      "There was a John R. Hamilton and a John Hamilton listed in the 1840Jackson County census. The second man's house had a number of youngmales that would match John and Martha Buchanan Hamilton's family.

      PLEASE NOTE: NOTE THE SUGGESTED VERIFICATION OF THE FAMILY LINE FROMFRANKLIN & ELIZA A. ELKINS HAMILTON TO JAMES MCHAFFEY & HANNAH COCHRANRAMSAY HAMILTON: ***The guardian records of Parke County show that on10 Nov.1846, Robert S. Hamilton was appointed guardian of (nephews andnieces) Norval, Franklin, Allen, Wallace, Warren, Mary D., and EzekielHamilton, all children of Robert's brother, John W. Hamilton,deceased. (Park County guardianship book 1)." And the Biography forRobert S. Hamilton specifically states his parents are James McHaffey& Hannah Cochran Ramsay Hamilton as well. THIS MAKES JOHN W.HAMILTON'S PARENTS JAMES L. MCHAFFEY & HANNAH COCHRAN (RAMSEY RAMSAY)HAMILTON ALSO. The Biography of Samuel Ramsay Hamilton also providesthe same parents names plus, it also adds much more information on theHamilton Family history. Norval Hamilton's biography also providesthe same parents and indicates Norval and Fanklin's relationship asbrothers. So, with census records and the biographies, the line ofFranklin Hamilton has been established here in America to hisgrandfather James McHaffey Hamilton of County Tyrone, Ulster, Irelandand to his grandmother Hannah Cochran Ramsay Hamilton of HuntingtonCounty, Pennsylvania.---Please refer to Norval Hamilton's biography aswell.
