Amy! I am so excited to hear from you... Sounds like we are related. Milo Smith Hamill was my great grandfather. His wife was Anna. Their son Milo Wyrick Hamill lived in South Pittsburg, TN. His son, Charles William Hamill was my dad. He passed away May 7, 2009 at the age of 86. Yes, Daniel Best Hamill and Mary Jones are familiar to me as is Daniel's father Samuel who came from Blount County. He was married to a Catherine Best whose family had come from Holland..Samuel's father was I think David Hamill from Belfast, Ireland. Do your records show that? I would love to meet you and see some of the papers you have or you could call or email me. Did your grandfather put together an extensive family tree?
Do the Chattanooga Hamill's have reunions? I would love to attend one. I am 65, married and moved from Kingston, TN to Augusta, GA in the early 70's.
My phone number is 707 699 6543. email firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for the exciting news in your message on ancestory.com!!
