I am a complete brick wall for Dorcas (Cox) Hamilton; b. abt 1814 in Tennessee, m. Henry Jordan Hamilton also b. Tennessee abt 1804.  Their marriage information is unknown as is their parentage.  This family settled in the area of Washington, Hempstead County Arkansas before 1850 (Henry J. Hamilton and Darla (sic) C. Hamilton with five children; James H., William, Andrew J, Sarah E.and Wm. T.  They are my 3rd Great Grandparents.  Any hints or even a family tree?  will be so deeply appreciated.
