Looking for David Hamill and his wife Martha McKee, who were born in Ireland around 1790. They had at least one daughter, Mary Hamill born May 12, 1814 who married John Holmes and emigrated to Canada.

I am searching for David Hamill of Belfast, Ireland. Born around 1825...not sure. Could be related to the David Hamill you were searching for. This David was the great grandfather of my Grandfather. We know he settled in PA, moved to TN...Chattanooga area we think. Married a Dutch girl who had come from NC to TN. My grandfather was Milo Wyrick Hamill (born 7-27-1888). He lived in So. Pittsburg, TN, near Chattanooga.
A reply would be appreciated.

Lynda,
Im looking through old papers that my g.father Daniel Benjamin Hamill,Jr of Chattanooga had when he was researching our lineage. Sounds like youve got the same info as me. Not sure though.John J Hamill was my great great grandfather and he had a brother Milo Smith that married Anna E, according to my papers. Their parents Daniel Best Hamill and Mary Jones.
Let me know if this is familiar to you I have lots of papers I am try to read through.

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 lyndaj1956@gmail.com
Thanks for the exciting news in your message on ancestory.com!!

Amy, there is a Patricia Hamill on Ancestory.com who found a lot of info from a book by Goodspeed called "History of Tennessee." You may be able to find it in your public library. Do you live in Chattanooga? I was very serious about attending a Hamill reunion. If you have any info on that, please let me know.
I also ran across a listing of all government officials from the 1700's and 1800's for Hamilton County/Chattanooga and a Hamill (forgot first name) served as a Registrar. Was your great grandfather a gov't official?

I realize it has been 12 years since your posting, but I think we are both looking into the same family. I have been researching a Daniel Hamill of County Monaghan, who married a Martha McKee in Ireland in 1806. They had a daughter Mary Hamill, baptized in April 1814. Where did you get the birthdate of May 12, 1814? The family emigrated to Canada around 1830, where they ended up in Cartwright Township, Durham, Ontario. Mary Hamill marries John Holmes and continues to live in Cartwright. Sounds like the same family, though the father is named Daniel and was somewhat older, being born in the 1770's.

Amy, have you gotten any further with your Hamill research? Milo Smith and Anna E. were my great grandparents. Daniel Best and Mary Jones Hamill were my
great-greats. Samuel Hamill was Daniel's father,and married to Katherine Best. I have Robert Hammolle and Jane Ferguson as parents of Samuel. Nathaniel as father of Robert. I found a note in my grandfather and great grandfather's (Milo Smith Hamill) Bible saying that my granddad's great grandfather was David Hamill..????? What do you have?
Do the Hamill's have a reunion!!? Would love to hook up.

I know some of these posts are a few months old but I want to offer my help to those of you looking for Hamills in the Chattanooga TN area. I am a direct descendant of Samuel Hamill and Katherine Best of Blunt County TN. My lineage is Samuel-to-Robert Henry-to-George Washington-to-Ephraim James-to-Robert Washington-to-Danny Ray-to-me. As far as I know the Chattanooga Hamill family to not have organized reunions at this time (maybe one could be planned in future). I have a copy of our family tree book with a lot of names and information in it as well as any needed information back to my great grandfather Ephraim James Hamill (EJ). If you would like to get in touch with me I would be more than happy to share what information I have. My email is mtsu262@gmail.com
