I am researching Robert Hamilton, Jr. from Hamilton Ridge near Beattyville Kentucky. His parents were Robert Hamilton, Sr. and Lieura Etta Marcum. This is my father's family.
I am also researching Virginia Leigh Ralston from Indianapolis, Indiana. Her parents were James David Ralston and Pauline Meece Ralston Pleasants. This is my mother's family.
It is evident from my research that both sides are heavily Scots-Irish. It also appears that my mother's family includes a strong dose of German and Swiz. I guess that makes us a normal, all-American mutt-type family.
