    • Sue Tong - Thought to be father of Henry and Andrew Hamilton.
      Buried in same cemetery as both of above (Locust Grove, Adams Co., Ohio)

      Keith Kermoade, Joan Shacklette - birth 24 Aug 1778 - VA
      Mary Hamilton Kelley - 24 July 1778 - Ky

      TR Hamilton -

      William received a deed ( Deed Boook 2. page 111 ) on 13 March 1806 for 75
      acres of land he inherited from his father, Thomas ( Hambleton ) Hamilton.
      On September 7 1808, William sold the 75 acres for $450.00 ( Deed Book 2
      page 370 ). In the deed recording the sale, William's wife was identified as
      Elizabeth, and the couple was listed as living in Adams Co. Ohio in 1808.
      The marriage records in Harrison Co. ,Kentucky list the marriage of a
      William Hamilton to an Elizabeth Bever( Bevers, Beaver, Beavers ) on January
      31, 1803. The marriage license was cosigned by Mathias Bever Jr. who appears
      to have been a brother of Elizabeth.

      According to the Harrison Co. tax records, the Bever family was one of the
      neighbors of the Hamilton family. From other recods, it appears that several
      members of the Bever family had moved to Adams Co. Ohio, and William and
      Elizabeth Hamilton also moved there along with her relatives.

      William and Elizabeth Hamilton are both buried in the Locust Grove Cemetery
      in Adams Co., Ohio. William died December 22,1857 at the age of 79 years 4
      months, 28 days. Elizabeth died on January 13, 1858 at the age 77 years, 4
      months, and 29 days.

      ------------
      born either Ky or Va.
