This is taken from the "Hamilton, Jacobs, Livingstone, Coverdale, Gwinnup genealogical Biographical Pictoral History" Book printed in 1988. Researched & Compiled by Glen Clark Hamilton.Since so much has changed since 1988 I am trying to see how far back I can go and compile a new book.
My GGG Uncle Glen (a Historian) passed on a few months ago. So, I only have a book to go by now. I got this book a week ago and I am still trying to make connection on the people included in this book. As I put things together on the Gwinnup Family I will post them. So anyway If you have any information you can add please email me.
