Another family to be noticed is the Hamilton family. This is an old family in the county, never
noted for being over-pretentious, but plain, honest hard-working people. As known to the writer,
there were two brothers, William and John, in the prime of life a hundred years ago; don't know to
whom either of them was married. Of William Hamilton and the family the writer knows more than of
John and his family. William had two sons, Whittington and William.
Of old man John Hamilton's family, the writer knows but little; he had two sons, John and
Tristram, both are dead.
