      Steve Crouch
      Birth - has other people say born in PA, Harrison, Co, Ky or Greenbriar Co. WVA
      Death - 1803 at Harrison Co., Ky
      maybe buried at a cemetary in Cynthiana, Ky.

      Thomas Rayford Hamilton - Thomas born in PA.

      TR Hamilton -
      Harrison Co. Kentucky, was formed from Bourbon and Scott Co. in 1793. In the
      old tax lists of Harrison Co. kept at Frankfort, we find Thomas Hamilton's
      name in 1794. In his family were two males over 21 and one male under 21. He
      possessed 9 horses and 18 cows. The next year he paid taxes on 200 acres of
      land and additional stock. In 1796 he had acquired 400 acres of land.

      His will was written on Novmber 16, 1802, and poved in October court of
      1803. In it the name was spelled both Hambleton and Hamilton. He gave to his
      sons David, John, William, James, and Andrew all his land. "Be it remember
      that I given to all the rest of my children what I intend to give them", but
      leave to my wife's discretion to give any of them as she may think proper. I
      give and bequeath to my beloved wife all my moveable property house and
      plantation I now live on during her natural life and then to be disposed of
      as before mentioned.---- William Elliot Boswell, my faithful friend was
      appointed executor. So far we have been unable to learn the name of Thomas
      Hamilton's wife or where they lived before coming to Harrison Co. Kentucky.
      We derive the name of one daugther, Sarah, through a marriage record.

      On the 24th of June, 1795, the Clark of Harrison Co., ( William Moore )
      issued a license for marriage of John Hamilton and Mary Curry. The minister
      was given as Achilles Easton. By his father's will and gifts. John had
      received about 134 acres of land. In early years of the settlement of
      Kentucky, titles to land were sometime hard to get. Thomas Hamilton had
      bought his land from Holt and McMillan and it was not until 1819 that the
      heirs of Thomas had received a clear title to their inheritance. A record of
      1838 shows that John Hamilton and Mary, his wife divided their land among
      their children. John made his will June 2, 1846. In part it says: Having
      divided my land heretofore John, Joseph C, Nancy Canter, and Elizabeth
      McDaniel, reserving for myself and wife during life, a lot of 16 acres
      including all the buildings, I desire that my said wife shall have the use
      and control of said lot during her life. I give my wife Mary Hamilton all my
      household and kitchen furniture, one cow and all the stock of horses I may
      have on hand to be own and at her disposal. " ----This will was recorded
      July 3, 1848. Joseph C. was named executor.

      On August 30, 1834, a marriage bond was issued to Joseph C. Hamilton, bron
      in 1816 and Mary Morgan, born 1815. The 1850 census shows that Mary Hamilton
      was living in their family and that she was 76 years old and also that she
      born in Virginia also.

      Joseph C. and Mary lived in Harrison Co. Kentucky, on part of the land which
      John had inherited from his father Thomas. To them were born the following
      children: Nancy A., John W., Richard M., Paschal K., James K., Joseph W.,
      Mary S., George G., and Sarah. The youngest child Sarah was born 1850 and
      between that date and 1858, Mary, the wife of Joseph C., died.

      The recrods shows that Joseph C. sold the last of his land to Paschal Kirtly
      in 1858. In this same year, he move to Macon Co. Illinois, where he bought a
      farm.
