Hurst?). Hettie was probably her nickname. I often see her sister Anna and Ester as daughters of a man named Ned Hamilton. I know for sure Anna was the daughter of Benjamin Hamilton, this is my line and the family has old original deeds and land grant sheep skin papers with Benjamin's name on them. Benjamin sold land to Anna and Isaac Ison. Also Benjamin was buried on what was Isaac Ison's land at the time . I have a feeling that Benjamin's nickname was Ned, because I have heard people in my own family refer to him as that. You won't find Ned on any census ortax list, so must be Ben's nickname. Benjamin's mother was also named Ester, so make perfect sense to think he would also name a daughter that. That is all the proof I can give you. The Ison and Hanna family married into the Hamilton family and back and forth for several generations.

Benjamin Hamilton and his older brother, Thomas, say in their applications for Revolutionary War Pensions that they enlisted in Bedford Co., VA. On John's gravestone is inscribed "PVT, Christina's Regt. VA Troops, Rev. War." The earliest records of the family found by Mrs. Parrish were in "Early Tennessee Tax Lists: 1796-97." Family traditions say that three Hamilton brothers, Thomas, Benjamin and Samuel, came to Eastern Kentucky in the early 1800s. Other records I have seen don't list these brothers. In Benjamin's household for the 1810 Floyd County census were his wife and ten children under 26 years of age. His is the only Hamilton household in this 1810 census. In 1820, five children were still in Benjamin's household.

 

Helen Hunt's book adds information to that provided in Mrs. Parrish's work. Regarding Benjamin's service in the Revolutionary War [from a 1908 letter from the Commissioner of the U.S. Revolutionary War Section], she states: "Benjamin's enlistment began May 10, 1780 and (he served) under several different officers up to 1783.

NC became Sullivan Co., TN. After moving to Kentucky, he made his home at Relief on Big Paint Creek, Morgan Co. In 1840, he was living with his son, David K. Hamilton, and getting an annual pension of $43.33 from the U.S. government. He was granted his pension from an application executed Dec 2, 1833, as a resident of Morgan Co., KY, aged 72.

On Susannah, wife of Benjamin Hamilton. She was thought to be a Hurst because much earlier researchers had some "handed down family info" that was her maiden name. I was also told that the John Hurst, living in the household of Benjamin Hamilton's daughter, Anna, and her husband Isaac Ison on the 1860 Morgan County census, was Anna's half-brother. I don't believe the stories about Susannah being "Moonglow" a full-blooded Cherokee. I am a descendant of Anna and Isaac Ison, also I descend from Benjamin Hamilton through four other ways, through Nancy twice who was married to Joseph Hanna, through Sarah married to Edward Hill, and through John Hamilton married to Mary May. My gr.grandfather Dock Ison was the son of Anna and Isaac Ison. Dock Ison was married to Teresa Hamilton, the daughter of Benjamin Hamilton and Frankey Jean Williams (Ben married next Nancy Fairchild). Benjamin was the son of John Hamilton and Mary May. Dock Ison told his grand-daughter, my aunt, the "Moonglow" story. He told her that she was descended from "Moonglow" through Teresa but not through him. He said that they both descended from "Old" Benjamin Hamilton, but through different wives of "Old" Benjamin's. So I believe the "Moonglow" story, I just believe it was a wife of Benjamin's sometime prior to Susannah. Also, if Susannah was the mother of John Hurst, as I believe she was, then the Indian story does not fit the situation. The story goes that she chose the name Susannah Hurst as her Christian name after she left her tribe. Why wouldn't she have chosen Susannah and her last name as Hamilton, why on earth would she have added Hurst. I do think it possible that Susannah was part Cherokee Susannah would have been very young when John Hurst was born. I think Hurst was probably her maiden last name, not a married last name.

 

Some have Benjamin Hamilton married first to a Mary Rankin. That possible, but I have not been able to find any marriage record, don't know where this came from. There is a Benjamin Hamilton in Bledsoe, Tennesse that was married to a Mary, and early researchers were claiming her to be Mary Rankin, and now are claiming her to be Mary Colly/Collie. So maybe somewhere there is a marriage record which lead them to make a claim their Benjamin was married to Mary Rankin. I would like to find this marriage record. It would make sense that Benjamin Hamilton had wives prior to Susannah, there seems to be breaks in the birthdates of his children. I believe Susannah was the wife who came to Kentucky with Benjamin, and all the children born in Kentucky were hers.

