Death: Apr. 11, 1862
Haralson County

Brotherhood of Man, by Lewin D McPherson, published 1939, gives information on her ancestry, marriage and children. She was the daughter of George & Jane (Gaston) Reid and married John Lewis Hamilton. Page 12 gives that John Lewis Hamilton moved from Gwinnett to Carroll (now Haralson) Co GA in 1829. He served as a guard in Capt Wagoun's Co in removing the Cherokee Indians from GA. He died near San Augustine TX at the home of his daughter, Margaret Ann (Hamilton) Knight while on a visit there by horseback in 1874. His remains were buried in Denning Country grave yard near her home. Margaret Reid Hamilton had died in Haralson Co GA 11 Apr 1862 and was buried near her home in the family buring ground near old "Hamilton Mill" site. Their son, George Reid "G R" Hamilton suitably marked both graves with monuments. (DHZ - Denning is a city in San Augustine Co TX. Please note that 1809 was not a leap year, therefore her birth date seems to be in error.)

She was the mother of Jane Hamilton Jordan, George Reid Hamilton, Archibald Hamilton, Robert Hamilton, William Hamilton, Matthew Thompson Hamilton, John Hamilton, Margaret Hamilton Knight, and Lucinda Oregon Hamilton McPherson. Five of her sons served in the Civil War, 3 whom died as a result.
