I know you've posted this message before; I noticed it then too. Several of
your family names were "red flags" to me, as they are in my family line too.
My original HAMILTON immigrant ancestor was an Archibald HAMILTON who was
married to Frances CALHOUN in Tyrone, North Ireland. They came to Lancaster
PA in 1733 with Archibald's brother Andrew HAMILTON and his wife Martha; also
Andrew and Archibald's sister Martha who married a James HENDERSON after she
Archibald and Frances moved to Orange County VA in 1735; the part where they
were became Augusta County VA by 1738, and they settled on Christian's Creek
in Augusta County VA and stayed there the rest of their lives (he died in
1794). They had the following children: Letitia, Audley, Andrew, Frances,
William, John, Archibald Jr. William, John and Letitia stayed in Augusta
County VA; Andrew and Audley moved to Upcountry SC (Andrew sooner, Audley
later); Archibald went to KY.
No one from that branch of the family went to NC.
Maybe the family you are looking for are children of Archibald's brother
Andrew and his wife Martha in Lancaster PA. Audley was the name of Archibald
and Andrew's father, and Letitia was the name of their grandmother.
