I've read your note about "Hamilton" with some interest in the
Notes portion where you mention Halifax, VT.
I haven't been able to follow who is where from your message,
we have a Dunakin family at Halifax during the same time period
you mention. Dunakin is not a name that is widespread and neither
is Halifax very large. We have met a dead end there regarding how
the Dunakins might have gotten to that place.
Have you been there? There is a small well kept cemetery and you
must already know that the town clerk is very accomodating.
It appears that the Dunakin name originates at a place called Dun
Haakon on the Isle of Skye in Scotland as that is the only
connection that we've been able to make. Makes one wonder how the
Dunakins and Hamiltons might have came to the same small town.
