My assumption is that Doll is a nickname, but I cannot imagine what it could be if shortened. (Rudolph, Adolph, ???) Has anyone run into this nickname elsewhere?
My ggrandfather was known always as "Doll" Hamilton. The only information I have on him is from the Williamson Co, TX census of 1900 where he was listed as Dole Hamilton. Actually, I cannot be certain the actual spelling, but from family tradition I do know the pronunciation is like the last name "Dahl". He was born November 1859 in GA and lived for a time in AR because his wife Rena J. ? and he were married there, she was born there and his first two children were born in AR. About 1893 or 1894 he, wife, and youngest two moved to Williamson Co, TX where they remained for some time. I am not sure where or when Doll or Rena Hamilton died, but several children and descendants remained in Williamson Co, TX.
Below is the family as I know it.
Doll Hamilton (1859 GA - ?)
Rena J. ? (1871 AR - ?)
1) Nancy Jane Hamilton (Jan 1891 AR - abt 1940 TX)
Horace Bishop Anderson (Feb 1892 TX - 1974 TX)
(Zetha Lee Anderson, Lillian Lucille Anderson (Beam) , Thomas Earl Anderson, Vina May Anderson (Belk), Amey Charlotte Anderson (Wills), James Hardy Anderson, Charles Bishop Anderson)
2) Geride E. Hamilton (oct 1892 - ?)
3) Herbert D. Hamilton (Oct 1895 TX - ?)
Ruthie Staton (July 1902 - Dec 1987 TX)
(Paul Hamilton, Pauline Hamilton (?))
4) Myrtle Hamilton (mar 1899 TX - ?)
I have am a descendant of Horace Bishop Anderson and Nancy Jane Hamilton and have contacts there, but would like to know more about others.
