I'm enjoying your posts as always. You mention Wakefield on this one. Can you
tell me something more about the person?
Also, I'm working on the Hamilton line, My great grandmother was Eliza
Abagail Hamilton Pledger. She and her husband came to Hill Co., TX after the
Civil War from GA. I'm trying to trace back past her father, John Hamilton,
born 1780 Abbeville Dist., SC. He died 1837 Bartow Co., GA. We think his
father was Robert Hamilton. Now, I'm learning that a Robert Hamilton was very
active in the Revolutionary War and helped with the tar and feathering of a
Tory govenor, Thomas Brown. Robert was a Col. in the Sons of Thunder. Can
you enlighten me about this happening? This lady that wrote me also said that
Robert Hamilton was closely associated with a Charles McElroy that also
I will appreciate hearing from you again.
