William James Bud Hamilton
b: 28 FEB 1857
d: 8 DEC 1931
Biography
My journey researching the Hamilton family started many years ago when a cousin, Brenda Hoots, gave me a file with the family tree. The file contained research that had been done over the years by her and others and is the basis for what I have today.
However, I have always had questions about the information and am still hopeful that one day I will find the answers.
My made questions surround Wm Hamilton and his son/wife. Was William Hamilton (1791 - 1857) really the father of William James Bud Hamilton who was born in 1857?
My concerns about these relationships come from the following questions. If anyone has an answer to any of these, please contact me.
1) His listed fathers date of death is one month before he was born.
2) His father would have been 66 years of age when he was born. With his mother being age 31.
3) Wm. Hamilton (1791-1857) would have been age 53 when he married Hazy Brock in 1844 and she would have been age 18.
**My theory - Wm. Hamilton (1781-1857) had a child with his first wife (Polly) who is the one who married Hazy Brock. Moreover, this Wm. may in fact be William James Bud Hamilton’s grandfather. Desperately seeking proof to this, if you can shed any light upon the subject please contact me.

Side Note : I lost contact with Brenda Hoots over a decade ago.
