Classification: Query
Surnames: HAMILTON WOODS BENNINGTON
I'm researching the James HAMILTON family who settled in Ohio before 1820. I'm looking for resources and ancestors.

Here's what I know:

I'm in search of more info on the James HAMILTON family who settled in Ohio by 1820. I'm looking for resources and the ancestry of this man.

Here's what I know:

Descendants of James HAMILTON

Generation 1

1. JAMES1 HAMILTON was born about 1770 reportedly in Vermont or Ireland. He died in 1828 reportedly in Brownsville, Greene, Ohio. He married ANN WOODS, daughter of James WOODS and Catherine ALLEN. She was born about 1780 in Washington, Pennsylvania, USA. She died in probably in Indiana.

Notes for James HAMILTON:

Was James from Ireland, Vermont or Pennsylvania before he moved to Ohio?

From: "The James Woods family of Pennsylvania and Ohio: an account of the descendents of Allen Sr., Samuel Sr., and Nathaniel Sr., the three sons of James Woods, 1736-1942" by Nellie Whedon Woods, published 1942:

"Anne Woods, youngest child of James and Catherine (Allen) Woods, gddau. of William Woods b. abt. 1780 in Pa.; m. in Ohio to James Hamilton. After several years they went to Indiana, county unknown; had a numerous family, names unknown. Colonel Woods remembered when the Hamilton's moved to Indiana and saw one or two or the boys afterward, but the Hamilton and Donaldson descendants are unknown to the present generations of the Woods family.

The History of Brown County says: "James Hamilton came very early in the century; married a daughter of James Woods but after awhile moved farther west.

Is also says that Alexander Hamilton, a native of Tyrone, Ireland, is believed to have been the first settler in Lewis Twp., sold his claim in 1795, left in 1803 and d. in Ross Co., in 1830. He had 5 c. and the earliest married in 1803. It appears that he came earlier than James Hamilton, tho he may have been his father."

There are four James HAMILTONs in Vermont in 1800, three in Sandgate Twp., Bennington Co., and one in Bridport, Addison Co.

In 1810 there is a James in Mt. Holly Twp., Rutland Co.

I would think that Ann WOODS HAMILTON probably died in Indiana not Ohio. I also think that they lived in Brown Co., Ohio not Licking or Greene. It is also possible that James HAMILTON came through or lived in Pennsylvania before he moved to Ohio. Ann's parents settled in Brown Co.


From: http://worldconnect.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op...

"Samuel was born the year his parents came to this country, and later two more children were added to the home circle, Nathaniel and Anne. The latter married James Hamilton, and they became the parents of a large family. They finally removed to Indiana…..

…..Mr. Donaldson, already spoken of, also removed to Ohio, and settled on Eagle Creek. Grandfather Woods, after the death of his first wife, joined his parents and brother on Straight Creek, and there the parents, both of whom had reached an advanced age, died within a few weeks of each other, in the early part of 1823. The Hamiltons also removed to Ohio, and thence to Indiana." Removed from where?
