Ben M. Hamilton is recorded in 1880 census for Yell Co, AR (Upper Lafave) as born in SC abt 1825. His wife (possibly Nancy or Laura Ann) is not listed so is presumed to have died. There seems to be a striking similarity to the Benjamin M. Hamilton from Dooly Co, GA, and children still with Ben in 1880 were born in GA. I could use some help on this family, if there are connections out there. Below is my conjecture about the family, but a great deal is simple deductive reasoning (or informed guessing maybe.) My belief is the following.

(Weak guess)

Ervin Hamilton (1793 NC - ?) (parts of NC were later SC at this time)
+ ?

1) Benjamin M. Hamilton (1823 SC - aft 1880 Yell Co, AR)
+ Nancy ? (possibly Laura Ann) (? SC - bef 1880)
2) Redick P. Hamilton (1828 GA - aft 1880 probably Bradford Co, FL)
+ Rebecca Palmer (? GA - ?) (married 1850 in Dooly Co, GA)
3) Ashley B. Hamilton (1829 - ?) (married 1852 in Dooly Co, GA)
+ Paulina D. Outlaw (?-?)

(pretty likely true)
1a) ? Hamilton (1848 GA - ?)
1b) ?female Hamilton ( abt 1850 GA - ?)
1c) John M. Hamilton (May 1855 - ? I think TX, but not sure)
1d) James Adolphus Hamilton (Oct 7, 1861 GA - Jun 19, 1912 Williamson Co, TX) (Married 1890 Garland Co, AR)
+Rhiney Jane Moore (Dec 22, 1871 Hot Springs Co, AR - Dec 27, 1927 Williamson Co, TX)
1e) Gideon Andrew Hamilton (Jun 17, 1864 GA or TN? - Feb 26, 1953 Jenks, Tulsa Co, OK) (married 1884 in Yell Co, AR or TX?)
+Alice Kinser (Apr 6, 1866 TN - Nov 18, 1931 Jenks, Tulsa Co, OK)
1f) William Henry Hamilton (jul 19, 1866 ? - ?)

1d1) Nancy Jane Hamilton (Jun 12, 1891 Garland Co, AR - Mar 1945 Williamson Co, TX)
+ Horace Bishop Anderson (Feb 10, 1892 Williamson Co, TX - Aug 10, 1974 TX)
(this family well documented)
1d2) Geride E. Hamilton (Oct 1892 AR - ?) (probably typo and actually same as 1d3)
1d3) Gordie Emileen Hamilton (Oct 16, 1893 - Dec 14, 1968 Austin, Travis Co, TX)
+ Mark Lee Moore (Nov 12, 1889 Garland Co, AR - Feb 5, 1932 Orange Co, CA) (married Burnet Co, TX 1915) (one child Selma Etta Moore Sep 9, 1915 - ?, etc.)
+ Richard Shuffiedl
+James Jennings
1d4) Herbert Dolphus Hamilton (Oct 1895 Williamson Co, TX - 1967)
+ Ruth Staton (Jul 10, 1902 - Dec 1987 Williamson Co, TX) (two children Paul and Pauline, at least)
1d5) John Mayberry Hamilton (Oct 7, 1898 Williamson Co, TX - Nov 16, 1972) (married 1922)
+Verna Atwood
1d6) Myrtle Hamilton (Mar 1899 Tx - ?
1d7) Mary Elizabeth Hamilton (Dec 21, 1900 Williamson Co, TX - Mar 4, 1993 Hays Co, TX) (married 1917 Williamson Co, TX)
+Luther Elbert Buck (1901 AR - Jan 14, 1975 Travis Co, TX) (Mildred, Ruby, and ? children, at least)
1d8) Maley Dora Hamilton (Dec 31, 1901 TX - Jun 17, 1902 Tx)

1e1) Melvin Theodore Hamilton (Jan 11, 1884 - Apr 1966 Jenks, Tulsa Co, OK)
1e2) Mary Isabel Hamilton (Aug 13, 1886 Williamson Co, TX - Feb 16, 1967 Tulsa Co, OK) (married 1904 LeFlore Co, Indian Terr/OK)
+Robert Lee Berry (Oct 17, 1878 Sebastian Co, AR - May 2, 1966 Tulsa Co, OK) (Reba Susie, Rubert Leon, Lloyd Lawrence, Isaac, Melvin, and Jame Olen children)
1e3) Andrew W. Hamilton (Mar 22, 1887 - ?)
1e4) Valerie Beatrice Hamilton (Feb 14, 1891 - ?)
1e5) Ida Hamilton (Aug 22, 1894 - ?)
1e6) John Hamilton (Sep 16, 1897 - ?)
1e7) Zedna Hamiilton (May 15, 1901 - ?)
1e8) Della Hamilton (Oct 17, 1903 - ?)

As I said, some of this especially the connection to Ervin Hamilton and probable sons Redrick Hamilton and Ashley Hamilton, is speculative. Does this family sound familiy to anyone? Is this even true?

Thanks,

Hurston Anderson
