Hamiltons of Tennessee

I'm looking for information on the Hamilton family of Putnam, White, Cumberland and possibly Overton County of Tennessee. According to the one court document I have located they came from South Carolina to Tennessee in the very early 1800's. I do know that some of them ended up in Kentucky and some of the distant family in Florida and recently found out some went to Indiana in the 1930's but that's where I'm stuck. Also stuck about my great-grandfathers last name being Hamilton when his mother claimed her maiden name was Hamilton (and all census records show that) and she was shown living with her parents in all census records who were also Hamilton's. My great-grandfather, although, born in 1876 never showed up in any census until he was grown and married and nowhere on any paperwork does he show a father's name, only his mother "Amanda" who later in life married a George Smith and moved to Kentucky. My whole family is a mystery to me and although I believe my great-grandfather was born out of wedlock none of the remaining older family members will admit to it and have even gone as far as to make up a name of my great grandfathers father. Interesting isn't it? Anyway my great grandfathers name was Robert E Lee Hamilton so if anyone has any information on the TN Hamiltons from the counties listed above please pass it on.....
