      NOTE:
      AS YOU CAN SEE FROM THE INFORMATION BELOW THAT THERE ARE SOME AGEISSUES WITH THE BIOGRAPHY FOR SAMUEL RAMSEY HAMILTON, GRANDSON OF*"HAMILTON". IT MUST REALLY BE SAMUEL RAMSEY HAMILTON'S GREATGRANDFATHER, NOT HIS GRANDFATHER THEN THAT FOUGHT IN THE BATTLE OF THEBOYNE. OF COURSE, A LOT MORE RESEARCH NEEDS TO BE DONE AS YET, BUTTHIS INFORMATION HAS BEEN A BIG CLUE IN THE WHERE-A-BOUTS OF THEFAMILY IN IRELAND AND A LOCATION WHERE THEY MAY HAVE SETTLED THERE.

      GRANDSON, Samuel Ramsey Hamilton, OF *JOHN HAMILTON--EXCERPT OFBIOGRAPHY STATED ONLY "6" SONS.
      "HAMILTON, S.R. farmer, Portland Mills, is one of Greene Township'searliest settlers. He was born in Bourbon County, Kentucky, Mary 17,1797, and is the son of James and Hannah (RAMSEY) Hamilton. Theformer was born in Tyrone, Ireland, and came to America in 1781.S.R. Hamilton's paternal grandfather had six sons, all of whom he sentto America but the youngest, who joined in the revolution of 1688, andwas forced to flee the country for his life.... Mr. S.R. Hamilton'sgrandfather fought in the memorable battle of the Boyne, under WilliamIII, in 1690. " SOURCE:http://www.rootsweb.com/~inparke/Biographies/HParkeBiographies.htm"NOTE: The statement of the six sons has not been verified. The sonsnames have been given as, Thomas, Benjamin, Henry, William, and Johnby some researchers; However, this compiler has found no connection todate. [SLJuhl, Compiler]

      "BOYNE, BATTLE OF THE,; SOURCE: Funk and Wagnalls Encyclopedia
      important engagement of the Glorious Revolution in England fought onthe banks of the Boyne river in Ireland on July 12, 1690, the battlewas waged between troops of the exiled James II former king of Englandand the forces of the Netherlands ruler William of Orange who had beenproclaimed William III. king of England and Ireland in 1689. Toprevent James from regaining the throne, William, led an army of about35, 000 men to Ireland where James was ensconced with 21, 000 of hissupporters. In the subsequent engagement on the Boyne, James suffereda complete defeat, losing 1500 men, with William losing only 500: hereturned to exile in France. " "Boyne River, 70 mi (113 km) E Irelandin Leinster flowing to Irish Sea S of Drogheda." SOURCE: Webster'sDictionary.

      These Hamilton's do fit the time frame of the Battle of the Boyne in1690. It could very well have been the sons of John Sr. Hamilton whowere sent to America. Of course, a lot more research needs to bedone as yet. The information below was the closest possible tofinding the Hamilton's who were living in Strabane, County Tyrone,Ulster Plantation, Ireland during the c.1660s-1700s. I did note thenames of the three gentlemen listed here and they are very similar tothe six sons listed under John Jr. Hamilton. I do feel that thesefour gentlemen are related, however this is only a possible sketch atthis time. SLJuhl, compiler.

      NOTE: THIS IS JUST AN EARLY IDEA OF WHERE THE HAMILTON & MOORE'S INIRELAND LIVED, THE STRABANE, FOYLE, COUNTY TYRONE AREA, ULSTERPLANTATION, IRELAND. THEY REMAINED PRESBYTERIANS.
      "County Tyrone--, [page 188]. The Stinsons, Hamiltons, and Savageswere closely allied,...[page 191].
      The Foyle, made broad by the union of two streams, flows by Lifford onthe Donegal side, and the Strabane on the Tyrone side (James L.McHaffey Hamilton's birth place), northward between the counties untilit approaches the city of Londonderry. There the county ofLondonderry seems to throw itself across the Foyle to encompass thecity. These twenty miles of the Foyle from Strabane to the city draina territory which has been a nursery of strong men "who fought nakedfor King William, our liberties, our religion, and all that was dearto us."
