Well now I'm a little more interested because while my grandmother was from Drumawark
near Pettigo, my grandfather was from Ballintra. I have Alexander Stewart born about 1823
in Tullylagan Inver Donegal married to Jane Glenn of Ballydermot. The Glenn family
married into my Dixon family.

Wow, that is a very extensive genealogy of the Hamilton family.
They started in Scotland, early on some were in the Belfast area and
Comber. Then some lived in Killyleagh Castle, north of Newry, even today?
But some moved to what what become the Brown Hall Estate of 20,000 acres
near Ballintra, Co. Donegal, about 30 miles from Pettigo. You might want

Here is an article about his grandson John b.1800 Brown Hall.
Now, not all Hamilton's were rich, but most were related in some way back
in time to this group.
