Thomas Hamilton
Revolutionary War Veteran

from David K Staub email dated 22 Feb 2008
  • I think the Thomas Hamilton listed in the The Abstract of Graves of Revolutionary Patriots, Vol. 2, p. Serial 11999, Vol. 8 was the Thomas Hamilton of whom it was written in an 1889 Edgar County, Illinois county history:
    "The maiden name of the mother of Mrs. [Hannah Patterson] Hanley was Nancy Hamilton.  She was a native of Virginia, born near the town of Moresfield and was the daughter of Thomas Hamilton, who was born in England.  He served in the English army and as a soldier of that army was brought over the Atlantic to fight the colonists.  This he did not wish to do, so deserted the ranks and located in Virginia and lived in Palmyra, Warren County, the remainder of his days"
    Source:   "Portrait and biographical album of Vermilion and Edgar Counties, Illinois: containing full page portraits and biographical sketches of prominent and representative citizens of the counties". 1889. Chicago: Chapman Brothers, page 1037 [part of a biographical sketch of  David Hanley, husband of Hannah (Patterson) Hanley]
  • The IGI gives his death as 1827 in Mason, Warren County, Ohio, which would be consistent with an interment in Unity Cemetery.
  • Daughters of the American Revolution Official Roster of the Soldiers of the American Revolution - State of Ohio 1938:
    Hamilton, Thomas, Butler Co. - Unable to prove service as many of this name and State where served unknown. Settled Hardy Co., Va. near Morefield after War; married Sarah Seymour. Had 14 children. In early 1800 moved to Warren and Butler Co. Ohio where lived till died 1827 and wife died 1830. Buried Unity church yard near Mason, Butler Co. Marked [grave]. Thomas had 4 sons in 1812 war. Data by Adda Hamilton Davis Columbus, Ohio

8 Jan 2007 Bob Denton of Akron, Ohio writes,
" have been tracing my gt., gt. gt. grandfather, Thomas Alexander Hamilton who was a Capt. during the Rev. War. I noticed, in the source below, there is a Thomas Hamilton buried in the Unity Church Cemetery. His sons ended up in Washington County Ohio after moving from Guernsey County in the first part of the 1800s. Thomas died about 1786 or so. Since you are seeking names with unidentified headstones perhaps this will be helpful.
The Abstract of Graves of Revolutionary Patriots, Vol. 2, p. Serial 11999, Vol. 8 indicates a Thomas Hamilton is burried in the "Unity Ch. Cemetery near Mason, Ohio 56." Note: it is uncertain if this is the same Thomas A. H. The data, so far, fits the other records which indicate he was given land after the Revolutionary War (see Revolutionary War Boutny Land Grants on Ancestry.com]."
