He married (3) UNKNOWN Abt. 1894 in Arkansas. Notes for WILLIAM ALEXANDER HAMILTON: The actual age and date of birth of William Alexander Hamilton is somewhat confusing if one is to believe the ages given in the various Census Reports where he was found to be listed as well as his marriage record in Johnson Co., KY. Marriage 1855 age 19 > b. 1836 Census 1875 age 36 > b. 1839 Census 1885 age 52 > b. 1823 !!

Ashford Motz Alice {Edna Alice} Morris {William Maurice} Garfield ========================================= NOTE 1: {Esther and Howard Hamilton , son of Ashford Hamilton, traveled to Topeka, Kansas and did some research on William Hamilton. They put this information in a letter to Bette (Hamilton), Maurice Hamiltons daughter. I have a copy of this letter.} They stated the following: Genealogy of the Hamilton Family William Hamilton Born: 1839/40 Place: Kentucky Died: 1922/23 William Hamilton was born in the State of Kentucky in the year 1839/40 {My note: if this is true then he was 16 yr when he married Hannah Baldridge} He was married three times. His first wife was Mae Baldridge. {Hannah Baldridge} There were four children born to this family; Ira (1857), John (1859), Mary (1862), Americas (1865)* William's second marriage was to Louise L. Galloway and to them five children were born. Ashford (1872), Motz (1875), Alice (1877), William Maurice (1879), Garfield (1884 ) According to the 1875 Census Records only Ashford and Motz were born in Hays City, Kansas. Also the Census listed William as a Farmer. The family came to the State of Kansas from the State of Indiana. The family moved to a homestead at the site of Hamilton, Washington. It is said that William "Bill" Hamilton was a promoter. And he later sold the township of Hamilton, Washington for the sum of $48,000.00 Louise Galloway Hamilton was born in the state of Tennessee in the year 1843/44. She passed away in the year 1886 from the measles. After the death of Louise, William left the family in Washington and traveled to Arkansas. There he married a 15 year old girl by whom he had a third family of five sons which they named after the presidents of the United States. The oldest son of Louise and William Hamilton, Ashford , was 15 years old when his father left for Arkansas. Ashford felt the responsibility of taking care of his brothers and sister and devoted his early life to this task. So it was not until he was 36 years old that he married Matilda Cora Jackson, of Seattle, WA.(**) It was sometime after Ashford and Matilda had children (***) that he saw his father again. He came to Hamilton, Wa. on a business trip and to see his children. He then returned to Arkansas never to be seen again. After the death of William, 1922/23, an attorney was sent to his son Ashford where he was asked to sign papers releasing rights of the estate. It was stated that the widow had very small children and they would receive full benefit of the property. End notes: *The following information was supplied by Ashfords children, Joe Hamilton, Ruth Hamilton Picker, and Howard Hamilton. *The dates of birth are estimates as the 1875 Census Records lists only the names and ages. This is taken from the 1875 Census in Topeka, Kansas - Hays City-Big Creek Township-Ellis Co.-Kansas-page 11. The records also show Louise was born in Tennessee although it is thought to be Louisiana. ** Maurice never saw his father after he left them as children but did correspond with him prior to his father's death. He also handled some paper work on sales of property for his father according to his daughter, Bette. *** On or after 1916 ======================================== More About WILLIAM ALEXANDER HAMILTON: Fact 1: June 18, 1855, m.

Galloway. William and family show up in Kansas on 1875 census with new wife and two children that where born in Kansas. KS census says that they came from Indiana to Kansas. ============================= Notes: The following references were derived by Carol Ryan, from the book called, " A Small Branch From The Baldridge Family Tree, The Descendents Of William Baldridge of Russell County, Virginia. " The author is: Clarence E Shepard 2641 Delmonte Ave Dayton, Ohio 45419. Carol Ryan wrote: Hannah Baldridge was the daughter of William Baldridge and Hannah Estep. William was the first child of William and Mary Baldridge of Russell County, Virginia. William the son had two wifes and 16 children. Hannah was the 6th child from his first marriage. The book says after 1860 and prior to 1870 this family left eastern Kentucky and they settled in Skagit Co Washington at a place called Hamilton. From eastern Kentucky records two children are known, Ira and John. Mary and America may have been born in the other county or state which is why It doesn't show them in the book. There are about 50 people with the last name Hamilton in the book. They are the spouses and children of other members of the Hamilton line that have married into the family, possibly siblings or cousins.

