Selected Family Documents
The complete set of documents are available to family members and invited researchers. If interested inquire with Glen Hamilton. [email protected]

1)     pdf Historical Sketches of Virginia, Cass County, Illinois - Supplina Judd, William McCord
  This PDF file has a few pages from the book, Historical Sketches of Virginia, Cass County, Illinois. It was published in 1907. The pages are shown that have Supplina Judd's name on the Virginia, IL Voter Rolls in the 1840's. There is a page on Rev. William McCord. William McCord was an early Presbyterian minister who founded a congregation in the area and died in 1833. We suspect that John and Altha Hamilton named one of their twin sons born in 1834, William McCord Hamilton after this person.

4)     pdf History of the Cumberland Presyterian Church, Virginia, Cass County, Illinois
  This document written in 1955 remembers the history of this pioneer church founded in 1827. It is very likely that John and Altha Hamilton were members of this congregation. One of the founding ministers was William McCord. He died in 1833. In 1834 John and Altha named one of their newborn twins William McCord Hamilton, very likely, in honor of Rev. William McCord.
   
5)     pdf History of the Wauconda Cemetery from Trails and Tales of Okanogan County WA
  Laura Harrison shared this scan of an article by Inabel Fish on the history of the Wauconda, WA cemetery. It's very interesting. In this cemetery is interred James Watt Ramsay (grandfather of Elsie Luetta [Galloway] Hamilton) and Effie Galloway (baby sister of Elsie). There is also a Charles Spaulding interred, who we believe is a relation to James Ramsay's wife, Mary Adelaide (Spaulding) Ramsay. There is also mentioned a burial of a baby Galloway in among the 'scattered' graves. This is thought to have been a baby borm to a daughter of Amasa and Elizabeth Galloway who is buried on or near the Galloway homestead in the Wauconda area. The full title of the book this article appears in is: Trails and Tales of The Early-Day Settlers Of North-Eastern Okanagon County Washington.

7)     pdf Indian War Veterans Meeting - June 11, 1887 - Walla Walla, WA
  This PDF file is a scan of page 8 of the Morning Oregonian, Portland, Oregon, published June 12, 1887. In column 2 under the heading: "Washington Territory - PIONEERS AND INDIAN WAR VETERANS" is an article on the meeting of the Veterans and includes a reference to a member, "S Hamilton, private, Co H Oregon Vols., 1855." This "S Hamilton" was Supplina Hamilton our ancestor and veteran of the Yakima Indian War of 1855/56. Supplina served in Company H of the 1st Regiment of the Oregon Mounted Volunteers.

9)     gif James and Mary A. Ramsay: 1900 US Census - Spring Coulee Precinct, Okanagon, Co. WA
  James and Mary Ramsay are the parents of Lily (Galloway/Fee) Ramsay who was the mother of Elsie (Galloway) Hamilton the wife of Maurice Hamilton. They lived in the Taroda Creek area near Wauconda, WA. James died in 1904 and is buried in the Wauconda, WA Cemetary with his infant granddaughter, Effie Galloway. The family remembers James and Mary as having done well and had the luxury of a bank account. In mom's notes, she records the following: "Mary Ramsay had property in California which was sold and had considerable money in the bank, Farmer's State Bank in Tonasket."
   
10)     gif James and Mary A. Ramsay: 1870 US Census - Lyons Township, Cherokee, Co. Kansas
  James and Mary A. (Adelaide) Ramsay (Spaulding) were married but had no children yet in 1870. Mary was only 18. They left for Washington after 1877 as their youngest child, Martha, is listed as 3 years old on the 1880 Census (when they were living near Buckley, WA) and as having been born in Missouri. Their older children are listed on the 1880 census as having been born in Kansas. It would appear then that they moved from Kansas to Mary's home state of Missouri before they emmigrated West to Washington. It is interesting that there is no mention of Martha after the 1880 census. Apparently she died. Lily, their last child was born in 1887 and was 10 years younger than her next older brother, Donald. The loss of Martha (and relative old age of James) may help explain the remembrance of the child Lily as 'the baby and her father's spoilt darling.' This impression was passed onto mom (Julia Hamilton) and recorded in her notes. Lily would eventually be the mother of Elsie (Galloway) Hamilton.

