Henrietta Maria Hamilton is the daughter of John Hamilton (9 Jun 1789 - 7 Aug 1872) and Elizabeth M. McNutt (23 Mar 1794 - 7 Apr 1871). She was born and grew up 5 miles easst of Lexington and 12 miles north of Natural Bridge. From 7 am to 5 or 6 pm, she attended the Oldfield school house until age 14, when she was sent to Ann Smith Academy, a girls boarding school.

She married Leander James McCormick on 22 Oct 1845 at her parents home at Locust Hill in Rockbridge County, Virginia, at 5pm. Rev. B.L. Brown officiated. She described him as "6' in height, well=proportioned, perfectly healthy, with abundant dark hair, hazel eyes, and full black beard."

They had 4 children:
Robert Hall McCormick, 6 Sep 1847
Elizabeth Maria McCormick, 2 May 1850
Henrietta Laura McCormick, 22 Apr 1857
Leander Hamilton McCormick, 27 May 1859

Mrs. Henrietta Hamilton McCormick's photo is between page 318 and 319, plus after page 322 unnumbered, Henrietta Hamilton McCormick, in the Family Record and Biography, by Leander James McCormick, 1896, copyrighted again in 2010. It is also in her work, Genealogies and Reminiscences, Chicago, 1897, containing McCormick and related personal and family genealogical history. My copies of both works were autographed, dated and given by Leander to my kin, with it dedicated to her inside.