Buried Hamilton Cemetery, Hamilton, Skagit Co., WA =============================== He made a voice tape for the Historical Society and it is either in Burlington or La Conner, WA. {Might also check with the Mt.Vernon Societies.} =============================== NOTE: Letter from Bette, Maurice's daughter, to her cousin, Howard and Ruth Hamilton. May 1981. Please let me introduce myself - I am Bette Hamilton Willson and I believe you are my first cousin ! My brother, Connie, sent on a copy of your letter to him , re: The Family, cause I've kept a little better track then he has. It is so great to know someone is doing what you two ar doing. I have a tiny piece of paper - in Papa's writing, that he wrote all his brother's & sisters, mother, father. I don't have dates but i have scraps of memories, I loved to have Papa tell me about his childhood. And as I grew older, he told me more. This may turn out like a story - and you'll have to pick out whats's useful. First, I'll duplicate the piece of paper: 1/2 brothers & sisters Ira - Viola, Annabelle, Irene, Mabel + 1 [couldn't remember] Mary - Harry Craig [child] John - Albert, Harry, Victoria, Jenny, Eloise, Henry, Edward Americas - Hettie, Minnie, Lilly, Eunice, Perry, Josephine, Ted at the top of this part is written, "Mae Baldridge" and below "Americas" is written "married Brewster" There was a "Hettie" living in Mt. Vernon that always called Papa, Uncle Maurice. Perhaps that Hettie, was Americas daughter! William Hamilton and Louise Galloway. Grandma Louise was from Louisiana {Papa's memory} and died when Papa was about 6 or 7 years old. He didn't know to much about her. Papa was the baby & I suspect there was a lot of conflict and trouble. He's never talk much about that, altho his memory about describing in detail things that happened when he was 4 years old was excellent. Papa had asthma and remembered it very early. Thru his life it flaired up under stress, so that's partly what I'm having early conflict on. Grandpa William must have been a rogue. He was certianly much married. I don't know the story on the mother of the afore mentioned 1/2 brother's and sister's. But some 15 or 20 years ago, a man and his sister got in touch with Papa, and they were from Pennsylvania {I'm not sure - may have ben Indiana or Ohio}. They had traced William to Washington - he had left their mother or grandmother ( I was away at the time & the story wasn't clear) in Pennsylvania. And I had always been told he came from Kentucky. I don't know their ages - so they would have been quite old if it had been their mother. When Papa was about 7 - after his mother died, Grandpa William had a hotel in Hamilton Wash. which was quite a little town {Settlement ?} He sold the hotel & part of the sales condition was that he wanted to make the trip back to Kentucky and would be gone a year so the buyers were to board and room the children until he returned. When the year was up - they were put out on their own. They all went to a little house that belonged to their father but had been abandoned. The rest of the children he wrote down: Ashford - Joe, Ruth, Howard Motz - Amanda, Daisy Alice - married Swafford - Wesley, Minnie, Alonzo Garfield - 0 Maurice - Ben, David, Paul, Bette, Conrad Once they were in the house, a young man, gambler by trade, moved in with them to see that they were alright. He saw to it they went to school & got enough to eat. Papa remembered being very sick & finally being able to drink canned milk that young man brought him. And he taught Papa to play any card game, altho when I knew him, he never gambled & would never bet. He may have as a younger man. Grandpa William never returned to Wash. - but settled in Oklahoma - where he started another family. He evidently got in touch with Papam abd thru him, sold some properties he still owned in Hamilton, WA. They corresponded a bit - then finally one of his Oklahoma son's sent Papa work he'd died. Papa was born William Maurice Hamilton June 21, 1879.He died Aug. 12, 1969 My mother was Lula Mae Wolfkill Hamilton. But first he married to Cora Nelson of Seattle, a schoolteacher. They had Ben, who was killed in an auto accident, July 4th, 1931. Then David who died about 1965 in Arizona. David had several children and one son is a police officer in Yuma. Also a daughter lives there and her married name is Campbell. I think he had four children in all. Someplace I have a letter the daughter in Yuma wrote to Papa after he passed away. I answered it, but she never replied. Baby Paul only lived several weeks, and Cora died about the same time of "Childhood Fever". Papa loved her very much and I think it was a great tragedy for him. My mother & father were married Sept. 20, 1925. I was born April 12, 1927, and my brother, Conrad Dell, was born July 9 1933. I have one daughter, Bonnie Jean, born April 17, 1946 (She has 4 little girls) My brother married Jean Wondrack, June 12, 1954 and they have three children, Dana Joy, Scott Joseph and Troy John Hamilton. My! This has gotten to be quite a letter. I'm sorry I didn't answer before. This past year has been rather hectic, and in the past few weeks my daughter has been quite ill. Had surgery Tuesday & I've been busy ! I work for three eye physicians, so working plus doing for "my daughter's little family has been a full time proposition. I got home a little earlier tonite determined to get this done and off to you. So please consider that I am kinda tired as I write this. I remember Uncle Motz, but he died when I was quite small. I have seen Amanda and Daisy a few times over the years. Also, when Ashford & his wife died in Monroe, WA. about 15 years ago, I was home and attended their funeral with Papa. Papa made a tape for the Historical Society and it's in either Bellington or La Conner, WA. I have never heard it, but will try to locate it. If any of these bits and peices fit what Uncle Ashford passed along - I'd like to know. Nice to know we have cousins out there ! Tell me about your family.

In 1961, Mildretta established and along with her husband, operated the Old Schoolhouse Museum in Silver City. She has authored three popular historical books on Owyhee County.

Mildretta spent over six decades exploring the Owyhees on horseback and has bounced many a mile over backroads, wagon ruts and cow trails on the seat of an old pickup, long before there were four-wheel drive rigs and BLM maintained accessways. In 1950 she accepted the challenge of being census taker for Owyhee County, seeking out the most remote dwellings over the expansive and desolate territory, some of which she had to accomplish on horseback. Intrigued and absorbed in an area rich with one of the most colorful pasts of any in the state, Mildretta has dedicated all of her spare time to locating historical sites, digging relics, collecting antiques, hunting indian artifacts and rock hounding in this country. She has written many articles on local and county history published over the years in newspapers covering the general regions.