 

I saw the original headstones for Benjamin and Susannah. They were field rocks. Benjamin's faintly had Ben scratched on it, the other one which was supposed to be for Susannah, was a triangle shaped field rock with a crude faint arrow pointing up to a round circle. Was this "Moonglow" was it Susannah, I don't know. I only know what I was told, I know what I believe, and I have to leave what everyone else believes up to them.

 

As for Thomas Hamilton and Esther Sampson being the parents of "Old" Benjamin Hamilton. Benjamin Hamilton wasn't named in their will, but son Thomas was. I don't have a copy of the will, do you? Benjamin Hamilton can be linked to Thomas Hamilton married to Elizabeth Wright through Rev. War pension claims. I don't know of any absolute proof that this Thomas Hamilton was the Thomas Hamilton named in the will, do you? As for a Robert Hamilton being the father of "Old" Benjamin Hamilton, I don't know of any children or grandchildren named Robert in Benjamin's line. He did have a daughter named Esther. Have you found anything conclusive on Benjamin's parents?

Excerpt from the Licking Valley Courier News Article, Thursday, January 14,1999

 

Benjamin started a fur trapping venture with a man named Chandler. They were doing good selling furs to traders from the East. Some Cherokees evidently felt that the two white men were hurting their trading ventures. Benjamin and Chandler were taken captive and taken before a Council of Chieftains to be dealt with. The usual punishment was to run the gauntlet (two parallel lines of brave stabbing and slashing with knives and lances.) If the captive survived this, they were then burned at the stake. Benjamin and Chandler were sentences to be burned at the right phase of the moon.

 

An Indian girl was assigned the task of providing food and water for the men. Benjamin became friendly with her and gained her confidence. He promised to marry her if she would help them escape. She secured their freedom and was married to Benjamin. Her name was Moonglow but she later took the Christian name of Susanne Hurst.

-------------------------------------------------

Benjamin and Moonglow had 10 children. Benjamin died on July 12, 1849 in Moon, Morgan County. Susannah died in 1846 also in Moon. They are buried on a small flat above the creek, shaded by large trees native to this area behind the old Moon Post Office.

 

Benjamin served in the Revolutionary War from 1780-1782 as a Spy and a Ranger. The local chapters of the Daughters of the American Revolution and Sons of the American Revolution from Paintsville, Johnson County, dedicated a monument to Benjamin on October 22, 1995 in Moon, Morgan County.

 

 

 

Note by Bobby Daniel: The website has a photo of the log cabin on the left of 172 in Johnson County just before reaching the Morgan County line. We've all passed it a hundred times. The web site has this photo caption:

 

This small cabin was built from logs that were salvaged from the original cabin built in 1812 by my maternal 6th great grandparents, Benjamin S. and Susannah "Moonglow" Hurst Hamilton. The cabin is located on Rt. 172 in Red Bush, Johnson County, close to the Morgan-Johnson County line.

 

 

 

Susannah married Benjamin Hamilton in 1792 in Tennessee.1 (Benjamin Hamilton was born in 1761,3 died in 1849 3 and was buried in Jackie Hamilton Farm In Relief, Kentucky 1.)

Notes for LOUISA K HAMILTON:

HOLBROOK, Louisa Catherine (Hamilton)

1850-1940

LOUISA CATHERINE HOLBROOK WAS NATIVE OF JOHNSON COUNTY

On November 21, (1940) death entered the home of Ben Holbrook, New Boston, Ohio, and took his aged mother, Mrs. Louisa Catherine Holbrook. Mrs. Holbrook was formerly of Johnson County and was a sister of B. R. Hamilton of Red Bush, Ky. She was born May 26, 1850 and died November 21, 1940, age 90 years. She was the daughter of Thomas Hamilton and Mary Ferguson Hamilton, who were among the early settlers of the Laurel Creek section. In 1870 she was married to William Henderson Holbrook, of Lawrence Co., Ky. who died within a year of their marriage.  To this union was born one daughter, Cora Holbrook Webb, deceased. On May 13, 1875, she was married to John Burton Holbrook, of Elliott County, and to this union was born four children; Fora, Normand, Ben and Willie.  Fora died in early childhood.  The three sons are living. John Burton Holbrook preceded her in death a good many years ago. At one time in her life ahe was a member of the United Baptist Church, although about the year 1900 she changed her membership to the Enterprise Baptist Church to which she remained faithful and lived a devout Christian life. "Aunt Katy" as she was affectionately known, had a pleasing personality and spoke with kindness to everyone.  Especially worthy of praise were the kindness, the home, and the daily care which she gave an invalid sister-in-law for about 27 years. For the last few years she had made her home with her son, Ben at New Boston, Ohio, where she had the best of care and everything was done for her comfort that loving hands could do. Of her first marriage she is survived by one grandson, Roy E. Webb, of Red Bush, 4 great grand- children and 3 great-great grandchildren. Of her second marriage she is survived by three sons, 7 grandchildren and six great grandchildren. Mrs. Holbrook's body was brought to the home of B. R. Hamilton on Friday where it lay in state until funeral services Saturday were conducted by Rev. H. T. Hamilton and Rev. Bill Hill. John R. Hamilton led in prayer at the cemetery. Burial was made in the Hamilton Cemetery overlooking the place she was born. "From our presence she has gone To rest at God's throne To await the angel's call Then she will meet the rest of us all." -Prudy Hamilton PAINTSVILLE HERALD THURSDAY 11-28-1940

