I am searching for information on ROBERT W. HAMILTON of Hartford, CT
I do not have a D.O.B. or D.O.D.
Robert was a mechanical engineer and was hired by Edward Allis Company
of Milwaukee Wisconsin and was moved to Milwaukee in 1874 to design the
pumping apparatus for the new waterworks in Milwaukee. I have
documentation to that and have found much information on his son, James
F.T. Hamilton 1854-1910 who also was an engineer for the waterworks.
A Robert Hamilton shows up in the CT census of 1850 but NOT in 1860
As an aside, Robert was nearly a neighbor of Charles Apthorpe Hamilton,
having lived just a few blocks away and during the same period of time.
Perhaps they were related?
Does anyone have information on this line of Hamiltons?
Thanks to all!
Patrick B. Hamilton
