    I am descended from John Hamilton, born 1798 in Gray, Maine; died 1847 Garland, Maine, but have no record of his parents. Somewhere in my research I had read that he was descended from a Scots POW. I know there were many Hamiltons in Cumberland County, Maine, but have not yet made any link between them and my line. Has anyone been able to bridge that gap? I am also descended from Duncan Stewart, taken at Worcester, and Robert Dunbar, captured at Dunbar.


    • Doug, I can’t tell you if you are related to our John Hamilton without referring to our Yahoo Group. We have an online tree that might help but the best thing is to join our John Hamilton Yahoo Group where you’ll be in touch with researchers of John Hamilton of Concord. My husband is a descendant of Duncan Stewart, too! Do you know David Dunbar? I am going to also invite you to join our Scottish War Prisoners Yahoo group and give you the link to our NEW Scottish Prisoners of War blog/website! I am so glad you found us! I will be sending you two yahoo group invitations! 🙂

      Hi Doug. I think we are likely related. I have been tracing my Hamilton family and I think I believe I know who the parents are for your John Hamilton and my Ezekiel Hamilton. I believe your John and my Ezekiel were likely brothers. I would love to discuss this with you. I have reasonable proof that traces their parents, grand parents and great grandparents.