Notes for ELIZABETH HICKS:

http://www.tngenweb.org/goodspeed/sullivan/bios-1.html

 W. P. Hamilton, Proprietor of the Hamilton House, of Bristol, the most popular one between Knoxville and Lynchburg, Va., was born near Blountville July 12. 1838.

The great-grandfather, William, was a native of the North of Ireland, and for many years was a surgeon on the sea. He afterward went to Scotland, where he married Catharine Graham, and then came to what is now Fauquier County, Va.

 Their children were John, James, Robert, Catharine, Jane, Margaret and Ellen.

They first settled in Kentucky, the next in Tennessee, the next, the grandfather settled in Hawkins County, Tenn., where he married Sarah B., a daughter of Jarret Brandon, whose wife, Margaret, was a sister of John Bell’s father who came from the North of Ireland.

The grandfather reared thirteen children-seven sons and six daughters; one of these, William, married Matilda Hicks, and they reared six sons and four daughters. John B., the second son, and the father of our subject was born in Hawkins County, February 16, 1798, and in 1827 came to this county and settled near Blountville.

He served as sheriff for six years, beginning with 1840, and in 1846 and 1847 represented this county in the Legislature. He was a stock dealer and a farmer. May 12, 1822, he married Elizabeth, the daughter of Stephen Hicks who was of German origin. She was born near Blountville, February 12, 1790, and deceased February 14, 1856. The father died on October 23, 1862. He was a Presbyterian, while the mother belonged to the Baptist Church.

Their children were Stephen J., Robert P., George B., Jacob, John S., Martha E., Mary E. and our subject.

 He was educated at Fall Branch Seminary, and Jefferson Academy, at Blountville. When eighteen years old he left the farm, and December 11, 1856, went to Blountville, where he became a clerk for John Powell.

 In January, 1859, he became clerk for James & Seneker at Bristol, and in January, 1861, he entered the store of R. T. Lancaster.

 In June, following, he joined Company G, Nineteenth Confederate Tennessee Infantry, and afterward was transferred to Capt. Jacob Hamilton’s company of the Twenty-ninth Tennessee, and became second lieutenant, afterward first lieutenant. His health compelled him to return home, and in March, 1863, he resigned his command. In December, 1864, he was captured in East Tennessee, and placed in the hospital at Knoxville, where he remained until February, 1865.

 In 1866 he left Bristol, and went to Christian County, Ky., but after four years farming returned to Bristol, and was variously engaged until 1876, when he opened his present hotel.

 In 1882 he bought the brick propefty on the Virginia side of Bristol, and continued his hotel until 1883, when he leased the Nickels House. Three years later he came to his present building, where he is doing a large business in the only first-class hotel in Bristol. December 24, 1861- he married Kate P., the daughter of Rev. E. W. and Ann R. Roach, the former a Baptisi minister, of Virginia.

 She was born in Charlotte County, Va., December 20, 1839. Her mother was a daughter of Col. Isham Harvey.

Our subject’s children were Emma L., now Mrs. W. J. Thomas, Elijah B., deceased in infancy; William.W., in business with his father, and Charmie B. H. C. Hicks was born in this county April 15, 1824, the son of James G. Hicks, Sr., and Mary (Ketron) Hicks; the former a son of John Hicks, of English descent, and a pioneer of this county, was a Virginian by birth. He came to this county in 1795, was a farmer, and a devoted member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, as was also his wife, who was also a Virginian by birth, of German descent. The father died in 1869, aged eighty-two years; the mother died in 1874, aged eighty-nine years. Our subject, one of live sons, learned blacksmithing and farming, and attended country schools. He began with no capital, and after a life in his trade and farming he is now one of the most prosperous men of his county. On May 5, 1845, he married Sarah E., daughter of Maj. John Johnson. He was a fife-major in the war of 1812-15, serving two terms in said war; was a pioneer of this county. Our subject H. C. Hicks, is the father of twelve children, three sons and nine daughters, the first two born-twin boys, died at the age of eleven months, and were buried in one and the same grave; one daughter died when young. Of the living eight daughters, seven are married; one daughter and the only son, the youngest, are unmarried. Our subject owns a farm of 400 acres, and is in good circumstances.

