He served for various periods totaling 18 months under the command of Capts. Baker and Brown, and Cols. Heard and Luse.

    • "Wm. H. Hamilton" obituary, The Western Star (Lebanon, Ohio,) Thursday July 7, 1887
      ". . .. His father, Robert Hamilton, was born in Bainbridge, county Down, Ireland, in 1760; came to America when but a lad of fourteen years, and shortly afterward became a soldier of the Revolutionary war; he served throughout the war, much of the time under command of Gen. Anthony Wayne.  He was with him at the storming of Stoney Point, and was one of the men to lift him up when a glancing bullet had felled the brave commander.  Afterwards he was captured by his own brother, a British officer, but refused to go home to Ireland if set free, preferring to fight for his newly adopted country.  . .."
    • 20 Jan 2011 Annette Pederson :
      " . . . I am a member of Anne Loucks Chapter in Martinez, CA,. My patriot, Robert Hamilton, is listed on our website.
      " Also, I read the brief biography that is posted on your website for Robert and I believe there in an error. The comment about his brother capturing him at Germantown is taken out of context. According to the family biography, Robert was wounded and captured at the famous battle, but he did not have an older brother, so it likely that the British officer was a step brother or close relative. He is quoted as saying, “Brother, Bobbie”, but the relationship is unclear."

    • 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.

      "My other set of ggg-grandparents, James and Mary McCord Johnson are also buried at Springboro Cemetery. Today, while on Ancestry.com attempting to find some proof of just when my James Johnston/Johnson arrived in Warren County I accidentally came across Ancestry's National Archives Records "Revolutionary War Pension and Bounty-Land Warrant Application Files, 1800-1900" and there he was! Six or 7 pages, 3 of which were full page hand written documentation of he testifying about his eligibility for a pension which ended with his signature which exactly matched that I have on his Last Will and Testament and other papers. It also states he was from Lancaster Co PA which he was and that he lived in Clear Creek Twp OH which he did and that he was age 83 when he applied which he was! How neat is that!
      Here is a link to the first page of testimony which ends with him getting a $20 pension per annum which he collected for just 4 years before he died in 1836. http://goo.gl/fZlZ6 "

    • 19 May 2009 by John Apgar
      "My mother Mary Ross Apgar and her sister Janet Ross Johnson did extensive research on the Ross family. Alexander Ross is our stopping point on that side of the family. What we are lacking for him is his place of birth (country of Origin), his parents, emigration date to the US. We know he traveled to Brownsville (Redstone) in Pa, then moved with his inlaws to Franklin in Warren County . He served in the Rev War, at Battle of Brandywine, Paoli (captured), and Whiskey Rebellion. My mother, Mary Ross Apgar visited the Warren County Courthouse and examined their records in person. It was from there that she discovered Alexander Ross (1755-1809) and his wife, Nancy Ann Ross, were buried in Dicks Creek Cemetery. There is no gravestone, as it may have been destroyed or removed over the years. We also have references from the Kidner family (an in law from one of Alexander's children) that he was burried there."
