John and Martha Greer Hamilton were my third great grandparents. He was born 1770/75, probably in South Carolina, possibly in York Co. SC. He married Martha Greer in the late 1790s, and they lived in (probably) the Pendleton District SC at least from 1800 to 1810. Five children were born there: Susannah, William Greer, Ann, Nancy, and David Montgomery. Then they moved to Lincoln Co. TN and had a sixth child: Margaret Greer Hamilton. Allied names with this family: Reid, Greer, Blair, Taylor, Morton, and Wyatt.
Their farm was in the area of Swan Creek, west of the town of Fayetteville. John Hamilton was killed by a falling tree in 1812. John and Martha are buried in the Wyatt - Wilson Cemetery. There is a field stone with the initials J.H. for John's grave.