Notes for JOHN HAMILTON:

Birth: 1793 in Tenn.

Death: 1886 in Morgan Co., KY

Burial: Redbush, KY

Note: A descendant, Anthony Lynn Adkins, of West Liberty, KY gave me genealogy sheets on Sept. 12, 1998 that state that John Hamilton and Mary (May) Hamilton were buried at Relief on the Hamilton family farm. Their graves were moved to the Hamilton Cemetery at Redbush, KY when the Paint Creek Dam was built.

 

Buried at the Hamilton Cemetery Redbush Ky.

 

A printed page indicating sources: Nelson County (KY) History; Louisville, City of Conflicts; and James Hamilton was given to me by a descendant of Mary Polly May and John Hamilton (father of John May Hamilton) states that: "John May Hamliton was born in Floyd County, KY in 1827. He was the son of John and Mary Polly (May) Hamilton. In 1861 he was living with his wife and three chldren at Redbush, KY. He enlisted in the Confederate 5th KY regiment and was elected 1st Sergeant. He served under General Humphrey Marshall. He was discharged after his year's enlistment was up. Former Confederates could not return home because of Home Guards and the prescence of Union troops.

 

John spent the rest of his service with Partisan Rangers in Tennessee and Kentucky. He was with Sidney Cook's guerillas to Flemingsburg, Ashland and Olive Hill.

 

John May Hamilton was captured by Union troopers on March 4, 1864 while at his brother Tom Hamilton's house at Relief, KY. He was taken to a prisoner of war camp near Lexington (KY), accused of being a spy for the Confederate Army.

 

In 1969 Mrs. Albert Thompson of Bardstown, KY interviewed an elderly lady She related the following account: "Southern guerillas stopped at the home of John R. Jones south of Bloomfield, KY, on the Bloomfield-Springfield Turnpike. They demanded that he tradd fresh horses for their worn out ones. Jones argued with them but finally relented. He would not let them have a new saddle with the trade. He was shot as he sat on his porch".

 

Another version is by Dr. A. H. Merrifield's reminiscences of the war in Nelson Co., KY: "Union soldiers arrived with two young men as prisoners. They had been brought from Lexington (KY), They had drawn two black beans out of a bag of white ones. This signaled that they would be executed for a crime unknown to them. Union General S. G. Burnbridge had ordered two southerners to be shot for every northern supporter killed. John May Hamilton and Richmond Berry were made to ride atop their coffins up "Bunker Hill". There they were shot in retaliation for the murdr of John Jones. According to Dr. Merrifield, Richmond Berry showed signs of weakness but John May Hamilton told him to be brave. After the execution the people of the town laid the bodies in state in the Masonic Hall. They were buried in metal caskets in the Maple Grove Cemetery. Richmond Berry was moved to Glasglow after the war. John May Hamilton remains there today. The women's club erected a stone in his memory. The stone reads: CSA May Hamilton of Richmond, VA, Shot July 14, 1864, in retaliation for the death of John R. Jones. "Though a stranger he lies among friends".

 

John May Hamilton was married to Elizabeth Hargis. They had three children: Many A. Hamilton; Franklin Pierce Hamilton; Cynthia Jane Hamilton. (End of quoting from the sheet).

 

The descendants of John May Hamilton were having a reunion in the lower level of the May Lodge at Prestonsburg, KY on Saturday, Sept. 12, 1998 at the same time that the descendants of John May and Sarah Jane (Phillips) May were having their reunion. Mary (MAY) Hamilton, the mother of John May Hamilton was the daughter of John May and Sarah Jane (Phillips) May.

Edward Hill

Born: 1794, VA 2

Marriage: Sarah "Sally" Elizabeth Hamilton on 27 Jul 1815 in Floyd County, KY 1

 

  General Notes:

 

I feel sure there are other children as the 1850 census lists an Elizabeth born about 1836. Also Sally was a common nickname for Sarah.

 

Notice that 5 of the children married sons and daughers of John T. (Squire) Williams

Here is where my Hill ancestry forks. Spencer Hill had a son, Edward Hill, who had a son Joseph Clark Hill who had a daughter, Mintie Hill, my Grandmother.

