HISTORY OF GREEN COUNTY, WISCONSIN, 1884:
"Thomas Hamilton lives on section 34. He has a farm of 240 acres, with fine
buildings. When quite young, his father George Hamilton, moved to Edgar Co.,
Ill., where he died in 1842. When sixteen years of age (1838), Thomas took his
fortune in his own hands. Leaving home he went to Winnebago Co., Ill., worked
at farm work until 1842, when he came to Green county. The first few years he
worked summers in the villages of the county, and in the winter in the pineries,
running in the season on rafts below; thus he was occupied until he was married
in 1845. His wife was Levanche Randall. By this marriage six children were
born, five of whom are living--George, residing in Brodhead; Thomas, of
Winnebago Co., Ill.; Alexander, in the same county; Emma, wife of Myron Bliss,
of Winnebago Co., Ill.; Eva, wife of F. Burke, resides at Virginia City, Nev.;
Lenora, wife of Isaac Davis. She died at the residence of her father in
February, 1875. In March, 1866, Mr. Hamilton was bereaved by the death of his
wife. He was again united in marriage with Mrs. Jane Forbes, widow of Isaac
Forbes. She was living at the time of marriage in Davids township, Stephenson
Co., Ill. By her first marriage she had two children--Emma and William. Emma
married Mr. Hamilton's son George. William Forbes is married and lives in
Brodhead. Thomas Hamilton has by his second wife five children--Walter E., born
in 1868; Josephine E., born in 1870; Kate Maud, born in 1873; Scott, born in
1878; and Eleanor, born in 1881."
