"WILLIAM HAMILTON, farmer, P.O. Gnadenhutten, was born in this county September 5, 1808, son of Thomas and Mary Ann Hamilton. Thomas Hamilton emigrated to this county in 1804, and was married the year following.

William was raised on his father's farm, and received a common school education. He was married, December 14, 1834, to Maria James, daughter of Charles and Hannah James. This marriage was blessed with seven children--Mathias Taylor, who served four years in Company I, Thirtieth Ohio Volunteer Infantry; Matilda Jane, wife of Samuel Johnson; Hannah, wife of William F. Rogers; Louisa, deceased; Mary, wife of Elza H. Parrish; Martha, deceased; and Celinda Ann, the wife of Charles B. Cox.

Mrs. Hamilton died in February, 1850, and in the following November Mr. Hamilton was united in marriage with Ellen, daughter of John L. and Matilda Kennedy. The children by this marriage are John B., Maria Ellen (wife of J. H. Hill), Joseph A., William McAbee, Sarah Alice, Charles Winfield, James Wesley, Ida Emery and Bessie Luella.

Both Mr. and Mrs. Hamilton are members of the Methodist Episcopal Church, in which he has been Trustee for thirty-eight years, and Steward and Class-leader for over forty years, and served as a Justice of the Peace twenty-four years in Clay Township. Mr. Hamilton settled on his present farm of 204 acres in 1835."
