Anyone have information on John D. Hamilton?

+1 vote

I would like to join!  Have many ancestors, some I've found, some I am searching for. 

My #1 search right now is for my 3rd Great Grandfather; John D. (David?) Hamilton b. 1829 in Tyrone, Galway, Ireland and d. March 2, 1886 in Ironton, Lawrence, Ohio, USA.  He married Narcissa Sarah (Cartwright) Hamilton

I've looked at Oliver and Jane (MacFadden) Hamilton as possible parents, however they have a son named John that married Jane who lived and died in Scotland. 

I've also found that there are 3 John D. Hamilton's around the same time frame and same area, so not sure which one is the correct one.

Ironton, is the county seat in Lawrence County, where John Hamilton is buried. The name of the cemetery is (something I can't read) Furnace, near Ironton, Lawrence Co., OH.

FamilySearch also has a Ohio County death record for him.  (sorry not at home so I can attach the link) that indicates he died from consumption.

FamilySearch also indicates that he had a Civil War veteran grave stone.  Have you ordered his pension record from the National Archives?  If his widow applied for him, she may have known some details about his parentage.  I ordered my 2x great-grandfather's records which had a lot of interesting info including witness names to people (usually relatives) who knew about their marriage and backgrounds.