20)     pdf James M Hamilton - Civil War photo and Tribute from the Mason City IOOF
  James M. Hamilton was a son of John and Altha Hamilton and the twin brother of William McCord Hamilton. This document shows a copy of his Civil War photo as a Union soldier. It also shows the tribute published in the Mason City News by his Mason City IOOF lodge members. The text of the tributes confirms (by implication) that James left no wife or children. I assume that the brother they refer to is James' twin William McCord Hamilton. James M Hamilton served with distinction in the Civil War. This photo showing him in uniform must have been taken soon after induction as it shows James in his sergeant's chevrons. James was chosen as 5th Sergeant when Company C, 85 Illinios Infantry was formed in Mason City. James rose to the rank of 2nd Lieutenant. He was captured during the battle of Peach Tree Creek, Georgia on July 19, 1864.
   
21)     pdf James M Hamilton Civil War Service Record
 

James M Hamilton was the twin brother of William McCord Hamilton.  Both were sons of John and Altha (Judd) Hamilton.  The twins were born in Morgan County, Il in 1834.  This PDF document contains pages from the Illinois' Historical Records site, Cyberdrive Illinois, regarding James' service.  We learn that James initially served as a Private in Company K of the 17th Illinois US Infantry from May 25th, 1861 to May 31st, 1862.  James then reenlisted with Company C, 85th Illinois Infantry on July 23, 1862.  He enlisted as a Sergeant along with his brother William McCord Hamilton.  It appears he was promoted to 2nd Lieutenant on March 17th or 30th or 1863 in Nashville, TN and then promoted to 1st Lieutenant on January 1, 1864 at McAfee Church, Georgia.  James was captured by the Confederates during the battle of Peach Tree Creek, GA, near Atlanta.  He was later released in a prisoner exchange and mustered out of the army from Washington, DC on June 5, 1865.

  This 1889 Tacoma and Pierce County, WA directory shows the neighboring families, James & Mary Ramsay and the Stilley's living on their farms at the place name of 'Ma' or Marion in Pierce County just northwest of Buckley. The Ramsay home and farm were valued at $1,932. The Stilley farm was valued at $2,833 (2/3 of that land was valued by Zillow.com in 2009 at $991,000). Also, listed on this page is Charles W. Spaulding and CW. Spaulding & Co. both of Buckley. It's certainly possible (likely) that this could have been Mary (Spaulding) Ramsay's brother (also known as Charles W. Spaulding). Charle's property value is listed at $4,690 and that of the company at $1,740. Charles Spaulding followed to Ramsay's and Stilleys to Okanogan County and died there in 1928.

27)     gif James W. and Mary A. Ramsay: 1880 US Census - Puyallup Valley, Pierce, Co. WA
  James, Mary and family are found in the Puyallup Valley Precinct in 1880. The census taker got James' age wrong (he was 19 years older than Mary). Family stories put them in the vacinity of Buckley, WA at this time raising hops and quite prosperous. Speaking of hops production in the Buckley / Enumclaw plateau here is an excerpt from Historylink.org that speaks of that era: "The plateau developed as a farming area. For some farmers, growing hops (used in beer-making) brought prosperity: In the 1880s and early 1890s the area experienced what might be called a hop craze. But then a local infestation of hop lice and a drop in the world commodity market caused many farmers to turn to dairy, and dairy farming remains a major industry. Farmers found ready markets for their produce with railroad workers and in the mining communities of Franklin, Cumberland, and Black Diamond that border on the plateau." The Stilley Family: It's interesting to note that per the 1880 Census (in the Puyallup Valley) and in the 1900 Census (near Wauconda) (the 1890 Census was lost to fire) that James and Mary were living right next to Jeremiah and Maria(h) Stilley and their large family. Mom (Julia Hamilton) writes in her family history notes that James and Mary were friends of the Stilleys and that the two families travelled together via covered wagons. Mom's notes record how when they moved from Pierce County to Wauconda in North Central, Washington they had to ford all the rivers with their wagons. They must have been very close friends to spend 25+ years as neighbors and move together.
