Hamilton's of Tennessee, Mississippi, Kentucky and Arkansas around the 18th Century

Journal by NBR2017

I am in search of my great-grandfather John Thomas Hamilton's ancestry.

My great-grandfather John Thomas Hamilton's obituary says that his father immigrated from Scotland to Tennessee, it also states that President Andrew Johnson was his cousin and boyhood playmate. He was a preacher who lived to be 104, and was Faulkner County Arkansas' oldest living resident at the time.

It is said that my grandfather Henry Daniel Hamilton would always brag about being related to Alexander Hamilton.

My great-grandfather John Thomas Hamilton married his second wife Sarah Elizabeth Tallent in 1887.
They are interned at St. Mary's Cemetery in Rosebud Arkansas.
Monument HAMILTON, J.T. 1828-1932 & Betty 1855-1923

His first wife's name may have been Nancy, she was full blooded Cherokee Indian.

John Thomas Hamilton (1827–1932) Great-grandfather
BIRTH 6 SEP 1827 • Dandridge, Jefferson County, Tennessee, USA

Sarah Elizabeth Tallent (1862–1923) Great-grandmother
BIRTH 26 OCT 1862 • Calhoun County, Mississippi, USA
DEATH 2 SEP 1923 • Faulkner, Arkansas, USA

John Thomas Hamilton had (4) children that I am aware of thus far:

Robert Price Hamilton (1873–1962) Great-uncle
BIRTH 21 APRIL 1873 • Dandridge, Jefferson, Tennessee, USA
DEATH 7 DEC 1962 • Rosebud, White, Arkansas, USA

Alma Hamilton (1889–1918) Great-aunt

Samuel Hamilton (1898–1968) Great-uncle
BIRTH 16 OCT 1898 • Arkansas, USA
DEATH 1968 • Arkansas, USA

Winfred Dean Hamilton Sr. (1935–1989) Father
BIRTH 21 SEP 1935 • Faulkner County, Arkansas, USA
DEATH 24 MAY 1989 • Houston, Harris County, Texas, USA

Having grown up in foster care I never knew my family; I have been searching for my family's heritage my entire life. Now in my mid-fifties, my need to know has turned into a desperate obsession as I feel time is running out.
