ALEXANDER HAMILTON


(Dr. Alexander Hamilton) was one of Canada's great statesmen, a man who endeared the name to all citizens of the Dominion. (Dr. Hamilton) transferred his allegiance to the United States and came to Texas in 1875, bringing his wife and three sons with him. He took charge of the U. S. Marine Hospital at Corpus Christi in 1875 and remained there until his death in 1882. The Spohn family, his mother's ancestors, became prominent in Corpus Christi, where Dr. Arthur E. Spohn was the founder of the Spohn Hospital and a very eminent surgeon.
