To descendants of Frances Alexander Hamilton/Hambleton b ca 1760 Va, lived East Tn until ca 1819 when living in Lawrence Co Al...
Hamilton DNA testing from a lineal descendant of Jacob Hamilton shows he was a son of Frances.Family Tree DNA kit #149308 represents this Jacob's line...and it matches 35/37 with kit #15225, known descendant of Frances - only mismatches are at fast-moving markers 464a-d, and 570.Frances was known to have had a son named Jacob by 2nd wife Mary, but no records of him existed to tie him to the family.
Jacob was md to Elizabeth Campbell in Madison Co Al 1 Nov 1821 (see Mad Co Al Marriage Records. I can't find him on the Alabama census records of 1830 or 1840, but census records beginning 1850 in Madison Co Al show all of Jacob's children were born in Alabama.He was likely the Jacob who is found on the 1847 Beat #3 Tax Record of Walker Co Al near H.W. Hamilton, a son of Barton Hamilton.