 

William Henry Hill was 68 years old when his daughter, Rachel Hill, was born, who had a daughter, Mintie Hill, my Grandmother.

 

Note that because William Henry was so old when Rachel Hill was born, there is a generation missing. This explains how Edward Hill and Sarah E. Hamilton can be my 3rd Great Grandparents or 4th Great Grandparents depending on which fork of the Hill tree you take.

 

Edward Hill is mentioned 3 times in the first Morgan County Court Order Book 1823-30. This book was abstracted and indexed for genealogists by Joe Nickell and Ella Nickell in 1984. The following quotes are from that book.

 

Page 26. Tuesday, January 11, 1825 On Jos. Hannah's motion, Edwd. Hill, Elijah Smith, Lewis Tackett, and Nelson Keeton to view change in road at Jos. Hannah's so as to avoid Hannah's improvement if practical.

 

Page 30. 4th April, 1825 On motion of David Fannon and Mathias Kelly, ordered that Joseph Hanna, Edward Hill, Robert Craig and Peter Day appraise “in Current Money the slaves if any and person(al) Estate of Gideon Lewis Decd.” and report same.

 

Page 62. Monday, February 4, 1828 Edward Hill appointed surveyor of road in place of Lewis Tackett.

==End of Quote==

 

In the 1870 census for Morgan County, Ky Edward is living near his sons Elliot and William Henry. William is married to his first wife, Martha Williams. After her death he will marry Sarah Margaret Rowland and one of their 3 children will be Rachel Hill, my Great Grandmother. Edward is age 77, widowed and his real estate is now valued at $100. A black female, age 48 named Lucinda, is living with him. The story goes that she was given to Edward to pay a debt before the Civil War. He and his family treated her like one of them, not a slave, and she remained with them after the War.

 

 

 

Edward married Sarah "Sally" Elizabeth Hamilton, daughter of Benjamin Hamilton and Susannah Moonglow Hurst, on 27 Jul 1815 in Floyd County, KY.1 (Sarah "Sally" Elizabeth Hamilton was born in 1796 in VA 2.)

Notes for JACOB HAMILTON:

 

 

Jacob Hamilton (deceased), a planter, was born near Blountville, Tenn., February 2, 1828, the son of John B. and Elizabeth (Hicks) Hamilton, the former born in 1796, where the wife of our subject now lives, and deceased in Blountville in 1863. The Hamilton ancestors were from Ireland. John B. was a successful farmer and trader, and acquired considerable property. He was sheriff several years and in politics a Democrat, while his religious faith was Presbyterian. The mother, born also near Blountville about 1780, died in Sullivan County, about sixty five years of age, a member of the Baptist Church. Our subject, the third of nine children (but three living), left home at twenty-two and came to the farm where he lived so long and which he rented until 1864 and soon bought. He was then a merchant at Bristol, Tenn., until 1866, then for two years a hotel keeper in Blountville, when he returned to the farm. This consists of 1,200 acres on the Holston river and Bays Mountain. He was very successful, but his generous nature led him to suffer as a surety, a great deal. In the spring of 1861 he enlisted in Col. Samuel Powell’s Confederate Infantry, and was at Shiloh, Chickamauga and other actions, serving until March, 1864, when he returned home on account of ill health. Our subject entered the war as a lieutenant, but afterward became captain. He represented Hawkins County in the Lower House of the Legislature in 1856-57. He was the first Master of the lodge at Fall Branch and at Church Hill in the Masonic lodges. He was moderator at the Holston Baptist association several years in succession. He was in many respects a remarkable man, and in every respect one of the most worthy and generally esteemed Christian gentlemen of his day. Ida D., his daughter, died, when but twelve years of age, in 1865. Olivia M., their eldest daughter, married A. C. Smith. He was a member of the Baptist Church from his eighteenth year, and was long a Mason. In politics he was a Democrat. He was educated at Blountville. March 12, 1850, he married Margaret E. Maxwell, who was born in Mecklenburg County, N.C., September 28, 1825, the daughter of J. J. and Margaret (Wallace) Maxwell who where of Scotch-Irish origin. She is an educated lady, and a member of the Missionary Baptist Church, and the postoffice of Margaret, established in 1882, and of which she became postmistress, was named in her honor. She has also proved herself an able farm superintendent since her husband’s death.

> Benjamin S. Hamilton was married first to Frankey Jean Williams,

d/o

> Squire John Williams and Phoebe Ferguson. All I can find online

says
