Philip Schuyler Hamilton
Birth: Jan. 22, 1783
Albany
Albany County
New York, USA
Death: Nov. 23, 1801
Weehawken
Hudson County
New Jersey, USA

Eldest and favorite son of Alexander Hamilton and his wife, Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton. Grandson of General Philip Schuyler. Philip was killed in a duel, on almost exactly the same spot where his father was to be struck by Aaron Burr's bullet three years later, in Weehawken, New Jersey. Hamilton never recovered from his son's death and, when he and "Betsey" welcomed their eighth and last child after Philip's death, they named the little boy Philip, in memory of his elder brother. Philip is buried in Trinity Churchyard in lower Manhattan, not far from the graves of his parents and the grave of his celebrated aunt, Angelica Schuyler Church.
